Ebates

It is time to introduce you to one of my favorite internet shopping web sites. This is the single, easiest way to get a percentage of what you spend on the internet back in your pocket.

Ebates. [1]

Here is how it works:

Step One: You log onto ebates [1] and search for the store where you want to shop or the item you want to purchase. Hit the search button. I just searched for Baby GAP, as I have a nephew coming shortly.

Step Two: Two things will show up on the results page. One is a list of all possible matches for the store or item you were looking for. Next to each will be a percentage you can get back if you purchase something on that web site. For example, it shows that whatever I spend at Baby Gap I get 8% back through ebates [2].

Step Three: Then click on the orange button that says “Shop Now”. In my case it will takes me to the same Baby Gap web site I would have reached by typing in www.babygap.com.

Step Four: Shop like you normally would. You get the same discounts, and can enter in any sales or free shipping codes you have.

That’s it.

Then, about 24 hours after the purchase, 8% of the total spent will be credited to your ebates [2] account. It’s like an additional discount on your shopping.

So let’s say I go to Baby Gap and I spend $50.00 on my future nephew. In a day or two, there will be $4 (8% of $50) sitting in my ebates [2] account.

Once you reach $5 you can request a check and it will come in the mail at the end of the quarter. Or you can just leave it until you need to cash out for something special.

Sound too good to be true? How about the fact that it’s FREE! Yep, doesn’t cost you a penny. AND if you sign up through this link [1] you also get a $5 sign up bonus (plus they sent me a couple bucks which I promise to use to keep this web site up and running)!

(I have used them for a while now and I promise it’s the real deal. They do e-mail me about once a week to let me know if any stores have really good rebates but I have never gotten any spam or pop ups on my computer from using this web site.)

Give it a shot, I promise you will love it!
