Back to School Shopping Made Easy with Eabtes
It’s that time of the year again. The time when the summer fun comes to an end and the back to school shopping and preparing begins. I remember the dreaded days when I would drag my kids from store to store while trying to fight the crowd of other B2S shoppers. Thankfully, those days are over. Well sorta.
As a kid I always looked forward to getting new shoes, notebooks and some silly pencils with crazy eyes that I could show off to my friends. As a parent, that joy has slipped away as fast as my cash during back to school shopping season. Until this year that is. This year I switched up my game plan and decided to try out something a little different. I found a website called Ebates and if you’ve never heard of it, you’re in for a treat!
Ebates is the pioneer and leader of online cash back shopping that pays members every time they shop online as well as provide them with the best coupons and deals online. If you’re all like “yeah right” like I was, I am here to let you know that it is true!
Since my oldest is going to be thirteen in October she is the hardest to shop with. We would spend hours upon hours looking for the perfect shirt or the right kind of jeans. This year all I had to do was sign into my Ebates account and let her go on the sites herself. Of course I had a good look into her shopping carts at the end, but that’s the easy part! Ebates keeps track of all of your purchase history and gives you cash back based on your purchases. And as you can see, they are store that you are already shopping at anyway.
It’s really easy to look at the best deals and coupons while making money doing it. I spent $300 and got everything both girls needed to kick-off their school year right. I was even able to grab the extras they needed for their classes. Here are a few of their favorite outfits:
Let’s stop buying kids everything they want and more of what they actually need instead. I was able to get them each 6 outfits that they can mix and match to make many different combinations, 2 pair of shoes each, backpacks, lunchbox, all of the essential school supplies, a few cute hair accessories and the recommended teacher’s supplies. WINNING! The best part is, I made money doing so and there’s an app for shopping on the go.
