Well folks, this is it. Summer is almost over. The kids are all going back to school, the weather is getting cold (or, here in SF, it's warming up), and pretty soon we'll be into the dog days of Fall. For most, the unofficial mark of the end of summer is Labor Day, which is going to be celebrated in exactly a week. The one up side of bidding your shorts and flip flops a fond farewell is that Labor Day weekend provides many of us one little three-day sendoff party.

We all know about Sharpies. They've been around since 1964, born from the Sanford Ink Company, which has been perfecting ink and pens since the 1800s. For a number of folks, "sharpie" is one of those brand names that has come to replace an item name. There are even a handful of folks around the Ebates office who ask if you have a Sharpie, when they just need a marker. However, if there's one other thing that is synonymous with "sharpie" it's "inky bleed through". Anyone who has tried to write with a Sharpie, regardless of the size, on a piece of paper knows what I'm talking about: the blotchy black marks on the reverse side of your paper. It's unsightly and can damage desktops if not corrected.

Sharpie PenUntil now. Sharpie recently introduced The Sharpie Pen. Everything you love about the Sharpie name, in a small fine-tipped pen that won't bleed through your paper. I sit. I swoon. If you're a constant writer (like myself) or a doodler, this pen could be the best thing that's happened to you since the moleskine notebook. Check one out and earn extra cash back from OfficeMax during our Back to School sale!

Whether you use it for notes, shopping lists, or hangman, you'll love it's versatility and playfulness. You'll also love that it costs less than $25 to get this look.

3. For an aged look rub chalk over the surface. Remove any excess with a damp cloth.

4. Have Fun!

snow leopard coupons and cash backHey Mac users! Even though Apple said the newest version of its operating system -- Mac OSX Snow Leopard -- wouldn't be out until September, they went ahead and released it early to a handful of sweet retailers! If you're ready to upgrade to the newest, quickest OSX ever, you don't need to worry about searching around the internet all day for the lowest deal. Why? Because MacMall has it on sale for only $25 with 2.5% Cash Back until September 7th!

Feel free to watch Apple's welcome video here to get a better feel for how Snow Leopard will improve your computing as well!

Normally OSX Snow Leopard retails for $29.99, but for a limited time you can get it for $5 off with MacMall coupons. Getting such a useful update for so little is a no-brainer, so save today!

free shipping coupons
Ahh, it's good to be back to Free Shipping Friday. I don't know about you folks, but I know it felt like a little bit of my life was empty not having this wonderful collection of deals on the blog last week. This coming week, as you all know, will include the end of the month, which means there are plenty of deals to go around. By my rough estimate at the time of writing this, I believe there are almost 250 Free Shipping codes, so rather than trying to pare those down to a manageable list (I mean, come on, it would still have to be at least a hundred offers), I am just going to say click here and see the magnificent wonderland of free shipping that we have here at Ebates!

You can usually tell the overachievers on the first day of school: they have their textbooks, color-coded notebooks, and assortment of pens. While I cannot deny that I was that person in college, one thing I learned very quickly was to not buy a book until after the first day of class. You may drop the class, get wind of horror stories about a professor, or you may find a better deal online. Like at Barnes & Noble, where they have low prices on thousands of textbooks. Plus, You will get 8% Cash Back from Ebates and free in-store returns! You don't need to hassle with return shipping and waiting for a refund. Instead, you can return your unwanted merchandise to a store and quickly get your cash.

Cash Back on Mad Men Season 2 At Barnes & Noble
Just as important as studying hard is relaxing with some restorative leisure time. I spent many college weekends laying in bed watching DVDs of my favorite shows, which (for me) was time well spent. So while shopping for textbooks, be sure to shop for some DVD's at low prices. Pick up the highly acclaimed second season of Mad Men, now 50% off along with many more DVDs and get increased cash back from Ebates.

Blushed Tweed JacketFor most people, New Year's Day is a time of commitment and resolution. For me this occurs around September first, and is associated with the transition of Summer into Fall. The chillier nights and crisper winds make me a bit sad for the end of summer, but overjoyed for the fashion ahead. Having just received my J.Crew catalog in the mail, I'm awaiting cooler days when I can wrap myself in cozy sweaters, and revel in fabrics like cashmere and lambswool.

