Easy Way to Get Cash Back When You Shop Online!

I hope everyone had a wonderful Thanksgiving!  We hosted our annual crowd of 20 or so family members and reveled in the loud craziness that goes along with a houseful of people.  Today, I am up to my eyeballs in boxes and bins as I lug all the Christmas decor up from the basement.  Let the decorating begin!

For those of you who are out battling the Black Friday Weekend madness...good luck with that!  I won't go near a store this weekend.  I have already started shopping online, though and plan to do most of my shopping that way.
Online Shopping Tip - an easy way to get cash back!

Please note that the links below are affiliate links which means, I will get a commission if you sign up and make a purchase after clicking over from my blog. 

Speaking of online shopping, I am sure some of you have heard of Ebates - the cash back website that actually pays you to shop online.  You may have ignored them like I did, thinking it was too good to be true.  I am generally a very skeptical person when it comes to this type of thing but for some reason, this past spring, I decided to give them a try.  Wow!  I am so glad I did!

All you have to do is sign up for Ebates, (which is free to do, by the way), and then look through their links of over 2,000 online stores.  Click over to the store of your choice and start shopping.  You will receive cash back for your qualifying purchases.  How easy is that?  Right now, you will also receive a $10 bonus just for signing up and making a $25 online purchase!

You can also sign up for their emails to alert you of the latest offers such as the "daily doubles" and extra discounts off purchases.  Who doesn't love a discount?

And on top of that, when you sign up for Ebates, you will see the tab where you can invite friends to join.  Spread some holiday cheer by offering them the opportunity for discounts and cash back on their purchases!  And right now, they can be eligible for the $10 bonus when they sign up too!  AND you can get a bonus for referring them once they make a $25 purchase!

Those of you who regularly read my blog know that I don't promote anything unless I really believe in it myself.  That's why sometimes, I hesitate to share something if I make a commission on it out of fear that I will come across as insincere - but this is something I truly believe in!
Ebates - Cash back for shopping

As you can see, I have used this service and already received some cash back.  There is a way on Google Chrome to set up Ebates automatically so you don't have to click on their website each time but I haven't done that yet... I really need to because sometimes I forget to shop through their website and then I am kicking myself when I realize I could have received some cash back!  But I have made some money here and there - which is always helpful!

So that's my online shopping tip for you.  And for those of you who still insist on waiting in line to purchase something at an actual physical store, Ebates just started offering In-Store Cash Back at a select group of retailers.  Now you have no excuse not to sign up for their fabulous service!  After all, you know you will be doing a ton of shopping during this next month!  At least go check them out!

...You're welcome.

Have you tried Ebates yet?

  1. I also recently rediscovered Ebates. I was a member years ago, but never really took advantage of it. Now that most of my shopping is online, the savings are really racking up. I put the chrome extension on, and it has been so helpful and pretty unobtrusive. Also, I discovered that you can get ebates on Expedia.com. When you book something big, the rebate is awesome! Great post!!

    1. So glad you are happy with it too! Just last night I added the Chrome extension which took a total of about 1 second to do! I don't know what I was afraid of before! At least now I won't forget to use it - especially during this crazy shopping season! Good tip on the Expedia!
      Enjoy your week!
