Does a Free Walmart Gift Cards offer really work?

Does a Free Walmart Gift Cards offer really works?

The Internet is full with free Walmart gift cards offers, so you got to ask yourself one question: does this kind of offers really works? Why would anybody give $500 or $1000 to complete stranger?Well, the truth is this offers are really legit. The whole process is very simple:

1. Go to the website which gives free Walmart gift cards,

2. Leave your contact info (usually name and email address, sometimes cell number or physical address)

3.  After a few moments you will get your gift card in your email and you can spend it in any Walmart store you desire, or pass it on to somebody else.

One of main reasons why many people don't believe in this kind of offers is because of  the question: Why would anybody give me something that valuable just for my email address or something like that?It must be some kind of scam!Well,it's not and  the answer is simple: Marketing!

Big companies are spending millions of dollars on online and offline advertising and many times they really can't tell if some marketing campaign is working or not. When they spend big chunk of money on TV commercial they must to pay for it no matter what and there is big chance that commercial will not be noticed by targeted audience.

It's different with this kind of promotion, free Walmart Gift Cards offers. They will give you your gift card, it will cost them only small portion of TV advertising and, because you had to leave your contact info, they will get targeted audience for future advertising. You will get one gift card and they'll get someone to send they advertising campaigns over and over again. Even better for them: they don't really give you cash. When you decide to spend your gift card you will get products they bought on wholesale discount prices, so the whole deal is even cheaper for them.

So, if you are interested in getting free gift cards and can tolerate few promotional emails in you inbox this is win-win situation for everybody involved.

Best Christmas Shopping Tips
Can you believe how close we are to Christmas?  Got your Christmas shopping all done?  Of course not, or you would not be reading this.  I want to help eliminate most if not all of your Christmas shopping anxieties.    Giving gifts should be fun and exciting.  All your shopping could be completed in a lazy afternoon without leaving your house.  Is this really possible?  Of course!  Read the rest of the story.
It's no mystery that shopping online save you both time and money.    Additionally, online shopping is going to save you the stress that usually accompanies Christmas shopping.
Don't become over zealous with your credit and start buying everything that looks like a good deal.  This will cause stress for years to come.
Amazon is my favorite shopping place.  It's not because they have the fanciest site.  It's because Amazon has partnered with so many highly rated companies like Disney and will offer you better deals than you can get on the retailers home site!  Amazon has low over head.  Amazon deals in large volumes of merchandise.  At Amazon, the big secret is free shipping and no sales tax charged for most orders (some restrictions apply)!
They use the one cart shopping method.  You can make purchases from thousands of partners and still pay only once.  Most orders over are eligible for free Super Saver Shipping.  If you sign up for Amazon's credit card, they will load it with $30!  Thirty dollars more to spend.  keep the cash and toss the card in the trash!
If it's sold, Amazon has it.  And I do mean everything.  Gotta be legit and legal.  Know what I mean.  It it's sold, then Amazon carries it.
Are you a disorganized shopper?  Don't worry because you are going to look like a rock star whether your organized or not.   Just stay on your budget.  If it's a thousand bucks, don't go over that amount!  Nothing hurts worse than paying off this years Christmas shopping with next year's Christmas bonus!
Even though I have talked up Amazon, you may be thinking that is the only place to shop.  Surely, not.  Google online coupons.  Most of the time, they are loss leaders and you can score some deals.  Check the shipping fees and sales tax before you place an order.  The tax alone will break the bank.  I bet that even our state congressional leaders shop online to avoid sales tax...shh!!!
My Top 10 Shopping Tips
  •     Stay at home and do all your shopping online.
  •     I go for free shipping offers.
  •     Buy from sites that do not charge sales tax.
  •     Take advantage of online gift wrapping services.
  •     Ship your long distance Christmas gifts from the online retailer (hey, it's free!)
  •     Use gift cards and act like you are really smart.
  •     Search Google for coupons.
  •     To qualify for free shipping, combine your orders.
  •     Research Christmas gifts like toys at Matel and Hasbro.  Manufacture sites are helpful.
  •     Choose major retailers because their return policies are generally more liberal.  It's more efficient.

