Have you joined ebates yet? If you haven’t you are missing out on free money back just for your shopping online!! If you are going to shop online, you might as well get some money back!! With holiday shopping upon us, think of how much you could get back!! I do not do black friday and I definitely do not do shopping on Thanksgiving, that’s a topic better left alone for me cause I have very strong feelings about people shopping on Thanksgiving and therefore telling companies they should be open , making their employees work on a holiday that is all about being with family, ok getting off that subject…
Ebates is free to sign up for, easy to do, and very secure!! When you sign up you automatically get a $10 gift card to a store of your choice. Here’s how it works. When you go online to shop, and Cyber Monday will be here quick and is my favorite shopping day, go to ebates first. Type the store you want to shop at in the search box. Now not every store on the cyber planet is on the site but 98% of where we usually shop is. Once the link for the store of your choice pops up, simply click on the link and it will redirect you to that site. That’s it, sooooo easy!!
Once you go to the link you simply shop for what you were going to shop for anyway. Complete your purchase and in 24 hours or less, your rebate on ebates will show in your account. WOO HOO money back for shopping. How banging cool is that? Once you have at least $10 in your account you can opt to cash out. You can choose from paypal cash that is sent right to your paypal account where you can conveniently use it to shop some more and earn even more cash back 🙂 , opt for a check through the mail or choose a gift card to the store of your choice. I like the gift card option because then you can turn around and use those gift cards for holiday gifts!! BONUS!!! The hardest part of the whole process is remembering to go to ebates first before you start shopping. I have missed out on cash back by forgetting to go there and just going to the store and shopping then once I hit the complete transaction button, it pops in my head, SHoot, I forgot to go to ebates, DUH! I have done this a couple of times and it kills me that I lost out on money back. SO now I have put ebates on my favorites on my toolbar so I don’t forget ever again!!
Why give up free money back just for shopping? Most of us do a large portion of our shopping online these days and it’s nice to get a little savings back!! Ebates also offers coupon codes on their site too! When you type in the store of your choice, if there are any codes available they will pop up with the link to shop. If there are none available you can always open a new window and use Savings.com or retailmenot,com for coupon codes for even more savings. SAvings.com is my favorite site for coupon codes!
