Save Money, plus EARN CASH BACK, with Ebates!

Posted by 1FrugalMom on April 15, 2013 at 6:05 PM Comments comments (0)


                          Ebates.com: Coupons, Promo Codes and Cash Back Savings!

If you're not using Ebates, then you're not saving as much as you can, and you're not earning cash back from shopping at your favorite online stores.  Quit throwing your hard earned cash away, and join Ebates (it's FREE) today!  And start saving, plus earning cash back right away!  

"Ebates is the pioneer and leader of online cash back shopping. Ebates pays members cash back every time they shop online as well as provide them with the best coupons and deals online. Founded in 1998, Ebates has paid over $100,000,000 in cash to its members. That's why over 12 million people have joined Ebates, and we're excited you are ready to start earning cash back, too." Plus, when you sign-up now, and make a minimum qualifying purchase totaling at least twenty-five dollars ($25.00) within ninety (90) days of becoming a new member, you will receive your choice of a FREE $10 gift card to one of the following:  Macy's, Walmart, Target, or Kohl's! CLICK  HERE TO GET STARTED NOW!  IT'S FREE!

Below is a screen shot of my current pending pay out. You can see that they accidentally errored in my favor, and have accidentally credited me twice for one purchase. No worries though, I'm sure they'll catch it and correct it before I'm paid out.  They pay out every quarter (about every 3 or 4 months).  And I believe the next pay out date is 3/31/13.

I've chosen to be paid via PayPal, but you can also choose to be paid by check. Walmart pays 4% cash back which you can see came in handy when I was shopping for Christmas gift cards to give as gifts; and InkCartages pays 12.5% cash back. Different cash back amounts are offered for each store.

However, an even bigger savings is the extra sales and discounts you receive by shopping at your favorite online stores through the Ebates links. I received 10% off, plus free shipping (in addition to the 12.5% cash back) from InkCartridges. And I received a small discount and free shipping (in addition to the cash back) on my other purchases from Walmart and Buydig, too!  Savings differ w/ each store & some are 50% off or even more!  

As if all that isn't enough, Ebates also PAYS YOU $5 for each "qualified referral!"  "*A qualified referral is a new member to Ebates referred by you who makes a purchase of $25 or more earning cash back and enters valid profile information [within a certain time limit - currently by 3/31/13]."  

Ebates is completely FREE! And you can set your email preferences so they will not spam you (that is unless you like receiving the latest deals in your email - the choice is yours)!  I love Ebates and I'm sure you will, too!  Click HERE to use my referral link and sign-up today!  You'll be glad you did!

Tips for getting the most gas for your monies at the pump!

Posted by 1FrugalMom on April 15, 2013 at 3:50 PM Comments comments (0)


                                              Photo courtesy of Google images.

Only buy or fill up your vehicle in the early morning when the ground temperature is still cold. Remember that all service stations have their storage tanks buried below ground. The colder the ground the more dense the gasoline, when it gets warmer gasoline expands, so buying in the afternoon or in the evening... your gallon is not exactly a gallon. In the petroleum business, the specific gravity and the temperature of the gasoline, diesel and jet fuel, ethanol and other petroleum products plays an important role.  A 1-degree rise in temperature is a big deal for this business. But the service stations do not have temperature compensation at the pumps.

When you're filling up do not squeeze the trigger of the nozzle to a fast mode If you look you will see that the trigger has three (3) stages: low, middle, and high. You should be pumping on low mode, thereby minimizing the vapors that are created while you are pumping. All hoses at the pump have a vapor return. If you are pumping on the fast rate, some of the liquid that goes to your tank becomes vapor. Those vapors are being sucked up and back into the underground storage tank so you're getting less worth for your money.

One of the most important tips is to fill up when your gas tank is HALF FULL. The reason for this is the more gas you have in your tank the less air occupying its empty space. Gasoline evaporates faster than you can imagine. Gasoline storage tanks have an internal floating roof. This roof serves as zero clearance between the gas and the atmosphere, so it minimizes the evaporation. Unlike service stations, here where I work, every truck that we load is temperature compensated so that every gallon is actually the exact amount.

Another reminder, if there is a gasoline truck pumping into the storage tanks when you stop to buy gas, DO NOT fill up; most likely the gasoline is being stirred up as the gas is being delivered, and you might pick up some of the dirt that normally settles on the bottom.

Tips to Winning Giveaways!

Posted by 1FrugalMom on April 12, 2013 at 4:20 PM Comments comments (6)


The secret to winning giveaways, is really no secret at all.  It's simple really: SIMPLY ENTER TO WIN!  If you don't enter, you can't win.  And the more you enter, the better your chances!  It's a numbers game.  Personally, I spend about an hour or more every single day entering giveaways.  I've made it a part of my daily routine.  It's a chore, but it pays off.  I win stuff all the time.  And sometimes the things are really nice!  If you put in the time and effort, you can win, too!


