Deal #5 – Earn Cash Back when shopping online with Rakuten
Okay so this isn’t a Black Friday Deal but I had to mention Rakuten. I’ve been a member for more years than I can remember (it used to be called eBates) and have earned over $1200 cash back just from using it for my regular purchases online.
Rakuten is a shopping rebate and coupon site that helps you find coupons and offers rebates back on purchases made through tons of online stores and websites.
Most stores offer 1-5% back, at different times of the year you can get up to 10% back though! You can also find coupons through Rakuten to save even more (or use them even if the store doesn’t have cash back).
One of my FAV ways to save is to do grocery pick up at Sam’s Club and use the Rakuten offer which is normally 2-3% back. Groceries are one of my biggest expenses so this extra back is nice!
All you have to do is sign up then add the Chrome extension to your browser or download the app and use it on your phone. Go to the website you want to shop from, then click to activate the Rakuten offer (and / or coupons) then complete your check out as usual.
Every 3 months you’ll get a paypal payment or paper check in the mail (whichever you choose) with your rebate. I get anywhere from $20-50 back every quarter just for my regular shopping.
Sign up for a Rakuten account here then start saving on your regular shopping too!
Deal(s) #6 – Amazon Finds I love
Amazon has some great black Friday deals. Here are a few tools I use for my business that you might need too:
For years I bought more expensive brand mics and they always died in a couple years. The last mic I bought I didn’t want to invest a ton of money in so I grabbed this Tonor mic for under $40 and it has amazing quality!
I’ve had my Logitech C920 webcam for, no joke, 7 years now, and it still works great! This webcam offers great quality and offers zoom in / out and several customizable settings. It’s on sale for under $60 on amazon right now too.
Small Desktop Ring Light with Tripod
I used to have a big ring light and even use the photography lights. They took up too much space and were a pain to set up and take down or move around.
Then I found this little desktop size ring light that comes with a tripod for under fifteen bucks on Amazon! I sold my bigger lights and just use this one now!
I love that it offers several different brightness levels and color tones. It’s a USB plugin light so I can just plug it into my laptop when I use it. It’s compact and lightweight and doesn’t take up hardly any room on my desk or to store it when it’s not in use.
I am rough on my laptops. I use mine for 12+ hours daily on average, tend to drop them, have a hundred browser tabs and apps and programs open. I need a laptop that runs fast, processes all my, well, processes and is durable for a clumsy person. I just bought a new Asus and took advantage of Amazon’s 0% monthly payment plan (if you have an Amazon Prime Account or Visa, you should have this option)
Super comfy earbuds for smaller ears.
I can’t count the # of earbuds I’ve ordered and tried over the years. I have at least a dozen sitting in my desk drawer. I have really small ear canals (TMI?) and most earbuds won’t stay in my ears and make them hurt so bad! I finally found a pair that doesn’t cause all that pain and that actually stays in my ears. Bonus – I can even sleep in them so when I travel or have company – the noise doesn’t keep me awake.
I don’t have an outlet near my desk in my current office setup and didn’t want to run another extension cord just for a desk light. I also needed a light that was small and didn’t take up much space on my desk. I was thrilled to find this usb rechargable mini desk light. It adds extra light to my desk and over my laptop when I’m working. It’s a great little light & would work for any space you don’t have an outlet near or need a small light.
3 Tier Cart with accessories & wood top
I kept seeing these carts at stores and finally decided to order one about 2 years ago. I love this cart because it’s a great deal and includes cups you can attach (which I use to hold pens and markers) and hooks so you can hang things and a removable wood top (which comes in handy as a laptop desk too!) Be sure to click to use the extra coupon that’s offered too.
I hope you enjoy these deals & can put them to good use to help make growing your business easier!
