I’m all about making my life easier, with 2 rowdy kids a new husband and house, plus a little one on the way, it’s the only way I stay sane! Now, Christmas time is the busiest time of the year for me personally, because I’ve got kids, but also for the blog, I feel like I need to share as many good deals with you as I can find. So I wanted to share 3 of my favorite services that help me around Christmas Time:
Ebates: I am a huge online shopper! Most of my Christmas Shopping is done online (with a majority of it down on Amazon). I use Ebates to earn cash back. It’s like getting paid to buy the stuff I was gonna buy anyway! Anytime I place an order online, I sign into Ebates first and then click on through to the site that I want to buy from. I make my purchase and within 48 hours my bonus is credited to my account. So far this year, I’ve earned over $225 just from Ebates and just for purchasing things that I would normally purchase.
Amazon Prime: As mentioned above, I do almost 90% of my Christmas shopping on Amazon. I just love their service and quick shipping. But it’s because I actually pay to be an Amazon Prime Member. Amazon Prime is priced at $79.00 a year and gets you FREE 2-Day shipping on almost everything you buy on Amazon! I have used Amazon Prime for years and will continue to do so, it’s the best $79.00 I’ve spent all year! Plus, the best part is that you can a Free One Month Trial here.
UPS MyChoice: If you are buying anything online, you’ll want to make sure that you belong to UPS MyChoice. UPS actually sends you delivery notices of when to expect your packages. For example, if I purchase something on Amazon, I will get a UPS MyChoice Delivery Alert the day before it’s going to be delivered. If I’m not going to be home, I have the option of having it put on hold, delivered elsewhere or arrange a pick up at the UPS facility.
Bonus Service: Swagbucks – It’s how I get all of my FREE Amazon Gift Cards!
