The cash back shopping portal, Ebates, is offering double cash back at many popular stores. I am finding some heavily increased cash back opportunities and this seems to be much better then their double cash back promotion back in November. If you are planning on doing any online shopping today, I highly suggest checking out Ebates to see if you can save some extra money. This is a TODAY ONLY promotion to celebrate Green Monday (whatever that is!).
For example, JCPenney, Sephora, Bloomingdales, Kohls, Living Social, Saks 5th Avenue, Lancome, Sephora, Barneys New York, Groupon, The Body Shop, J. Crew, and Carters are all offering 10% cash back (there are many more as well!). Macy’s and Shoebuy.com are actually offering 12% cash back, and eBags is offering 21% 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!
