Ebates is what’s known as a cash-back portal. By doing your online shopping through Ebates, you’ll earn cash back — during this promotion and in the future — on purchases from any of more than 2,000 retailers.

Ebates receives a commission from retailers for referring online shoppers to those retailers’ websites. Then Ebates shares that commission with shoppers to encourage them to continue using Ebates. So there is no “catch.”

It’s free to sign up for an Ebates account, and it’s free to use the portal.

Once you’re signed up, all you have to do to earn cash back is:

  1. Every time you buy something online, start by visiting Ebates’ website and signing in.
  2. In the search bar at the top of Ebates’ site, enter the name of the retailer where you want to shop.
  3. Click on Ebates’ orange “Shop Now” button for that retailer. This will redirect you to the retailer’s website, where you can then shop as usual — while earning cash back on most anything you buy there.

You will receive your cash back from Ebates quarterly, as long as you’ve accumulated at least $5.01 in cash back. So far this year, I’ve received three checks totaling $41.11.

Ebates is among the oldest and best known cash-back portals, but it’s not the only one.

For example, Swagbucks.com — a site that helps you earn various types of financial rewards for activities you already do online — also has a cash-back portal.

Other examples include MrRebates.com and TopCashBack.com.

Even if you already have an Ebates account, you might want to check out other cash-back portals because different portals often offer different cash-back percentages for a given retailer.
