It might be a little late to buy a Valentine’s Day gift online, but Feb. 14 is still a great day to earn cash back on other things you might need.

On Wednesday, Ebates is offering 14 percent cash back at certain retailers.

Additionally, now through Feb. 19, the cash-back website is offering double cash back at other specific retailers — including Walmart — as part of a weeklong Presidents Day Week promotion.

The Valentine’s Day promotion

Among others, the retailers at which you can earn 14 percent cash back on purchases made Wednesday include:

  • 1-800-Flowers.com
  • American Eagle
  • Bobbi Brown Cosmetics
  • Clinique
  • Dick’s Sporting Goods
  • Finish Line
  • Lancome
  • Lane Bryant
  • Lord & Taylor
  • Orbitz
  • Philosophy
  • Sally Beauty Supply
  • Tarte Cosmetics

The ‘Presidents Day Week’ promotion

The retailers at which you can earn double cash back on purchases made now through Monday, Feb. 19, include:

For complete lists of retailers and brands participating in these promotions, visit Ebates’ website.

Using cash-back portals

Ebates is what’s known as a cash-back portal. That means that when you shop online by going through Ebates’ website, you earn cash rebates — aka “cash back.”

To earn cash back, simply visit Ebates’ website and select the retailer where you want to shop. From there, you will be redirected to the retailer’s website. Alternatively, you can use Ebates’ browser extension or mobile app.

Cash-back portals receive a commission from retailers for referring online shoppers to those retailers’ websites. Then, the portals share that commission with shoppers. So, your cash back is your share of that commission.

To get started with Ebates or any other cash-back portal, just sign up for an account. Signing up for and using Ebates is free.

Other cash-back portals that also are free include:

Even if you already have an Ebates account, you might want to check out other portals, as some portals are known to offer more cash back than others at a given retailer. I use both Ebates and TopCashback.
