How would you like to get $ back on your Christmas shopping?


If you haven’t and you plan on doing any online shopping or catching the cyber Monday deals next week, you need to sign up for ebates.   Want to get money back for your shopping? Or think of it as getting paid to shop.  Joining ebates is FREE.  How it works:

  1. Join ebates HERE.
  2. Anytime you do online shopping, check and see if the store you are buying from participates in the ebates process.  The stores usually participate by giving you a percentage back on your purchase.  So check out Bass Pro Shops, they are offering 4.5% cash back on your purchase.  Even Groupon participates in ebates to make your deals even sweeter!
  3. Make sure to click on the store through your ebates page to ensure you get credited for your purchase.
  4. Get a “Big Fat Check” as ebates calls it or a deposit into your PayPal account. 

So far since I joined last year I’ve received $127.33 back through ebates.  We did purchase a computer online so that’s the bigger chunk of change that we got back.  So head HERE and sign up today!

Since this wasn’t that exciting of an ad I had to really stretch to get $50 worth of items to get 2 gas card deals!  I don’t think I did too bad to get $100 worth of gas for $80 and spend $9.05 on the grocery part and that includes vitamins that I’ll actually use instead of grabbing the moneymaker Sundown vitamins!  If you use Children’s Advil or adult regular Advil, stock up while it has store and manufacturer coupons…this is the stock up price for me!

This was a decent week at Bi-Lo if you had the coupons.  I also got a raincheck for the remainder of the yogurts since all they had was strawberry Yoplait.
