There’s just 12 days until my kids go back to school and I feel like this has been the fastest school holidays ever which pretty much just equals me feeling super under-prepared for February 1st.
Besides the distraction that has been our renovation and with it our gypsy life existence over the Christmas holiday break, the lack of sunshine and long beach days means that from the time school broke on December 16th until now has felt like the weirdest Summer holidays ever. You feel me?
Thankfully we aren’t yet required to provide tablets for our kids, so that’s one less expense to avoid again this year, but I know a lot of primary schools are these days and besides that financial outlay, the book packs always set me back more than I’m happy to pay.
Since school uniforms are also now sold at The Warehouse, it makes sense to do all your back to school shopping there within the five brands of The Warehouse Group* because when you spend $200 in store in a single transaction you will receive a $20 gift card (limited to 1 per customer per brand – this enables you to get one at each store) as you make your back to school purchases using either your Warehouse Money Visa Card or Warehouse Money Purple Visa Card.
With all credit cards, it’s important to ensure you pay off your balance in full each month to really make your money work for you. And because there are great incentives like $20 back for purchases over $200, it makes sense to plan your shopping expeditions carefully to ensure you collect these gift cards along the way.
If you haven’t applied for a Warehouse Money credit card yet, apply using my special promo code WMBK17, and if your application is up and running before 3 Feb, the first 5 people can get a $50 Gift Card!*. You can put that towards those back to school purchases!
Along with the standard benefits of the card at The Warehouse, you can also get amazing offers with other leading retailers, such as Noel Leeming, Torpedo7 and Warehouse Stationery, so you’re always getting great deals and offers right throughout the year. And don’t forget, with every purchase you make with your visa, you’re also always earning rewards – or Purple Dollars as they are called with the Warehouse Money Purple Visa Card – which you can use right throughout the year. That’s a win-win I’d say!
I KNOW WHERE I’LL BE DOING MY BACK TO SCHOOL SHOPPING IN THE NEXT TWELVE DAYS – HOW ABOUT YOU?
