Attention Shopaholics – Here’s How to Maximize Savings and Earn Cash Back!

Hi guys, sorry it’s been a while. Work has been insanely busy. I was sent on my first work trip for the year since starting this new gig (check out my insta for a few photos – yes, I will be better at taking more photos/posting). My days are consumed by full work days and the gym (in desperate need of a vacay….STAT).

I got my September Cash Back Statement email from Ebates today which sparked the idea for today’s blog post. Basically…If you’re a shopaholic like me, I highly suggest you sign up for ebates. Honestly, years ago my cousin told me about this website but I was skeptical and didn’t do it. I could’ve saved MORE money had I listened to him. In 2013, I decided to give it a go and have been addicted since. I recommend downloading their widget because every time you’re online surfing, a notification will appear showing the % cash back on that particular website (see below). The cash back percentage depends on the retailer but sometimes there are double cash back promotions so keep an eye out for that.

It is so convenient and easy, right? If I’m shopping in the store and it’s available online, I typically opt to buy online because I get cash back from my credit card but ALSO ebates (gotta maximize savings when you’re a shopaholic and every dollar adds up!).

I’ve been a member since December of 2013 and my lifetime cash back is $530.70. Insane right? It’s a win-win. If you’re going to end up buying things online, you might as well take advantage of cash back benefits here and there. Either way, you’re gonna buy the items anyway right?


Here’s a summary of my “big chat check” history….yes, I downloaded the ebates app for when I do shopping off my phone ๐Ÿ˜‰


Do yourself a favor and sign up for ebates. You’re welcome and happy cash back!! The more you save, the more you can spend hahaha (sorry, I am an enabler). It is way past my bedtime. Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday!! Whoohoo!Screen Shot 2017-07-17 at 9.26.04 PM
