How I Get Paid to Shop

As a full-time college student and a part-time shopaholic, I’m constantly on the hunt for the best deals. So when I found out that I can be paid to shop, I thought it was too good to be true – but it’s not!

About a year ago, I discovered Ebates – a service that allows you to shop at your favorite stores and earn cash back on all your orders.

How Ebates Works

Here’s how you can start getting paid to shop:

  1. Go to the Ebates website or download the Ebates app.
  2. Create an account. (Use this link to add $10 to your first Ebates check after a purchase of $25 or more!)
  3. Buy from your favorite stores through the Ebates app or website. You can even use Ebates at some in-store locations!

And voilà! You’ll receive your check in the mail or through PayPal. It really is that easy.

Depending on the store, you’ll get a certain percent back on your purchase. There are always stores offering special double cash back deals. Ebates also offers coupons and savings codes. It’s literally a savings sanctuary!

Where I Get Paid to Shop

With over 2,000 stores to shop from, you can earn cash back from all kinds of stores – clothing, cosmetics, homegoods, electronics, restaurants and many more. The stores range from affordable options to luxury goods.  Ebates truly does offer cashback for everyone’s needs.

Here are just some of my favorite stores on Ebates:

Forever 21 – 2% Cash Back

Sephora – 3% Cash Back

Target – 1% Cash Back

Ulta – 3% Cash Back

Urban Outfitters – 1% Cash Back

Welcome to the Journey

Hi! Welcome! I’m so glad you are here.

This is my first post on my new blog. I am beyond excited to begin the adventure of documenting my style, my thoughts, and my experiences. However, this is not my first rodeo. I had a blog during the spring of 2016, but I didn’t keep up with it.

I know the reason my former blog didn’t live for long. It was a compilation of what I thought was an acceptable fashion/lifestyle blog: cookie-cutter, aesthetically designed, and limited. I felt trapped by the self-titled “fashion/lifestyle” blog positioning. I struggled to create content that fit this mold because it wasn’t organic. While fashion is a big part of my life, it doesn’t make up my entire self. Inspiration sprouts in many places, and limiting your voice only leads to the demise of your success.

I envision this blog to be a well-rounded representation of my life, including (but not limited to!) fashion, beauty, travel, music, and reflection. Through this blog, I want to be everything that I am and learn to be even more than that.

It’s a journey. Join me?
