Did you know that you can make money shopping online?
I have been using a site called Ebates for a few years now to earn cash back on all of my online purchases. I have mentioned it a few times on my blog, but never spent enough time telling you how awesome it is to use. I actually make money shopping online!
It is a really simple concept, but a lot of people don’t take the time to do it. Ebates is a legitimate cash back site that will allow you to earn money back on all of your online shopping purchases. It is the perfect way to earn money and it has turned into a nice form of passive income.
How does it work?
First, you need to create an Ebates account. It is free to join and they even offer an incentive for signing up.
Once you have an account you are ready to start earning cash back.
So, when you are ready to make a purchase online you first go to your Ebates account and search for the retailer. Ebates will show you the percentage of money back that you can receive when you make a purchase from that specific retailer. Then, all you have to do is click on their link and it will track your purchase to figure out your cash-back amount.
For example, if you are shopping online and making at purchase from Old Navy (this is how I shop for my kids clothes online) you would first sign into your Ebates account and then search for Target. Once you find their store on Ebates’ site you can just click ‘shop now.’ This will take you directly to Old Navy’s website and then track the items you buy.
Once I make a purchase from Old Navy it will show up in my Ebates account so that I can see how much cash back you will receive.
You are probably wondering how this is all possible… it is affiliate marketing.
Ebates earns a commission for your purchase and gives a percentage of it back to you. You can typically expect to receive anywhere from 2% to 6% cash back on your purchases. Pretty cool, right?
This money will accumulate on a quarterly basis. This means, you will not receive the amount back until the quarter is up. You can choose to receive your payment through check, Paypal or even an Amazon gift card. I love adding this money into my personal paypal account and then waiting until we make large purchases.
Is it real?
Yes, this is completely real.
The last few payouts I have made over $450. This was from the cash back that I earned from purchases, and also from their referral program. Ebates will give you $5 for every friend you refer that makes a $25 purchase. Plus, they also offer BONUSES like refer 2 friends and get $50! Check out their promotions under the ‘refer a friend’ tab! This is how I earn the majority of my income from Ebates.
All you have to do is copy your referral link from your account and share it with your friends and family. It is super simple! Plus, you are helping your friends make some extra money too when they use Ebates.
What kind of retailers are on Ebates?
This list can go on and on.
They have over 2,000 retailers including big names like Toys R Us, Macy’s, American Eagle, Etsy, Amazon, Sears, Expedia, etc.
If you are going to be shopping online anyway, why not earn money.
There is no reason to be leaving money on the table when you can take advantage of Ebates. The next time you are shopping online, head to Ebates to check if the store is one of their retailers. Then see what kind of offers and cash back they have going on so that you can earn some money back from your purchase.
Back to school shopping and during the holidays is the best time to accumulate money in your account with Ebates.
All you have to do is join ebates and you too can start earning money, plus get a $10 gift card or cash bonus! It is simple and you will love utilizing their double cash back days from your favorite retailers. Plus, you can refer your friends to earn BONUSES.