The Meaning of Pearl Jewelry

Birthstone for June, pearls jewelry are recognized as the emblem of modesty, chastity and purity. They have also come to symbolize a happy marriage and hence it is no wonder that freshwater pearl ring is much preferred by girls during their engagement days or by brides as their primary jewelry. Besides, pearls are the only gems created by a living organism having an array of fascinating colors, shapes, sizes and origin and hence have a charm of its own. Pearl jewelry is often found as family heirlooms, passed on from a grandmother to mother and from a mother to the daughter.Being the most magical and feminine of all gems, pearl jewelry has long been considered as one of the most romantic items that can be gifted to a lady. As a matter of fact, freshwater pearl sets go beautifully well with any neckline, whatever the attire could be. However, natural pearls are rare and their price tags forbid many and so, most of the freshwater pearl brooches sold now is made of cultured pearls though one could hardly tell the difference between a good quality cultured pearl and a natural pearl.

Cultured pearls come in two primary forms - pearls that are grown in saltwater and those that are cultured in freshwater. Since saltwater cultured pearls are much higher in quality as compared to their freshwater cousins, saltwater cultured pearl jewelry is much more expensive. Cultured pearl jewelry is usually available as pearl necklace, pearl earrings, pearl pendants, pearl rings, pearl bracelets and so on. Pearl jewelry forms a perfect wedding present, birthday or Christmas gift. Also, it can work as a classic accessory for the bride in the form of a superb bridal pearl set consisting of pearl earrings and a finely crafted pearl necklace.

Cultured pearls come in a wide array of colors, shapes and sizes and their assortments are equally fascinating from wholesale pearls jewelry store. To satisfy the customer craze, jewelers produce such artistic costume jewelry ranging from smallish Akoya pearls to big black Tahitian pearls, Japanese Mikimoto pearls, South Sea pearls and the spherical Mabe pearls – each of these items seem as good as the other, making the buyer spoilt for choices. And that is why purchasing pearl jewelry can be a tricky business if you are not fully familiar with the various available options, quality and the price structure of the various kinds of pearls. So perhaps the best way to secure pearl jewelry is to buy from a source that offers a return warranty if at least the quality is not satisfactory.

Incidentally, there was a time when pearl jewelry was rated as one of the highest priced items but with the advent of widespread pearl farming now, the price of pearl jewelry has become quite affordable to most people.

Fitness Expert Gives Top 10 Grocery Shopping Tips
Grocery shopping can be such a nightmare, especially when you're trying to lose weight. There are so many distractions, confusing labels, and all kinds of temptations.

What's a person to do?

Here are my top 10 grocery shopping tips to keep you on track and fueling your body to achieve your goals.

1. Create a menu- if you fail to plan you plan to fail. Going to the store without your meal planned for the week is a sure fire way to fail. Take 30 minutes before heading out to check recipes for the necessities of the week.

2. Eat before you go- we have all heard that before but it is a proven fact that you will spend more purchasing unnecessary food if you shop on an empty stomach. You WILL be more tempted by the newest product or marketing gimmicks.

3. Perimeter shop- outside aisles of most grocery stores contains fresh produce, dairy and butcher sections. Fill your cart so there so it doesn't allow room for the processed foods found in the center aisles.

4. Shop solo- it is quicker and there isn't outside influence to go off the reservation.

5. Stick to your list- this saves your budget as well as your waistline. That what lists are for- TO FOLLOW.

6. Look for and avoid hidden sugars- these include corn syrup, dextrose, fructose, glucose, glucofrutose, honey, molasses, maple syrup, maltose, sucrose and artificial sweeteners. If you read labels carefully they will be easy to spot.

