Earn Cash Back on Purchases with Ebates
Over the past week, I’ve had quite a few emails/comments from readers asking about Ebates, which is an online program that allows you to earn cash back for online purchases through a variety of retailers, and the entire program is free. You’ll also find various coupons/discounts active for the retailer. The percentage of cash back varies from store to store and sometimes increases during certain periods for a retailer. As you can see, the list of stores Ebates offers cash back on is quite robust!
For instance, retailers like Beauty.com and Sephora currently offer 12% cash back, which means when you click through Ebates and purchase, you’ll receive 12% cash back for that purchase. Every three months, Ebates will send you a payment (assuming you have earned $5.01+) via check or PayPal. It’s saving money every time you shop through one of Ebates’ merchants, because you’ll get paid in cash (not credits, gift cards, etc.)–and if you do a lot of shopping, the cash back can add up!
