Ebates Review: Cash Back Rewards
Are you one of those people you look for a great deal before making a purchase? Or search for coupons so you can get a great price? Then Ebates is for you! Ebates is a cash back rewards program to pays you for shopping—it’s that simple! They offer 1%, 5%, and even up to 20% cash back rewards on eligible purchases. They also have a rotating carousel of stores that qualify for Double Cash Back Rewards! I believe Ebates has one of the best cash back rewards programs out there. Imagine getting a cash back bonus with every purchase you made… Yeah, it’s pretty awesome!
How It Works
Ebates has partnered with 100s of stores to offer cash back rewards, so when you shop at your favorites stores you receive a cash back bonus. The stores pay Ebates a commission for sending customers to shop at their website, and Ebates share that commission with its members! Pretty generous of them, right? There is no risk to join; no signup or membership fees—it’s free! As a matter of fact, there are times they offer a $10 bonus just to join. Once a member, all you have to do it activate the Ebates cash back button each time you shop online, on the go, or in store and start earning cash back rewards! Each shopping trip is recorded and once the purchase is complete, your rewards will be updated within a few days. Payouts, or Big Fat Checks are made quarterly (every 3 months) through PayPal or check; sometimes you have the option to receive the rewards on a gift card. I would definitely recommend installing the Ebates browser extension; it will automatically pop up and offer to active cash back rewards any time you land on a participating vendor’s site. So you never miss an opportunity to earn!
Get to Shopping!
You can shop at your favorite at some of favorite stores like Nike, Kohl’s, Ebay and Zulily. I was really surprised at how many different stores are connected with Ebates, and it made me want to do more online shopping! Wait… Not more, as in just more shopping. But more like looking for items I would normally purchase in store-online. For example, I would normally shop at Walmart anyway, but using Ebates to shop online gives me those cash back rewards; and my order is delivered to my door. *Now, you can get cash back both online and in-store—so you save either way!* And don’t think it’s just for clothes or shoes, the categories cover from traveling to services. Some of my favorite participating stores are Amazon, Old Navy, and Expedia (YES! Expedia!) When I upgraded my cell phone last year, I received a very generous cash back reward—which helped fund my Christmas shopping! OH, speaking of Christmas; the savings and cash back rewards are absolutely phenomenal during this season. No Black Friday throw downs, dealing with out of stock items, and the overwhelming stress Christmas shopping can cause. For the last few years, I have purchased all my gifts shopping online through Ebates—I get good prices and get cash back! It’s a win-win situation!
Coupons and Other Services
In addition to the cash back rewards program, Ebates also has a slew of coupons available! This is savings on top of savings because you still receive your cash back rewards on purchases, as well as the coupons with all your favorite stores! But there’s more! Ebates has recently introduced the Ebates Cash Back Visa credit card, where you can earn 3% cash back rewards when shopping online with Ebates and 1% cash back everywhere Visa is accepted!

Don’t Shop Without It!
Ebates is a must-have for those who love to shop and save money. Since I live in a rural area, I am a huge fan of online shopping. It is so much easier, and sometimes cheaper to shop online than to drive an hour or two to the nearest retailer. Ebates is an amazing cash back rewards program that allows you to save (and earn) cash while shopping! And let’s be honest, who doesn’t like to save?
