With all the deals leading up to Black Friday and throughout December, I wanted to remind you that there are ways for you to shop and still benefit our school. Check out the Fundraising Programs page for specifics as it will cost you nothing to donate to the West Portal Elementary School Education Fund when you shop at the listed stores. Free money doesn't get any free-ererer than that!
Keep your eye on this post as I will updated it often (whenever I can) with deals I come across that might be beneficial to you and your child. As many of you likely buy from Amazon, I'd like to remind you to use the Amazon link here (also found on the side bar) to make your purchases. Anything you buy will result in a 2% donation back to West Portal Elementary from Amazon! Also a heads up that we have new shirt designs for our school and those will be on sale soon... with a 100% sales proceeds donation to our school fund. Or, you could just donate directly - no gift wrapping required.
On the subject of Amazon, do you haven an American Express card? Log in your account and activate the deal where you'll get $15 off your statement when you spend $60 at Amazon. Do you have a Chase Rewards card? This quarter's Cash Back is 10% at Amazon. So, here's what I did to pick up that sweet Microsoft Surface 3 128GB that's $100 off right now with a keyboard cover at Amazon. Buy the Surface 3 with Chase Rewards for a savings of $50, buy the keyboard cover with AMEX for a savings of $15 and using the Amazon link from our website you've saved $165 on the purchase and Amazon donates about $11 to the school.
Anyhow, here's some deals worth noting as of 11/25 and any further updates will be further below:
- Microsoft Surface 3 is $100+ off at Best Buy, Costco and Microsoft Store for Black Friday
- Free Movies on Amazon such as Divergent, Paper Planes, The End of The Tour and Jackie & Ryan

Well, there's a bajillion deals out there and I've only cherry picked a few to share with you. Hope you find it useful and do send in a deal you'd like to share to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll post them here. For all those other stores you shop at, I suggest you check out the Fatwallet for more Cash Back options.
