*Expired* Get $5 Bonus & Cash Back with Ebates

by Freebies4Mom on June 3, 2009 6:54 am

Would you love to get cash rebates on most of your online purchases? Sign-up with Ebates for your $5 sign-up bonus and when you do your shopping through Ebates you can earn cash back from hundreds of online stores you already shop at. This is a great way to get rebates on online purchases you are normally making. You are simply getting to all the online stores you usually shop at by clicking on the link at Ebates – it’s a simple rebate program. And it’s putting money back in my wallet and yours!

A small bonus when you sign-up is that they will put a $5 sign-up bonus into your account. As soon as you make your first $5 purchase through Ebates (from any store that offers cash back) then that $5 bonus is yours plus whatever cash-back percentage offered for that store. So, it’s like a $5 rebate on any item you purchase. You will get paid that $5 sign-up bonus as soon as you earn at least $5.01 in cash back from your purchasesthrough Ebates.

Ebatesis a fabulous way to create your own cash rebate on almost every online purchase you make. Plus they give you easy access to some of the best coupon codes and promotions for your favorite stores.

How easy is Ebates to use? It’s really only 3 steps:
1. Visit Ebates and sign-up (or sign-in if you are already registered)
2. Type in the name of the store in the top left-hand corner (i.e. Target) then click “Search”
3. Click on the store to shop. You will see how much cash back you will earn (4% at Target) and what coupons are available to use at that store. Just click on the name of the store and you are on your way to earning that percentage cash back on your purchase.

See how easy it is? And you can still use coupon codes because Ebates helps you find those coupon codes! The best part is that Ebates gives you the option to receive a check in the mail every 3 months when you earned at least $5.01 cash back in your account. Or you can have your cash deposited into your PayPal account. There is absolutely no paper work or follow-up for you to do to get your cash rebates, you simply find your online store on Ebates and then click on your store to start your shopping. You can also choose to not receive emails from Ebates by visiting “Communication Preferences” in “My Account”. This is honestly one of the easiest online rebate programs I’ve ever used. And my rebates are adding up fast even though I do not make many purchases online.

I do not use Ebates as a reason or an incentive to make online purchases. I use it as a way to get some cash back on purchases I would normally be making. And I will admit that I often forget to visit Ebates before I start shopping (and therefore miss out on cash back). But you’ll see a reminder up on the right side of my blog to help you get to Ebates faster. I’m even going to print out the Ebates logo and tape it on my computer monitor to help me remember.

Ebates is my favorite cash back site, read more about why I love it in these posts:

Anonymous – Be patient because I believe it takes a few days for you to see your referral bonus in your account. And you plus all 3 friends need to make your first purchase through Ebates in order to receive that referral credit. Contact Ebates with any questions you have!-HeatherFreebies 4 Mom
