If you are a fan of Thomas the Train I’ve got some EXCITING news for you!!! You can actually earn rewards when you purchase your Thomas and Friends items!!!
Thomas & Friends™ Journey To Rewards is the only program that rewards you for buying all your little engineer’s favorite Thomas & Friends™ toys, tracks, clothing, DVDs, and more at Walmart. It’s simple: Shop at Walmart, scan your receipt, redeem your points, and earn big rewards when you buy all year-round. If you sign up HERE right now and use the code PennyPinchinMom, you’ll even get 700 bonus points instantly added to your account!
My kids have been fans of Thomas & Friends forever. Of course, now that they are getting older, they are outgrowing him (which makes me so sad), but for some reason, they still love to look at all of those toys anytime we go to the store! As parents, we love to purchase the toys and products our kids love for those birthdays and other events. And yes, we do wait for a sale, as we are all frugal in our shopping. However, what better way to save than to get PAID to shop. (Where was this program when my kids were little???)!!
When you purchase select Thomas and Friends products (as listed here), you will be rewarded with points. Those points can then be redeemed for great rewards — Walmart giftcards! You can claim anywhere from $5 to $25 (depending upon the number of points you earn).
This was such a simple program (and didn’t require a special app on my phone – which I appreciate). I made a purchase today and already have more than 1700 points in my account and am getting ready to cash in to get my first reward!!! This is what you need to do to get your points:
|1. Create an account HERE at Journey to Rewards.
2. Enter the code PennyPinchinMom and get 700 points when signing up (very first line item).
3. Review the products available on the list.
4. Visit Walmart and make your purchase.
5. Snap a photo of your receipt.
6. Upload it to your account.
7. Get your points (within a matter of minutes).
8. Cash them in and get your eGift Card!
I picked up a Thomas and Friends Trackmaster set – and am going to donate it this holiday season to our local toy drive. When I received those points along with my bonus points for signing up, I was able to cash in instantly to receive my eGift Card!!
The one tip I have is to make sure that your photo is very clear. Make sure the barcode is legible and clear when you upload – and that your photo is submitted properly and includes the barcode — and turned the right way! I actually tried twice and realized I had made that mistake myself. The final time, I took a very close photo and made sure the orientation was correct and it FINALLY went through! Whew! (So please, learn from my own mistakes so that you don’t make them yourself)!
The entire process really was very simple and easy to follow. It really is a great way to get those Thomas & Friends Products you want — and actually EARN MONEY for doing so. What are you waiting for? Hurry over and get signed up!!!