Undecided about my must-haves for this season, I know the one thing I always need is warmth. There's nothing worse than being cold, so if anything, I'll be stocking up on jackets and sweaters. A look I've seen in numerous magazines and websites is the hoodie paired with jacket look. Typically worn by men, this look is a tad more boyish, but with the right pieces can be sporty and feminine. J.Crew does this look right with their Blushed Tweed Jacket. Layered with a grey hooded sweater, this jacket has ruffled trim and cropped sleeves for a touch of sweet. For a touch of green, there's 1.5% Cash Back at J.Crew when you shop through Ebates. Here's to Fall!

buy.com coupons and cash back backpackLooking for something to protect that brand new laptop from all the rigors of your daily schedule? Swing by our Buy.com coupons page and look for our sweet deal on the Targus Sport Notebook Backpack! This sturdy backpack (available in either blue or black) will tote your notebook and some books, a pencil and a few utensils, and maybe even a water bottle strapped to its side as well. In the spirit of back to school season, the Targus Sport Backpack is on sale for 26% off at Buy.com, which brings various schooltime memories rushing back to me.

My first backpack wasn't the most impressive of satchels, but it was a sturdy, blue bag with two straps that held all my belongings day in and day out. In many ways, it was very similar to the Targus bag you see pictured to the right: dual front pockets, a whole mess of zippers, and a comfy handle that let me quickly snag it without slicing my hand. To this day, I still have my little blue bookbag taking up space in my closet, and given how sturdy the Targus Notebook Backpack looks, I have a feeling this little bag should last you just as long.

Of all the beauty items I obsess about on this blog, I rarely discuss hair products. I had completely given up on the prospect of having "good hair" and just accepted my fate of a tousled bun or a low pony tail style. That was until boredom got the best of me and I thought I would embark on my quest for good hair to pass the time. The only place to start my mission was the Ebates Health and Beauty category for a good deal and cash back.

Cash Back at Beauty.com
I was about to call off the entire project when I stumbled upon John Masters Organics Bourbon Vanilla & Tangerine hair texturizer at Beauty.com with 6% Cash Back from Ebates. I am easily seduced by interesting ingredients and always try to use eco-friendly products, so this was looking really good. A texturizer was just what I needed. Not only would it conceal my split ends and flyaways, but it would also add a little dimension to my lifeless hair. The product feels good, smells great and works well. And best of all its suitable for short and long hair and will polish a variety of styles.

As per the usual, when looking for a merchant for this week's "Did you know?" I just started running up and down our stores page, looking for a name I didn't recognize and that I couldn't automatically ascribe to a specific type of merchant. Sometimes I find duds that are too silly to pass up, but this time around, I stumbled upon a miniature gold mine. That mine goes by the name of JDHines.com and their business is batteries. They have all the obscure batteries and all sorts of other electrical wonders.

JDHines.com CouponsNeed a replacement battery for your cell phone? How about your laptop? Maybe your digital camera doesn't have the wonderful life that it once did? Well JDHines.com has you covered. Of course, you can still get multi-packs of your regular alkaline batteries for day-to-day use as well. There is one other product that JDHines.com carries that causes my heart to go all aflutter: space pens. That's right, much like the famed Seinfeld astronaut pen episode, you too can have a pen that writes upside down or under water. Already got one? They sell refills too!

See what you can find and earn 4% Cash Back while you're at it!

sixth avenue coupons and cash backIf you've picked up a fancy 7.1 home theater system lately, you're probably in need of some speakers to go along with it.

Barnes and Noble couponsAs someone who spent almost eight years pursuing higher education in Literature, one word synonymous with "Back to School" was "books." I remember my first semester as a master's student, walking up to the counter in the campus bookstore with two baskets filled to overflowing with novels. Some four hundred dollars later, I was informed by the clerk that I had bought more books in one fell swoop than he had ever seen before in his two year history of working there. Six months, and thirty-seven books later, I was back at it the next semester.

