Alternatives to Bing Cashback : Ebates cash back

Microsoft's Windows Live announced that it will cancel its popular Bing Cashback program on July 30, 2010. Online shoppers are now wondering how to find an alternative to Bing Cashback.

There are a few similar cash back programs that work basically the same as Bing Cashback did. One such program is Ebates.

In addition to offering cash back on your online shopping purchases, it also gives you coupon codes and discounts in addition to the cash back savings you receive when you shop online.

Ebates works like this:

  1. Go to their website
  2. Link to the online retailer you want to make a purchase from
  3. Your account will be credited with the cash rebate. After 30-60 days your cashback is eligible to be redeemed.
  4. Collect your cash back rebate in the form of a check or Paypal.

Ebates is FREE to join and they will even offers you a $5 sign up cashback bonus. That means THEY GIVE YOU $5 just for signing up.

So sign up today and start earning CASH BACK on all your online shopping purchases.

Mr Rebates Cash Back

Another great cash back shopping website is Mr Rebates Cash Back.

In my own personal shopping experience, I've found that Mr Rebates usually pays me a higher percentage of cash back than Ebates for the stores I shop at. So I usually compare the cash back rebates and coupon codes offered from both Mr Rebates and Ebates and then use whichever cash back shopping program pays me the best rebate (which is usually Mr Rebates). Mr Rebates is free to join.

Mr Rebates has almost double the number of online retailers, making them a better directory of coupon codes. They offer more than 2000 online stores with cash back rebates. Some of my favorite stores include:

eBay, Babies R Us, newegg, Macys, Groupon, The Body Shop, and Diapers.com

Mr Rebates holds your cash back until you have at least $10.00 in available cash back. Then you must request your cash back to be paid to you (either by check or by Paypal). Mr Rebates pays out cash back each month on the 1st of the month. But you must actually log in to your account and click the button that says "Request Paypal" to receive your cash back. (In comparison to Ebates, who sends it out automatically once per quarter).

Big Crumbs Cash Back

Another cash back program is called Big Crumbs.

It works just like Ebates and Mr Rebates, where you log in, then link to the store or coupon you want to shop from, and they will track your cash back amount. As always, Big Crumbs is also free to join.

Urgent Update about eBay cashback

URGENT UPDATE

Effective June 16, 2011, the eBay cash back with ALL the cash back websites is temporarily suspended. This includes eBates, Mr Rebates, Big Crumbs, Fat Wallet, Shop at Home, Pennyful, and all the others!

However, you can STILL get paid commissions on your eBay purchases, and you may even get up to 7% back. Read my Hubpages article about How you can STILL get eBay cashback

eBay Cash Back

The best cash back rebate program for eBay cash back is Mr Rebates.

Mr Rebates will give you 3% Cash Back on your eBay winning bids or Buy it Now purchases. But you must go thru the Mr Rebates link prior to placing your winning bid (not after you've won and are coming back to pay).

Some restrictions for eBay cash back:

Cash-back is awarded for the action of a Winning Bid or "Buy It Now" transaction by clicking through to eBay from Mr. Rebates. Maximum cash-back rebate of $30 per order.

Purchases of duplicate Item Numbers per 60 minute period will result in only one cash-back rebate per Item ID. I.E. Purchasing Item Number "123" in three separate orders in the same 60 minute span will result in only one rebate credited by eBay.

Cash-Back not available for:

* Bids placed with a sniping service
* eBay Motors purchases
* "Make an Offer" purchases
* eBay Real Estate
* eBay Charity items
* Auctions that do not generate a seller fee for any reason.

Why people are so upset with Bing’s closing bell? We have so many cash back sites like Ebates, FatWallet, AAfter Search, BigCrumbs and lots more to make use of.

Agreed. So many other options out there. To compare them all, check out www.cashreporter.com

Another good program is Mr Rebates Cashback. I've found that their cashback % is almost always higher than other programs for the same stores.

People are upset because if you worked it right, Bing almost always gave the most cashback. 8-10% for ebay, 5-10 for Dell, 10-15% for tigerdirect and circuitcity, upto 25% at HP... just way more than the other sites.

I agree MrRebates has been a bit higher. Fatwallet is usually a bit higher than ebates and I like to be able to leave a 'note' for each transaction.
