I love Ebates! At Ebates, they don’t ask you to fill out forms or earn points. In fact, earning Cash Back with Ebates is as easy as 1-2-3:
Shop: First, start an Ebates Shopping Trip. To do this, simply be sure to click on any Ebates link to the store you’ll shop with before you make a purchase.
Validate: When you click an Ebates link, you’ll see a pop-up confirmation letting you know you’re ready to shop and earn Cash Back at that store.
Purchase: Complete your purchase as you normally would. This will also complete your Shopping Trip.
That’s all you have to do.
Once the store lets them know that you’ve made a purchase, they will add your Cash Back to your account and send you an email confirmation. It usually takes a little time for the store to let them know that your purchase was completed. Depending on the store, this can take from a few hours to several days. Then, every three months, they send you the Cash Back you’ve earned, in a Big Fat Check or via PayPal.
Retroactively earning Cash Back
Did you place an order, but forgot to go through Ebates first? Unfortunately, you can only earn Cash Back by starting a Shopping Trip with Ebates first. They have no way to add Cash Back after a purchase has already been made.
If you are finding it difficult to remember to go to Ebates.com before you purchase, try their Cash Back Button. I use it. It pops up automatically on any site where Ebates Cash Back is available, and it even finds coupons for you.
Click on the banner below to gwt started. I enjoy getting a check every 3 months. If you shop online a lot, that can really add up, providing the merchant is participating with Ebates. Try it…
