- between working full time and going to school at night, I have little time to go to the mall;
- I find it easier to find items organized on a website than through the racks in a store;
- being almost 5'11", I usually need the special Long or Tall sizes, which many companies only carry online (annoying, actually.)
- I can always find coupons for my orders online.
I'm talking about Lucky Magazine's Reward program. If you already subscribe to Lucky Magazine, you can sign up for free, and if you're not a subscriber, you can get a 90 day free trial. The way it works is that when you are going shopping on line, you log in to the rewards site first and look for the merchant you want to shop from. When you click to the merchant's site through the Lucky Rewards page, then a percentage of whatever you spent at the merchant gets returned to your Rewards account, and quarterly you will get a check (or shopping credit, your choice) from Lucky to spend however you want! I made a couple small purchases mid-last-quarter, and got a check for over $20 back. Not a lot, but better than nothing, and since I'm spending the money anyway, why not be getting some of it back? You can use it to pay off some of what you spent (if you're responsible), or you can just shop more (umm, yeah!).
And don't forget to search on line for additional coupon codes you can use when checking out for savings or free shipping!
