Get money back by using Ebates
November 15, 2011
Have you ever used Ebates.com? It is the easiest, no-hassle way to earn money for shopping online. I tell you this because I love it, and because I think it's about time somebody makes it easy to get free money.
With the holiday season coming up, most people will undoubtedly be doing some online shopping, and if you do it through Ebates, you could save all kinds of money.
You'll be happy to hear that there are no points to redeem, no forms to mail in, and no fees. I hate doing lots of work to save money, and I promise, this has no hoops to jump through. Simply go to Ebates.com and find your desired retailer (although they don't work with everyone, they have over 1200 stores available on their site including big names like Target, Old Navy, Lowe's, and Best Buy). When you find the site you want to shop on, it will tell you what percent back you will earn on your sale (this amount fluctuates from store to store and throughout the year). Click on your store and you will be directed to their site, and that ends your part in using Ebates. It really is that simple.
How does it work? Stores pay Ebates a sales commission for sending shoppers their way, and Ebates uses the commission to pay you cash back.
Is it legit? Yes! I've used it for a couple of years now, and every quarter I get a check in the mail from Ebates. They notify me by email that my check is on its way, and there is nothing that I have to do to get my money other than wait for it to show up in my mailbox. It's lovely.
As an added bonus, when you sign up, you will automatically be credited $5.
So why not sign up and do your holiday shopping through Ebates? Everyone can use a little extra cash!
