Did you know that you can get free gift cards to pay for your favorite things?  I love getting gift cards – especially when they’re free.

Is there a pair of shoes or a designer handbag that you’ve been eyeing for months? If you’re anything like me, you probably don’t need another pair of shoes.  But we can never have enough.

It’s hard to justify for things we don’t need, especially since we’re trying to build wealth.

What if I were to tell you that you can get them for free using free gift cards?

Accumulate enough free gift cards and it’s yours.  You can wear them guilt-free knowing you got them for free.  However you want to spend your gift cards is entirely up to you.
