Finally, an opportunity.......
The older I get, the more ways I look for to enable me to go about my business with as little work as possible involved. If I can find a way to get supplies into my house without driving to the store, parking, walking on ice and snow into the store and then spending all kinds of time looking for items, paying for them and then having to unload them all and get them into the house.....I will jump at the chance. I have turned to online shopping for a lot of things, but only if I can score free shipping. And yes....I know the trick about charging more for items to make up for the so-called free shipping. I comparison shop so I don't get into that trap.
I usually go to Amazon.com or Walmart.com every month to replenish my supplies. Well, as I was shopping at Amazon today, the site referred me to another site for an item they no longer had in stock. I went there and boy oh boy was I ever surprised. The name of the site is Soap.com and upon reading its history I find out that Amazon purchased it a few years ago. This is a wonderful place to shop; the prices are amazing and if you purchase over $49, you are eligible for FREE two-day shipping! First time buyers also got 15% off their orders so I went ahead and made my purchases. After I finished, I read a little more about some of their perks and this is where YOU come in. If you go to this site and make some purchases (this has to be the first purchase you've ever made from them) and put MY referral code in when you're checking out, you will score TWENTY PERCENT OFF that order. Isn't that great? My referral code is VALY3626. If you use it, they will also donate $5 to charity for me. Remember, it's SOAP.COM And they sell a whole lot more than just soap....there are several other areas you can also shop like wag.com (for dogs) and yoyo.com for kids just to name a couple. You can get 20% off each site but only for the first purchase. In other words, if you buy today from soap.com and use the 20% off, you could buy something later from wag.com and get another 20% off by using the referral code. You can get to those other sites right from soap.com, as it's all the same company, just different categories.
I see this as a win-win situation and hope you enjoy your savings. By the way, I had three tabs open at once, comparing their prices and they were the lowest....between Amazon and Walmart, except for Gain laundry detergent....Amazon won out there.
So here's my thank you for sticking with me and my unpredictable posting.
