Frugal Friday: Gathr ~ A Company that Gives You Products!

A friend recently introduced me to Gathr. When I first read what she “bought” for $20/month, I thought it sounded too good to be true. After looking into it and asking a bunch of questions, though, it sounds like a great deal.

Here’s a summary of what it is and how it works. Gathr offers bundle packages, pre-packaged or custom made, that you buy for a set amount a month. These packages include great products like:

  •          $10 Amazon Gift card/month
  •          $10 Living Social credit/month
  •          $10 Target Gift card/month
  •          $10 Toys ‘R’ Us gift card/month
  •          Ad-free Pandora subscription
  •          Shop-Runner subscription (free 2-day shipping at certain retailers)
  •          Identity theft, malware protection
  •          Magazine subscriptions (National Geographic and more)
  •          And so much more!

I wanted to package my own for $20/month, so I was given 3 choices + a monthly bonus + cash back at priceline.com. I chose the $10 Amazon gift card (monthly bonus), $10 Target gift card, $25 Restaurant.com e-gift card, and online subscription to Consumer Reports ($6.95 value).  So, for $20/month that I pay, I get $51.95 worth of products/gift cards!

Now, would I regularly subscribe to Consumer Reports or even buy monthly restaurant.com certificates? No. . . but that is a “bonus” beyond  the $20 that I would spend at Target and Amazon.

The best part is that there is no expiration on the gift card codes. So, every month that I renew my subscription with Gathr, I just email or text myself my codes. For example, yesterday I opened my account, went to “My Stuff,” and redeemed my Amazon code. This simply put $10 credit, to be used any time, in my Amazon account. I also texted myself my Target code, and it was available on my phone to be scanned at Target (which I used yesterday, in fact, to get some AMAZING deals on diapers!).

Gathr promises no commitment and allows you to cancel at anytime. So far, I’m loving it! 🙂

If you’d like to give it a try, you can sign up here. This is my own referral link, which will give both you and me an additional (one-time) $10 Amazon gift card as a thank you if you join using my link!

Don’t you love it when companies give you products/money?! 😉

{On Fridays, I attempt to pass along a frugal tip I have learned or am attempting to learn. I love a good deal, and I love to help our family stay within the budget by being frugal in every area of life!}
