Do you have 2013 fitness goals? I sure do. In order to keep myself focused I am sure to keep around a handful of excellent products to keep my workouts fun, and safe. Best part is that I can earn Cash Back on all of my purchases :)

2. A lightweight hoodie is great because it can be layered easily

3. A bright, fun pair of running shoes always motivates me to work out

4. Cushioned and absorbent socks are incredibly necessary

5. Stay hydrated with a new water bottle

6. Less cumbersome then an iPhone or iPod, I strongly recommend a little Shuffle for your workout

Halloween is a fun and exciting time of the year for both pets and pet parents! At Petco, not only do we like to dress ourselves in costumes, but we love to dress up our furry friends!



From superheroes and pirates to hula girls and mermaids, we have everything to outfit your dog and even your cat! Not into the full costume? No worries, we have cute accessories that can transform your pet into a clown, angel, devil and more! And if your pet simply refuses to dress up, we also carry fun Halloween themed collars, pet tags and harnesses that can be used year round. At 20% off on, you can't go wrong!


Although Halloween is fun and exciting, it can also be a stressful time for your pets with all the noise and commotion. Here are some important things to keep in mind during the Halloween season:

  • Don't share Halloween candy with your pets. Chocolate is toxic to dogs and cats, and other candy could damage their teeth and overall health. Make sure when the kids come back from trick-or-treating, they put their stash out of paws' reach.
  • Keep your pets at a safe distance from trick-or-treaters. Having a steady stream of strangers on their turf might make pets anxious and unpredictable.
  • As you open and close the door to dish out candy, keep an eye on your dog or cat. Pets can easily slip away in all the commotion and end up lost.
  • If you put a costume on your pet, make sure that nothing about the costume could interfere with his breathing or ability to see. Also, check for and remove      any parts of the costume that could tangle or choke him. And keep on eye on him the whole time - never leave an outfitted pet alone.
  • If you take your dog trick-or-treating with you, make sure that he is on a leash and has the proper ID tags on his collar. You don't want to have to go looking for him, but if he does get lost, tags with your name and phone number make it much more likely that you'll get him back.
  • If you have a black cat, or even a dark gray one, keep close tabs on him during the days and weeks leading up to Halloween. If possible, keep him indoors to prevent him from being the victim of a holiday prank.

Folks will always have the desire to explore new places and experience new cultures, but with the economy still in flux, travelers will continue to need great deals as well. To help travelers find the best prices and get the most 'bang' for their travel buck, the experts at will be posting a series of can't-miss tips in the coming weeks. To kick things off, this week's list will focus on airfare advice. 

Airfare continues to be a tough subject for many travelers and their wallets, and that's no surprise as fares continue to remain high. But if you follow a few easy, insider tricks, you could potentially net hundreds of dollars in savings. 


How to save on airfare:

1. Travelers should book early. The airlines typically follow a 21-day rule, where prices will start rising 21 days and closer to the departure date. So, try to book 3 weeks or more out. To save even more, try to purchase your tickets on a Tuesday, Wednesday or Saturday, which is when prices tend to be the lowest.  Choosing to fly on those days will save you a bundle as well.

2. To get bigger savings, travelers should look to low-cost cost carriers and track where they are launching new routes. When low-cost carriers like Jet Blue or Southwest enter a new market, it prompts tough pricing competition, which results in great fare sales.

3. Shop discount sites like Hotwire. These sites will get excess inventory from the airlines and will work with suppliers to sell seats at highly discounted rates, sometimes up to 45% off on last-minute airfares.

4. Check alternative airports. Try flying into smaller, nearby airports and then drive to the final destination to save money. For example, Oakland instead of San Francisco.  The money folks can save by flying into alternative airports can easily make up for any extra gas costs, and the ease and convenience might prove valuable as well. 

Now that we've covered airfare savings tips, next week we will provide tips on how to save on hotels.

In case you weren't aware - last Friday was International Women's Day -  a day celebrating the achievements and struggles of women all over the world, throughout history since the 1900′s.   Yay Women!  For those of you who spend your days battling in different trenches - ones filled with dirty laundry, grocery lists and sticky children - you may feel you haven't contributed much to the archive of Great Women's Achievements. I say NOT TRUE!

I  want to share something with you that I wrote a few years ago.    I had a regular blog then, before I started writing for Time 2 $ave Workshops, and I'd just come home from my first coupon class (I was in the audience).  "Extreme couponing seminars" were quick becoming the new Tupperware Party in my town and I had to see what the buzz was about.  I needed a whole lot of convincing - because couponing seemed to be too much work for $.50 Off here and there.  On the other hand, this is the girl who collects dryer lint, empty egg cartons and candle remnants for months to make campfire starters...  so maybe I should stop calling the kettle black and just get my pot-self to a class!  I did...

I walked in about 10 minutes late, as usual.  The room was packed full with women of all ages.  I slid into a seat at the end of a table and glanced down at the packet of papers in front of me.  It correlated to the powerpoint presentation being given at the front of the room- it was a list of Coupon Lingo with definitions...  2 PAGES LONG.

What the What??  Somewhat daunting, no?

I looked around at rows and rows of housewives who had their eyes glued to the instructors, hanging on their every word.   This wasn't what I had expected.  An exciting atmosphere of subversion hung in the air- it felt as if we were being initiated into some sort of underground, anti-establishment movement. We were joining the sisterhood of frugal housewives.  We fly just under the radar, collect coupons using our various clandestine methods, speak our secret codes to one another, and stockpile necessities in our own homes.  A veritable army of hunters and gatherers.

It seemed purposeful and smart - made one feel prepared in the midst of uncertain economic times.  I still can't manage to put anything into a savings account, or invest in a 401k, or even afford health insurance, but I've got extra food and supplies in the basement for whatever hard weeks may come. It's a practical security.  And it comes cheap.

I LOVE that this movement is a serious thing- that there are stockpile price lists, efficiency guides for storage and usage, coupon "lingo" - all backed up by very real need.  I love that even though it's time consuming, it is of real value - value on par with a part-time job. I might not be able to make my family recession-proof, but I can do my part to ease the strain.


So sister - pat yourself on the back and wear your Frugal banner with pride.  Whether you're contributing to your family, or blessing someone else's, by putting in all the time and effort to be an extremely smart shopper - you are making an undeniable difference!  Well done!!

On that note - won't you join me in celebrating women everywhere by singing one of the best Girl-Power-Songs EVER....

Hey everyone!  It's Melea from Decorating a home can be daunting and can end up costing a lot of money! But just like everything else, there is always a way to save. :)


Here are a few tips to help you save on everything from big furniture purchases to small home accents:

1- Shop on Holidays.  Major furniture stores always do promotions on and around Holidays.  They actually use even the smallest Holidays to their advantage. And we can too.  Watch for their ads in your mailbox and many times you will see coupons to use on top of the sale price. 

2- Shop at Scratch and Dent Sales.  You would be surprised what big box stores consider "scratch and dent", yet what you can barely even notice. We purchased an entertainment stand  from a scratch and dent store for $19 a few years ago.  It was gorgeous, normally a few hundred dollars and no one ever noticed the flaw.  Actually, everyone just commented on how beautiful it was. 

3- Shop Garage Sales.  Oh the wonderful things you can find at Garage Sales!  This will obviously take a little more work and digging on your part.  But there are some definite treasures that people want to get rid of.  Just last week, my mother-in-law (an avid Garage Sale Shopper) picked up numerous bedroom dressers for $5.00!!  They were in good condition and the sellers just needed to move asap and wanted everything gone.  Now, that's a deal.

