Save money while shopping online

About a week ago I went to Marshall’s for a TJX rewards access event.  P.S if you shop at Home Goods, TJ Maxx , or Marshalls, sign up it’s free.  Every time you shop you will be entered into a sweepstakes, opportunities for giveaways, & special events.

At this event there was coffee, donuts, a chance to win a gift card ( I won $20!) , & free holiday wrapping paper.

I ended up buying this great black jumpsuit. I just tried it on for fun and was surprised it was the right length as well as fit in the right places. Being tall anything one piece is usually a miss.

I also found this Tommy Hilfiger coat which I really liked. It was warm, sleeves were long, coat was a great length, & the hood looked good and fit right. I feel like its going to be a very cold winter so I needed something to keep me warm.

I wanted to wait because I was very close on one of my survey sites to cash out , and one of the option was a Marshalls gift card. Well it didn’t go as planned and I didn’t want to wait. I went back & my size was gone!! Oh no. I was pretty bummed because I haven’t been this happy to find a coat in awhile.

I did take a photo of the tag when I was at the store the first time . I googled it and guess what? It was at Macy’s for the same price! YAY

My deal ended up being WAY better too.

Coat $79.99 ( $85.07 with tax)

  • Used 3 Macys gift cards ( from survey sites) about $64
  • $5 in plenti points
  • $16.xx on a egift card from a survey site

I paid $0 out of pocket.

Here is where it gets good.


ebates tommy coat

You can find the Tommy Hilfiger coat here

Macy’s had a deal if you spent a certain amount you would get back $10 in Macy’s Money

I used Ebates & received $9.60 back

There was also a deal on plenti if you spent $50 you would get back $10 plenti points

I ended up getting $29.68 back with different sites!

Ebates is great and I highly recommend adding the Ebates cash back button to your browser. That way you are reminded to use it. I would always forget, ever since I added the button I never forget.

If you use my link >> EBATES you will get back $10 on a qualifying purchase of $25 or more. Which can easily be done with holiday shopping.

I also suggest signing up for honey . If you want to save a little more money and/or you’re tired of looking for promo & coupon codes this site does it all for you.



What sites do you use to save?

Fashion Haul- Ready for Falling

Savings for me doesn’t stop at beauty, makeup, food, pet supplies , ect.
I love finding great deals & scores on clothing, shoes, & accessories.

It was actually my inspiration to start my blog when I was working at a clothing boutique.

I spotted these at Macy’s.
I headed to the clearance racks just to see if there was anything good. Usually size 11 are picked over and nothing interesting. Then I found these Thalia Sodi Booties. They were priced $31.33 orig. $89.50 then was informed they were discounted even more .. $22.37 then she gave me 10% off making these $ 21.41 with tax!! I had gift cards from a survey site that I used making these FREE. These make me happy for Fall.

Beverly Diamonds Ring

Next is this pretty solitaire princess cut ring that I received from Beverly Diamonds to review. I love the simplicity to it and the detailed band. They sell everything from engagement bands, wedding rings, bracelets, studs & more. They have jewelry in white,platinum, and yellow gold.
This ring looked exactly like the photo so no surprises when I opened the box. Shipping was fast and communication was A+
Their website is really easy to navigate so you can find what you are looking for. When I was checking out the engagement rings, I liked that the name and a photo of the type of ring was at the top. So if you aren’t sure about the name of the shape you want there is a photo. You just click and you can see all the style in that shape they have available. I thought that was very helpful.

* I received this ring from Beverly Diamonds complimentary for review purposes. All opinions are my own.

Lane Bryant
Next deal was at Lane Bryant. Not sure if it is still available but if you text LBTXT to 23705 you will get $10 off your purchase. I spotted the sunglasses first and loved the shape & the design on the arms. They were priced $16.95. I went to checkout and they were on sale for $9.98 ( even better) but I couldn’t use my code because of two measly cents lol. So I went to the sale/clearance shelf and found a bracelet that was 4.98
I paid $5.28 with tax( still cheaper if I bought the sunglasses at full price)
Earlier this week I received a $100 gift card to Lane Bryant from their #epicsummerchallenge promo on their FB. So this = FREE !

H&M outfit

Next deal is from H&M I did my first mystery shop job and I will be getting $20. I could have bought a $5 top or something but took advantage because I need new Fall clothes. I grabbed the oversized long sleeve knit top ($19.99)
Then spotted the faux leather legging/trousers/pants ($19.99). I’ve been wanting something like them so got them both. Funny dressing room moment is when I tried on the smaller size and they were sort of stuck. I got them off but was a close call to having to call someone in haha.
I had a 20% coupon for signing up for their email newsletter.
Total with tax : $38.27
-$20.00 = $18.27
Then used survey money to cover the rest = FREE fall outfit
P.S those shoes are free , got them last year :oP

fashion finds
Here are some things I liked but didn’t buy.
The dress was from H&M, I really like the fit . Deciding if I should buy it.
The snake earrings are Betsey Johnson at Macy’s ($35)
The daisy kaleidoscope swarovski necklace from Macy’s (was $265 now $119)