Now, had I been smart, I would have made my money work for me a little bit better, and picked up some of the more easily found titles at Barnes & Noble, who are currently offering 8% Cash Back on all purchases. Just think - in that one semester I would have gotten over $30 back! So let my mistake be your gain, and make the smart call that I didn't; buy your books through Ebates, earn cash back, and put that money towards even more glorious books!

Isabella BackpackI'm going to be completely biased and say The North Face makes the best sporting goods, period. While this may seem a bold statement, keep in mind I use the same tent my mother did twenty five years ago, and it's still in good working condition. My Denali jacket keeps me warm even on the chilliest of days, and my Jannu hiking boots have saved my ankles from roots, rocks, and anything else the trail decides to dish out. While it's always been rewarding to shop The North Face, thanks to Ebates Back To School Savings, I'll get 8% Cash Back and the comfort of knowing I bought the best of the best.

Speaking of the best, when it comes to shopping for back to school, The North Face carries the best in backpacks. Take the Isabella Backpack for example. Designed for a woman, this pack has a removable hipbelt (great for hiking), plenty of compartments, and at just $75, it's a small price to pay for something that will last for years. Perfect for the school year or the woods, this pack can stand the wear and tear of school, and mother nature. Available in six colors, this pack will please everyone's taste, and with free shipping over $125, you'll be pleased too!

tomtom cash back coupons go740A lot of people ask me about the best GPS for your buck, and I always say "that depends on what you're looking for." Sure, you can get an inexpensive GPS that'll get you from Point A to Point B with no real frills for $100, but if you're the car as much as I am, you'll want something that's a bit more reliable and sleek. Something that won't get in your way; saves you time; and is voice-operated to help keep your eyes on the road. That's why I think today's deal is an especially good one, as the TomTom GO740 LIVE 4.3" GPS navigation system is a great TomTom GPS deal at $299.99 from J&R -- a total savings of $70 plus 3% Cash Back!

And really, why would you skimp on your GPS when you can get it on sale? The TomTom GO740 LIVE 4.3" GPS is likely the last GPS you'll never need. With hands-free calling via BlueTooth, voice address input, and a gorgeous 4.3" LCD touchscreen, you'll never need to tinker around with other TomTom coupons again! You can find your favorite destinations with easy-to-read Point of Interest icons, and even avoid traffic by planning ahead with TomTom Live Services.

I'm going to just come out and say it: I don't like entering coupon codes. I don't necessarily even love the idea of coupons. See, I think that unless you're trying to have a private deal for a specific group of people, coupons should just be automatic. And it's that very reason that I appreciate American Eagle. See, I was cruising around Ebates a little this afternoon, and I noticed a handful of American Eagle coupons, but I noticed the four magic words above them: "no coupon code required". Those four words just warm my heart. Think about it: all the savings of a coupon without having to hunt and search for a code.

American-Eagle-Coupons.gifSo what can you save on? Really, it's just about everything. I couldn't help but be excited by the site of an American Eagle coupon for buy one, get one 50% off on all jeans and tees. As you all probably know by now, jeans and tees are basically 95% of my wardrobe, so the chance to save a little coin on them is a godsend. Plus, you can get free shipping on orders over $100. That's a one-two punch that is directly up my alley.

What will you use your American Eagle coupon for?

West Elm BeddingBedding is one of the home categories that tends to get overlooked until the sheets are tearing, or the dry cleaner insists the wine stain on your white duvet is there for life. Sheets, duvets, and the like, are easily put into a "I'll get to it someday" box and they often take a back seat to fun items like cashmere sweaters, boots, handbags, things you can show off. Not only does bedding age faster than any item hanging in your closet, it usually costs more too. Although it may seem the only way to find affordable bedding is to settle for cheap, itchy fabrics, this is not the case at West Elm.

With duvets starting at $69 and peaking at $169, finding the affordable bedding is easy. I found three luxurious duvets for just $99, and the above Organic Matelasse Duvet is one of many amazing deals at just $139. Sheets and pillows start at $29.99, and come in a wide variety of patterns and colors. Considering you'll get 3% Cash Back on all your purchases at West Elm, there's no reason not to shop for your bedding here.

