We’ve all seen this meme, right? I’ve got as 3 year old and an almost 2 year old. Sometimes they are perfect in stores, sometimes they aren’t…
Working around 4 kids’ schedules is tricky. From school drop off to nap times, school pick up and on to after school activities and homework; I don’t have a lot of time to get to stores to shop. I’ve got an hour at most each morning that I can spend in a store, and that’s usually spent getting groceries once a week, and frankly that’s all the time I want to spend in stores with my kids.
Online shopping has saved me so much time over the years! Now, I do nearly all my shopping this way. It’s easy to compare deals to save the most on an item. Plus I hate crowds, so heading into busy stores at Christmas is just a nightmare for me. And for the last year, I’ve found a way to keep even more money in the bank account during this expensive time of year.
I’m sure you’ve heard of Ebates by now. So many people spoke so highly of it, and I kind of regret that I didn’t join sooner. I finally signed up last fall as I was starting my Christmas shopping. To date, I’ve made nearly $100. Now that might not seem like a lot, but that’s free money. I didn’t buy anything extra, I only did shopping that I would have done anyways! The cash back amounts vary from store to store, ranging in 1% up to 10%. I love to watch for bonus and double cash days too. Combine that with a sale at your fav store, and you will really see a difference in your bank account or on your credit card statement! Most major stores have deals, and you can even install a feature to your browser to inform you when a site uses Ebates, and the cash back amounts even show up on google searches! It doesn’t get any easier than that!
So, if you do your shopping online, even just a little bit, it’s worth checking out! It’s free to sign up, they do the work for you finding deals and cash back offers! There are more than 750 participating stores that ship to Canada, and even more in the US!
