I’ve recently found a cool website called Ebates – if you love to shop online… this site will save you money! How does it work? Ebates has a slew of online merchants that they work with. These merchants offer cash back on a percentage of your purchase. So instead of going to the online merchant directly, go to Ebates first, click on the merchant from there, and then shop! You’ll then receive a certain percentage of your total purchase back in to your Ebates account. Then every three months, Ebates will send you either a check via mail, or send money to your paypal account.
What is also cool, is when you sign up, they automatically give you a $5 bonus. And right now, you’ll receive an extra $10 bonus if you make a purchase between now and the end of the year. So if you’re going to buy something, you may as well do it through Ebates!
Are you still concerned or have questions? I pulled this from their “about Ebates” page:
Ebates is the pioneer and leader of online Cash Back Shopping. The company was founded in 1998 by two Deputy District Attorneys in Silicon Valley who used to prosecute online fraud & identity theft before starting Ebates (so you can be sure we are very into secure online transactions!). So go ahead, sign up and start shopping now. Joining Ebates is always free – you’ll never pay us anything. And four times a year or more, we’ll mail you a Big Fat Check, or transfer the money to your PayPal account if you’d prefer. We can even send the money to your favorite charity. All 100% free.
People often ask: “This sounds too good to be true, how are you able to do it?” It really is quite simple. Just like almost every other online shopping center, we get a commission from the stores when you make a purchase. Instead of keeping that money – like almost all other sites do – we share it with you!
So, as long as 900+ of the world’s top online stores are happy to pay a bonus to attract the new, valuable customers we send their way, Ebates is going to continue to send Big Fat Checks to our satisfied customers across the globe.