4- For everything from Furniture to Mirrors and Tabletop Decor, shop the Daily Deal sites.  I have a few personal favorites that have helped me decorate our own home.  One Kings Lane, Rue La La, Zulily and Home Sav.  All of which have been 100% reliable and are what other Freebies2Deals readers are fans of too! 

5- Last of all, don't be afraid of a little email. If you don't want your own inbox full of promotions from companies, create a free email address for just that.  Sign up for your favorite store's email newsletters so you can get the heads up when online discounts and in-store discounts are coming.  Also, "like" those Home Decor companies on Facebook.  Promos are given out all of the time exclusively for their followers.  And, of course, make sure you are watching Ebates for extra cash back on top of their already hot offers!

Head over to for even more money saving tips from the wonderful Melea!

Hey ya'll!  It's Kasey from Time 2 $ave!  I'm so excited to stop by today to share a message that is near and dear to our hearts.

First, you might be surprised to hear -we don't LOVE COUPONS. We don't wake up every morning excited to cut up coupons or jump on every deal that we can find. Simply put - couponing just happened to be the tool that brought hope to our family's finances. Most importantly it has afforded us the incredible opportunity to give into the lives of others in ways we never imagined.

When I say giving I'm not referring to giving just at Thanksgiving or Christmas.  You see, as we learned how to coupon effectively a light came on one day.  Every week there are items that are free or nearly free at grocery stores and drug stores.  What if we started looking for items each week specifically to give?  We began to look beyond our own family's needs for opportunities to bless others.  


Now, we have become purposeful givers.  It has become a lifestyle that is just as important to us as shopping for our family's needs.  

To give you an idea how much of an influence you can be I've listed items just from yesterday's posts that would make great donation items.

• Alpo Dog Food - $0.52 ea
• Johnson's baby Wash or Lotion - $0.09

I'm Erin Chase, also known as The $5 Dinner Mom.

I have a little problem. I can not make a meal that costs more than $5, and I want to show you how to make a meal for your family that doesn't cost more than 5 bucks!Making family dinners can be difficult enough, but doing so on a budget can be even more challenging!

I started on August 22, 2008, to inspire and equip others to cut your grocery bill in half. At the website and in both of my cookbooks, you'll learn all about the method to the $5 Dinners madness. My hope and desire is that you can start spending less of your hard earned dollars at the grocery store.On the website, you'll find meal planning advice and strategies, couponing tips and tricks, ways to spend less time in the kitchen preparing all of your favorite meals, and daily recipes that are simple to prepare and easy on the wallet.

Today celebrates the 3 birthday of, and because I love y'all so much...I'll be giving away a cookbook every single hour of today! And also, I'm thrilled to be throwing a little party over here with the Ebates family, as we celebrate the birthday with more giveaways!

Christmas ShoppingIt's beginning to look a lot like....THE HOLIDAYS!  Does hearing that phrase scare you? Does it send you into a panic over your holiday gift shopping list?  At one point in my life this was the case for me. As I have become more frugal, however, holiday shopping has become a bit exciting. I'm here to help you stay calm, earn cash back, and most of all shop smart!

Here are my tips for a frugal Holiday Season

1. Keep An Open Mind - One of my biggest pieces of advice for holiday shopping, is to shop throughout the year. This is especially true during the tail end of the holiday season, when retailers want to get merchandise out of their store.

Sales2. Shop With Help - By shopping sales and using coupons, you're able to combine double savings and walk away with rock bottom prices. 

3. Know Your Store - Ask retailers if the price dips below what you pay, what is their policy on this situation? Many stores have a 30 day policy allowing you to get the lowest price of the month. Equally important is to know the average price. If you are looking for a gaming system, research what it retails for. This will let you know when you see a great price.

CyberMonday4. Shop From Home - The best time of the season to shop is right after Thanksgiving and just into the start of December. The incredible sales on Black Friday and Cyber Monday means you can score amazing deals and get cash back from Ebates! I personally appreciate shopping online and not having to leave my home or fight the crowds.

5. Shop With A Purpose - Most importantly, during the holiday season shop smart. Make a list of who you need to buy for, and set a price for each of those individuals. Holiday shopping is not a time to break the bank, but rather a time to celebrate and enjoy the ones you love.

Happy shopping!

No need to introduce today's guest blogger, her name says it all. Fashion for less? Yes please!

Hi Ebates Members,

I'm Jennifer from and I am so excited to be guest posting for Ebates! If you've ever visited my blog before then you know that I am ADDICTED to recreating celebrity looks using pieces that are far more affordable than designer options. In addition to getting the look for less, you can save even more by getting paid to shop these items through Ebates.

My challenge for this post: recreate Jessica Simpson's look using items that are all under $100 and from stores that are all part of Ebates. Mission accomplished and to be honest, I think I actually prefer the "look for less"! What do you think? Would you wear Jessica's look for less? 

Let, your personal shopper, put the looks together for you and then shop through eBates to get paid for dressing as though you can afford those designer price tags.

Happy Shopping,
Jennifer - The Looks For Less

Get Jessica's Look For Less

Romeo Fleece Jacket from Nordstrom $68

Burnout Tank from American Eagle $9.95

G By Guess Denim Skinny Denim $49.50

Bangle Set from Charlotte Russe $4

For a lot of women (me included) the letter "B" takes on a sinister meaning when summer rolls around. Beach, bathing suit, and bikini...well you get the picture! If you're not in tiptop shape before your foot hits the water, then your plans for fun in the sun could be a wash out.

How do you make sure you're ready for the swimsuit season? For starters, a healthy diet plan is a must. has a downloadable FREE High Protein Meal Plan Manual that guides you in customizing a routine for your individual weight loss goals. Not only is a great source for weight loss food and tips for success, they're offering either $10 OFF orders of $50+ (through July 31st) with promo code LS10OFF50 or FREE SHIPPING on orders of $75+ until the end of the year.

As all of us diehard diet divas know, eating nutritious, healthy food is only part of the battle. Exercise plays a big part and the warm weather give you the chance to chill out while eliminating unwanted calories. Since it's not healthy to run in high temperatures, take the plunge in the nearest pool for some water walking and aerobics's fun (a whole lot cooler) and you could be burning 400-800 calories! Here are some tips on how to get started:

  • Warm up by walking the perimeter of the pool, then jogging in it.
  • In the shallow end, do 60 seconds each of walking lunges, squats, and leg lifts to the front side and back, holding on to the edge.
  • If you use an aqua free weight or flow tie it increase the feeling of resistance & will add the perfect intensity to your workout.
  • Finish working the lower body with flutter kicks holding the edge or using a kickboard.
  • Finally, submerge to the neck and do chest presses, reverse flies, bicep curls, and arm circles to work the upper body.

Hey guys - this work out is good for you too and your own personal meal plan will help you get buff for your romps on the beach.

As you can tell, I have lots (and I mean LOTS) of personal experience in the world of diet dining. That's why I'm glad there are now so many great choices for healthy, high protein foods that actually taste good and are good for you. What's your "red light" food(s)? Check out these awesome shakes, smoothies and puddings that are sure to satisfy your sweet tooth without packing on the pounds. And if your downfall is the in between meal munchies, I've found a great selection of healthy snacks.

Don't let rainy days get your down. Just follow the Iso-Towel 5-minute workout will speed up your metabolism by combining fat burning, strength and stretch and can be done anytime or anywhere with just a towel!

Good luck...keep cool and stay slim this summer with!

The same is true for haircare. Summer is the time to invest in frizz fighting products and a deep conditioner to combat damage from water, heat and the sun. Also, it is crucial to protect skin with the right sunblock, regardless of how much time you will spend outside. Check out this Video Blog straight from EbatesTV for ideas on everyday sunscreen options and heavy-duty formulas for outdoor activities.

