Shoprunner: Saving Money on Shipping (and returns)

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

I previously shared with you some information about Shoprunner.  This is a new site that offers free shipping to on-line merchants.  Well, not only that, they even offer FREE returns!  They currently have partnered with stores such as Toys R Us, Borders,, and Radio Shack.  Stores that will soon be available include: Barnes & Noble, Rue La La, and eToys.  They are always working on deals with companies, so the list will continue to grow.

Now, I’ll admit that I stay clear of on-line shopping many times simply because of the shipping charges. Nothing irritates me more than to find a REALLY good deal on something, to have shipping ruin it.  I mean, who is going to pay $7.95 shipping on a $4.25 shirt?  Not me!  That’s for sure!

I am looking forward to actually feeling good about shopping from my easy chair. No guilt.  No worries.  No kicking myself for paying “that much” to get my order shipped to me.  Nope!  I am looking forward to seeing how much I can save.  And actually, Shoprunner will do this for me.  It will actually track how much you save on every purchase by using their service.  What a great way to help you SEE how much you can save.

It can be confusing to know how to use your membership.  Here are some simple steps:

  1. Go through your favorite rebate site and start your shopping trip (i.e. Shop at Home or Ebate).  May as well get paid to shop!
  2. Add the items you want to buy to your account.
  3. Log into your Shoprunner account.
  4. Get cash back plus free 2 day shipping!!!

The membership is $79 per year.  But, think of it this way – if you normally would spend $7.95 per order and will place MORE than on-line orders per year to these merchants, then your membership will pay for itself.    What is great is that you can actually try it for FREE for 30 days!  So, why not give it a try?  What have you got to lose?
