I think it's no secret that I like saving money. I mean, who doesn't? I also spend most of my time at home with my kids, so I'm shopping online more and more. That's why I'm so glad that I found Giving Assistant.
Giving Assistant is a simple, free & secure cash back community for shopping responsibly. I love that I can save money through the use of coupons as well as by getting cash back. But the thing that I think makes Giving Assistant special over other cash back websites is the charitable donations.
With Giving Assistant, you can choose what percentage of cash back you would like to receive and how much you would like to donate to charity. I chose to get 50% cash back and donate 50% to one of my favorite charities, Kiva. Kiva is an organization that gives out loans to small businesses in 3rd world countries. I learned about Kiva back in college and have been a supporter ever since. But there are so many charities to choose from!
So, after registering with Giving Assistant and picking my charity, it was time to shop. I happen to be completely addicted to magazines, so I went through Giving Assistant to order a magazine from Magazines.com.
All I had to do was click on the button that says activate cash back now. I made my purchase on a Monday, and by Tuesday I got my cash back and so did my charity, Kiva.
Giving Assistant also donates a meal every time you use one of their coupons. It was time for me to order some new business cards. So once again, I went through Giving Assistant to order my cards from Vista Print. This time, instead of getting cash back, I used a coupon. I was able to save on my business cards and Giving Assistant donated a meal because of it.
With so many options of stores to shop from, I will definitely be using Giving Assistant from now on for my online purchases.
