If this is your first time here, Molly’s Money is a regular series I write on this blog that includes ALL things personal finance – debt management, budgeting, home buying, savings, investment, etc. I am NOT a financial advisor, but I am married to one! These are just things that I have learned over the years as I struggled with my own personal finances and ultimately, became debt free in 2012. Got a question about money that you want answered? Leave it in the comments below or email me!
I am ALWAYS looking for new ways to save money… especially when I shop online. Actually, to be quite honest, if I am shopping online, it’s because I want to save money… I don’t think I’ve EVER paid full price for something when I shop or buy it online. Because, inevitably, somewhere there is a coupon code or a discount. That’s the beauty of the interwebs… you can search for savings pretty much everywhere.
I recently found out about ANOTHER awesome way to shop online that not only helps you find coupon codes and discounts, but ALSO helps you earn cash back on the stuff you’re already buying. It’s called ShopAtHome.com. WHAT?! Yes. I’m f’real. So, while this isn’t a “traditional” Molly’s Money post, I thought it fit in the category because it’s a tip on how to save AND earn money! Right? Right.
So, since today’s Black Friday (the busiest shopping day of the year) and since we are days away from Cyber Monday, I thought I’d share with y’all a little about the ShopAtHome.com, how it works and how you can use it to save and earn money when you’re doing your shopping this holiday season…
In the search box at the top of the page, simply type in any retailer that you’re looking for. Or, if you aren’t sure where you want to shop, the homepage will have featured retailers that have hot coupons or higher cash back deals.
So, for example, I wanted to look for some deals from my happy place: Target. I typed in Target in the search box and then all the results came up on the next screen… There was a deal on Target.com where I could get 4% Cash Back (it was 2.5%) and 50 ShopGold Rewards on my Target purchase just by clicking through from ShopAtHome.com. And there’s no code required… it’s automatic. (ShopGold Rewards are rewards you can rack up and redeem towards gift cards!)
They also have a tab that shows sites that are currently offering free shipping which is AWESOME when you’re shopping online! Huge plus. AND, it’s not just for clothing and retailers, they have an entire section for printable grocery and household coupons, too.
Once you find the coupon or deal you’re looking for, you just click through from the ShopAtHome portal / link and you’re on your merry way to saving and earn some serious cabbage.
That’s it. It’s seriously that easy and you can save and earn a TON of money if you do a lot of online shopping like I do!
