This is my number one tip for saving big! I've been using them for over 4 years now and let me you tell the savings is REAL. I get a check every quarter for shopping online. The way it works is you sign up for ebates. Then when you go to shop online you go first to ebates then you search for your store you want to shop. Click on their link to go to the store and that's it! You will earn a rebate for any purchases and they send them out quarterly. (So in the New Year expect a Big Fat Check!)
The best part is you can still use coupon codes! So don't worry about not saving on the actual site. Today I did a purchase on Kohls.com. I used a 20% off coupon and Kohl's Cash plus had free shipping. Then I earned 3% cashback from Ebates!
This is the one time of year I put my email on various websites. Companies send out coupons to their email subscribers. The best part is come January you can unsubscribe. It is an easy way to find out if your favorite shopping sites are doing any big promotions. Today I received a 20% off Kohl's right in my inbox. I had Kohl's cash sitting so I knew it was a good time to jump on my wish list.

Many bloggers share the best deals that sell out fast on Facebook. (I will be sharing some on my page.) Money Saving Mom shares great tips as well as Passionate Penny Pincher. These deals usually sell out fast so don't wait. I've had great luck with shopping this way in the past.
