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 Walmart gift card just for signing up, providing you spend $25 shopping online through Ebates within 90 days.
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 2,000 stores. And it’s automatic: no fees, points to redeem or forms to mail in. Rebates range from 2 to 50 percent and you’ll be paid quarterly (as long as you’ve accumulated at least $5.)
Where’s the money coming from? Simple. Stores pay Ebates a commission for sending you their way, and Ebates shares the commission with you as cash back.
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 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 $10 Ebates cash bonus, or a $10 Walmart gift card.
- 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.)
