It has been awhile since I have done a Frugal Friday, but make no mistake I am always looking for a good deal. I had read a lot about people using cash back sites for online shopping, but although I do a lot of online shopping, I just never remembered to use any of them. But then ShopAtHome.com recently contacted me with a shopping challenge. Um, I’m sorry….did someone just CHALLENGE ME TO SHOP? Do you think it is possible for me to turn this into some sort of career?
I was given a $50 Target giftcard (shopping challenge AND Target, SQUEE!!) to see how far I could make it go using ShopAtHome.com. Their site offers coupon codes, free shipping codes as well as cash back on your purchases. It is super easy to navigate and find what you are looking for using the search function. Once you find the store you want, you simply click through the ShopAtHome.com link and begin shopping. Your cash back is credited to your account and will be cashed out once you hit $20.
In an effort to reign in the clutter monster that is constantly taking over our house, I purchased this ottoman:
I think it will also double as a “holy crap people are coming over and the house is a mess and I need someplace to pitch all this stuff” ottoman. Really, Target should consider calling it that. Cause I bet 90% of people are using it in that capacity.
I am so excited about the deal I got!! Normally the ottoman sells for $79.99, but it was on sale for $59. So right off the bat I have saved 26%. Then I got free shipping when I spend $50 on certain home decor. I can’t seem to figure out how much that saved me, but it weighs 33.5 pounds so I have to believe I saved a bundle. When I checked out, Target told me I had saved 34% so we will go with that. PLUS I get 5% back from ShopAtHome.com just for shopping. HOLLA!!
Do you want to take a shopping challenge? That is right, I have a $50 Target giftcard for you to give ShopAtHome.com a try. And I would like to talk a little smack and say that I don’t think you can beat my savings. Well, I guess you could shop clearance, but that seems unfair. So leave me a comment telling me why you need a Target giftcard and we will have a little throw down. Of course, the winner of the giftcard will be chosen at random, but the winner of the shop o’ thon will get bragging rights. Let’s see what you frugalistas got.
Winner will be chosen at random on Wed. Oct, 28th. Good luck!!
Disclosure: I was provided with a $50 Target giftcard in order to facilitate my review of ShopAtHome.com. The ability to shop like a rock star AND all opinions are mine.