The first time my parents visited me in college I thought my mother was going to faint. My dorm room was a bit eclectic: the curtains were plaid, the bedspread floral, and the floors bare. Surely I was brought up better than this, she lamented! Left to my own devices I "borrowed" some old sheets from the family linen closet (the ones where the pillowcases didn't match) and appropriated a long-forgotten comforter hidden on the top shelf. The window coverings...well they were the legacy of the former occupant. Money was tight and there weren't many options for budget-conscious college kids in those days.

Suite 109 SheetsBut like they say - we've come a long way baby! Thanks to Designer Linens Outlet, college-bound kids can go off to school in style at a savings of up to 80% off retail prices.

Save On Designer Watches With SmartBargains CouponsMy love affair with men's watches started in the least likely of places; a flea market (aptly titled Carnival Flea Market) in Del Ray, Florida. It was here, surrounded by hundreds of vendors, that I discovered a no-name, oversized, faux nautical men's watch, and fell in love. Over the years I've indulged this passion for men's watches with cheaper, more kitschy versions like the one mentioned, but the time has come to own a watch that is less costume-y, and more refined. Not wanting to spend a lot, I shopped at SmartBargains because until August 21st, I'll save an extra 25% off all jewelry and watches. No SmartBargains coupons needed, but you will get 4% Cash Back.

With top brands like Swiss Army, Movado, ESQ, and Raymond Weil, finding something high end is easy, but you may be surprised that finding some low in price is easy too. In fact the savings can go up to 73%, even on designer watches. This Movado Concerto Watch is 49% off, and has the masculinity I love, but is still sleek and feminine. Perfect with a tee shirt and jeans, or a little black dress, this watch is an investment piece without the heavy investment.

macmall macbook couponsLast week, we covered a slew of great laptops ranging from the HP TouchSmart, to the Dell Inspiron, and finally culminating in a sweet Lenovo deal. But doesn't it seem like there's something missing? Something a little more reliable...a little sweeter...a little more...Apple? If you think you can't afford such nice computer, think again. With MacMall coupons and limited time open box deals, you can get a MacBook for the long haul for only $890 -- that's over $100 off retail before your 2% Cash Back from Ebates!

As anyone who's had a Mac knows, Apple computers tend to "just work" without having to deal with all the hassles that come with a PC. It doesn't come with an obnoxious amount of extra programs or bloatware, require an antivirus/spyware subscription, or have any problems staying on for weeks on end in sleep mode. Even though I've had multiple PCs give out on me after a year or two of regular usage, my MacBook is still going strong after 3 years. Who knew I'd still be using it so much today?

Grab your new, refurbished MacBook on sale with MacMall coupons today. While Apple always demands a premium, it's rare to find such a huge price cut on anything that runs OSX. Get it before it's gone!

 6% Cash Back on Kiehls Marvelous Mineral MascaraKiehl's products have always been a huge part of my beauty product regime. Like most product junkies, I like to display all of my beauty items the way a collector would display their fine tuned assortment of snow globes. And Kiehl's bottles are always a part of my own fine-tuned collection of bottles and potions. Rarely though, have Kiehl's products made an appearance in my makeup bag the way that they appear so often in my face and body care regime. That is until they released their Marvelous Mineral Mascara.

The mascara is formulated with mineral pigments for color, Acacia Senegal (to thicken and lengthen lashes) and moisturizing Jojoba Oil. It is also paraben and fragrance free and will not irritate even the most sensitive eyes. It is available at Kiehl's for $16.50 with 6% Cash Back from Ebates. I have been wearing mine for the last few days and have noticed that my eyes are less sensitive and my lashes do feel more moisturized. It lengthens and separates, but yields more natural looking lashes, making it the perfect choice for a daytime makeup look.

The Eleanor Crossbody BagThe scene in Mary Poppins where Julie Andrews retrieves an entire room from her carpet bag is one that mirrors my life. Although I have yet to pull a Ficus out of my favorite handbag, it too is a bottomless pit. Items go missing on a daily basis, only to be discovered months later in one of its many compartments, and the phrase "so that's where you went" is repeated so often, I sound like a broken record. Despite my endearing love and devotion to slouchy oversized bags, it's time to leave the living room at home, and simplify.

