3 Ways to Save Money Shopping Online

So we all like shopping, just admit it. It makes us feel better and because of the beautiful invention we call the Internet, we don’t even need to leave our rooms to shop. Online shopping can be dangerous but why not make and save some money while you’re at it?

1.     Student Discounts

College isn’t only about studying and partying but also about becoming knowledgeable about how to take advantage of all the free perks. You won’t be a college student forever so it’s best to use your ID for more than just expensive college food.

Making an account with Unidays.com will give you up to 20 percent off every time you shop online! These discounts apply to stores like Urban Outfitters, Boohoo, Asos, Missguided, and more!

2.     Ebates

Ebates.com is awesome because you receive money back just for shopping online!

You can earn up to 40% cash back! However, most stores I shop at will range from about 4.0 % to 10.0% cash back and although it doesn’t seem like a lot, it will add up. Plus, I don’t even care how much money I get back, I’m getting paid to shop online!

All you have to do is make a free account and when you’re shopping online remember to visit Ebates, click on the cash back link provided and you will be directed back to your shopping cart. A check or direct deposit to your bank account is sent to you every 3 months.

Ebates will also list online coupon codes and let you know of any secret sale! Ebates works with stores like Sephora, Macy’s, Bloomingdales, EBay, Amazon, and 1,000 other stores.

3.     Ebay/Amazon

Both these websites save my bank account! Always check Ebay.com & Amazon.com before purchasing a product in store or online. For example, I always order my phone cases and technology accessories through Ebay. You can find same products for a quarter of the price!

Tip: When ordering through Ebay or Amazon check the location of the seller. The closer they are to your destination, the sooner you may receive your product!
