2 Kids Top Ten – 10 Cool Websites to Save You Time and Money



As you’re doing your spring cleaning, don’t forget to take some time to look at ways to “clean” up your paperwork and save time and money with how you do things online. Here are 10 cool websites you’ll want to check out with some great ways to save time, money or both — and even possibly earn free stuff doing it!


Getting on track with your credit is a HUGE step in save hundreds and even thousands of dollars on insurance, loans, mortgages and more. Stay on top of your credit with the free tool here at Credit Sesame.


2. Ebates

If you’re shopping online, and not using a cashback site, you are missing out on free money. You’ve probably seen the commercials on TV where users get huge checks back, just for the shopping you’re doing anyway. This is easy money and you can still use discount coupon codes, buy clearance items and more. You’ll even get a $10 gift card just for signing up!  Click here for more info and to sign up.


3. Manilla

Ever wished there was not only a better way to keep track of your bills, but also all of those different reward programs as well? Manilla is a free web based service that helps consumers better manage all of their household accounts, including financial, utilities, subscriptions and travel rewards programs, in one secure place online. Under a single password, Manilla provides customers with an automated, organized view of all of their account information, text and/or email reminders to pay bills and unlimited storage of account documents.  Manilla seamlessly retrieves all your account information – current balances, previous payments, upcoming bills due – and stores it for you in one secure place. Most importantly, you need only one password to view, manage and organize it all.  Click here for more info and to sign up.


You do searches online how many times a day? Are you getting prizes for doing it? By replacing your regular search engine with Swagbucks you can earn cool gifts and gift cards for stores, restaurants and more just for doing the stuff you’re doing online anyways. We regularly rack up dining gift cards — it’s a great way to get them for vacations and for gifts at the holidays! Click here for more info.


I’m getting 5 packages today, and I know when they’re being delivered and who from. Want to know how? UPS MyChoice is a free service that allows you to track, hold and even reroute packages. We travel frequently and this is great so that we don’t have packages sitting outside when we’re not home. This is a must for anyone who shops online and bloggers!

I haven’t tried this one yet, but I’m hearing good things! Acorn Points is a new online organizer to help you keep track of your busy day to day life. Create a free account, and you’ll also be entered to a sweepstakes for $5000 for you and a friend. Click here for more info.


This one is one is another one of my favorites for earning cool stuff. Earn points for reading e-mails, taking surveys, printing coupons and more and redeem them for gift cards and more. I’ve been hoarding points for awhile and am getting ready to cash them in for some gift cards to get some new spring clothes. Click here for more info and to sign up.
