shopnbc coupons sales dynasty gold chairA little bit ago, I mentioned our Shop NBC coupons as a great way to save on tons of random stuff at Shop NBC, but I didn't take a minute or two to actually find some things that I enjoyed. Aside from electronics, lolcats, and long walks on the beach, I enjoy curling up with some good TV in a nice golden chair. With 3% cash back at ShopNBC, you can save on much, much more than just your favorite TV shows.

Shop NBC's selection of stuff is so random, it's amazing. You've got jewelery coupons for up to 70% off, laptop and MP3 acessories, kitchen gadgets and even...coins? Yeah. Coins. If you're ever in need of some matching bouillon to go with your Dynasty Gold Chair (search for it), Shop NBC has you covered.  And with the 15% off coupon on our ShopNBC coupon page, you can save extra on practically everything!


And at the end of the day: don't forget your cash back with Ebates!

Drugstore.com DiscountsThere is definitely something to be said for the beauty product junkie who is willing to step out of the "high end cosmetics box" and seek out less-expensive yet completely worthy products to work into the regimen. The best place to go if you too want to explore the expansive world of bargain beauty products is drugstore.com where, if you shop at Ebates you can get 6% Cash Back on all your thrifty purchases. Plus, find money saving coupons, discounts and online rebates.

Shop hundreds of cosmetics brands like Neutrogena and green beauty products from Burt's Bees and more. I am currently obsessed with the L'Oreal Everpure line, a Sulfate-Free haircare product collection formulated with natural, 100% vegan botanicals. Plus, every shampoo, hair styler, and deep conditioner is under $10.

After you're done shopping for products to keep you looking good without breaking the bank, pick up everything else you need from toilet paper to pain relievers.

Cash Back On Michelle Obama Style!Once again I find myself looking at Michelle Obama and thinking she is the best dressed woman in the world, let alone the White House. Her latest fashion "do" is none other than a fantastical pair of Lanvin sneakers. Much as I adore the footwear, her J.Crew sweater is what I'm really after. They say imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, so with that in mind I'm heading over to J.Crew for 1% Cash Back and great style.

Fashion for her is about what looks and feels good, so she constantly reaches for classic pieces like the Cashmere Arygle Sweater shown above. Made from Italian Cashmere, this cozy cardigan may look expensive but it's actually on sale for $99! Until Friday use J.Crew coupon code EXTRA20 and receive another 20% off, making this gem a whopping $100 off the original. While some may call her blending of labels high/low fashion, here at Ebates we call it cash back chic.

Not to over-share too much here, folks, but this semester I am finally finishing my master's program, and I plan to throw a huge graduation party.

Everyone can take advantage of the increased cash back of 8% at Sephora and be spoiled with some freebies with their purchase. Sephora has just about every beauty brand you can imagine plus many that will be new to you. That's where the freebies come in: Sephora offers a constantly changing "sample bar" from which you can select three to add to every purchase. Plus, if you are a Sephora Beauty Insider you will earn points that will qualify you to receive even more free samples (think deluxe size samples). If you fill out or update your Beauty Profile by April 30, you will get 50 free points in May, which brings you halfway to your next deluxe sample.

I recommend that you start browsing the Sale Items if you are looking for a great deal (up to 75% off) on a specific type of product, but aren't looking for a specific brand. When browsing the sales, I always sort my list from low to high price so that I see the cheapest (and often deepest discounted) items first. If you are buying several things from Sephora, then be aware that you can have free shipping with any order over $50. Otherwise shipping is a reasonable and flat rate of $5.95.

Oh, and did I mention there's almost always a coupon code you can enter to add something extra to your bag to spoil you even more? A few of the current coupon codes I found at Ebates include:
NATURALBAG - 8 free samples of natural products, I got this sample pack with my last order and it was a great variety of new products to try
DUWOP - DuWop Prime Venom sample (think lip plumping)
PRIMER - Smashbox Photofinish Primer sample

Sephora gift setAnyone want a free birthday present? Well, my birthday is coming up next month and I love to spoil myself with freebies. Sephora is giving me my choice of Super Shimmer Lip Gloss Trio or Vanilla Cupcake Bath & Shower bubbles with my online order. I don't even need to visit the store (but could and no purchase would be required) because they let me select my birthday present right now. Be sure that you get your birthday present from Sephora too and sign up here!

