How To Strategically Shop Online

I’m popping in today with a very friendly (and unsponsored, but affiliate) public service announcement. It’s about both saving and earning money and is plain ol’ awesome in my opinion. You with me? It’s really fabulous!

Meet Ebates …


Here’s the deal … I’ve been using Ebates for online shopping for about 2 years now. Consistently for the last 12 months I’d say. In that amount of time I’ve earned $408.70! Earning that has cost me nothing and the Ebates system is so easy to use! You simply visit the site and type in the retailer you want to purchase from. Ebates redirects you there and you shop as normal while earning a percent back on your order. See? Easy! I seriously love getting my quarterly checks from Ebates and can’t imagine shopping online without this amazing feature. It’s not a gimmick, cross my heart; it’s just smart.

Here is how you too can start earning free money via your regular purchases from Ebates …

  1. Create an Ebates account here.
  2. Make a mental note that before you purchase anything online, you first visit
  3. Once at Ebates, search the store you plan to place an order with (my frequent stops are Amazon and Nordstrom, with other favorites being GAP and eBay) and click the red “shop now”. 
  4. Ebates will redirect you to Nordstrom or wherever, and log a “shopping trip” on your Ebates account.
  5. Once your order processes like normal through the retailer you chose you’ll see the amount of money you earned on that particular order in your Ebates account.
  6. That’s it! You’re done! You’ve earned free money!

Checks are mailed quarterly and there are awesome referral bonuses for sharing Ebates with your friends and family. This is such a fast way to earn free money! Talk about building up an easy Christmas or vacation stash!