Magazines.comAs a blogger I tend to get most of my information online. This includes everything from breaking news to fashion trends. As a creature of the online world, it's easiest for me to seek out what I need to know on the internet. But come Summer, I am typically (hopefully) away from my computer much more frequently and this is when I tend to consume many more magazines, rather than visit the online site. Thus, with Summer right around the corner, I need to manage my subscriptions to my favorite magazines and stock up for lazy, sunny days.  I will shop at through Ebates and get a hefty 21.0% Cash Back, up to 90% off and an additional $5 off orders with code: springmags.

At, I will find all of my favorite fashion publications like Elle and Vogue, while also shopping for essential reads like Women's Health and Shape. Good news for me, right now, they are offering a subscription to Elle and Women's Health for 74% off and just $25 for both! Shop now for your favorite magazines specially priced and with double-digit cash back!

Also, magazines make a great gift for mom, so shop best-selling titles and give her a gift she will enjoy all year.

Stock up on summer reads and cash back in our Books and Magazines Category.

I know a lot of the time people ask us "How can I save the most money possible when I shop?" Personally speaking, while shopping through Ebates should be a given, I can't over-stress the importance of using coupons. Whether you are shopping online or in stores and especially restaurants, having a coupon that will help get a little extra money off your bill is essential. That's why we are happy to offer cash back on a great money-saving opportunity: the Entertainment Book.

Entertainment BookFor those of you who aren't familiar, the Entertainment Book is a collection of coupons for greater metropolitan areas usually, where one can use coupons on a wide range of things, from restaurants to travel, museums, and other attractions all around the area. While the coupons expire at the end of November as memory serves, you'll find that there are almost more deals than you can tackle in a year. I know in the past I've used mine on car rentals, dinners, sporting event tickets, and much more, yet no matter how many coupons I feel like I've used, there still seems to be half a book when the end of the year rolls around.

Best part of all is, at the moment, since we have crept into the month of March, the books are currently just $17.50 with 25.0% Cash Back. It's scary but true, for just over $10 you can get an entire book of coupons for businesses in your area, shipped free!

Around this time every year my skin wages an outright revolt against the cold temperatures. My already-sensitive skin seems to become a hundred times more sensitive during the Winter months, and I always find myself desperate to calm my skin without having to overhaul my entire skincare and makeup regimen.

I have only heard good things about Clinique Redness Solutions Instant Relief Mineral Powder ($32.50 with 4.0% Cash Back). Formulated to instantly reduce redness, this "unique mineral formula" cools irritated skin on contact and keeps redness at bay for hours. This sounds like just what I need to calm my red, blotchy, and sensitive skin and make it look better in no time.

twitter-logo.jpgLet's face it, everyone is on Twitter, and now Twitter has become one of the hottest spots to find the latest deals, coupons, and one-day sales this holiday season. Here are five ways you can use Twitter to help you save big this holiday season.

1) Make a List, Check it Twice. Thanks to Twitter's new list-making feature, you can follow all of your favorite brands, retailers and cash-back sites. It's an easy way to stay on top of the latest deals of interest to you. I posted a list recently of 15 to follow for the best holiday deals, including @Ebates (of course!) and @ToysRUs.

2) Fetch Money-Saving Coupons. You'll find that your favorite retailers and brands will tweet coupons from time to time, but it's a matter of waiting for those coupon tweets. Or, you can ask @CouponBot to find coupons for you. Just tweet the store name to @CouponBot and it will fetch coupons for you within seconds. Just one reminder: non-Ebates coupons can sometimes negate your cash back.

3) Find Great Deals in Every Category. One site I love is CheapTweet because it scours Twitter conversations for the best deals and then posts them by category, such as fashion & beauty, tech, entertainment & travel, food and more. The CheapTweet community then votes on the best deals so the truly great ones bubble to the top of each category.

4) Search the Best Deals. Another way to find the best deals is by using the Search box on your Twitter profile page. Just type in what you have your eye on along with the word "deal" or "coupon" to pull up relevant tweets (and possible fantastic deals!).

5) Just Ask. Sometimes you can get a deal or a coupon code by simply asking. Send out a quick tweet to @BestBuy, for example, to see if there are any hidden bargains or promo codes they can share with you. It never hurts to ask.

Have a question about using Twitter to score hot holiday deals? Just leave a comment or reach out to me directly at my blog, Coupon Cravings.

Skip The Mall. Earn Cash Back With Ebates!Well folks, it's officially November. If you're still in disbelief that both the end of the year and the holidays are around the corner, join the club. You see I'm a procrastinator. Someone who shops at the last minute (I'm talking airports while waiting for my flight) and usually when I'm strapped for cash. This year I'm committed to having both ample cash in my pocket and all my presents purchased before they announce my flight is boarding. This is easily achieved now that November is Cash Back Month, during which our top merchants will have increased or doubled (some more than doubled) cash back. Aside from increased cash back, there are also plenty of sales, deals, and special coupons. So stay tuned and relax! It's the most wonderful time of the year!

Here are just a few stores stores with increased cash back. See more here.

HSN                 Was 3.0% Cash Back           Now 6.0% Cash Back

October 29, 2009

As most of you are probably aware, one of the main facets of my job is just spending time on Ebates, searching for new sales and coupons to bring to your attention. Generally speaking, it isn't terribly interesting outside of the pure thrill of finding that great bargain and bringing it to all of you. But then again, some days, you get a little thrill from time to time when you are out searching. Today was one of those times.

So I was clicking around, just like any other day, and I happened across a coupon from a book merchant, Alibris. I've known the site - being a literature nerd, I tend to know most all book merchants rather well. But this coupon code jumped out at me, not just because of the interesting figure, but because of the code itself. From now through Halloween, if you enter coupon code "GANDALF" you can save $4 on any purchase $40 or more. I thought this was a wonderful idea and a great code, so I went to the Alibris coupons page. What did I discover? A whole slew of coupons, all connected to characters from Lord of the Rings, all for a different dollar amount. They were all there - FRODO, SAMWISE, GALADRIEL, even SAURON.

FrodoThese are the small joys in life, when I find a fun merchant who comes up with a great set of coupons with thematic names. Of course it doesn't hurt that you also get 3.0% Cash Back. I am almost tempted to spend the next few minutes entering in other Lord of the Rings words just to see what happens. Maybe if I type in Gollum, I'll get a free ring...

What coupons will you find? Just look at the Ebates coupon page to find them all!

Electroincs Expo Coupons and Cash BackA little while back, I received an email about Electronics Expo being added to Ebates. I recognized the name, but only insofar as the two words looked good with one another.

But wait... weren't they the place I got something for my old Canon PowerShot a while back? And Indeed I had. I finally remembered picked up a little camera bag that was on sale with an Electronics Expo coupon I had found a while back. Everything had gone just fine; my bag was promptly shipped, it was brand new as advertised, and it came within a week. Really, what more do you need than that?

Now, they're on Ebates, which means you can earn 2% Cash Back on yet another great place to check for low prices on the internet. The more the merrier, I always say! We've got a bunch of coupons too (including a gaggle of dollar-off codes that are good for practically any order), so give 'em a look next time you're in the mood for a deal!

Sears CouponsAs not only an employee but also a shopper of Ebates, I have grown especially fond of coupons. There is nothing more satisfying than getting a great deal, cash back and then adding in a coupon for additional savings. It is for this exact reason that I always check out Sears, because not only do they have a selection that rivals most merchants (from drill bits to diamonds and everything in between) there are a ton of Sears Coupons and 2% Cash Back from Ebates.

