Love my title? I'll bet my husband is seeing red. He hates that particular strain of logic. "Honey, I saved SO much money today at the mall!". Wait, who shops at malls anymore? Clearly it's been a LONG time since I've gone on a physical shopping spree :)
That's just it. I rarely shop at brick & mortar shops. There are drawbacks to this and I hold myself (and Amazon) partially responsible for the lack of bookstores within a 30-mile radius of my home. However, I am an online shopper and I'm thankful it exists!
For a country girl, the world of possiblities opens up when shopping online. Outdoor gear, organic clothes and books... I could spend all day browsing those three categories!
Perhaps I'm dreadfully late to the party, but I finally joined Ebates. Every money-saving-website has been talking about Ebates for a long time, but I resisted creating yet ANOTHER site to visit and remember log-in information for. However, since I do almost all of my shopping online, I finally bit the bullet.
Yesterday I realized that I need a rash guard swim top for Heidi (skin, our body's largest organ is particularly fragile duirng the first 2 years. I think these shirts should be mandatory.... have you ever tried to repeatedly cover a squirmy baby in sunblock? Precisely.). I was thrilled with the selection of online stores who belong to Ebates. I shopped at OshKosh and scored some sweet sales while earning 2.5% back. Some stores offer up to (quickly scanning...) 7.5% back, maybe more. Combine that with any online coupons and BAM... you've saved some major dough :)
So, check it out and if you decide to join, please do so through my link (the graphic below) :)
