Tricks To SAVE MONEY Online

Today feels like Monday to me.

Why you ask.

Daughter happy we were able to zip up her suitcase. Sitting on it helps!

Today my kids went back to school! Well, at least my 2 youngest.  I took my college freshman to the airport on Saturday and she went to classes yesterday.

Didn’t matter that we picked out the kids clothes yesterday…it was still a horrible morning with crying and screaming. Sigh…just keeping it real.

Anyway, it’s quiet now.  I started a load of laundry and ate my oatmeal.  Sat down at the computer to change my Christmas desktop background and screen saver.  Guess what came up on my screen? The dreaded yearly “It’s time to renew your McAfee Subscription.”  So I clicked renew and a screen popped up and told me it would be $89.99 for a year of virus protection for 3 computers.  Before I signed in I thought to myself, “I wonder if Ebates or Retail Me Not might have a discount I could use?”  Both of these sites are my go tos for saving online.  Boy was I glad I did!

I logged onto Ebates first to find out they are paying a 12.5% rebate!  Woo hoo!  Let me tell you it all adds up!  I’ve received almost $400 in money back from Ebates!  Even better, when I clicked on McAfee from Ebates it offered me $45 OFF the $89.99 price!  I only paid $44.99 for my McAfee renewal!  AND 12.5% of that $44.99 I will get back!
Ebates Coupons and Cash Back

Here’s another secret…combine Ebates and Retail Me Not.  Now this time I wasn’t able to combine them.  I tried, but McAfee said “$45 savings has already been applied.”  But many times I can go to a store through Ebates and also use a discount code from Retail Me Not.  This brings double savings!  I’m almost afraid to share this information because I don’t want the 2 sites to find out and make it where we can’t do this.  Hopefully that won’t happen.

Anyway, I wanted to share this awesome deal with you.  If you need to update your virus protection program…might as well pay HALF PRICE!

OH!  I almost forgot!  Yesterday, I downloaded Retail Me Not’s App on my phone and saved $10 at Bath & Body Works!  Retail Me Not now has IN STORE coupons!  I knew they had an app now, but didn’t think I needed it because I don’t do online shopping on my phone.  The screen is too small for me (it’s what happens when you get old.)  So I didn’t want the app to take up space on my phone if I didn’t plan on using it.  Well, turns out it is definitely phone worthy!

P.S.: Ebates also has a phone app.

Disclaimer: I was not paid by Retail Me Not, Ebates or McAfee to write this post. I like the two sites and want to share them with my readers.

Last but not least, since this is my first post of 2014 HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Saving Brings JOY,

LOVE SAVING MONEY!

If you know me, I love to save money when it comes to shopping. Some people may enjoy bragging about how much money they spent on a product, not me, I’m the exact opposite! I like to “brag” about how much money I have saved…what a great deal I got for something.

So I was just looking for a pair of new cardio dance shoes for my new workout routine. ~Side note: it is imperative to have the best shoes for the activity you are engaging in. It makes all the difference and protects your feet & body from injury.~

Back to saving money…after doing some review reading and research I made my way over to my favorite money saving website: ebates.com. This website gives you money back on purchases for thousands of websites. I was excited to find out they sent me a check just a few days ago for $60.94. I should see it in the mail any day now. For 2009 I received a total of $112.36! Woohoo!!! So you want to get money back also? All you do is click here and join. It doesn’t take too long and it’s worth the small amount of time you put in.

My rebate for the dance shoes was $3.60. Not too much, but it all adds up over time. Plus I saved money ($8 shipping charge) on shipping by going to freeshipping.org That’s a total of $11.60 saved!

Bargains are my thing,
