November 24, 2011
We’re experts at shopping (if you look at my credit card statement, you’ll see I’ve earned it) so we’re sharing our three sneaky tips for how to save money during the holidays, and survive Black Friday. Learn them early–you can thank us later.
1. Get rewarded for shopping.
At Ebates, get 4% cash back (plus free shipping) at 1,200 retailers, just for shopping at your favorite stores. No forms to fill out, no tricks up their sleeves. It’ll change the way you shop, guaranteed.
2. Buy gift cards for LESS than they’re actually worth
Plastic Jungle is THE place to buy gift cards. Get free money – get ’em for less than they retail for, or trade in gift cards you don’t like. This is by far our favorite site during the holidays. Smart trick: if you’re buying an expensive gift, buy a cheaper gift card here to buy it with. Genius, huh?
3. Stop overpaying for shipping
Think free shipping is a rare thing? If you do a lot of online shopping, try Shoprunner. For $79 for year, you’ll get shipping and free returns on everything all year long. Try it free for 30 days!
