This is a quick reminder that today (August 29th) is the last day to earn triple cash back at many popular stores using the online shopping portal Ebates. 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.
My personal favorites offering a ridiculously high cash back include: Saks Off 5th (12%), Neiman Marcus (12%), JCPenney (12%), Nike (12%), Groupon (9%), Macy’s (9%), Living Social (9%), Boden (6%), eBags (18%), DICKS (9%), Gilt City (9%), LOFT (6%), Shoes.com (15%), Pet Smart (9%), and many others.
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. It is super easy! 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!!!
You can also download an Ebates to your web browser so you can easily see the cash back offered directly from the merchants site. You can learn more about this here. This is a really really really good opportunity for cash back at participating merchants! Enjoy the extra savings!