To give you some idea just what I mean when I say that we have a ton of Sears coupons, we currently have over eighty coupons offering savings on outdoor goods, tools, tires, apparel, and more. Find Sears coupons for discounts, special sales, online only offers, and even money off coupons. One of the best offers is an online exclusive for an extra $15-$20 off lawn and garden orders of $150 or more. So you can shop already reduced lawn and garden items and take an extra $20 off and get cash back too!

Shop all the Sears coupons or coupons for all Ebates merchants.

Banana Republic has always been a leading destination for chic-yet-affordable fashion and accessories. When I am on the hunt for the perfect necklace to pair with a new top, or a flashy cocktail ring to update last season's little black dress, I head over to Ebates, then to Banana Republic and always find just what I need to spice up my wardrobe. And, with 2% Cash Back from Ebates and Banana Republic coupons, their affordable jewelery is even more affordable!

Banana Republic Coupons
I am currently lusting for this Multi-Chain Necklace that is reasonably priced at $79.50. This piece will add a little bit of edge to even the most basic ensembles and more importantly will not break the bank either.

eLuxury CouponsAs a young buck, I spent most of my time saving my money just to blow it on some kind of designer piece; be it a handbag, top, dress, or shoes. These days, I save with the same efficiency but for more practical things like a roof over my head or sustenance. While I do get warm and fuzzy feelings about being practical, nothing replaces the excitement from buying something I really want. When I am fiending for something new and fabulous, I always check out eLUXURY, where I can get 1% Cash Back from Ebates and access to eLUXURY Coupons and special discounts.

Shop eLUXURY for designer labels like Louis Vuitton and Fendi and contemporary fashions from Rag & Bone, Elizabeth and James, Marc by Marc Jacobs and many more.

sears couponsHere at Ebates, the Daily Doubles are starting to pick back up, so that means you now have even more opportunities to earn cash back on your purchases at some of our most popular stores. And if there is one store that is consistently in our list of "most popular stores" it would be Sears.

I don't know where to begin when discussing all the great deals that can be found at Sears; from swimwear to power tools, they really have it all! And today, they have all their great products with 4% Cash Back - that's a great one-two punch of savings! But if that weren't enough, you can check out the Sears page at Ebates for a complete listing of Sears Coupons from all their various departments. There are even some free shipping deals, and you know what a soft spot I have for those.

But hurry, starting at midnight tonight, Sears will be back down to 2% Cash Back, so if you really want to save money, you'd better act fast!

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 from Ebates 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 through Ebates.

Best Buy CouponsI 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, Walmart, 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!

After being on a shopping diet for a few weeks, I have emerged more eager than ever to make some serious progress on "Operation Wardrobe Rejuvenation."

Shopbop Coupons Enter the Shopbop Friends and Family sale, where you can take 25% off your entire order with Shopbop coupon code INTHEFAMILY25 at checkout. I took advantage of the instant savings and bought a couple of things I had been lusting after and saved over $140 on my entire order. One purchase was this Rag & Bone Wide Stripe Top for $175, with 6% Cash Back. It will be easy to throw this on with a cute pair of jeans and a flat sandal for a look that its both understated and incredibly chic.

Every woman has a weakness. For the purpose of this blog, my weakness (among many other things) is t-shirts. Lots, and lots of t-shirts. But even a t-shirt collector like myself can get tired of the basics and seek something just as comfortable but with a little pizazz. Look no further than the spring collection at JCrew where you can find an array of t-shirts and other items too that are ready to inspire even the most seasoned shopper. Shop through Ebates, get 1% Cash Back and coupons on whatever it is you love to buy at JCrew.

JCrew CouponsI am going to get this Tissue chiffon-trim tee, now on sale for just $29.50. Although there are no JCrew Coupons available to me at the moment, I am still saving when I shop for t-shirts like this one, which is on sale. Plus, I'll earn cash back through Ebates on all of my purchase. So when a girl can have cash back, a good deal and something she loves, it's hard not to get a little weak in the knees.

Ebay Coupons And DiscountsI've developed an obsession with shopping for engagement rings. While this may not seem strange on the surface, you should know that I don't want a wedding and I am not sure if I even want to get married. But, I do find great pleasure in browsing engagement rings that I may never receive. Why am I telling you this random, possibly embarrassing fact? Because it's my job to spread the good word, and the the good word is "Ebay with 3% Cash Back, discounts, and coupons." Shopping on Ebay through Ebates has opened up a whole new wold of fantasy engagement ring shopping. Not only do I have access to every style of ring possible both new and antique, I can also get the best price, special Ebay coupons with discounts, and I'll get cash back too (for when I am ready to take the plunge).

So if you have any fantasy shopping behavior or if you have a special someone that you would like to surprise with something sparkly, hit up Ebates and Ebay.

sears coupons.JPGI don't think I'm surprising anyone by saying that Sears provides amazing deals on a huge range of products from home and decor items to appliances, clothing, and even automotive supplies.  Chances are you've all been to their stores and you've all seen this selection firsthand. However, what you may not know is that Ebates has an abundance of Sears Coupons to help you get what you want for even less.

We already offer 2% cash back on all purchases at Sears, so why not save even more? Apply some Sears Coupons to save extra money on your purchases, like this coupon for an extra 10% off the sale price of appliances plus free delivery, or this coupon for $90 off a Panasonic SD flash memory camcorder.

So remember, shop through Ebates, earn cash back, and use Sears Coupons for the ultimate savings!

Easter is April 12 this year and my friend over at the Wild Planet Toy Store kindly agreed to give fellow Ebates shoppers a special discount on toy purchases.

It's simple - just go to the Wild Planet Toy Store, pick out a bunch of stuff that you wish had been around when you were a kid, then after checkout, enter EBATES in the Coupon Code field on the payment screen.

Click "Redeem It" and you'll receive 3% off the price of your purchase. This 3% discount is offered in addition to the 3% cash back you'll get in your Ebates big fat check.

Extra bonus: the discounts count toward the purchase of bundles, including those that are already discounted up to 15%. The only thing you can't use the additional discount for is the purchase of gift certificates (but you probably knew that already).

For those with toy buying needs beyond Easter, my buddy said he'd extend the discount and honor the code for all purchases made between now and (including) April 30, 2009. So you can stock up on birthday presents too!

What I like best about the Wild Planet Toy Store is that they carry the complete line of Wild Planet toys, so you can get everything at one place, which increases your savings on shipping.  (In case you're wondering, I don't work for the Toy Store, I work for the company that makes the toys - a  totally separate group of people.)

Alas, yet another Super Bowl Sunday in America is right around the corner. Most people have their traditions, getting together with family, deep frying things, drunken brawls with cousins post-game...I unfortunately do not have any longstanding traditions to look forward to. However, this year a very exciting event has peaked my interest (other than the prospect of baked macaroni and cheese and short lines at the supermarket during game time). In an unlikely match up, Sephora (those geniuses) is offering celebratory free shipping on every order from 1/31 to 2/2 with coupon code SUPERBOWL at checkout. Quite honestly, is there a more appropriate way to show my unbiased support of both teams and the great tradition of football than sitting in the comfort of my own home, face deep in junk food, shopping for makeup with free shipping and 4% cash back? I think not.

