This deal ends on 4/2. Combine promotions to save across the internet – note that the ebates 14% deal expires in just a few hours.
Step 1: Go to SYWEVERYWHERE.com and be sure you’re logged in (while you’re there, do me the favor of selecting me as your Personal Shopper – it helps keep the lights on here at Unveiled Savings and there are bonus coupons in it for you, too!) This makes you eligible for the following offer:
Step 2: Search for RAISE.com where you’ll buy a discounted gift card for the store of your choice. In this case, I’m going to stock up on dog food (although there is a super opportunity to make a profit with the steps I’m outlining here by reselling on eBay or Amazon or Craigslist.)
Step 3: Visit ebates.com (not a member? Please use my link – we’ll both get bonuses!) and find the 14% bonus at petco.com
Step 4: Check out using your e-gift card, purchased from Raise.com in an earlier step.
To tally up your savings, let’s assume $100 worth of gift cards were purchase in Step 2.
- Step 2: Discounted gift card savings: 6%, or $6. Pay $94 for $100 gift card.
- Step 1: Receive Shop Your Way credit – 15% bonus and 8% standard, or 23% of $94 – to the amount of $21.62.
- Step 3: Receive 14% back in ebates cash credit on the $100 purchase, to the amount of $14.
Final result: for $100 worth of merchandise, you can earn a $14 ebates credit, save $6 on the purchase, and earn $21.62 in SYWR credit. That’s $100-14-6-21.62 = $58.38, roughly 40% off. Remember that SYWR credit can be used for household consumables at Kmart and Kmart.com.
This deal gets better with steeply discounted Raise cards. Sorted by highest discount, take a look here at how this promotion really adds up.
Take care at ebates to ensure the vendor doesn’t deny rewards with the payment of gift cards. Many will claim this, few will actually impose it. Your choice, but I would continue without concern.
Remember the SYW promotion is limited to a $50 bonus, so you’re good on up to ~$350 value gift cards at Raise.com before that tops out.
Feel confident using whatever coupons you have. Ebates will say that external coupons will invalidate the returns, but I’ve never seen it happen. There’s always a chance, but this promotion gets better when you stack other savings. Sears has a bunch of wild points back offers going on through this evening, so consider those!
