Welcome to Livingston Parish News Readers!

Hi, fellow Livingstonians! It’s nice to see some local visitors coming by CompareRewards.com, thanks to the nice story Carol Stuart wrote about me in today’s Livingston Parish News!
I’ve been talking about online shopping using rewards programs and coupon codes for years to anybody who’ll listen and the typical response I get is glazed-over eyes and, “Uh-huh, yeaaaah, I’ll look into that, Becky,” but now that the economy is getting a little tough, I’m finally getting some people to take a closer look at it.
This is the basic way rewards programs work: a rewards program is a website that gets a commission when someone clicks through their special link to a popular online retailer, like Sears, Penney’s, or Kohl’s, and makes a purchase. They share this commission with their members in the form of cash back.
If you go straight to the retailer’s website (like Sears, Penney’s, or Kohl’s), you pay the same price as if you go through a rewards program, but you forfeit the cash back. Why do that?
AND, the rewards program usually provides coupon codes to bring your out of pocket cost down. For example, you may get free shipping, or an extra 30% off with a coupon.
Need some help figuring out how all this stuff works? Have any questions? I’d be more than happy to help you by email or (if you trust me with your phone number!) by phone. Send a message to comparerewards@yahoo.com and I’ll get right back with you.
I also run TipBlog.com, where I post about deals, freebies, and coupon codes. Take a look if you have time!
One last thing and then I’ll let you browse the site: I also run QRDeals.com, the shopping blog for the QuickRewards.net rewards program, and it has a Help Me Find a Deal feature for its members. If you’d like to join QuickRewards.net, come on over to QRDeals and post your wish list here, I’d be happy to help you find a good deal on particular items you’re looking for this Christmas season!
