eBates is a great online cashback site that gives its users the chance to get generous cash rebates on all of their online purchases. To date, members have already earned a collective $100m dollars in rebates, evidence that this site really delivers. eBates has also been featured in the New York Times, on CNN, in Good Housekeeping and in the Wall Street Journal, so you can be sure that it's not a scam and you really are going to get your cash! With partnerships with a range of great brands and a number of exciting special features, eBates is a great choice for those looking to make their money stretch a little further.
Imagine walking into a store and spending $1,000 on a new laptop computer, and then being handed $100 on the way out of the store. Well, with eBates, that’s kind of what is going on! Users can enjoy shopping at more than 1,500 online stores in exactly the same way they are used to – the only difference is that they should access the stores through eBates, so the purchase can be traced back to their eBates account and they can be awarded their rebate. A number of major brands make up this 1,500 stores, including Barnes & Noble, Target, The Home Depot and many more, meaning you don’t even have to change where you shop to benefit from eBates generous rebates – just access the same sites through the eBates portal to start racking up the free cash!
Most cashback offers range from 4% to 20%, but occasionally users can pick up even more generous rebates – particularly good news when you’re making a big purchase. The eBates “Deals of the Week” offer users the chance to benefit from some seriously good value special offers, while also picking up their eBates rewards, while the double cashback deals that are also regularly on offer allow customers to purchase items at their regular prices, but also benefit from rebates at twice the usual rate. Finding all of these deals couldn’t be easier, with users being able to make use of the eBates search bar to find the store, product or deal they’re looking for. Perfect.
Users can ‘cash out’ from eBates once the balance of their account reaches just $25. While this may seem like a lot, with the rebates on offer at this site, it’s not likely to take you long to reach this figure. Members can cash out and receive their rebates in gift certificates for a number of major retailers and while this is great for most shoppers, many of our readers will find the lack of actual “cash”-out options (such as check or paypal) a little disappointing.
All in all, we enjoyed giving this site a try, finding the combination of generous rebates and great features (that make earning those rebates even easier) to be excellent. Millions of users have already given eBates a go – follow the link below to find out how you too can make money from your shopping.
