Have you ever heard of Ebates?

Well, basically it's a website that you can shop from that pays you in CASH!
What you do, is you go to Ebates, create an account and start shopping. They basically have contracts with tons and tons of stores that pay them a commission for referring customers to them. They have just about any store you'd want to shop at, like target, walmart, barnes and noble, eBay, kohls etc. and shopping with them is super easy.

All you have to do is sign up by giving them your email address. Then you log on and start shopping. 

Let's say you're looking for a birthday present for your sister and she loves Old Navy. Just hop on to Ebates, find Old Navy under the clothing tab. Once you find that, you click on the old navy link. ebates takes you directly to the Old Navy website. You don't have to do anything else. Just shop on Old Navy like you normally would. Then a couple days later, your Ebates account is credited according to the percentage of ebate offered. For instance... old navy is currently offering 2% cash back. But other stores vary their cash back percentage. Like has 10% cash back right now and Nordstrom has 5% cash back and The Body Shop has 10% cash back, etc.

The percentages offered change occasionally for each store and I've even seen some stores offering over 25% cash back!! 

Over the holidays, I purchased a few things online. But I went to Ebates first instead of going directly to the stores website. It redirected me to the store I wanted and a couple days later my Ebates account was credited with cash. You are given your money quarterly and you can tell them how you want your money returned to you. Either through a check which is mailed to you or it can be automatically put into your paypal account. You can also send it to your favorite charity or directly to a family member. How cool is that??
Also... let's say you have an online coupon code that you want to use to receive free shipping at your favorite store or 25% off, etc. you can still use that just like normal. So the savings you get are AWESOME!

Ebates is really easy to use. 
You just shop online like normal. Except you make sure you're logged into Ebates first. Then 4 times a year you get a nice little check.
I'm expecting my first check on February 15th and it's for over 30 bucks!! 
I can't wait! 

Let me know if you have any questions. 
If you sign up, be sure to sign up using the links I've provided because my account will be credited for any referrals I give to Ebates (yours will too!). 
It's pretty awesome!
