Most people have heard of Ebates, which is a website offering cash back when you shop online at certain (just about any) store.
When someone first told me, I was sure there had to be a catch, like a fee of some sort. But, I am a year in and there are no catches. You just get money back–I have gotten $150 in the last year.
All you do is create an account ( if you use this referral link, or enter my email address when it asks who referred you, I get credit), log in before you do your online shopping, and wait for your cash back check to arrive.
Just for signing up and making your first purchase, you get $10. The cash back amount varies by store and by time. On Cyber Monday, for example, it was double the normal cash back amount at most stores.
So for a quick example. Say I want to buy something at Carter’s.
I log into my Ebates account (or open the app on my phone) and search for Carter’s to find the store.
It’s that easy! Give it a try (use my link pretty please!) and let me know if you need any help.
How it works: You get a percentage of cash back for pitches made online. Just log into ebates and access the store of your choice through their app or website.
Bonus: $10 after you use it the first time.
Referral payment: $25 for the first friend, $5 each for subsequent people.
Getting your money: They mail you a check four times a year.
