Free Whoppers, Fries, Sundaes - Just Shake Your Mobile

Why shouldn't you bother with Hungry Jacks vouchers in Perth? If you were wondering why people seem to be driving through Hungry Jacks without paying recently, there is a mobile app that is available for Apple and Android users which allows you to you "win" either a discount or a giveaway from Hungry Jacks every time you are within 1km of a store. Just shake your phone and the offer will appear. So what can you get from the app?

Free items (no purchase)Free with purchaseDiscounts

Some people are concerned that every time you claim a freebie, it gets posted on Facebook. You can turn off the app's posting rights to facebook or you can restrict their check-ins to be "viewed only by me". You are only able to claim one item per store every 10 hours.

Get up to $100 Cashback from Dell, Vodafone purchases etc

If you have been around the internet for a while, you will know that quite often when you click on an ad, someone gets a bit of money. Sometimes that little bit of money is quite a lot. For example, some advertisers will pay $100 for every new vodafone contract signed up as a result of someone clicking through the ad. No, I've never received such commission but there is a website where I have managed to save quite a lot of money by going to big online companies through that website.

StartHere lets  you get back the commission that the website collects when you click through their website to online suppliers like Dominos, Spreets,, Dell, Cudo etc You can see some of the more famous companies listed below. I've been using that website for about 4 years at least and I've earned $442 from it. They just take the first $10 of your commission that you earn each year. The rest is yours. I got $100 cash back for signing up with Vodafone last time.

Recently they added a Google Chrome extension that alerts you when you go on to a website that Starthere provides a cashback for, so that you can then log through their website to make your purchase and claim a cashback that you may not even know even exists! They are offering gold membership for the next six days so click here to join StartHere.

Map of Complimentary Hotels for AMEX Platinum Reserve

View AMEX Reserve Hotels - Created by in a larger map

I have recently been checking out the complimentary hotels for the American Express Platinum Reserve card and noticed that some of the hotels have changed from the last time I looked at it. The American Express Platinum Reserve Card gives you the option to redeem one night stay at a hotel or a return flight to many places in Australia and Bali if you are in Perth. I've put in a table below the hotels that are available and the type of room that they offer to complimentary redemptions. This is based on the AMEX website but is subject to change at any time so please treat this as a rough guide only. Also check out the map above (or click here) to see the hotels mapped out on a Google Map.
