If you do a lot of online shopping, you do not want to miss this promotion! The online shopping portal Ebates is offering 12% cash back at over 350 merchants. This is a one day opportunity where many stores are offering a hefty increase on the cash back you’ll earn.
How does a Ebates work?
I first want to preface first 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 “12% 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 12% cash back on your entire purchase, which is amazing!!!
This is a really really really good opportunity for cash back at participating merchants! You can typically also earn cash back on top of using a coupon. Enjoy the extra savings!
