Jungle Deals Blog Updates: Focussing on Mobile!

screen-shot-2017-01-07-at-9-55-44-pm

You may not know it from my lack of updates today, but I spent the day in front of the computer – mostly improving the mobile design!ย Looks much better right?ย I was starting to really hate the purple. ๐Ÿ™‚

Because I spend all day on my laptop and only really see the site through the desktop design I haven’t really been that attentive to mobile users and that stops now!

Jungle Deals Blog Updates: Focussing on Mobile!

About 70% of you viewing this site are actually doing it through a mobile device – it is kind of where the internet is going and from now on I will be working to give a really beautiful mobile experience by using the site on mobile when I am not writing posts. ๐Ÿ˜‰

There are a few things I still need to tweak and a lot I want to improve…

  • The load time of the site – it’s around 5 seconds because all the prices from Amazon are actually pulled from the API. It really sucks to have to wait so long for the page to load and trust me no one hates this more than me since I’m looking at my site all day.
  • Fonts and font sizes – I really want to find a more readable font.
  • Make the tools on this site easier to use for mobile users.
  • Improve the usability for sharing content to social networks.
  • Load comments on all posts
  • Remove the RSS Feed…

Yes, I will be removing the RSS Feed. ๐Ÿ™ For those of you following on sites like bloglovin’, feedly, newsblur etc this feed will be removed soon. This is because I am just really tired of seeing the full html of my posts show up on other websites without any content attribution and with affiliate links changed. This is an unfortunate problem and no other way around it.

This means that I will also be changing the mailing list service I use since the current one uses RSS feeds to get the post content to an email to be sent to you guys. I will update more closer to the time.

But for now just know that I am committed to giving you guys a great experience – if I wasn’t there would be ads on the site. ๐Ÿ˜‰

How I got 5% Back on Every Amazon Purchase Last Month!

How to 5% Credit Back on All Amazon Purchases!

Yeah the answer is a credit card, but hear me out!

If you shop on Amazon a lot, and pay all your credit cards back on time it’s actually a good deal. Imagine if there was an offer to getย 5% off all your Amazon purchases – you’d do it right?ย Well, this is it. ๐Ÿ™‚

I decided to write this post because I logged into the Amazon Store Card portal and saw this.

How to 5% Credit Back on All Amazon Purchases!

It took me a minute to realize what was going on with my account because I thought I paid everything off and didn’t at all think I over paid at all. (The blurred part is my account limit which is personal.)

My Amazon Store Card is paid off fully but I earned $75.15 from my purchases in December soย my accountย has a negative balance of $75.15 meaning the next $75.15 I spend on my store card is FREE!

I Just Made $32.08 From Amazon Anytime Gift Cards!

If you do the math is means I spent around $1500 in December, which sounds like a lot butย around $700 of that is gift cards that I can redeem back to my own account at any time with $2 Amazon Credit per $10 gift card bought (deal mentioned here but no longer available).

Amazon Prime Day: 20% Off Select Gift Card Lightning Deals!

There wereย also lots of lightning gift card deals where gift cards to places I already shop throughout the year were on sale for 20% off so that was 5% off on top of those deals.

prime fresh now

I also do all my grocery shopping through Amazon Fresh, and shop a lot in the sale section so I got an extra 5% back on all of my groceries. ๐Ÿ™‚

Christmas presents

And gosh, don’t forget all the Christmas presents I bought last month! My family were really happy with what I got them and my sister loved all the Barbies which were super cheap with all the deals! ๐Ÿ™‚

How to 5% Credit Back on All Amazon Purchases!

So now on top of saving on groceries, the FREE $2 per $10 credit from Amazon anytime gift cards, coupons savings, subscribe & save savings, Amazon Sample Box credit, other promotional credit and even no-rush shipping credit – I got 5% back on every dollar I spent!

Wow.

Iย plan to just let the credit chill in my account and use it towards the next purchases of household supplies like toilet paper, trash bags etc because if I put it towards the things I truly need to live it’s the best deal possible. ๐Ÿ˜€

Though I have to admit, I did almost put it towards a new kate spade new york bag… ๐Ÿ˜‰

Thinking about an Amazon Store card? Check it out here and read the fine print to make sure it’s right for you. ๐Ÿ™‚ It’s only a great deal if you’re financially responsible enough to pay it off on time.

Thank You for Another Great Year!

Thank You for Another Great Year!

Thank you guys for another GREAT year! When I started this blog back in 2013, I had no idea it would beย considered to be the authority on deals at Amazon. Every year I am so thankful for many of you guys who visit this site first thing in the morning and take advantage of all the amazing bargains.

