Happy May! It’s almost Mother’s Day- and it’s time for many (including myself) to get those gifts, flowers, cards, plants, etc purchased in time for Sunday. It’s also my birthday week…and since I’m a mom…so sometimes maybe it’s time for me to surprise myself?! One of my FAVORITE ways to shop is online but my most favorite way is using Ebates.com because I earn cash back on my purchases and it helps me to save money. I may or may not have gotten an email from Ebates congratulating me on a certain transaction number in my lifetime with them a year or so ago. Given my love for Ebates, and getting cash back, when they said “Hey Brett, can you help spread the word about our Mother’s Day DOUBLE cash back promotion?” I of course had to say yes.
Want to just do flowers? FTD has 25% cash back and Teleflora is at 20% cash back. Send pretty flowers, she’s happy, get cash back, your wallet is happy. Win, win! Not a member of Ebates.com? Signing up is free and new members get a $10 gift card just for signing up!
Not a flower person? There’s tons of great deals to be had, from flowers to clothes to accessories to makeup to house stuff to jewelry. I mean, that covers just about any list?! And my favorite (see below) deal…

Here’s the super fun thing. Does mom like magazines? Head to Ebates, click on Magazines.com, and get her a renewal or a new subscription to People Magazine (or maybe just me. I mean, we all have guilty pleasures???) and then YOU will get 52% cash back on the subscription price. PLUS when you click through, a $5 off coupon is on the home page. Let’s do that math. Can someone send this to my husband please?
1 year People Magazine is $116.07 for 53 issues. (The $5 coupon won’t work for People, so maybe get a subscription for yourself with People, and then surprise someone else with another magazine that does work with the coupon). But still… Then you get $60.36 back from Ebates. Um, hello? Sign me up, please and thank you. I mean, you know. Sign yourself up. (I would feel guilty buying for myself but I’d love to have this! What a fun gift that lasts all year!)
Thanks to Ebates for sponsoring this conversation today, and for giving me cash back since 2008. Three cheers for smart spending!
