Although there are some huge benefits to shopping on line:
- No lines
- No dressing rooms
- No kids - enough said!
- And did I mention discount codes!!!
It's easy, it's fast, they provide you with discount codes both for % off and free shipping if it's available and best of all, if the store you're shopping at participates with ebates (and almost everything I've used does), you earn a certain % of your purchase as cash back!
Case in point, my new Dyson vacuum. First I searched for Dyson and it brought up all the stores that sell Dyson vacuums and the price range. This did take some narrowing down since I didn't have a particular model in mind. Then I found that Sears had the lowest priced vacuum, so I searched for Sears. Low and behold...4%cash back on my purchase! So I bought my vacuum and then a few weeks later received my quarterly rebate check in the mail. $17 back, just for buying something I was already planning on purchasing!
I frequently check out, and about every other monthy buy one on http://www.target.com/ 's Daily Deals. This time it was some lounge pants 2/$12 with free shipping. Granted I only earned $0.36 cash back, it's still something more than nothing.
I really plan on putting my Ebates account to use when the holidays roll around, since it's a little hard to shop for Christmas gifts while the kids are actually WITH YOU!
So not only am I giving http://www.ebates.com/ 2 big thumbs up, but I'm attaching the link to refer you to their site thru me. Duh, if I can earn a cash bonus for referring you, why not! So here it is...check it out, make a purchase and begin your new life as an online shop-a-holic!
