My New Favorite Way To Earn Money [And A Ton Of The Best After Christmas Sale Links!]

Welcome back friends - I hope you all had a great Christmas and have done an incredible job of snuggling deep into your couches with coffee in hand and all sorts of great movies on TV. Is anybody else going a little stir crazy or is it just me that the holidays does this to? Fortunately, stir craziness has led to me do a little bit of investigative work on the "after Christmas sale" front and believe me, I've found some things for you and I to take advantage of.

Before we get into all of the shops that are offering you ways to save money, first lets talk about how you can now earn money on your purchases (both online and in-store, WHAT?!). I should start by saying that none of this is sponsored but that I recently learned about this service from one my friends and I'm hooked like glue. It's called Ebates and probably several of you already know about it because you are actually with the times. Here's how it works and why it is so great - 

1. It is completely FREE to sign up + when doing so, you will receive a $10 gift card to your store of choice which you will receive after you spend $25 or more on a website using Ebates! What Ebates does is offers you cash back just for doing your regular shopping like you always would - you don't have to do anything special, but can receive anywhere from 1-10% cash back on your purchases from most websites (ranging from your popular retail stores to hotel chains to Expedia to Amazon etc). 

2. When shopping online, you can either first go to the ebates website and then click through to the website you would like to shop at or simply download the toolbar widget like I did and click on "activate cash back" once at the website. You do need to do either of these two options to make sure you will receive the cash back from your purchases. 

3. Not a big online shopper? No problem! If you simply add your credit or debit card to the Ebates website, you can then look through all of the in store cash back options and click on "link offer" so that when you are in store shopping at any of the linked stores, you will automatically earn the cash back! 

4. You will then receive a check in the mail or a payment to your PayPal account - easy as that! 

Now that I've got you all squared away on how to make money from your purchases, I've also done the dirty work for you by researching all of the best sales PLUS the additional discount codes that you can be using along with checking out how much cash back you will earn in the process. Phew, you'll be making money by the end of this if everything goes well ;) Have fun!

  1. Ohhh thanks for sharing! The browser extension makes ebates a lot more attractive. I've never signed up because I figured I'd never remember to use it!

  2. I'm totally okay with being stir crazy..especially during the holidays. There is nothing like being deeply snuggled into my couch, with my coffee, and a good movie. Especially now that for Christmas my husband bought us a brand new 60' TV.

    The things you learn.....I would have never known! I think this may just become my new favorite obsession (as if I need anymore) HAHA

    Thanks for sharing!!

  3. I love Ebates! I've been using it for years and just recently noticed that they do cash back from in store purchases. I'm so excited!!


I read and appreciate every one of your comments. Thanks for stopping by my space and sharing a piece of yourself on this huge ole internet. I meant that in the least creepy way possible. I'm just good at making everything awkward. Anyhow, thank you for your comments. They make me smile :)