Whether you are buying yourself a gift or someone else, you are going to be so spoiled with Sephora when shopping with Ebates. I just got spoiled with twelve free samples and a birthday gift with my online purchase today.  If you've got any online shopping to do at Sephora, don't forget to do it before the special 8% Cash Back returns to the normal 4% cash back.  I love Sephora and Ebates so much that I'm spoiling one of my lucky readers with a $50 Sephora eGiftcard giveaway - you should enter right now!

I don't know what you all must think of me after the running themes of my postings. First it was Bier Boot Haus, then Mr. Beer, now, the final piece of the puzzle is dropping in to place: Kegerator.com. "What is a kegerator?" you ask? As some of you linguists probably picked up on, it's a keg-refrigerator. You put the keg in the bottom, tap it, and there is a bar-style draft tap on the top of the refrigerator which will almost immediately supply you with cool refreshing beer.

kegerator cash back coupons savingsWhat makes the beer taste even better is the fact that you will be earning 3% Cash Back from this fine purveyor of beverage-chilling technology. Pair that with the infinite possibility of online coupon codes, and you may even save enough money to buy that first keg to fill your kegerator with!

Cash Back on Seven Designer Denim.jpgI give credit to women who ignore the static mercury and dress as if Spring has sprung.

There I'll find cheap jeans as well as 7 For All Mankind coupons. For a limited time only, it pays even more to shop this site because Ebates will give you increased cash back of 6%!

Piperlime Coupon.jpg"Clomping" is the term for walking like that of a horse, and is commonly used to describe a model's strut down the catwalk, or the unfortunate woman who has yet to master the art of wearing heels. Resembling a Clydesdale is never in fashion, so for those who are shall we say awkward in heels, use Piperlime Coupon Save, and find yourself something easier to walk in. From now until May 3rd, you'll save up to 15% and receive 1% cash back at Ebates.

Most women opt for heels because of their uplifting abilities, but a stiletto offers little ankle support and makes balancing nearly impossible. Instead, shop for espadrilles or a wedge like this pair from Nine West, and not only will you meet the height requirement, but you'll look ultra chic doing so. At less than $100, this shoe is a smart choice for your posture, and your wallet!

logo-mexicana.gifIt's no surprise that Mexico has become a premier spot for getaway travel; they have beautiful sandy beaches, sparkling clear blue water, and a vast array of frozen cocktails with little umbrellas in them. Plus, with the exchange rate and the different economies right now, it's the perfect time to go south of the border and have some fun.

While most of you may know about the great values on trips to Mexico at the moment, I don't know how many of you are aware of Mexicana Airlines. You also might not be aware that Mexicana Airlines is going to be the Ebates Daily Double this coming Saturday, April 18th, which means you'll be getting 2% cash back on all your travel purchases. Take a look around their site - they have killer deals on flights, package deals on hotels and resorts, and even flights to non-Mexican countries.

brum.jpgIf there's one thing I hate doing, it's getting out my broom and dustpan to clean my floors. It's not that I don't necessarily enjoy sweeping things, it's that I hate the dustpan. Regardless of how many times I try to sweep up every ounce of dirt and dander into the dustpan, I'm always left with a thick line of crud that must be cleaned up once again. Thus begins the infuriating "dustpan dance"; making the vacuum the second-most useful invention for my sanity (the first being the Internet, with 3% Ebates cash back, coupons, and more).

Now for the big question: are you ready to end that dustpan dance forever? Thanks to the cordless Dirt Devil Red Broom Vac, you'll never have to experience that torturous tango ever again! With a simple flick of a switch, the rechargeable Broom Vac sucks up all your refuse into its bagless container - it's that easy!

