I can’t think of an easier way to save money on your holiday shopping than to take advantage of Ebates. I mean, if used correctly, it takes almost zero effort.
If you’re not familiar with Ebates, they offer you cash back for your online shopping. For example, right now Ebates is offering 6% cash back on your Macy’s online purchases. All you need to do is go to the Ebates website, find the Macy’s store link, click it, and then shop as your normally would.
If you end up spending $100 at Macy’s, a few days later you’ll have $6.00 in your Ebates account. Then every so often, Ebates cuts a check for your total rebate amount across all stores you have shopped at and mails it to you. Easy peasy.
BONUS TIP #1: If you use Google Chrome as your browser, install the Ebates Cash Back Button which automatically recognizes when you shop on a website that is eligible for an Ebates cash back bonus.
How you can get $10
Ebates is running a referral promotion right now and I love it because everyone wins. All you need to do is use my Ebates referral link to sign up for a free Ebates account. Then when you spend your first $25, Ebates will add a $10 bonus to your cash back account. They’ll also add $25 to my cash back account. Like I said, we both win.
If it bothers you that I get $25 compared to your $10, sign up using my referral link and then start promoting your own Ebates referral link. Then you’ll get the initial $10 plus an additional $25 for each person you refer who spends $25.
Note: This Ebates referral bonus expires 12/31/17.
BONUS TIP #2:Not an online shopper? You can still take advantage of Ebates In-Store Cash Back program by linking your credit cards to your Ebates account.
