Cash-back websites earn you money for something you’re doing anyway: shopping.

With Ebates, for example, simply provide your email address and within seconds you’ll start earning cash back when you shop at any one of more than 2,000 online stores. After registering, take another few seconds and download their browser tool. Then, whenever you search for anything online, you’ll automatically see which stores are offering rebates on that item.

Swagbucks is another simple way to get cash back. Using this service earns “Swagbucks” that can be exchanged for gift cards. You can get all the details here.

If you don’t do anything else, join both these sites right now. Otherwise, you’re leaving easy money on the table.
