Last Minute Gifts for Mom (When your wallet is TIGHT!)
(May contain affiliate links which means Amazon gives me some change for sending customers but at NO additional cost to you)
So Mother’s day is a few days away and you are drawing an absolute blank as for what to get dear old Mom. To make matters worst your sister just sent you a text of the perfect gift and you’ve got well ….. nothing! (Oh maybe that is just me 🙂 I’ve been frantically searching for last minute gifts for mom and had to comb through the ones that either wouldn’t make it on time OR shipping costs more than the gift itself
And what happens when you procrastinate?
Well it normally means a BIG hit to your checking account. BUT DON’T DO IT! Mom, wouldn’t be happy about that and we can’t have Mom upset on Mother’s Day. She wants you to pay off debt and have lots of grand babies 🙂 Sticking to our budget even when holidays come around is what helped my husband and I pay off $30,000 of debt in just 11 months!

Need other last minute gifts for mom?
If none of these ideas work or it is the day before Mother’s Day, you can always buy a groupon. If you haven’t heard of groupon, it is a site and an phone app where you can find local deals for a great discount price! My mom can always go for a hot stone massage or a pedicure! Normally I can get one for under $30!
BUT before you you grab a group sign up for www.ebates.com to get cash back on your purchase!
How do I get cash back on last minute gifts for Mom?
Before buying anything sign up for www.ebates.com. Ebates is a website that promotes hundreds of businesses by giving you a small cash back incentive on ever purchase. There are tons of businesses on there like Groupon, Living Social and so many more. Each business offers a between 2%-10% cash back on each purchase as an incentive. PLUS they usually offer coupon codes, which means even more hard earned cash saved! I just got cash back on a groupon I bought when were in New York. Instead of paying $40.00 for a two hour bike ride rental around Central Park we spent $18! And I got $2.16 cash back! Score!!! Proof Below!
The way that it works is simple 1) click on www.ebates.com 2) click through to another site like Groupon 3) order groupon or item 4) receive cash back on your purchase.
Ebates is completely free to sign up and never charges you a fee! What’s in it for ebates.com? They get a small commission for every customer they send to a site, at no charge to you! So they win, you win with cash back, and the company wins by making a purchase. I use it myself! I was a little skeptical at first but it actually works!
Above is a recent e-mail I got after clicking on ebates first before going to Groupon. $2.61 isn’t much but I didn’t have to do anything for it, so I will take it! sign up for Ebates here.
If you have any questions let me know!!! Below are a few more ideas 🙂
