Tip # 36 Shop through a cashback site when shopping online
I have to admit, I really don't like shopping online because I hate paying for shipping & handling. But there are times when even the most savvy shopper needs to buy something online (and sometimes even with the S&H, you can get a better deal online).
So if you have to buy through the web, at least go through a cashback site. All you do is create an account, click on the website you want to go to (through the cashback site), and when you accumulate a certain amount of cashback, you'll receive a check in the mail. Simple as that!
Below is a list of sites I use the most. I've received a check already from ebates and I've received cashback through Discover and Upromise. Every little bit counts, and it especially adds up with bigger purchases (think plane tickets and hotel rooms).
