The links in the post below may be affiliate links. Read the full disclosure.

If you frequently shop online and want to put some cash back into your wallet, then you’ll definitely want to familiarize yourself with cash back sites. Although there are quite a few cash back sites in existence my favorite sites are Ebates.com and ShopatHome.com.

If you’re unfamiliar with Ebates, it’s a FREE cash back site that offers cash back for the convenience of shopping online, to popular stores like Wal-mart, Kohl’s, JCPenney, Home Depot, Ebay, and more!

Ebates

  1. First, it’s important to go HERE and sign up or create an account with Ebates. Plus, if you don’t already have an account, you’ll receive a FREE $5 bonus just for signing up when you make your first purchase!
  2. Anytime you’re wanting to make an online purchase, be sure to log into your account to see if the store you’re wanting to purchase through is partnered with Ebates. You can find out by simply typing the name of the store in their search box.
  3. If the store is partnered with Ebates, you’ll find a certain percentage given for shopping through that link, which will be credited to your Ebates account within a few days of purchase! It’s very important to shop through the pop-up link that shows up after clicking “Shop Now” on Ebates as it contains your unique tracking link, which is needed to credit your account with the cash back!
  4. Once your account reaches $5.01 (not including the sign-up bonus), you’ll receive your first check in the mail! Checks are sent out every 3 months! Often times, Ebates or ShopatHome offer different cash back amounts for different sites, so it’s beneficial to have an account set up with each site!

ShopAtHome
  1. Fist, go HERE and sign up or create an account with ShopatHome.
  2. Anytime you’re wanting to make an online purchase, be sure to log into your ShopatHome account to see if the store you’re wanting to purchase through is partnered with them. You can find out by simply typing the name of the store in their search box.
  3. If the store is partnered with ShopatHome, you’ll find a certain percentage given for shopping through that link, which will be credited to your ShopatHome account within a few days of purchase! It’s very important to shop through the pop-up link that shows up after clicking “Shop Now” on ShopatHome as it contains your unique tracking link, which is needed to credit your account with the cash back!
  4. Once your account reaches $20 total (including the sign-up bonus!), you’ll receive your first check in the mail! Checks are sent out every 3 months as long as you’ve reached your initial $20 amount…if you haven’t yet, the amount in your account will continue to “roll over” until you’ve reached the $20 payout amount! Afterwards, you’ll start receiving checks on a regular basis.

**Keep in mind that, often times, Ebates or ShopatHome.com offer different cash back amounts for different sites, so it’s beneficial to have an account set up with each site!

Have you ever had moments when you're either out of time or out of printer ink, or both, and you really want to keep track of a "Hip" deal or print a valuable coupon in the next day or two? Or what do you do when an outstanding, but pricey, deal is posted and you want to save it for discussion with your significant other? Well, now you're in luck! No more searching through pages of posts to find the coupon or the deal. Simply move the post to your Hip List and access it at your convenience.

How Does the Hip List Work?

It's easy! To use this feature, first head on over here and register and log into your Hip2Save.com account. Whenever you find a great deal that you want to come back to later at a later time, just click on the HIP List icon located on each post (see images below) and the information will be saved in your account. To remove a post from your HIP List, just click on the HIP List icon and it will be removed.

When logged into your account, you will see the HIP List icon at the bottom of every post if you are viewing Hip2Save.com in classic view.

If you prefer to view Hip2Save.com in river view, you will see the HIP List icon located on every post above the post title and to the right.

If you're wanting to print a certain deal, blog post, or the Weekly Store Matchups from your HIP list, click on the small blue printer icon in the upper right corner of the HIP list. This will allow you to customize the information that you want or don't want to include when printing from your HIP list so you're only printing the information that's most important to you! If there are deals (or portions of deals) that you are not interested in printing, just click on the red x button to remove them. To restore a section, click on the green arrow icon in the upper right hand corner.
