Everyone loves to give back and help others- maybe even earn a little something for yourself, too. But, as busy parents, we sometimes forget. That’s why I am loving Giving Assistant.
Giving Assistant is an easy way to conquer your online shopping to do list and give back to your favorite charity at the same time. When you shop your favorite online stores through Giving Assistant, you can earn cash back. You can then choose what percentage of that cash to keep and what percentage to donate. Giving Assistant also has coupon codes you can use. For each coupon used one meal is donated to a family in need through Feeding America.
The sign up process is easy. You can even use your Facebook login to sign up.
Once you’ve done that, you have the opportunity to choose what percentage of your cash back to keep and what percentage to donate. You can also choose your charity you want to give back to. We went with Second Harvest Food Bank, but there are a lot of options!
Now that you are all signed up, it’s time to shop! There are so many stores to choose from- including Amazon! Giving Assistant also has a lot of coupons to use with Amazon on top of their 5% cash back.
I found this awesome coupon for Skip Hop products on Giving Assistant so I clicked over to Amazon to grab a cool lunchbox and I also had some other items in my cart to purchase.
Using my coupon, I donated a meal through Giving Assistant to Feeding America. Also, I’ll get 5% cash back for the total of what I purchased- 50% for me, 50% for Second Harvest.
I like Giving Assistant better as a cash back shopping option because you get the cash faster. It only takes days. In fact, I purchased on Saturday night and had my cash back on Monday. You also don’t have to wait for a certain amount to get a payout.
Amazon isn’t the only store with coupons and cash back. I was about to purchase some new Spring and Summer clothes for the kids, so I checked Giving Assistant if any of my favorite stores had cash back programs and I found that Old Navy has 4% cash back and coupons as well! Now, I can buy things I was already planning to order and donate to charity.
Giving Assistant is really a great option for busy moms, dads, anyone really! If you already shop online, definitely check and see if your favorite stores are a part of Giving Assistant. Everyone wins!
