Tis the Season for Ebates

I discovered the amazingness that is Ebates this time last year, and couldn't believe all I had to do was go to their site first before doing any online shopping and I'd get paid for doing so! At first, I couldn't understand how it worked, but after doing some research I came to find out that merchants pay Ebates for referrals. By going to Ebates first, I can see all of the online promos for a particular store and if I click on the link for the store and shop on their site through Ebates I get a certain percentage of what I spent back in a check.

For example, if I were to make an online purchase through Target, I'd go to ebates first and do a search for Target. A list of their promotions going on will come up with their offer codes and I can choose to enter the Target site through there. Ebates redirects me to Target's site and voila! I don't have to do anything more except shop as I normally do online.

So far, I have received 2 checks in the mail just for shopping online and going through ebates. 

Popular retailers I've shopped online at and received cash back:

~Victorias Secret
~Old Navy
~Nautica (for H)
~Apple Store
~Bed Bath & Beyond
~Best Buy

This comes in handy around the holidays, considering I try to avoid the malls as much as possible and do most of my Christmas shopping online. 

The best part is you get paid for referring people to their site.

If you like to shop online, definitely check out Ebates and sign up today. 

Happy Shopping! 

*I tried super hard not to sound like an informercial and I think I failed*

It could have been worse if I said "If you sign up in the next 30 minutes you'll receive double cash back!" :-P


  1. OMG! I discovered Ebates one day and I always forget about it!

  2. I do bulk of my Christmas shopping online so this will definitely come in handy. Thanks for sharing!
