TOTD: Earn Cash for Shopping Online!

Purse with Money

I’ve recently come across a way to cushion your pocket-book that doesn’t involve cutting expenses! How does this work, you ask? It’s simple: Ebates is like that loyalty rewards card you have from CVS, Best Buy, and/or Victoria’s Secret PLUS coupon codes like you would get from RetailMeNot, all rolled into one! You get coupons AND earn cash back on every purchase made from this site, no matter what store it came from. Cash back varies, depending on the store. Some stores offer a flat rate cash back (i.e., $5), while others give a percentage of your purchase (i.e., 1%-30% of total). Very few places have coupons only and even fewer have no discount at all. Signing up is easy, just go to Ebates and follow the prompts! Fast, easy, and free…Just how we like it 😉 If the cash back isn’t enough for you, they’ll even throw in a free gift card of your choice after your first $25 purchase.

To start shopping: sign in to Ebates and select your store. My current favorites are Coach (1.5% cash back), DSW (4% cash back), and anything cosmetics (Sephora 8% cash back, $2.75 cash back, or ULTA 4% cash back)! Once you find the store you want, click on the name to see its coupon page! Or you can skip this using the shop now icon, but why not find a coupon and save even more? Found the coupon you want to use? Great! Now click the shop now icon to be taken to the store’s website; your coupon and cash back are automatically activated! 😀 Every three months or so, Ebates will send you a check from your accumulated cash back. It’s that easy!

Most of us already do at least SOME online shopping, so why not take that extra step to save money on the things we’re already going to purchase? I can’t wait to do my Christmas shopping this year! Links to Ebates and Glossybox are in the sidebar. 😉  I’d love to hear your thoughts about this, or better yet, your experiences if you’ve already used it!
