Ebates: Holiday Savings + Win $100 Cash!

Every year, my son Cam starts dreaming up his holiday wish list around Halloween. This is when the thick holiday gift guides from Toys R Us and Target, start showing up in our mailbox!

When he was younger, he would cut out the photos from the holiday books and create a collage of gifts he wants. Now, at age 10, he prefers to create his wish list on Amazon.com, making it easy for me to email the link to family and friends.

This year, he wants LEGO Ninjago sets, an iPad! and other assorted video games and toys. With some of these gifts getting up there in price, it makes sense to shop through Ebates to get cash back!

As for my husband Walt and me, my husband always wants electronics of some sort. One year, it was a ROKU player, another year it was an Apple TV. I tend to go for cookware, like last year I got a Rachael Ray cookware set (love it, highly recommend!) and this year I really want a Keurig K-Cup. I've been wanting to try out all the different coffee flavors, hot cocoa, etc. And when our family stops by, it will be so nice to have a fresh cup of coffee waiting for them- or they can choose their own flavor, which I think is a really cool feature of the Keurig.

As I spend a lot of time online and blogging, over the years I've been blogging (10 years next year!), I have shifted to doing most of my shopping online too. I love shopping online year-round but especially at holiday time.

Here are my top 5 money-saving online shopping tips:

1. Look for coupon codes. This is the #1 way I save money online. By combining coupon codes, with free shipping and a sale, most of the time, you can save much more than you would in store.

2. Snatch up a deal. Sometimes it pays to wait for a price to go down. Other times, like with Amazon.com, their prices fluctuate almost daily. So if you see a great price on Amazon, especially during their Black Friday/Cyber Monday sale, pick it up before the price increases!

3. Read product reviews. Walt buys most of his electronics online. It is much easier to compare online reviews, prices, etc. vs. going into Best Buy and trying to figure out which product is the best.

4. Shop around. There are so many great online stores. I tend to stick with a few like Amazon.com and Overstock.com, but with earning cash back with Ebates, it makes sense to try out a few new stores too!

5. Earn cash back. If you aren't already earning cash back from Ebates, you are losing money! Ebates makes it super easy to earn cash back and get a nice big check, direct deposit or you can even donate your cash to your favorite charity.

If you aren't already a member, it takes less than 15 seconds to sign-up for your $10 Target, Barnes & Noble or Home Depot gift card bonus and join Ebates.

Sign up today and you'll be all set to earn cash back on Cyber Monday! All you have to do is log into your Ebates account, find your favorite stores, click through the link and shop. The money will be deposited into your account. Ebates makes it so easy to earn cash back.

Discover how online shopping saves you time and money this holiday season. Ebates is a great destination for online deals and you get cash back! Sign up today!
