I can’t believe it, but I don’t think I’ve posted about Ebates before. And I really should, because I’ve earned back over $200 shopping via Ebates…and so can you.
In case you’re not familiar with Ebates, it’s basically a site that pays you to shop at your favorite stores. You will earn extra savings (anywhere from 2 percent to 12 percent) each time you purchase at one of your favorite sites via the Ebates home page link. And, I can attest, most of the sites you purchase from are on Ebates (there are over 1200 total)–the ones I shop the most from via Ebates are Amazon (selected departments), Lands End, Children’s Place, Drugstore.com, Target, and Kohls. Oooh, and I see they’ve just added C. Wonder and Living Social. Nice! Really, you can use Ebates to shop at most of your favorite stores–everything from clothing to housewares to electronics to appliances.
Let’s say you want to take advantage of the current 30% Friends & Family offer at Lands End, and you want to earn an extra 6% from your purchase too. Create an Ebates Account and then choose Lands End from the drop-down menu…click on the Lands End link and Ebates will take you to the Lands End homepage, and then automatically track your purchase for you so that you’ll earn dollars back on that purchase. Each time you reach a certain amount of money earned back (it may be as little as $10), Ebates mails you a check. And you do a little happy dance.
It’s that easy (trust me, I was skeptical before I used it, and now I’m converted).
