What is Ebates?

I absolutely LOVE Ebates. Since having B, alot of my shopping is done online. I still like to go to the mall and wander around, but if I really want to be efficient, shop the sales, get the best deals, doing it with an infant is not the way. Ebates is for any of you online shoppers. 

Basically, you start on the Ebates page and link to whatever website you want to shop at. So...let's say you want to order a new carseat (I say this because this was our reality a few weeks ago). You can order said carset from a website such as Babies R Us, BuyBuyBaby, or All 3 great stores, all offer free shipping, all offer the carseat for relatively the same price. So, check Ebates, see which store offers the most cash back and buy from there! 

HUH? Too easy? Must be a scam? Well here's how Ebates works:

 "Just like almost every other online shopping center, we get a commission from the stores when you make a purchase. Instead of keeping that money - like almost all other sites do - we share it with you!" --Ebates.

Seems crazy right? It's not! It's totally legit! Since I started using Ebates, roughly a year ago, I've already received over $135.00. They send you a check, yes an actual check, in the mail every quarter.  So basically I'm getting money back for things I'm already planning to buy! AND with many stores offering free shipping or ship to store options, you don't pay extra for those perks AND you get money back! I posted a link on the side of this page to direct you to Ebates. Feel free to look around, check out what stores they work with and what the cash back potential is at these stores. I guarantee you won't be disappointed! I've made Ebates my homepage just so I am reminded when I log on the computer to start there if I plan on shopping!! I hope you have the same success!

  1. I'm so glad you got me into Ebates nearly a year ago! I still love getting the checks in the mail and am now "trained" to check for an Ebates-friendly site before ordering anything online!
