This holiday season will have tons of good deals. Black Friday ads are already coming in and I am seeing hot deals on popular products from Target, Walmart, Ulta, Sephora and Kohls. Did you know you can usually get the same deals if not better by shopping online instead of standing in the long lines! Plus there are cash back sites that make savings even deeper. My favorite “cash back” sites is Giving Assistant.
And they already put together this HUGE list of Black Friday Deals. I’m just going to say I may get lazy this year and point y’all to this list because it’s way better than the ones I put out. They have it all! And they’re updating the list daily, so it only get better as the holidays get closer.
Not only do they have great coupons like $5 off $15 for Ulta but they also have coupon codes for subscription boxes like FabFitFun! My daughter and I really love FabFitFun, where Giving Assistant has coupon codes, making the box even cheaper! And there’s even grocery store coupon deals.
But I think the best part of signing up for Giving Assistant is the cash back on every purchase I make. I shop a lot online anything from food items, makeup to furniture and having the ability to earn cash back helps my tight budget.
They also give you double cash back, always… and you get 100% of the cash back, unlike a lot of competing cash back sites who only do 50% or less!
One of the things I like best about Giving Assistant is they pay in a matter of days by Paypal or mailed check instead of having to meet a large minimum. Their minimum is only $5.01 and they pay daily, so if you meet the minimum everyday at Giving Assistant you will get a deposit or check mailed out.
So if you are planning large purchases like renovations to your home, vacations, televisions, computer systems & accessories, cameras, kitchen appliances or small appliances using Giving Assistant will give you the most cash back.
Save the most on Home Renovations
If you are planning renovations you definitely want to use Giving Assistant when you shop places like Home Depot and Lowes.
Say you spend $7000 on a kitchen renovation and use buy everything online using the Giving Assistant browser. You would save $280 just by going through the site to Home Depot. That’s a lot of money to save! You still get all the normal savings on the stores website. So even if you buy things on clearance, you’d still get the cash back. It won’t effect how you save on the Home Depot site.
However, there’s also coupons for things like 20% off of blinds, 30% off a single purchase, extra 10% off your order, and individual deals for construction tools like hand saws.
Add the browser plugin for Firefox or Chrome
When you use Firefox or Chrome you can add the Giving Assistant browser to your dashboard. Look for the popup when you visit the site on any of these browsers. Since I exclusively use Firefox and I forget to go to the site BEFORE shopping I added the browser and cannot wait to start saving.
