I’m a big fan of online shopping, especially with gas prices being so high these days. I don’t want to blow my weekly gas budget in one weekend driving to 7 different stores to try to find a particular item. While I am a huge fan of shopping the sales, so many stores offer great online pricing too. The key to getting really great deals online is to maximize the savings. Comparing prices and finding the latest sales and coupons to get a better deal can be time-consuming, right? Not anymore! Pennyful.com
is a wonderful website that combines fantastic cash back offers, the latest coupons and flexible payout options, to help you “shop your money’s worth.”
Pennyful.com works with over 1500 merchant stores that sell anything from groceries to computers. Shoppers have access to about 40 million products. It’s really hard not to find something you need or want through this site. We have been looking for an inexpensive twin bed frame, so this was a good opportunity to put Pennyful.com to the test to see what I could save.
The sign-up process was pretty quick and easy. Once I was logged in, all I had to do was click on a store or a coupon that I liked and start shopping!
After 30 minutes of price comparisons I found a frame that will work well for us at for around $73, including shipping. That is about $22 less than the price I would have paid if I had purchased it at the first site I looked at! Pennyful.com
‘s price comparison features saved me some decent money right off the top. I could have chosen to pick the bed frame up from the store to save $10, but since we don’t have a truck and I don’t know how big of a box the frame will come in, I opted for the convenience of delivery. The 2% cash back rebate I got from Pennyful.com will help offset the shipping costs.
I truly feel like I got a great deal on the bed frame and the cash back rebate is an excellent reward for using the site to do my shopping. I could have opted to purchase the frame from a store with a higher percentage cash back rebate, but the frame was about $22 higher through that merchant, so you definitely need to compare prices on the items you purchase and not just make your purchases based on the cash back rebate percentage, which varies from merchant to merchant.There is a great Help and FAQ
section on the Pennyful.com website that will answer your questions about payouts, etc., but here are a few of the highlights:
- Two different payout options: Fast Payout ( no minimum payout) and Smart Payout (includes any referral bonuses, but requires $10 “Available Cash Back” balance
- Cash Back can be deposited to your Paypal account or mailed to you in the form of a check
- You can request your check 30-60 days after shopping, depending on the store
