Online Rebate Program: Ebates


There are a couple of programs that can help you save money while shopping online. Ebates helped me save money around the holidays last year. I ended up doing a lot of online shopping since taking two children Christmas shopping was a challenge! Ebates offers you a percentage of the purchase price back via a check or paypal. Think ONLINE REBATES. To get your money back you have to initiate your shopping through Ebates. Each store offers a different percentage back. An example, Bath and Body Works is currently offering 3% back through Ebates. Sephora is offering 8% back and free shipping on $50 or more orders through Ebates

When you sign up, you will get a $5 cash bonus or a $10 gift card at a select store. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, I got a check for $17.98 from my Christmas shopping. To date, I have recieved $78.99 from Ebates. Checks are mailed out quarterly.

And with Ebates, you can also earn money from referring friends who will use Ebates to shop! Refer 3 Friends and you get $30 Bonus plus $5 for every friend you refer.

How to get started:

1) Sign up for an account.
2) Go to Ebates and find the store you want to shop at.
3) When you find your store, click on it and a new window will open.
4) It will take you to your stores website after a tracking ticket is opened.
5) Shop as usual!
6) In 2-3 days you should see a credit in your account!