Expedia CouponsWith summer inching closer, the antsy "I need a vacation" feeling is becoming more and more impossible to quiet.

It probably doesn't surprise you, but my favorite part of working at Ebates is helping shoppers like you get your checks and Paypal payments every three months. I know how it is to shop through Ebates and watch the money pile up, but it's never truly real until I have the money in my wallet or bank account.

It's about that time again! Soon we will be stacking up postal trays full of checks to be sent out on May 15th.

The first step in the process for us if finding out who we are going to pay this time around. Not only do you have to have at least $5.01 in cash back for orders prior to April 1st, but we have to make sure that we know where to send your money. You'd be surprised at how many shoppers forget to enter their name and mailing address into their Ebates account profile. If we don't know your name and address, we can't send out the money.

Take a minute today to check on your account profile. Make sure we don't have an old address, or no address at all. Remember, we need your name and mailing address, even if you are scheduled to get your payment via Paypal.

I'm looking forward to sending you your next payment from Ebates. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do!

Finding it increasingly difficult to shell out $100 for just about anything, I am constantly on the hunt for fashion forward pieces that don't skimp on style or quality, but don't break the bank either. While it may seem like a tall order, it seems that most retailers have caught on and are now making it easier to weed out the pricier pieces to showcase the more affordable. Once such place is JCrew, where shopping for the newest in chic yet affordable clothing is simple with a page of "Instant Gratification" devoted entirely to items under $100.
JCrewDiscountHat.jpg
I am buying this Tilbry Hat for just $34.50 with 1% cash back, because it's the quintessential warm-weather accessory that is cheap, stylish, and functional. For $98, these ballet flats will make dressing for the average day exponentially easier, more comfortable, and impeccably chic.

Cash Back on Travel Deals.jpgI have a confession to make. I hate, no, make that loathe, planning vacations. Spending my free time browsing countless travel sites, calculating whether the "package" deal will actually save money, and dealing with blackout dates (coincidentally the same dates I have off from work) is enough stress to warrant giving up the idea altogether. Thanks to Ebates and Southwest Vacations, the stress of planning is gone. Not only will I find money saving coupons, but I'll receive double cash back through Ebates.

At Southwest Vacations, you're able to shop by destination, vacation theme, or by which deals save the biggest bucks. Need party time with the hubby? Save up to $75 on Las Vegas packages with code LASSPRG. Looking for a family vacation? Enjoy up to three nights free at the Universal Orlando Resort. For information on activities in your destination, Southwest Vacations provides shows, tours, and other excursions, all at reduced prices. Considering the myriad of ways to save money, I'll never put off planning a trip again.

401324-FB~Girl-with-Umbrella-Walking-in-the-Rain-Posters.jpgWebster's Dictionary defines the word "variable" as something that is subject to variation or change. The chaotic weather of Spring and the erratic market are variables that effect my wardrobe and my wallet. In a world of change, it's nice to know there's one thing I can depend on: cash back for all my Spring purchases, no matter what they are.

Hunter Rain Boot.jpg

Just because the weather is undecided, that doesn't mean your wardrobe should be. It is possible to stay dry while looking look like Spring has sprung. How? Ditch the blacks and greys, and opt for cheerier colors like these Hunter Rain Boots in bright yellow. Available at Nordstrom, I'll get free shipping with code SHOES until April 13th, and because I'm a member of Ebates, I'll receive 3% cash back on all Nordstrom purchases. I like the idea of wearing these with a full skirt and a light jacket, but they look just as cute worn over jeans. Regardless of which way you choose to wear these, you'll stay dry and look ultra chic.

In a time where a sale or a promotion is to be expected, it's tough for a shopper not to become immune to sayings like "Additional 50% off Clearance Items" and "Buy One Get Two Free". If you have reached that point, and consider yourself to be utterly overwhelmed with sales and deep discounts, take a step back and perhaps even a deep breath and a visit to Ebates. When we advertise sales, we know that it's something not to be missed, and when we add merchants with exclusive offers, we make sure that the deal is enough to excite even the most jaded shopper (myself included).

