Tips to Save Money Shopping Online

Did you think perhaps the title seems a bit of an oxymoron? I used to think so too. I only shopped online when desperation took over during a holiday or a birthday and I had to rush a gift overnight. But the internet is a different place now. Sure, you have to watch out for scams now more than ever. But good sites have also emerged. Sites that can help us conquer our fear of paying too much when shopping online. You can save money shopping online for things you need to buy anyway. Here is one for you to start with.

Rebate Sites

Rebate sites allow you to save money shopping online by rewarding you with cash back for purchasing at your favorite online stores. The ones I've come across have over 1500 stores available, so you’re most likely going to find the one you’re looking for.

So how do you save money shopping online this way? Rebate sites give you a percentage back on the products you purchase at stores via their website. They get a commission for the purchases you make through them and then they share it with the you the consumer. Then, about four times a year or more, they send you a check or credit your PayPal account; some will even donate to a charity of your choice. There are also incentives just for signing up. I got a $5.00 bonus when I joined. Plus the program I am with sent me a check earlier than I was scheduled to get it. Not to mention on certain days they offer double cash back at certain stores. And they send out e-mail updates that alert you to which stores are having sales and offering double cash back that week. And if there is a coupon code available, they show you those too-another great way to save money shopping online! Yes, sometimes it's a dollar here, 50 cents there. But hey, to me that’s like using a coupon at the store. I have more money in my pocket at the end of the trip if I use it than if I didn't.

So I started out getting some towels I needed and ink I ran out of for my printer. A good beginning. But it doesn’t end there. I soon discovered I could save money shopping online for car rentals, booking vacations, buying pet food, purchasing student textbooks and buying Groupons. And I earned a rebate just for doing my taxes online this year. The big thing to remember is to always check your rebate site first before you make an online purchase to see if the store you want is on it. Then it's on to enjoying your savings. Happy shopping!
