It's about time for another post here, don't you think?
So you have tech lying around that you have already replaced or you want to replace and you want to get some cash for it. I don't blame you! You can sell it to someone you know who is in the market, or maybe you list it on ebay. Then you have to deal with packaging and shipping. Not a huge issue for an iPad, but safety shipping a 27" Mac is another story. Have you heard of Apple's Trade Up program?
My experience with Apple's Trade Up Program
One of my most visited posts every month is How to Get Free Toms Shoes Every Year (or sooner!).
Recently I noticed that Tom’s has made some adjustments to their Passport Rewards Program and I wanted to bring them to your attention.
Free Toms?! How does that sound to you? Sounds great to me!!
My Passport Rewards
The well-known alpargata shoe brand has a program called "My Passport Rewards".
You can redeem your rewards for things like Toms discount codes, desktop backgrounds, donations, or Toms merch including varying limited edition and classic Toms shoes!
Start Earning Stamps
The great news is there are a ton of ways to earn stamps!
Some methods only give you points once, whereas others you can continue to earn on a consistent basis.
Connect your Facebook (25 stamps), Instagram (25 stamps), Twitter (25 stamps) and Foursquare (25 stamps) you will start your account off with 100 stamps. These are rewarded once per lifetime.
When you follow Toms on Instagram and Twitter, you will automatically get 1 stamp per every month that you follow them. (12 stamps/year each x 2 = 24 stamps) Now you're up to 124 stamps!
More Ways to Fill Your Passport
Responding to Tom's marketing in other ways gives you stamps.
How Many Stamps For Free Classics?!
Okay sounds great, but how many stamps do you need for a pair of new classics?
Only 520 for adult classics!
(420 for youth classics)
Easy Scenario For a Free Pair of Toms!!
That gives you easily 565 stamps a year! Way to go, you've earned a free pair of Toms!!!
Of course, if you want it to happen faster, you can vary your methods of stamp accrual. Still, I see this as a nice rewards program for customers that really takes minimal effort. I have folders that I have links saved to on my computer and when I open Safari I open all the tabs at once. This is an easy way to remember to log in every day. Open your browser, click your folder of sites you need to visit, then click "Open in New Tabs". Go through each tab like a "to-do" list. Log into your Toms account and you can cross that off your "to-do" list. If you have a minute, click an article or video for extra stamps. If you see a great new style you love, post it to social media with the hashtag #TOMSPassportRewards for bonus stamps. And if you planned on making a Toms purchase anyways, then just make sure you're logged in when you do it so you can get those extra stamps too!
