Last week Ebate’s announced their “Birthday Week” where you can receive 15% cash back at over 400 online merchants. While this is an awesome opportunity to save a ton of money on your online shopping, this promotion is ending TODAY! Fort those that shop online often, this is probably a promotion you want to look into!
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
I personally had to purchase a wedding gift for my brother so this was the perfect opportunity to snag a good deal. In addition to the 15% cash back, I was also able to stack it with Macy’s Friends & Family 30% discount (now expired, but I am sure there are many other coupons available!), so my $530 item (including tax) only cost me $319! This gave me a 40% discount on an item I was going to purchase anyways!
This is a really really really good opportunity for cash back at participating merchants! Enjoy the extra savings!
