Please please tell me that you use EBATES for all your online shopping! If you aren’t, you’re missing out on getting a few dollars back for every few dollars you spend. What the heck!? I know, I know. It’s genius. I’m a genius.
Are you curious about how it works? 1) Sign up at EBATES (yes, it’s free) 2) Shop at your favourite stores 3) Earn cash back on your purchases
Right now I have $77.46 sitting in my account. They only pay out a few times a year, but on August 16th they will transfer at least $77.46 to my PayPal account. I’m sure it will be more than that by then, so that’s the minimum it will be. Don’t fret if you don’t have PayPal, they still do snail mail cheques too. And who the heck does’t like getting a cheque for shopping. This is a beautiful world, friends.
Different stores have a different percentage of cash back. These are some of my 2x cash back offers at the time of writing this post. These offers change but you can easily access them just by logging into your EBATES account.
Take Amazon for example. I shop on there ALL.THE.TIME. Basically if Amazon doesn’t have it, it doesn’t exist. So let’s say I spend $100 on Amazon tonight, EBATES will give me back $5. Five bucks back for something I was going to buy anyways.
As if that’s not freaking amazing enough and I know you have butterflies in your stomach from just hearing this information (ok, maybe it’s just indigestion, but we’ll say it’s from my exciting post), I just discovered they have a gift card shop. It looks as though EBATES must have partnered up with Card Swap at some point, except now you get cash back for buying a gift card!
Say you needed some back to school clothes for the kids (it’s going to happen!), but yourself a $100 gift card. You’ll make 3% back on the card and then when you spend the card and actually order something, you’ll get another 2% back. Often Old Navy has 4-5% back depending on their offers. *insert happy dance*
