Twas the Night Before Cash Back

cash back shopping with green back street

Twas the night before Cash Back, when all through the house,
not a creature was worried, not even the mouse.
‘Cause this holiday season everyone took care
to shop with Green Back Street, meaning money would soon be there

The children were nestled all snug in their beds,
while visions of Legos and Barbies danced in their heads.
And mama in her ‘kerchief, and I in my cap,
were wondering why we still wore headgear to just take a nap.

When out on the lawn there arose such a clatter,
I sprang from the bed to see what was the matter.
Away to the window I flew like a flash,
and spotted the mailman delivering cold hard cash!

It was a little old man, so lively and quick,
I’m guessing he was related somehow to St. Nick.
He opened his mouth and said the reason he came
was because we shopped at each store, and he called them by name!

“Discounts at Target and Walmart and Best Buy and Sears!
It’s the most retail savings that I’ve seen in years!
Your smart shopping skills put you on the fast track
to get more than $100 in Cash Back!”

He sprang to his truck, and then peeled out,
as mama and I both let a squeal out.
But I heard him exclaim, as he drove out of sight,
“Happy Cash Back to all, and to all a good night!”

Yes, Virginia, There is Cash Back Shopping with In-Store Pickup

And down the stretch they come!

When you can use your hands to count the days until Christmas, you know it’s crunch time.

As exciting as that is, though, the fast-approaching deadline also means great care must be given to shopping online, as many stores can’t turn around an order with less than a week’s notice.

But, does that mean you have to put your online shopping skills on hold and resort to browsing and buying in a sea of humanity? No way.

With the magic of in-store pickup, you can still stay cozy at home, finding the right gifts from the comfort of your couch, and then, when those pajamas finally do need a washing, throw on some “outdoor clothes” and quickly pick up your treasures at your local stores.

Shopping through Green Back Street means the cash back will still be there, and your local neighborhood delivery person won’t crumble under the weight 17 zillion packages.

Cash back online shopping with in-store pickup. Tis the season!

Black Friday 2019: Cash Back Shopping is a Difference-Maker

cash back shopping with green back street

The moment of supreme savings has arrived.

This is it. This is the week where retailers nationwide put their best foot forward, offering – sometimes – the biggest price drops of the year in hopes of sparking a frenzied wave of shopping.

But before you dive headfirst into Black Friday and Cyber Monday, remember these three simple words of wisdom: cash back shopping.

According to the National Retail Federation, Americans will spend an average of $1,048 over the holiday season, not including the cost of travel. A serious chunk of change in anyone’s book.

That’s what makes cash back shopping so important. It’s the uplifting answer to those dreaded January credit card bills, earning you money while you’re doing something you’re doing anyways—shopping.

Let’s say you do spend that $1,048 over the next month. And let’s say you do your shopping through Save and Earn, earning cash back at more than 1,400 stores, to a tune of, say, 2.5%. And let’s say you use a cash back credit to make those purchases, earning another 2.5% on your gifts. That’s 5% of $1,048, adding up to a cool $52.40 you’ll be getting back in your wallet. A major win.

Our Holiday Shopper Helper is a great place to keep track of all the items on your list and quickly see what kind of cash back comes with it, and the Cash Back Gift Guide has a cornucopia of gift ideas for everyone on your list.

Happy shopping!
