I do my fair share of online shopping (my husband thinks it’s both amusing and a little sick that I have my credit card number memorized), but my retail obsession is your gain—here are a couple of my best-kept shopping secrets:

If you’re shopping online, always, always, always connect to the retailer’s site through Ebates—you’ll earn cash back on a percentage of every order, which is either mailed to you or deposited into your Paypal account quarterly (you choose). It’s completely free to sign up, and who doesn’t love a nice check coming their way for shopping they’ve already done? To get your own account, click here.

Retail Me Not is another handy site to bookmark. It keeps an up-to-date list of all current coupon codes by retailer, so check there, too, before placing any online orders.

The best online sales typically start on a weekend, so make checking your favorite online retailers a habit on Saturday mornings with your cup of coffee.
