To a tightwad, A deal isn't a deal, unless you save 80% off retail prices or more than 50%
off wholesale prices. FREE is even better. The tightwad frugal philosophy
applies to conserving cash as well as other resources. In this section you'll find
outrageous deals. Many of these deals change very quickly due to availability and will not
be available forever. Remember to look at each sites rules and follow them strictly. -
|Currently, one of the hottest internet deals is CyberRebate,
where many of the rebate offers include 100%-off the entire price! Sounds too good to be
true? With 4-stars from Bizrate, over 2 million dollars worth of rebates paid out, and
servers jammed to capacity, it looks like a great deal. How's does it work?
Click on one of the items pictured here. Purchase the item online for retail value. Print
out your receipt. The item is sent immediately. In 2-3 days an online rebate code and form
is available. Print it out. When you receive the item, cut out the UPC symbols fill-out
and attach everything and mail it. In about 10-14 weeks a check will arrive for the full
rebate amount. You have 2 months to apply for the rebate from the time you order the item.
Postage is under five dollars for as many items as you want. That's it. They do all the
work. What's in it for the manufacturers? There are a number of
reasons why manufacturers offer rebates. Sometimes they want to rapidly increase financial
sales numbers, which look good to investors. Sometimes they dominate the market and build
product demand and brand loyalty. Sometimes they also use this process to reduce inventory
on late season items. What's in it for CyberRebate?
Undoubtedly they're selling the items for the maximum refund amount allowed by the
manufacturer. That's where they profit, while providing a quick and easy way for
manufacturers to access the marketplace. Although exactly how their site works is
proprietary, we know they augment some deals to promote their site, and may use your funds
to draw income while you're waiting for your rebate. What's in it for you?
If your worried, don't go for this deal. Leave it for others. Some people just buy one
item as a gift for someone. We have made several clandestine purchases to rate the
viability of their business, so far without any problems. They rate 4 stars (out of 5
stars) with Bizrate. Be careful to exactly follow the directions and print-out everything.

is a great site for both buying and selling media such as books, tapes, cd's, video games
and more. It's almost like e-bay except easier. They police & broker the deal and you
don't have to do any advertising work, just enter the product code. Just register and buy
or sell. NEVER pay full price! Instead Click

is a well designed and easy to use refund site. This site allows you to quickly seach and
select big named grocery items, then print out a shopping list. You have about two weeks
to purchase the items and an extra week to send your reciepts into E-Save. E-Save
fills in all the paper work and then promptly sends you a refund check. Our clandestine
test transaction was nearly flawless, but we included a reciept that was not within the
allotted time frame. A polite e-mail explained our error, but they allowed the refund
anyway as a onetime courtesy. a few days later we were sent a check for $5.25 from
purchasing Cheerios cereal, Huggies diapers, Heinz Ketchup, and Kraft Minute Rice. All
routine grocery purchases. In addition, they allow reciepts from wholesale warehouse
stores such as Costco. To make the process easier, you can track the progress of your
transactions entirely online. Just remember to carefully read and follow their
instructions to be assured of recieving your refund money.
you can buy new books that are 50% to 90% off the retail price. These are great
deals, but you have to buy right away, because their stock rotates on a daily basis.

will give you a FREE 35mm camera just for registering online. When this site opens
it will change the way you take pictures. First off, they send you a postage paid mailer
for your rolls of film and then they will process it for FREE. You only pay for the
postage costs of sending the full set of 4x6 Kodak processed photos back to you. On
top of that, they digitally process them for you to view immediately. Send the digital
images to friends or to use for your web sites or auctions. Here's the catch: Since they
save you money by using online sponsors, you must go to the password protected site to
view the photos or they will charge you a film development fee of $3.99. Still, FREE
camera, FREE Kodak developing, & FREE digital copies!
