Benjamin Franklin, the innovative founding father and legendary oracle of frugality, once said...


"Human felicity is produced not so much by great pieces of good fortune that seldom happen, as by little advantages that occur every day"

How to Save 50% or More - Make Every Day Cyber Monday!

When you shop online you can stack cachback and coupon deals to save HUGE amounts off your purchases. I often save as much as 50% and usually get free shipping too.

Sometimes it feels like stealing candy from a baby. You can't do this technique offline.

I'll often begin online shopping by signing into my free Ebates account. Sign up by following the below link for extra special deals.

Ebates is the leading cashback and deals site on the web. I search for the item or retailer using the top search box on their site. The percents off and other promos can be very juicy, especially today! It's fun finding all those huge percents off.

Ebates currently has some really great coupons such as 50% OFF any order at certain retailers...FREE shipping...AND they'll often give you 5% - 10% extra cashback on top of other promotions + a special bonus just for signing up free here today!

Save huge at thousands of other favorite retailers too. BUT also consider stacking the savings and cashback awards by paying with a cashback credit card when you checkout on the retailer's website. I usually use my Discover Card for extra juicy percentage off my orders in addition to the savings Ebates automatically awards and tracks when I start shopping there!

So by stacking the cashback and deals like this it is not difficult to frequently score savings of 50%+ with free shipping too! (but be sure and pay off your balance every month...I NEVER pay interest!)

Think about it. When you go through all the hassles of offline shopping..the traffic, the lines, the cramped aisles, ect. you don't get the same level of savings. Offline percent off deals are often a mirage or not nearly as big as what you can get online and by stacking cashback sites and payment via awards cards. So bigger savings, gas savings, time savings, and less stress are all reasons I much prefer online shopping, particularly today which is "Cyber Monday".

Take one minute to open you free Ebates account here and get a bonus and some really juicy deals today
