6 Tips to Maximize Your Cyber Monday Savings

Posted by Madison on December 1, 2014

Happy Cyber Monday! We have lots of online shopping to do, so let’s cut right to the annual checklist: score a great deal (that you can actually give to someone), with free shipping, the best coupons, the highest cash back, and purchased with credit card cash back!

Amazon is offering deals today on their Kindle Fire HD7 Tablet.

In addition Amazon is also featuring 50% off on toys from Hasbro today. Here’s more on Cyber Monday:

1. Cyber Monday Deals

There’s no need to find your own deals when we have all the deal sites at our fingertips. Here are my favorite places to scope out the deals today (almost all of my holiday shopping originates from these three places!):

2. Maximize Cash Back

Once you know what you want to buy, my next stop is the cash back sites that we feature each week. Login to your Ebates, Mr. Rebates, or whichever account you are using to get cash back on your purchase. Be sure to watch for any double cash back offers, which usually start flooding our email boxes this week each year.

To make sure you are maximizing your cash back you can use ShopAtHome.com which has a 110% highest cash back guarantee, or check the Cashback Monitor or CashBack Holic lists for a comparison.

3. Compare the Price

I also like to verify that I’m in fact getting a really great deal. You can use the Amazon browser bar or the Invisible Hand to compare prices at multiple places. In addition, you can use Camelcamelcamel to track price history at Amazon.

4. Ship It Free

My favorite way to ship for free is through our Amazon Prime account. If you don’t have Amazon prime there are plenty of ways to get free Amazon prime shipping during the holiday season:

5. Coupons and Rewards

Coupons. Before checking out, I’ll double check for any coupons on Retail Me Not or Coupon Cabin to make sure I’m stacking the deal in the best way possible.

Rewards. In addition, I’ll make sure that I entered any information needed to earn points for the Rewards Programs at each store.

6. Credit Card Cash Back

Then it’s off to purchase using the credit card that will give the most cash back. I’ll check my options with the cards offering special holiday shopping cash back as their 4th quarter rotating quarterly cashback.
