Do you online shop?

We do a lot of our shopping online. We have found that even with shipping, the prices are lower and the selection is much bigger. Every time I shop online I use Ebates. Honestly I thought everyone already knew about Ebates, but I mentioned it to Angi once, and she hadn't heard of it so I thought I would share.
Before I shop online, I go to ebates.com first and log in. From there I can go to most of my favorite websites and shop as normal. Usually within a couple of days I get an email that says my Ebates account has been credited. Different websites give you anything from 1%-5% back your total purchase. Sometimes there is even specials and you can get up to 10% back. 4 times a year Ebates mails out Big Fat Checks. Free money!!
Ebates is free to sign up for and free to use. Most of the websites I shop from are on there (Modcloth, Kohls, TOMS, etc.) Only certain categories from Amazon are on there, so that kind of sucks. And Forever 21 isn't on there, yet. They do add shops pretty frequently.

You can use this link to sign up for Ebates. I do get a referral bonus when people sign up through this link, and then start shopping. But, I do think it is really a cool thing if you shop online. So far I have been paid over $90, and right now my next check will be at least $44.

What is your favorite online shopping site? Have you ever used ebates?

I shop online, but mainly at Amazon, ha. Also I hold a grudge against Ebates for stealing my dot-com. That's my first initial-last name and now I can never have a legit dot-com because they STOLE IT and don't even have a good logo I want to steal and use ironically. LAME.

I love you, I love you. I've never gotten into online shopping. Mostly because I'm scared of things not fitting or working right. But being pregnant has made me start to look into it (shopping for maternity clothes is impossible if you don't live in a city with a gigantic mall). Thanks for sharing!!

I am a huge online shopper who always forgets to log into ebates first.

I am an online shopper. I've heard of Ebates, but I've never used it. I use MyPoints. You earn points that you can trade in for all kinds of gift cards: restaurants, stores, Visa gift cards. Straight up money would be nice, though! Sometimes I like that I can get something to use as a great, but I hate Visa gift cards. I wish they had a cash option!
