Can you believe that we are only a few short weeks until the Holiday season is in full swing? Right now we are in that lull between Halloween and Thanksgiving so for most of us the Holiday craziness hasn’t begun but it will be here before you know it.
The kickoff to the holiday shopping season for most of us is Black Friday and Cyber Monday, where we will all be snagging deals left on right on our holiday gifts.
You don’t have to wait for Black Friday however, to save money while shopping online. Over the past few years every time I have shopped online I have used Ebates, which is an online rebate site featuring thousands of online stores. I have saved HUNDREDS of dollars and earned just as much in cash back rewards using Ebates, but yet, when I talk to friends many of them don’t use it because they either don’t understand it or haven’t heard of it. Are you one that hasn’t heard of it? Well, keep reading!
How does Ebates work? Ebates pays you a percentage of your shopping total back just for using their site. It is a great way to save money while shopping online and if you do any shopping online and your aren’t using Ebates then you are truly losing money.
It works like this: Go to Ebates.com and look for the store you want to shop at. Click on that store and a tracking number will be started for you that will take you directly to their stores web page where you then shop and pay as normal. In a few days you will get an email letting you know how much your rebate is and then you wait for your check, which is mailed at least four times a year.
Every store offers a different percentage back when you shop through Ebates, I have seen some as low as 1% and some as many as 40% off–thats right, 40% off!
There really is no strings attached and you should definitely check it out. Have fun shopping!!
