How to Use Ebates + NEW In-Store Cash Back
This post contains referral links. Please see disclosure.
I know many of you already use Ebates. For those who don’t, I thought I would give a quick update on how to use Ebates and info on their new in-store cash back program.
I love passing savings on to my readers and what’s better than getting cash back?
I have used Ebates for awhile now and have received several checks just by making regular, online purchase that I would make anyway.
What is Ebates?
Ebates is an online portal that includes 1700+ plus stores that allow you do get cash back ranging from 2% to 25% when you make a purchase through their site.
How do I join?
Sign up is free and only requires an email address.
How to use Ebates
- After you have signed up and before you make a purchase go to www.ebates.com (you can also install the ebates toolbar which alerts you to cash back savings when you’re online, which is what I use) I can’t tell you how many times I missed out on getting cash back before I installed the toolbar!
- Browse online stores from their partner list including Children’s Place, Ann Taylor, Kohls, Sephora and more. Each store will list its cash back percentage. The average cash back is usually between 4%-12% Follow the link to the store you want to shop at and your cash back will accrue after you make a purchase.
- It normally takes between 1-5 days for the cash back to show in your account so don’t be upset if you don’t see it right away.
*They have also recently just added in store cash back from 20 top stores. I have not used this yet, but I think it’s a great idea and I’m sure they will have several more stores join.
From what I understand you need to link your credit or debit card on the Ebates site and pay with your linked card at participating retailers.
*Remember you must make the purchase by going through www.ebates.com or by using the Ebates toolbar button.
How do I get cash back?
Four times a year Ebates will either mail or deposit the money you have accrued into your PayPal account which you specify when you sign up. You also get $10 just for signing up and $10 for every friend referred.
For each friend, you refer you will be entered into the August Cash 4 Class Sweepstakes and a chance to win $1000 until 9/30/16
Now is a great time to join, and it especially comes in handy for online holiday purchases, which will be here before we know it! Visit Ebates to get started!
