I have been using Ebates for about a year now and have been pleasantly surprised. They are a website that if you shop through their link you receive a percentage of cash back on each purchase. Most major (and some non-major!) online stores are listed and you don’t have to do any extra work other than clicking the link on the Ebates page. It is super easy and every 3 months as long as your balance is more than $5, you receive a check or paypal payment! They feature 5,000 coupons and cash back offers from more than 1,200 stores!
In the year that I have been a member I have received $46.92 and have almost $30 pending right now! Since I was going to make the purchases anyway, it isn't bad adding that money back into my wallet. If you are a big online shopper, then imagine the possibilities!
Ebates also offers a $5 sign-up bonus for new members. I haven't had a negative experience with Ebates. As I've said, it is simple to do and great to get a little cash back nowadays!
Disclaimer - by clicking the Ebates link above, I do have the potential to receive a referral bonus of $5 per qualifying membership. Thank you! ;)
AND WHOO-HOO!!! This is my first post of 2010 <-- how do you refer to this? I say twenty-ten... but I keep hearing two thousand ten or O-ten. Wishing you a very HAPPY New Year.
