Rock Black Friday From Your Laptop

Take advantage of Black Friday without waiting in line or even leaving your house! Yes, all the goodness of Black Friday from your laptop. So here are my best pro-tips from years in the trenches of Black Friday sales, deals and steals. Let’s talk about how to stack those deals to save you the most money.

Rock Black Friday with eBates

First of all, eBates. If you don’t have eBates, go there right now and sign up, seriously…NOW.  eBates gives you cash back for the things you buy online. to date, I have earned $937.18. They pay out quarterly and you can choose to get paid to your PayPal account or select a gift card. Sometimes the gift cards add 5-15% of the amount you are purchasing! I check websites before I buy anything, seriously. If you sign up here you get $10 instantly, no shopping needed!

Bulletproof always has great Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals. I will be stocking up on Brain Octane, Coffee Beans, Fat Water and Cookie Bars. Plus there is 5% back on eBates, and if you sign up for a recurring shipment ‘subscription’ before checkout (free to do and you can cancel after your order), you get an extra 5% off. So that is 10% off plus the sales!


Target has 1% cash back but also has stacked discounts with a Red card, and the Red card can be a debit, so you don’t have to use it as a credit card. Also, they have some fantastic deals happening from now until Cyber Monday. I am looking for a Nintendo 2DS, Amiibo for the Nintendo Switch and DS’s as well as Mario Plush and Mario Odessy. Plus, you don’t have to go to Target, you can shop online for in-store pickup or get free shipping with a Red card! Lot’s of great ways to stack discounts to save on Black Friday.


So Amazon has up to 8% back with eBates and has lightning deals plus the benefits of prime. Pro – Tip! If you aren’t a prime member, you can join for 30days free below. That’s right. Enjoy all the benefits of Prime for 30 days free. If you don’t have an Amazon Echo yet, now is the time to check it out.


This is the place for all things electronic. If you are thinking of a new camera now is the time. Additionally, their deals on TV’s are legendary, but you generally have to be in store for those. The deals over at BestBuy start today, and yes there are eBates. if you have kiddos who like Nintendo, then check out the Amiibo deals at Best Buy.

If you are looking for a few specific things and not just for great deals, this website has all the information you will need. Targeting a few items that you know you will be purchasing anyway saves you money. Sometimes it’s hard to resist a good deal on an item you wouldn’t have otherwise purchased but you are still spending more money than you would have if you hadn’t purchased it. So the true deals are on the items you know you would buy at full price anyway!

The Apple Store

Don’t forget that Apple does have Black Friday deals. They aren’t always as good as the deals that Target or Best Buy will have on older Apple products, but they are the only game for deals on new technology. Target will often have gift card deals when you purchase an iPad, for example. The Apple store will normally knock around $200 off of laptops and have a few other key deals on Black Friday. So if you are thinking Apple, make sure to check out the deals on their website Friday.


Why This Blog, Why Now?

Writing a blog is something I have wanted to do for years. I have contemplated it, I even started a few at various times but never truly followed through because I was afraid. I knew to truly do this thing I had to be willing to open myself up and share. This is something I have no problem doing in person but just putting it out there, being honest and open online was something I wasn’t ready to do. So what changed?

I changed. I have been through quite a bit in the last few years, things I will be sharing (don’t worry) and I realized that to live my Better Life I had to embrace change, I had to be ready to stop defining myself by what I do and start defining myself by who I truly am. I know I need to make some changes to my life, and that is the plan.

So, after lots of consideration I decided  that there are four areas of my life that I need to spend some serious time and effort fixing, Health, Wealth, Balance and Freedom. So through this blog I will be exploring those areas of life, to find what works and what doesn’t. My goal is that by June 2016 I will be able to look at my life and say it is unrecognizable. That I have improved my Health, increased my Wealth, found Balance and that through those things I can make real choices about my Freedom.  It’s my goal to start today, start creating a Better Life one day at a time. I am ready for a Better Life, aren’t you??
