Money Saving Mamas: Ebates

If you’re an online shopper (which if you’re a mom, let’s face it, online shopping is life) and you’re not using Ebates then we’re about to change your life!

We do a lot of online shopping! Being a mom is exhausting and you may not have a lot of free time to be out shopping. So online shopping whether during a late night feeding or waiting for your kid at the bus stop is a life saver. Ebates is a great way to make those online deals just a little bit sweeter by paying you cash back, literally cold hard cash, for shopping through their links!

Here’s how it works:
Log on and create an Ebates account. Once you do that you can can activate cash back two ways. The first option is you can go to directly to the site,  search for the store you’re shopping at and click through from Ebates. The second option is you can install the Ebates cash back button for your internet browser. We both like the second option because what can happen is that you forget to click the links through Ebates first.  So anytime you visit a site eligible for Ebates cash back it will create a pop up that asks if you want to activate your cash back – super easy!

We also recommend checking out their mobile app. They do promos like Mobile Mondays! On Mondays (and other holidays) by shopping through the app instead of the computer links, some stores will offer higher percentages of cash back. This is awesome! Particularly during the holidays when it happens all the time.

You can also earn bonuses for referring friends- they get money and so do you! It’s a win win all around.

This has totally changed the way we online shop. To be honest, we get more than a little sad when we see 0% cash back on a store. 😭! To date, after almost two years Emily has made $426.24 and Sherrie has made $258.55! Are you an Ebates user? If not, you will be now! Ready to get started? Join us here or here!

Disney Movie Rewards!

Recently, I stumbled across this great rewards program.  I consider myself to be, what some people would call, a Disney freak.  Mike and I actually honeymooned at Walt Disney World.

For the past five years or so, I’ve been visiting Disney World at least once a year.  I can’t wait to take Madeline! So even when I didn’t know about this rewards program, it was a shock! Rest assured, I have rectified the situation and am now a member.

Essentially, this is a rewards program that rewards you for buying and seeing Disney movies!  Whether you purchase a DVD/Blu-ray or you see a movie in the movie theaters, you can earn different amounts of points by entering in codes found in the movies.

  Once you’ve accumulated enough points you can redeem them for Disney merchandise, retail gift cards, Disney experiences, and of course more Disney movies!

What I didn’t realize is that this program has been in existence for quite some time.  When I joined, I immediately pulled all of my Disney DVDs off the shelf to see if they had codes on them.  Sure enough three of my movies did, and I had purchased them as far back as 6-8 years! I was excited to have some points! As Madeline grows, I am excited to add to our Disney movie collection. After all, I’m sure she will love Disney as much as I do and think she’s a Disney Princess!  I’ll be racking up the points since  I’ve got my eye on the private studio tour of Disney Studios for 4 people- it’s 15,000 points.

Are you a Disney freak like me? Or maybe you just have multiple kids and see/own a lot of Disney movies?  If so, you should be a member! It’s so easy and it saves money in the long run- so why not? Join me here.

Pampers Rewards: Why We Love It!

As couponers and money saving mommy’s we love rewards programs, but one of our favorites is Pampers Rewards! We both love and use Pampers diapers – our favorite style is swaddlers & cruisers! Pampers offers a  Rewards Program that is super easy and the rewards are awesome. If you’re not signed up or don’t know what this program is, you can check it out here!

Here is the lowdown:
You go and create an account on the Pampers website. When you purchase any Pampers brand wipes or diapers there is a code on the packaging. You then enter the code on your computer or their mobile app and it gives you a certain number of points depending on the size of the package.  There is no fee for this program, you simply just have to  buy Pampers diapers or wipes.
