Get out your shopping list. And your wish list and your gift list. You can land serious savings on just about anything you want to buy this weekend.
Ebates is currently celebrating its “birthday,” which this year means you can get 15% cash back on online purchases from more than 400 retailers and other merchants now through Monday. And that’s on top of any savings you rack up from shopping sales or paying with a cash-back credit card.
Just to name a few, the retailers and other merchants where you can currently earn 15% cash back include national names like:
- 1-800-Flowers.com — where you earn 30% cash back instead of 15%
- Boost Mobile
- FTD Flowers — 30% cash back
- J.C. Penney
- Jelly Belly
- Lands’ End
- L.L. Bean
- Microsoft Store
- Pier 1 Imports
- ProFlowers — 30% cash back
- Rosetta Stone
- Ulta Beauty
- Vitamin Shoppe
To view the complete list of some 400 retailers that are currently participating, visit Ebates’ birthday week promotion webpage.
Just note that not all participating retailers are offering 15% cash back all week.
How it works
Ebates is a cash-back portal. So by doing your online shopping through its website or app, you’ll earn cash back — during this promotion and in the future — on purchases from any of more than 2,000 retailers that partner with Ebates.
How is that possible? It’s simple. Ebates receives a commission from retailers for referring online shoppers to those retailers’ websites. Then, Ebates shares that commission with shoppers.
It’s free to sign up for an Ebates account, and it’s free to use the portal.
Win a $100 gift card
To sweeten the deal, Money Talks News is teaming up with Ebates to give away $500 in Visa gift cards to shoppers who already use Ebates or who sign up between now and May 24.
Here’s all you need to do to be eligible to win a one of five $100 Visa gift cards:
- Step 1: If you’re not already a member, sign up for Ebates here. (If you already are signed up for Ebates, just proceed to Step 2.)
- Step 2: Enter your email address into the form below. When doing so, make sure to use the same email you use for Ebates. The contest ends on Friday, May 24.
