Cyber Monday officially starts at 12:01 AM Monday, November 26, 2018. I will not be up shopping online at that time, I will, however, look for deals and opportunities to save money on Cyber Monday.
Because supporting you in building and keeping your net worth this is a special edition of Your Best Money Move. #yourbestmoneymove
In addition to the sales and discounts that are available on Monday, I encourage you to utilize My Top Three Shopping Apps on Monday and every day of the year.
My Top Three Online Shopping Apps
EBATES Founded in 1998, Ebates offers shoppers Cash Back at over 2,000 stores. These stores pay Ebates a commission for sending you their way and Ebates shares the commission with you as Cash Back. You can also find thousands of coupons, promo codes and exclusive deals at Ebates. Every quarter, Ebates will mail you a Big Fat Check or PayPal payment. Using Ebates is simple and, most importantly, free.
WIKIBUY If you shop on Amazon under the impression that it has the best prices, then you are probably wasting a lot of money. When you shop on Amazon, Wikibuy instantly checks hundreds of other sellers and working coupons for a better price. Listen, we love Amazon Prime. Free 2-day shipping is great and, like everyone else, we enjoyed not knowing how much it cost yet that cost gets built into the price somewhere.
Visit a product page on Amazon and Wikibuy automatically goes to work in the background. If a better offer is found, a notification will pop up in the lower left-hand corner of your window in less than ten seconds.
I wanted a Patagonia Vest and went online and found it on Amazon. $140.00 plus tax and would be here tomorrow. Wikibuy popped up with an alternative. $99.00 on eBay. I clicked the link and had my $41.00 savings. The only difference, the shipping was five days versus one day. I can wait for $41.00
HONEY Shopping online? Then you need HONEY. Stop searching for coupon codes and sales. Click on the Honey button during checkout and Honey will automatically apply coupon codes to your shopping cart. On Amazon discover the best time to buy with price history charts and alerts when your favorite products are on sale.
Honey finds all those discount codes and coupons and applies them to see what works best.
In addition to these three apps, check out the list that Real Clear Life provides. It is a go-to for an update on Cyber Monday.
I know you are shopping online. Add these three APPS to your browser and collect your savings. Let me know how you find savings!
