My number 1 rule when shopping online is you should ALWAYS go through an online shopping portal first. It is by far the easiest way to earn FREE money or airline miles on purchases you’d be doing anyways. Well, it looks like a relatively new shopping portal called RebatesMe is trying to incentivize new members to join right before Black Friday. Just for signing up, you’ll receive $15 added to your account for FREE! No other requirement needed — no need to spend a certain amount, no need to find a million friends to also join the site, ABSOLUTELY NOTHING! It will take you probably a minute at best to earn this $15 which is way more than I make on a minute-basis!
They are also trying to get you to spread the word about their site and will pay out $15 to the person who referred you. So you might as well sign up and spam your friends with your referral link. FYI – This is my referral link in the post. Thank you in advance for using it, but feel free to leave yours in the comments section as well.
I just spent a few minutes comparing the payouts of RebatesMe against some of the other cash back site portals, such as Ebates, TopCashBack, and BeFrugal, and I must say they are very competitive. For example, RebatesMe is offering 14% cash back at Macys, where the rest are offering between 3%-13%. Neiman Marcus is offering 15% cash back at Neiman Marcus, where the rest are offering between 8%-10%. On a large purchase, that cash back difference can be huge! With this upcoming Black Friday and Cyber Monday, make sure to sign up for all the sites and use the one that will offer you the best payout!
