Reader Tip: Saving Money at Vine.com

For those of you who purchase organic/green products, here is a great money saving tip from Rachel H!

I recently discovered Vine.com, which is a site that sells green and natural products, from various different companies like Earth’s Best and Nature’s Path.  I love that you don’t have to worry about whether a product is truly “green.”  Vine.com reviews the claims of all their products to make sure they are either organic, natural, energy- or water-efficient; run on their own renewable energy; are made from sustainable materials; or contribute to a healthier home.

Last month, I ordered presents for myself and my kids for Christmas and was very pleased with the quality.  Plus, it’s wonderful to shop on one site and find products ranging from household cleaners and organic foods to “green” children’s toys and cat food!

If you want to shop at Vine.com by putting in my referral code of RachH, you will automatically get 15% off your total purchase (excluding sale items, I believe).  And, you can also earn 6% back by using Ebates.

So if you plan your purchase right from Vine.com, you can get free Two-Day shipping with a $49 order, 15% off, and 6% cash back from Ebates. Making your purchase around $42 with over $2 back by from Ebates :-).

Editor’s Note: Be sure to keep an eye on Recyclebank for Vine.com money saving coupons.  There were some available earlier this month (a great $15 off $30 purchase for 80 points).  But, since I’ve been under the weather, I took too long in letting you know and they are no longer available.  But, don’t despair, many times, Recyclebank will bring back popular coupons in a few weeks.

Back to School Savings {Printable Coupons}, Part I

Photo Courtesy of ABC News

For those of us in Virginia, tax free weekend is just a few days away (you can see when your state is participating by checking my list here)!  I thought I would share some of the top deals around, so you can make the most of your 72 tax-less hours!  {Nitty, gritty details: During this three-day period, purchases of certain school supplies, clothing and footwear will be exempt from the Virginia sales tax. Each eligible school supply item must be priced at $20 or less, and each eligible article of clothing and footwear must be priced at $100 or less.}

First, print as many store coupons as you can find!  Many times, stores will run “Tax Free Weekend” sales, even though they are not back to school clothes.  They know that parents are out in force and want to tempt you to check their stores out.  It’s one of the times I will take a gamble and use my precious printer ink to get some great unadvertised bargains.  Here are some of the best ones:
