Ebates

Okay, so I found a site that seems to-good-to be true, but so far I can’t find anything wrong with it. I checked out a few e-pinion and money saving blogs and haven’t found any real negatives about it so I thought I would pass it along.

Ebates is an online cash back shopping site. Ebates pays members cash back every time they shop online as well as provide them with the best coupons and deals online.

It’s very simple to use. You log in to Ebates, type in the store you want to shop at, they give you the most up to date coupon codes for that store as well as a link to click on to get to the website. If you click on their link, you will be brought to the website, all of your purchases will begin earning you cash back (different stores offer different percentages). The key is going through Ebates to get to the online store you are shopping at, but that’s all you have to do!!

Snapfish (which I use for ALL my picture needs) offers a 13% ebate, Barnes and Noble 8% and most of the other stores I use (Kohls, Toys R Us, JCPenney, etc) offer an average of 4% back.

So far (from my Black Friday and Cyber Monday purchases) I’ve earned $8.36. Ebates pays you in either check or through paypal, every quarter (after accumulating $5.00).

As an extra incentive (not that there needs to be one!) they offer a 5$ sign-up bonus. All you have to do is sign up and you will receive $5!! This is an excellent program, ecspecially if you already do some online shopping. Why not get paid for shopping?

They do have a referral program, so if you are interested in signing up and using your Ebates account please click on one of the links in this post so that I receive a $5 bonus too!
