Color Blocking + Ebates Shopping Cash Back

Color Blocking

Linking up with Friday Fancies... this week the theme is color blocking. I love the orange and pink combo and the tan and gold accessories are the perfect way to temper the brightness of the hot pink and bright orange pieces.

Also, since I've been doing a lot of posts on shopping lately I thought I should mention the website Ebates. Basically it's a site that gives you cash back on all of your online shopping.

So, when I was shopping the J.Crew summer sale this week I made sure to click through to J.Crew through the Ebates website and they'll put 4% cash back into my account (the amounts vary from website to website - I got as much as 13% back at oldnavy.com one time during a promotion - but they are usually between 3% and 10%).

Checks are sent out once a quarter and you get a $10 gift card after you make your first $50 purchase through the site. It adds up quickly, I literally do all my shopping for everything online now just to get the cash in my Ebates account and I usually get a check of about $20-$30 a quarter. It's not a ton but it's a nice little surprise in the mail! Plus, if you buy more expensive things than I can afford on my budget then the 4% here and there can add up to a lot more.

Full disclosure - join through this link and I'll get credit for new people signing up, which will, of course, make my day!
