Cyber Monday Tips & Tricks!

Now that Black Friday has officially come and gone, it is time to gear up for Cyber Monday!  The benefits include shopping in your pajamas, no waiting in line, and no gas money!  Many stores will be having special deals, including free shipping and percentages off.

There are also a few other ways to save even more on Cyber Monday.  Here are some good tips and tricks:

1. Sign up for Ebates.  They are a store cash back online rebate-type program that helps you get money back when you shop online.  Click HERE to sign up.  Once you are signed up, you have access to online store coupon codes, as well as cash back each and every time you shop.  For example, if the offer is 5% cash back at Kohl's, and you spend $100, you will get $5 back!  You will have an check delivered right to your door, ready to deposit into your account!  No receipt to submit.  Its super easy, and only takes about a minute to join!

Best Ebates deals available today:

*20% off Kohl's, plus 6% cash back

*Groupon 4.5% cash back

*25% off select items at Macy's, many BOGO items, plus 6% cash back

*Home Depot up to 50% off select items, plus 5% cash back

*Sears up to 60% off apparel, plus 6% cash back

2. Sign up for Swagbucks.  Swagbucks is a search-engine like google.  As you search for things on the internet, you can earn points.  Your points add up, and you can trade them in for e-gift cards!  This year, I earned a $25 Target gift card, a $10 Target gift card, and a $10 CVS gift card (which I used this week.)  I decided to add the swagbucks toolbar, which puts an extra point in your account every day you long on the computer.  That's $45 earned this year, just by searching the internet like I normally would!  To sign up, just go HERE

3. Use Retail Me Not.  Retail Me Not offers various coupon codes that you can use while shopping online!  Before you shop, search for your store and see if there are any coupon codes available. 

4. Try out Groupon.  Groupon offers discount deals on a variety of items, usually at least 50% off!  Their deals are especially good for gift cards.  Often, you can grab a $20 gift card for $10!  After browsing today's deals quickly, I found a Royal Loom Bands Kid (one of the Hottest kids items this year), marked from $14.99 down to $6.99!  To join and search the deals, just go HERE and sign up!

5. Use your store card if you have one.  Many stores offer extra savings if you shop with their store credit card.  I saved $8 yesterday, after shopping with my Target card. (Plus I used my Swagbucks gift cards, and received my ebates cash back discount!)

6. Finally, SHOP AROUND.  If there is an item you are looking for, check on numerous store websites before purchasing it.  Sometimes you will think you found a HOT deal, only to find the same item 10 minutes after you purchase it for $5 less than what you paid!  (And of course, link to that site through Ebates to get your cash back!)

Please share any of your Cyber Monday Tips with us!  Good luck with your online purchases.

Happy Shopping!
