I don’t know about anyone else, but participating in the black friday frenzy shopping just makes the hair stand up on the back of my neck. I just don’t think I can handle shopping while being pregnant with a 5 year old boy who always wants to be in my shadow – ughh!! So this year instead of fighting the crowds of people AND the traffic AND trying to find parking at the stores, I think I’m going to sit it out and spend the day breaking out the Christmas decorations.
I’d much rather sit in the comfort of my living room, with a cup of hot cocoa and flip through my favorite online shops with my iPad. A lot of folks are turned off by the idea of online shopping based solely on the hidden cost of shipping, and rightfully so. There’s nothing worse than finding a fabulous deal and then realizing the shipping costs half as much as the item itself!
Now there’s a way around it!! I’m so thrilled that I found freeshipping.com because over 1400+ online retailers are partners with them and offer free shipping to their members! Not only that – freeshipping.com also offers 10% cash back – so you actually get PAID to shop! As an added bonus, if you shop black Friday weekend (black Friday through cyber Monday) you can earn 20% cash back. Some participating retailers include Walmart, Target, Amazon, Gap, Nordstrom and many more. I’m thinking that I’m gonna be doing lots of my toy shopping at Walmart and Amazon just to cash in on that. With all that money I plan to spend, I might as well get something in return, right? I love that you can make a list favorites within your profile – making it easy to navigate through the hundreds of retailers they work with.
