Things I Love: Ebates

Where it pays to shop online. 
Since Black Friday and Cyber Monday are just around the corner, I thought I'd share Ebates - my favorite way to earn cash back when shopping online. If I try to describe it to you, you're going to say it's too good to be true. But I promise - there are no strings attached.

After signing up for an account it's really simple to use. Let's say you want to shop online at Target. In the search bar type in "Target." In the search results you'll see Target is offering 2% cash back through Ebates plus free shipping on orders $50+. Click on the "Shop Now" button and it redirects you right to the Target website and you're finished. Easy, peasey, lemon squeezey. It's honestly that simple. Crazy right?

If you're not convinced here's how it works according to "The Lazy Coupon Lady" -
  • XYZ cash back website negotiates a 15% cash back rate with Office Depot.
  • You earn 10% cash back for every purchase made by clicking through XYZ.
  • You buy something for $50 by clicking through from XYZ to
  • You accrue $5 cash back into your XYZ account (Office Depot accrues the remaining 5%).
Four times a year they write you a "Big Fat Check" as they call them. You can get it in the mail, add it to your PayPal account or donate it to your favorite charity. Plus they have a rewards program for when you refer friends -

Guys I wouldn't lead you astray. If you're planning on doing a lot of online shopping this holiday season you should definitely check out Ebates!
