    Re: igive.com...support the HCMA while shopping!

    I'm going to jump in and tell you how easy it is to shop with igive. I started my internet shopping adventure while in Japan and had few opportunities for my shopping needs. In fact, I used internet shopping the first week I was there! Anyway, some of the rebate programs are difficult to navigate but I find igive to be easy. For me, part of the kicker is that is that I don't have to leave my air conditioning to go shopping. (Oh, and it's 100 here today.)

      I bought stuff for my house online - and made $5.65 for the HCMA at the same time! Not bad..I was going to pay it anyway better it lands in our pocket than a big company... which by the way says a great deal for the really cool companies who participate!

        Lisa, that reminds me. I was ordering something for my nephew's birthday this weekend and wanted to go through igive. I got a message that that store no longer participates in the rebate program. Then I tried to go through another rebate program that I sometimes use to give money to my kids' school. That store no longer participates with them either. If I didn't have a gift certificate I'm not sure I would've completed the purchase. I wanted to share the wealth!
