Some discounts are only available in the store. They are only available in the store, and they are usually limited. A friend of mine told me that in order to slow down the speed of rushing, the store will put the usual store decorations in the wind. in different places.

When buying in a physical store, you should pay attention to the “business hours” and “in-store discount catalog”

Other money-saving tips

Deserve Edu Credit Card

Advantage 1: You can apply without SSN

Advantage 2: 1% cash consumption rebate

As the first card, it’s better to have feedback than no feedback😀

For online shopping, although Deserve Edu credit card only has 1% feedback, but it is used with Rakuten cash back. Rakuten is a Cash Back website. In addition to credit card feedback, you can earn cash back. There will be websites from time to time, and higher Feedback, the highest 10% or higher, will give different percentages according to different websites.

Discover IT Credit Card

Discover IT credit card is suitable for people who have just obtained SSN and have zero credit history. I just came to the United States to apply for the “God Card” in the first entry card, and the cash rebate% is very good.

Advantage 1: 5% quarterly feedback

  • 5% feedback : different types every season
    • 1-March: Supermarket, Walgreens, CVS

    • July-September: Restaurants, PayPal
    • 10 – 12 月:Amazon、Walmart、Target
  • 1% feedback : other types of consumption

Advantage 2: Double cash back in the first year

The cash rewards accumulated in the first year will be matched. I will accumulate all the rewards this year, and I will give back to you at the beginning of the second year.

Example: If in the first year, all accumulated rewards are USD 150, in the second year, at the beginning, Discover it will give me USD 150 again.
