Every year I like to find the perfect gifts and hunt out the best deals, if you can find a sale price on a gift you are planning on purchasing you have more money towards more gifts and stocking stuffers. And also I like to buy one or two presents at a time so it doesn't seem like so much of a financial hit to my bank account.
That's why I was so happy when I found Giving Assistant: they pay you cash back on all your online purchases at over 1,800 of the largest retailers. So it doesn't hurt to earn an average of 5% cash back on gifts you already plan to purchase!
And what's nice is they have a 'fee-free' cash out with only a $5 balance weekly by Paypal or quarterly by cheque through the mail. You can also choose to donate your cashback (or a portion of it) to your favourite charity! Plus, Giving Assistant makes a small donation to Feeding America to give one meal every time cash back is earned.
And they are also super simple to use - all you need to do to get credit is click the department store link from within the Giving Assistant website to be credited.
You can purchase whatever your heart desires and checkout as usual (just make sure its within 24 hours of using the link in order to be credited so start with an empty cart before each purchase)
Cash back varies from store to store with some offering a percentage of your purchase to charity. For instance Target is 1.5% JC Penny 3% Barnes & Noble is 4% Walmart offers 4% Pottery Barn offers 4% charitable donation Macy's is 6% Sears is 7%
I used this site to buy my daughter a Shopkins Happy Places House from Toy's 'R Us and also got the free shipping promotion for spending over $19.
Well good luck with your shopping!
