I love to shop, but I love saving money or finding a bargain even more. I have a bit of frugal yankee in me.
I'm sure many of you are familiar with Ebates, the site "where it pays to shop online". You pick a store you want to shop at, go to it via Ebates, purchase your stuff and BAM in a couple weeks there is a check in your mailbox for whatever percentage Ebates pays to shop there (ex. Overstock is 5% on Home & Garden, Ballard is 4%, and Magazines.com is 21%). The latter is my favorite since I have a bad magazine addiction. There are over 1200 stores to choose from too. Its like free money. The nice thing is they pay quarterly so you get a "big fat check". I once used Overstock and a few other sites to buy some big items to stage a model home and got a check for over $200 back.
So I am sharing this link to sign up and stimulate the economy. They also give you $5 for signing up:
Check it out.
Now go spend wildly and thank me later when your check comes!