Dear readers, I'm a simple man with simple taste. While our fashion ladies constantly amaze me with their attention to detail and their ability to stay ahead of the ever-shifting fashion curve, I tend to be much more traditionalist. While they keep their eyes peeled on the latest catalogs, fashion magazines, and foreign runways, I tend to look at comfort clothing and the sales racks in my local shops. Therefore there's really just one thing that I have to focus on in order to not look foolish: timeless fashion. Luckily for me (and therefore, you) that is something I've got in spades. Luckily, there are currently some lightweight plaid shirts on sale just in time for summer.

Let me preface this a bit: see, I'm not much of a summer person. I blame my Scandinavian blood, paired with my upbringing in the fog belt of San Francisco, but any time it gets much over eighty five degrees or so, I start to melt. For that very reason, I tend not to be especially fond of summer; rather, I look forward to the cold months when I can wear a sweatshirt and be perfectly comfortable. There is one style, however, that I can't get enough of when the weather warms up, and that is the button (or snap)-down plaid shirt. They're usually lively in color, lightweight, and really classic looking. I suppose you sort of have to develop an eye for it, but for my sake, I just have to ask one question: how will it look with a fedora?

Old Navy Western Shirt.jpgSo today I went on a little quest for a few shirts that I knew I could not only make look good with the proper hat, but also that wouldn't put much of a ding in my wallet. The first one I found was at Old Navy; their Short Sleeved Western Shirt. Nothing screams "timeless" like a western shirt with yoking in the back and pearlized snaps instead of buttons. What I like most about Old Navy's take on the classic western shirt is that they don't do any of the over-the-top ornate designs; there is no rhinestone studding, there is no high-contrast stitching or "faux-vintage" graphic work added. What you see is what you get, and thanks to Old Navy, if you get what you see before April 9th, you'll save an extra 30% off your purchase with coupon code NEW30 at checkout. This particular shirt is available in a number of different colors, depending on what style you like. Get everything you like from Old Navy and get 2% cash back from Ebates!


St. Johns Bay Poplin Shirt.JPGThe other discounted shirt that I found was from JCPenney. These St. John's Bay poplin button-down shirts are a tad more formal, with the button-down collar and pleated back, but it still screams Summer thanks to the light colors and lightweight poplin material.You can pair this shirt just as easily with a pair of khakis as you can with a pair of jeans, and it can be worn under everything from a blazer to a zip-up sweatshirt. But the best part of all about this shirt is that during the Spring Sale at JCPenney, it is about 45% off - just $16.99, marked down from $30.00.  And hey, if these shirts don't suit your fancy, there is an entire sale section at JCPenney where you can find just the right look for the whole family. Whatever you end up getting, you know you'll get 4% cash back when you use your Ebates account.

If you didn't like what you saw here, find all sorts of Spring and Summer apparel in our Clothing category!

eBay-CouponsAs stated in my eBay obsessions blog, there's no limit to what one can find when browsing the world's largest market. Designer cashmere scarves? They got it. Vintage Flapper dresses? Done. Mesopotamian jewelry? Obviously. In fact, eBay is so extensive they even have coupons. Yes that's right, I said eBay coupons.

Try to contain yourself.

For those coupon junkies out there (guilty as charged) you may be wondering just how and where do coupons take center stage on eBay. As we all know, eBay works as an auction site, with the price of any item being set by the seller (called setting a reserve or buy-it-now feature) or by the highest bidder (yay-you won!). Because eBay does not own the millions of products auctioned off on its site, there are no sitewide coupons, but there are in fact eBay coupons. How? Well, there are two main ways to find coupons and other deals on eBay.

The first involves a seller reducing their item(s) or selling an item at lower than retail cost. Say I purchased a wine rack in a department store for $50, and have it listed at $25. As long as I can prove the original price, my item is 50% off. If you're interested in who's got what, and for how cheap, click on the green Deals button to see sellers with discounted items, or which sellers offer free shipping deals. The second way to use eBay coupons is to search them out. Type in coupons into the search feature, and over twenty thousand options appear ranging from cereal to Las Vegas buffets. With over thirty five coupon categories to choose from, there's ways to save on everything. Like everything purchased on eBay, when you shop through Ebates you'll receive 3% cash back. Add that to your coupon savings and watch the savings add up!

