How Ebates Works
Ebates pays their members cash back every time they shop. They also provide them with the best coupon codes and deals online. It is not unheard of to receive a discount, free shipping and cash back for shopping through Ebates. Each time you shop through their website, you will accumulate rebates. Once you start using the site on a regular basis, you should receive a "Big Fat Check" every 3 months.
A Very Satisfied Customer
I have been a member of Ebates since 2001 and don't have a single bad thing to say. They consistently provide the best deals and I am always excited to get my "Big Fat Check" in the mail! I have earned almost $500 cash back on my purchases since I joined and I am not a big spender. If you are someone who buys a lot of merchandise then you have the potential to earn way more!