I've put together a huge list of FREE instant win games and sweepstakes that I update almost daily.  It takes me about an hour every day to enter everything on the list. I promise you that if you spend the time entering, and I don't just mean one time or one day, but if you make it a part of your regular routine and stick to it, you're sure to win!  Here's my huge list of giveaways -->  http://1frugalmom.webs.com/apps/blog/show/18384740-free-daily-instant-win-games-sweepstakes-  GOOD LUCK!!!  :D

In addition to entering frequently, and as much as possible, here are some more tips...

--  Check your email often! Many giveaways limit the time frame you have to claim your prize. And always check your spam/junk folders b/c many emails from companies go directly into that box.

--  To help locate winning notices, I recommend searching your email every few days by key words like: congratulations, congrats, you've won, you won, you win, potential winner, prize, fulfillment, and etc.  Be sure to check both your inbox, and your spam/junk folder, by those keywords.

--  Always follow the rules.  Never try to cheat or you could be disqualified.  For example, if the giveaway states "only one entry per household," trust me, they have ways of knowing where every entry came from, and if they received more than one entry from your IP address, you may lose your chance to win. 

--  In many cases, you'll only have to enter your info (name, address, etc) the 1st time entering. Then when you return to enter again each day after that, usually all you'll need to enter is the email address you originally used to signed-up.   However, in some cases, the entry forms require you to fill it out completely each time.  To save time, I use Google Chrome's auto-fill.  I believe FireFox may also offer autofill, too.  Use it!  It's a huge time saver!  It also helps if your email address is something that is easy for others, like a short word.  Mine is long, and it's a pain in the butt to type it out when required.  

-- It may help to have a separate, designated, email address just for entering sweepstakes b/c sometimes signing up for newsletters may be required, and/or you may receive a lot of "entry confirmation" emails, and a separate email address will help keep the possible clutter out of your personal box.  Just remember to check it frequently (and it's spam folder, too).  Also, another benefit of doing this, is that you'll know that any and all emails received in that email account are from your giveaway entries.

--  Unless you're truly interested in receiving emails from a that company, if you have the option to opt-out of a mailing listing, take it.  That means either checking or unchecking a box, or boxes, to stay off their mailing list.  Look closely.

--  If you're uncomfortable sharing your date of birth on the entry forms, you can fudge your date by a number or two. For example, if your birthday is 2/22/80, you could say your bday is 2/21/80, or 3/22/80, or 2/22/81, just change one digit that will be easy for you to remember. In most cases, they only request your DOB (date of birth) because you have to be above a certain age to participate.

--  The more effort required to enter a giveaway, the better your chances of winning b/c many others will not put forth the effort to enter. Giveaways like this include things like photo contests, jingle contests, recipe contests, and etc., that require action (instead of just clicking or filling out a short form). Personally, I've won some of my best prizes with giveaways that required a photo entry.

--  Use a FREE Google Voice Number, instead of your home/cell phone number, to have control over unwanted sales calls.  Google Voice Numbers can be forwarded to any other number you want, like your home or cell phone, or straight to voice mail (in which case you'll receive an email notification), so callers will never know it's not your real number (and you'll never miss a sweepstakes winning call).  Plus, Google Voice Numbers provide the option to BLOCK unwanted calls. So if/when you do get a sales call, you can always block that number to prevent further calls from that unwanted caller.  I LOVE Google Voice!  And I strongly suggest using it instead of your real/direct number(s).  Trust me, you'll thank me later.  

--  Click through to the end.  Make sure that you click all the way through to the end.  You want to see something that confirms that your entry has been received.  Sometimes the URL in your browser will also change and have an ending that says something like "thank you."

--  If you're entering a giveaway that's being ran by a company through a Facebook channel, and it's a photo that you have to "like," and/or comment on, and you've seen it in one of your friend's posts, be sure to click on it and actually "like," and/or comment on, it from the company's wall for it to count. Liking, and/or commenting on, it from your friend's post, doesn't count as an entry. Secondly, if the company is using an app to choose the winner, your odds will increase if you're more active than others on their post(s).  

In a nut shell:

1.)  Enter to win often!  Make it a part of your daily routine if possible.

2.)  Check email frequently.  And don't forget to also check spam/junk folders.

3.)  Routinely search your email by key "winning" announcement type words.

4.)  Make sure you follow the rules to prevent being disqualified.  This should really be #1.

5.)  Use auto fill.  I use Google Chrome's, it's free & easy.  I think FireFox offers it, too.

6.) Set-up a dedicated, short, email address just for giveaways.  And don't forget to check it often (along w/ it's spam folder).  And opt out of mailing lists to prevent email clutter.

7.) If you're concerned about providing your birthdate, change it by one digit.  

8.)  The harder the entry requirements, the fewer people will enter, which means a better chance of you winning.  Examples:  Photo contests, jingle contests, recipe contests, & etc.

9.)  Use a FREE Google Voice Number to avoid unwanted sales calls. 

10.)  Click through to the end & make sure to get confirmation that your entry was received.

11.)  When participating in giveaways ran through Facebook, make sure to do so through the original source by clicking on the photo that your friend shared and following the instructions on the photo from that company.  ** Liking, and/or commenting on, your friend's post, doesn't count as an entry.  You MUST do that on the ORIGINAL source.
