Extra Cash for the Extra Things of Life

Great Sunglasses

How often have families bypassed the extra choices they would like to make because there wasn't enough money in the budget?  It happens, and that's life.  But, there are choices we can make that might change what happens next.  When the businesses in any community embrace and promote the Lextra rewards program, everyone wins.  Local businesses get more traffic, sell more goods, and consumer earn Lextra points that feel like extra money at the end of every month.

We all know the uncomfortable decisions that we'd like to avoid.  I was reminded of this recently as I have had my eye on some very cool sunglasses that were "just too pricey."  Every time I saw them in the store or on someone else, I dismissed the purchase as frivolous.  But, hey ... wouldn't it be nice to have these ultra-cool sunglasses on a bright, sunny day?

As I collected reward points, I discovered that there was a store with those sunglasses that accepted my points.  Reward points are like finding $50 cash in the pocket of a pair of pants you seldom wear.  Using reward points to purchase the sunglasses would have no negative impact on my bill paying requirements.  So, I bought them!

Now, when I get compliments on my ultra-cool sunglasses, I do not hesitate to tell the story of how I bought them.  I always get that surprised and envious look as they realize that something like great sunglasses can be bought in part or in whole with reward points. 

As a consumer, I wish that more stores appreciated by business with Lextra points.  We all want to support local businesses; but this is a very competitive world, and my buying decisions have consequences to the quality of my life.  So, to all the stores that want me to "Buy Local", I suggest you take a serious look at what Lextra can do for your store, our community, and my patronage.
