Can you believe back to school time is almost here?!
Two weeks and my baby will be waiting at the bus stop to board a 13 year adventure. Sounds serious when you think of it like that.
She is totally ready to go and I thought I was ready too, but reality is starting to sink in as the time is getting closer. Our routine is going to have a drastic change. Bedtimes, bath time, mealtime at regular hours, homework, making the most of our weekends, all these thoughts are becoming a little bit stressful.
Want to know my secret to getting myself prepared without the added stress of the hustle and bustle of back to school shopping? I’m trying to do a lot of it online using my
hoarded RBC rewards points.
Hi, I’m Virginia and I’m a
points hoarder RBC Rewards points collector. My husband thinks I’m stingy, but when it come to times like back to school, Christmas, weddings or birthdays I love having a cushion of points to fall back on if money is tight. Did I mention we had $5000 in unexpected expenses last month, thank you very much Mr. Hurricane.
Want to know my secret to getting a boat load of extra bonus points? … read on.
Did you know by shopping at the RBC Rewards eMall and using your RBC rewards card you can earn at least 1 extra RBC Rewards points per $ spent using your card (but some are much higher like 5-12 extra points per dollar!) The eMall at RBCRewards.com has up to 250 retailers to please all the kiddos on your back to school shopping list!
Look at what I picked up for Back to school.
Not only the great clothes but approx. 900 bonus RBC Reward Points!!
Yes you read that right, 900 extra points for doing exactly what I would have done anyway, but by just doing it in the comfort of my own home!
I got these back to school essentials from RBC eMall retailers Gap Kids, Old Navy, Walmart, and Sport Check. There is such a great selection of shops for kids of all ages.
If you’re new to RBC Rewards Points, they have created a few videos to help you better understand the perks involved. Check out the videos on the Royal Bank website.
Plus if you’re looking to use some of your
hoarded earned points there are over 50 shops you can use your RBC rewards points to get gift cards for, plus you can get merchandise directly from the RBC points online catalogue, or shop from over 100,000+ products from Best Buy and Future shop!
You really can’t go wrong, who doesn’t love extra RBC Reward points?!
