Online Shopping ..Go through Ebates first.

We are going to be talking about ways to save money while online shopping. Couponing is one way I try to lead a frugal life.If you were going to buy a flat screen you would look at different stores to find the best deals right? Well I do that for everything I buy.

Here is one of my favorite sites.

With Ebates, you can earn cash back at any of over 1,200 stores any time you start your shopping trip at There are no points to redeem, no forms to mail in, and no fees. Stores pay Ebates a sales commission for sending shoppers their way, and Ebates uses the commission to pay you cash back.

Here’s a brief walk-through that will hopefully give you a better understanding as to how this site works.

  • First of all, you’ll need to Register with Ebates and create an account. (It’s completely FREE!)
  • Everytime you shop online, you’ll want to first login to your Ebates account.
  • Search for the online store you are shopping with. For example, if you want to shop at, you will first go toEbates, then search “The Children’s Place”. Your search results are shown below.
  • Click “Shop Now” and a tracking ticket will be created. You will then be linked to where you just shop as you normally would. You can even use coupon codes. The only difference is, Ebates is tracking your purchases so you can earn cash back.

Miltary Discounts


This is something we often see in our community here in the Valley as we are home to Fort Benning.  However, I was glad to find a compiled list of retailers and restaurants that offer military discounts.  Here’s a short list:

  • Allstate – Allstate Funding proudly offers all U.S. Military personnel a $250 credit towards the appraisal of a residential property. Ends 12/31/2010
  • American Airlines – Discount varies,  requires military ID
  • Buckle – 10% off, Free Shipping on all military orders
  • Budget – Varies, up to 25% off time and mileage    Store, requires military ID to redeem
  • Budget Truck Rental – Discount varies, simply ask and have a valid military ID with you.
  • Burger King – Discount varies, simply ask and have a valid military ID with you.
  • World of Coca Cola – $2 off standard admission price for service member with I.D. and up to four guests.
  • Wyndham Hotels – Discounts vary by 140 locations. Also depend on availability. Must present military I.D. upon check in.
  • Zaxby’s – 10% off with military ID


At first glance this looks like one SMOKING deal as it appears that you are snagging $75 worth of gift cards for as low as $22. However, I want to remind you that when offers their 80% off codes (which they do quite frequently!), then you can snatch up a $50 gift certificate for as little as $5 (regularly $25), so please keep this in mind before jumping up for joy over this deal. ;) With that  being said, if you are a frequent Target shopper and a new member to Eversave, then this is a nice deal to snag especially with Christmas right around the corner!

Head on over to Eversave where you can snatch up a $25 Target gift card AND a $50 gift card for only $25. If you’re new to Eversave, you’ll earn $3 in Save Rewards when you register for an account which means you’ll snag this deal for only $22.

Use your $25 Target gift card on anything in-store or online, and use your $50 gift card on thousands of participating restaurants and venues nationwide. Once you place your order on Eversave, you’ll receive a unique code that you will enter here to request your gift cards and they will be shipped to you for FREE!