A nice TV is essential for any room. Of course, that's not to say a nice TV is essential for every room (although I could probably argue for it), but with HDTVs as cheap as they are nowadays, there's never been a better time to ask yourself the timeless tech question: is it time to upgrade? With great HDTVs like this Toshiba 32" LCD on sale for just $500 from Newegg, however, the better question is "Why not?" With free shipping and 2% cash back from Ebates, the choice has never been clearer!

toshi.jpgThis dandy little Toshiba 32" LCD HDTV is not just a great HDTV for your front room, but for just about any room in your house. Quite frankly, wherever you might have an old clunky CRT screen in your house is a great place to have a new LCD. They're much smaller, relatively inexpensive, and a sweet way to save on space while bringing your guest room into the 21st century. Even better, the crystal clear 720p picture and surprisingly awesome speakers are perfect for smaller rooms needing a little bit more pizazz without all the fuss of a 52" monster TV and 7.1 surround sound. For most rooms, 32" is all you'll need for quite some time - and when you add in the HD capabilities with this particular 32" Toshiba HDTV, well, you've got yourself a match made in heaven.

Whether you're looking to upgrade, fill a new room, or just get a new, shiny thing for your front room, this 32" Toshiba LCD HDTV makes a great pick and it's $250 off! For only $499 with free shipping, it's hard to find a better deal on the web; although you could always try and see what you could finagle with a few Toshiba coupons from our electronics category. Great deals are hidden in the darnedest of places!

MarcBlouse.jpgWith a stock of designer brands that rivals high-end department stores, eLUXURY has always been a great destination for high end designer goods (Louis Vuitton et. al) and contemporary names like Alexander Wang, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Rag & Bone, Current/Elliott, and Marc By Marc Jacobs to list a few. With a selection like that, it is impossible not to check it out; especially when you can get 1% cash back and free shipping on orders of $50 or more.

On my weekly perusal of the site to see what's new and amazing, I discovered that they were having an Early Spring Sale in where some new season designer clothing, shoes and accessories are up to 40% off. Shopping the over forty pages of sale items, there was a lot of fabulous clothing on sale. I was ecstatic when I found this Space-Dyed Blouse from Marc By Marc Jacobs on sale for just $99 with 1% cash back. It is the perfect Spring blouse because it will pair as easily with my dark skinny jeans and  heels as it will with broken in chinos and a flat sandal. Plus, with the modest price of just $100, and the slightly avant-garde but totally wearable nature of it, I know I will throw it on all season. Shop the eLUXURY sale and find some discounted designer clothing for yourself with 1% cash back!

Home_Depot.jpgThere comes a point when talking about Spring sounds more like a sales pitch than a reason to shop.

Shop Home Depot through Ebates and you'll also receive 3% cash back. Piece of cake.

This past week, I was complaining to a friend about the failure of my printer. I was going to print out some photos for my family, and the next thing I knew, I was awash in blinking red lights. Luckily I was able to upload my photos to Shutterfly, find a Shutterfly coupon for 20% off, and simply click "proceed" to get the prints made. My complaining about not being able to print my pictures and have them in my hand immediately, all from the comfort of my bedroom, got me thinking...

logo_sfly_story1-v12362725290001784.gifIn the current day and age, photography has taken on a whole new meaning. I can remember growing up, having to make sure every picture my family snapped was absolutely perfect, because we couldn't waste film. Film was carefully loaded into cameras, and you never knew for sure if you were going to get the twenty four exposures, or if you might luck out and get a few more shots on the roll. When all was said and done, we'd go down to any number of local drug stores and drop off our roll of film; three or four days later, we'd get an envelope back rife with random pictures of feet, giant fingers invading pictures from an upper corner, or just random pictures full of darkness. Today, we can leave all of that behind us.

