Representatives of many popular online shopping programs, including Ebates, Upromise, Memolink, and MrRebates, will be on hand to answer questions live and to share shopping tips at CompareRewards.com's annual chat, scheduled for Saturday, November 16th from 6pm to 10pm CT. The chat will be held on a dedicated website, RewardsChat.com, and is free and open to the public.
"Many Americans are still feeling the pinch of economic hard times, and with the holidays fast approaching, knowing how to make the best use of your shopping dollar is absolutely essential," said Becky Ford, founder of nine-year-old shopping rewards review site CompareRewards.com. "You can afford to buy nice presents for everyone on your shopping list, and even earn cash back for yourself in the process, if you know how to use free and easily available online resources such as rewards programs and coupon codes."
Saturday's chat will have experts on hand to ensure that even novices to online shopping get the help they need to get started spending wisely online. Representatives from popular cashback shopping rewards programs Ebates, Upromise, MrRebates, Memolink, and Extrabux will be attending the chat to answer questions from shoppers and to provide tips for maximizing their online shopping dollar.
Making your dollar stretch further offline is the specialty of chat co-host Ginger Jones of AttentionDealShoppers.com. She will provide tips on using coupons, including sources of printable coupons available online, to help get a better deal when shopping in-store.
“Grocery shopping budgets are generally the first place the budget can be revamped when money gets tight,” says Jones. “I teach how to shop for free or nearly free. With a little planning, organization and shopping savvy, at least 50 - 70% of your grocery budget can be saved and redirected towards other items in your budget, for the mere cost of printing what you know you'll use, or buying a Sunday newspaper. Within about 3 months, most couponers are saving at least half on their purchases if not considerably more when following my store ad coupon match-ups, a free service, on AttentionDealShoppers.com."
One of the biggest draws of the chat in the past has been the numerous giveaways to chat attendees, and this year will be no exception. Prizes lined up for this year's chat include restaurant gift certificates, free movie tickets, gift cards to Target, Subway, Starbucks, and Amazon, and more. Whether you are a novice or a seasoned veteran of online shopping, coupon codes, and coupon clipping, Chat Bash 2010 will provide information to help you get the most for your money this holiday season and year-round.
