This is my actual payout screenshot from Ebates! Since I joined in 2014, I have made over $500 doing nothing. Read on to find out how I am doing it.
Have you used Ebates before? If you haven’t then you really MUST! It is the absolute easiest way I have used to make money while I shop online. Nothing to download. Just sign up for a free ebates.com account and watch your balance grow over the months while you shop! And right now when you sign up through my referral link, you’ll automatically get $10 deposited into your account!
Every time you are planning on going online to shop, check Ebates first and type in the name of the store. More likely than not, it’s listed there. Click on the link and start shopping as usual! You will receive a percentage of what you spend back into your ebates account. Every 3 months, you’ll either get a paper check (if that’s how you choose to receive your payout) or you’ll see a transfer go into your paypal account. That’s CASH! Sometimes, they’ll even offer you more than what you have earned in the last quarter if you opt to take a gift card. I opted for an Ulta Beauty gift card last time and got 10% more than what I was going to get paid out that quarter.
I have used it for several years and I have made hundreds of dollars. Granted, I have bought furniture online so these big purchases add up to a hefty ebates check. Some quarters I make about $10 or even less. Some quarters I make $60! Once, after making large furniture purchases I earned over a hundred dollars in one quarter. I’ll go through ebates to shop at Target and even though Target’s ebates percentage is usually only 1% right now, I shop at Target A LOT and every dollar I get back counts!
Currently as of this posting, Coach.com will earn you 10% cash back. The Container Store will earn you 8% cash back. Gymboree will earn you 2% but given how much I spend there, in conjunction with ALL the other stores I shop at, it is ALWAYS worth it for me to click through ebates.com first before I do ANY online shopping no matter what the ebates % is currently. It can fluctuate but something is always better than nothing!
Here’s what they say on their site about how to earn Cash Back:
At Ebates, we don’t ask you to fill out forms or earn points. In fact, earning Cash Back with us is as easy as 1-2-3:
Shop: First, start an Ebates Shopping Trip. To do this, simply be sure to click on any Ebates link to the store you’ll shop with before you make a purchase.
Validate: When you click an Ebates link, you’ll see a pop-up confirmation letting you know you’re ready to shop and earn Cash Back at that store.
Purchase: Complete your purchase as you normally would. This will also complete your Shopping Trip.
That’s all you have to do.
Once the store lets us know that you’ve made a purchase, we add your Cash Back to your account and send you an email confirmation. It usually takes a little time for the store to let us know that your purchase was completed. Depending on the store, this can take from a few hours to several days. Then, every three months, we send you the Cash Back you’ve earned, in a Big Fat Check or via PayPal.
