If you routinely shop online and you love online rewards, then you should check out Ebates.com. Ebates.com is an online rewards program that gives you cash back (online shopping rewards) when you purchase things usingh their link online.
How Does It Work?
After you create an account on the Ebates.com website, you are ready to go! Visit the website whenever you are shopping on your favorite websites. Some websites that I frequently shop at using Ebates.com are Ebay and Overstock.com. All you have to do is visit the site, find your store and start shopping. The Ebates.com website will tell you how much you can earn for each store. For example, Overstock.com might offer 2% cash back on anything that you purchase using the Ebates.com link. Many stores also offer a flat reward back amount. For example, Verizon might offer $50 cash back when you upgrade using the Ebates.com link.
Ebates.com also offers coupon codes for many sites. By shopping through Ebates.com, you may get an extra bonus like 10% off or free shopping code.
How Do You Get Paid?
You have 3 different payout options. You can chose a traditional check, deposit into a bank account or you can choose to donate your cash back to a local charity, organization or a family member. (There are no additional charges that are charged to you regardless of which option you select).
Ebates.com is very easy to use and very self-explanatory. In addition to earning cash back on your purchases, you also earn $5 for each person that you refer. Lastly, they have a huge database that includes most popular online shopping sites.
Ebates.com only pays out quarterly which means they only send out payments every 3 months. Also, you have to meet a minimum threshold of $5.01. If you have less than $5.01, your earnings will roll over to the next quarter’s payout.
All in all, I think that Ebates.com is a great idea. It’s totally free to join, there are no annoying software downloads required and times are hard. Who doesn’t like the idea of having a chance to get back some of your hard earned money?