Today, we have four-inch screens to show us whether or not the pictures we take are "the perfect picture" and rather than a roll of film with twenty four exposures, we have memory cards that are smaller, more durable, and can hold literally thousands of pictures. Plus, they are completely re-usable. The other advantage we have now is that we have services like Shutterfly to do all our dirty work for us, assuring we get crystal-clear prints that we can edit and fix as we see fit. Plus, you can use a Shutterfly coupon, like this one, to save 20% on your order through April 13th. Or, if it is your first Shutterfly order, you're eligible for twenty five free prints. Or get your face on a mug! Or make a calendar! Or do whatever other fun things you want with your photos!

Viva la Digital Revolucion!

With my list of Spring wardrobe must-haves rapidly expanding and my budget dwindling, my hopes for scoring a new spring handbag at cheap price were all but lost. Although I have my beloved (and amazingly functional) Marc By Marc Jacobs Classic Hillier Hobo bag from last year, it was beginning to feel less and less exciting with each passing day. I was desperate to find a cheap bag that would hold up to my abuse and be stylish enough to tote around with confidence. Luckily, my desperation was short lived because there are way more cheap bags to be found and even designer bags with discounts, so scoring a new Spring bag that was as faithful to my budget as it is to my sense of style was an easy feat.
GusttoTote.jpgI have had my eye on this suede Gustto tote bag for sometime, and now that it is 40% off, it seems like a good time to consider it. I like that it has the multi-functional straps and it seems roomy enough to use as a work tote and sophisticated enough to go from day to night. However, even at 40% off, the price of the bag is still $381, and although I would get 4% cash back and $30 off all orders $150 or more with a Bluefly coupon, I needed to find something for a lot less and not blow a chunk of my shopping budget on just one item.


CharlesDavidShopper.jpg

I scored big when I found this stylish shopper-style bag for 56% off at Smart Bargains. Once $275, this bag has been reduced to just $119 with 3% cash back. Although this bag is available for a hefty discount, it looks neither cheap nor outdated.

If I want to go lower than $100, there is an option from Target for just $44.99 with 4% cash back and free shipping over $50. It is cute, bright and perfect for Spring. Plus, with a price tag under $45, I can feel justified in adding another handbag into my collection.

If you too are looking for a cheap new handbag, but none of these strike your fancy, shop our shoes & accessories category.

So are we! As one of the priciest and hottest destinations for shoes on the web, Nike coupons are in short supply this time of year. Thankfully, you don't have to wait for a sale to save big with Ebates! Thanks to our everyday savings, you can get 6% cash back on all purchases from Nike just by going through Ebates - a great way to save when you consider how tricky it can be to come by useful Nike coupons nowadays!

nike-apc-all-court-shoe-1.jpgThere isn't much to be said about Nike that hasn't already been mentioned somewhere on the Internets. In truth, they're the biggest name in sports apparel and shoes, and you just can't beat their style which ranges from "innovative" to "timeless." Considering more people would likely recognize the iconic Nike swoosh than the the last four presidents, it's no surprise that everyone wants a Nike coupon or two. Although we're waiting for special coupons to come our way in the near future, you can always enjoy the $100 free shipping coupon listed on their website to tide you over.

As long as you want 'em, we'll be searching for more and more Nike coupons. Until then, why not look for a pair in Ebates' shoe category to tide you over? There's no such thing as too many new shoes, right ladies?

Shopaholic.jpgIt's not uncommon for someone who hears "I work in fashion" to conjure up images of sprawling closets a la Carrie Bradshaw, or fits of delirium a la Rebecca Bloomwood in Confessions of a Shopaholic. As much as I would love to have a fraction of the clothing as those fictitious characters, fashionistas like myself are bound by the same fiscal responsibility as everyone else. We too must shop within budget, searching out the best coupon codes, and using online rebates. It's not easy, but over time a properly trained fashionista is able to separate the must-have, from the can't-live-without all in the same breath. With a plethora of Spring trends to choose from, the line between what I want and what I need just got blurry. In order to keep my closet (and my budget) in check, I've mapped out the best trends of Spring Fashion 2009. Enjoy and Happy Spring!

