I am a member of a web site called ebates and it is totally been awesome! I have been a member for a little over a year now and have earned $146.35 in cash back since joining. The hard part is I always get self concious when trying to convince folks to sign up, because there is a referral bonus so I have a feeling a lot of people push it to try to make money that way. But I have only referred a handful of people. But my experience with ebates has been such a positive one, that I decided to at least share it once on my blog to give others the opportunity to at least check it out.
If you shop on-line, then ebates will work for you. You just link to stores via ebates, the stores are willing participants, then ebates tracks your purchase at the store and you get a designated cash back amount. Also, it has tons of store coupons and deals available. I shop kohls on line all the time so I get cash back from that purchase. I have also gotten cash back from stores like target, officemax, J Crew, Old Navy, etc.
I really can't say anything bad about the site. It is so easy, I haven't gotten any spam, just the requested emails, and getting cash sent directly to my paypal account every three months just for shopping online is awesome. And, like I said before, you just shop as usual at the store, except you click through ebates, no forms to fill out, not records to keep.
And, once you sign up, you can refer friends and earn cash back that way too. If you have a lot of friends to tell, it is a great way to make some extra spending money.
Thanks for checking it out.
I hope everybody who shops on line checks it out because the cash back is there waiting to be taken.
