Online Savings

We all know how to make savings at the bricks and mortar stores: just keep an eye on the newspapers and then clip the coupons as they appear. However, there's still a lot of people who don't quite realise that there's a similar system for the online stores.

For example, if you were to visit Ebates you would find money off offers and coupons for Target stores and products. If you're going to be shopping online anyway, why not make use of such services and save money?

That's not all Ebates offers, either. The way such online coupons work is that every time one is used then the site that provided it gets a commission or cashback. Excellent, capitalism in action, you the consumer get something, the store's happy and the middleman gets a cut. But if you sign up with Ebates then they share those commissions and cashbacks with you: that's right, you as the buyer get a cut of the money as well as all the savings you are making by using the coupons and getting those great deals.

That's a pretty good deal, isn't it? Check it out.
