Just have to say…..More quilting money

So, a while back I had a blog post about more money for quilting.  It was using a couple of grocery store apps called Ibotta and Checkout51.  They let you earn money back on everyday things you buy at the grocery store. It really is stuff you already buy.  Bread, bacon, potatoes etc…

I am not usually a big proponent of apps or shopping apps.  However, when I saw this on the nightly news I had to look.  I decided I would give it a try.  Just my nature to try something at least once.

This brings me to my point.  I needed some fusible web, and a couple of pieces of Kona, and a couple of other miscellaneous items.  I spent about 90$, then with my coupons got it down to $61.00.  I used 3-$20.00 gift cards I got instantly form the Ibotta  shopping app (because I had been using it at the grocery store) when I cashed in and paid $1.01 for my bag of goodies.  Then scanned my Joann’s receipt into the same Ibotta app and earned an additional $6.00 back for next time.  I love a great deal, especially when it involves my favorite stuff.

I try not to take money out of the regular budget to feed my quilting addiction, so it makes me really happy when I can get a bag of goodies and pay nothing for it (or at least very little) and no one is the wiser.  Just thought I would mention it for those who have to eat and quilt and sometimes hide their quilting purchases.  Sort of free money.  I would love to send you a link as I can earn points, but that is not why I am telling you.  It is just so us quilters/crafters can feed our habit without feeling too guilty.  If you are interested, please email me at labrewer@gmail.com and I will send you a link.

Even if you don’t like to buy fabrics @ Joanns, they sell plenty of other supplies we all need.  In the words of my daughter, “just sayin”.  Have a great Day.

Happy Sewing

  1. That sounds great – I don’t do apps, but it really saved you a bunch of money. As I figure it, you basically got that free, and $4.99 for next time. =)

  2. I had not heard about that so thank you for the info. I don’t buy most of the goods you can get coupons for in the grocery. But always looking for ways to save for quilting and sewing. I don’t buy fabric at Jo Ann’s anymore but the rest is always nice to have a discount for. I sometimes get thread and other notions there because Jo Ann’s is so close.
