Here is my most recent "Big Fat Check"!
Here is my most recent "Big Fat Check"!

It's as Easy as 1, 2, 3

According to their website, "Using Ebates is as easy as 1, 2, 3!

  1. Sign up (It's free)
  2. Pick a Store or Coupon (We have thousands)
  3. Get cash back (On every purchase)

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!

Some of the Stores on Ebates

The list of stores on Ebates is too long to include all of them, but here are a few:

  • Nordstrom
  • The Apple Store
  • Target
  • WalMart
  • Banana Republic
  • Macy's
  • Sears
  • Kohl's
  • JC Penney
  • Barnes and Noble
  • Banana Republic
  • Gap
  • Old Navy

Ebates Daily Double

In addition to all the great benefits I have already described, Ebates also offers a "Daily Double". This is a website that doubles their cash back for one day only. You can sign up for a daily e-mail that notifies you of the "Daily Double".

Join Free and Pick Your Bonus

Don't just take my word for it, give Ebates a try. What do you have to lose? As of November 2011, you can join free and pick a gift card bonus. Here are your choices:

Barnes & Noble $10

Target $10

Home Depot $10 $10

Ebates $5 (this is $5 in your cash back account)

The gift card is earned once you make a $25 purchase.

      Hi cfin,

      Hubpages will not allow you to post a link, that is why I instructed readers to cut and paste. Good luck!

      Hi Sharon,

      I am curious if your "link" has caused you ay issues? I ask because I was going to add something similar to one of my hubs but was worried.

      I have been a member of Ebates for years as well and I agreee, great service and NO complaints! I had one problem last Christmas with Discovery store not honoring what they advertised on Ebates but this was not because of Ebates. I complained to Discovery Store and got a coupon for a future purchase. Great and timely review!
