#1 MAKE A LIST AND CHECK IT TWICE !!!!! I am talking about WHO to buy for not WHERE to buy, as almost EVERY ONLINE RETAIL SHOP will be having sales and promotions
sit down in your PJS and grab a cup of coffee and GET READY TO SAVE BIG TIME!
I have done EXTENSIVE research on the cybermonday sites / sales etc and have found that
our FLBYU shopping TECHNIQUES in the past are STILL THE BEST WAY TO SHOP so here is how we do it.............
MAKE SURE YOU ARE USING A CREDIT CARD THAT REWARDS YOU FOR SHOPPING WHENEVER POSSIBLE
THIS DISCOVER CARD will reward you with $50 CASH BACK if you purchase $599 in 3 months **********HINT: pay your bills whenever possible with this card to easily reach your $599 and write a check instantly to cover so you have no finance charges 0% apr and 0% annual fee to start!
AMAZON SUPER STORE / SUPER CENTER LINK for CYBER MONDAY
***they also have a credit card and if approved you get $30 credit to your bill
search for "credit card" and choose AMAZON REWARDS I get GC from them EVERY MONTH or SO for my spending on this card! you can too!
REGISTER YOUR CASH BACK CREDIT CARDS HERE
this site is a CASH BACK / INCENTIVE to save for COLLEGE or OTHER SAVINGS ACCOUNT
I have my CVS card and a few of my CREDIT CARDS registered and when I use them I automatically acrue a small percentage back to RECOUP later. I do NOT suggest doing your shopping thru this site but instead just registering your cards for usage later........... I have other cash back sites listed below......... that I do recommend.
I also use AMERICAN EXPRESS, BASS PRO SHOPS & BARNES AND NOBLE to make my purchases and EARN GC that I use as gifts!
B&N (front page when clicking thru TOP RIGHT small pic , get $25 GC for successful sign up) BPS has $50 after first purchase, I have successfullly gotten BOTH of these GIFT CARDS for THIS CHRISTMAS!
CYBER MONDAY SITES there are several "sites" dedicated to cyber monday. I don't really find them helpful as most of them are just LISTS of sites you can shop thru. I offer an extensive listing of sites to shop thru that are reputable and established HERE but here are some strategies to help you save even more.
SIGN UP FOR THE FOLLOWING CASH BACK / POINTS PROGRAMS
tonight or today there are FIRST TIME USER BUCKS for the FIRST 3 PROGRAMS
if you are a "newbie" DO NOT DOWNLOAD anything from any of these sites as the programs will try to override each other and may cause you to NOT collect from any of them in the long run. YOU MAY BE OFFERED POINTS OR CREDITS TO DO THIS REFRAIN FROM THE TEMPTATION. :)
#1 MR REBATE
#5 MYPOINTS ***THIS IS NOT A CASH BACK BUT A POINTS FOR SHOPPING PROGRAM that you can cash in points for GIFT CERTIFICATES / GIFT CARDS to use later
#6 SWAGBUCKS ***THIS IS NOT A CASH BACK BUT A POINTS FOR SHOPPING PROGRAM that you can cash in points for GIFT CERTIFICATES / GIFT CARDS to use later
When you want to shop at a certain store tomorrow open all of these site windows on a different TAB and compare cash back / point rates **********BE CAREFUL USING CODES IN ADDITION TO THE SITES ABOVE unless the SITE LISTS THE COUPON THEY WILL NOT ALWAYS PAY YOUR CASH BACK when using an UNAUTHORIZED CODE
THE MOST RELIABLE CODES will be listed on the REBATE SITES!
AMAZON SUPER STORE / SUPER CENTER LINK for CYBER MONDAY IS HERE
updated cybermonday (started TONIGHT) and will continue thru tomorrow
they promise to be watching other sites and price matching, free S&H on many item
and some lightning deals, I will be shopping there on and off all day!
ALSO OPEN MY FLBYU SHOPPING PAGE HERE if you do not have time or energy to use the cash back programs , you can always help me by shopping thru the links I have listed, I do get "nickels" when people click thru and shop thru my links
IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO TRY USING CODES in conjuction with my links
feel free to try, it won't hurt either of us! :) other CODE SITE:
http://www.retailmenot.com/cybermonday/ NOT AS RELIABLE but often has a larger amount of codes ^^^^ ALSO you can GOOGLE for a code
example: GAP+ COUPON+ CODE+2009 you may also get expireds but worth a shot if you found NOTHING thru the sites I have listed
CHECK YOUR EMAIL for private offers from sites you may have purchased from in the past
I had a few of them that ROCKED! one of which you may want to check out NOW for future if you haven't signed up for notifications is MAgAZINE.COM I often get $5 off any purchase from them which makes my purchase almost FREE , AS I SHOP AND FIND THE DEALS I will be posting to this blog
BOOKMARK IT and also sending out GDAS via email and Facebook
so stay tuned and ENJOY cybermonday !
