Do you shop online alot? Do you happen to use Ebates? I do! In fact, since I live way out in the sticks, I do most of my shopping for cake supplies online (except for actual ingredients). Anyway, a couple of days ago, I got this email from Ebates:
Of course I was thrilled! You see… by shopping through Ebates, I earn cash back (free money!) on many of my purchases and it only takes a few extra clicks! Ebates is FREE to join and they often offer bonuses for shopping at certain stores or referring friends!
I know (and you do too!) that you won’t get rich this way, but pennies add up and I love getting my quarterly payment from Ebates… it’s just a little bonus spending money that I always forget is coming! Since I joined way back in 2008, they’ve sent me $273.38!
Right now if sign up and then you refer 3 friends, you’ll get an extra $30 in your account… and if you’re wondering… YES, if 3 of you sign up through my link and then do your first $25 purchase through Ebates by September 30, 2012, then I’ll earn the $30 bonus! Whoo-Hoo!
Here’s how shopping through Ebates works:
- Sign up for Ebates.
- Start shopping. You can make your first purchase now or later, just remember to login to your Ebates account and search for the store where you want to shop.
- Click through their links when you have a purchase to make online. You can see details of how to do this here (my old frugal blog!) and you’re on your way to earning!
