What is Ebates
Ebates is cashback website that lets you earn money while shopping online. It is one of the largest member-based savings programs with over 10 million users who have earned over $800 million in cash back savings. There are lots of cash back programs, but I believe Ebates has been around the longest and is the most well known.
How to use Ebates Online
We are a community of shoppers. We love to shop – both online and off. So, Ebates has affiliate relationships with thousands of stores and when you shop at these stores, they will literally pay you to shop. That’s right! They give the savings back to you, the shopper. So, my son recently headed off to college. I used Ebates to shop online at Bed, Bath & Beyond for some of his college gear. Shopping through the app allowed me to earn cash back on those items I needed.
And in Stores
You can also earn cash back in some “brick & mortar” stores. Yep! Remember my college son? There was an item we needed but couldn’t get it online, so off to the store we went. You can link your payment card to your Ebates account and earn cash back for your in store purchases too. Keep in mind in-store is not available at every store, so check the app before you shop. Also, in store connections aren’t permanent so if you shop frequently you may need to “reconnect” your Ebates to your payment card.
Best Ebates Tip
I save the best for last! Be SURE to download the Ebates toolbar (for Chrome, which I use, Firefox or Internet Explorer) on your computer. Not only does it notify you when you are shopping at a site with an online rebate, but it will also go out and find all existing COUPONS available and apply all it can to find you the best savings! It’s like having a savings genie on your browser! I saved over $30 one weekend printing photos at Walgreens thanks to this toolbar!
