Shop Online, Get Cashback!

Every now and then I come across some great tips for saving while shopping- here's one that I'm excited about, thought I'd share! :)

Like most of you, I love getting new makeup! But of course, it adds up, so any discount I can get, I usually take! So you bet that I'm really excited about Bing Cashback, a service from the relatively new bing.com, which refunds a small percentage of your online purchases. Unlike a discount code that automatically reduces your checkout price, this refunds a certain percentage of your purchase into your bing.com account AFTER you have checked out. When your account reaches at least $5, you can have your money transferred to your bank account, paypal, amazon, or opt for a physical check. However,  the site states that it may take a bit to get your first deposit (up to 60 days), so be patient at the get-go!

I signed up the other day after learning that bing.com offers 10% cashback on Sephora purchases. That means Sephora's upcoming 15% off sale is actually 25% when you shop through Bing! So, if you were planning to purchase online anyways, it may behoove you to sign up with Bing.com. Also, I bought a couple of MAC items from Nordstrom.com yesterday, and was surprised to find an e-mail in my inbox today from bing.com saying that I earned 4% cashback- and I didn't even start my purchase process at bing! I just went straight to Nordstrom's site! So it's pretty smart, this bing thing. :)

Anyways, I don't get any incentives or rewards for telling you about this, but I figure if you are already shopping at major online retailers, it is nice to get a bit back- if nothing else, at least it covers tax or shipping charges. :) Also, I should mention that maccosmetics.com does not participate in Bing cashback, but other retailers such as Macy's and Nordstrom DO participate.
