If you shop online, there are some great, easy ways to save.
My favorite cash back site is Ebates. Just log onto the Ebates site, find the participating store you are shopping at, and click the Ebates link to get to the site. Then shop as normal and you will automatically get up to 25% back on your purchase, though most stores average about 5% cash back. They even have some promotions where you can get double cash back. Sign up through the link below and get $5 automatically as a signup bonus! Ebates works with a long list of well known companies so you will likely find the store you are looking for. Additionally, they also include promotion codes which you can you at online stores in addition to getting cash back through Ebates. Your cash back is based on the price you pay after the promotion code.
I personally have been paid by Ebates for my online shopping and they send you a check every three months automatically. I don’t shop online too much so the last check I got was $3.51 but that was from one purchase and every little bit helps! With that first purchase Ebates also sent me a $10 gift card to Target as my signup bonus since that was the promotion they were running at the time. So it definitely works!
Another site for discounts when shopping online is Retail Me Not. They are a free site where you can find promotion codes for free shipping, free gifts with purchase, and discounts when shopping at a large list of retailers. The codes are generally good and have rankings for which work the best. The best part about promotion codes is that they can be used in conjunction with cash back programs such as Ebates or points for shopping programs such as MyPoints and Memolink. See my review of these points programs here.
