Earn 7% Cash Back at Amazon + Double Cash Back Retailers

Earn 7% Cash Back at Amazon + Double Cash Back Retailers


 

 

I normally wouldn’t interrupt a holiday with a blog post, but today Amazon is doing something they normally never do.  You can earn up to 7% cash back on your online purchases.  If you love a good bargain or are a Product Reviewer, this is the perfect time to save even more money!

Other retailers which participate all the time in cash back are offering double cash back today.  Check out these great offers: 7% cash back from Walmart, 8% from Kohls, 8% from Macy’s and many more, see full list below and make sure you use Ebates for all your online shopping.

You can even install an add-in in your Chrome browser that will remind you when you are doing your online shopping if that store offers cash back or has any promotions or coupon codes available.

You will actually receive a check in the mail quarterly, and if you are an online shopper, this will add up fast.  I use this service and have received about 200.00 since starting to use it about a year and a half ago.

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy-Thanksgiving



I would like to thank every one of the over 300 people who have so graciously come to look at my new blog and subscribe. I have many new things planned for the blog in the coming weeks, most importantly I have decided to share a little more about myself.

As I have dived into the Reviewing community, it has felt so good to connect to people again.  That is something I have really missed in the years since I have no longer been able to work.  As it became more and more necessary to spend my time in bed, I cut myself off from the friends and colleagues I did have, trying to deal with the grief I still continue to feel over losing my independence.

In the coming weeks, I will be sharing more about that and my current health, but more importantly, sharing the jewels of inspiration I have been finding as I rediscover my life. 

Please keep checking back, I never expected to have so many new friends and followers not even a month after I started, and am looking forward to sharing this journey called life.

Missing Reviews? Affiliate Links?

Missing Reviews? Affiliate Links?

I just read a very interesting post in the Top Reviewers forum on Amazon. Have you been missing some reviews you wrote on Amazon?  Have all of your reviews been deleted? Reviews deleted by Amazon? Here’s why by Maine Colonel

I completely agree with the good Colonel.  Vendors are manipulating the system but so are the people out there who call themselves Reviewers but are only interested in freebies.

As a serious Reviewer though, the most interesting part was about bloggers.  I had never thought of this before but I think it is something bloggers should be aware of.   “Some people post reviews on Amazon and then link to the review on a blog. If someone clicks through to Amazon from the blog review and buys the product, the blogger has it set up so that they receive affiliate pay from Amazon. Reviews like this are also being removed by Amazon, because its terms for reviewers do not allow reviewers to receive any payment for a review other than a free copy of the product.”



What are your thoughts on this?  Do your reviews link back to Amazon? Would love to have some feedback from the blogger community.

How I am getting $297 worth of fantastic merchandise for only $34?


I have been lucky enough to be picked for some great opportunities the last two days.  I am receiving these products for free or at a promotional discount in exchange for an honest and unbiased review. I was approved to review a handmade glass tea set, Christmas presents for my husband, 3D Virtual Reality goggles, a 50 foot hose and a few more items.  I saved 89% by doing this, only having to spend around $34.00 for approximately $297.00 worth of fantastic merchandise!

A Treasure Chest of Serendipity

A Treasure Chest of Serendipity


Serendipity 2

Serendipity… the effect by which one accidentally stumbles upon something truly wonderful, especially while looking for something entirely unrelated.

 



As I have jumped into the Reviewing community feet first, it has felt so good to connect with people again. That is something I have really missed in the years since I have no longer been able to work.  As it became more and more necessary to spend most of my time in bed, I cut myself off from the friends and colleagues I did have, trying to deal with the grief I still continue to feel over losing my independence and developing some really complicated health problems.

I hope as a reader of this blog you are able to experience Serendipity and not only discovered wonderful things about shared interests, but also things about yourself, that you didn’t even know you were looking for.



At first, I thought I would only share about my reviews with you and show how you can do reviews yourself.  But then it occurred to me that just reviews can be very boring at times.  I like to get to know other people and so I hope you do too.  In the coming weeks, I will be sharing more about what is going on in my life right now and my current health, but more importantly, sharing the jewels of inspiration I have been finding as I rediscover my life.
