I try to be the first one to introduce my friends and coworkers to new ways to save time and money, so when a friend of mine told me about Ebates she was completely shocked that I had never heard of it before! Ebates, “where it pays to shop online,” is an online hub of over 1,600 different stores – all of whom earn you cash back when you order from them! You can now also do an ebates referral to help you out a bit. Being able to earn cash back, how great is that?
Ebates is great because it gives you actual cash back for your purchases – there’s nothing to redeem and there are no fees or forms involved! Just by ordering things I already needed from Sephora, Shari’s Berries, and Soap.com I’ve already earned over $20 back! Sometimes, saving a little extra is the best gift you can give yourself, and that’s why Ebates is this week’s Fab Find For Good!
A few things to remember when you sign up:
- You have to go to Ebates first, before making the purchase at your favorite online store. It’s tough to remember at first, but you get used to it.
- They send you a check at the end of every payment period. (3-4 months) That’s like getting paid 4 times a year to shop – don’t tell me you haven’t had that dream!
- Use Ebates to “move” more of your shopping online. If you don’t have to buy it in a real store, why not make money off of the purchase?
- Businesses pay Ebates a commission for sending business to them, and that commission is what they use to pay you.
