My dear and thrifty friend, Michele, turned me on to a great way to get cash back on online purchases of school supplies and just about everything else you purchase online —Ebates! It’s free to join; in fact, when you place your first online order using Ebates, you will get a $10 gift card to Target, Barnes & Noble, Home Depot, or other choice! Every time you want to place an order online, go to Ebates first, then select the store link and shop as usual. Ebates will give you 1% – 10% back on each order, paid to you by check. It really works, and there are no strings attached! Unfortunately, Amazon does not participate, but just about every other store, hotel chain, and other online business does. As tax time approaches and I add up all of the $$ I have spent on books, office supplies, even clothes for work, the idea of rebates is quite appealing. I joined a few weeks ago and already got my $10 gift card and first rebate check. Try it for yourself: CLICK HERE to sign up for Ebates.
UPDATE 3/31/15: Did you know that therapy materials from Great Ideas for Teaching and Super Duper sometimes show up on Zulily at discounted prices?? You can also find lots of toys, games, and special education materials on Zulily. Just type “special education,” “special needs,” “speech,” or “Super Duper” in the Search box to see what is being offered. You’ll have to check back often, as offerings change all the time.
