Extra Cash Back for Shopping Online ~ Ebates (I’ve made $36 since October)

Do you use Ebates? Some of you have been around for awhile and are very familiar with it. Others are new, so here’s a breakdown.

If you’re shopping online,  I highly recommend that you use Ebates!

Start at Ebates, type the name of the place you want to make a purchase, then click through to the retailer’s site (if included).  It takes a few seconds and then everything is the same after that.  The only difference is that a percent goes into your Ebates account.  They will send you a check sometime after you hit $5.01, every three months.  If you don’t hit the mark, your balance carries over.

There are TONS of retailers included.  (Target isn’t pictured, but is also included and you’ll still get an extra 5% off for using your Target Red Card.)

Sign up with Ebates and start saving even more!  They key is remember to use them, whenever you make an online purchase.  Unfortunately, very few Amazon purchases are included.  :(

Here’s my summary since October 1st:

It won’t make you rich, but heck, I’ll take an extra $36 for doing nothing more than going through Ebates to make my online purchases.

You’ll also get a $10 cash back bonus, when you make your first $25 purchase within 90 days of signing up.

(I get a referral bonus when you sign up, which helps support this site.  Thank you for using my link!)

** If you do a search, there are some similar sites, but I prefer to stick with one, so my cash adds up quickly and I can cash out.  When I checked them out (years ago), Ebates had a higher payout for most things.

Song Lyric Photo Prints ~ Perfect for Christmas!

Landslide ~ Fleetwood Mac inspired song lyric art paint

My friend posted some artwork on Facebook that she got for her new office, and I was in love.  Now, I can’t stop adding prints to my cart for my kids and my husband.  I just love these, and they’d make a great Christmas gift.  I’m just getting the prints and I’ll get my own frame from Target. I also love that they are handmade from a woman in Minnesota.

Go here to check out all of the prints.

I seriously can’t narrow it down.  I love this one for my son. He can’t wait to move to NYC when he turns 18.

Free Bird ~ Lynard Skynard inspired song lyric art print

And my husband should get this one for me.  HA!  :)

Have I Told You Lately ~ Van Morrison inspired song lyric art print

 

And I love this for my daughter…

Blackbird ~ The Beatles inspired song lyric art print

Free Gund Bear with $100 Amazon Gift Card Purchase ~ Prime Members Only

I think I’m about to buy a $100 Amazon gift card for myself.  :)

I know it will be spent in a short time and I can get the a cute Gund bear for free by ordering here.

It will make a cute gift for someone, maybe with a different gift card tied around its neck.  I’m not sure yet, but I consider it free since that money and more are still going to Amazon this season.  :)

Go here to get a $100+ gift card and the bear is free, if you have Prime Shipping.  If not, you can sign up for a free Prime Membership trial.  Just be sure to cancel, if you don’t want it after the trial period ends.

I’m not sure when this offer ends.

(Thanks, Alicia’s Deals!)

Help, Please! ~ Costs you Nothing, but HUGE to Me!

 

If you’re doing Amazon shopping this season (or ever!), I’d really appreciate your help.  It won’t cost you anything.

Can you use this link to begin shopping on Amazon or go to the website (www.BargainBeliever.com) and look for the Amazon search box on the top left?

When you start with the search box, it won’t matter if you end up buying something different than what you searched for, so don’t worry about going back and forth.

I love Amazon!  It’s a great place to go for reviews, comparing prices, and … buying!  Many of our gifts are coming from Amazon this year, as usual.  It’s hard to beat the speed of delivery and their pricing.

Why?  I earn a small commission on most everything you purchase from Amazon.  It adds up and helps keep this site going.

I have fees associated with hosting, security, back-up, etc.  But, the biggest expense . . . I can’t do it alone and need to hire help.  Without help, I quit.  The work is overwhelming!

The vast majority of the the information (and most time-consuming part) doesn’t generate any revenue, or very little.  I won’t give you the whole story, but just know I’m often cutting it close with my expenses.

I’ve thought about quitting many times.  It’s been 7 1/2 years now!  My life would be much more stress-free, but I’m not sure it’s meant to be that way, so I press on because I love being able to help you.  I feel like some are even counting on me and saving is not just something nice or preferred, but completely necessary.  I may not be rolling in the money, but I’m savoring the appreciation/stories I hear from many of you and the satisfaction of being able to help those who need (or just want) to stretch their dollars.

Beyond Amazon, you can tell your friends, family, and strangers about our site.  You can share deals that are your favorite.  Use all the links we provide, just in case they are ones that pay.  And, leave us your positive feedback or even questions, so we know that what we’re doing is really being used.   Be active on our Facebook page, where we like to interact with you.  A simple thumbs up goes a long way.  We know you’re there!  It’s terrible to spend time doing a post and then wonder how well it was received.  Yes, I can see clicks, but that doesn’t always tell the whole story.

For those who have been around her for awhile, thanks for always being so supportive.  You’re what keeps me going and I appreciate each of you and how you’re willing to help me be successful.  THANK YOU!!

Box Card Sets Make Great Gifts (only 55¢ per card!)

My husband and I just celebrated our 14th wedding anniversary. My mother in law called saying she felt awful that she didn’t get out and get a card for us. I didn’t mind, but to a different generation, sending a card is special.   You don’t text or FB message or tweet.  Her mobility isn’t what it used to be, so getting out is harder and harder for her.

In any case, she’s so hard to buy for at Christmas.  Then, I thought of a great idea!  I can get her a box of cards and a book of stamps, even include some international ones for our relatives in Canada.  It’s practical and useful, and I bet over the next year, she’ll be thankful for it at least 40 times over!

I love this set from Amazon with unique designs and gold embellishments. It includes 40 all occasion cards for $25.97, which is about 55¢ per card!  Heck, I may get a box for myself.  I’m always remembering after I go to the store about a birthday or anniversary. I may get a second set for her of all birthday cards.  We have a large family.  :) Plus, both sets ship free since they are over $25. They have awesome reviews with people saying the cards are good quality. They are great to keep in your cubby at the office too, so you never forget a special occasion.

There are lots of other sets here.

You could make your own and go to the dollar store. Those are typically 2 for $1 or $1 a piece, so I like the sets from Amazon better since they come in a nice box and I don’t have to do any of the work.  :)
