Ebates Challenge : Who Is a Better Shopper

Ebates Challenge

Well the time is here. The time for me to compete against another blogger to find the perfect outfit or outfits to add to my work wardrobe. This is the Ebates Challenge. I am traveling to several conferences this summer and a first impression is all you have to interact with a potential brand. I need to look cute and I need to stay within my budget. Ebates armed myself and Dana, Pittsburgh Frugal Mom with just $150 each to get the best deal.

In Corner #1

Amee: AKA Madame Deals, Babe, MOM, frugal high end fashion finder, football watching girl next door and may have been called hot lips in several states but I can not confirm or deny that rumor. I love high end looks for less than 50% off the retail price. I am a designer diva on a dime. Recently named a Strategic Splurger by ALL You Magazine, and Women Who Shine’s top Entrepreneur of the Year by Yahoo Shine
