It’s that of year again! We’ve got less than 100 days until Christmas, and I’m already in full shopping mode! Actually, I shop all year, which is the secret to saving big time on gifts! Be sure to bookmark and check our Christmas gifts page daily for the best deals!
Christmas shouldn’t be about going broke and being stressed. It’s about rejoicing in what the true meaning of Christmas is, and spending time with the ones you love. That said, I realize buying gifts is part of it and many are already wondering how they will afford it, so here are a few tips:
Shop All Year – Start NOW!
Don’t pass up that 75% off rack because you think you don’t need anything. At least half of my gift stockpile is clearance deals where I’ve saved as much as 90%! I shop all year long for holidays, birthdays, etc… – Usually in early December I’ll inventory my gift stockpile and make a final shopping list.
For those who have been with me for a while, you know that I love shopping online for TWO reasons.
#1 – Awesome Deals
The deals online are ridiculously good and just seem to get better and better…FAR better than what we see in stores. The closer we get to the holidays, the better they’ll get, so be sure you’re signed up on the mailing list or following us on Facebook so you can stay up-to-date!
#2 – Free MONEY!
You can actually get PAID for shopping online, and the number of people who still don’t know and do this baffles me! I get FREE money for buying something I was going to anyway…it’s a no-brainer (I earned $182 during Christmas last year) – And it’s EASY – Simply login into your account, find the store you were going to shop at, click through their link, and shop as you normally would. This is the EASIEST money I make online, period! I shop through the three programs below. Be sure you’re signed up for all three as each one has different stores and cash back offers!
Cash back sites I use and highly recommend:
- QuickRewards – LOVE that I can withdraw my free cash back for Disney gift cards 😉
- MyPoints: I just click emails & take advantage of my favorite offers. Read my full review HERE
- Sunshine Rewards – Get a FREE $2.50 bonus…exclusive to Saving Every Day readers (thanks Sunshine!!)
- Ebates – They provide coupon codes & discounts for hundreds of stores, plus you’ll get a FREE $10 gift card for joining.
