Ebates – free $$ for shopping online!

August 27, 2010

I don’t do a ton of online shopping throughout the year, but I definitely do my share at Christmas time.  Last year, before the holidays I signed up for ebates and am super glad I did.  Shortly after Thanksgiving, I received a check for $71.45 just for shopping online through ebates.  I’ve since received a few smaller checks, as well.

How does it work?
Ebates offers a % back from stores for shopping online through their website.  Once you’re signed up, you just go to, select the store you’re planning on shopping from the box in the top left-hand corner, click the link and shop as you usually would.  Check back to your ebates account later on (the next day-ish) and it will show how much you’re getting back.  Each store offers a certain percent – For example, Gap offers 2%, iTunes 3%, The Disney Store is 6%, Macy’s 6% and FTD is 10%.  (Some days – like Cyber Monday – they will offer higher percentages.)

If you’re shopping online anyway, it’s just silly not to use ebates.  It does not cost you anything and there is also a $5 sign-up bonus.  Are you going to get rich on it?  Nope, but it’s a little extra back (or extra off, depending on how you look at it!) if you’re already planning on buying something online.
