Shopping online has a lot of perks. There is, of course, the convenience factor. With all the rain we’ve been having lately (I’m starting to wonder if we should build an ark) it’s nice not to have to get drenched dashing in and out of multiple stores or the post office to buy and mail off gifts, or every time my husband decides he needs a new storage solution or tool for the garage.
Another nice perk, though, is the option to earn cash back. There are a number of cash back sites out there that I’ve used and was always happy to get a few cents or dollars here and there. Even 0.5-5% adds up over time and the checks or PayPal deposits I receive are always added to our savings as a little “extra”.
