Visa Rewards Everyday


*Sponsored Post*



When I spend money I usually use cash or debit to make my purchases. To be honest, I don't buy anything with my credit cards unless it's a major purchase or at a restaurant. I'm the guy that likes to collect all the money for a food bill at the end of a large party to collect reward points on the bill. Visa Canada approached and explained to me that I can make small purchases on my Visa card that will earn me rewards so why not give it a try. Starting today for the next 5 days I will make small purchases via my Visa card that I already own. We'll see what kind of rewards I can gain by doing this everyday for the next 5 days. I will document/post/tweet my purchases and I know for sure a "Wobbly Pop" and food will be involved. So follow on Twitter with the hashtag #visaeveryday for details of my expenditures as well as others involved with Visa.

Now what's in it for you? If you send any message/tweet including @clickflickca and the hashtag #visaeveryday It will automatically enter you for a chance to win a $50 pre-paid Visa card. Enter everyday for a chance to win.

I will use @TwtrTwtrChknDnr to select my winner. This contest is only open to Canadians.




Day 1 Purchase



Attended the Toronto Raptors game and had some pregame food.



2 Hot Dogs

1 Pizza Slice

1 Coke

Total: $20.77




Later on the game my friend and I got hungry again. We decided on more snacks and treats!

1 Nachos

2 Creemore Tallboys

Total: $30.25

Day 2 Purchase

Headed out with some friends for some late night grub and drinks at Joey Toronto restaurant.






Calamari $11.99

Beef Dip $14.99

California Chicken burger $14.99

Pumpkin Spiced mini donuts $7.99

2 Gringo Cerveza-The Beach $5.50

Total: $60.46

VISA is trying to educate the consumer that our everyday purchases can lead to rewards. This is Day 2 of 5 days. I'm interested to see what I could be collecting myself maybe rewards to collect a digi cam. Let's see if it works.

Day 3 Purchase

Yeseterday I worked for most of the day. Bought lunch and some miscellaneous items.



Hamburger lunch $5.75



Magazine $5.99

Movie Gift Card $25.00

Total: $36.74

Day 4 purchase



Various items from the grocery store.

Total: $32.60

Day 5 purchase



Grilled chicken burger with fries $6.89



Wobbly pops $38.25

Total: $45.14

This concludes my 5 day expenditures. I will submit my totals to VISA and have them tell me what type of rewards I could have been eligible within this 5 day purchase. Remember this is to educate and to help build rewards with "everyday" purchases you make. Even I'm learning here. :-)

** Update**

So what type of savings or rewards could I have received with my purchases. As an example I could have earned 1% cash back on net purchases. My total expenditures was $225.96 so I would have earned $2.25 from the 5 day program. In terms of points, if I had a CIBC Aero Classic card I would have earned 125 airmiles (close to an Empire Theatre package for 2 @ 175 miles) points. So hopefully this gives you a detail of the purchase rewards you can achieve with proper money and spending management. Again, it all depends on the type of credit card/rewards plan you have included. If you need more info visit VISA

My programmer is trying to convince me to move to .net from PHP.
I have always disliked the idea because of the costs.

But he's tryiong none the less. I've been using Movable-type on a number of websites for about
a year and am nervous about switching to another platform.
I have heard fantastic things about blogengine.net. Is there
a way I can import all my wordpress posts into it? Any help would be really appreciated!

It's very straightforward to find out any topic on net as compared to books, as I found this piece of writing at this web site.