Deals And Cash Back At Bluefly Everyone has a morning internet ritual; a daily check in with all your favorite websites is as important as a morning coffee to start the day off right. Mine includes the reading of various news and fashion sites and then a check in with whats new at my favorite online stores. One of these is always Bluefly. I have much appreciation for any site that updates their inventory regularly and at Bluefly it is always fashionable and on sale. Before I check out what's new at Bluefly, I always go to Ebates, to make sure I am not missing out on any money saving Bluefly coupons and to be sure that  when I pounce on a great deal, I am getting 4% Cash Back.

Ladies and gents, this merchant really threw me for a loop. When I saw the name "Out in Style" I immediately assumed I'd click through to a site filled with evening gowns, maybe tuxedo rentals, or something of that ilk. I couldn't have been more wrong.

Out in Style Inc CouponsOut in Style caters to adventurers, medics, first responders, campers, and other outdoorsy folks who have need for camouflage clothing, ballistics glasses, or Marine Corps-licensed workout DVDs. There isn't a dress or tie to be found, and I flippin' love it. You can find military boots, Zippo lighters, a whole array of EMT supplies, even a bike made by Smith & Wesson.

With all the obscure products on this site, it's easy to overlook the abundance of camping supplies they offer, or the sheer number of great products in their clearance section. So if you're one of the outdoorsy types, shopping at Out in Style will earn you a tasty 4% Cash Back.

Why limit your resourcefulness to survival training? Make your money work for you with Ebates!

Back to School coupons at Sears
As much as we all like to think about the prospect of shopping for new clothes or even a new computer for Back to School, the most commonly needed things are the basics: pencils, paper, notebooks, and the always important planner for writing down all those homework assignments.

Well folks, Sears is making that shopping a little softer on the ol' wallet by offering free ground shipping on all the basics as well as bigger ticket items like chairs, desks, and cleaning tools. So even if you don't have a munchkin (or college student) returning to school, you can still stock up on essentials like printer paper, ink, or sponges. You can also treat yourself to a nice sexy new desk chair for your home office or office. As someone who just bought a new home desk chair recently, let me tell you: a good chair can change your life.

So, stock up on Back to School supplies at Sears and earn 2% Cash Back along with free shipping on orders over $50.

Cast Iron Skillet From Sur La TableChefs know that when it comes to savory meals, their best bet is to use cast iron. Not only does cast iron distribute heat evenly, but it retains flavor and only gets better over time. What you may not know, is that cast iron offers a much safer alternative to traditional non-stick/ teflon pans. Why? Well new research shows the chemicals in teflon known as perfluorochemicals (PFC's for short) can be broken down at temperatures under 400 degrees, emitting toxic gases which goes, you guessed it, into your food. Cast iron pans (like this 15 inch skillet from Sur La Table) are simply the healthier and tastier way to go.

If you've never used a cast iron pan, you may be surprised at how much easier they are to clean. A well seasoned cast iron skillet only takes hot water and a light, non abrasive sponge to get clean. Lodge Logic Cast Iron Cookware comes pre-seasoned and ranges from skillets and griddles, to biscuit pans and dutch ovens. Available at Sur La Table, this green alternative starts at $8.95, and ranges up to a mere $49.95. Add to that 4% Cash Back, and you've got more green in your food, and in your wallet!

Oriental Trading Company CouponsNever one to throw a party on a whim, I thought I would be more adventurous and throw one in my apartment. I am equally motivated by my desire to spice things up and my need to preform revenge on my techno-blasting party animal of a new neighbor. Needless to say, I am seriously lacking in any real party supplies and I knew exactly where to go to get what I needed to throw a wall-rattling rager. Oriental Trading Company is the ultimate destination for party supplies for any occasion. When you shop there, through Ebates, you will get 3% Cash Back and Oriental Trading Company coupons for additional savings, because while you can't put a price on revenge, you can still save money in the process!

Not only does Oriental Trading Company have party supplies for everything from a luau to a baby shower, they have an extensive collection of craft supplies, toys, teaching supplies and crafts. I think I will throw a cowboy themed party in honor of Whiplash the cowboy monkey, a true icon and an Ebates employee favorite.

