If you do a lot of online shopping, you do not want to miss this promotion! The online shopping portal Ebates is offering 16% cash back at over 150 merchants. This opportunity will be available between May 11 and May 18, although there are some stores (i.e., Kohl’s and Bloomingdales) that will be available today only. I am not sure if other stores will get added to the mix throughout the week as a one day only special.
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 “16% 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 bloomingdales.com as if you typed that in your web browser to begin with. There is absolutely no difference, but you are now getting 16% cash back on your entire purchase, which is amazing!!!
Some popular 16% back participating merchants:
- Kohl’s (today only)
- Bloomingdales (today only)
- Amazon (up to 16% cash back)
- Living Social
- New Balance
- Shari’s Berries (combine this with the Amex Offers promo too!)
- TOM’s Shoes
- UGG Australia
- 1-800-FLOWERS (combine this with the Amex Offers promo too!)
- Eastern Mountain Sports
- Lord and Taylor
- Rite Aid
- Saks Fifth Avenue
- ULTA Beauty
This is a really really really good opportunity for cash back at participating merchants! For example, Macy’s is currently offering 25% off a $250+ home purchase (use coupon code MORE). That means on top of the 25% savings you’ll also receive 16% cash back on the final price paid. So a $250 item will cost you $200 and then you’ll receive $32 back from Ebates! This is giving you 37% off!!
Enjoy the extra savings!
