Yes, If you read the above title you are probably thinking that I am just a crazy person. While the the vote on my sanity remains to teeter on a daily basis (just ask my husband, I'm certain he would confirm the teetering sanity) what I recently found it pretty awesome! Especially if you're like me and shop online - a lot. OR, more importantly, If you love it when JoAnn has free shipping and 40% off an item, leaving you no choice but to immediately run to the closest computer and purchase your favorite yarn.
JoAnn is part of the Ebates program. Something I did not know until, well, approximately 30 seconds before I decided that EVERYONE MUST KNOW THIS, NOW! - Sure, I've used Ebates for shopping at Target or Express, but I never really thought of it for my craft shopping. Why? I have no idea. But now I know, and now you know. :)
For anyone that has never used Ebates before, this is how it works:
- You sign up at www.Ebates.com for free. There is never a charge to use Ebates, which is great since that would defeat the purpose of using them. When you signup you receive a $10 gift card to use at a store of your choice.
- Once you have signed up you can search or browse through over 1600 stores that will give you cash back when you shop. Let's take JoAnn for example: When you shop at JoAnn's you earn 3% cash back. That's just for shopping like you normally would!
- There is no step 3. It's really just sign- up & shop. That's it. Can you imagine how much cash back you could earn during the Holiday season?
**Note: If you happen to signup using the links I've provided above I get credit, too!
