Snack Time: Ebates – Money for Shopping Online

Another website I use frequently for shopping is Ebates.

Ebates is an online shopping site that gives you cash back for your online purchases. You simply go to Ebates each time you want to shop at a store, click on the store link through Ebates and shop just as you normally would. The “cookies” on your computer recognizes you have gone through the Ebates link to shop and you will see the cash back deposited into your Ebates account within days.

Ebates is a lot like Upromise (click on the link to hear more about this program too). The cash back with Ebates goes into your pocket though. They process checks on a quarterly basis so your cash back accumulates in your account until the “Big Fat Check” is processed and you can get your money! You must have a minimum balance of $5.01 to receive a check (this has to come from your purchases and not referrals). You can also choose to have your money deposited via paypal (this is the option I always do – quicker and easier).

I do quite a bit of online shopping so this is a good site for me. I have earned so much with Ebates since I’ve started them that it is a great benefit to have! Money for shopping on stuff I needed…SWEET!

Ebates also has a referral program. For each person who signs up under your referral link (or email address), you will receive a $5 bonus when they make a purchase using an Ebates link.

You can click here to sign up for Ebates. They offer a $5 Sign-Up Bonus for all new members too!
