If you haven't tried Ebates yet, let me tell you what you're missing! Every time you shop at your favorite online stores via the EBATES website, you will receive a percentage back in cash! That's right, Real Cash --not reward points, not gift cards or in-store credit!
All your purchases will be tracked with a special code that identifies you as the purchaser. When you checkout and the order is fully paid, EBATES credits you with the amount the merchant has agreed for the incentive. Some offer 2% back and others up to 15% back and if you check in regularly, you might find your favorite store offering a Daily Double!
Below is a snapshot of some of my purchases. All your visits & pending purchases can be viewed from your Ebates dashboard.
If you also participate in a store’s reward program, you can still use it upon check out! Look at my Kmart & Best Buy purchases--- I bought the items I was going to shop anyway, but did it through the Ebates website and at checkout I entered my rewards membership number of those particular stores, and have already received rewards from them too in addition to receiving cash back from Ebates. Two rewards from one purchase!
I recommend downloading the toolbar extension for your browser. It automatically detects Ebates participation while you surf the internet and pops up to let you know you’ll receive cash back. It looks like this:
Make sure you click on the “Activate Cash Back” button before you start shopping. Your cash will be paid out via check or directly to your PayPal account.
Personally, I feel very fortunate to be able to get anything back for spending my hard earned money on items I need to buy anyway; and still have enough money left over to buy pricey items at really discounted prices!
It’s a great incentive and I don’t know why anyone would overlook it!
