Ebate’s is celebrating their “Birthday Week” where you can receive 15% cash back at over 200 online merchants. If you shop online often, this is probably a promotion you want to look into! I will absolutely be taking advantage of this offer and will be ordering stuff through Ebates that I was going to order anyways, i.e., my brothers wedding gift from Macy’s! Keep in mind though that some stores were only offering the 15% cash back for a few days throughout the week, so you might not see the same savings every day.
How does a Ebates work?
I first want to preface it that going through an online shopping portal to earn cash back will take you an extra minute, if that. Ultimately, you go to the shopping portal first, but complete your online shopping through the merchants site directly. In the background, the purchase is tracked and you’ll get credit by going through Ebates.
- First, you go to Ebates.com. If you are not already a member, you’ll receive a $10 bonus after you spend $25 within the first 90 days of signing up. You must sign up through a referral link (thank you in advance for using mine, but feel free to post yours in the comments section!)
- Search for the store you are looking to make a purchase at and click the green “Search” button. You can also access all the “15% cash back” merchants here.
- Click the “Shop Now” button. Right above it you’ll see the current cash back listed.
- Ebates will then take you directly to the merchants site. For the example above, you will be taken directly to macys.com as if you typed that in your web browser to begin with. There is absolutely no difference, but you are now getting 15% cash back on your entire purchase, which is amazing!!!
Some popular 15% back participating merchants:
- Neiman Marcus Last Call
- Neiman Marcus
- Lord & Taylor
- Personalization Mall
- Saks OFF 5th
This is a really really really good opportunity for cash back at participating merchants! You can also earn cash back on top of using a coupon in many cases! For example, Macy’s is currently offering 30% off (use coupon code FRIENDS) for their Friends & Family offer (expires today!) That means on top of the 30% savings you’ll also receive 15% cash back on the final price paid. So a $200 item will cost you $140 and then you’ll receive $21 back from Ebates! This is giving you 40% off!!
Enjoy the extra savings!
