Big Savings at Amazon When Using Subscribe and Save

Lately, we’ve been buying more and more of our household supplies from Amazon rather than Drugstore.com. Even as early as college, Drugstore.com was my go-to store, because I could save big at Drugstore.com using five easy shopping tips. That’s all been changing as Amazon offers more diverse items, lower prices and more importantly, subscribe and save.     Introduction to Amazon Subscribe and Save Even though Amazon subscribe and save has been around for a while now, a lot of people are still not familiar with it. The basic premise is that shoppers tend to buy the same household goods on a regular basis whenever they run low on supplies. For example, you may buy a 12-pack of toilet paper every month or the same Colgate brand toothpaste every two weeks. Companies, such as Amazon, realize this and want you to keep buying from them instead of buying from them today but from Drugstore.com next month, because of a sale. Think how profitable it would be for Amazon if you committed to...

How to Get 45% Off Shopping at Kmart or Sears

Happy Thanksgiving! Thanksgiving means Black Friday is just around the corner but to be honest, you can save just as much money shopping from the comfort of you home these days as camping in front of a store. For a limited time, you can get 45% off shopping at Kmart or Sears. Both stores have a large variety of items to choose from and are perfect choices for wedding registry shopping or holiday shopping.   Amex Sync Lands End The key to getting 45% off shopping at Kmart or Sears is the current Amex Sync Lands End deal (expires 12/31/13) where you will receive a $25 statement credit for spending $100 or more at Lands End. I’ve highlighted Amex Sync before and how easy it was to earn free money via the Amex Sync Best Buy deal by simply buying gift cards. In this case, you will buy a $100 Lands End gift card. In addition, you will first go through the ShopDiscover cash back portal to access the Lands...

Discover It Credit Card: Free $75 Amazon Gift Card

Previously, I mentioned that you should open the Discover It credit card but rarely use it, because the card offers many perks including access to the lucrative ShopDiscover cash back portal, 5% cash back on rotating categories, and has no annual fee. The downside, however, is that Discover rarely offers the big sign-up bonuses that many other credit card companies offer. In fact, you usually get nothing for opening the Discover It credit card versus another excellent card, such as the Barclays Arrival credit card, which gets you 44,000 miles worth ~$440.     Recently, however, I was reading Rapid Travel Chai’s blog, and one of his readers made a comment that anyone can get a $75 Amazon gift card for opening the Discover It credit card through Amazon. I tried it myself and sure enough, you do get a $75 Amazon gift card! This offer is better than my previous link for the Discover It credit card.     The Main Point A $75 Amazon gift card may...

Save Big at Drugstore.com on Household Supplies

You know by now I do almost 100% of my shopping online, because it’s convenient, it offers cash back from a portal, and it generally offers lower prices than a physical store. My friends often joke that I even buy toilet paper online, but it’s no joke – I do buy toilet paper and all my household supplies online at Drugstore.com. I’ve shopped there ever since I was in college and along the way, I’ve learned a lot of tips and tricks that when combined together, will really pile on the savings.   Tip #1 – Shop Through a Cash Back Portal If you are not familiar with cash back portals, read my introduction to cash back on everything, a tutorial on how to get cash back when shopping online. With Drugstore.com, however, you will want to go through the cash back portal that gives you the highest cash back AND lets you take advantage of the new customer promotion for $10 off $50 for your first non-prescription order....

Priceline Rewards Visa is the Best 2% Cash Back Credit Card

When I explained why you should open the Discover It credit card but rarely use it, I mentioned that you should open that credit card to access the ShopDiscover cash back portal plus other perks but not for the 1% cash back on spending. That’s because 2% cash back credit cards exist, and you are much better off using those credit cards if you want simple cash back rather than dealing with miles and points. In particular, there are two 2% cash back credit cards you should learn about but only one worth having. The two cards are the Priceline Rewards Visa and the Fidelity American Express, but you should only open the Priceline Rewards Visa. [Update 5/25/13] Unfortunately, the Priceline Rewards Visa no longer offers 2% cash back. The credit card now only offers 1% cash back.   Priceline Rewards Visa 5,000 points signup bonus (redeemable for $50) 2% cash back on everything 5% cash back on Priceline Name Your Own Price purchases. It’s a Visa so accepted...

Open the Discover It Credit Card but Rarely Use It!

Yesterday, I talked about the high cash back rates and other benefits of the ShopDiscover portal. In order to access ShopDiscover, however, you need an eligible Discover credit card. That is why I recommend opening the Discover It credit card. You may have seen the ads for the Discover It credit card everywhere from the TV to the subway. And while it’s common to knock on Discover for not being as widely accepted as Visa, MasterCard, etc., the Discover It credit card is actually very good. Some key positives and a couple negatives include the following: Access to ShopDiscover portal and great cash back rates when shopping 5% cash back on rotating categories every quarter (click to see the 2013 categories) 1% cash back on everything else Fantastic customer service (in my opinion as good as American Express and you’ll speak to a well-knowledged customer representative in the U.S. rather than one based overseas) No annual fee No signup bonus Discover not as widely accepted as Visa or MasterCard...

More Savings with ShopDiscover and Discover Cashback

If you’ve been reading about cash back portals and buying a tuxedo or suit from Macy’s at great prices, you may be wondering several questions?   Q. What exactly is this “DiscoverCard.com” cash back portal you see at the top of Cashbackholic’s page when you search for Macy’s? Q.Why is the cash back rate so much higher for this “DiscoverCard.com” cash back portal than the other cash back portals I’ve discussed in the past, such as Ebates, Top Cash Back, and Mr. Rebates? Q.Why is this “DiscoverCard.com” offering the highest cash back for many retailers besides Macy’s? For example, it is currently offering the highest cash back for Sears at 10%.     ShopDiscover and Discover Cashback DiscoverCard.com refers to ShopDiscover, which is another cash back portal that can be a powerful tool in saving you money when shopping online. Unlike other popular cash back portals, ShopDiscover is only available to Discover cardholders. It is a bonus perk to entice you to open up one of their credit cards...
