For those of you that have no idea what Ebates is (you’re really missing out!), Ebates is a GREAT way to make sure you ALWAYS get a “discount” when you shop online – whether or not you have a coupon!
How, you ask? Well, it’s because they offer cash back on your purchases at over 1,200 online sites/stores. There are no points to redeem, no forms to mail in, and no fees. Stores pay Ebates a sales commission for sending shoppers their way, and Ebates uses that commission to turn around and pay you cash back on your purchase – cool, huh?
Since you do not have to enter any special codes, this is my #1 way to “Stack” savings for when I do have a checkout code.
EXAMPLE: Well for instance, lets say I have a 20% off code to use on the Body Shop website. Ebates offers 10% cash back on that particular site so if I shop thru my free Ebates account link, I am “stacking” my savings by:
- getting the 20% off instantly at checkout from my coupon
- then in a couple days, I will get 10% of my purchase deposited into my Ebates account!
Ebates will mail you a Big Fat Check once every 3 months :)
Oh, and if you sign up with Ebates through this special link, they are giving my readers a $5 sign up bonus!
*You will get this bonus once you have made any $25+ purchase through one of their links and it will be mailed to you with your cash back earnings in your Big Fat Check!
