Things To Do On a Budget!

Have you ever thought to yourself, “I would really like to do something different for date night, or this weekend, or with the kids, but it’s just too expensive!”  Then this post is for YOU!  After my divorce, money was very tight, therefore, family outings were very rare.  We had to budget EVERYTHING, and I do mean everything.  I stumbled upon two wonderful websites one day that changed all that forever.

The first site I want to tell you about is called Ebates.  If you aren’t using Ebates then you are LITERALLY throwing money away!!  Ebates is an online site that PAYS YOU TO SHOP ONLINE.  I don’t know about you guys but the easier I can get my shopping done the better and Ebates allows me to do that.  It has partnered with thousands of sites to pay you to shop through the ebates site.  Example:  I want to buy a laptop at Walmart.  I would first login to my ebates account, search for Walmart in the search bar, then click the “start shopping” button.  This will create a ticket for my shopping trip and automatically take me to the Walmart site.  I proceed to load up my cart with the laptop and probably 4 to 5 other items that I probably don’t need but that I found on sale and go to the checkout.  I pay for my items and ebates records it then sends me a cash back refund on the next check cut.  Every couple of months they tally what you have banked, usually anywhere from 1% up to 10% depending on the site you shopped on, and they will either send you a check for that amount, pay you the amount directly to your paypal account, or you can choose to have it sent by Amazon gift cards.  Either way, it’s FREE MONEY!  If you haven’t signed up for Ebates, WHY NOT???  It’s FREE to sign up and right now if you click >>>HERE<<< you will get a bonus $10 once you have used ebates on your first shopping trip!

The other wonderful site I want to introduce you to is called Groupon.  This site is absolutely genius!  You sign up, again for FREE, for an account, plug in your city or if you are traveling you can enter the city you will be traveling to, and hit search.  You can narrow down your search results by “Things To Do”, “Lodging”, “Dining”, “Spas and Beauty”, etc., etc., etc.  You get the idea.  Anytime we want to have a night out or we are traveling I start on Groupon.  I search for places to stay, things to do, places to eat, whatever we are wanting, I search for it.  You can save MASSIVE amounts of money by using this site.  BUT, the best way I utilize BOTH sites and get the maximum amount of savings is to

1.Login to your ebates account

2. Search for Groupon

3. Click the “Shop now” button, it creates your ticket for you and records your shopping trip.

Not only are you saving money by getting things cheaper on Groupon but you are also getting cash back for doing it through your ebates account FIRST!!!  So, why haven’t you signed up for Groupon yet?? WHY ARE YOU THROWING MONEY AWAY????   If you haven’t signed up for Groupon then click >>>>HERE<<<< and hop to it!!  Don’t do another date night or family night out without checking on Groupon for something new to do first.  You might just find that you can do different and more interesting things that you’ve never thought of before!!
