Everyone knows about couponing and how you can save so much on your everyday shopping with groceries or household items. Well, I personally, rarely use coupons. First, most of the coupons for food are are unhealthy or canned items, and we really try to avoid those foods(except we do buy beets in a jar because my kids for some crazy reason, go bananas over beets). Second, couponing takes a lot of time, and for a stay at home mom of 3 little ones, I have few moments to actually sit down all day, let alone look for coupons! So, I wanted to share an insanely, easy way that I save/earn money by our online purchases. Again its soooooo much easier for me to shop online than it is to drag 3 little ones to the store.
I discovered ebates.com 6 years ago, and now I have gotten into the habit of literally going to their site every time I need to make an online purchase, plus mentioning this to all of my friends and family. You simply create an account and start shopping! Click on the site you need to shop at from ebates and the site directs you to that specific site, and after you checkout you may earn 3%-20% cash back on your item. Then you will receive a check in the mail with your cash back total. You can always go on their site to check your balance and know exactly when you will be receiving the check. To date, I have earned almost $200 cash back!!! Who knew you could get paid to shop online. They even have in store cash back specials as well as double cash back stores. They usually always do higher cash back rewards around the holidays, so be sure to especially shop through them then. I shopped online almost all of black Friday and received cash back on every single item. If you have a large household item such as a refrigerator, washer and dryer, or dishwasher, earning 10% back on your purchase can really add up.
This is a no-brainer, no easier way to earn money through your everyday purchases. Plus if you are an amazon prime member like myself, you can get free 2 day shipping plus cash back, simply by going through ebates.com. Easy peasy!!! You can sign up for ebates, or you can also click on the ebates banner in this post and you can begin earning easy money.
