The moment has finally arrived! Welcome to the premier of The Daily Cash Back, the official blog of Ebates. My name is Rebecca, and I'll be featuring the top deals and savviest shopping tips on the web offered through Ebates! Be sure to come back often so you can stay on top of the latest deals we have to offer!
The hottest thing right now is green. No, not the color of your aunt’s avocado-hued fridge from the ‘60’s, but being a little more aware of how your purchases impact workers and the environment. You may be thinking, “Well, I’d sure love to buy those organic, fair-trade, free-range , solar-powered coffee beans from the Chilean mountains, but for $25 a pound? NO THANKS.” Not so fast! You can still do your part to make Earth-friendly purchases but keep plenty of green in your wallet.
For instance, check out REI.com. They’re having a July 4th Sale and Clearance on clothing, camping gear, footwear and more with markdowns at 25-30% off. If you haven’t gotten a membership to REI, I recommend that you do so, pronto! Any Joe Schmo can get discounts during the seasonal sale, but only REI members get hooked up with a nice fat refund check at the end of the year. The more you spend, the bigger the refund- gotta love those Bay Area consumer co-ops (businesses that are co-owned by the customer). Top this off with 3% Cash Back from Ebates and you’ll have two Big Fat Checks to look forward to! Be sure to take a look at their Organic Cotton separates for men and women that’ll come in handy for yoga, summertime hikes through Yosemite, or even just a walk around the block.
And that fancy coffee I mentioned earlier? Start at Ebates (to get your Cash Back!) and check out the shipping special for MotherNature.com. They’ve got several varieties of fair trade, organic whole bean coffees by Green Mountain that are delicious! Their Breakfast Blend has been getting great online reviews and would be perfect for your first cup of the morning. Pick up some of their green-friendly Divine Dark or Milk Chocolate as well and enjoy free shipping on the whole order!
