Life Hacks. We all have em’, little tricks or gimmicks we have to get a ‘one-up’ on life, and seeing as how we’re all friends here, I think it’s time we share.
What ways do you get a leg up on life? Do you have a rewards program that gives you mad cash back? Some secret coupon scam that yields you free frequent flier miles? Are you a part of a pyramid scheme where you’re on the tippy top / big wide bottom? Do Share!
I have one that I really like, and it’s kind of stupid. I use Bing Rewards like it talked about my mother.Essentially Bing is paying me to use their search engine. Not a lot, but if you’re going to be googling something, might as well run it through Bing first, earn a few points, and in a couple of months you’ll be able to get a gift card or a red box rental or whatever. I figure if someone wants to buy my search, they can have it. Worse case scenario you bounce back to Google for proper results. Yes, that is my referral link above.
Otherwise, switching to E-cigerettes has saved me a fuck ton of money, and I can smoke indoors / sleep at night without coughing, which is boss as all hell. I’ve also found that once you get over the set-up gobbly-gook, Net10 wireless is a great no-contract phone provider if you consider yourself tech savy and able to deal with somewhat incompetent tech support. I pay 50 bucks a month for a gig of data and unlimited everything else, for my crappy iPhone 3Gs.
