Ebates is a Great Place for Rebates

If you ar elike me, you are always looking for great deals when shopping, or ways to make money online, and/or recieve cash back. We have gone through credit card rewards programs, online selling, and rebate programs. Well here I have a great site for you to check out. Ebates is a site that gives you various amount of rebates for stores that you alrady shop at. I know that I shop online often, and I have recieved over $1500 between two rebate sites. I bought items that I was already going to get, and recieved some money back. Also, one great aspect to this site, is that they list all available coupons and coupon codes for over 1,200 stores. You can earn a $5 sign up bonus if you use this link below. This link is safe and checked with anti-virus.

Simply copy and paste this link into your browser address bar and it will take you directly to the site.

How Ebates Works!

First off, you have to sign up for an Ebates account. What I like about signing up for this account is the fact that you do not have to include any personal information such as bank account. All they need is your name, email address, and street address (where to send the check). You do not have to worry about checking reward points, there aren't any forms to fill out, and there are absolutely no fees. Ebates receive commision from sending shoppers their way, and in turn ebates uses that money to give you cash back. By joining through this Ebates link, you can get started by earning your first $5 just for signing up. Simply copy and paste the link below and it will take you directly to the ebates site.


As of right now, there are 3 ways to get paid. Ebates is looking into other options to further the experience, however at this time, there are 3 ways.

You can get paid by check-You can request a check once you reach the $10 minimum. That is the reason they need your address. All mailing fees are on Ebates, and you pay nothing.

You can request Paypal. Again all fees are on Ebates, you do not have to pay any fees on this.

You can also choose to send it to your favorite charity or organization.


Step 1: Sign up for an Ebates account

Step 2: Let's say for example you wanted to order something online at Home Depot. You would first log on to your Ebates account and type Home Depot in the search box in the upper right corner, or you can scroll the box in the upper left corner and find Home Depot. Home Depot for example has a 3% rebate. There will also be a list of available coupons and codes that you can use. Once you click on Home Depot it will bring you automatically to the Home Depot site and you would shop as regualar. If I want the item right away, I will even shop through Ebates and use pick up in store. You can still get the rebate that way. Your tracking ticket will automatically be attached to the shopping on the site you use. There is nothing more for you to do. Shop as normal.

Step 3: you will get an email anywhere from 1-3 days stating your rebate is posted to your account. It's that simple.

A few things you should know...

Just be aware that you will get your "pending rebates" within a few days, however it takes up to 90 days for it to post as available. This is so people do not buy thousands of dollars worth of stuff, and return it just to get the rebates. It is very understandable, but I just wanted to be clear. So if you buy an item using ebates today, it will "clear" in 3 months. If you buy an item using ebates tomorrow, it will "clear" in 3 months and a day.

Every three months ebates will send you your monies earned via the method you signed up for if you have earned over $5.01. If you have earned less that $5.01, those monies will be carried over to the next pay period.
