Are you planning to shop online today for Cyber Monday? If so, make sure to sign up first forÂ Ebates.Â Â With Ebates, you earn a percentage of what you spend online back as a check or via paypal.Â So for example, when you want to make a purchase at say a store like Loft, you log on to Ebates first, and then select your store â€“ so in this case, youâ€™d click on Loft.Â Stores vary in how much of a percentage you get back.
Today, Iâ€™ve already spent $43.75 at the Loft. But before I made my purchase, I logged on to Ebates. Loft is currently offering 3% cashback. So Iâ€™ll earn $1.31 back on my purchase. Not really big, but every little bit helps.Â Even some travel sites are associated with Ebates â€“ when my boyfriend and I booked a vacation on Orbitz, we ended up getting $20 back!
In addition to getting cash back, Ebates also has a list of promotions and coupon codes on their Web site, and when you sign up, you get a free $10 gift card to select retailers (my pick would be $10 to Target). Â If your online shopping,Â EbatesÂ is always my first-stop shop and since joining in 2010, Iâ€™ve gotten $147.75 back.
