How to shop online for cheaper

Yesterday I found something that I had to share. With Christmas only a month and a half away, if you haven’t started thinking about shopping, now’s the time.

I found a site yesterday while shopping for new shoes online. The site is MrRebates.com. Yes, I’ve included my referral ID in that URL. You’ll see why in a second. Let me cut to the chase and describe the big picture.

Mr. Rebates makes money because they have a big list of web sites where you can go to shop. Each time you click through Mr. Rebates and buy something, they get a percentage of your purchase price. Lucky for you though, Mr. Rebates will give you a chunk of that percentage back. On my shoe purchase, I received 5% back. On top of that, Mr. Rebates gave me $10 just for signing up.

As an added bonus, Mr. Rebates keeps a current list of coupons for most of the sites that it lists, so you save even more. Yesterday, I saved 20% off the purchase price of my shoes.

But wait… There’s more: For every person you refer to MrRebates.com, you will receive 20% of their cash back money (at no cost to your friend of course).

Last but not least, if you’re Canadian there’s the added bonus of our strong Canadian dollar right now. This morning, 1 CAD = 1.10022 USD.

Purchase price minus coupon discount minus cash back minus $10 sign-up bonus minus referral bonus minus USD exchange

It’s practically stealing!

Last year I did about 60% of my Christmas shopping online. It was quick and relatively easy if you start early. You get to avoid malls and now, you can enjoy some of the cheapest prices on the net. This year, I’m going to try and do 100% of my shopping online. You should try it too. Why not start your Christmas shopping today. Go visit MrRebates.com.

  1. instead of wasting money on junk that no one wants for xmas, maybe donate to the food bank instead?

    ofcoz you don’t get any referral cash for that. 🙂

  2. After realizing that there isn’t very many online stores that support Canadian shipping, I haven’t spent as much time as I’d hoped shopping through Mr. Rebates. Ah well.