7. Read labels- The nutrition label will also list total grams of fat per serving along with amounts of saturated fat and cholesterol. Watch for and avoid palm and palm kernel oil, shortening, butter, chocolate, milk chocolate, cocoa butter, egg and egg yolk solids, lard, tallow, suet, whole-milk solids, glycerol esters, and mono-or-diglycerides.

8. Avoid man-made trans fats and saturated fats at all cost- trans fats are the worst artery-clogging, cancer-causing substance you can put in your body.

9. Always look for the highest fiber content products- especially in breads and cereals.

10. Be aware of "health" foods posing as healthy foods- to be fat-free, 33% less fat, low fat the manufactures must put something as a substitute to enhance the flavor. More often than not these products contain more hidden evils than the original.

Bonus Tip #11 - Join a local fitness boot camp that offers FREE grocery store tours. This can be a HUGE help. A quality tour will show you how to shop, where to spend your time and what to watch out for.

Grocery shopping when your trying to lose weight doesn't have to be such a daunting task. Follow these ELEVEN tips and you'll be sure to beat the grocery shopping demons.

Good luck and remember...

Advantages and Disadvantages of Online Shopping

Online shopping is a multi billion business and is constantly growing. Many individuals favour this kind of shopping because of ease. For shoppers who work for lengthy hours, it would be hard to visit a store during standard trade hours. Online retailers allow orders twenty four hours a day and shoppers can easily shop from their place of convenience and whenever they have free moment available. As well, online shopping gives the shopper the facility to compare the products with easiness. This prevents the bother of visiting different conventional stores and finding difficult to remember details like cost and features. Online shopping is predominantly useful for those with limited mobility as they can shop with out any difficulty.

Some items may only be available in certain locations of the country and this makes comparing the prices difficult for traditional high street shoppers. By online shopping, products from around the world can be purchased, by comparing details and price of the items. An item which is a regional speciality can be bought online without going in person to that location. In most occasions, the prices are cheaper online than in the high street stores. Online shoppers can send gifts to family members or friends as a surprise. It also saves the time of buying the gifts in high street, packing it carefully and shipping the gift.

While there are numerous advantages of online shopping there are some hassles and fear regarding them. Identity theft is the most key worry for those who fear about online shopping. But threat of identity theft with online shopping through a secure website is comparatively little. Most highly regarded online retailers will give a secure website for shoppers. If the client is unsure about the security there is always a choice of calling customer service to leave the order. One more worry is about dealing with returns. In majority of cases the returns procedure with online retailers is quite easy like returning the product to traditional store. But some time the shopper will be financially liable for the cost of shipping the product back to the online vendor. This can be expensive if the product is oversize. Like wise some the products are not returnable except they have technical damage. Always read the return policy before you buy.


Another problem of online shopping is encountering misleading product information or shopper buying a wrong item. The simplest solution is to contact the customer service to verify whether or not the product for sale will suit your needs. Carefully read the fine print before you make a purchase. These include information such as product description, payment options, cost of the product, taxes and shipping and return policy. Another problem with online shopping is slow internet connection or a web site loading very slowly. Most of the reputable online retailers have dedicated servers with less than ten second loading time.

But the above problems are almost fully avoided if you shop in reputed online retailers These retailers have secure web sites and concern about identity theft is almost nil. In addition they have dedicated servers and make every effort to load the web pages within ten seconds. In addition the prices are much cheaper, as they sell products directly from the warehouses. Online shopping in reputable sites will not only safe and secure, they also give the pleasure of high street shopping at your home comfort.

