Shop Through Ebates for Cash Back Every Time


Over the past few years, I have become an expert in frugal online shopping. I’ve done a complete swing from one who always liked to shop in person. I just couldn’t get away from the huge savings that is to be had by shopping online, especially during the holidays.

With my discovery of tagging teaming my favorite online shopping duos of Ebates and Vitacost.com, I’ve saved hundreds.

Most of us are slowly being educated in all the great online deals, but what many don’t know is that you can save IN ADDITION to what the brands offer.   By pairing their deals with Ebates, you can also earn cash back from E-bates on most of your online purchases.  You should not shop online without checking to see the benefits.

In fact, Ebates will be Doubling Cash Back at 20 stores, including Walmart, Kohl’s, Sears, Nordstrom, Bath and Body Works, and many more. In addition, Ebates will be Doubling Cash Back at  500 stores during Black Friday!

For instance, when I first discovered one of my favorite online savings – Vitacost.com where I save on many of my health, whole foods and supplement products, I signed up for my free $10 credit fromVitacost  first, but then I paired that $10 free cash by shopping Vitacost through Ebates for an additional 4% cash back.

Every quarter I get a check back from Ebates,  no requirements, and you can enjoy the cheapest prices on-line as well as get a nice check. Plus, if you are new to Ebates, you get to choose an additional $10 Gift Card just for registering. I choose Home Depot because of all the many DIY projects I have going on.

Use Ebates as a “portal” to all of your favorite online retailers,and you’ll receive a percent of your purchase back via check or Paypal. You can learn more about Ebates and sign up for an account here.

  102. I signed up with Ebates about 3 or 4 years ago via one of the blogs I eventually found yours thru.. I dont remember which. Every once in a while, I forget to go thru them & I want to kick myself but when I do, it tickles me to pieces , knowing Im getting an addition % off. I just used my Ebates balance on Amazon last week which was really awesome. I’d never done that before.

    What would I do with the $100 if I win? Im not sure. I just lost my job of 14 years so my purse-strings have been pulled tight.. I’ll probably give it to my daughter who is expecting my second grand-baby and lives 1200 miles away.

  158. I stumbled upon eBates on a blog that was sharing advice about how to make extra cash online. I have been hooked ever since. I personally have made over $100 in just a year. It really is that easy. As for the $100, I would put in my (empty) savings account where I get 1% interest. Then I can be more motivated to save some extra cash!

  233. Linda Dietz says:

    What would I do with $100? There are so many good needs during this time of the year. Family in need@our church, a local food pantry, Samaritan’s Purse to help with the many worthwhile projects they do, our local Salvation Army…I would have to put it to prayer to see what was on God’s heart!

  234. I signed up for ebates on my daughter’s website. I then signed up for Vitacost which was a natural for me since I take mega doses of daily supplements (and force them on my hubby as well). I get so pumped with the savings I receive on these supplements and other healthy food items. It’s not over there because I then eagerly wait for my Ebates check. How neat is that!! I’m sold on Ebates!

  235. I joined ebates a few months ago. I’d use the $100 to go toward an iPad that I’m hoping to buy for my husband for Christmas!

  236. I’d put it toward a new KitchenAid. I signed up for E-bates a few months ago through a blog I follow, but I don’t remember which one.
