Okay for my second “tried and true” money making site. I love Mr. Rebates. I have been using them since 2006. Mr. Rebates gives you a rebate on almost everything I buy online. If I find a deal posted somewhere I always go to Mr. Rebates and use their link to get the deal. That way I will get the deal plus the rebate. They even track coupons for you so I can add that as well. They have a ton of sites that offer rebates (even ebay). I also use them around Christmas to get magazine subscriptions – they offer a 25% rebate for those!
As an example, I recently saw a posting for a 90% clearance sale at JCPenny online. I went to Mr. Rebates and saw there was also a 10% off & free shipping coupon for an order over $25 and a 3% rebate. I found $250 in stuff that I wanted that was marked down to $25. I then used the coupon code and got another $2.50 off plus free shipping. Then Mr. Rebates gave me $0.75 back. I ended up with $250 of clothes shipped to my house for $21.75.
Another example is our carseat. We wanted to get a Britax, but they are so expensive! The Boulevard is $320 at our local BRU and they would add 7.6% tax on that making it $345. Ouch. But, they are so safe! So, I kept my eyes open for a deal. Sure enough, babyage marked down the discontinued print to $230. It was $8 for shipping, but Mr. Rebates had a coupon for that, there is no tax online, and there was a 3% rebate. So, I was able to get the carseat shipped to me for $223.10. I saved over $100!
It does add up. There are many sites with 10-25% off and the coupon codes are great!
So far this year I have made $58.47 with Mr. Rebates. There is no spam and it takes only the extra amount of time to click on the store link through them when I purchase something. For me that is about 10 seconds/purchase.
