I haven’t seen better days than earning money by shopping! Of course, you are thinking, how? Like really? Yes! You can get cash back for your shopping too.
I had heard about it but didn’t know it would make such a difference in my life. Imagine! You are spending money by shopping and then getting that back!
Its called Ebates. I signed up and thought why not get cash back for my shopping, even if they are a few pennies. But hey! I didn’t earn pennies, I earned dollars! and I mean a lot!
Seriously! I am not joking! Ebates sends out what they call a “Big Fat Check” every quarter of the year. This Big Fat Check is your earnings from your shopping for the 3 months and you can get it via Check or Paypal.
What is Ebates?
Ebates is a kind of online store, where they don’t have actual products. Rather, they have partnered with a variety of brands/companies/stores like Amazon, eBay, Kohls, Walmart, macy’s, Sephora, Groupon, Nordstrom and 2000 more. So you actually shop through Ebates at those stores to get your cash back! You just shop normally as you do.
How does Ebates work
All you need to do is Sign up with Ebates and start shopping!
As a new Ebates member, you earn $10 when you make a qualifying purchase of $25 with the first 90 days.
And it’s easy to list $25 worth of items in your cart. Its Halloween, you can even buy this 4 ft Large Huge Black Creepy Cloth Spider.
So, To earn cash back, start shopping by first visiting Ebates and find the store you would like to shop at. Else, you won’t earn cash back if you visit those stores directly.
