What kind of friends would we be without letting you in on some of our coolest finds? When Jazzi told us she's been using a website called Ebates to get paid for shopping online, we were like, "Whatever" but after hearing her out, we thought, "Woah! this could really add up." If you've heard of it, you love it, and if you haven't, allow us to explain: 1. It's basically a shopping savings account that very simply gives you back money for shopping. Most websites make money for referring you, but Ebates just shares the wealth. 2. All you have to do is sign up (10 seconds max), then shop directly at some of your favorite stores through a link on the Ebates website. The hardest part is remembering to go through the Ebates when you feel like shopping, but they even have a "reminder tool" for that, so we've got zero complaints. And the perks? Well, money for shopping and referring friends, no spam, a lot of shopping options (sorry, no Net-a-Porter), plus you get a $10 gift card just for signing up. And the best part? More shopping, less guilt. So if you feel like shopping on the likes of Nordstrom, Shopbop, Bloomingdale's, Old Navy, Saks, Target, Zappos, Bluefly and YOOX - to name a few - at least make some cash doing it for, you know, more shopping. We seriously just made $39.00 on some relatively small purchases we would have made anyway. Maybe it really is magic... -- JAZZI McGILBERT
