How do you get paid for shopping? I don’t want you to go out and spend money but whenever you buy something try to get a little bonus for yourself is great. How do you do this?

Tip #1 – Promotional codes. I never want to pay for shipping a item because I always feel that this is taking away from my online deal. One website that I visit before I checkout online is Just type in your store’s name then you will get codes for discounts and many times for free shipping.

Tip#2- Receive a check every quarter. Ebates is a website that gives you a certain percentage of your purchase in your account then they send you a quarterly check. Before you purchase anything go to the ebate site, type in the store’s name to see if they participate in ebates.

Swagbucks is another website that you can shop online to earn swagbucks or even watch videos, take surveys, search the web and more to earn bucks. Redeem your bucks for products at the Swag Store.

Shop At Home also gives you cash back when you make purchases through their site. They have over 50,000 stores participating plus lots of coupons, deals and free samples. When you earn $25 or more bucks they will send you a check.

Tip #3- Don’t forget to use your smartphone. Ibotta is an app that you download giving you the opportunity to earn cash while you shop at major retail stores like Walgreens, Target and Walmart.

Receipt Hog app gives you cash when you snap a picture of your receipt from your phone.

ShopKick app lets you earn money just by walking into some of the stores you love. All you do is walk in with your smartphone and instantly earn kicks. You also can tie your credit cards with your purchases to get more kicks. When you receive enough kicks cash them in for reward gift cards.

Tip#4- Mail in Rebates are a great way to get a bonus for buying a product. Remember you need to follow the directions and mail it in.
