One of our New Year’s Resolutions is to watch our spending and get the most value for every dollar that is spend. Every penny saved really makes a difference, especially when it comes to renovating, decorating, and freshening homes and rental units. We want them to be updated and to look nice but we don’t have the funds right now to spend a fortune on them. That said, I want to take a moment to highlight (and thank) Ebates for putting cash back in our pockets.
I started using the website about a month ago while buying items online that I was already planning on purchasing. It was an added bonus for Christmas shopping. Then, Drew started using it too to purchase items he needed for a rental unit he’s currently renovating. Just in the past month, we’ve earned over $75 in cash. Yes, really!
Ebates already mailed us a check for $20 and we’ll get another one in a few weeks for nearly $60. I’ve seen cash back deals on purchases ranging from 1% to 25% based on the store and the time of year.
One of my best friends told me about Ebates over three years ago, but for whatever reason I didn’t take it seriously. Yep. I was stupid. I could have been earning so much FREE MONEY! So, don’t be like Maria circa 2015. Take this opportunity to earn money through stores you already love and shop with regularly.
Here’s how it works and how it can work for you:
Start by creating an Ebates account. Once you’ve done so, you can log on and see which brands/stores online are offering cash back deals. Each day is different but many of my favorite stores offer great cash back deals/percentages every day. Click the store you want to shop and then Ebates will take you to that website using its own special link. I love to shop with online coupons and get the very best deal and Ebates allows that too. Once you click the store link, you can log in to your own account at Kohl’s, Macy’s, Target, etc. and use whatever other coupons/discounts you have. The cash back from Ebates is just like a bonus! Drew and I have been using Ebates a lot this week for wedding purchases and home décor/necessities. Every cent adds up. I’ve generated the most cash back by booking a hotel through Ebates. We are traveling for a friend’s wedding soon and found the same hotel through Ebates with a better rate than the room block. PLUS, I also earned over $30 cash back just for booking the hotel through Ebates. Yes, please!
Ebates is offering a great bonus deal right now. Use this link to register and create an account and you can earn $10 EXTRA cash back during your first shopping trip. Happy shopping!
