Hello lovelies! Today, I have a treat for you. I asked my friend Kelly (a recent bride whose very own budget savvy wedding will likely make an appearance here on the blog soon) to drop some knowledge on y'all. Kelly is going to be sharing a great way to save money while planning your wedding and guess what?! It involves SHOPPING. I know that sounds weird… but read on. It's for real. Take it away, Kelly…
Did you know it's possible to get paid to shop? No, I don’t mean like being a personal shopper or helping some big-shot celebrity get dressed for the red carpet. Nope, I mean a thing where regular people like you and me get paid to shop at our favorite online stores and save money while we do it! Crazy, huh?
I know what you’re thinking: “Come on, this can’t be real! What’s the catch?”
Or, “I don’t get it. Why didn’t I know about this before?!”
I felt the exact same way. But once I got my first Cash Back check in the mail, I knew I had to tell the world about the easiest way to save and earn while shopping online (luckily for me, that also happens to be my job at ShopAtHome.com).
Plus, as a newlywed myself, I soon discovered this website is a perfect tool to use as you plan and prep for your amazing, budget-savvy wedding.
ShopAtHome.com is a coupon and Cash Back website that provides coupons, deals and Cash Back for more than 50,000 stores. And with bridal showers, bachelorette parties, travel and, of course, your wedding itself, ShopAtHome.com is going to save you some big bucks. Trust me, I know from experience.
I got married this summer and got to know ShopAtHome.com very well, as I saved on nearly every purchase I made. I used coupons and received Cash Back on my wedding dress I bought at Neiman Marcus, bridal shower dresses from ASOS, décor from Urban Outfitters and even travel deals I used to go to my bachelorette party in Napa, Calif.
Here’s how I look at it: You’re already shopping for these things, so why not save money doing it?
How ShopAtHome.com works:
1. Register for free on ShopAtHome.com
3. Check out available deals, coupons and Cash Back
4. Click Activate on any offer you want to use.
5. You will automatically be redirected to the merchant site where you can shop ‘til you drop!
6. Watch your cash back add up in your account!
You'll receive your Cash Back check once you reach $20.
It's like FREE MONEY!
See? Easy as cake. Wedding cake. Actually, I wouldn’t know how easy wedding cake is. We had an ice cream truck. 😉
If you purchase an item online that offers 5% cash back, you could look at that as an extra 5% off your purchase since you'll get it in cash back. Say I want to order a $200 vacuum that never got purchased from my wedding registry: I use ShopAtHome.com to discover a coupon for 15% off, I activate it- do my shopping- and not only do I save my 15%, but 5% cash back shows up in my ShopAtHome.com account. That's $8.50 back in my wallet just for using ShopAtHome!
If you shop online even a quarter as much as I do, you are sure to realize the power of Cash Back.
Don't be scared… it IS a real thing.
The hardest part is deciding how to spend your Cash Back! (More online shopping, of course!)

While she has discovered cute clothes at shops across the country, she claims that her closet currently contains nothing to wear. Luckily, she has most likely found three perfect, new dresses at various online retailers, which are now in her shopping cart.
