5 Tips for Super Savvy Shoppers

I love shopping. I especially love to shop for others and I give a lot of thought to the gifts that I give.

Take good notes.

I use the Notes app on my phone and have a list going for everyone that I buy gifts for. When that person mentions something throughout the year, I immediately add it to my notes. This makes birthday and holiday shopping a breeze because I know exactly what to buy for each person on my list.

Know what you want.

This is key to any good shopping trip. Do some research and figure out what you want to buy. Once you've done that, you can figure out where to get it.

Know what a good price is.

Research is a really important part of shopping. You can save a lot of money by knowing what a good price is on an item that you want. I look up prices on anything that I buy and before I buy it, I know what I plan to spend.

Stick to your list.

This is extremely important. It is easy to make impulse purchases online. Sometimes if you spend a little more, you might get a better deal. However if what you are buying isn't on your list, then that deal might not be so great.

5 Tips for Super Savvy ShoppersDon't shop without Ebates.

Ebates is this amazing website where you can shop at over 2500 big-name brands like Macy's, Groupon, Zulily, Tom's, Madewell, Jet.com, Best Buy, and lots of other places that you probably already shop at. I have been shopping through Ebates for the past few years and honestly, I cannot believe that I didn't use it before. I missed out on some great savings. All you have to do is click through links found on the Ebates site or install the Ebates Browser Extension Cash Back Button as I did. This makes it so easy to get cash back from the shopping you were already planning to do.

5 Tips for Super Savvy ShoppersGet the Ebates Browser Extension Cash Back Button

If you love Ebates as much as I do, then you will want to add this FREE cash-back button to your browser. The Ebates Browser Extension Cash Back Button helps you automatically apply coupons and receive cash back on your online shopping purchases by alerting you when a deal is available at the store where you are shopping. The button will also apply the best coupons when you checkout and alert you if you can get a lower price elsewhere. It is super easy to add and takes less than a minute to have it working.

This extension has helped over 3 million Ebates customers save money at some of my favorite stores like Lululemon, Sephora, Target, eBay, Walmart, Nordstrom Rack, Expedia and many more.  There are 2500+ big-name brands to choose from. With the cashback button, you'll never miss a great Ebates deal PLUS you can even get up to 15% cash back along with special coupons/deals when shopping online with Ebates.