When I spend $49, I will get free shipping with no special Oriental Trading Company coupon code required.

Throw your own party and save with cash back from Ebates and Oriental Trading Company coupons!

We've all heard of exclusive, "members only" sites like Gilt.com, Hautelook, and RueLaLa. What these sites offer is access to private designer sales where the goods can be up to 70% off. While this is all fine and good, the one thing these sites don't offer is cash back (trust me I know, I used to shop them). So what's a fashion addict suppose to do when their love of designer goods interferes with their love of cash back? Why, shop Billion Dollar Babes of course!

Billion Dollar BabesBillion Dollar Babes is the only private sale site that has teamed up with Ebates, thus allowing you to find great deals and get 4% cash back on top designers like J Brand, Jimmy Choo, Kooba, Oliver Peoples, you get the idea.

staples coupons and cash backToday's laptop pick is dedicated to those looking for the best darn bang for the buck on a tight budget. And also for anyone who wouldn't mind a few freebies to go along with it. Because not only is the Compaq Presario CQ60 on sale for only $350 (that's $180 off!) right now, but with Staples Coupons, you can even get a free digital camera and photo tray as well! All that with 2% Cash Back at Ebates? Sign me up!

The Compaq Presario sports impressive specs for its tiny price. With a 2.0ghz dual-core Intel processor, 320GB hard drive, and 3GB of RAM, this computer has as much power under the hood as many computers twice its price. While it won't come with Dell's award winning customer service or a nifty tablet touchscreen, it will do exactly what you want it to do: get you on the internet, run word, and probably even play Bejeweled.

This extra-special pricing is only available until supplies run out, but before you order, don't forget to put in Staples coupon codes "10932" and "12757." They'll net you a free toy digital camera and a wooden photo tray; the latter of which will be just perfect for scoring extra points the next time you need a charming bed-in-breakfast platter. I know, I know. Just get the cash back now and thank me later.

Apothica couponsI won't lie to you, folks. When I first saw "Apothica" on the Ebates stores list, I thought it was a heavy metal band. Then I realized that would be crazy. So I just chalked it up to not having glasses on and the word actually being "Alopecia". Wrong again. The third time I thought maybe a site had started selling Alpacas. Strike three.

Rather, Apothica is a wonderful collection of products to help you look and feel your best. Featuring popular brand names like Perricone MD, Smashbox Cosmetics, bareminerals, and Pre de Provence, Apothica has something for all your health & beauty needs, plus they also offer 7% Cash Back. I know that I tend not to talk much about health & beauty because, frankly, I don't really know a lot about it. However, just from perusing Apothica for a little bit today, not only do I see brand names that even a novice like myself recognizes, I also see a lot of prices that look reasonable for what you're getting. Plus, right now they're featuring a Back to Basics sale, where you can save up to 20% on many name-brand products, and they offer free shipping over $49 which, as you know, always revs my motor.

On Thursday August 20th at 10 p.m., Project Runway returns for their sixth season. One of the biggest changes is that is will be airing on a new network: Lifetime. Despite Project Runway's new home, not much about the show will change except that now, instead of seeing incessant commercials promoting Kathy Griffin's reality series, we will see trailers for made-for-TV lifetime movies. I am happy for the reprieve.

Look forward to sixteen new designers (meet them and check out their virtual portfolios here) with Tim, Hedi, Nina and Michael Kors back to judge for the new season.

Bedrest Pillow from JCPenneyJust as a bride should have "something old, something new, something borrowed, something blue" so should a college student.

Something blue might be this Bedrest Pillow, and for the old? Well let's just say having peace and quite never gets old. Of course helping you earn the most cash back during this time of textbooks, new roommates, and class schedules is Ebates Back to School Special.

As a recently-graduated student with an MA in Literature, I did a lot of printing. In addition to about four hundred pages worth of .pdf files I needed for research, I think I printed all 130 pages of my thesis on at least four separate occasions. Lots of printing means lots of ink. Lots of ink means lots of money, because at the prices most retailers charge for ink, it's almost worth its weight in gold.

