Save Money + Make Money With Cash Back Shopping Rebates

This is an awesome concept! You can get cash back rebates for your online shopping at thousands of retailers. Why? They want your business and participate in programs of this kind to get it.

What it means to you:

If you join one of these programs and shop through their website instead of going directly to the retailer's, you can take advantage of extra coupon savings. You can also still use any other coupon offers you find at websites like,, and similar sites. By shopping through the program instead of directly from the retailer, you can earn a cash back shopping rebate of 1-30% depending on the retailer. Why not take advantage of this?

If you know a lot of people, you can make money helping others save money by joining these programs and sharing them with others. I would love to have you join me in spreading the word about these great programs because in today's times, everyone is concerned about stretching the holiday gift-giving budget. So if you do any type of business online or social network a lot, you are offering something of value to people you know and they will appreciate it.

I published an article online yesterday about how you can make money helping others save money during the Holiday season. It explains how it works, why it's worth sharing with others, how it can add additional income for you and how you might share this with others.

Check it out HERE.

Included in the article is a list of programs that offer cash back rebates that I recommend. They have been around for awhile, have a history of paying their cash back rebates (some even by Paypal) and are worth taking a look at. You will want to read all program details to see which offers benefit you the most. I participate in several because each offers different stores and/or benefits. For example, Ebates allows you to earn 2-6% on your eBay purchases which I love because I do shop on eBay. The extra step is worth it.

You can learn more about this great concept, how it can help you and others and why it's worth taking advantage of and sharing. Please give me a shout if you have any questions as I'd be happy to help. Happy Shopping & Saving!

Earn Cash Back Rebates For Online Shopping

Happy Fall! October 1st began as a beautiful morning here in Southwest Florida. I really enjoyed the morning as it was almost crisp compared to the heat we've been experiencing. We are looking forward to some cooler temps after a very hot Summer.

While I have been away from blogging in awhile, things here are back in full swing and I wanted to share some really great links with you where you can earn CASH BACK REBATES for your online shopping.

This is a great concept. I have been doing this for a few years and it's amazing how much you can save and earn from these great programs. With the Holidays coming and economic times having more feel the pinch, it's a great time to jump into some of these and cash in.

If you aren't yet following us on Twitter come do so and let's tweet:


Our Official Website is undergoing a major facelift and look for more details about it's exiting re-debut soon. It's going to be a great one-stop source for everything Shopping Savvy Mamas will want, need or look for.



Now this is a remarkable concept! And this Shopping Savvy Mama knows it works! I have cashed in on numerous rebates over the past few years and saved hundreds of dollars for online shopping I already do. It's simple, easy to start and why not put that extra cash in your pockets? Here are some of the Best Of The Best Cash Back Rebate sites you can join for FREE. Some even offer additional incentives to join, coupons you can reference to save even more including sometimes even free shipping. You are going to love these:


Mr. Rebates offers 2,000+ online retailers and a $5 signup bonus just for starting your account. It pays your rebates right to your Paypal and I have cashed in several times with their service. Come check it out and join in the Cash Back by clicking HERE.

One of the oldest Cash Back Rebate programs in existence is the Ebates program. There are many benefits to joining it by itself or as a group of programs you might participate in to maximize your Cash Back.

One of the coolest things about Ebates is you can earn cash back on eBay purchases making it great for eBay enthusiasts.

While there are others out there, these are my Top 3 Picks for Cash Back Rebates. I find they offer the best percentages, the best exclusive coupons and benefits that make joining each of them worthwhile. Belonging to more than one has it's benefits from a shopping perspective and each has unique retailers or benefits that make them worth checking out.

If you will be doing some online shopping for the upcoming Holidays, here's a great way to save some extra money on those purchases.

Wishing you a great October 1st and will be back soon with more Shopping Savvy tips!

The kiddoes being home presents more challenge in that area as all our grocery budgets are bound to go up during the Summer. I have a growing 9 year old who seems to always be hungry so I feel your pain!
