I’ve got some great transactions mapped out for you this week! If you’re a newbie starting out, you can spend just $5.70 out of pocket for about $50 in merchandise (based on sale prices). If you’re returning with your $5 ECBs from last week, you can get the same amount for less than $1 OOP. Not only that, but you’ll end up with $11.99 in ECBs, so newbie or not, you’ll be EARNING money on your purchases!
Are you excited? I know I am!
