One thing that deters me from online shopping is the fact that I'm impatient and hate waiting for packages to arrive. At the same time, I hate letting "free money" with cash back
go to waste! There are several stores on Ebates
where you can get the best of both worlds.
Shortly before Christmas and the arrival of my second child, I was in search of a new camera. Being the frugal shopper that I am, I wanted to find the best value. Aside from product reviews and ratings, what I was looking for were discount codes
, free shipping offers, gift with purchases, rebates
, and (of course) the highest percentage of cash back
I settled on a camera that I found at Best Buy
that was on sale and came with a free memory card. Best Buy
only has 1% Cash Back
, but because Best Buy
offers in-store pickup I was able to purchase it online through Ebates
and have it in my hot little hand the very same day. I didn't have to pay shipping and I didn't have to wait anxiously for my package to arrive, yet I still earned cash back
For in-store pickup at Best Buy
just follow these easy steps:
1. Place your item in your cart and click the "Pick Up" button (this button is selectable only for products with store pickup availability).
2. Click "Select Store."
3. Enter your ZIP code or city/state and click "Find Nearest Stores."
4. Click "Select" next to the store with the item in stock where you'd like to pick up your purchase.
5. After you get through checkout, wait to receive two e-mails from Best Buy:Order confirmation e-mail
-- Verifies they've received your store pickup order.Store pickup notification e-mail
-- Confirms that your order is in stock and available for pickup. It will also walk you through the steps you'll take when you get to the store.
(This e-mail arrives within 45 minutes on average during store hours.)
There are four stores on Ebates that offer in-store pickup: Best Buy
, Home Depot
, and The Container Store
The next time you are shopping for a big ticket item like a new dishwasher or a lawnmower, don't forget about in-store pick up, and remember to shop with Ebates
! Don't lose out on all that cash back
