APP Saturday: Ebates

Last week, I told you about this amazing cash back App called Ibotta!  It was just a few days before Amazon Prime Day, and they were offering some pretty great cash back offers from Amazon!

Today, it is all about my favorite cash-back App, Ebates!  Ebates was the first App I joined, to start earning cash-back and things I was buying anyway!

Ebates is a free App, that has over TWO THOUSAND stores you can shop at, (online and in-store) and earn cash back!  I’ve already earned cash back on plane tickets back to visit my friends, Ulta beauty purchases, and all my Amazon goodies!  If you think the rewards stop there, then you need to keep scrolling!

First things first, to get the cash back, you need to check into your Ebates App to see what’s being offered at the store you want to shop at.  If you are shopping online, you will want to click “shop now,” and the App will automatically take you to the online store, and keep track of your purchases.  That’s it!  The cash back will be in your account in a few days!  (Or even a few hours!) For trips made to the store, just check the App, link the card you will be using, and you are good to go!

I am home a lot with my daughters, and I am usually blogging on my laptop (like now, for instance).  That means, sometimes it is more convenient to just shop on my computer.  You can log into Ebates right onto your computer!  Ebates installed it’s little logo right at the top of my computer, and it lights up when  I go to one of it’s qualified stores, and asks me if I want to activate the cash back.  Just click yes!  After that, Ebates does the hard work for you.  When you are done shopping, Ebates has already loaded all the applicable coupons for the site you are on, saving you even more money!  Yup, not only are you getting cash back, but Ebates is always finding you coupons you may not have even known were available!

Okay, so let’s talk a little bit about the cons.  Do you see the cash back offers on the stores listed up above?  They change.  Sometimes you are going to get an e-mail about a super cash back day, and find that the places you love to shop are all offering 10 percent (or more)!  Unfortunately, there are going to be days when you only see a 1% return on your money.

On stores like Amazon, they limit the cash back to certain items, but those items do consistently change.   The other downside is, Ebates only pays you quarterly, so don’t plan on having your cash back immediately available to you.  I kind of like that my money builds over time.  I already have a good chunk of change pending in my account, ready to be paid to me next month!

Back to the Pros: There are two different ways you can choose to get paid!  As you can see in the photo below, you can choose to have a check mailed to you, or it can sent right to you via Paypal.  I like to receive a check in the mail.  It’s a nice change of pace when I find a check, instead of a bill.

Interested in signing up, and getting cash back?  If you use my referral link, you will get $10 automatically added to your account (after you make your first qaulifying purchase of $25 or more).  After that, you just go to Ebates before you shop, and Ebates will hook you up with coupons and cash back!
