Ebates is offering double cash back at more than 500 retailers today in celebration of Leap Day.
Ebates is a cash-back portal that essentially pays you to shop online. Just sign up for an account, which is free and requires you to provide only an email address. You can even get a $10 gift card to Walmart for signing up.
Then, visit Ebates.com before shopping online.
For example, if you want to earn cash back while shopping at Kohls.com, instead of going directly to Kohls.com, visit Ebates’ Kohl’s page and click on the orange “Shop Now” button.
Here’s how Ebates explains it:
People often ask: “This sounds too good to be true, how are you able to do it?”
It really is quite simple. Just like almost every other online shopping center, we get a commission from the stores when you make a purchase. Instead of keeping that money — like almost all other sites do — we share it with you!
Ebates often offers double cash back at select retailers on holiday weekends. Today is atypical, however, in that the website is offering double cash back at more than 500 retailers.
Here are just a few participating retailers offering at least 10 percent cash back today through Ebates:
