Hey guys! As you know I travel very often, and I’m always looking for ways to save money. Before I travel, I spend hours or even days searching through discounted travel websites. I also tend to shop for new holiday clothes for myself and my daughter, or i’ll get some last minute essential items. Either way i’m always looking for ways to save a buck!
How to save money for your next trip
There is one website that I visit before I purchase ANYTHING online , and that is Ebates. If you have never heard of this website then you must have been living under a rock. This is literally the holy grail website for saving money. I’ve been using Voucher Codes for years and finally got round to signing up to Ebates this month and have already saved $50 . So you are probably wandering , what is Ebates?
It’s simply a 3 step system to save you a ton of money before each online purchase, AND GUESS WHAT?
ITS COMPLETELY FREE TO USE!
- Plan– decide what it is you need to purchase. This can be anything from you next vacation to Paris, transport to the airport or simply a new swimsuit for the hotel pool .
- Activate – Simply activate the ebates button in your browser and it will tell you how much cash back you will get on this purchase
- Save– once you have made your purchase ebates will give you cashback !
Now ebates is not the only cashback website out there, there are loads to choose from. I personally use multiple cashback sites at a time plus add on my student discount! Ebates will give you cashback that you can have sent back to you in a check and deposit right into your bank account! How easy is that!?
Save money for travels
Imagine purchasing your next $1000 vacation and getting $100 BACK for simply clicking a button! YOU CANT BEAT SAVINGS LIKE THAT!
They make it really easy to save by having a travel search box directly in the website!
Now i’m not trying to appear salesy here, because this is something I genuinely use in my everyday life. I simply can’t understand why more people aren’t using it too! Any parent can relate, it’s very hard to save money. From school activities to school supplies, it can add up real fast! So why not get cashback EVERY TIME you shop for those things?
You can get cashback in store and online, its a win – win !

HOW TO USE IT TO SAVE MONEY
When i’m travelling , my favorite thing to do is read up on my celebrity gossip and latest fashion trends. However purchasing magazine can get very pricey. Ebates however has a whopping 40% cashback right now on magazine subscriptions from Magazine.com. So I planned out what magazine subscription I wanted.
Simply activated the ebates icon from my browser. Luckily Magazines.com is offering an insane 81% off. so that means I can get 12 months digital and print for under $25. That’s literally the cost of only 4 magazines. (I JUST READ THEM ON MY IPAD!)
After I purchase i’m going to SAVE an extra $9 OFF .
so in total I spent $15.50 (the cost of 2.5 magazines) and got an entire year subscription!
That my friends is the power of ebates.
Magazines are just an example but you can save a ton like this on anything. They have a category for everything!
