During the holiday season, we’re making sure to highlight some amazing cash back opportunities in our holiday cash back series. This way, every time you shop and use these sites, you’ll benefit from big savings.
Black Friday and Cyber Monday are approaching quickly, so you’ll probably do a lot of online shopping over the next few days. To help we’re highlighting one of our favorite programs that has been around for years and is always adding new stores, Ebates.
You’ll get a $10 gift card bonus for Macy’s, Kohl’s, Walmart or Target.
What is Ebates?
Ebates is a site that allows you to click through to popular online retailers and earn cash back in the process. For example, if you want to buy a sweater at J. Crew, you can go to J. Crew’s site and just buy it.
But, even better, you can go to Ebates.com, click through to J. Crew’s site from there and receive 3% of your purchase back into your Ebates account. Then, once each quarter Ebates will send you a check or deposit your cash back into your PayPal account, as long as your account balance is over $5.
What are some of the stores I can shop at?
There are over 1,600 stores you can shop at through Ebates and they run the gamut. For example, you can use it to buy clothes from Banana Republic, flowers from FTD, books from Barnes and Noble or jewelry at Blue Nile!
How can I earn even more cash back?
Referrals. You can earn even more cash back by referring your friends to Ebates. You typically get $5 for each friend you refer but they often run specials with even higher referral bonus values.
Bonus Cash Back. Especially during the holidays, for example, on Black Friday, Ebates tends to run specials for double cash back or more which means you can really benefit from timing a big purchase you were going to make anyway. For example, Walgreens usually offers 4% cash back but can go as high as 8%.
