Make a little bank every time you help your friends save money - Holiday Shopping Tip

This tip was meant for Saturday but I didn't find a few minutes to live stream it. I was having a wonderful time though so don't feel badly for me! In the bulk of the day, I taught local entrepreneurs some really effective yet simple sales techniques to close more business with more ease. And then out with friends to dinner at a local brewery and then A Christmas Carol. It's an amazing show with some dear friends so there's a plug at the end of this post .. please share and support this amazing show!

Ok on to the business of shopping! This episode of Holiday Shopping Tips is a great one because you can get something so rare - Givers Gain! Good Karma! Money for Doing a Good Deed! See, our goal is to pay as much cash back as we can to shoppers and make the Shopping Annuity and Shop.com a household name.

So we are incentivizing (sharing the wealth) with our customers and business partners that share Shop.com. Our corporate team negotiates an extra 1/2% cash back from our retail partners so we can gift it to our referral partners - YOU the customer! And every time a purchase is made an angel gets its wings...no not really (well maybe but that's a different holiday tale!)...Every time a purchase is made, you will receive 1/2% cash back and your friend will receive ALL the cash back listed for that item.

It's already built in - so you may as well enjoy it! Consider it a well-deserved thank you and acknowledgement for helping us spread the word about the Shopping Annuity and Shop.com.

Other companies have similar programs but NONE OF THEM is as generous. We have no restrictions, no minimums, no activity requirements, no expirations. Just COLD HARD CASH (or better yet WARM SOFT CASH to cuddle up with all your other holiday spending money).

So to get this fun little gift, share the gift of Shop! Use the INVITE TOOL on Shop or share the link at the bottom of that page on Social Media. The more people you invite the more extra cash back you'll earn.

A friend of mine referred her son to Shop for tires on his truck. These were FANCY! and as a result of her referral, he got a great deal and over $50 cash back! She got over $10 cash back on that one purchase. So everyone wins!

Are you convinced yet? Then go on out there and invite your friends! And if you or they need any help shopping, just let me or Bella know! We will sniff out the great savings for you!

 This is where to find the invite tool - it's a link just to the right of your cash back total.

When you are on ANY Shop page, at the very bottom you'll see a "Link to This Page" in green...that link will include your referral code. Share that link on social media and anyone that registers will be your referral and be linked for your 1/2% cash back.

So now my plug for this amazing show....

Comparison Shopping on Shop - plus a great Google Trick!

Today's video is about using www.shopallthat.com comparison shopping feature to your best advantage.

Here are the tips - and some bonus ones not in the video!

  1. Search from the main search bar on www.ShopAllThat.com and you can drill down by price, brand or store
  2. Choose ONE CART in search results to use your cash back toward the purchase price.
  3. See All Offers allows you to make decisions about where to buy based on price, cash back and free shipping offers
  4. You can also browse by category in the top left of the header and drill down to what you are looking for
  5. BONUS - when you are at a product, you can do much more than look at all the offers from partner stores .. you can also set a price alert, add it to a wish list or a trend shop! 
  6. If you choose a product that is NOT part of the One Cart you will be taken to the partner store's site and can get all the discounts and specials they are offering..and even use gift cards and store credit cards because you are shopping from them directly...the referral code Shop sends will make sure you get your cash back
If you can't find what you're looking for here's a special Google tip
  1. Make sure you have Shop Buddy installed on your browser
  2. Google what you are looking for
  3. In the results, some of the options will have a big blue S ... those are Shop partners and when you purchase from them you'll get the cash back and coupons we have curated for you and you don't even need to go back to Shop to get them!
I ended up at the Bliss product - a really super option for stress (and all natural too!). It's a featured/exclusive product offered only at Shop. Get a 15% off coupon at the end of the video!

Thanks for watching! =)
