Ok, so the headline may sound salesy, but it’s true. Today I’m going to show you how to use Ebates to get paid while you shop.
I’m all about a sale and good deal. And shopping in general.
Ebates makes it easy to save money and you know I love the easy-hack-type stuff. I am not about complicating lives over here!
Today we are going to be discussing what Ebates is, how it works, if it’s legit (IT IS NOT A SCAM), and most importantly, how it benefits you!
The short version is, Ebates pays you to shop.
Boom. Mic drop.
Every time you shop online, Ebates gives you a percentage of cash back, and it provides you with access to the best deals, coupons, and promo codes available to fill into those DISCOUNT code boxes at checkouts online!
Here’s how it works.
Retailers like Amazon, Petco, and Target pay Ebates for referring customers to shop with them. Then, Ebates gives shoppers a percentage of those earnings.
For example, let’s say Ebates was offering 10% cash back for shopping at Amazon and you buy something for $500.
You’d get $50 cash back.
It’s just that simple.
To find out how much % you will be earning cash back, simply look beside the store you will be shopping!
Often Ebates will offer double cash back at certain retailers. Please forgive the poor photo quality here, but I thought you really needed to see this example of how Ebates looks!
See the red % numbers under the retailers? That’s the Cash Back amount!
Ebates is also 100% free.
You’re not joining a club or a cult or anything.
And you can still use other promo codes and discounts along with the cash back from Ebates!
Is It A Scam?
Ebates Is NOT A SCAM!!!!
Ebates makes their money by being an affiliate. That is how they are able to pay people like you and me. See, Ebates makes money when we shop through their link, just like I make a little bit of money when you shop through one of my links!
Let me break it down.
Take Macy’s, for example. Macy’s is listed on Ebates.com. Macy’s pays a percentage to Ebates for being an affiliate and referring customers to them. Ebates turns around and gives you a little bit of that percenatge for using their website. Everyone comes out a winner here.
There is no scam going down.
And Ebates is easy to use.
Here are a few ways to save and get paid to shop with Ebates.
If you shop on your phone, then this one’s for you. Ebates will notify you when there is a sale or deal going on so you won’t miss it.
Install the Ebates Cashback Button on Browser
This is where the magic happens! When you have it installed Ebates automatically finds the best promo codes and deals for you and adds them to your shopping cart! No more searching for codes! It’s fabulous!
If you don’t want to download the app or cash back button, you can go old school and sign in and shop. Ebates works with over 1,700 retailers like Amazon, Macy’s, Barnes & Noble, & Target-you just log in and find out what’s on sale.
Refer Your Friends
Alright now, I know nobody wants to be salesy, except for me,(I’m using my affiliate link in this post)but why wouldn’t you tell your friends and family about Ebates? They get to save money, and you earn a little cash every time someone signs up.
All you have to do is click and share.
So, yeah. I kinda love Ebates.
Think about it. We are living in a world where just about everyone shops online for something. Why not take advantage of the best deals available?
