Win a $50 Bank of America Gift Card When You Share Your Time-Saving Tips! (Winner!)

12/26/10 UPDATE:

According to the WINNER is Shelia who left this teriffic tip:

"My tip is to let the kids do alot of the decorating without stressing about perfection! See it through there eyes! I let my niece 7 and my son 11 decorate cupcakes for my daughters baby shower! a perfectionist would have had a stroke! lol... But we thought they were perfect looking through their eyes!!"



Holiday Time-Saving Tips

I've been a Bank of America customer for years. I can easily check my account, schedule payments, and set up alerts all without ever having to leave my cozy warm home.

It is especially nice to NOT have to make a stop at the bank during the crazy holiday season. I've got enough stops to make that one more could throw off my whole day.

Speaking of not making another stop, did you know that Mapquest has a "route planner" where you can plug in your stops and it gives you the fastest route? And another tip: before you head out shopping, try and make sure that what you are off to buy is in stock.

Save Time with Bank of America

In addition to online banking, Bank of America offers...

Mobile Banking - download the secure app to locate ATMs, pay bills, even transfer money!

Deposit Image ATMs - how cool! You just insert your check into the ATM scanner (no envelope or deposit slip) and you get an image on your receipt as proof!

For more tips be sure to follow @BofA_Tips on Twitter.

I shop throughout the entire year, ALWAYS get gift wrapping when stores ask me if I'd like it (why not, it's free and I don't have to do it), and I find EASY but cute holiday treats to give out to neighbors and take to party's.

Like others said - shopping online is a huge timesaver!

I've bought all my presents online this year. It's helped me out tons and I'm already done.

Making sure I don't over schedule myself is the way I feel I make more time for meaningful things during the holidays - like family and friends!

We buy less gifts and not for everyone. That saves time. Plus I try to order everything online.

I do most of my shopping online, and then I pick one store and try to buy lots of things from there to qualify for a percentage off coupon - so for example this year I had a coupon from Anthropologie for 10% a $150 purchase - all the kids' teachers got cute little coinpurses, my SIL and MIL's present came from there, etc. Also, then it's only one shipping charge.

my time saver is that I have to have lists!! these lists are the only way that i can remember all the things that must get done. sometimes i make a list item just so i can cross it off and feel good about DOING something!!

My time saving tip that helps me get through the holidays is to schedule everything, but be careful not to over schedule! It's important to be social and festive but remember that spending time with family and not being stressed matters most!

For the holidays I am always planning ahead we have scheduled days for what we will be doing ! And the best tip I can give is about shopping, it's the most time consuming for me , I try to start shopping the day after Christmas so that I one save money and time when Christmas rolls back around. Another good idea is to have good communication on party events... One year my family and my inlaws had a holiday dinner at the same time so we had to rush both dinners and didn't get to spend quality time with either! And time with family is the most important!

I check out all the grocery deals online before heading out to do my shopping....this saves me a lot of time and prevents impluse buying.

December 17, 2010 | Unregistered CommenterRebecca

Online shopping, buy cookie mixes, prepare dinner casseroles in advance etc,. This will help us in spending lot of quality time with the family during holidays. Thanks for the giveaway.
