Tomorrow is Cyber Monday – here are a few tips to get you prepared
Definition: The term Cyber Monday refers to the Monday immediately following Black Friday. It is believed to be the ceremonial kick-off of the holiday online shopping season in the United States between Thanksgiving Day and Christmas. While Black Friday is associated with traditional brick-and-mortar stores, “Cyber Monday” symbolizes a busy day for online retailers
That being said – let’s take some steps to get ready for the big day:
Be sure to sign up for the cash-back sites if you haven’t already:
What is Ebates? Ebates is a cash back site that is FREE to join and FREE to use. Once you sign up you will be able to begin earning immediately. When you are ready to shop, you just type in the store you will be shopping at. It will bring up the store and tell you what % you will get back. The site will also let you know about any coupon codes available. Then, just click through to the store FROM THE EBATES SITE and shop like your normally do – and when you buy something you earn cash back in your account. It’s super easy!
The best part: They pay you in cash, not points or miles, and no rebate forms are required! You will be paid every 3 months as long as you’ve accumulated $5.01 …. if you’ve earned less, it will roll over to the next check! (bonus rewards that you get for signing up ($5) will not count toward the $5.01) SIGN UP HERE to be ready for tomorrow, and you will get $5 just for joining!
Shop at Home is another cash back site. They also offer cash back at thousands of retailers. The main difference between Shop at Home & Ebates is that they pay MONTHLY instead of quarterly, however your minimum balance must be $20 to receive a check. I highly recommend BOTH companies because they differ in their % back. For example: If you’re going to shop at Gap today, Shop at Home may be offering 10% back and Ebates may only offer 3% back. Shop at home pays cash too, not points or miles.
I have received emails letting me know that there will be HOT COUPON CODES + SALES at the Daily Deal Sites.
Be sure to sign up for EVERSAVE and GROUPON if you haven’t already – many times the hot deals have limits and will go FAST. I’m sure the other sites will also have deals, I will post as they become available.
I hope you are able to check in here often tomorrow – I plan on having giveaways throughout the day. Many of them will be FAST giveaways (1hr) with a few 24hr giveaways. You can keep checking the site – or you can follow along on FACEBOOK – thats where the active discussions will take place….and many giveaways
