About Us

Welcome to Rather-Be-Shopping.com!

My name is Kyle and I am a father to 3 kids (18, 15, and 12 years old), and with my wife’s help, we keep this website updated daily with the best shopping hacks and online coupon codes that we can find to all your favorite online stores.

This site was started in December 2000, and after a HUGE learning curve, we have the website that you see today.
