Is it me or is the price of Febreze teetering on the line of slightly ridiculous? I don’t go overboard with this stuff, however, when I do my once a week deep house cleaning, I like to give the curtains, sofa and carpets a little spritz. At $5 or more per bottle, I cringe when I purchase Febreze. Seriously!? I don’t mind forking out the cash for a cleaning product that sends me doing cartwheels down the street, but Febreze isn’t a cleaning product. It freshens fabric. That’s it.
I spend quite a bit of time scoping the internet for people who have a knack for saving money and aren’t afraid to brag about it. I gravitate towards those who take an interest in couponing. Although I’ve been a savvy bargain shopper my entire life, I’ve never fully entered the land of couponing. I truly admire those that do. I’ve watched the extreme couponing shows and I’ve heard stories that land my mouth to the floor.
The fall weather will be here shortly. Like so many others, I get a little excited. My kitchen becomes a haven for those cold weather comfort foods. It’s no longer too hot for the oven to be on, the crockpot is taken out of hibernation, aromas of pumpkin, apples and roasted vegetables fills the house and my soup pot gets a workout. I also start indulging in one of my favorite foods…oatmeal. Most days I enjoy a bowl of it for lunch and, sometimes, as a late night snack if the tummy starts rumbling.
Sometimes life is hard work, and all we really want are some fun & games! Luckily, zuuzs sells those too! Here are some fun books, games, and toys to enjoy during a long workweek or a fun weekend!
These two categories may seem different, but for a new mother they go hand-in-hand. Women always need something to make their lives easier, be it the perfect bassinet or a great set of bowls. That is why we are hand-picking a set of products for you all the time…to make your life easier! Shop away!

We talk a lot about our great features for our members, but we also want to keep you guys consistently informed! For instance, you hear us mention Buying Power often, but are any of you still a bit unclear as to how it works? Here is a quick run-down on one of our coolest features!
What is Buying Power?
Buying Power is our reward to you – by doing simple things, including selecting your favorite retailers & shopping categories, having friends join, and making purchases through zuuzs.com, you can increase your cash back rate on your own purchases. When a direct friend makes a purchase through zuuzs, you can also increase your own buying power.
In short, we reward you for what you love to do – shop & share!
How Do I Change My Buying Power?
Your zuuzs Buying Power allows you to earn additional cash back. Your Buying Power and, therefore, cash back rate can be increased significantly by doing a few simple things:
- Update your profile with your favorite categories – not only will you increase your cash back reward but you’ll also get much more relevant content from zuuzs
- Choose your favorite retailers – selecting your favorite retailers increases your buying power and also keeps you up-to-date about cool offers and sales from your favorite stores
- Have friends join your circle of friends – send out invites to your friends via Facebook, email or Twitter – the more friends that join your circle, the higher your buying power
- Encourage friends to make their online purchases through zuuzs – it’s a double benefit, they increase their own buying power AND their purchase increases your buying power
- Make your online purchases through zuuzs – make regular transactions through zuuzs and we’ll increase your buying power
Does Buying Power Change Cash Bonus Rewards?
No, your Cash Bonus Reward is still earned whenever a circle of friends members makes a purchase. Your Cash Bonus is calculated on the base cash back rate (assuming the Buying Power is 0%).
What If I Don’t Have Any Buying Power?
Not a problem! You can still earn the base cash back reward rate, taking full advantage of online purchases through zuuzs.
