I might have heard about ebates.com before, but I assumed it was a scam. It’s too good to be true. Well, a few weeks ago I heard about it again.
Here in Del Rio, there is very little in the way of shopping. Most purchases have to be made online, or we have to drive about 2 1/2 hours to the city. When a friend told me about ebates, I decided to give it a try. It is indeed legit. My friend has earned $80 in cash back and I know of others from here in Del Rio that have also earned cash back. The stores are willing to partner with ebates because they get so much more business from them.
Here’s how it works. You sign up for ebates (it’s free), and any time you do online shopping, just visit ebates.com first. Enter the web site you want to shop at, then click the store link directly from ebates. There is also a handy button you can get on your toolbar that will let you know when you are on a web site that could earn cash back. With your first qualifying $25 purchase, you receive a $10 gift card.
So far I have earned cash back from Kohls, Target, Alibris, Walmart, and Amazon. The good news about shopping from Target and Amazon is that I also get free shipping (due to the Target Red Card, and Amazon Prime). Make sure you check ebates.com before shopping, as some departments within a store do not qualify for cash back.
It really is a good deal. I am super excited to be earning cash back on purchases and helping our family save money!
