Rebating And Promo Codes

I haven’t posted much lately and only moved a few things around recently. You’re welcome LOL.

Amongst my latest ventures, I’ve been learning all about Amazon promotional codes. The great part is that I’m also saving up to 100% off in the process. I know, I was already sparkling with savings and a crazy rebater before. But, I thought it was time to mix it up and branch out a bit more. I’m always super saving regardless. While rebating and promo codes both help save a tremendous amount of money on a great mix of items, I’ve learned they are definitely very different realms.

From what I have gathered so far, using a promotional code seems to be a much quicker process overall. It’s applied at checkout when you place your order for the specified item. I have found several groups on Facebook that will post deals that include promotional codes. When they do, you have to move quick or you’ll miss the deal. Sometimes, orders that seemed successful, end of cancelling. That’s pretty much it.

I feel that when you rebate, you have a little more time to think things through. This is good since there’s a bit more to consider. There’s wonderful third party companies and agents to work with, and also scammers to be careful of. I joined all sorts of Facebook groups that have been extremely helpful in a lot of ways. Usually, you buy the item up front for the full price, then you would need to retrieve your refund later. In some cases, you may have to chase it down a bit. There’s specific steps involved that must be followed in order to qualify for your rebate. These steps may vary depending on who you are working with.

Either way I go about it, I’m saving a ton of money. During pretty much any shopping that I do anymore, I always remind myself that I can get so many things that I’m looking at for either free or massively discounted elsewhere. I just have to consider the extra work, weighed against the end cost.

If you’d like to keep up with the items that I get every day, follow me on my Instagram and join my Facebook group.

*FYI: There’s a lot more involved information regarding rebating and using promotional codes that I really wanted to get into here. However, in an effort to keep this post minimal, I have omitted the extra details. I will be elaborating more at a later time via a post or a page update. Please check back for more.

Thank You

I wanted to send out a quick thank you to everyone.

I’ve noticed a recent increase in the amount of traffic on my site. It’s been a while. This is really exciting to me, especially while watching the transformation of how much things have changed.

I originally created this site voluntarily to help promote local bands and businesses. That was many years ago. I thought it would be a great platform to display their information, promotional ads, and photos. I also did a lot of photo shoots for them, handed out promotional materials, made merchandise in my home, and even managed a few bands as well. It was fun, interesting, educational, emotional, and sometimes aggravating. But overall, I’m grateful for the experiences.

Why did it all end?

Eventually, I started a new job and had to cut back on my volunteering. I had just started to actually make a few dollars and take on some more serious projects, however I had to rethink my life. I needed the income for my family and they needed my time with them. Nearly all things outside of that had stopped.

At that point, I should have closed my site. I’m a hoarder and I didn’t want to give it up. I liked having my own site to do whatever I wanted. I had no idea what that was for several years, so it laid dormant. Every so often, I would move a few things around or post a note that it was under construction, but that would be it. I think I tried a new direction once but that went nowhere.

Where to go from here?

Just recently, I decided to massive change the content. Of course, I kept some tidbits of the original LadySkullshine Entertainment site in the archives and the About Me page. I’ve shifted gears to helping others to save money and to make a few bucks. I also have a page displaying the coins that I have for sale on eBay. There is now a page dedicated to the awareness of certain conditions. This exists because they greatly affect my life in one way or another. I plan to add a lot more content when I have more time.

I often toss around the idea of posting things or not. I wonder if anyone cares what I have to say or share. Then I get the notifications that tell me that others are reading and liking my posts. That means a lot to me. It inspires me to continue sharing whatever the next adventure brings.

Again, I really want to say thank you and that I am so very grateful.
