I wonder.... what percentage of people shop online and ship their gifts each year. Let's take a guess and say it's over 50%, maybe even 60%. What do you think? I think I can saftley say that 40% of the gifts I purchased this year were shipped. A few of them I actually went to pick-up in-store because then I don't get charged for shipping, which is sometimes better, but I love it when I am able to ship them to my home for free, don't you?!

Today is the last day for many online retailers that they will guarantee shipping by Christmas! So hop to it! But first I wanted to share two of my favorite ways of shopping online!
FIRSTCheck to see if your store is listed on Ebates.com! If it is then that means you will get money back... Ebates = Electronic Rebate! GENIUS! So, not only do you score if you get Free shipping, but you will save even more with Ebates. If you know anyone that shops online, please share this blog post with them! Click below to sign up!
SECONDLook for a store that offers #FreeShipping! I love to shop at Kmart (and pretty much any online store that has a rewards program) because they are always giving away FREE Shop Your Way Rewards points and Surprise Points! Click the link to see what it's all about and SIGN UP asap! Kmart also offers other incentives like Free Shipping when they don't have your size/color that you want instock (and they ship it to your home!) or Free in-store pick-up or Free 2-day shipping (it just keeps getting better doesn't it)! Plus, most of the time if you are shopping online prices are lower! With Ebates you get 6% cash back!
Watch the "Ship My Pants" Commercial below, it's one of my favorites, plus it's HILARIOUS! I just "Ship My Pants" last week.... TRUE STORY!
THERE.... Now you are prepared to do some major damage to your Christmas Gift List and scratch them off your list, right?! Merry Christmas!