SmokyLash.jpgI can say for sure that a replacement tube of Makeup Forever Smoky Lash will be in my shopping cart, and I wholeheartedly recommend that you put one in yours too. As if I needed an excuse to praise my newest mascara obsession... allow me to list some things that make it praiseworthy. First, in a time where a $30 mascara doesn't cause beauty junkies to bat an eye, the $22 price is reasonable; especially with respect to how well this mascara works. It is at least four separate formulas in one. It thickens, lengthens, and holds a fantastic curl whilst providing the darkest black pigment without weighing lashes down. And for those of you traditionalists out there who are put off by the novelty application brush of some brands (Givenchy's Phenomen' Eyes, I still love you, I really do) Smoky Lash has the "Cadillac" of application brushes: perfect. classic. reliable. Makes any woman want to lash up.

This Superbowl, begin your own tradition with the help of Sephora and get free shipping on your favorite products (need I remind you, that it is like getting $5.95 off), 4% cash back, and something pretty to look forward to in five to seven business days.

Shop on!


January 30, 2009

In an act of utter kindness, the calendar has given us a long weekend that happens to encompass one very special day. That day would be Valentine's Day. Typically V-day falls on a Tuesday, Thursday, or the night before the big presentation is due. In the past, Valentine's Day has always consisted of running home from work, throwing on whatever looks "cute", and waiting for a table while seated at the bar. By the time the bf and I are actually able to sit down to a meal, we're both too drunk and too cranky to enjoy ourselves. The evening is a blur, and next thing I know, it's time to get ready for work again.

So much for romance.

This year, though, the stars have aligned, and I intend on making this weekend the best it can be. I'm sure you'll want to do the same. So with that in mind, here are some weekend getaway ideas. These places are sure to put the spark back in your relationship, without burning a hole in your pocket.

Las-VegasFor those looking for a little less conversation, a little more action, Vegas is where it's at. Book by February 28th, and enjoy flight plus two nights hotel accommodations starting at $180. Shopping at Expedia gets you 1% cash back.

Note To Reader: Vegas weddings are in fact legal marriages, so please think twice.

cruise-ship.jpgSailing is the new flying, only the food is way better. Shop CheapTickets and sail for as low as $47 a night, plus enjoy other savings such as free onboard spending. CheapTickets will get you $2 cash back.

Note To Reader: Although the food is delicious and abundant, consuming 10,000 calories a day will have you in the hands of the ship's nurse. Unlike the commercials, she is not a bikini goddess.

Tudor Hotel New York.jpgThe Tudor Dynasty was an English family known for ending the War of The Roses, and for losing their wives. The Tudor Hotel in New York is known for being a historical landmark, and for having rooms as low as $107 a night. Receive $3 cash back.

Note To Reader: Book through Orbitz and say forget about it. The price, not your wife.

cars.jpgWith the airlines needing a kidney just to check your baggage, renting a car is more sensible than ever. The perks include exploring what lays beyond the backyard, and paying as little as $13.95 to do so. Rent your car through Hotwire and receive 2% cash back.

Note To Reader: Make use of comforts such as extended leg room and a guaranteed window seat. There is no in-flight movie, however use of electronics is always acceptable.

Have a Great Trip!


January 20, 2009

While magazines such as Vogue, Elle, and Lucky are showing off the must-have Spring trends, I can't help but think shopping for Spring is asinine when the weather is twenty five degrees with a chance of snow. Such was the weather during a recent trip home to the cold tundra that is Boston. While on a shopping excursion, I couldn't help but notice mannequins already donning Spring garb, as if unaware of the fresh blanket of snow that covered the city. I wandered into one of these stores and immediately ran into a woman clutching a pair of linen shorts I deemed inappropriate for anyone other than Paris Hilton. Not looking clinically insane or like a street walker, I naturally assumed she was buying resort wear. Once I overheard (eavesdropped on) her conversation, I understood the reasoning behind her out-of-season shop fest. The pile of clothing she was guarding as if she thought it might disappear was chock full of sale items. Some from as early as pre-Fall, which, having the same weather as Spring, was enough to get me digging too. When it comes to sales, I am not too proud to dig through last season's goods in search of a great deal.

Rendezvous-ClutchWhen the deal's as good as an extra 30% off all items at Tobi, there's nothing stopping me from stocking up for Spring '09. Hey, why pay full price when you can look as chic for half? It's this mentality that had me scouring Tobi in search of something new and fresh to take me out of my Winter woes. Whether it's something new, or something tried and true, there's plenty to get you digging the cyber way.

This Rendezvous Clutch From Rebecca Minkoff is done in the bright neon shades I'm loving for Spring. Since this clutch is from RM's Spring Collection, getting 30% off is enough to get even the most reserved shopper swinging her Visa. Now just $263, I'll save a whopping $112 off the original. Savvy shopping never looked so good.

When it comes to men, I often feel the male of the species gets the shorter hand, and too often does Men's fashion take a backseat. Much to the dismay of the bf, it's not uncommon for the current issue of GQ to go missing, or for the latest copy of Antenna to reach my hands before he can even check the mail. I've always considered fashion an art form, with men being no exception. For those who are up on their fashion game, Tobi is home to such fashion forward labels as J.Lindeberg, PS By Paul Smith, Comme Des Garcons, and Opening Ceremony.

This Volterra Motorcycle Jacket by S.W.O.R.D. is a fresh take on what is otherwise a classic jacket. The streamlined mandarin collar and slim fit help to offset rough elbow patches and an abundance of zippers. This jacket is the perfect hybrid of downtown tough and uptown chic, making it the easiest piece in your wardrobe to dress around. Once selling for $913, this jacket is on sale for just $456. From now until Thursday take an extra 30% off, and you'll end up saving $600 off the original. Add 5% cash back, and watch the savings add up.

MLKWhen thinking of what to write for today's blog, I started off the same way I always do. I found some cute items, a few sales, and a tiny anecdote to tie everything together and hopefully entertain. I started to write about my years of working retail, and always having to work on MLK weekend. I was going to do a blog on how happy I was to have a full three day weekend, and what I would buy, etc, etc, etc. The more I thought of a funny story to interject, the more I realized I was missing the point entirely. Today is not about sales, an extra day off, or increased discounts. Today is about freedom, and the impact one man had on an entire nation in pursuit of freedom. Today is about Martin Luther King Jr. Today is about the civil rights movement, equality for all, and a better world. Today is not just about how far we've come, but how far we have to go.

With that being said, it is rather impossible to escape the plethora of sales going on, and being that the economy is in the dumps, if there is any shopping you have in mind, here's a list of sales and deals to save you money. Happy shopping and Happy Martin Luther King Jr. Day!

- Receive an 18pc Gift Set with a Beauty or Fragrance Purchase of $85
Available at Nordstrom       3% Cash Back

- Get up to 75% Off During the Winter Clearance Sale

If there's one thing I am looking forward to during an otherwise bland month such as January, it's the upcoming inauguration of Barack Obama. Politics aside, now is a time to celebrate. What better way to celebrate than with a party? For such a significant party theme as an inauguration, there's going to be some prep involved. Luckily Ebates has countless merchants that provide everything you need to get the party started. Here's a rundown of what you'll need to throw the best inauguration party anyone's seen in eight years.


Dick Chenye Pinata.jpgThere's something about trying to beat the living daylights out of a candy-stuffed object that's just fun. Kids love pinatas because of the candy inside. Adults however, seems to be a little too eager for cheap gum and low quality chocolate, leading me to think the reason behind trying to massacre a papier-mache form is because it offers a sort of stress release. Going with this theme, it only makes sense to pick a pinata that represents your scapegoat of stress. Unfortunately, finding pinatas in the shape of your boss's head is rather hard. Finding them in the shape of say... Dick Cheney is easy thanks to This site boasts enough pinatas to satisfy anyone's taste, including my ultra-Republican aunt. As much as I love her, talking politics with her is a sure way to cause a ruckus, in which case we simply agree to disagree. On top of pinatas, this site sells both costumes and party supplies, all with a pleasant 6% cash back. For easy planning I suggest the Election Time Party Kit. Only $39.99 this kit include plates, cutlery, streamers, confetti... you get the point.
Whatever party you're planning (or whichever party you belong to) this one stop shop has you covered.

