Ebates Cash Back Plus $10 free. One way to save money is to earn cash back by shopping through online cash back shopping portals or in-store. I’ve tried them all in the past but most of the retailers I shop online aren’t in any portals. The few that are offered minimal cash back and it was never worth my time to track whether a .50 rebate has posted.
Ebates emailed me around the holidays with in-store cash back deals and I tried them again, in-store at Bed Bath and Beyond and at Macy’s. It worked really well. The rebates showed up within 24 hours and I got about $25 cash back on purchases I was making anyway. Just be sure to link your Paypal account or they’ll mail you a Big Fat Check and which you then have to schlep it to the bank.
If you’re not already an Ebates member sign up with my link an get a free $10 Walmart gift card after you make a qualifying purchase totaling $25.
How in-store shopping works (watch a video)
- Join Ebates.
- Register your credit card(s). There are special rules for debit cards. Read each offer for the rules.
- Link in-store cash back offers and register credit cards
- Make in-store purchases.
- Get cash back!
Once you see an offer you like you can add your credit card. However you have to re-link offers after each use. So if you’re shopping around say Macy’s you’ll have to relink using the app after every purchase. Ugh!
