Decorate Your Gifts for the Home With a String of Deals

A new house is always something to celebrate, and nothing helps make that new house feel like a home more than a housewarming or hostess gift. If someone special to you just moved into a new place and you want to help them feel at home there, give a gift like monogrammed barware, a beautiful piece of wall art, a handcrafted cutting board, or another practical yet luxurious homeware item.

Here are a few tips for how to shop for these housewarming gifts on a budget.

Earning Cash Back on Home Gifts

Cash Back at Ebates makes it feel so good to go shopping, and here’s why. Ebates will give you a percentage back of every single dollar you spend on eligible orders. This percentage back is called Cash Back, and you can use your Ebates account to redeem your Cash Back for real, green cash. Basically, Ebates is paying you to shop!

There are so many different stores that allow you to earn Cash Back at Ebates, so always check before shopping online to see if you can both save and earn money on your online orders. Or, you can download the Ebates Button if you use a Google Chrome browser so you never miss out on big savings whenever you shop online!

Use Coupon and Promo Codes

Forgetting to use a coupon or promo code until right after you complete your checkout has to be one of the most frustrating things ever because you know you missed out on big savings. Don’t forget about these codes if you can help it. Your bank account will thank you!

At Ebates, you can find coupon and promo codes for each of your favorite stores that sell the hottest home decor, like Pier 1 Imports, Macy's, and Home Decorators Collection. These codes can give you everything from free shipping to extra discounts. The codes are always being updated, so check Ebates often and you’ll never miss a promotional discount.

Use a Store Credit Card

If you’re placing a big order, consider opening a store credit card if you don’t already have one. Cost Plus World Market offers a 10% discount the day you sign up for a card, as well as $15 gift certificates for every 300 points you earn while shopping. If you have a store credit card, don’t forget to use it to rack up the rewards points and get extra savings.

Find Free Shipping

Getting free shipping on your home gifts is like getting a little gift for yourself. Look for places that offer free shipping either on all orders or on orders over a specific dollar amount, or find coupon and promo codes that add free delivery to your order. Casa.com offers free two-day shipping on orders of $49 or more, which is a great deal if you spend over $49.

Shop Sale Sections

I always check the sale sections first because you never know what amazing items you’ll find at the most incredible prices. These items are also on their way out, and when they’re gone they’re gone, so it’s fun to try to find really great things at low prices that you know won’t be around for long. Stores like Brookstone have Warehouse Sales with items marked down up to 50% off, as well as regular sale sections with substantial savings.

Whenever I buy gifts on sale, it means I can buy even more items for people and make them even happier. Over the years, I’ve learned that so many home gift stores have incredible sale sections where you can find everything from kitchenware to bedding to the cutest and trendiest knick-knacks.

Email Alert Savings

Whenever you sign up to receive emails from a store, you’ll always be sent notice about upcoming sales, current promotions, and even special discount codes. If there is a store you shop at frequently, join their email list to make sure you never miss out on savings or sales again. Some stores even give you a serious discount, like up to 20% off, on your first order after signing up for emails.

Watch for Special Discount Groups

Some stores offer extra discounts to people who fall into a certain category, like students or teachers. Art.com offers a 35% discount to military members. It’s worth it to check to see if you can get a military, senior, student, or other type of discount at stores that offer such programs.
