Five Spring Trends

Five Spring Trends

Spring has technically arrived! Even though some of the country is still enduring the harsh reality of Winter, we have our eyes on sunshine and flowers. While Fall may be our favorite season to shop ( we can never have too many boots), Spring is *very* fun. We have spent some time perusing the blogosphere and picked five trends that we are excited to participate in. What are your favorite Spring fashion trends? 1. Stripes – It seems like stripes reemerge as trendy every few years. We can’t deny – we jump on the stripes train every time since they never *really* go out of style. Stripes all suite a variety of fabrics AND body types. We tend to prefer bolder rugby-type stripes, the options abound. They add a stylish simplicity to a wardrobe. Pop on a great pair of […]

Spring Produce: Shop Smarter

Spring Produce: Shop Smarter

Here at Ebates we are trying so hard to stick to keep up our healthy eating resolutions. One of the ways we are doing this is keeping ourselves very aware of new, tasty vegetables by trekking to any and all farmer’s markets. This past weekend we paid way too much attention to the flowers and dried fruit, so we decided to brush up on which fruits and veggies to pay the closest attention to at our next farmer’s market adventure. Here are Spring’s best produce options:                 Apricots: we are going to grab some, chop them up and toss them in some Greek yogurt. Sprinkle with some almonds and voila – breakfast!                       Asparagus: this is one of our favorite veggies. It’s so […]

Decor on a Budget

Decor on a Budget

Redecorating your place, sprucing up your home, or moving are such expensive endeavors. Giving your place a new look could mean a few new pieces of a complete overhaul. A wardrobe can be updated on a pretty small budget thanks to Cash Back and great sales. Furniture and decor requires a bit more thought and money. After over a year in our apartment it almost seems like we are done filling it with the right furniture, art, and storage. Luckily Ebates has a lot of budget-friendly stores. Great deals+Cash Back has become our home decor mantra. Here are our five favorite store for decor and furniture that won’t break the bank: Amazon’s MYHABIT While MYHABIT might be know for discounts on designer clothes and accessories, their Home and Decor section is chock full of great deals. We snagged some very […]

Winter Savings from J.Crew!

Winter Savings from J.Crew!

J.Crew is one of our favorite stores on Ebates. Their clothing is trendy yet classic – fitting easily into any wardrobe. While we love their designs, we often find that their prices are a little outside our budget (hey, no shame in admitting that). You can imagine our joy when we saw J.Crew is offering 40% off sale items (use code BIG40). It’s the perfect time to stock up!     While there are a lot of Winter items on sale – to make room for the new Spring pieces – there is lot of versatility. Pencilweight sweaters, adorable sandals and swimsuits, great skirts and blouses. The savings are *serious* so we would recommend snagging the items you want (with Cash Back) sooner rather than later!

Fashion on a Budget: LabWorks at Target

Fashion on a Budget: LabWorks at Target

With New York Fashion week on the tips of everyone’s tongue we have been looking closely at great design on a budget. While they are known for their designer collabs, Target has another fashion line that deserves some attention. It’s called labWorks. They offer great pieces at very low prices. Their items have a more ‘designed’ look and could compliment any wardrobe.   One of our favorite trends that labworks/Target are full embracing is black and white. Their selection of neutral pieces is making us swoon just a bit. Right now you can earn 2.5% Cash Back on all these items. Don’t they look comfortable?

Favorite Cinematic Couples

Favorite Cinematic Couples

With Valentine’s Day coming up so soon we have epic love on the mind. Nothing shows the ups and downs of love better then the cinema, but we were unable to pick a single favorite fictional couple. Our list is by no means comprehensive, but it covers a variety of fictional love:             Moonrise Kingdom told the story of first love. It was quirky, fun, and entertaining. The young couple, Sam and Suzy, decide to run away together. We find it impossible not to enjoy this young love.             Pretty in Pink. We couldn’t really make this list without including a John Hughes film. The young couple, Andi and Blane are considered an unfit match due to different social classes. Andi, played by Molly Ringwald, is from the ‘wrong side […]

It’s that time of year when romance is in the air and sweethearts everywhere are inspired to find new and original ways to tell each other, “I love you!” At FTD, we’ve been making Valentine dreams come true for more than 100 years, and for 2014, we offer an exciting array of luxurious gifts that go beyond the expected, and into the exceptional, at a range of prices.

From Missoni to Phillip Lim, Target has been able to work with a variety of very established names in the fashion world to bring customers great designs at budget-friendly prices.

Seeing Red

Seeing Red

With Valentine’s Day coming up SO SOON, we can’t help but be inspired by the holiday’s favorite color: red! It has a quintessential glamorous quality to it  regardless of how it’s used. As the main piece of your outfit, or a fun pop against neutrals, a little or a lot of red can go a long way to add personality to your outfit. Red accessories can be scooped up on a tight budget at Target with 2.5% Cash Back. A red lip is classic, dramatic, and goes a long way. Sephora offers a variety of hues – from orangey reds to bluey reds, there is something for every look and skintone. Plus, you will earn 2.5% Cash Back on your purchase and enjoy free shipping on $50+ orders! Red nails, like lips, are never going out of style. They are […]

Spring Ahead: Pastel Polish

Spring Ahead: Pastel Polish

One of my favorite ways to stay frugal is to completely cut out the nail salon. With some quality nail polish you can keep your fingernails looking fabulous at home. One of the Spring trends coming down the pipeline is pastel nail polish. Luckily, our friends at Sephora have you covered with a great selection, free shipping on $50+ orders, and 2.5% Cash Back. I would personally recommend splurging on a pricier polish – it will stay on your fingers longer so you won’t use it up as quickly. My personal favorite is Butter London. They have a great selection of pastel and not pastel shades. Right now we are rocking silver on our finger nails – how about you?

One of our favorite places to snag some super trendy pieces on a budget is a new addition to Ebates – Forever21. While the quality may not be the same as a Macy’s or Nordstrom, the trendiest pieces may not be something you want to wear in the long term. While the country stays bundled up avoiding the Winter blues, we are eyeing some great Spring trends at F21:   Their dress selection is great – sundresses are versatile an comfortable. They have some boho looks, some geometric looks, some ombre dresses, and a handful […]
