I already posted about how Blue Cross/Blue Shield gives me points for exercising that I can turn in to gift cards for places like Target, Gap, Best Buy, Amazon. I turned in my first $25 gift card for a Target gift card and used that to buy some exciting stuff: A case of Rockstar, laundry detergent, zip lock bags (I know, you can stop your drooling over my sexy purchases). 😉
Today I got an email from Blue Cross/Blue Shield alerting me to some webinars that Blue Cross/Blue Shield does for its members. They are free to Blue Cross/Blue Shield members AND I get 25,000 points for partcipiating in them. Remember that each 1,000 = $1 in gift cards, so attending these babies nets me a beautiful $25 just for spending 1 hour once a week learning about nutrition (maybe I’ll pick up a thing or two to tell my Nutrition students) and/or living a stress free life. I’ve signed up for the Nutri-Wise webinar because I have no classes during that time. I probably need the Stress Resilient Life one more, but it is being offered at the same time I’m teaching Chemistry. Bummer for me!
I can participate in the webinars in my office quite easily, so I’m pretty excited about this. I love learning. I love learning for free. And I love learning and GETTING PAID to learn. Sounds good to me!
