At tonight’s Super-Couponing 2 workshop in Fox Lake, I’ll discuss Ebates as a way to get cash back while shopping online. If you’ve never used Ebates, it’s easy – and indeed, it does pay you back for shopping! If you’re not familiar with how to use Ebates, here’s a quick overview.
First, if you don’t have an Ebates account, create one online. It’s free! This is a great time to sign up too, because you’ll also get a FREE $10 gift card to the store of your choice once you make your first purchase of $25 or more online through Ebates.
Pretty much every major department store online participates in Ebates – Kohls, JC Penney, Macy’s, Target and more. I’ve gotten into the habit of logging into Ebates before I look to buy anything online, because so many stores participate in Ebates.
So, come along with me and I’ll show you how it works!
Recently I wanted to buy something from Radio Shack. First, I logged in to Ebates:
That’s it! Ebates cash-back bonuses are issued quarterly via a check mailed to your home, or you can choose to receive the cash via Paypal. With all of the online shopping we’re likely to do this season, this is a great way to save yourself even more money. It’s fun when those bonus Ebates checks show up in the mail too! Happy Shopping!
