Shopping With Ebates

18 Sep

Anyone who has known me for a while knows that I’m more of an instant gratification shopper. I like to go to a store and come home with my purchases. Waiting for something to be delivered drives me crazy. Days spent looking out the door every time I think I hear a truck.

Alas, I have found something that makes the wait worthwhile.

Enter Ebates!

At first I thought it sounded too good to be true. They’re going to pay me for things I was going to buy anyway? Yeah right, what’s the catch?

But there isn’t a catch. All you have to do is go to the Ebates site first and follow the link to where ever you want to shop. I’ve found that almost all of the places I buy from offer cash back deals and it’s become second nature for me to hit Ebates before I do my shopping.


So how does it work?

Like I said, you go to the Ebates site first and find the store you’re looking for. Once you follow the link you shop like you would normally shop. That’s it, nothing else needed from you. You’re deals will automatically be credited to your account.

You can even download the Ebates Cash Back Button so you never forget to look for a deal. It just sits on your browser and when you visit a site it’ll let you know if there’s a deal and if you need to do anything to get it. No more forgetting to earn your cash back.


Stores offer different percentages of cash back and there are Daily Doubles where they offer double cash back for a limited time. I’ve enjoyed between 1.5% and 20% cash back. Sure, the 1.5% doesn’t sound like a lot it adds up over the course of a few months.


Checks are sent out four times a year as long as you have earned a minimum ten dollars.

Since I started using Ebates last November I’ve earned well over $100. That’s an extra hundred plus dollars for things I was buying anyway. It has given me a nice little treat every now and again.

How can you get started?

All you need to do is sign up and you can start earning money today. You can use the handy little button on the right side of this page too.

It’s a nice way to earn a little money while yo do your holiday shopping!

Historic Kennett Square

11 Jan


We moved to The Hill almost two and a half years ago. We’re just a mile or two from the heart of Historic Kennett Square and virtually never go there.


I have no idea. I guess I never knew how many great things Kennett had to offer and never bothered to find out. Sure, it’s the Mushroom Capitol of the World (no, really it is) but Kennett Square has so much more to offer than that.

Back in November my blogging buddy over at Confessions of a Stay-At-Home Mom put together an amazing night of fun, food and friends right here in Kennett. I wasn’t about to miss a blogging event that was literally right in my back yard.

I figured there were a few good restaurants in town and I’ve heard people talking about some of the shops but I had no idea just how much was there. Kennett Square isn’t by any means a large town but it has A LOT to offer.

As you walk the quaint streets of Historic Kennett you see shop after shop selling interesting and beautiful merchandise. The perfect gift for any friend or family member is waiting behind one of those doors. That conversation piece for your home or captivating accessory is within your reach here in Historic Kennett Square.

It’s more than just cool stores and eateries.

What has struck me the most about Historic Kennett is the people. All the shop owners and employees are so friendly, they genuinely care about the people who walk through their doors. Their shops are warm and inviting making for that extra shopping experience that is missing from the chain stores you find in the mall.

After my blogging adventure in Historic Kennett I went back.

What do you get the parent’s who literally have everything? How about a wine tasting from Flickerwood?

When my Mom needed to exchange her Pandora bracelet and buy a few more charms the first place that came to mind was Bove Jewelers.

An adorable little outfit for a friend’s new baby from bedbugz.

I could go on all day about all the cool stores in Historic Kennett Square. I haven’t even gotten into the yummy places for each meal but I can say you won’t have a hard time finding something to eat there too.

Have you visited Historic Kennett Square? What did you think of all it had to offer?
