I ask people time and time again – “when you shop online, are you utilizing a cash back site?” Some people I speak with do; others say no. I ask why not? Some say it seems like too much work – others say, “I don’t know” and others that say, “it’s confusing.” And all I have to say is – I need to teach you! It’s not a hard concept at all. In fact, it’s so simple that you’ll wish you had joined years ago.
So now I am asking you – do you utilize cash back shopping sites? If not – what is stopping you from using ebates or any of the several other cash back sites? Seriously – it’s just one extra step of your online shopping purchase and it will save you money. Money that you get back when you reach payout for which doesn’t take that long to do.
Let’s focus on the cash back site ebates.com. As you can see below – since becoming a member I’ve received $618.13 in cash back from shopping through ebates.
So what are the steps in using a site like ebates?
- First you need to sign up on the site
- Next, search for the store you’re looking to shop at (using the ‘search’ feature is wonderful!)
- Click on the link to that store – you’ll see a popup saying that you’re going to be earning cash back for your purchase – seeing that popup means that your click has been tracked
- Complete your shopping and check out
- There’s nothing more for you to do. Under your “account” on the ebates site – look for the heading “Shopping Trips”. Click on that and you will see what stores have been tracked that you’ve “clicked thru”. If you’ve got an issue – email ebates.
Refer Friends and Earn Money
Right now (as of this posting 9/24/18)if you refer friends and they make a minimum purchase of $25 – you’ll receive $25 in your ebates account and your friend will earn $10. This offer isn’t always available. Most of the time you’ll receive a $10 referral per friend.
