Last day for Memorial Day weekend cash back "sale" at Shop at Home: get incredibly high cash back rates at select vendors


I know I talk about Shop at Home all the time on this blog, but I can't help it; I love getting cash back for doing nothing but shopping.  Have you joined Shop at Home yet?  What are you waiting for?

Shop at Home is a premier, safe, secure cash-back program.  Join Shop at Home and buy anything online; when you click through their links to online vendors first, you get a percentage of your purchase back in cash.  They have most major online vendors listed.

So let's say you were planning on buying something online at Lowe's. Instead of going straight over to the Lowes.com website, you would first log in to your account at Shop at Home first, and then click on over to their Lowe's page.  You'd click though their link there and then, you'd get 4% cash back on whatever you purchased on the Lowe's website.  4%?" you say?  "That's not worth it."  But, my frugal friends, it is. If you purchase goods and services regularly online, the cash back starts piling up very quickly.  I've gotten over $1,000 from cash back programs over the last couple of years.  And the beauty of it is, you're not forced to do something you wouldn't already be doing...you're already shopping online, just clicking through a different link first.  I know this is a cliche, but it's like getting free money!

Now, for a very short time, Shop at Home is having another one of their "cash-back sales" at selected online vendors, in honor of Memorial Day.  Click here, and check out their list of 29 outstanding online vendors on their special Memorial Day page.  Shop at Home has raised the cash back rates on this select list of vendors, but only until 5/30/11Join or log in to Shop at Home now and take advantage of these high cash back rates at these online stores now. Here are ten of my favorites:
  • Target.com, cash back was 3%, now a whopping, omigosh 15%
  • Kmart, cash back was 3%, now 6%
  • Sears, cash back was 5%, now 10%
  • JCPenney, cash back was 3%, now 10%
  • Macy's, cash back was 5%, now 10%
  • Ice.com, cash back was 11%, now 22%!!!! (except for bridal & engagement Items and watches, which are 8%)
  • Home Depot, cash back was 3%, now 10%
  • Victoria's Secret, cash back was 2%, now 6%
  • Kohl's, cash back was 2%, now 10%
  • Nordstrom, cash back was 6%, now 15%
    I am sooooo going shopping online this week!  Check out my favorites and the other nineteen online stores listed here. Remember, cash back rates drop back down at these vendors after 5/30/11!

    You must be a member of Shop at Home and signed into your account to get your cash back. Not a member of Shop at Home yet?   It's free.  Click here to join and get $5 cash just for signing up and making a purchase!

    Pacific Natural Foods organic coupons


    I'm always hearing from coupon naysayers about how difficult it is to get coupons for quality organic products.  I beg to differ! They're out there if you look.  Pacific Natural Foods has got some great new coupons on their site, including some for their kosher organic products.   I printed the ones for $1 off their soups (I love their butternut squash and cashew carrot ginger soups, yum) and $1 off their non-dairy beverages (soy milk, etc.).

    Free Itunes download of The Cars' "Sad Song"


    Itunes gives away many free downloads, but they are usually from unknown, up-and-coming bands.  Here's one from one of my favorite eighties bands (I miss Benjamin Orr), The Cars.  It's called Sad Song, and even though it's new, it's got a very authentic "Carsy" sound to it, imho.

    Download it from Itunes here.

        Non-dairy Shavuot recipe: honey mustard fish


        I love Shavuot; it's one of my favorite Jewish holidays.  Unfortunately, I don't love eating dairy, or rather, it doesn't love me.  For health reasons, I can't eat most dairy, except for yogurt and the occasional dollop of skim milk in my coffee.  On the other hand, my husband would have cheese at every meal if he could!  On Shavuot, I usually switch off between a cheese-based and a fish-based main dish and appetizer at each holiday meal.  So for the cheese-lovers amongst you, stay tuned folks, because I'm going to guest-post my Rhodes dough Shavuot veggie pizza recipe on the the wonderful Rhodes Bake-n-Serve blog on May 31st.

        But until then, here's one of my favorite fish recipes.  It's extremely easy, fast, and it usually gets rave reviews.  And since it's made with Costco's salmon or steelhead trout, it's about as frugal as fish recipes come. Be'tayavon!

        Honey Mustard fish
        (serves 7 as a main dish or 14 as an appetizer)

        Ingredients:
        • 2 lb. bag of frozen Kirkland Atlantic salmon or steelhead trout fillets (or, if you don't belong to Costco, about 7-8 quarter pound skinned salmon fillets)
        • 3/4 c. dark brown mustard
        • 3/4 c. honey
        • 1 t. basil
        • 1 t. soy sauce (prefer low sodium)
        • 1/2  t. garlic powder
        • 1 t. lemon juice
        • 1/4 cup water
        • 1 t. olive oil
        • 2 t. sesame seeds

        Unwrap and rinse the fish fillets.  The Costco/Kirkland fillets are all thick center cuts, and are skinned and boned already.  Combine all the other ingredients except for the sesame seeds in a gallon ziploc bag and shake well to combine into a marinade.   Pour about half the marinade into a second ziploc bag and then put half the fillets into each bag. Shake well to coat the fillets.  Marinade in the refrigerator overnight (or at least 4 hours).

        Remove fillets from bags and discard leftover marinade.  Bake or grill the fillets at 350 degrees Fahrenheit for about 10 minutes on each side or until flaky.  If you are serving as an appetizer, cut each fish fillet in half, and this recipe will serve 14.  If you are serving as a main dish, each fillet will be one portion and this recipe serves 7.  Garnish each portion with sesame seeds (or parsley) and serve either hot or cold.  Simple and seriously yummy.  Goes great with whole-wheat couscous as a side.

        $0.75 off Golden Blossom Honey



        The honey coupon is back!  Remember to use this $0.75 coupon in a supermarket that doubles coupons, for your greatest savings.

        We know from our experience in preparing for Passover that shopping for a holiday takes place all year round.  Even though Rosh Hashanah is a whole four months away, I'm going to print this coupon twice (using my back buttom), look for some sales, and pick up two jars of this honey for the High Holidays.  Why so early?  Because 1) honey never spoils 2) there probably won't be any honey coupons or sales in September, when the honey will be flying off the shelves.  A smart frugal kosher shopper is always planning.

        Click here for the Golden Blossom coupon.