Food and Drink

When planning a party, feeding your guests should be the number one priority. A hungry guest is likely to drink more to compensate for the lack of food, ultimately creating a house full of drunk, obnoxious people you once thought pleasant. Avoid the post-party awkward moments by ensuring there's plenty of food to go around. Unless you're the type who enjoys cooking for an army, I suggest catering as a means of effectively feeding the ravenous masses. Having aluminum tins filled with steaming lasagna can equal death to your clean carpets, so skip the furious scrubbing at 11pm and order from Whether it's bleu cheese & bacon burgers, or shrimp dumplings, this site has an overwhelming selection of bite size food perfect for keeping things (and guests) normal. Another incentive should be receiving 5% cash back, something not available to you at the local deli. The mouth-watering selection is so good, I'm now starving after having browsed the site. Not wanting to keel over and die of starvation, I'm now off to satisfy my hunger of a different kind, the shoe kind.

As we are rushing towards the last day to buy gifts online and have them arrive via standard delivery in time for Christmas, procrastinators out there had better hop to it and start shopping. I bought my first gift yesterday. It was actually inadvertent. While I was not technically gift shopping for my own benefit, I was looking for gifts to feature here on the blog. While most of the time these things overlap, and I do buy the things I gush and swoon over, there are other things that come my way and get passed along that do not always make it to my doorstep.

Today I navigated to the Bloomingdale's site to find a vibrant graphic on the homepage nearly impossible to ignore. I am pretty sure most people in the office surrounding me saw the glow of the webpage coming off my computer.


There it was, staring back at me in big letters: "Our Biggest Sale...Take 40% off a Large Selection" (pictured above).

While 40% off is nothing to turn your nose at, these days it is enough to cause increased blood pressure or your memorized credit card number to start pacing around your head either. My next stop was the Ebates coupon page, where I discovered a coupon offering an additional 20% off (with code SAVEMORE) and free shipping on orders of $100+ (with code SHIPXMAS). Now I am ready to shop. Before I knew it, my brother's Christmas present was purchased and on its way to his house in five to seven business days. And my bank account was barely phased, which is even more exciting.


I picked him up a pair of these Joseph & Lyman Shearling gloves, originally $95. Once all was said and done, these ended up being just about $45 with 3% cash back. Plus, if you want to earn free shipping (by getting the order over $100) you can shop for yourself and even ship to multiple addresses!

Shop on!


September 12, 2008


Greetings gentle readers, I can't believe it's already Friday again. Time flies when you're blogging for Ebates!

- Fossil is ending their free shipping deal today as well. While you're here, I feel really inclined to recommend the Drew Driver Cap from them. While I realize this may mean they sell out before I get one for myself, I haven't seen a cap this good looking in a long time, so this is the perfect way to take advantage of your free shipping option.

Saturday, September 13th

Good to see you all again for yet another thrilling installment of Free Shipping Friday.  Being the beginning of the month, there aren't really a ton of free shipping deals that are running out soon, but there are a couple that bear mention, plus there are a few that you've got some time to act on, but you'll want that time, because they're great deals.

Luckily for you, there are no free shipping deals expiring today, so you'll have at least 24 hours to act on anything I post today. So with no further ado, here we go...

Most people only think of watches and accessories when they hear the name "Fossil", but if you visit their online store, you'll see they have much more to offer beyond that. Also, make sure to use coupon code CJFREE08 to get that free shipping!

Sunday September 14th

First, Champion Catalog has Free Shipping on all orders, which means you can stock up on all sorts of great tees and athletic wear for back-to-school time.  The other is that Dickies is offering Free Shipping on all orders as well. I've gushed about Dickies on this blog before, and with the 5% you get back from Ebates, I can almost guarantee I'm going to be taking advantage of this opportunity.


August 15, 2008

Greetings, shoppers. Due to popular demand this will be the first of regular weekly installments of "Free Shipping Fridays" where I will be outlining some of the tastier choices for free shipping coupons offered by Ebates merchants for the upcoming week. I'll still be displaying my dazzling with and charm in the other blog postings, but these will be all about getting the information to you in the easiest and quickest ways possible. So here we go, in order of expiration, your free shipping deals:

There are three coupons that expire at the end of the day today, August 15th:

Champs Sports is offering free shipping on all orders over $50 with coupon code LKS18CHFS.

FragranceNet is offering a sweet smelling free shipping offer, with free shipping on all orders with coupon code LNKF8.

The Horchow Collection has free shipping on all orders over $150 with the coupon code 48HOURS. This does exclude furniture, so don't think you can order a brand new four poster bed and get it shipped free.

Remember -- these all expire at midnight tonight, so if you want that free shipping, the clock is ticking.

Moving on through the weekend, there are a few more offers winding down.

Through the 16th of August, you can get free shipping on any orders of $99 or more at Foot Locker with coupon code LKS18GF9.

Sunday August 17th is the end of the weekend, but it is also the end of the free shipping offers from these two stores:

Pfaltzgraff has a weekend special offer on free shipping on any order over $100 with code AFSHAUG. This offer is only good for these three days, so jump on it while you can!

Shu Uemura has free shipping on any order, so if you don't want to pay to have some new eyelashes or any of your makeup shipped to you, this is your chance to save some green, just enter coupon code SHU08.

During the week, you'll have the chance to cash in on a few other free shipping offers as well:

As I'd mentioned in the last free shipping posting, Wet Seal has free ground shipping on any order over $15.00 as long as you place your order before midnight on the 18th.

Kohl's has free standard shipping for any order over $75, which expires on the 19th.

Also expiring on the 19th is the free shipping offer from Ann Taylor, who is offering free shipping on orders over $150, just enter the coupon code FREESHIP before you check out.

Adidas has free shipping on all orders over $99 with the coupon code ADISHIP99A, which expires on Thursday the 21st.

Next Friday, Red Envelope's free shipping offer for orders over $75 will expire, but I will remind you of that again on the day of expiration.

And last, but far from least, I will remind you all yet again that Bloomingdale's does have free shipping on all orders over $200 through the end of next weekend. That is a great deal that you'll continue to hear about in next week's edition.

For now, that's all from Free Shipping Fridays.  I'll be back later today to provide my fun and exiting idea to have some fun this weekend.


August 12, 2008

Sorry about the title, but I couldn't resist such a clever way to say "blowout". 

Now, let's get right down to brass tacks.  There are a few great free shipping deals going on right now that won't last long (some might even be gone depending on when you read this) that you probably want to know about.  So here we go, in order of expiration date.

Expiring at midnight tonight, Land's End is offering free shipping on all orders. 

Also expiring tonight, both Delia's and Alloy are offering free shipping on orders over $25.00. 
For Delia's enter code: DWJAFF

The last offer expiring this week is from, and they are giving us all free shipping on every order big or small through midnight Friday.  Make your weekend a little sweeter by entering the code LNKF8 when you check out.

Looking ahead to next week's expirations, there are a few more free shipping deals that you probably want to know about.

First, for the young ladies in your life, Wet Seal is offering free ground shipping on any order over $15.00 as long as you place your order before the end of the day on the 18th.

Next, Ann Taylor is offering free shipping on anything over $150.00, so shop to your heart's content and make sure you enter the code FREESHIP before August 20th to save some extra coin.

