As an avid online shopper, I try to save every little way I can. There are a number of loyalty/cash back programs out there, but my favorite is Ebates. Apparently a number of you have signed up there too, because Ebates noticed and wanted to offer my readers some amazing prizes! For those who have already signed up through me (thank you!), just scroll down to the giveaway details.
Ebates is a program which gives you cash back every time you shop online through one of their affiliated retailers. It's just a little bit of $ each time, but it's extra cash saved (on top of retailer coupons) and it adds up. Some points to note:
- You must access the retailer through Ebates.com. I keep Ebates in my browser favorites and stay logged in, so I remember to go through them before buying anything.
- It can take from 2 up to 30 days for your cash back to post, depending on the retailer.
- If you return a purchase, the cash back is removed.
- You get a check every quarter if your balance exceeds $5. Otherwise it rolls over to the next quarter.
- Ebates frequently has promotions or increased cash back. For example, see their Valentines Promo.
To illustrate, here is a snapshot from my last Ebates payment:
A few last notes. Ebates' referral program is pretty awesome. Both parties receive $5 in their cash back account after a qualifying purchase is made, so be sure to spread the love if you like the program! I also like that they have coupon codes listed for some retailers. I've snagged some great deals with Ann Taylor and LOFT through exclusive Ebates coupon codes that were stackable with existing sales.
