My New Favorite Thing - Ebates!
I know I'm a little late to the party, but I just discovered this new amazing thing called Ebates! A friend had me sign up last year, but I never did anything with it and man, am I regretting that! Thank goodness I rediscovered this little gem just in time for my holiday shopping.
How Does it Work?
You simply login to your Ebates account and search for the store you want to make a purchase from. For example, I knew that Walmart had the toy I wanted to buy Charlotte for Christmas, so I searched Walmart from the Ebates homepage and then clicked "shop now". You will get redirected the Walmart homepage and anything you buy from that redirect, will count towards your Ebates account.
There are two ways to earn money via Ebates. The first is by shopping through the links and getting cash back from every purchase you make. For instance, right now, Kohls is offering 6% cash back on everything you buy. So if I spend $100 at Target, I will get $6 added to my Ebates account. It doesn't seem like much, but when you add up all the shopping you do in a year, it's quite a bunch! Plus, sometimes stores will offer up to 10% cash back. Just about every store I could think of was on here, so it really does add up quick!
The other way to earn is through referrals. Right now they are offering a great referral program that gives you $75 once 3 friends sign up and makes a purchase. To qualify for the referral bonus, they have to make a minimum $25 purchase before the end of the year.
Every quarter you get paid. So if you sign up today, you will get a big fat check on February 15th. You can have it deposited into your PayPal account or have an actual check mailed to you. It's totally up to you!
I've become quite the little Ebates expert in the few short weeks I've been a member, so if you have any questions, just comment or email me and I'd be happy to help. And no, I am not being compensated in any way by Ebates for this post. I'm just a girl passing along a good deal to my fellow shoppers! Happy shopping!
