Hi everyone! I am so excited to be sharing this with you! I recently wrote a post, Gift ideas which can be found here. This post will go along with that post.
I am going to show you ways that you can save even more money while online shopping. I have two weapons that I use for saving lots of money online. Ebates and Honey. These two extensions hang out on the top of each page I open. When I need them they will remind me to activate the cash back from purchases or they will be directly on my shopping cart telling me what savings I can get.
First, there is Ebates. I love Ebates! It is just one click and the savings is done. Nothing more for you to do except wait for your big fat check. They send out checks every three months. Those checks are what you earned in cash back from the previous 3 months. Sometimes my checks are small like $6.00. Then there are times where I get a $40.00 check. I don’t do a lot of online shopping so these cash back checks were done with little shopping.
I do search around for good deals on products then I see what Ebates has to offer. I always do my research when shopping online. Not only am I careful and order from sites that I trust, but I also am careful where I share my debit card.
Ebates website is easy to navigate. You can search for a product or store. Searching for a product will give you results to the product, what store, and the cashback percentage. Click on the button and off you go to the website where the product is and land on the page where the product is. Nothing more to do except order your product.
One thing to remember is that the percentage off on each store changes all the time. You could see Walmart on Ebates as 1% cash back and the next time I could be 3% or higher. I have seen it as high as 10%. Each store varies on what the percentage of cash back.
They also have in-store cash back. It is simple to use. Go to the Ebates website and click on ‘In-store cash back’. Then enter your debit card or credit card information. Go back to the in-store cash back and go through the list of stores that offer cash back and click on ‘link offer’. Then when you go to that store and shop you will automatically get credit for the cash back.
*IMPORTANT* When you use your card at the store make sure that you run it as credit and sign the receipt.
Right now if you sign up for Ebates as a new member you will receive $10 after you spend your first $25! YES! More free money!
My other saving weapon is Honey. This is something that is new to me. I have not been using it that long. But when I did decide to download as a chrome extension I loved it. It has saved me so much especially online shopping for Christmas. Once you are at a website the little ‘h’ next to the address bar will have a number next to it. That is the number of deals you can get.
Decide what you want, add to shopping cart and when you go to check out Honey will be on the check out page telling you what offers are available and it will run them and tell you what worked. I have saved a surprising amount with this little extension.
If those offers don’t work Honey will ask you if you want to try codes less likely to work. You answer yes or no. I always run more just in case there is a possibility that one will work.
Once again click this link for Honey.

Now it is time for you to go to Ebates and signup. When that is done then go to Honey and signup. Then go shopping and enjoy saving money.
