Shopping online can be fun. But you know what’s even better? Earning money while shopping online.
Ebates.com, a popular cash-back website, is celebrating its 16th birthday by offering 16 percent cash back at more than 150 stores. But you need to hurry if you want to take advantage of the deal. The offer is only good through May 18.
Here’s how you can start earning money while shopping. Click here to see if your favorite merchants are participating in Ebates’ 16 percent cash-back deal. If you’re not already an Ebates subscriber, you’ll need to sign up with your email and password. It’s quick and easy.
After you’ve signed up with Ebates, simply click on one of the participating sweet 16 stores. Ebates will then take you to a page that has information about the offer and a coupon code for you to use. Then click on the red “Shop Now” button and you’re off.
Ebates will open a shopping trip for you and track your purchases and cash back amounts.
I’ve already used the deal to create a photo book at Mixbook.com. But there are more than 150 stores to choose from, including: Nutrisystem, LivingSocial, Personal Creations, Saks Fifth Avenue, and many more.
There are three ways to get your cash-back savings. After you’ve earned more than $5 cash back, you can have Ebates mail you a check, deposit money into your PayPal account or donate it to a charity.
I’ve used Ebates in the past, and the cash-back savings add up, even when you’re just getting a small percentage back. Sixteen percent cash back is quite the barn-buster deal.