4inkjets coupons and cash backThat's why it's so exciting that right now we're in a "perfect storm of savings". Since 4inkjets has decided to take part in our Back to School promo, they are offering a staggering 19% Cash Back. There is also a great coupon code: use the 4inkjets coupon "EBATE99" through September 1st, and you will get an extra 10% off your order and free shipping, and you know how I feel about free shipping.

This is the perfect opportunity to stock up on ink for the coming school year, because you know you always need at least one spare cartridge around for those nights when you've been up writing until two a.m. so the stores are closed and you can't get ink before the paper is due. When that happens, you can say "Thanks, Ebates!"

I really can't describe how much more pleasurable I find the discussion of back to school sales now that I am no longer in school. Yes, it has been a while since my jaunts in academia but I can still conjure up the feelings of panic and sadness that used to start when back to school sales and specials would come around, signifying the end of Summer. If you still find Back to School sales to be a sad reminder of Summer's end, shop through Ebates to soothe the transition with increased cash back.

Kohls Increased Cash Back And Coupons
On the other hand, this could also be a joyful time for parents who are celebrating the end of Summer and life returning to a normal routine. In that case, celebrate back to school with Kohls and Ebates and get an increased 4% Cash Back and Kohls coupons to boot. Regardless of whether you are shopping for kids clothing for the new school year, for backpacks, lunchboxes, gym shoes, or for dorm essentials, Kohls is the place to be for all your back to school needs.

We've all seen a movie in which the lead woman sends herself flowers or candy to make it look like she's being pursued. The goal is to make herself seem unavailable (because all men love a chase), and thus more attractive to her love interest. While this may work in the romantic comedy genre, in real life it's just weird. This isn't to say I don't love buying myself flowers, because I do. I just don't attach cards that read "can't stop thinking of you".

1-800-Flowers CouponsWith that being said, when I do buy myself flowers for no other reason than wanting flowers, I shop at 1-800-Flowers. Between money saving 1-800-Flowers coupons, and other great deals, I'm able to spoil myself on a single gal's budget. Which, coincidentally, happens to be single as well. I don't despair though, because with bouquets like this 50 Blooms of Spray Roses selling for $19.99, the affordable options are endless. Like all purchases at 1-800-Flowers, you'll get 5% Cash Back from Ebates, and find other great deals.

So you see, there are discrete, acceptable ways to shower yourself with love. And if the cute guy who lives downstairs happens to notice, well then that's acceptable too.

Coclico Omi BootieWhy does the transition of Summer to Fall cause melancholy? Is it the reminder of colder days ahead? Or is it because, much like New Year's, we all pause and think of that which has passed? For me it's a little of both, but in terms of the past, my mind is instantly drawn to what I wore. My style over the past year has seen some improvements, some mishaps, and some don't-go-there moments, but overall I am pleased with the results. As for this upcoming Fall, I'm convinced my wardrobe endeavors will be easier on the wallet (and my style) thanks to 6% Cash Back at Shopbop.

A solid wardrobe is all about pieces that look equally chic regardless of what you're wearing, such as these Omi Booties by Coclico. Resting just below the ankle, this bootie offers the sleekness of a heel, paired with the structure of a boot. Now selling for 70% off, this shoe is an affordable way to create a cohesive wardrobe. A must for fashion slaves such as myself.

As a former teacher, I definitely miss having summers off. What I don't miss, however, is having to give up the complete and total freedom of summer every year when vacation came to an end and I knew I'd be back into the cycle of not sleeping, grading papers, writing lesson plans, and mainlining coffee all whilst trying to help shape tomorrow's young minds.

