Last week, we made the trip into Portland to do the typical holiday returns. We spent the afternoon going from store to store making returns, exchanges while taking advantage of the post-holiday sales.
When planning for that type of trip into Portland, there are so many things to remember.. gift receipts, shopping lists and most of all – the right club/reward(or frequent shopper) cards. I’m not a big fan of those types of cards. It’s just one more step in the shopping process that you have to take to save money or be rewarded for shopping in a specific store. I know you can often manage those accounts with a phone number, but not always… or worse. You have to have the card with you.
Enter my new favorite app: CardStar
