Saving Money with Ebates, Groupon & LivingSocial

It being tax return season, well if you’re anything let me who did theirs early, I already got my return, get to feel rich for a little bit.. Actually, I had to split the earnings with the ex, lol.. But anyways, we always went crazy with it. This time around, I want to actually get stuff we need and get the kids some great birthday & Christmas gifts, so when their birthdays and Christmas come around and I’m feeling all broke and junk, we all know the feeling. So let me share with you some really awesome sites & deals where you can earn money & get cash back online! You really cant beat that! There’s tons of sites for this, but these are the three that I use the most. You need to check out Ebates, Groupon & LivingSocial.

First off, is heaven sent! Ebates works for all (well most) online stores. Joining Ebates is always free – you’ll never pay us anything. And four times a year or more, we’ll mail you a Big Fat Check, or transfer the money to your PayPal account if you’d prefer. We can even send the money to your favorite charity. All 100% free. There’s also a E-bates button you can add to the toolbar of your browser and it will start flashing, when whatever site you’re on has a cash back deal on it, then when you click it. It will be activated and you’re set to save money!

I’ve already been sent at least $5 so far being a member! It’s pretty awesome. I use it while on Amazon, I think I use it the most when I’m on Groupon, LivingSocial & The Children’s Place. When they’re having their awesome clerance sales on clothes for the kids! You have to check the site often, sometimes they have DOUBLE cash back deals.

Like currently they’re doing 6.0% cash back for Groupon & LivingSocial which is awesome! Have you ever used Groupon or LivingSocial? I love both of those sites, they’re both giving you awesome deals on sale for a few days.

First step is to join all three websites ( or and Ebates) & install the Ebates toolbar button. This will save you lots of time, instead of having to go to the ebates store. When you’re searching on google the Ebate’s E will show up next to the links. Super cool & easy. Also if you go to websites, it pops up at the top. Like it does below!

Okay now that you’re done all of that, you simply click the “activate cash back” up at the top of the site. It’s that easy!

LivingSocial is the local marketplace to buy and share the best things to do in your city and beyond. With unique and diverse offerings each day, we inspire members to discover everything from weekend excursions to one-of-a kind events and experiences to exclusive gourmet dinners to seasonal family outings and more.

When you refer a friend, you both get $10 Deal Bucks which you can put toward your first order or any order. So once you friend spends at least $20 you both get $10 Deal Cash. Sweet right?

Groupon‘s mission is to become the world’s commerce operating system. By connecting buyers and sellers through price and discovery, we have the opportunity to become one of the world’s essential companies, a daily habit for our customers and merchant partners.

You can earn $10 in Groupon Bucks whenever you refer a friend to Groupon and they buy their first deal within the first 72 hours.

That’s pretty simple right? I want to share this post with you, to show you how easy it is! I’ve been a member of ebates since 2013, but I just recently started using it. I currently have earned $5 back. I’ve order items here and there for the kids and I from both LivingSocial & Groupon. I plan on getting some items for the kids for Christmas! There’s some really great deals going on!

    I have used all three with mixed results. Most of the time, it has been positive. Although, I have an unused Groupon for hair services because the stylist has never returned my calls for an appointment. However, that’s not a Groupon issue and everything else bought through them has been awesome. Ebates is the one I’ve not really touched.

    I love using Ebates for cash back when I shop online!! I use Groupon and Living Social for things to do in town and for 5ks and fun runs. It’s a great way to save money.

    I’ve heard of all three and looked through them all a few times, but never actually used anything through them. I really should try them out. I think Ebates would be best for my family.

    I’m obsessed with Groupon!! We used it allll the time in Hong Kong to get great deals from house products to vacations. Now that I’m back in the US we still check them out from time to time, but mainly because my friend works there and reminds us about the good deals.

    I totally wish we’d done our taxes early, my hubby just finished them actually. I’ve always loved Groupon and living social for deals on family friendly events. I have not tried Ebates buy have heard it’s worth trying out.
