The internet is one of my favorite things ever. So many cool sites and apps and newsletters and access to products to make our lives easier or more interesting – or just save a few bucks (;

Here are my faves – in alphabetical order, of course.

Full disclosure: with most of them, if you – or enough of you – sign up, I get a prize. Even if it’s just a warm fuzzy feeling.

Ebates – get paid back for online shopping.

FinalStraw – I have never been so excited for a Kickstarter ever. My wannabe hippie soul has had trouble getting away from plastic straws. This will make it idiotproof.

Girls’ Night In – why, yes, yes, I do prefer staying in on Friday nights. And every other. This weekly newsletter makes the couch even more interesting.

Givling – play trivia to pay off student loans. Your karma will thank you. Use code AD391646 and I will thank you.

Ibotta – get money back on stuff you’d buy anyway.

Influenster – rate stuff you’ve tried, get free stuff to rate.

Quip – budget-friendly motorized toothbrush with convenient built-in timer. I LOVE the timer.

Qapital – round up your spare change, save a buck on each Target run, even pay yourself every time 45 tweets.

Shopkick – earn money by visiting your favorite stores! My favorite stores, anyway.

theSkimm – morning email with sassy and succinct news snippets. More info here.

Swagbucks – watch videos and take surveys for extra cash.
