What is Ebates? Basically free money. There is a good chance you’ve heard of Ebates, perhaps from a commercial but are you using it? If you aren’t using a cashback program, you’re losing potentially hundreds of dollars, depending on the quantity of online shopping you do.
How does it work? It’s simple. You log into your Ebates account before making a purchase somewhere. Search for your retailer. Click the link to your retailer from Ebates and continue as you would shop before. It’s that simple. Ebates will record your purchase and attribute the percent cashback to your account. The % cashback varies by retailer and fluctuates over time as well.
I wanted to give them a special mention today because they’re having a Valentine’s Day special! Over 175 stores are now 14% cashback!! That’s really high for cashback (usually ranges from 2-8%). This means essentially you are getting 14% off on all of your purchases.
