Last week I signed up for an online accounting service for my blog.
I paid $5 for a monthly subscription to keep track of my expenses. Without even knowing it, I received a popup from my Ebates chrome extension telling me that I would be receiving $37.50 cash back for my $5 purchase.
I shop online all the time, and if you do too, Ebates makes sense to use.
You get cash back for purchases you were already going to make, so why not use the free service?
But wait! You're probably thinking, “What's the catch…?”. No catch.
Ebates is basically an affiliate for the 2000+ companies listed on their website. When you buy a product or service from any store on Ebates, Ebates get a commission from the store, at no cost to you. It's basically a win-win for all parties involved, you, Ebates, and the store you bought from.
Ebates is the largest cash back website with over 2,000 brands listed like: Amazon, Sephora, Forever21, Walmart, Target, Macy's, and so many more.
I personally use Ebates for my online shopping at stores like Amazon, Expedia, Walmart, Hertz, and Best Buy.
P.S. Ebates is 100% free. You pay n o t h i n g to use this awesome service.
You can see an example of me using Ebates below. I purchased a Quickbooks account my business to keep track of my expenses and profit.
The Quickbooks account is $5 per month and I ended up receiving $37.50 cashback for my purchase. (Pictured below you can see the amount I paid $5 and the cash back I received $37.50).
Ebates is simple and easy to use.
To earn cash back, all you have to do is log on to your Ebates account and find the store you want to shop at or you can install an Ebates chrome or safari extension. Any time you go on a website, the amount of cash back or rewards available will come up.
The Ebates Cash Back chrome extension helps you by automatically alerting you if cash back is available at the store you're shopping at, applying the best coupons at checkout, and notifying you if a product is available elsewhere at a lower price.
Plus, it's completely free! More info on the button here.
With over 2,000 stores listed, your favorite brand is bound to be on the website. Once you've found the brand you want to shop at, click the store's link and shop like you normally would.
You're getting money back for the shopping you would already be doing in the first place.
You even get a $10 welcome bonus after you join for free with my link here after you place your first purchase of $25 or more.
P.S. If you prefer shopping on your phone, there's even an app!
This free service is perfect as the holiday season is coming up. If you're going to do the shopping, you may as well get cash back for what you planned on buying anyway.
