Ebates: How Does It Work?
I think Ebates might just be my favorite site. After all, their slogan is “Where It Pays to Shop Online.” What’s not to like! I’ve been a member since June 2008, and I absolutely love it! I’ve received over $3,000 in quarterly cash back payments, just for buying things I would normally buy. Who doesn’t like money?
My friend Blakely told me about Ebates that June. I was skeptical. I thought it was a scam. I thought it would spam me. She assured me that it wouldn’t. I signed up that month, and I started shopping. I just bought things that I would normally buy, like wedding presents, birthday presents, Christmas presents, clothes; little things here and there. Each quarter, checks were coming in!
How Ebates works is simple; they are a web portal. You go to here, sign up, then search for the store where you want to order something. Let’s choose Nordstrom for 2% cash back. I click on the Nordstrom link, and a new window pops up telling me that they are taking me to the Nordstrom website.
The website I want pops up, and I start shopping! Everything is just like normal. It’s the normal Nordstrom website, everything is in the regular place, I can even pay with my regular credit cards. As long as I complete my transaction while on that website, I earn my cash back. At the end of each quarter, Ebates calculates how much cash back you’ve earned in that period, and they write you a check for that amount. Checks are mailed on the 15th of February, May, August, and November for the previous quarter’s cash back amount. That’s it! Super easy right?
