One thing that has saved me money in the past year is joining EBates. When I need to make an online purchase (and almost all my purchases are completed online), I start at the EBates.com website to check to see if the store has a cash-back bonus and coupon code. I have saved money on all my basics--grocery items, books, clothing, school supplies--in addition to receiving two rebate checks for cash-back bonuses.
While many cash-back bonuses are linked to usage of a particular credit card, EBates is not. I simply shop online as I usually do, then note the discount offer and cash-back offer. I find the EBates dashboard very easy to understand and to use. I had a problem with one purchase, and an e-mail sent to their customer service resulting in a positive resolution within twenty-four hours.
If you shop online at all, would you please consider joining EBates via my link? The link is also on the sponsor's panel to the right. I saved approximately ten percent on my recent purchases made through the site; plus, I received a Target gift card for signing up as well as two of their "Big Fat Rebate Checks" since I joined last summer. I don't buy much, but the individual bonus amounts add up. In addition to the rebate checks, cash-back bonuses may be taken in gift card form.
EBates offers cash back deals and special coupon codes from major retailers, such as ToysRUs, WalMart, Amazon, Sephora, JCPenney, Kohl's, Land's End, among many others. EBates also offers bonuses from Canandian retailers. On Cyber Monday, EBates has special offers for even greater savings.
When you sign up using my link and make a qualified purchase ($25.00 at some point in the next year), I earn a commission of $5.00. The money I earn helps me to support my family, and the commission does not add to the cost of your purchases. We both win.
I do not recommend services unless I use them myself, and I have experienced nothing but good results from using EBates. Always investigate thoroughly and read the fine print to make sure that something I recommend is right for you.
Whatever form they take, cash-back bonuses stretch our buying dollars and make for a lovely addition to the family fisc.
