Has Christmas Shopping gotten more stressful the older we get or is it just me?? Due to working full-time, I’m not able to leisurely stroll through Target on a Monday morning after dropping the kids off at mother’s day out, dang it. Darn bills that need to be paid :). But what I do not love is any given Saturday in December at any retail establishment-unless it’s past 9:00 pm. Things seem calmer then.
With that being said, my christmas shopping this year has been about 95% online, and that may even be shorting the world-wide web a bit. After joining a few deal groups on Facebook, signing up for Amazon Prime, and re-introducing myself to my new best friend, I’m almost done with shopping! Woo hoo!
So here is my secret for making money while Christmas shopping…. Wait for it…….
What is Ebates?
Either you’ve heard of it, you either use it religiously or roll your eyes when you see another blogger or friend raving about it, OR you may have never heard of it and I’m about to introduce you to your new online shopping BFF as well!
Do you like money?
Do you shop online?
Then, why wouldn’t you take 2 minutes, sign up for a website, download an app, and then go about with your normal online shopping?
That’s basically it.
Here’s a secret…. I’ve had ebates for AWHILE. And I didn’t use it. Either I would forget about it, or my online shopping was so sporadic that I didn’t think about it.
But at a friend’s suggestion, I downloaded the app again and started doing my shopping through it. Guess what? Three days after, I had $49 in my account. Not kidding.
Here’s the breakdown of how I made $49 in 4 days-
Update 12/14: I’ve now made $111! Boom!
I purchased items from 3 different retailers in a weekend period. One of the items was a big purchase (a Santa gift) from Toys R Us that I earned ~$23 from alone, with two small purchases at Jane.com and Groupon.com. (LOVE both of those sites!!)
The next thing I did was copy and paste my referral link to my personal Facebook page so my friends could sign up. One friend signed up for ebates, and made a purchase over $25, which earned me $25, just for her to sign up!! Ya’ll- it’s really that easy.
It’s basically just money back for what you already would be buying. Christmas is the perfect time to sign up because there are some awesome cash back deals going on. Over 500 stores have double their money back right now! I honestly sound like I work for the company, but I was so stoked when I logged in and saw my balance that I couldn’t contain myself!
Whatcha waiting for? Go here and sign up. Merry Christmas to you!
