We have something to share with you...

    We're in love with Ebates.

We first learned about Ebates a few years ago. At the time, it was a fun way for us to earn a few dollars in cash rebates while we shopped online.

But that changed last year, when we realized there were ways to ​SUBSTANTIALLY INCREASE OUR EARNINGS.

Here are some of Ebates 2000+ stores...

There are 2000+ stores offering cash back on everything you buy!!

Here are some stores that were recently offering cash back (We think you should recognize a few).

How​​​​ does Ebates work?

Ebates is our favorite online cash back and coupon website.

​It's easy to use. It only takes a few minutes to sign up. You can be earning money on items you normally buy online in no time at all.

Here's how it works...

Sign up for Ebates. Simply type in the store you wish to make a purchase from to check if they are a Ebates merchant. Click on the store link and you will be automatically sent to the store website. There is nothing else to do. Ebates creates a record of your purchase and sends you a rebate four times a year.

Example - Let's say you want to buy a dress and shoes for a wedding you're attending next month. You ran a search online and you found something attractive and reasonably priced at Macy's. The total charge is $118.00. You checked the Ebates website and noticed that Macy's is participating in Ebates Triple Cash Back week. This means that the normal 3% cash rebate is tripled to 9%. You definitely don't want to miss this special offer, so you click on the Macy's link and make a purchase. Ebates makes a note of the transaction and sends you a check for $10.62 in their next payout cycle.

Here's How to "SUPERSIZE" Your Ebates Earnings

Get the Cash Back Button (new incentive)

Never miss cash back again!

In the past, we missed getting cash back because we didn't remember to check if the website we were making a purchase from was an Ebates merchant (remember that you have to click the  Ebates link to get credited). There was a several hundred dollar order from Advance Auto Parts that we missed. And the sign up incentive from Fios. That hurt!

Well, that won't happen again.

The new Ebates Cash Back Button is an automated tool that proactively finds discounts and lets you earn Cash Back—without visiting Ebates first.

You definitely want to take advantage of this!

Simply download the Google Chrome Ebates App. The Ebates Activation Button automatically appears in the upper right corner of your screen whenever you are on the website of an Ebates merchant. Just click to activate and shop as normal.

This new feature alone has BOOSTED our Ebates earnings substantially. We won't ever miss an opportunity to get cash back anymore!

We HIGHLY RECOMMEND that you use it yourself. You will be happy you did .

The Ebates Visa Card will MAXIMIZE the amount of cash back you can earn.

Stack your Cash Back

Are you aware that there are 10,000+ coupons on the Ebates website?

That's amazing!​

We're excited to teach you how to combine all those coupon codes with Cash Back so you could MAXIMIZE your earnings.

First, let us tell you that the "MAGIC" is combining as many discounts as possible. We're talking about stacking a store sale, coupon code, cash back discount, and even the Ebates Credit Card Visa discount.

Here's how it's done...

​Let's say you are planning a vacation to Florida. Your luggage has seen better days. You don't think it will survive another flight. 

You check the Ebates website and discover that JC Penney is participating in Double Cash Back week. Their regular 3% Cash Back discount is doubled to 6%.

You click the link and see that JC Penney has a special coupon code for Ebates customers - a 50% off for 48 hours sale!

You browse the JC Penney website and choose an attractive 3 piece American Tourister set with exceptional reviews for $400. It can be yours for $200 with the Ebates code.

Time to check out. You will receive the 6% Cash Back ($12) from Ebates in their next payment cycle.

                 $400     Original price of Luggage
              -  $200     Sale price with 50% Off Ebates Code
              - $ 12       Ebates Double Cash Back Discount
               $188      Final Price   $212 Savings

You can earn a further 3% discount​ by using the Ebates Visa Card. That will earn you another $5.64.

Tell everyone you know

You're going to LOVE Ebates. You will definitely want to tell your friends.

Here's a quick way to boost your earnings.

Here's a recent incentive plan...

They join and spend at least $25

You get $25, and they get $10

How does Ebates make money?

Every time you make a purchase, you get cash back and Ebates earns a thank you referral from the retailer for sending them a customer.

How it works - Petco sends a 8% commission to Ebates any time a customer makes a purchase. Ebates gives you 4% cash back for shopping at Petco and they keep 4% as a thank you referral fee.

This is a cost effective way for a retailer to earn a customer. The retailer is only charged when you make a purchase. That's why Ebates is such a great deal for you. The retailer is actually giving cash back to you rather than paying for expensive newspaper, televison, and radio advertising coverage.

Is Ebates available worldwide?

Ebates has separate websites in Canada, Korea, and Japan.

When will I receive my first check?

Ebates sends out their famous "Big Fat Check" four times a year.

Here's what we wish were different...

​  We wish there was an option to get our cash back payment whenever we wished instead of waiting for the next payment cycle. We assume that its easier for them to send out checks all at once.

  Your entire purchase at Amazon will not qualify for Cash Back. It is limited to certain categories. It's still very extensive though. At the time we wrote this post... shoes, handbags, bedding, home decor, vacuums, cookware, bakeware, small appliances, kitchen tools, and Echo and Kindle devices were included.

In conclusion...

We know you will be very happy with Ebates.

We use it numerous times each month and earn Cash Back on everything from vitamins to tires. Ebates has saved us HUNDREDS OF DOLLARS on items that we were planning on buying anyway.

Please let us know if you have any questions. Always happy to hear from you.​

Get CASH BACK on Every Purchase!
