Ah it is that time of year. That time where when you are out, you are very aware of the season. From the weather changes to the sales. It seems that it does not fail, I can not even go to the grocery store without being reminded of the fact that the holiday shopping season is upon us. I am one who tries to find ways to not only satisfy those on my list, but also satisfy the budget, because if I do not stay within a budget, I will be regretting the spending later on. From the gifts that I buy, to the extra money that is spent on decorations and food for when we entertain over the holidays, there is so much on each list I have that requires money, and aside from the massive couponing that I do, I also look for other ways to save money. Like looking for those cash back offers, as well as certain sites and services where I can save money. One service that I utilize this time of year, and that I also appreciate when it comes to the savings is Discover. Not only can I use my Discover card to shop and purchase the gifts, menu items and decorations for the holidays, but when I use ShopDiscover.com, Discover’s online shopping portal which features more than 200 merchants, I can feel better about my shopping knowing that I can potentially earn 5-20% Cashback Bonus! Also, now through January 8th, more than 85 merchants at the ShopDiscover.com site, will increase the Cashback Bonus amounts!!
Oh, and that is not all Discover cardmembers can expect to see over this holiday shopping season! If you are a Discover cardmember who has been saving up your Cashback Bonus, tis the season to use it. This is the perfect time of year to take your Cashback Bonus and redeem it for say a $25 gift card by redeeming $20 worth of your Cashback Bonus! Having the Cashback Bonus that you earned throughout the year can really come in handy for the holiday shopping. Like say for when you are shopping for your kids teachers, the babysitter or for anyone on your list! There are so many ways to save and when you use ShopDiscover this year, you can start checking off those items on your holiday list. Like for me, with the holidays and cooler weather, I like to stock up on pajamas for the kids, and when I use the ShopDiscover shopping portal and shop at The Children’s Place, I can earn 10% Cashback Bonus! There are so many online merchants that you can use this holiday season for your shopping from the pajamas for the kids to the centerpiece on the dinner table, the savings just keep adding up with Discover when you use ShopDiscover! Well to help with this years holiday shopping, I am offering one of my readers a $50 Discover gift card. All entries must be US residents.
