You can earn as much as 45 percent cash back on purchases from online retailers and other merchants this week.
That’s because Ebates.com is currently offering triple cash back at certain places.

And note that these cash-back percentages represent savings in addition to any other discounts — such as from shopping a sale or redeeming a coupon code — as well as any cash back that you might earn by paying with a cash-back credit card.
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.
Ebates is among the oldest and best-known cash-back portals, but it’s not the only one. Others include TopCashback and Swagbucks Shop. Additionally, the free app Ibotta enables you to earn cash back on both online and in-store purchases.
Even if you already have an Ebates account, you might want to check out other cash-back portals because different portals often offer different cash-back percentages for a given retailer.