Trend # 1  - Menswear

Aqua Boyfriend Blazer.jpgSpring Fashion 2009 is filled with exquisite tailoring, bold colors, and ethereal pieces. With so many trends to choose from, selecting what works and what doesn't can be nearly impossible. For those wanting to test the waters with Spring's menswear look, try an oversized blazer or a pair of pleated pants. Bloomingdale's sells this Boyfriend Jacket for just $88, making it an affordable addition to your wardrobe. Because this jacket stands alone, be sure to pair it with basic bottoms, like jeans or leggings. After several seasons of crazy prints and outlandish colors, leggings have come back down to earth. This season the legging is more of a pant, with more weight and less frills than years past. National Jean Company sells leggings by David Lerner, LnA, and Splendid to name a few, plus you'll get 6% cash back through Ebates with every purchase. When it comes to leggings, I prefer subdued colors such as navy, and grey, but if you're the adventurous type, try teal or fire red.

LancomeSun.jpgAround this time of year, I always look in horror at the pasty whiteness that has become of my skin. And true to my yearly habit, I think two thoughts when I examine myself: one, I need a tan, and two, I need to wear lots and lots of sunscreen. While most health care professionals will agree that sun protection is a year-round thing, my regimen consists of sun block on the face year-round and on the body only when the extremities are exposed. Indeed, it is getting to be about that time where sun protection needs to reach farther than the face.

With so many sunscreens on the market, it is really difficult to find the one that is right for you. An obvious way to pick a sunscreen is to consider how much you are exposed to direct sunlight and how fair your skin is, and then go from there. Most people who don't work outdoors or spend extended periods of the day in the sun can wear an SPF 15-30 and be completely protected. I am very pale with sensitive skin; so while I do my best to avoid the direct sunlight, it seems foolish and horribly boring to stay out of the sun on a gorgeous Spring day.

My comprise? Rather than giving up the beloved sun, I douse myself in Lancôme SÔLEIL ULTRA EXPERT SUN CARE SPF 50. The triple action formula not only protects the skin from the sun, it also hydrates and firms. I feel that they only way I am actually going to take the time to put on sunscreen in the morning is if it provides tangible and immediate benefits. For just $34.50, you are getting a three-in-one bang for your buck that is suited for virtually any skin type. Plus, get 6% increased cash back and save more with Red Hot Dollars, get $5 off $25, $10 off 50+, $15 off $75 or $20 off $200+. And get a free deluxe-sized sample of one of Lancôme's best selling products with any Lancôme purchase at Macy's.

new_apple_ipod_shuffle_4gb_1-382x480.jpgBack in the olden days of fledgling MP3 players and mobile music devices, there was only one option when it came to your MP3 player: Big. From clunky first-generation exteriors,"large" (at the time) hard drives, and, of course, inflated prices, "big" was par for the course, with little respite in the way of the variety of cheap MP3 players we have nowadays. Today, there are cheap MP3 players that fit on your keychain and hold enough songs to keep you entertained for days. My, how things have changed!

While I wouldn't condone a shoddily constructed media player, a good, cheap MP3 player is a necessity for everyone nowadays - from your Great Aunt Gertrude down to your five-year-old little brother. Why? Because of how far we've come with digital media, that's why! Anyone and everyone can pop their old CDs into their computer (or hop onto Rhapsody or the iTunes music store), compile their favorite songs into a larger playlist, and have tens of thousands of songs and albums available to them at the drop of a dime. You just can't beat that kind of convenience!

If you are in the market for a new, cheap MP3 player, Ebates has a wide array of merchants to choose from, each with their own selection of doodads and gizmos. Of course, you could always start with what's new and exciting, and that brings us right to the new 4GB iPod shuffle! It'll hold 4GB (or about 1000) of your favorite songs, and is so tiny you can literally take it with you wherever you go. For only $79, it's a no-brainer - if you want something so tiny you can take it to the ends of the earth, the Shuffle's for you.

