May 9, 2012 · 0 comments

Better stop procrastinating…you’re going to miss Mother’s Day, or worse yet, end up having to give her a half-wilted bouquet of grocery store flowers and a crappy, bent-up picked-over card.  And you’ll pay too much for both.

During big online shopping events like Mother’s Day, cashback rates can vary TREMENDOUSLY among different rewards programs.  I looked up the rates on these popular Mother’s Day merchants at MrRebates, Ebates, ShopAtHome, Extrabux, FatWallet, Upromise, BeFrugal, and, and here’s where you need to shop, and NOW:
