I am an online shopper. That’s why ebates and retailmenot are two of my best friends.
I have had a few online shopping moments this week that I feel like writing about.
1. Drugstore.com This site offers free shipping over a certain amount, but then when you hit the weight limit, shipping turns back on.

But, silly them, I used the $5- off coupon I found on retailmenot thrice too and got 12% cashback by going through ebates.

I returned everything I bought at gapkids that afternoon. sweet. Then a few hours later I got a coupon code in my emailbox for 40% off. I started thinking about how I would have to buy it all for the 3rd time and return all that 30% off stuff…but then I wondered—what if I just call customer service and tell them about the coupons crossing and see what happens. A 5-minute phone call later she had price adjusted my whole cart to the 40% off coupon, saving me $35- more bucks. AWESOME.
