Tips & Tricks for Online Purchases!

I'm so excited I finally placed my order for a chest freezer for our garage. After waiting patiently for a sale for about a month, I bit the bullet and placed the order at full price. *gasp* I was able to get a few dollars savings, and in this post I'll show you how.

First Trick: Ebates. Any time I buy anything online, from clothes to even photo orders from the drugstores, I always start on Ebates. Here's receipt from my purchase today, and my total cash back (yes, actual cash that I received in check form) since I got my account.

Total Savings from Trick #1: $2.39

Second Trick: 2X Fuel Points on Gift Cards at Kroger! I purchased a Home Depot Gift Card for a little over the amount of the freezer (we just bought a house, and have been living at Home Depot, I know it'll get used!), and I racked up 550 fuel points, 2 times the amount of the gift card!

Total Savings from Trick #2 : $19.25

Total Savings: $21.64, roughly 9% of the purchase price.

This is the freezer I chose if anyone's shopping around: 7 Cu Ft Chest Freezer (homedepot.com)