Anyone within earshot has probably heard me complaining about the lack of sun here in San Francisco. I am sure they are all very pleased to know that next week I will be departing my Ebates blogging post for a little vacay to Los Angeles where I will get more than my fill of sun. Not only does my upcoming trip require planning what clothes to pack, the increased exposure to the sun has me thinking about how to protect my skin. Like most people, I am good about protecting my face and body when I am in the sun but I often forget to protect my lips, which can lead to chapping, burns, and premature aging. Cash Back at SephoraThe perfect product to protect my pout from the sun and give me the same look and feel of a gloss is Fresh Rosé Tinted Lip Treatment SPF 15 for $22.50 with 4% Cash Back at Sephora. A lightly tinted spinoff of the perennial favorite Sugar Lip treatment, it goes on smooth leaving the perfect hint of rose hue with sun protection.

radioshack coupons and cash backWhile Ebates has a store for practically every hobby, there's something I've always loved about RadioShack. Whether it's the customizable RC cars, transistor radio parts, or just good ol' fashioned cables, RadioShack has always been my go-to place to look for any random electrical doodad. That's why when I needed to learn how to solder, I knew I had to head straight to The Shack.

Soldering has never really much appealed to me. That is, until I started getting into guitars. After developing an undying love for my shiny new Telecaster, I started looking towards my busted up Stratocaster to give it a little more edge. "Why not swap out the pickups?" I thought. "It can't be harder than plugging in a few wires, right?"

Wrong. In order to change out guitar pickups, you have to learn how to solder -- a magical art I knew nothing about. Thankfully, RadioShack came through in the clutch with an inexpensive soldering iron kit that included everything I needed to get the job done. Thanks, RadioShack!

Hanging Vases From CB2While I can testify it's easier to change your shoes than your interiors, that's not to say the latter isn't just as important for sound mental health. The same as a new wardrobe inspires change, so do new interiors. To most people, this means new throw pillows, curtains, or if they're really crazy, new paint. I say skip that and take a cue from your ceiling. Ceilings are one of the greatest and most untapped resources for decor. They're perfect for hanging planters, vintage chandeliers, and these Hanging Vases from CB2. Don't think so? Check out the many ways to use these in your home here.

At $4.95 a piece, this is an affordable way to change the theme of any room. For an airy vibe, try water and a single stem flower. For a woodsy feeling, the use of sand (particularly black sand) can make a great contrast against birch branches, or fresh picked leaves. Whatever you decide, you'll get 3% Cash Back at CB2, and a fresh new look. Enjoy!

They say that chivalry is dead. Personally speaking, I admit that it has, in fact, been a while since I received a bouquet of fresh cut flowers. And while I could blame that on the economy, there is truly no excuse for not sending flowers when you have cash back and ProFlowers coupons. So instead of letting another flower-less day go by, I have decided to seize the day (and some deals) and take advantage of all the ProFlowers coupons Ebates has to offer and get myself some flowers.

Finally, something thin around your house that doesn't involve health food or exercise! (not that there's anything wrong with those) But what I'm talking about is the Wafer Thin Stereo from Brookstone.

Wafer Thin Stereo from BrookstoneIf you, like most people, listen to most of your music on an iPod, chances are you have an iPod player that you use. The main issue I've found with many of them is that they are small and thin sounding or else they are bulky and you have no place to put them. This system solves both those problems by pairing a thin design control unit with NTX flat-panel speakers, which are just inches deep. There is also a satellite sub-woofer, and the trio of speakers all connect wirelessly (or so it appears) so you can put the speakers almost anywhere.

The downside? The system costs $349 and makes no promises about working with an iPhone.

The upside? You'll earn almost $21 thanks to 6% Cash Back at Ebates.

Fill your home with music on a stereo from one of our Electronics & Photo merchants!

J&R coupons on headphonesOver the past year, I've chronicled my journey for a decent pair of iPhone earbuds. I started out with the pack-in Apple earbuds, which turned out to be a bit too tinny, and eventually moved onto the Maximo iP-2 headphones that did an admirable job at bringing the bump until they broke for the third(!) time.

Thus brings my search to the V-Moda Vibe Neros that many love and loathe. Love, because their sound quality is outstanding. Loathe, because they're $120 and older versions fell apart after a few months of regular usage. However, the Nero are new, and who knows. They just might work!

So how are they so far? Grand! The V-Moda's pack a detailed and deeper sound that is noticeably clearer than any other earbud I've tried. While I'll have to wait a few weeks to comment on the build quality, I will say that they are very comfortable and sport a fancy leather satchel for storage. If you're serious about your earbuds get them (and J&R Coupons) today!
