If you’re not using a cash-back shopping service such as Ebates, you’re wasting money every time you shop online. Not a member? Now’s the time to join, because not only will you start getting a rebate every time you shop online, you’ll get a $10 gift card just for signing up.
How it works:
Just log in to your Ebates account before you shop online, or install the Ebates quick start button in your browser. Ebates offers cash back at more than 1,800 stores and there are no points to redeem, no forms to mail in and no fees. Rebates range from 2 to 50 percent and you’ll get your cash quarterly as long as it’s at least $5.
There’s no “gotcha.” Stores pay Ebates a commission for sending you their way, and Ebates shares the commission with you as cash back. Simple.
Another way Ebates pays: Invite friends to join and you’ll get paid $5 for every friend who signs up. And yes, your friends will get the same $10 Walmart gift card sign-up bonus you did!
Just do it. Here’s how:
- Click this link, which will take you to the Ebates sign-up page. Join with Facebook, or simply fill in your email address. That’s it: You don’t have to provide bank or credit card info and the process takes less time than it took to read this sentence.
- Choose your bonus: You can get either a $5 Ebates cash bonus, or a $10 gift card from Walmart, Macy’s, Target or Kohl’s.
- Spend at least $25 through Ebates within 90 days of becoming a member.
That’s it! Free money for signing up. Free money every time you shop online. (You can read their complete terms and conditions here.)
