Well, it is Back To School Shopping Season and I don’t know about you but a $50 Visa Gift Card sure would come in handy!  Between the school supplies, new shoes and clothes it really ads up!  Here are some Back to School Shopping Tips from Visa to help you stretch your money even further.

  • Set a budget and stick to it. One way to do this is to make a list in advance for what each child will need. Additionally, parents can purchase a Visa gift card for the exact amount they want to spend. For kids who are old enough to shop on their own, having a Visa gift card with a set limit can help teach them an important lesson of staying within your financial means.
  • Research money-saving perks and benefits. Take the time to do some research in advance of hitting the stores as there are many online resources for finding great deals and saving on back-to-school needs. For example, shoppers can visit Visa.com and get access to a number of retailer offers including discounts from OldNavy.com and Target.com. Visit www.visa.com/discounts for more information.
  • Track spending and know where you stand. When back-to-school shoppers pay with Visa, they can easily keep track of purchases, monitor card balances, and check account histories online at their bank’s website. This helps families understand where the money goes, set and monitor financial goals and better prepare to spend smarter in the future.
  •  Create an ongoing family finance dialogue. Use this budgeting opportunity to start a meaningful dialogue with your family about personal finance management. These tangible opportunities can help teach the whole family about financial responsibility.

We have (1) $50 Visa Gift Card to giveaway to (1) lucky Stockpiling Moms reader.  This giveaway ends on 8/27/12 at 9 am EST.  It will be open to US residents ages 18+.
