How to Save Money Holiday Shopping
I love shopping online. It makes it so easy to find the best price without having to go to five different stores. I know some people are still skeptic about it, but there are so many benefits to shopping online, especially during the busy holiday season.
A. You don’t have to fight crazy traffic at the mall
B. You know you are getting the best price
C. FreeShipping.com!!! Yep, let me introduce you to the NEW way to SAVE MONEY HOLIDAY SHOPPING!! Members can save 10% cash back on each purchase – automatically! In addition to earning 10% cash back on purchases you make at over 1,000 top retailers, like Walmart, Kohl’s, Nordstrom, Best Buy, ProFlowers, and more — you receive free shipping, free returns, and price protection! With the 10% cash-back offer, FreeShipping.com members enjoy a bigger discount on their online purchases than any other subscription program offers.
How it works:
Members simply log in, click on any participating retailer’s offer, and make their purchases as they normally would. As soon as the retailer notifies FreeShipping that a member’s item has shipped, they apply 10% of the total purchase (minus taxes and other fees) to the member’s Savings Center account, where members can track their cash-back and rebate earnings over time. At the end of every calendar quarter, they tally up each individual member’s 10% cash-back earning over the previous three months and send them a check for all their earnings in that time span.
- 20% cash back at five different retailers from Black Friday (November 28) through Cyber Monday (December 1). Some participating retailers include Walmart, QVC, Sears, Children’s Place, Gap, and Nordstrom!
- Search tool that instantly compares prices for you, so that you get the best deal possible
- Free shipping codes and links, as well as, other retailer savings offers that you can claim at checkout
- Shipping Rebates that pay you back if you are charged shipping fees on purchase made through FreeShipping.com
- Price Protection: They will have you the difference in price if you purchase an item and find it advertised for less within 90 days
- Return Shipping Rebates: They will cover the charges if you need to return any online purchase for any reason
I am totally crushing over a certain two-tone Kate Spade watch I saw at Nordstrom. So, I started by going to FreeShipping.com, logging into my account, and searching “kate spade watch”. Then, I just scrolled down until I found the exact watch I am wanting.
Next, I simply hit the “Go” button under the product and it took me to screen below, where it compared prices at different retailers. You see it tells you instantly that Newegg.com has the watch at the cheapest price of $191.25.
So, if I was wanting to purchase the watch, I would hit visit store and checkout like normal. After that, I would receive 10% cash back from FreeShipping.com mailed to my house. That is a $52.88 total savings ($33.75 savings from price search + $19.13 cash back) just on one item!!! Just think, if you can save over $50 on one item how much you could save over the holidays on all of your shopping needs.