Last, yet far from least, Bloomingdale's has free shipping on orders of $200.00 or more, and as any Bloomie's shopper will tell you, that isn't a hard total to reach.  So make your purchases, and enter coupon code SHIP17 at checkout before the end of the day on August 24th, and you're set.

Now get out there and start saving!

Since we launched Coupons on Demand last week, I've noticed that some Ebates members are interested in category-specific coupons, such as a coupon for electronics, or offers for baby supplies. There is an easy way to do this on our Coupons and Specials page. There, you will find three drop down menus which allow you to filter coupons in three ways:

  • Filter coupons by  Category. For example, if you are looking for any kind of electronics coupon, select "Electronics" on the menu.
  • Filter coupons by Offer Type. Looking for free shipping? Money off? A free gift? Simply select one from the menu and those are the only offers you will see.
  • Filter coupons by Store. Got a specific store in mind? Choose it from the menu and you will only see current offers for that merchant.

020707blogtaxesNow that you've received your W-2 or 1099, it's time to think about that most joyous of joys: filing your taxes! I know it's exciting, but please, cork the champagne for a moment and hear me out. You can earn Cash Back when you purchase tax preparation services through Ebates! There are currently four tax services available:

I recommend taking a look at H&R Block's Most Overlooked Deductions (under "Tax Tips"). It is so, so comforting to know that the Old Navy very expensive designer coats I donated to charity will cushion the financial blow...hey, I have receipts!

In times like these, you may want to treat yourself to something soothing: a lovely bottle of wine, some gourmet chocolates, a trip to Hawaii... Ok, so maybe the trip to Hawaii sort of negates the whole "I'm broke because of tax season" thing, but at least you'll be miserable and broke while sitting on the beach, sipping a pina colada. Oh, and you can earn Cash Back on credit card services too since you'll probably need them!

I'm such an enabler.

Today, get 10% Cash Back at Gap! Not only does Gap have great fall clothing, they have (Product) Red. If you haven't had a chance to shop Red, now's the time. You can even choose to have your Ebates Cash Back sent to the charity of your choice!

101606blogneweggtvLast week, three Ebates merchants finally took the plunge and are now offering Cash Back: at 6%, Newegg with 1% and Enterprise Rent-A-Car with 2%.

You may be wondering, "What good is 6% Cash Back, let alone 1%?"

Let me tell you, Cash Back really adds up fast. Ebates keeps track of your Cash and displays your lifetime earnings right at the top of the page. It's a cool feature because it's often hard to keep sight of just how valuable Cash Back can be when you're earning a little at a time.

If you buy something pricey like, say, a new computer from Newegg or a piece of jewelry from Blair, you could easily rack up a lot of Cash. A $1000 computer at 1% Cash Back gets you $10!

101606blogenterpriseOne awesome deal is the 50% off weekend car rentals promotion at Enterprise. Be sure to start at Ebates to earn Cash Back!

If you want to splurge, check out the theatrical quality costumes at Spirit! They've also got some very plush looking Lil' Animal costumes for babies. I'm in love with the Lil' Elephant and Lil' Monkey- so cute. Remember, Spirit also offers Cash Back through Ebates!

TargetdoublecashbackI know I've said it before, but I love Target! No longer a tawdry den of puffy-painted abominations, Target  has revamped their image and offers affordable and stylish wares to  impress even the most discerning discount shopper.

There's no better time  to buy; today is Double Cash Back Tuesday at Ebates! When you buy from, you'll get 8% Cash Back!

If you want to save cash but stock up on unique, exotic home furnishings, then  Target's Global Bazaar is a great option, especially if you're a Pier One or Cost Plus World Market shopper (neither has a Cash Back program). They've got cool pieces inspired by distant locales from South Asia to Eastern Europe, and you don't have to risk a case of Delhi Belly to get them!

They've got a cute new line of women's apparel called "Paul and Joe" which features french-inspired fashions geared toward younger women. If you're not sure you can pull off the green houndstooth miniskirts, then check out the ever-popular line by Isaac Mizrahi!

To top it all off, Target is offering free shipping for a limited time on all bed and bath items and on women's apparel if you spend $50 or more!

So, you'll notice that today is a big day for The Daily Cash Back! Much like the gal in this classic film, the blog received a glamorous makeover. Though instead of a donning a new crop top and highlights, it's now being hosted by Typepad and has a stylish new header, thanks to the graphic design gurus here at Ebates.

ALSO- the 'comments' function is much more easy to use- no more waiting hours and hours to see your comments published. Why not try it out? Tell me what's on your mind!

Now, to the matter at hand: An Ebates staffer sent me a great coupon code yesterday afternoon. Rumor has it that upon making a purchase at or, the following codes will hook you up with an employee discount of 30%.

These merchants aren't affiliated with Ebates, so I can't guarantee that these codes work, but why not give it a shot?

These expire on August 27th, so hurry on over! Unless of course you're looking for a new day job at Foot Action- then you can just use the real employee discount. You know, that might be a good plan. Think about it; you'd be up to your neck in all the discounted Pumas you could possibly want with nary a care about things like coupon codes...or rent. Or your cell phone bill.

This is one of the best back-to-school deals I've seen so far! Best Buy has put together a Dorm Room Package that includes a mini-fridge, television and discount dorm suppliesmicrowave for $199!

This deal is so popular that it's backordered for a week or two.

Here's the low down on the goods:

  • Avanti 1.7 Cu. Ft. Compact Thermoelectric Refrigerator:  This cute little fridge holds just enough to keep your room stocked  with cool drinks, and is big enough to hold a 2-liter bottle of of  Jarritos. Or Sprite. Because that's what you drink in college.
  • Insignia 20" Flat Tube TV: So, technically it's not a flat screen TV, it's a flat tube TV...  but the screen just looks flat. Best Buy describes it this way: "Flat  picture tube produces vivid images without the glare and picture  distortion common with curved picture tubes." Whatever you want to call  it, it's a pretty darn slick looking TV for the price.
  • Proctor Silex .6 Cu. Ft. Compact Microwave:  Just think- with a microwave in your dorm, you can practically bury  yourself in mountains of Easy Mac! They don't tell you this in high  school, but that's what college really is all about: creamy, delicious  Easy Mac. Ramen is so '90's.

Why not buy your books with a friend? If you spend $25 or more, you get free shipping!

How  often can you buy brand new books for this cheap? It's a lot better  than chipping dried chocolate off your student store used copy of "Madame Bovary".

According to Wikipedia, "'Flea season' is traditionally at the end of summer and in the early fall, but in warmer areas can last year  round." For anyone that has a carpet or knotty old wood floor, you know  how futile this battle can be! They lay their eggs in the carpet, bite  you when you're sleeping and drive your cat or dog into violent  scratching fits that make their legs go like this for hours! The little blood-suckers are more stubborn than Mariah Carey's backstage demands. There are myriad ways to keep your cat or dog flea and tick free, but how do you know which way is safest?

The East Bay SPCA says that "flea collars, powders and sprays are ineffective and are not recommended. DO NOT use anymedication or flea-killing agent not recommended by your veterinarian". In fact, on the insistence of the Environmental Protection Agency,  Hartz, a popular brand for flea and tick preventives, "has agreed to  cancel uses of several flea and tick products that may be associated  with a range of adverse reactions, including hair loss, salivation,  tremors, and numerous deaths in cats and kittens." It's comforting to  know that the EPA has steppedup on this issue. Hopefully Hartz will be able to develop non-toxic alternatives to their current line of flea and tick control products.

