Our FReepathon. I did not have any money to give more to my favorite site. However, I did have a few gift cards, with small balances just sitting around.
I checked each and everyone of them to see how much was left. I had 4 in total (one was for .50 cents, lol).
The other 3 totaled $30.77. I was not sure if a cc charge was applied for donations, so I contacted onyx whom referred me to Jim Robinson.
Those last 3 donations from NY posted, were from me and my gift cards, sitting there collecting dust.
If any of you have gift cards sitting around, check the balance. There is a minimum of $3.00 for cc donation to FR.
Smart idea.....when you check the balances left, write down the last 4 numbers of the acct # and write down the amount left. Makes it SO much easier to process to the FReepathon.
I KNOW there are a lot of you with those gifts cards laying around collecting dust because of the small balances left.
THEY ADD UP! If only 10 FReepers had a collection of $30 seperate gift cards, that's an additional $300 bucks!
So go ahead, look in your drawers, wallets, closets, where ever you keep those cards. Look up the balance and donate them to FR!
Get looking and collecting!!! Remember, the minimum is $3.00.
Let's hop to it! =)
Im going on a hunt too great idea
How can the balance of a gift card, which is to be used at a certain merchant and not usually refundable in cash, be turned into a cash donation to Free Republic? I don’t know how it’s done.
If everyone just gave up a couple of Big Macs a month they could chip in with 120 bucks a year.
Visa, Mastercard, Amex gift cards. Store cards won’t work.
Sorry for not stating that. Thought it would be common knowledge.
If we could do it, I have $75 bucks just sitting here, unused!
Thanks!!! I am now searching my wallet to see if I have anymore I stored away!
If you want to bust the bank on a Freepathon, offer everyone who donates $25.00 or more a chance to win in a drawing for a brand new AR15 with 5 - 30 round magazines.
Keep it open until the end of Q1 and you might not have to have another Freepathon until Q4 of this year.
Mini FReepathon Idea!
Thank you so much, NGZ! You’re the very best!
I recognized your incoming the second Jim posted it from NY!
AND, your beloved NY in in 3rd Place!
Heads up thinking.
Good on you.
If I had it to give, I would.
But if you do........ =)
If I am correct there is no background checks or even age limits to raffle off anything that is muzzle loading.
Woo hoo!! Thank you very much, NoGrayZone!!
What a great idea!
I think I might have a gift card from the Olive Garden.
Will that work?
Fudge! The only ones I have are Subway and Cracker Barrel. But I will remember this, cause it’s a great idea. Thanks!
I knew I had an Amex gift card, but could not find it!!
Damn cats thinks anything on top of any surface is a toy!!
Here comes another $50, woohooo!!
BTW.... I really need to move my couch a little more when I clean, ewwww!
Just thought I’d throw that in, lol.
Thank you for pinging your list Lucy!!! (((hug)))
Well, I wouldn’t say my beloved NY, lol. I do believe we now have the strictest anti-second amendment laws in the country.
Was dying to leave, even making plans to escape to SC. Then a part of me wants to stay and fight these b@stards.
Just to shove it in their face. Beside, I believe that “first shot” we all talk about will start here in NY.
I want to be apart of that...even if I die doing so.
