How to Shop Free or Discounted & A Free $10 Gift Card for You!


Who is ready to do their Christmas shopping?

I am starting to get a little bit done!  I have had many questions or requests in the past from various people for me to share some of the ways in which I make my budget stretch and find the deals that I find (people who know me know I am a good shopper).  I have already shared one article on this topic of how I get things free or really discounted and am back to share more today.  I promised I would be sharing as much as possible between now and Christmas- as I know so many people are on tighter budgets these days.  If you missed the first post that talks about the free ring I got from Stauer please click HERE to see that.  Also- you may want to check out another post I did about how you can make money back when you shop online ( I just got about $40 in the mail from that very thing this week) because if you are already planning on holiday shopping online, why not get money back in the process?  It’s free and easy, and to learn how to do that click HERE.



Today I want to talk about a place my best friend Becky introduced me to called No More Rack.  I was able to get some AMAZING deals with this company and have already knocked out 1 free birthday present and 1 very discounted Christmas gift in the process.  They have a huge variety of things, and it’s not really like any website I know of.  It’s not a store.  It’s like this place where you will find merchandise from many different stores and name brands , but at highly discounted ( I have seen them up to about 90% off) prices. 

Bonus?  You get a FREE $10 gift card to start with.  (More on that in a minute).


How it works is that they have these deals of the day every day (several items) on the main page and then they have evening events from different stores that last a certain number of days.  They also have something called “insanity deals” that are usually very costly items for an insanely cheap price (they have had Kindles and video game systems in the past for example)…so look for those too.

I personally find the evening events to have the best finds and have done all of my buying from those.


For some reason I have a harder time finding gifts to buy men, so I was glad that one event they had was for this high end looking stainless steel Men’s jewelery.  I had a $10 gift card to redeem so I was able to get the first gift completely free.  I found a really cool cross necklace that was on sale for $10 (regular price is $30) from a brand called Blackjack.  Since I can’t take a photo of this because Matt is wearing it at present, I will provide a link to the website so you can see the quality.  Just click HERE.  That was one of Matt’s birthday presents back in August.  (He doesn’t read my blog, so no worries of me spilling my “secrets”).



The second thing I got for Matt I have saved for a Christmas gift.  It is this really nice, heavy and chunky (but classy) Men’s ID bracelet.  I was super stoked when I got it in the mail, because this stuff is such nice quality.  You sometimes wonder when you get things free or really discounted what it will be like, but the Blackjack website has really nice things and it comes gift boxed nicely in a sleek black box.  The ID bracelet I got him costs $70 at the blackjack site, but I got it on No More Rack for just $19!  $19 for 2 really nice, substantial feeling pieces of Men’s jewelry is pretty cool in my book.  I am not sure what I am going to engrave on his bracelet, but am thinking of his initials on one side, and mine on the underneath side.  Something sweet that he will hopefully like.


I also got a bluetooth ear piece for my cell phone for an extremely low price, and have just seen another gift (which I can’t mention) that I will be snagging for someone else.  The only downside I want to mention about No More Rack, is that the shipping will be slower than some stores.  You would want to shop at least 2 weeks in advance for any special date to make sure you have it on time.  It’s worth it though because shipping is always either $2 flat rate or free. (When you sign up you will get emails of the daily deals/events plus any time they have free shipping or any other special deals they alert you).


So how do you get a FREE $10 gift card for yourself?  You have to sign up through a friend’s link to get one.  It’s super easy and free though, so no worries.  HERE is my link to get your gift card!


If you click on that, you will get a free $10 gift card to start shopping with.  The link should just take you to the site, where you will sign up easily with email .  Then they email you the gift card code.  You just will enter the code when you go to check out and then you will get the $10 off.  The best part is that because they have such great deals, you will be able to find something for $10 or less…so you should be able to get at least 1 item totally free 🙂  It’s kind of fun to hunt and see what you can get!


Some of the really popular items sell out fast, so be aware of that too.  I have seen everything from luxury sheets and hotel or spa quality bathrobes and towels, to designer perfume and makeup (like MAC cosmetics for example), to electronics, Swarovski Crystal stuff, toys for kids, etc. on the site. You name it, they have probably have had it ,or something like it, at some point.  They may do the Blackjack jewelry thing again as an evening event.  I have seen it 3 times so far, so you never know.



