You read that title correctly — you can get money back for doing your holiday shopping. Pretty amazing, right? All you have to do is remember to log in to Ebates.com and shop from there. It’s a great solution for people like me who love savings but don’t necessarily love hunting around for coupons.
Let me explain:
Step 1: Register for an account with Ebates.
Step 2: Search for a retailer using Ebates’ search functionality. Let’s say you’ve found the perfect infinity scarf for your sister at Nordstrom and it’s already in your cart. Cool — just enter the Nordstrom site via Ebates first, and Ebates links your account to your Nordstrom purchases. (Ebates gives different percentages of cash back depending on participating retailers. Nordstrom purchases, for example, qualify you for 5.0% cash back.)
Step 3: Continue to shop and check-out as you typically would.
Step 4: Enjoy your cash back rewards from Ebates. It’s that simple!
In addition to everyday cash back savings, Ebates also hooks you up with some pretty amazing coupons, too, so be on the lookout for those emails. To make things even more streamlined, you can link Ebates to your most-used browser so it automatically tracks your online shopping and gives you cash back for money spent with participating retailers.
I’m a big fan, and wanted to share the cash back love, especially as Cyber Monday approaches. Enjoy!
Any other online money-saving tips to pass along as we enter the Christmas shopping season, friends? (I am doing all of my holiday shopping online this year, and it’s amazing. I highly recommend it.)
