With the warm weather gone and fall in full effect it’s just a matter of time before the holiday season arrives. That also means holiday shopping is around the corner! I love to shop and the season gives me the perfect excuse to indulge in some extra retail therapy. Although, I try to do my shopping before the holiday rush to avoid stress and to save money on preseason online deals.
This is especially true for me now that I have discovered, iMyne, a free membership site that allows shoppers to save while shopping online at hundreds of different major participating retailers. With iMyne you can save at the stores you love to shop at for the holidays, such as Target, Macy’s and Nordstrom while earning cash back. Also in the spirit of giving back, iMyne makes a donation on your behalf to your chosen charity every time you make an online purchase at one of their participating retailers.
How it Works
Using iMyne is easy! After visiting iMyne and signing up for a free membership, you are given a profile in which you can pick you favorite charitable cause to support. I like that there is the option to choose a local charity or learn about a new charity through the featured drop down menu.
After picking a charity, you are given access to the shop section where you have the option of viewing the participating retailers via the iMyne website or downloading the iMyne button app. The app is compatible with Google Chrome, Firefox and Safari browsers while also being accessible via smartphones and tablets. Also, your viewing history and information is not stored by iMyne beyond your basic account information.
iMyne is such a valuable tool because you don’t have to refer back to the website to see if the online retailer you’re shopping at is participates in their program. Whenever you visit a participating retailer site (such as Target, Macy’s, Nordstrom, Nike, Staples, The Home Depot, Neiman Marcus and more), a button pops up alerting you to potential iMyne earnings that typically range from 2-5 percent of the total transaction. Also, you can still take part in any promo codes or savings the online retailer is already offering via their website.
Your iMyne savings come after you make a purchase! The money you earned is placed into your account and donations are automatically made to you selected charitable organization. You have the option of either cashing out your earnings or giving them to your selected charity.
To add to the savings potential, iMyne members can also earn more money with a special referral link they can share with family and friends. This connects each person’s account while creating an online community that maximizes earnings for all members and their selected causes.
