What do you guys did last weekend? Have you just stayed all weekend at home watching Netflix? Or maybe meet-up with your beau / friends and hangout in the mall. And after the long hours, or eating, laughing and walking with tiring feet, you will always, and always go home with a nice goodie bag in your arms.
Pretty much the same situation I had years back. When I am still waaaayyyy active to go out, and hangout outside – during that time when I always feel boooored at home.
Yes, many years back.. ahhh memories!
But then one thing that I always, and always love and doesn’t goes away in my system is my love affair on SHOPPING – in all senses.
When you don’t know where and how to shop properly and wisely, you tend to lose temper and patience, turning that impatient behaviour into hate. You tend to see everything in the store looked fugly and sucks, and you goes out still wearing those frowning face, and told yourself – there is nothing to buy in there.
Dugh. Leave those frowning face at home!
(Okay I get it… because sometimes I can’t help, but I do.. especially if shop has REALLY NOTHING to offer in accordance to your taste and style).
Here’s the ugly truth of traditional shopping:
So just to save us time and effort, plus money (coz going to the mall takes you two (2) rides from your place) and that is really and freaking exhausting.
You will leave from home looking-fresh (with your nicely curled hair), then take two (2) rides of jeep or bus just to reach the mall. (Although nowadays, malls and shops are everywhere, but we still choose the place that is farther from our place because that mall looks more chic and sosyal, unlike our next door’s tiangge).
Then you will arrive at the mall sweating like a horse because of commuting, then do some makeup retouch (because you’ll never know who you might ended up bumping into), before you actually goes in the store to browse, (hunt) and select your ideal outfit.. and so on and so forth.
Indeed, shopping is freaking tiring, (no wonder many are hating it) and that’s why I also considered it as a good exercise. Hahaha
Okay enough for the rants…
But, I can’t help it.. sorry but not sorry…
And I know you too.
If we ladies and gents are get experiencing this kind of exhaustion… imagine how much EXHAUSTION most Mothers are getting while shopping.
Most of the time, I felt pity with Moms’ inside the mall and getting busy browsing their items on the right (and carrying their shopping bags) and to their left holding (or carrying) their kid (worst crying kids) with them.
Ohhh please… please… please… have pity with these Moms.
I still don’t understand how they (Moms) can manage to do it…
Anyway, this post is about how can our energetic and sassy Moms could help saves more on shopping and earn from it.
They deserved to be pampered as much as we do….
Or pamper them even MORE!
Recently, I’ve started to appreciate the convenience doing my shopping online at my convenience of my (crowded) working table, and a cup of hot tea.
Sounds amazing, right?
All hardworking Moms should do the same at least once(1) a week – enjoying their own time, free from daily worries, to refresh, uplift themselves, and gain more sane energy physically and mentally.
And I’m not kidding…. Online shopping is kind-of addicting, hahaha.
You just have to open your laptop, log-on to your favourite store online, and viola! Yes it’s addictive, especially when your package arrived on-time.
And we always makes us feel excited to unwrap those shipping boxes! Yes!
I guess every shopaholic, and time-savvy Moms will LOOOOOVVE it!
You’ve been doing shopping online over and over, and you know every shops that gives good deals and discounts (with great packaging!)… Actually you think you can almost earn a degree on shopping – OR earned a PhD on it.
And have you ever wonder – you are so goooooodd on it (talking about PhD) why not do what you love and earn some cash incentives on it?
Would that be possible?
With ShopBack, it’s absolutely POSSIBLE!
As one of the sorority sisters of Rebecca Bloomwood and Carrie Bradshaw, I always on the hunt of ways to earn some discounts, and saves cash for my next shopping spree.
So when I found out about ShopBack, through stalking some of my favorites on IG, I immediately downloaded it, and I tell you - this shopping app is one of the coolest app I’ve downloaded this year.
And I know that everyone – including Moms, including their husbands will LOVE it!
What is ShopBack (in a nutshell)?
The idea of this app is – each time you shop with their merchant partners (they have over 300 partners and getting bigger) you earn a percentage of what you’ve spent. Percentage varies depends on the shops/merchant partners – and your earnings can be used to buy other stuffs online, OR you may choose to withdraw it through your bank account or via Paypal.
Isn’t that coooooooooooooooooooool?!
By using ShopBack, you can buy for your latest clothes, bags, and shoes, order foods, get yourself a new coffee-table and some throw pillows, buy your latest gizmos, enroll for the language school, or even buy your next jetsetting ticket to Europe, at the most bargain prices! All these can be done with over 300 merchant partners combined and simplified in one (1) app that you will actually earn cash too!
No more sweaty Moms in the mall, and no more yelling for frustration – Moms will YELL because they got the BEST DEAL!
… And you’ll always have this SMILE each time you shop… isn’t it beautiful?!
Auntie: "Okay lah, so how ShopBack works? I’ve already downloaded the app!"
After downloading the app or going to its website, you must register for your account, so that you could easily monitor your shopping behavior, and your earnings.
Once you’ve signed-up and received your access via email, you can now start your shopping fun! You can view in the categories the list of merchant partnered brands. It is so easy to use, because the website and its mobile app are very user-friendly, and no complicated flows.
So for each merchants, it shows how much percentage they offer for your cashback/possible earnings, but do take note that each merchants has a minimum purchasing requirements, and a few guidelines in order that your each transactions would be a success.
I’ve masked my own referrals for confidentiality *wink*
Aside from earning cash from your usual shopping sprees, you can also earn more through referrals! Do check the link here for more details how to earn via referrals.
Invite your Amigas or your whole squad to join your network, and earn more. Your Amigas should also use ShopBack to do their shopping, so that your earnings will be credited to you.
For our loving Mom’s here are my recommended sites for you to shop:
Mommy, are you looking for your new sets of skincare and make-ups? Choose Althea, the newest online shop that sells Korean skincare and make-up brands, all purchased and shipped from Korea, directly to your doorstep. Ohh you will be pampered more, coz Althea also gives out freebies for their customers. Use ShopBack to access Althea, and complete your purchase. And you will receive 5% cashback from your purchases.
Just like Athea, you can also hunt for your favorite skincare, make-up and other beauty related items via Sephora. Sephora are known of selling Western brands that are hard to find locally (literally). Use ShopBack to order via Sephora and make sure your purchases are successfully sent. Your purchased items from Sephora are shipped from Singapore directly to your doorstep!
Mother! If you are looking for great deals and discounts for beauty and pampering services, including shop items for your kids and hubby, CashCashPinoy is your next choice. After your successful purchases, you’ll receive a 2% cashback to your ShopBack account.
Once you’ve reach the minimum redeemable amount, you can request it to withdraw or transfer your funds to your bank account or Paypal.
Okay, let me remind you that this way of earning from your shopping and referrals are just perks, so don’t be disappointed with you can’t withdraw ASAP your cashbacks. Just like other incentives and commissions, it takes several days of accounting period before they released your payments.
So have patience and just stay calm, okay? :D
Clicked enter and sent! Shopping succeed!!!
