Recently there is a buzz about what Ebates is, so since shopping on eBay for quite a while I wanted and in a personal level to know more about it. So, let’s get started!
Ebaytes was founded 10 years ago and today is the largest cash back shopping website. What they offer is a safe, easy,secure and hassle-free way to earn cash back on nearly all of your online purchases. Currently, over 1200 websites qualify through Ebates. Cash back rates range anywhere between 1% until 26% and earning cash back is easy.
Step by step how to :
Sign up is free! Ebates give you a $5 bonus for just signing up! There are no obligations to use Ebaytes but to receive your sign up bonus must make a cash back earning purchase. Use can use the search box at the top or the menu on the left to find and select the retailer you wish to earn cash back with. Just click on the “Shop Now” button and a new window will open to the retailer’s website. Simply navigate the retailer’s website as you normally would, make your purchase and in 48 hours cash back will be awarded to your Ebates account. There are no additional steps on your part.
How is cashback earned?
Ebates earns money as a commission on your online shopping purchases. Retailers pay Ebates for directing you to their websites. Then Ebates pays you a % of that commission for using their site. There is no limit to how much cash back you earn! Cash back is paid to you automatically four times a year. It is paid on of three ways. By check, via Pay pal or a donation to an organisation or family members of your choice.
How safe is it ?
Ebates is 100% safe and secure. They are accredited by the BBB and use Secure Socket Layer Internet connections to keep your information safe. Retailers have additional and independent website security. Ebates will never see your credit or debit card info. Ebates will never spam you email account. You only receive emails to inform you for cash back payments or for special Ebates promotions, which you can opt out of receiving. Also Ebates gives you a bonus for referring others. The standard referral bonus is $5 but sometimes they reward you with more! This means that friends and family can receive the $5 bonus and you will get an additional $5 bonus just for showing them Ebates. It also provides shoppers with retailer specials, discounts and coupons codes which you can apply to your purchases. These applied coupons will never interfere with the cash back you’ll receive and are just a bonus way to save money when shopping online.
There really is no limit to how much Ebates can save you and all you have to do is sign up and I’m really thinking it seriously to sign up for it. Any questions you have leave them in the comments below so we will be able to answer them!
