I’ve got my eye on a mug warmer.

Have you ever made a cup of something – coffee, tea, cocoa, whatever – and forgotten about it? Have you ever felt bad about tossing it, so you try reheating it or drinking it cold? It’s not always pleasant, is it? Enter a little contraption called a mug warmer!

A mug warmer is a device on which you place your mug (glass or ceramic usually). with you preferred beverage. The heating plate will keep the contents of your cup warm and at a palatable temperature. That way you can enjoy your beverage, even if/when you get distracted by your daily tasks. I suppose, you could achieve the same objective by keeping your beverage in an insulated mug. However, I like mug warmers because they can fit various sizes of mugs, allowing you to enjoy a range of meals/beverages such as soup or oatmeal. Plus, if you are home, it’s less likely that you’ll pull for your travel mug.

This mug warmer has 3 temperature settings for you to choose from. It also has an auto-shut off feature, that turns it off after 4 hours of use.

This mug warmer allows you to choose from 4 temperature settings. It also shuts off after 4 hours.

This mug warmer comes with a low, flat-ish surface that expands its usefulness. You could probably fit a small plat on there to keep your snacks warm (think cookies or brownies). The retailer notes that you can use it to warm your scented candle melts!!

Most mug warmer options come as a stand alone product, however you do have some that come as a set with a mug included. A quick search over at Rakuten shows that you can purchase coffee warmers from various stores. They even show you how much cashback you will received. If you prefer to shop on Amazon, you know they will give you many options. Do you have a mug warmer? Is it really useful or does it end up as another of those things you buy and forget to use?

Where do you do your shopping?

Online shopping is big business. A lot of how our world looks today is because of the proliferation of e-commerce. Brick and mortar stores have closed. Business models have changed. Accessibility and awareness have increased many times over. You can check out some very interesting statistics here.

I too, am a very big proponent of online shopping (despite challenges such as wasteful packaging). Most of my shopping these days is done via Amazon. This is primarily because I have signed up for the Amazon Prime service and get 2 day shipping. It also helps that you can get from a pin to an anchor on there.

However, when I am not shopping via Amazon. I shop through Rakuten. Rakuten isn’t a store, they are a cashback intermediary. What this all means is that when I shop through sites and apps who partner with Rakuten, I get cashback. Some of the stores I shop at regularly include H&M, Target and Nike. When I make a purchase at these stores through Rakuten, I get a percentage of my purchase returned as cashback.

Can I tell you, the most surprising service provider on Rakuten? UberEats! Do you know how many orders I placed via UberEats?? Anyway, if you don’t have a store in mind that you want to buy from, you can always do a product search and Rakuten will provide you with a list of retailers at which you can find your product. While the cashback isn’t always immediately significant – remember it’s based on how much you spend as well as the cashback percentage from the store – it does add up. Every quarter the funds are sent to my paypal account, from which I can then make other purchases.
