Ebates: Combine with Free Shipping Today + $10 Gift Card for NEW Members!

This post may contain affiliate links. Please see my full disclosure policy for details.

Today is Free Shipping day to thousands of on-line retailers.  Another way to save is to make sure that you go through Ebates to do your shopping!!   I thought I’d share what Ebates is and why right NOW is the best time to get signed up with them.

First of all, let me explain what this site is about.  Ebates is a cash back site.  They pay you when you shop at select merchants on-line.  It is just so simple to use them.  Here’s what you do:

  1. Create an account at Ebates.
  2. Every time you get ready to shop on-line, go to Ebates and find the merchant.
  3. Click the link on Ebates and start your shopping trip.  When you do, you see a window that pops up and shows it is redirecting you (so you know that you are doing it the right way).
  4. Within 10 days, you will see the cash back from your purchase in your account.
  5. Once you reach $20 cash back, they mail you a check!

If you have not signed up yet, I would do so today!!  The reason is that tomorrow, December 12th, they are launching Cyber Monday 2.  They will offer double cash back to hundreds of merchants.  They will increase Walmart 6% (normally only 1%) and Toys R Us will earn you 10% cash back (normally 4%)!!!

If you are new to Ebates, you can even earn a $10 gift card when you make your first purchase!  You will be able to choose a card from Home Depot, Target, Barnes & Noble or Magazines.com.  If you would rather pass on the gift card, you can just get a $5 cash credit from Ebates in your account instead.    Once you spend $25 within 30 days of signing up, you will earn your bonus….and that is really not very hard to do!!

I would go ahead and sign up right now for Ebates so that you are ready to shop tomorrow and turn those on-line deals into real live MONEY MAKERS!!