How are you all doing with your Christmas shopping?  Do you shop online or in stores? 


Hope you have fun getting these freebies and discounts!  There is more to come from me on this topic from now until Christmas… ~ Rebekah




Just so you know, I am not compensated or urged in anyway to write reviews for this stuff.  I am just sharing tips people asked for and helping you all benefit like I do.  Why not share the love, right? 🙂 The only way I would potentially get compensated is that if enough people clicked through the link to get their free gift card, I may be able to get a free gift (you have to have like 20 people or more).  It’s a good note to anyone reading this who knows a lot of people and wants to give free gift cards to them.  You can get some pretty cool stuff if you know lots of people to share with.

    I am SO not ready to do Christmas shopping this year! I’ve been trying for years to get my family to lessen the amount of gifts that we buy for each other, and instead buy for a family in need. While they are all about buying for a family in need, they STILL want to buy for each other, too. I just can’t afford to do both anymore. I feel like we all pretty much buy everything that we want already or have everything we’ve ever needed, so the point in buying gifts has sort of diminished some. Maybe this year is the year that they’ll listen!

    In the book that I am reading right now, the author mentions that she and her husband wrote letters to their family and asked them to donate their time, money or gifts to someone else in need, then write about it or take photos and include it in a card to let them know what they did instead of purchasing gifts. I thought that was a wonderful idea!

    The sites you listed for purhcasing gifts look like they have some great deals! Thanks for sharing 🙂

      I myself have to cut back this year. However, I have plenty of plans up my sleeve and I actually enjoy the “hunt” for good deals 🙂 Every year in my family (for our family Christmas with Mom, Dad, and brother) we do buy each other gifts but then we also make each other at least one thing. It’s become a tradition for my brother and I to do a different Christmas project each year for our parents. I will have to write about things we have done later. I am already planning the gifts I will be making for this year. Have you ever made the gifts instead of buying them? That helps with budget and also these Freebies or discounts I will be sharing help too! I also feel like making stuff that comes from the heart is part of the spirit of the season. We have a very small family, so at this point it isn’t too hard to buy for people. I know people with big families often will like draw one name to buy for. All of us also do charity stuff. As a family we pick at least one family off the Salvation Army “Angel Tree” and buy them the stuff on their list. Then as an individual I just give to whomever I hear about that needs it. I have done various things over the years just depending on what God brings in my path. Half the fun of Christmas for me is in the giving. I like to see people open their gifts more than I like to open my own 🙂

    I’m glad you are sharing some of your secrets to saving money and getting great deals and free stuff online. There are a lot of these types of websites out there and I thought I would share some of the ones I use frequently.
    This website ( I just recently used to buy an awesome skillet that has a ceramic cooking surface. I have received the pan and I LOVE it! I cooked scrambled eggs in it and even fried some cheese directly in the skillet. Nothing stuck! I didn’t use any oil or spray either. It is a really nice weight pan. I really love everything about this pan. And I got it at a great price! Here is my link to the website: (you may have to copy and paste it)

    I have also used Howchow, which is
    And also OneKingsLane. Here is my link to it: ) I have purchased several items from this last website and I have always liked what I bought. They often have some really beautiful and wonderfully scented candles. And when they ship they wrap all their items to always look like you are getting a gift! Have fun shopping!

    • Rebekah (We Live Inspired) says:

      I have seen some of your One Kings Lane stuff and it is really nice. Us girls always have fun shopping, don’t we? 🙂

    Wow! some really great tips here! Might have to try them out for a few Christmas pressies perhaps. I have a few already sorted and the rest are still a mystery to me 😉

    I’ve just started this week. I have all the books ordered for the grandchildren. I do most of my shopping online. So easy, I can compare prices and I don’t have to cart them home myself. I’ll check out all your fun links.


    • Rebekah (We Live Inspired) says:

      Hi Pamela, thank you for visiting. I get books for gifts every year. I actually get some free, so that will be another post I will share in the future (How I get free books). Isn’t online shopping the best? It makes it so easy. Of all the links to check out, I would really suggest the rebates one because if you aren’t already using rebate places when you shop online…you may want to do that! I get free money every year. They will mail you checks or put the money in paypal so that you can shop for more things you need 🙂 Here is the direct link to the post about using rebates online. It only takes a second to do it too, so no extra time out of your day (which is what I like).
