mypoints.com has been around for well over a decade. i joined about 9 years ago and absolutely love it. i know there are tons of sites trying to copy them, but they are the original. i have earned so many gift cards from them, i’ve lost count. sign up for free, get a newbie bonus ($10.00 at the time i write this.), and earn gift cards quickly and easily. click here to see.
i’m a boy on a budget, so here are my top 3 ways to save money and/or gift cards. very simple:
1. use either ebates or https://www.mypoints.com?rb=22383874 before any purchase. trust me on this one. no fees/bs. long-term company (i’ve been with both of them over 10 years.)
2. use coupons!
3. i still don’t get people who won’t get a grocery store card. no credit’s required so everybody who’s breathing can get one. they track your shopping, i’m sure…but it can get you serious discounts. the government already has all your data, so dive on in!
please comment below with your thoughts, ideas, etc. 🙂
with laptops running nvidia’s new RTX graphics cards, you can get amazing deals on most gaming laptops right now (and they will continue to get lower and discontinued! 🙂
here’s a beauty on the cheap (could be totally gone by the time you read this post, so just search for “gaming laptop” on amazon to see more.)
i’ve been using ebates for at least 10 years. i get cash back via paypal on a quarterly basis. i never shop a site without clicking at ebates first! join here (it’s free, no fees, no added costs, no memberships, no spam, excellent customer service, bonus cash after activating your sign-up, coupons to choose from before shopping, and so much more!) click here to join now!
i’ve used ebates.com for about a decade (or longer?) now. you just have to remember to go to the site first, before shopping, so they can set a temporary cookie to give you cash back on your purchase with (or install their browser add-on, so you never miss a cash-back opportunity 🙂 all of this at zero cost to you…no memberships, fees, etc.
they pay quarterly and the money back really adds up! their amazon purchase link is a bit weird, because amazon only allows cash back on certain categories that seem to change every other day or so. you can choose how to be paid…i think check mailed to you or paypal are the options, if memory serves me right.
they always have amazing deals and coupons, too.
PLUS…you get $10 bucks as a welcome purchase bonus for newbies!

If you haven’t heard of (or used) Groupon yet, then you’re either a newbie, like paying full price, or don’t understand it. I won’t comment on the first two, but I’d like to give just a touch of insight into the third one.
Groupon is a site that offers local coupons to those who sign up (it’s free and painless to sign up). You choose your area and then Groupon emails you coupons, sales, and discounts to local businesses or products near you. They only email you when a coupon’s available in your area. After you purchase, they email you what you bought (not immediately, but within a day or so. That’s it!
My Experience So Far: The first thing I ever bought from them was an Amazon gift certificate. It was a $20 gift certificate for $10. Way too good to pass up. My second (and only other) purchase was a gift certificate to one of my favorite restaurants. It was a $50 gift certificate for $25! Again, way too good to pass up. They’ve sent me emails over the past several months for massage, carpet cleaning, and other discounts that I don’t use so I didn’t buy. But those two deals made it worth my while, even though the majority of them I don’t use…but I remain hopeful for better goodies in my inbox soon 🙂
For those of you who are coupon queens like me, Ebates is an awesome site. But use it wisely…don’t just shop for stuff you don’t need (it’s tempting!), but rather use the site to shop for things that you were going to buy anyway 🙂
i hate getting hit with a 411 surcharge on my cell phone, so i was happy to find this little nugget. instead of dialing “411” for information, dial “1-800-GOOG-411”.
according to their video, if your phone has internet access you can also get a map of the neighborhood around the business you’re looking up.
most importantly, it’s free.
i thought everyone knew that amazon offers groceries (bulk) for sale on their site, but when i’ve mentioned it to people they say they never realized. the catch (if you want to call it that) is that they sell in bulk, so if you want a box of kellogg’s cereal you have to buy a large quantity of them. sort of the “online costco”?
they seem to have really taken off with their organic foods section and eco-friendly household products, so if “organic and green” is your deal then you’ll definitely like their selections.
they usually have some very good sales (that change pretty often) so if you’re interested, here’s the direct link to the groceries sale page:
