You have probably seen the commercials for a site called Ebates. If you go to your favorite store through the site and make a purchase, you can get cash back. I just got cash back on my Ulta online purchase the other day. I already have an account with Ebates so I went to www.ebates.com, logged in, and in the search box I typed Ulta. When I found the store, it showed that I would get 3% cash back with my purchase. Now, not all stores have the same cash back percentage. For instance, this week Groupon is doing 6% cash back. If you look at the image below, you will see that each store has a different percent of cash back, but if you are already going to shop online, why not get a little bit back? Once you make your purchase, it can take up to 24 hours for it to reflect in your account but then you can see your cash back balance. Once you reach over $5, you can choose for them to send you a check in the mail or pay you via PayPal.
I have only tried Ebates twice, but so far I have been extremely happy with it. I am leaning towards shopping online more and more now that I am pregnant and too tired to go shopping. It’s easier for me to buy online and just do the free return if I don’t like the item. If you click on my referral link here, you will get $10 after your first purchase with my referral.
