Hi everyone! Just a quick post today to tell you about my new favorite way to make money while shopping online: Ebates! If you're not using Ebates to get cash back on all your online purchases, you are missing out on some free money.
When you join Ebates, you get $10 just for joining, which is awesome. Then you put the little icon in your web browser and go about your normal activities. When you go to a website to shop, you will see the icon up there in the corner flashing if there is a cash back deal to be had on the site. You just click on the button that says "Activate Cash Back" and shop as normal. At the end of the month, you get a check in the mail! Easy as that.
I have made $50 since joining about 3 months ago. It only takes a few seconds each time I use Ebates, so I figure I've spent less then 15 minutes earning that $50. I've only bought things I was going to buy anyway, so that $50 is essentially free money I would be missing out on if I hadn't joined Ebates.
Here are a few of my favorite deals:
Old Navy/Gap - 6% cash back
Snapfish - 5% cash back
Groupon - 3% cash back
Amazon- up to 3% cash back
There are so many more places to shop, I could never list them all. Ebates even sends deals by email, when there are special sales or double-cash-back bonus periods for Ebates members.
To sign up with Ebates or find out more, here's my referral link. If you sign up, I'll make a little cash, which will help keep this blog running, and you'll be on your way to a nice check in the mail soon!
