Make Money Shopping this Holiday Season

Make Money Shopping this Holiday Season

The holiday season can be a super stressful time of year. Not only because it’s the end of the year, but also because of all the obligations. Hosting get-togethers and attending them, shopping for presents, decorating the house, baking, and more.

To help take a tiny bit of the financial (and planning) stress off, we’ve compiled a list of all the places you can make money (aka earn Cash Back) this season to help make it a much more joyous time of year.

And maybe you can make enough money to spend a little extra during Boxing Day sales at the end of December…


From gift cards to finding that perfect present for everyone on your list, no matter how big or small (like stocking stuffers). Shopping from the comfort of your home is easier than fighting for the elusive parking spot.

We love: Rakuten Gift Card Shop, Chapters-Indigo,, Etsy


From tinsel to trees, you can freshen up your holiday decorations without breaking the bank. Try to think outside box and away from the traditional holiday colours and/or decorations to things you might be able to repurpose post-holidays as well. That way, you get extra bang for your holiday bucks.

Nothing brings people together like food. Lots of food. Whether you’re hosting family and friends for a holiday meal or taking part in a cookie exchange or potluck, your grocery list is probably longer than Santa’s naughty and nice list. The holidays are also a great time to donate to food banks (but so is the rest of the year).

We love: Walmart, INABUGGY, Amazon, David’s Tea, Rakuten Gift Card Shop

Streaming Music, Movies and Shows

Baking batches and batches of cookies, spending hours roasting the turkey or just shopping online – all of it is made more exciting when you stream your favourite tunes (holiday music, show tunes, top 40, or whatever your jam is). Or maybe you just want to put your feet up and watch a good movie with the family.

We love: Apple Music, Disney+


Many folks travel during the holidays. Whether you’re hitting the road to see family, renting a spot or escaping the cold; there’s a way to make money back.
