Last week in Bible study, I passed out coupons.
The Bible study is during the day, so I assumed these women were hard working, stay at homing, coupon clipping, deal seeking, just trying to earn a penny mamas.
Apparently, not everyone seeks out great deals like I do. They were shocked that coupons could save so much money. Shocked, I tell you!
So, in case you are in the same boat, I want to give you some tips.
- Maybe you are the mom who stays at home and tries to help the family any way she can.
- Maybe you are the poor college student who knows graduation is coming, so you better start saving.
- Maybe you are the older couple, who is about to retire but enjoys saving every penny they can.
- Maybe you don't really know how to save money. You just know you want to.
I want to devote every Sunday for the next few weeks, to helping you know how to save money.
To start off with, here are some of my favorite websites, in no particular order:
- Ebates: Probably my favorite of them all. Basically, if you are going to buy anything online, go through them. You will get back a percentage of what you paid. Not only that, but you get a $10 gift card just for signing up. Often times the percent that you get back goes up at certain points of the year. Black Friday is AMAZING on ebates.
- Ibotta: This is actually an app, not a website. Still, it is pretty awesome! Just choose the products you are going to buy, complete the tasks, take a picture and get money back!
- Rent Back: If you have any textbooks hiding in your closet, or if you are in school and are constantly going through textbooks, use this website. Basically, you give them your textbooks and they rent them out, you get money over and over!
- Savingstar:This one is similar to Ibotta, but you don't have to do any tasks. Just sign up for offers (they also have coupons), and then collect your cash! Yay!
- Recyclebank: This website is how I got gift cards for free at Christmas. I was so excited to give my husband a Home Depot gift card without spending a dime! All you do is complete the activities and earn points. Use the points to cash in for coupons, gift cards and more.
- My Coke Rewards: Similar to Recyclebank in that you get free stuff from the points you earn, the difference is all you have to do to earn points is drink Coke. Unfortunately, I don't drink that much soda, but if I did, this would be a favorite of mine!
Don't forget to come back next Sunday for a list of my favorite money saving websites! I wouldn't make it if it weren't for the advice of these bloggers!
FYI: Recyclebank and Ebates are both referral links, meaning, if you sign up, I get a little something too! Even if you didn't use my referral links, I still highly recommend each of these!
