Taking a break from the land of DEEP THOUGHTS (commence jokes), I live on a very strict budget. I live gloriously within that budget, but strict it is. My wardrobe: 3 years old OR hand-me-downs from my fashionable Aunt. My kids: spoiled rotten by grandparents. My house: worth every imaginary penny, yet not quite practical (living on the same property as my parents and grandparents!).
So, I look for deals and though I don't coupon, I try to save money whenever possible. Enter EBATES.
For anyone who already shops online, it is WAY worth a few minutes of your time to sign-up. Shop at your favorite stores and earn a percentage back. SO easy! I just got my first check and was relieved that it's a seamless process: Start on Ebates, choose the store, shop, check arrives in the mail. No hoops or tricks to jump through!
Oh, and about that strict budget... sometimes I'm a bit impulsive and sometimes I buy things 'cause I really really want them. So, I kinda sorta really need to earn a referral bonus and CYA (cover your "bum"). I need 9 more referrals (people who join through my link and spend at least $25).
So, IF you shop online anyway, how about it?
Spank you very much :)
