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.

Rebate Rewards

I just added Rebate Rewards to the Freebies page. I’ve been using them for about a month. Right now, they are one of my favorite sites to get items for free after rebate. I’ve received almost $300 in all sorts of things.

I just ordered my fourth foot rest. I love them! They have so many uses. I also got an apron with a skull on it, a fairy lantern craft kit, a back stretcher with posture corrector, cocktail shaker, thermometer, UV sanitizer, and more.

Payouts are done through a digital check via checkbook.io. It is then deposited electronically to your bank.

So Many Great Rebates

If you’ve been following my social media, you’ll notice that I’ve been getting a lot more free items lately. I get packages all the time from Amazon, and sometimes another retailer mixed in there too. I’ve been really fortunate to come across all of these great deals.

I used to write reviews in exchange for free items. I did this for almost a year, and obtained quite a few useful items during that time. October of 2020, my Amazon account was wiped. That means that I can no longer write reviews. Rightfully so, it was against their terms. I’m not upset about it. I do miss the higher value items and the sites full of things available. But, I thought for sure I wouldn’t be able to get any more free merchandise at all. I was so wrong.

Since I’ve stopped doing reviews, I’ve come across more sites and Facebook groups that do no require them. Pretty much every single day, I order at least one item. They actually offer a lot of useful things too.

Some of the things I’ve recently received includes a bracelet, necklace, back stretcher, posture corrector, stretching bands, tote bag, 5 gallon growing pots, large makeup organizer, dress, jaw exercisers, shirt, gaming microphone, rechargeable lighter, pet food bowls, mousepad, a vacuum, and so much more.

Not bad for just purchasing items, then getting most of my money back shortly afterwards. Most of the time, I get all but taxes and PayPal fees. Sometimes, that’s covered too. There’s a few tedious things involved, like providing your order number, advising when received, and keeping your own records so you don’t lose track. But, it’s all worth it.

If you want to learn more about getting free items using rebates, visit the Freebies page. If you are already familiar with this process, check my list of sites to see if there’s any you haven’t tried yet. I will be adding more soon.

I Love These Coupons Emails

I really do love getting these emails from Coupons.com.

This site have always been a great source for printing coupons. Most people don’t know that you can also link loyalty cards to your account. I have my Giant Food connected. You can then add digital coupons to your card through the site or the app. I always add all of them, just in case. Then these random emails pop up in my mailbox, like an added bonus.

Coupons.com is also another one of those sites that I use to scan my receipts. While some stores are linked, others are not. This includes Dollar General, Target, Walmart, and several more. So you’ll have to upload the receipt in this case. You also need to know the coupon that is being redeemed first because you’ll need to scan those items. It’s a little extra work, but you’re getting paid for it.

Why not sign up, if you haven’t already. If you have, make sure you’re taking advantage of all the savings.
