I love online shopping. The benefits are many-there is no sales tax to pay if the seller is outside of my state, I save on gas and time, I can shop in my pajamas and nobody cares, I am able to shop anytime and at my convenience, free shipping is often available, and most sellers offer online discounts with coupon codes. You have probably heard of cash back shopping sites. These sites will pay you back a percentage of your purchase, and as an incentive to sign up they will usually offer a bonus.
Some of the most popular are Mr. Rebates andEBates. To use these sites and get cash back, you register at their site, when shopping you sign in, choose a merchant to shop at, and the shopping site will automatically track your purchases and record them. After shopping, you can go to your account and view the amount of cash back you will receive back. Right now, at Mr. Rebates new account sign ups receive an automatic $7.50 cash back bonus. At EBates, you'll receive a $10 gift card of your choice from Macy's, Office Max, Bloomingdale's, or Marriot. That's all yours for simply opening an account at Mr. Rebates and EBates. You will also receive daily coupon codes, if you sign up for their email newsletter, and a very nice mouse pad as a gift from Mr. Rebates. I have noticed that in my case, Mr. Rebates has a bit higher percentage of cash back on merchants I have shopped with, but I always check both sites and shop through the one with the higher amount of cash back. You can look at both sites and compare. You can also open an account at both Mr. Rebates and EBates, which is exactly what I did. This past week, I earned $12.50 cash back shopping for books for my kids, clothing, and some early holiday gifts. There's no reason not to sign up and earn cash back.
Shop smart and put money back in your pockets!
