You’ve received the invitation and you’re excited to attend the upcoming shower! The only thing that would make it better would be finding a way to save on the shower gift you’ll be purchasing. Or better yet, be able to spend more than you had originally budgeted!
Well, look no further because, whether you’re shopping for a baby or wedding shower, I’m going to show you two simple ways to save on shower gifts.
Purchase Gifts with Discounted Vouchers and eGifts
I’ll be honest, when I first learned about discounted vouchers, I thought it was too good to be true! But I’m here to tell you that I’ve used these vouchers and they really work!
How They Work:
Raise offers Vouchers and eGifts at a discounted rate. Browse Raise’s huge selection of stores, choose the voucher you’d like to purchase and click the Buy Now Button. Once your purchase is complete, your voucher will be sent to your email within 24 hours. You’ll have saved up to 20% in just a few short minutes!
Below are just a few of the stores that offer vouchers and eGifts through Raise.
Wedding Shower Gifts: Belk, Kohl’s, Bed, Bath and Beyond, Target, JC Penney, Home Depot, Pottery Barn, Lowe’s, and Walmart
Baby Shower Gifts: Babies R Us (or Toys R Us), Target, and Pottery Barn Kids
Purchasing Your Gift
In Store: Print your voucher and take it to the store. At checkout, hand the cashier your voucher (it’s stated on the voucher, but you’ll want to let the cashier know to ring it up as a gift card) to apply your discount.
Online: Enter the account and pin number of the eGift in the gift card option at checkout to apply your discount.
Note: eGifts can be redeemed online only and Vouchers can be printed and redeemed in store. New Raise customers can also receive $5 off your $75 purchase when you use promo code RAISE75AF.
Earn Cashback Through Ebates with Online Purchases
Perhaps you’ve received an invitation, you live out of town and plan on mailing your gift. In addition to using the eGifts from Raise, you can also earn cashback on your purchases when you shop through Ebates. (You’ll receive a percentage of your purchase.)
How It Works:
Head over to Ebates and select the store you’ll be shopping at. When you choose the store, you will be redirected to their website. Add the items to your cart and checkout as normal (don’t forget to add your Raise eGift at checkout).
Within a few days of your purchase, you will receive an email stating how much cash Ebates has credited to your account. Payments are sent out quarterly (via check or Paypal).
