Christmas Savings Tips

Saving is not always easy especially during Christmas and the holiday season. Australia is set to spend $25 billion on Christmas this year alone. Remunerator has decided to step in.

Here are our top 5 tips for saving this Christmas:

  1. Set a spending limit

Use apps like ASIC’s MoneySmart’s TrackMySPEND to monitor your holiday spending so can set budgets and don’t blow the bank.

  1. Get creative with Christmas decorations

Tis’ the season to be creative. See what you can find around the house and transform your home into Santa’s workshop. Think colour, shapes and glitter!

  1. Personalise your Christmas cards and greetings

Instead of spending money on greeting cards that might end up being thrown away, make your own. Take a great family photo and print up your own cards with a holiday message. Or don’t send a card at all and write a family letter to send to close relatives and friends instead of a card.

  1. Discounts, discounts, discounts!

The time to save is now. End of year discounts are where it’s at when brands clear out old stock. Don’t bother paying full price when you can buy clearance stock. If buying online, make sure you apply your discount codes!

  1. Remunerator Rewards

We’ve got you – introducing Remunerator Rewards.

Join our discount program for more than 20,000 offers on shopping, groceries, travel and accommodations, events, cinema on all major brands and much more.

Saving for your next holiday won’t be as stressful with travel discounts. Not to mention the savings you’ll have made on your daily spending. Treat yourself to some self-care after the stressors of work with discounts on spas, massages and beauty treatments and products.

So, what are you waiting for? Start your Christmas savings now.
