See what I did there? You will after I explain.
I had to buy a few baby items online:
–A Sophie teether. Megan’s blog convinced me I need to suck it up and get this for Genevieve.
–A foam play mat. We have hardwood floors and the area rug in our living room is still not soft enough for playtime.
-A Monkey Mat portable floor. I actually didn’t even need this, but once I came across it, I decided I want it. This will be great for outdoor summer parties and when we go to the town pool and the beach.
Because I want these items ASAP and don’t have the energy or time to trek to Buy Buy Baby, I decided to order online. I know that meant giving up the $5 off and $20 percent discount coupons that are only accepted in-store. (Dear husband: don’t yell at me if you read this). Convenience over cash!
After placing my order and getting frustrated that I couldn’t find any free shipping codes online, I decided to do a price comparison and order the same items on Amazon.com.
What do you know– I saved about $20! That includes free shipping!
I shopped on AmazonSmile.com, under Treasured K9s, Inc. Korean Jindo dog rescue.
(AmazonSmile is a simple and automatic way for you to support your favorite charitable organization every time you shop, at no cost to you. When you shop at smile.amazon.com, you’ll find the exact same low prices, vast selection and convenient shopping experience as Amazon.com, with the added bonus that Amazon will donate a portion of the purchase price to your favorite charitable organization. You can choose from nearly one million organizations to support.)
So not only do I get to shop at home in my PJs, but I get to donate 0.5% of my purchase to animal rescue. I choose this charity because I volunteer my PR services and am mommy to a rescued Jindo boy.
This is my new favorite way to online shop!
