ST. LOUIS, Dec. 17, 2010 /PRNewswire/ -- Personal Finance Blog ChristianPF.com published an article discussing 20 of the best ways to save money for this year. Saving money is a topic that is on a lot of American's minds as we figure out what it means to live in a recession.
An excerpt from the article . . .
1. Ebates – Online Shopping Program
If you are shopping online, Ebates is a no-brainer! Basically it works like this . . . You visit Ebates.com, then click a link to your favorite online store (they have over 1200 stores like Target, Kohls, Walmart, etc.) and make your purchase like normal. Ebates will then be paid a referral fee by that retailer and will share the earnings with you. They pay you a percentage (1%-25%) of the purchase price back. It is completely free too and they even give you a free $5 gift card for signing up. I have been with them since 2008 and have earned hundreds of dollars. For more info read my review (What is Ebates?).
2. Get rid of your land line
Many people can save money by only using their cell phones and just doing away with a landline. If you are like me and prefer to use a landline rather than a cell phone, you can still save money by getting free long distance calls using a device called Magicjack. I have been using it for years; when I purchased mine it cost me $20 for the device and it costs $20 per YEAR to use – which equates to about $1.66/month. Admittedly it is a little quirky, so read my Magicjack review to be sure you know what you are getting into.