The widely reputed safe alternative to flea collars and drops is Advantage topical solution. Highly effective and veterinarian-recommended,  Advantage has become one of the most popular methods offlea control for  dogs and cats. The East Bay SPCA supports it, saying "Advantage works  best for fleas". This kind of effectiveness, however, doesn't come  cheap. If you buy Advantage from your veterinarian, you can end up  paying hundreds of dollars for a several-month supply (especially if  you have multiple cats or dogs)!

If you haven't visited the Pet Stores page at Ebates, take a moment to peruse the deals! You can find great  bargains on Advantage that will likely be a lot cheaper than the prices  offered by your vet. Most of these stores offer Cash Back through Ebates. Be sure to look at the coupons for each store to compare prices!:

The Cell Phone: A triumph of humankind's ingenuity, and certainly one of the most significant developments of the latter half of the 20th century.

Let's face it: discount razrwhen someone's yacking next to you in line at Safeway, it can be more annoying than a hundred Hoodia spams in your inbox from your "pal" Richard Q. Unicorn.

Despite the petty annoyances, most of us need our cell phones simply for the convenience factor. Ebates offers Cash Back at some of the top mobile service providers:

Oftentimes, the mail-in rebates from these carriers are so good that your cell phone costs zero dollars. That considered, the Cash Back from Ebates is all gravy!

Soon, we'll look at some of the hottest phones on the market!

discount clive backpackYes, it's August- those last precious weeks of cavorting with friends, staying up late and going to the beach.      Come September, it'll be the red ink on that first history exam that'll require a pair of sunglasses!

Why not look at the bright side? Back-to-School also means Back-to-School shopping, a welcome respite when you're about to dive into the books rather than the pool.

Lets  take a quick look at some of the essentials you'll need for a proper  scholastic debut, whether you're shopping for yourself or the kids:

  • A great bag: eBags and Ebates have teamed up to give you $10 off on any backpack purchase of $45 or more! They've got LiveWire bags that have an iPod holder, laptop packs, ultralight bags, as long as it's a backpack, you get a discount!
  • A new computer: For students, a great option is the Compaq Presario V2000Z. At $399.99 after a mail in discount booksrebate, it's not a huge investment and is a great machine for word-processing and web browsing.
  • New threads: For great Back-to-School bargains for the girls, try Delia*s or Alloy.  Both offer free shipping fororders of $75 or more. For guys and girls, another good pick is Old They have a flat $5 shipping rate and a ton of brand new styles in stock!
  • Books: Wal-Mart is doing 97 cent shipping on all books! It doesn't get much cheaper  than that. Barnes and Noble is having a summer clearance with some  titles up to 80% off!

On a budget? Tired of leaving the Apple Store with nothing but your sleek, titanium-encased dreams? Try buying a refurbished Mac or iPod.

I know, the r-word kind of gets stuck in my throat, too. It's hard for me to imagine my iBook in the arms of another. Word on the street, though, is that discount ipod nanorefurbished Macs and iPods are just as good as the brand new ones, but at a fraction of the cost. Apple has a very stringent refurbishment process, so you can feel confident about your purchase.

If you still aren't 100% convinced, remember that all machines are covered by Apple's One Year Limited Waranty. You can even buy Apple Care for total reassurance. (Which I always recommend since the coverage is more than generous. My 2002 iBook turned out to have some irreparable glitches, so Apple issued me a new iBook- even though I'd had mine for 2 years already- all because I had Apple Care. How cool is that?)

An Ebates member named Michael (not the same one from a couple days ago!) had this to say about his experience with Apple Certified refurbished computers: "As a member of Ebates, I have purchased several refurbished products and will continue to do so over the next couple of years.  The product is just a good as new and I save several hundreds of dollars in addition to getting my big fat check."

Although most of you aren't Mac users (let's not go there), many of you love the iPod. Apple is reducing their refurbished iPods up to $80 off!

Make sure you start with Ebates so you can get some Cash Back, too!

Hey! What's YOUR Best Deal Ever? Keep sending 'em in!!

parking meterI'd  like to tell you about Mike and his Best Deal Ever on Ebates. Mike is a  videographer in San Francisco who produces hundreds of DVD's on any  given week. Not one to slack on presentation, he prints a custom label  on each DVD. discount pet supplies

Living  in the Bay Area, Mike spends most of his income on exorbitant rent and  parking fees. He needs the best deals he can find on things like cat  food, lens cleaner and, of course, ink!

When  I told him about Ebates, he scoffed and said, "I already get the lowest  prices at Inkgrabber. I don't care about this Ebay- I mean Rebates- I  mean..."

"Listen, Mike," I butted in. "You don't  understand. I know you're getting an ok deal on your ink already, but  you should really look at Ebates. You get Cash Back!" Mike,  unconvinced, returned to his editing (syncing "YMCA" to overserved,  arrhythmic groomsmen isn't easy).

A few days later, I noticed a pile of fourteen new ink cartridges in Mike's studio. "Where did you get these?" I asked. discount ink

"Actually," Mike explained, "I got them on Ebates!" Intrigued, I listened as Mike went on to explain his Best Deal Ever:

  • First,  Mike went to Inkgrabber for a Combo Pack of his regular ink (a generic  type that's good for fliers and DVD printing). At Inkgrabber, he  normally paid $6.42 per cartridge for a pack of 7.
  • Then, he went to through Ebates, and found the  same ink for $5.71 per cartridge for a pack of 14.
  • Next, Mike visited the Coupons and Specials page on Ebates and found a 10% off coupon for! This brings down his cost to $5.14 per cartridge.
  • On top of the already lower price PLUS the 10% off coupon, Ebates gave Mike 17% Cash Back at! That brought his cost per cartridge down to $4.27!
  • Oh, and to top it all off, he got Free Shipping!

Let's review: Mike used to pay $6.42 for each cartridge, but through Ebates he pays $4.27! He got a total of $12.24 Cash Back just for buying his regular ink! Suffice it to say, Mike is now a loyal  Ebates shopper and can buy ink, live in the Bay Area and still afford  to feed his cat.

Special tip from Mike: "Generic  ink can save you a ton of money and is perfect for most printing needs,  like flyers, letters and even photos.  If you require precise color  accuracy in your prints, stick with name-brand inks.  If you can handle  a little variation in color (most people would only notice the  difference from a side-by-side comparison of prints), then save with  generics!"

There are times when having a 3.4 GHz dual-processor PC with a 30-inch display is simply a necessity. You need the fast processor speed for those visits to Sony's Running With Scissors homepage, since you can't possibly wait until fall for the movie- hey,  Flash pages can take a long time to load! And it's gotta last at least until the next season of Lost begins. What else are you going to do on Wednesday nights?

Other  times, though, you don't want to spend $3800 on a computer because you  have that pesky mortgage to pay, or you need to actually save for your  kids' college education (the degree-based meritocracy system is highly  overrated, right?).

It's times like these that you should step back, take a moment to prioritize, and say hello to the Compaq v2000z:

Compaq v2000z

Pretty  cute, huh? By all means, take a moment to admire it's clean lines,  sleek aluminum-hued exterior and 1.29" thickness. I know, I know- it  looks pretty fancy. But guess what?

It starts at $399.

The HP Home and Home Office Store is offering a rebate that gets you up to $100 cash back when you buy a Compaq v2000z. It may cost scarcely more than certain other tech toys that are a fraction of its size, but it stands up pretty well to other  PC's in its class. It's got a 14" screen, a pretty darn fast processor  speed, and it's ultra-lightweight. It would make a great computer for  web browsing, CD/DVD burning, and at this price, it's affordable even  for a student.

Hey, with a computer at this price and the Cash Back you'll get from Ebates, you can get your new-machine fix, distract yourself until fall programming resumes, and still afford to keep your house!