The above photo is a screenshot from the stats showing that this site doubles in traffic every year and I couldn’t be happier to work on something you guys enjoy so much. ๐Ÿ™‚

Though back in August Amazon decided to cut the average commission on products sold through this site from 8% – 1% I have decided to keep blogging every day. Finding bargains and deals every day is something I really enjoy doing, even if I won’t be able to turn it into a full time job.

Stay tuned, there are some great projects in the works. ๐Ÿ™‚

*HOT HOT HOT* I Just Made $32.08 From Amazon Anytime Gift Cards!

I Just Made $32.08 From Amazon Anytime Gift Cards!

As I told you guys earlier, Amazon is running a promotion where you can get $2 back every time you load an Amazon Anytime gift card through 12/31! Reading the terms an conditions, it doesn’t specify how many times you can use this promotion because it’s unlimited! ๐Ÿ™‚

Even sweeter, you can redeem the gift cards back to your own account so you are essentially pocketing the $2. ๐Ÿ˜‰

I Just Made $32.08 From Amazon Anytime Gift Cards!

As reader Elizabeth mentioned in the comments: The $2 promotional credit you get from this offer is good for use on products shipped and sold by Amazon including subscribe & save items and doesn’t expire until march 31st 2017! ๐Ÿ™‚

Here’s how this deal works:

Amazon Premium Greeting Cards with Anytime Gift Cards, Pack of 3 (Merry Christmas Design)

  1. Buy a 3 pack of Amazon Anytime gift cards for $1.99
  2. Go to amazon.com/anytimecards, input the gift card information and load the gift card with at least $10 to get $2 back!
  3. Go to amazon.com/redeem to redeem the gift card amount back to your account!

That’s a total of $6 credit from a $1.99 purchase meaning it’s a money maker of $4.01 per pack!ย Repeat for how many gift cards you have! ๐Ÿ™‚

I Just Made $32.08 From Amazon Anytime Gift Cards!

I had 24 gift cards or 8 packs of 3 happy birthday Amazon Anytime gift cards. So at a profit of $4.01 per pack I just made $32.08 profit. ๐Ÿ™‚

I Just Made $32.08 From Amazon Anytime Gift Cards!

I redeemed them all while I was watching TV so it didn’t even feel like work!

Discount check

The $2 is applied at checkout to Amazon.com orders – one credit will be applied per order.

12 Reasons to Give Gift Cards this Christmas

12 Reasons to Give Gift Cards this Christmas

Gift cards get such a bad rep. People often view them as the lazy gift or the gift that you give to someone who you don’t know what to get them. I think gift cards are amazing and I always give them out for holiday gifts.

  1. The End of Year Sales! December 26th that $100 set of headphones or the $100 toy set will be $60. So the money you give someone in gift card form will end up going a lot further than you even imagined.
    The End of Year Sales
  2. It’s like an extra gift! Christmas isn’t over after all the gifts have been unwrapped. You would still have an extra gift card to buy whatever you like! Kids go wild after unwrapping a gift card because they unwrapped something adults usually get and they have 100% say in what they want.
  3. For the kid who didn’t get everything they wanted… Gift cards allow someone to get something they were really hoping for after they didn’t get it. Maybe your mind slipped up and Santa forgot something they really wanted. Gift card to the rescue!
  4. Expansion packs? My little brothers will be getting LEGO Dimensions packs for Christmas, but after they realize you can do so much more with the expansion packs that gift card will have lots of use!12 Reasons to Give Gift Cards this Christmas
  5. Balance out the gifts. My much younger brother got a few more gifts than his older brother so I bought the older brother larger gift card to balance out the disparity. ๐Ÿ™‚ I can’t be accused of favoritism.
  6. No returns or refunds. No one returns a gift card – unless it isn’t to Amazon. ๐Ÿ˜‰ When I get a gift I don’t like, like a shirt with a gift receipt, what you really bought me was an errand.
    Gift Card
  7. Teach kids to budget! The only way kids learn the true value of a dollar is by getting to budget the amount of money they have.
  8. Gift cards can be practical. You never know how much someone is struggling. If you give a $100 gift card you may expect a college student to buy a brand new designer bag, but they may actually more wisely spend it on food and personal care products. The things they really need. If you know someone is struggling, but don’t want to give an awkward gift of groceries, a gift card will help them retain dignity.
  9. You can buy gifts from home! It’s so tough to find the time to go to the mall, find parking and shop around but everything is on Amazon and you can get it delivered right to your door! Give me 10 mins at work and I can do my weekly grocery shopping on Amazon Prime Now for FREE delivery!
  10. The designs are really fun. Check out this cute little Amazon box gift card. ๐Ÿ™‚Amazon box gift card
  11. Send on-time! You can set up gift cards to email out on Christmas!Gift Card
  12. Nobody hates gift cards. ๐Ÿ™‚
