Three ways to save money shopping online
Online shopping is no longer something that will happen, it is happening and is more normal that anyone would have ever guessed. You can do basically anything online from banking, to buying insurance, to doing any and all kinds of retail shopping. But when you shop online wouldn’t you like to save some money or get cash back? Sure you would and I can help you with that.
You have probably seen the ads on TV regarding E-bates.com. The concept is simple…join E-bates for free. When you want to shop online go to the e-bates site, type in the name of the company you want to shop at…a little coupon will pop up telling you what percentage cash back you will earn. Once that screen clears it will automatically take you to the site and you begin shopping as normal.
You don’t have to do anything else. You will get an e-mail from e-bates giving you the exact dollar about you earned. E-bates mails out checks quarterly. I have been using it for several years. They have a special promotion right now, when you sign up you will get a free $10 gift card. This site is totally legitimate. Who doesn’t like cash back? Sign up here.
I recently found a ‘new’ site for pet food, treats and toys called Chewy.com. The food my dog eats can only be purchased at one place in town. Now that I found Chewy I order one bag of food which is about $35 and some treats so that I get to the $50 mark to earn free delivery. Sometimes I order two bags of food at the same time since I have the room to store those 35 pound bags. They sell all kinds of pet food, not just dog food and treats. Check it out. I have shared this site with friends and everyone is happy with the prices and the service. Sign up here.
Another site that you might now have heard of is Jet.com. I am not a hoarder except for a few items – toilet paper is one of those items. I recently picked up a 12 pack of Scott TP at Walmart at what I thought was a good price. When I found Jet.com I checked their price and was able to buy a pack of 27 rolls for just a few dollars more than the 12 pack at Walmart.
Every time you put an item in your cart you save even more money. It’s a very interesting site and by spending $35 you get free delivery. I am pleased to say I have enough TP for winter, and sufficient paper towels and dishwasher detergent for many months. Delivery was quick and my order was spot on. Sign up here.
I know there are probably many more sites that allow you, the shopper, to save money. These are my three favorites and I wanted to share them with you.
