I was introduced to Ebates a few years ago by my darling mother and loved it from the get-go. This website is so simple to use. It takes absolutely no extra time to use and it’s free, of course!
Here’s what the Ebates website has to say:
“Ebates is the pioneer and leader of online cash back shopping. Ebates pays members cash back every time they shop online as well as provide them with the best coupons and deals online. Founded in 1998, Ebates Inc.’s websites have paid over $200 million in cash to its members.”
Here’s how simple it is to start getting paid to shop:
- Sign up! It’s free to sign up and they give you a sign up bonus! This bonus has a time limit on it so make sure you sign up when you are actually ready to purchase something.
- Start all your online shopping at Ebates.com. There are 1600 online retailers available to shop from. Some of which you are probably already shopping at, so you might as well earn some cash in the process.
- Shop at the store of your choosing and earn your rebate. Each store gives you a percentage of your purchases back to you in cash. This cash is stored in your Ebates account and will be sent out quarterly to you in the form of a check or Paypal deposit as long as you met the minimum requirement. I think the requirement is $10 or $15, if you do not have that much by the end of the quarter it will roll over to the next quarter.
I loved getting that check in the mail every few months but now I have it deposited into my Paypal account. So awesome! I can turn around and spend it or transfer it to my bank account.
Ebates has now made it even simpler to make sure you are getting all your cash back.
They now have the cash back button you can install on your computer. This button is so cool! It will alert you if cash-back is available on the website where you are shopping. In some cases you will not have to do anything to activate the earnings. In other cases you will have to do a little clicking work.
The website is easy to navigate through. They also list coupon codes that are available for the retailer where you are shopping.
I am telling you this is the best cash back site! You are going to LOVE Ebates! I have received a total of $104.01 in the year and a half I have been using Ebates. That is just from shopping at retailers like Target.com, Ulta.com, and Vitacost.com. I know $104.01 does not seem like a lot of money, but I do not do a whole lot of online shopping. In fact, it has only been since Pie was born that I started shopping more online. Having two babies will do that to you!
Do you use a cash-back site like Ebates? What’s your experience been like?
Have a blessed day!
