The cash back shopping portal, Ebates, is offering double cash back at many popular stores. While this isn’t as good as the 16% cash back they offered back in May, I am finding some great cash back opportunities at some popular stores. There are some luxury brands that are offering a today only increased back back offer, but many other merchants are offering these higher payouts through November 16th.
For example, Saks Fifth Avenue and Neiman Marcus are offering 10% cash back. Bergdorf Goodman and Drugstore.com is offering 8%. Barneys New York, Sephora, Gilt Groupe, and Nordstrom are offering 6% cash back.
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. Note that these screen shots below were taken awhile ago so the offers are not accurate with todays cash back offerings.
- 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.
- 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 cash back on your entire purchase, which is amazing!!!
This is a really really really good opportunity for cash back at participating merchants! Enjoy the extra savings!