Online Shopping Tips!
The holiday season is when it seems the world is clattering for you to shop 'til you drop! It can be a very stressful time for everybody involved, but it doesn't have to be. Save gas, time and money by shopping online this season! It can be a little tricky, but lucky this we have some online holiday shopping tips for you to make it that much easier!
Tinsel Tip #1: Make A List!
Write down exactly who you're gifting this year and what it is you're going to gift to each person. Not only will this list be your go-to guide when it's time to start shopping, it will also help you figure out if you've forgotten someone! If you already own a smartphone, you know that the multi tasking features like checkbook ledgers, alarms, reminders, calenders, and Internet all help you manage life a little easier. If you don't have a smartphone but you've been meaning to get one, this would be a great time to do it!
Tinsel Tip #2: De-clutter!
If you already know you're going to be replacing quite a few items for your kids (they grow up so fast!) why not go through the closets and find the stuff you know they or you won't be using again. Old video games, clothes, shoes, etc can all be sold or donated (donations can be written off at 'fair market value' come tax time). Make back some of the money you spent on gifts and do a good dead for a nice warm fuzzy feeling!
Tinsel Tip #3: Start Shopping NOW!
The longer you wait the more likely top items are going to be sold out. The closer an item gets to sold out, the higher the price climbs - so start your shopping as soon as possible! Black Friday (day after Thanksgiving) is always a good time to get started as its when the Christmas sales get going at ridiculously low prices. By getting what you need now, you not only save money, you can spend time relaxing and enjoying the decorations instead of rushing around!
Tinsel Tip #4: Search for Coupons and Price Compare!
Although it takes little effort, it can be exhausting traipsing around the Internet trying to find the best deal on the item you want. Instead of wasting time, use to compare prices at each place an item is sold. It can save you a good amount of money and time so check it out!
Tinsel Tip #5: Leave No Online Store Unvisited!
Everyone knows that is a fantastic place to buy books and music, but did you know that they also have an amazing grocery section, too? Many stores that mostly focus on one big-ticket item, like electronics ( for example) also often have booming deals on grocery and cleaning items, too. Knowing this can come in handy when you're trying to gather up enough purchases to make a minimum for free shipping or other coupon codes.
Tinsel Tip #6: Get Used to Used Stuff
There is a huge industry made up of selling items that were returned but not placed back on store shelves for a variety of reasons, from just the box being opened to small repairs being needed and made before reselling. Refurbished laptops, refurbished printers, and even refurbished cameras often go for a fraction of the price of a brand new version of the same item, with similar warranties. While something refurbished should be nearly new, other code words for gently used items include "open box," "store demo," and display item," which can mean anything from never touched to nearly broken. To avoid disappointment, make sure to get all the details before you buy. And no matter how good the deal, never buy unless there is some sort of return policy on your used electronics to ensure that you're protected if something happens to go wrong.
Tinsel Tip #7: Buy in Bulk
Bulk shopping isn't just for families with five kids - everyone can benefit from large purchases! What isn't normally known is that online purchases can be in bulk as well! From microwave popcorn to stocking stuffers, you can find those little things you're looking for for way less in bulk online! It saves time and money! And if you end up with a few extras, find friends to split the costs with!
Tinsel Tip #8: ONLY Use a Credit Card
It sounds less than budget friendly but it does have its perks. With so many shoppers in already overwhelmed stores it can be easy to get lost in the crowd. It makes sense to make a budget to stick to, but those big ticket purchases are better not bought with cash. When you make purchases with cash, check or debit cards, you get little to no buyer protection. Whereas when you use your credit card, you have a way to fight back if something goes wrong - and some cards offer extended warranties for free!
Tinsel Tip #9: Think Outside Your Season
It seems logical to gift items others can use in the winter season like coats, earmuffs, scarfs etc. But have you ever considered swimsuits, shorts, or sandals? These items are usually in clearance around this time of year and can be a great inexpensive way to gift to get ahead of the rising prices when the thaw comes, doubly so if you're planning a winter vacation to a hot spot!
Tinsel Tip #10: Keep Track of Return Policies & Receipts
The beautiful thing about being human is that every body is different, which can sometimes translate into you thinking a gift if perfect and the recipient thinking it's awful. When these situations arise, or others such as gift duplication or getting the wrong size or color or something, it can completely save a gift to have the receipt and return policy in your favor. It makes exchanges super easy. For big ticket purchases, remember to print out or screen capture the store's return policy at the time of purchase.
These online holiday shopping tips will help make your holiday season run that much smoother. Happy Shopping!

