Shopping online this holiday season? Do yourself a favor and shop through Ebates. Ebates is a cash back program, just log-in or sign up, type in the name of the store you want to shop at (1,200 participating stores), and click Shop Now.
After clicking Shop Now, you will be redirected to the store you want with a tracking number (you do NOT need to write this down, it will be store by Ebates). If you purchase anything at that store, within a week or so you'll receive a certain percentage of cash back added to your account.
Didn't get your payment, but received your order? Go to Customer Care at the bottom of the page and click Where's My Cash, copy and paste your order with the appropriate info, and you'll receive your cash back within a day or two. Please note, if you choose in-store pickup you will not get cash back.
Every quarter, if you've made $5 in cash back, Ebates will send you a Big Fat Payment. Since I joined in 2010, I've earned almost $600 in cash back!
New Ebates members will receive a special sign up bonus, once they've spent at least $25 at any store (combined I believe).
