Coupons & Samples & Checks… oh my! August 2011

Ebates August 2011 checkEbates

I got a check from Ebates this month for $17.34. Ebates is a site where you can earn cash-back on your online purchases. I’m a big fan of cash-back shopping and can’t understand why everybody doesn’t do it, it only takes an extra minute. For more information about Ebates, you can check out my page here. Are you earning cash-back on your shopping??? If not, you should try it out, it’s super easy.

*Also, Ebates is offering new members a choice of $10 gift cards or $5 into your Ebates account when you sign-up and make a cash-back purchase of $25 or more—not too shabby. 😉

Cash Crate August 2011 checkCash Crate

This month I received a check for $21.84 from Cash Crate. I love Cash Crate, my favorite way to earn from them is the daily check in’s. You can earn 3¢ every day just for checking in and if you check in every day in the calendar month, you can earn a 50¢ bonus. Of course there are many other ways to earn with them, that one is just my favorite—it’s almost too easy. For more information about Cash Crate, you can check out my post here.

Coupons and Samples August 2011Mailbox Goodies

A little light on the mail this month, almost nothing compared to last month’s haul, but I’m still grateful. I haven’t been signing up for as many samples lately, so that explains why I’m not getting very much. This month I received:

A Fresh Express salad bag clip, coupon for a free bag of Fresh Express salad and 3 coupons for $1 off a bag of salad. I received these from Vocalpoint, which has free samples and coupons every now and again for it’s members.

Aveda smooth infusion trial sized shampoo, conditioner and style-prep smoother. I think these were from liking their facebook page and signing up for the free sample. I’ve never actually tried any of their products before, so this pretty cool.

Fred Meyer reward of $7.85 plus:  coupon for $2 off $2+ health & beauty care purchase (possibly a free item), coupon for 20% shoes, coupon for $3 off $15+ apparel & accessories purchase, $2 off $2+ school supplies & stationary purchase (possibly another free item) and a coupon for $2 off $2+ bread or pastry purchase (possibly yet another free item).


Did you get some good stuff this month?

    • This is actually my 1st check from them, I haven’t been very consistent. :-(
      But I am expecting many more in the future. :-)

    • It is really convenient, especially when you can end up paying less. Between online coupon codes, free shipping and cash-back, many things can be cheaper online than they are at the stores.
