Are you ready for all of the online shopping?
The holiday season usually brings spending money on gifts for the important people in your life. If you are like me and like to shop online to avoid the crazy shopping malls and people out and about, then you need to make sure you are ready for all of the great deals headed our way.
The first step is to sign up for the cash back sites that give you money back on your online purchases. Some of my favorites are Shop at Home, Cashbaq and Ebates. Click on any of the links to get signed up for your FREE account. These sites are completely legitimate and FREE! You just sign into your account before you start shopping and then search the store you are looking for on their site. Once you find it, you click a link that sends you to the store you are looking for and then shop as usual. You will receive cash back to you once you hit a minimum required cash out amount and you usually can get a check or a deposit into your Paypal account. This is such a great way to save even a little bit more money while doing your shopping!
Another great resource for shopping online is Amazon. They are currently offering a program called Amazon Mom, where if you have kids or care for kids you can sign up to get 2 months of FREE Amazon Prime shipping. You don't have to be a Mom to take part in this program. That means you don't have to get to a minimum order amount to get FREE shipping and it ships 2-day shipping to your door. I'd say I do 75% of my holiday shopping through Amazon and this great program makes it that much better. I love shopping in my PJs and getting the gifts delivered to my door step 2 days later.
See this previous post about Amazon Mom for further details on this great program.
