Use Shop at Home to Earn Easy Cash Rebates

Get cash back with Shop at Home!  For a lot of my building projects, I shop online for my supplies, and then pick them up the same day in the local hardware stores.  Lowe's even has a 20-minute guarantee; when my order wasn't ready on time once, they gave me a $25 gift card.  Besides being convenient and easy, it saves money to shop online.  There are many online rebate companies, like Shop At Home.  When you set up a free account with them, and visit their page, they'll have links to different stores along with the percentage of your purchase you'll get back in cash.  Sometimes it varies by day, but right now at Lowe's and Home Depot, for example, you can earn 6% of your purchase back, and at Ace Hardware, it's 7% back.  The site will also list any applicable coupons, free shipping codes, and sales for the stores.  The savings really add up if you are buying lumber, hardware, or other supplies.  Check it out here: Shop at Home.  Here's to building more for less!
