✭✭✭✭LEAVE FEEDBACK & EARN TPT CREDITS✭✭✭✭
Are you taking advantage of FREE TpT money? ---> According to TpT, "You get one TpT Credit for every $ you spend on TpT. Thing is, you only get the Credits after you Provide Feedback — both a fair rating and a fair comment — on the items that you purchase. We will round up for you, too! If you provide fair feedback on a $4.75 item, you will earn 5 credits. Every 100 Credits is worth $5 that you can apply towards future TpT purchases, but there is no need to wait until you have 100 to redeem them. 50 credits is worth $2.50, for example."
How do you redeem these credits? ---> "When you check out, you will be given the option of applying your TpT Credits to your purchase, thereby discounting your purchase price accordingly."
