2 sites to visit before shopping on line - Ebates & Shop at Home. Now is a great time to sign up for 1 or both before the holiday deals start. Cyber Monday has some amazing deals through these 2 sites.
Both sites offer cashback on your on-line shopping at a huge variety of stores. They also have coupon codes to use for on-line shopping.
Ebates - You can set up an account by clicking on one of the links on my blog. You can use choose $5 in cash or $10 gift card for free. You'll earn this extra if you purchased $25 worth of merchandise (not earn $25 in rewards) in 90 days I think so it doesn't usually take long if you make a lot of purchases on-line. Once you set up your account, you search for whatever store you are going to shop at & then click Shop Now. You just buy like you normally would.
I keep a separate folder in my e-mail for receipts for what I buy through Ebates so I make sure I get my credit. There have been times I have had to follow up them but I think I've always gotten my rewards.
I always try to remember to shop through Ebates so I earn cash back. Once a quarter, you can set up to get a check or deposit. I've been using them for exactly 1 year & have gotten over $150 cashback.
Shop at Home - every similar to Ebates but Shop at Home will often have Wild Deals - that will allow you to get something free after cashback. In the past few months I have gotten free toilet bowl cleaner, hand sanitizer, dry erase markers, a mug from Coldwater Creek, & nail polish from Avon.
A few other sites to check - Retail Me Not & Brad's Deals for on-line & printable coupons.
