Earn Cash for Shopping Online!

7 Oct

Do you shop online during the holidays? With the holly, jolly seasonal shopping rush fast approaching, it’s an increasingly smarter way to beat the crowds and save big bucks on everything you need to make things merry & bright.

But did you know that you can actually EARN money for making everyday purchases online? Through sites like eBates and ShopAtHome, you can build up cash-back rewards, and actually receive checks, mailed right to your home, once you’ve accrued a certain amount. As a bonus, these sites often offer special deals, discounts and incentives, like gift cards & prizes. That’s right – shop at home, save money, get rebates checks sent right to your door. It’s that simple!

Check out the two most popular rebate sites here, then let me know in the comment section if you’ve found any other sites you like to use for online shopping rewards!

Happy earning!


Online Shopping – How to Save Money & Make Money Doing It!

7 May

Most people I know do at least a little online shopping – especially around certain holidays, or when stores are having great blow-out sales. Some of these people don’t know that there are online coupon codes you can redeem just like a paper coupon when shopping online. This can make sales even sweeter.

My favorite is RetailMeNot.com – an easy-to-use online database of current coupon codes, sales, specials and rewards. It is updated constantly, and uses customer feedback to rate each code. I always check for these codes before purchases items from my favorite online stores. 

So that’s how you can SAVE money shopping online- but did you know you can actually MAKE money shopping online? Just like items in stores often have rebate or cash-back reward offers, so do online stores. These can be found on rebate sites like eBates.com or ShopAtHome.com. Both offer a small percentage – different from store to store and from time to time, varying with special promotions run by the stores or the site throughout the year – of cash back on your online purchases. Once your total earned reaches a certain amount, you receive a check or deposit for your cash back earned. Making money back on the online purchases you were going to make anyway? Not a bad deal, if you ask me!

Remember to check these sites BEFORE you shop online to get the most for your money!
