In honor of Black Friday, I thought I’d write a tribute post to my favorite online shopping Gem: Ebates. If you haven’t heard of it before, Ebates offers you cash back for doing your regular online shopping. All you do is log into Ebates, search the store where you want to shop, click into the store, and shop away!
Cash back is around 3-5% for most stores and they mail you a check once a quarter. The small purchases add up- I usually get around $10 a quarter but Sean recently got $50 back from our hotel stay in San Francisco!
The site also offers coupon codes and discounts at some stores. With 100’s of stores on their site, it is a great tool for anyone who shops online- no matter how big or small your purchases.
Before I signed up, I was a little weirded out- it seemed too good to be true! But it’s totally legitimate, you don’t give a credit card number or banking number. It’s super easy and totally awesome!
If you’re interested, click here to check it out. Taking this tiny extra step before making your online purchases can really save you some money this holiday season!
We weren’t paid or perked by Ebates to write this- I’m just totally obsessed with their site and how easy it is to get cash back for shopping online!
