Have you ever heard of Ebates?
What is Ebates? Ebates is a FREE website which rewards you with CASH for clicking on their links to go to other shopping sites – you only get cash back if you make a purchase though! More details below.
How do you use Ebates?
Ebates is the pioneer and leader of online cash back shopping. Ebates pays members cash back every time they shop online as well as provide them with the best coupons and deals online. Founded in 1998, Ebates Inc.’s websites have paid over $325 million in cash to its members. That’s why millions of people have joined Ebates, and you should be excited to start earning cash back, too.
Ebates is super easy to use! First sign up for Ebates; and you will get a $10 Cash Sign-on Welcome Bonus.
Keep in mind that to qualify for a Welcome Bonus, you must be a new member and make minimum qualifying purchases totaling at least twenty-five dollars ($25) within ninety (90) days of becoming a Member.
You can always click on “My Ebates” “Cash Pending” as shown below to see what Ebates owes you.
You can see I don’t do much online shopping, but imagine your cash-back balance if you do.
How do you get paid with Ebates?
Simple, you can click on “My Ebates” and then on the right-hand side of the page click on “Cash Back Method” to select your preferred payment method – check or paypal. I choose paypal.
How do you use Ebates to get cash back on purchase?
When you are shopping online and see something you want to buy, say from Macys.com, you will head on over to Ebates and login. Then search for “Macy’s” and when it pulls up, click on “shop now.” It will re-direct you to the Macy’s web page, where you can find the item you want to purchase and buy it on Macy’s website.
Because you went to Macy’s through Ebates, you will earn a 2.5% off your purchase back. The percentage that is earned varies depending on the online store you are purchasing items from, and can range from 1%-25%. Most cash back rewards are credited to your Ebates account within 48 hours of the purchase.
When you make a purchase via the Ebates link, Ebates gets a commission from the store(s). Instead of keeping that money, Ebates shares it with you in the form of a quarterly cash back payment.
Every three months, Ebates sends you a cash back payment (or deposits money into your Paypal account) for purchases posted during the previous quarter based on their payment schedule. If you’ve earned less than $5.01 cash back, they’ll carry over your money to the next check.
