One of my favorite deal sites for kids items is Zulily. I’ve purchased clothing, toys, furniture, you name it from this site. While there are times that I’ve found items to be the same price as Amazon, most of the time I’ve found the prices to be pretty favorable and in some cases ridiculously discounted. Right now though, on top of the already discounted prices, you can add on two other promotions to make shopping at Zulily one heck of a deal:
- Masterpass promotion: Use Masterpass at checkout and you’ll automatically get $10 off a $30+ purchase. You can take advantage of this offer twice per account. I have a few Zulily accounts! With Masterpass you do not actually have to use a Mastercard to pay for your purchase, simply select the Masterpass option at checkout and sign into your Masterpass account or create a new account if you do not have one (it takes just a minute). You can then add any credit card you desire (including Amex and Visa) to your Masterpass account and use that card to pay for your purchase.
- Ebates: 12% cashback TODAY ONLY while shopping at Zulily. As I wrote about this morning, Ebates is offering 12% cash back at over 500 merchants, one of them being Zulily. So all you have to do is go to Ebates and find Zulily. Click the “Shop Now” button and it will take you directly to Zulily’s website as if you were to go straight to Zulily.com to begin with. You then shop through Zulily as you normally would.
So let’s say you find an item, or a few items, that come out to be $30 on the nose. Note: It must be $30 prior to tax/shipping for the Masterpass promo to kick in. You then use Masterpass at checkout and $10 is automatically taken off your order. That brings your total price down to $20. If you shop through Ebates first, you’ll receive 12% cash back on that $20 spent, giving you another $2.40 in your Ebates account. This brings your total price to $17.60! That is an amazing price for a $30 item, especially when that item(s) were discounted to begin with!
The ideal items to purchase are the ones that come with free shipping. Currently all Alex toys and Melissa & Doug items come with free shipping. There are also a bunch of other random items throughout the site shipping for free. And they are saying guaranteed Christmas delivery for most items. So you still have time!
Anyone find anything good?
