Valentine’s Day is two days away, and I am willing to bet there are people scrambling around looking for that perfect gift. According to sales data gathered by online shopping site Ebates in the U.S., the most popular Valentine’s Day gifts are not flowers or chocolates, but rather clothing and accessories. These gifts accounted for 30% of total sales during the site’s 2012 Valentine’s Day sale, followed by travel gifts (15%), consumer electronics (8%) and beauty products (8%).
Canadian site Ebates.ca, gives you a percentage of your purchase back in cash when you shop at more than 500 of the most well-known brands online including Victoria’s Secret, The Bay, Indigo.ca and Old Navy. Plus Ebates.ca aggregates coupons, coupon codes and discounts for each retailer on its site, saving shoppers time and even more money.
Shopping through Ebates.ca is easy. You simply begin your online shopping at the Ebates.ca site, click through to one of the partner retail sites and then complete your purchase on that site. Ebates.ca then tracks your purchase and you receive a percentage of everything you buy back in cash. Ebates.ca records your cash back in your account balance and every quarter you receive a cheque.