Zunes
On the other end of the cheap MP3 player spectrum comes the Zune: Microsoft's response to Apple's iPod, and a fine player at that! On top of features like Wi-Fi sync, a monthly downloading service, and a gorgeous, full-color screen that holds its ground against the pricey iPod Touch any day, the Zune comes in myriad colors and styles to fit your style. In particular, the Zune comes in two distinct flavors: small (4/8/16GB) and large (80 & 120GB), so pick the one that's right for you! You could use a little originality, couldn't you? Stand out with a Zune!

At the end of the day, what matters is that you have a good little device to take with you to listen to your tunes. Any one of these players will make a fine choice, and with Ebates, you can always be sure you're saving the most on your cheap MP3 player with cash back on all your purchases - all day, every day!

No matter what your typical dressing routine entails, most everyone has some kind of wardrobe uniform, an item, items, or a look that they wear most often. My uniform is some kind of mixture of a pair of jeans and a t-shirt. It's what I am most comfortable in, and my uniform is appropriate for my lifestyle. However mundane my daily dressing is, I try to do the most with each item that I throw into the mix. As shopping budgets get tighter (read: non-existent) and the weather gets warmer, it seems more practical to throw on the ol' uniform, make a few weather-appropriate adjustments, and get on with the day. However, there has to be some give-and-take so that we can spoil ourselves just a bit and make dressing for the day exciting while we put a little spring in our step. Also, little luxuries along the way prevent major splurges.


 MeshChainNecklace.jpgA great way to make your wardrobe uniform a little less drab or spice up some older items in your closet is to pick up some accessories. I can think of no better place to start shopping for accessories than Ann Taylor, where not only will you get increased cash back, now 5% for the Spring Savings Promotion, but you will also save 25% off any full price order with coupon code 104013279 at checkout. And it gets better. All accessories are currently buy one get one at 50% off! Truly, there is no reason not to shop for spring updates at Ann Taylor. Their selection of great, affordable pieces includes this Endless Mesh Chain Necklace, available for $69 or this Multi-Strand Mesh Necklace for just $49 both available with 5% cash back. Pair them both together with a simple top for the ultimate statement, or pick up one and sport a complementary bracelet for a classic look.

When I started this series of postings, I was focused primarily on Ebates merchants who were a little more "out there" - you know, ones with odd names or, if possible, odd products. I find that while I enjoy doing those types of merchants very much, those posts tend to be as much a "do you believe?" as a "did you know?" Today, however, I am doing more of an honest-to-goodness public service announcement than anything else. I have discussed, ad nauseum, to a crazy degree, on and on how much I love t-shirts. I'm silly with them. So, when Jen, our resident merchant superstar, asked me if we should add 6 Dollar Shirts to our site, I immediately said "of course!" 

6dollarshirts_logo.gifSometimes it's nice when a company delivers exactly what they promise; case in point - 6dollarshirts. You go to their site, you find an array of clever, silly, humorous, and unique t-shirts. Guess how much they cost? That's right: six dollars. If that isn't good enough for you, if you need t-shirts for less than $6, then guess what; if you get ten shirts, they drop to five dollars a piece. Let's be blunt here, folks: you can't find cheap blank t-shirts for that cheap. So, in Bill world at least, this is too good to be passed up.

What's that you say? You want to save even more? Well then let me make your day: when you shop at 6DollarShirts and use your Ebates account, you'll earn 5% cash back on all your purchases. To put that in practical terms, you'll be saving thirty cents per shirt if you pay six dollars. Still not enough? Then you bulk-buyers, lend me your ear: want to buy an array of tees? Maybe you think you can re-sell somewhere, or maybe you just love graphic tees more than me. Then you'll love this: you automatically save 25% off all orders over one hundred shirts, or 35% off orders of over five hundred shirts. Buy big, and that's less than $4 a shirt. Plus 5% cash back. That is completely insane. Trust me.

Find more tees, graphic or not, at merchants on our shirt page.
