Are you making money for shopping online?

Let me preface this post by saying that this company has absolutely no clue who I am, and has no influence over this post whatsoever.   However…if you click the links I’ve provided AND sign up, I get a referral bonus.  Please do not feel obligated to click the links I’ve provided

With that being said…

Have you heard of Ebates?  If you haven’t checked them out yet, you should!  Go ahead…you know you want to!


If you’re like me,  you probably do a good bit of shopping online.  Having a little one, I find shopping is a little more…challenging.  So if I can, I do my shopping (especially for gifts) online.  That’s where Ebates comes in.  They give their members money for shopping online (in the form of cash back) as well as provide them with coupon codes for certain online companies.

When I first heard about Ebates, I thought “cool! what’s the catch??”

There isn’t one…unless you consider logging into their site and clicking the “shop now” button prior to making a purchase online a catch.  If you do, then they’ve gone ahead and made it a step easier by providing you with the ability to add a button to your web browser which automatically activates cash back for you when you are shopping (I’m loving this feature, by the way.  I don’t have to remember to go to Ebates first- one less step!)  They also just came out with an iphone/ipad app- I haven’t checked this out yet but I am planning on doing so soon!!

The nicest part about Ebates is that you do not store your credit card information with them (or shop with a particular card).  Their customer service is awesome too- they usually credit my account with cash back within a few days.  If they haven’t though, all I have to do is send them my original order information and cash back is credited to my account the same day- sometimes within the same hour of my inquiry.

I have been using Ebates since 2011- and I’m not a HUGE spender online, but they’ve already paid me almost $200 cash back.  Pretty awesome!

So, what are you waiting for?  Go check them out and get yourself some cash back!!  And have a wonderful weekend friends!
