Cyber Monday - Get 10% off at the Adobe store when using

I'm a big fan of (referral link) - if you do any online shopping you really need to sign up! It's about the easiest way to get online discounts (along with Today (Cyber Monday) is offering 10% cash back on purchases from the Adobe store. Not a bad discount for clicking on a link! If you look online you can often find special sign up deals - PSECU has one for their members - so it's worth it to check before you sign up if you're a new member.

    Say you are looking for a digital camera. Instead of going straight to the Web site of a retailer like Best Buy or B&H, online shoppers may do better by choosing another entrance to the retailer’s site. That can be a site like or, or even a credit card issuer’s online shopping portal.

    By taking the indirect route, you may be able to get cash back or earn extra rewards on your credit card — and get a discount or free shipping on the camera.

    “If you can figure out a way to double your bang for your buck, consumers can have some fun at this,” said Curtis Arnold, the founder of “It will be helpful, more than ever before, in this economy to help our dollar go further.”

    While several of these sites have been up and running for a while and are available year-round, others were introduced in the last few months. Many of the retailers participating in these programs are increasing the savings for the holidays.

    At Ebates, for instance, Sephora is offering a cash rebate of 8 percent, up from 4 percent, while Old Navy is also offering 10 percent. Those who have Freedom, Sapphire or Ink credit cards from Chase and shop through the issuer’s Ultimate Rewards shopping portal on Monday will earn 12 points per dollar at Barnes & Noble.

    How much you actually save depends on how much you spend, what programs you use and how vigilantly you watch the sites for the best deals, some of which change daily. If you spend $682, the average expected holiday budget, and earn an average of 7 percent cash back, that’s nearly $50. And if you book your airline tickets through one of these programs, or buy big-ticket items in the electronics department, the savings can add up to much more. Using these programs year-round — for shopping you were going to do anyway — is the best way to accumulate real savings.

    But you still need to shop around, particularly if you are looking for a specific item that’s available at multiple retailers. Otherwise, you may get the most lucrative cash-back offer or the most points but end up spending more than necessary.