7 Shopping Tips That You Should Keep in Mind During a Divisoria Escapade
For those who wish to relax and unwind by treating themselves to a Divisoria shopping spree, here are several Manila shopping tips that you should keep in mind:
1. Go on a weekday
Divisoria in Manila, Philippines is a staple bargain-hunting spot in the metropolis. So, going here on weekends will surely put you in a large crowd of shoppers. It is best to go on a weekday to avoid long lines at the cashier and squeezing your way into stores just to get a certain item.
2. Dress appropriately
Shopping in Divisoria and in other neighboring Manila shopping malls, like 168 Mall, Tutuban, and Manila Textile Market, constitutes a lot of walking. Make sure to wear your most comfortable footwear and light clothes to make it easy for your to move around. In that way, you can focus on your shopping and not on your aching feet or sweaty shirts.
3. Always think of your safety
If you plan to go on a shopping spree in the bazaars, do not wear expensive jewelry or accessories and bring money just enough for your purchases. Also, avoid shopping during the evenings alone. Snatchers and pickpockets will target individuals, while they will generally ignore groups of two or more people.
4. Don't go shopping on an empty stomach
Shopping while your stomach is grumbling can be downright frustrating because you won't be able to focus on selecting the right items and in following your list and budget, as well. Grab a snack that's enough to keep you going from one shop to the other. A few sweets can also help you get by.
5. Haggle for lower prices
Remember that all the prices of goods are doubled and shop owners commonly set their prices a bit higher during the holiday season. So, try to ask for a lower price or even meet halfway with the seller. Also, don't stick to just one shop, look at other stores and see if they have lower prices for a particular item that you want to purchase.
6. Keep those receipts
Broken items, duplicate gifts, and wrong sizes, are unavoidable when shopping. Customers have the right to return or have these items replaced from the Manila shopping center it was purchased. And that is possible by presenting the receipt of your purchase. Never throw those little pieces of paper away; you'll never know when you're going to need it.
7. Find an accommodation nearby to spend the night
A city accommodation, like the Orion Hotel, presents a convenient place for accessing Manila's bargain shopping paradise. Staying in this hotel before or after your shopping spree will certainly provide you that much-needed rest. Situated on the 3rd level of the Primeblock Building in Tutuban Center, this hotel brings you close to the best deals in the metro.
By following all these Manila shopping tips, you'll surely have a fun-filled and hassle-free Divisoria adventure.

How to Verify a Coach Handbag Authenticity

I wrote an article on this a few years back but I wanted to give this followup article. There is always a question as to if a Coach Handbag is authentic or not. Distributors that make fake Coach Handbags are getting even better with there reproductions it is getting harder and harder these days to tell the difference.

That being said, I found a sure fire way to find out if a COACH handbag is authentic or not. Especially if your shopping for the handbag on eBay. Its really very simple. Coach has been recording the serial numbers of there bags for a while now, especially there newer bags. If you find a handbag that you have a question as to if it is authentic or not just take get the serial number and call Coach on there 1-800 line. You can get the number from Give that serial number to the customer service agent and he/she will tell you if the handbag is authentic or not. It is that simple. Don't try to take the handbag to a store as the clerks are not equipped to answer such a question.

Secondly, holder handbags are a different story. Yes, Coach has been recording the serial numbers of there handbags for a while but some of the older handbags are just not in this database the customer service representative have access to. In this case you will have to take a step of faith and send the handbag into COACH for them to evaluate it. They will send the purse back with a authenticity letter or a letter stating that the handbag is fake.


So on older handbags how are they able to evaluate the handbag?

Well, it seams that COACH has been sticking with the same fabric for there handbags for years. They are able to evaluate the fabric as well as the stitching techniques to say yea or na to an handbags authentic character. One other tell sign is on older style bags, if the interior patch says made in Italy, Costa Rica, or United States, and there is no misspelling of the words - the item is most certainly authentic. But would still check out the serial number with Coach.

I hope this followup give you a easier time in evaluating COACH merchandise.
