I’m a huge online shopper, more for practical, I-have-little-kids reasons than anything. I know the ins and outs of finding deals here and there from being up late with new babies, where online browsing at 2AM gets me through long nights.
So, listen. Forget about the coups. Forget about free shipping over $75.
I can get you cash.
I’ve mentioned this before, but my super great friend Jessy shared eBates with me quite a while ago, and if you are online shopping this Black Friday, you need it.
In fact, it’s just stupid if you don’t sign up.
You’ll get a check in the mail for shopping. Really.
Instead of typing a store name in your browser, go to www.eBates.com first.
Type the name of the store in there.
Shop like normal.
Get a percentage back in the mail in a check.
I’ll really hold your hang and give you examples: You’re finishing eating pie on Thanksgiving, which reminds you that you need new stretchy pants, which reminds you that you’d like to check Lululemon’s site. Instead of typing Lululemon into the browser, go to ebates.com first. THEN type in “L-u-l-u-l-e-m-o-n” and you’ll see that for 48 hours only, you’ll get 10% cash back! Click on the store, they take you to your normal site, and you shop like usual.
$250 later, you feel satisfied knowing that you’re getting a $25 check in the mail soon.
Now, finish that pie, girl. New stretchy pants are on their way.
