It’s that time of the year when summer is coming to an end and kids are heading back to school. I’m sure back-to-school shopping is on the brain of most parents right now. Kids need new clothes, new shoes, new backpacks, and new school supplies. The back-to-school shopping season is the second-highest shopping season of the year next to Christmas. According to an article recently published on CNBC.com, families with children in elementary school through high school plan to spend at least $688.62 on back-to-school shopping. That is a lot of money! Wouldn’t it be nice if you could get some of that money you spend back in your pocket?
My little guy is heading into his first full year of preschool this year. Even though I don’t need to buy all the school supplies that an elementary school child would need, he is still in desperate need of a brand new fall “back-to-school” wardrobe. I’ve been trying to stretch his summer clothes out for as long as I can, but I’m getting to the point where I can’t hold off any longer. As you know, I love to shop, but I also hate to spend money. I’m always looking for the best deals to make the most out of my budget. That’s why I was so excited when I found a website that would help me save money and also help me put some cash back into my pocket. It’s called Goodshop.com.
Goodshop is a one-stop online shopping destination for all your favorite online retailers. Goodshop partners with over 3,000 retailers like Amazon, Macy’s, and Target, to offer shoppers discount codes, and money-saving coupons, and best of all, you can earn a percent of your online purchase as a cashback reward, which you will be able to put right back into your wallet. The thing that sets Goodshop apart from other online coupon websites is that when you shop through Goodshop, almost every time you make a purchase, Goodshop donates a percentage of your purchase to a non-profit organization or school of your choice. You will not only be getting money back, but you will also be giving back too! That is an amazing feeling!
On top of Goodshop’s savings and regular cashback program, they now have a new referral program called Cashback Circles. When you refer people to use Goodshop, you will not only earn cashback from your own purchases, but you will also earn a percentage of the purchases people make in your circle. How fun is that?
So where can you use Goodshop this back-to-school shopping season? Well, the answer is, basically anywhere! I prefer to do most of my shopping online these days because as a mom, I find it much easier than dragging my 3-year-old to the store with me. Here is a list of my personal favorite stores for back-to-school shopping where I can not only find amazing deals but can also earn cashback.
Staples is always a great place to buy all those school supplies. I also love that Staples has a teacher discount.
Just like Kohl’s, Macy’s always has amazing deals plus they carry some of the best brands.
Old Navy is my go-to for not only my clothes but kid clothes too! Their kid’s jeans are the best and you can always find them on sale.
Who doesn’t love doorbuster sales? Carter’s is always a great place to find good sales. I always like to quality of Carter’s clothes.
JCPenney is another store that always has great brands and amazing coupons. Who can resist getting a 3% cashback on top of those savings?
Who doesn’t love Walmart’s prices? I love that they have fast 2-day free shipping on purchases $35 or more.
Best Buy– 3.5%
I had to add Best Buy to my back-to-school shopping list because you can’t forget about the big kids going back to school. Many high school and college students are in need of laptops and other electronics for school. Best Buy is always my go-to for that. They will always price match and they have the best selection!
Those are just some of my favorite back-to-school shopping retailers on Goodshop. You will find that it doesn’t end there. I highly recommend checking them out to save the max this back-to-school shopping season. If you want to sign up for Goodshop and start saving and earning money by shopping click HERE!
