Everybody likes to find a good deal and save a few dollars, but not everyone knows where to look in order to save money. My family regularly tells me that I am the queen of bargain hunting (I am sure there are many women out there who are much more bargain-savy than I am), and I thrive on making sure I get the most bang for my buck. This is why I have started doing so much of my shopping online.
A few years back, I was introduced to ebates, a website that offers you cashback for linking to your favourite online stores through the ebates website. In the time that I have used ebates, I have managed to earn almost $1000 cash back. Because of this, I now look for ways to do my shopping online, ordering birthday or holiday gifts, home renovation materials, hotels and vacations, or occasionally shopping for myself, I do it all through ebates.
I have a number of family members who live in the USA, and do some of my shopping through American websites. I have accounts with both ebates.ca and ebates.com in order to take advantage of the most savings, as some websites are only connected to ebates.com.
If you have not tried ebates yet, I highly recommend it, and if you sign up through my referral links, we both get a bonus.
