Earn Money While Shopping ~

There is nothing easy about a day of shopping, the trying on of clothes, the fitting rooms, the walking, talking, and the stops for coffee.. oh wait, change that everything is great when it comes to a shopping trip.  How do you make shopping even better?  How about never paying retail price for those must-have fashion items, shoes, handbags, accessories, and home decor? I know how and I am about to share the secret with you, so shhhhh. I love shopping, getting brand names, never paying full price,  all the while earning money back and the Ebates site is perfectly aligned with my shopping diva-ness!  Sip that latte from your home brewer, stay in your jammies, jump into your favorite seat in the house and drive your laptop search bar right into Ebates where I know you will get the best parking spot for your mouse! Lavishly live a shopping spree out loud with this easy way to shop and earn.

I can definitively show you how to reap the benefits of shopping and earning money back while purchasing, great clothing from great stores.  Ebates is all about shopping and earning cash back,with doing nothing more than traveling to and through their site to your favorite stores.  Are you headed out on to a party?

One of my shopping trips online consisted of keeping things simple, and updated.  I shopped at Old Navy and Coach and I was able to purchase, 1 pair of multi-applicable shoes from Coach(1/2 price), as well as 2 Cardigans,  2 pairs of shorts and a bonus dress and I still came in under $150!  I am simply all put together and I got a lot for my money, but the best part? I earned 2% cash back from Old Navy (a few dollars, better in my pocket and not a coupon, so I get cash!) and I earned 3% at the Coach store in addition to buying my shoes at 1/2 price!  Name brand quality items and cash back I think I have done quite well and I never left my house.

Outfit totals :  $149.90 — under by .10, but factor in the money I made back which was $3.57, I actually earned while I shopped!

How to save even more:

1) if you had a store card you are often offered additional discounts

2) you can always place an online coupon code into your purchase as long as it is applicable

3) you could purchase the gift cards for the purchases online at a great store like Plastic Jungle or Gift Card Granny where you can purchase discounted gift cards for retail shopping.

Don’t drive the car, and don’t get dressed up, shopping has never been more realistic and easy than shopping online and driving that mouse right to this site! Lavishly live life without the shopping lines and still receive all the necessary retail therapy!

  19. sandy weinstein says

    not a big old navy fan, dont like their clothes, find they are very cheaply made, even their jeans. however, i do like coach, but the bags mainly, hard to say who won, like getting money back, but also like free shipping…

  20. Aimee Marie says

    I think you both did an amazing job , but Madam Deals squeaks thru with the win because of the coupon codes

  21. Diana C says

    Oh, hey its close, but I think Madame Deals won. :) I do like your style; going to Coach and all.

  22. margaret peg m says

  23. amanda whitley says

  24. Pamela Halligan says

    It was a close competition, but I have to give Madame Deals the win. I’m a frugal shopper who likes to find a great deal. Thanks for giving me some more helpful online shopping tips.

  25. Elizabeth Owens says

    You picked my kind of stores!! I think it is awesome that you got half off on the Coach shoes.. Love your style! and ebates!! i always use Ebates when I shop online

  26. Sylvia Ortiz says

    Although I totally agree with your reasoning on the excellent quality that COACH products have to offer, I have always felt that you could achieve the same quality as most TOP BRAND items and with your cost savings on non-branded items, you are able to purchase 3-4 more items for the same price of the ONE branded item. I’m just saying :)

  27. Bonnie Lacroix says

    While it was a really close race and you chose a store I like (Old Navy) I do have to give the win to Madame because she used multiple savings tips and ended up with a few more items for less.

  28. Michelle Tucker says

    I’ll have to go with Madame. I do love that you saved some money and that’s always good. Keep up the great work!

  29. Shanna says

    You ladies are awesome! You both found such great deals!! I would have to give the win to Madame Deals.

  30. Heather Manu says

    Wow, thank you for sharing your deals. I think that you got some good deals and thank you for telling your strategies to maximize your savings. While you both did great, I am going to give the win to Madame deals!

  31. Michelle S says

    Wow, you both did really well in this contest! I’m going to have to go with Madame Deals, though, as it can be really tough to get deals on business type clothing.
