Ebates is one of the largest cash back sites available. It was founded in 1999 and has paid more than one billion dollars in cash back to its members. By using Ebates, you can earn up to 40% cash back when you shop online at more than 2,500 stores!
Select the store on Ebates and make your purchase as you normally would. It can take under an hour to several days for the cash back to appear in your account, and varies from retailer to retailer, depending on their reporting times.
It’s possible to find “in store” cash back offers too. Use the Ebates browser extension to apply coupons for you and to see the lowest prices at different stores. Use the Ebates App for iPhone, Android and iPad for app-only offers and additional cash back. Keep checking the “double cash back stores” to earn even more cash back. Stores in this category are subject to change.
If you like Ebates, you can invite your friends to join. If they join and make a purchase of $25 or more, you get $25 added to your account and your referral receives a $10 bonus. If you apply for and use the Ebates Visa credit card, you can earn an additional 3% cash back on your purchases.
Payments are made by PayPal or check, with a minimum payout requirement of $5. One drawback of this program is that payments are sent only one time every 3 months.
