Shop Black Friday & Holiday Sales + Get Cash Back!

ebates-black fridayTis the season for Black Friday, Cyber Monday and tons of holiday sales, so why not get cash back while you shop? I discovered Ebates a little over a year ago, and it has totally changed how I shop because I now earn cash back on almost everything I buy!  Here’s how it works:

  1. Sign up {here} – it’s FREE!
  2. Look up your favorite stores on Ebates (there are over 1,700!).
  3. Start shopping!  Ebates will tell you the percentage of cash back you will receive from your purchase based on the store.
  4. You will receive a “big fat check” every three months.
  5. Receive a “tell-a-friend” bonus (more cash back!) for sharing Ebates with your friends!

The weekly emails from Ebates summarize which stores are having sales, online coupons and double cash.  You can even save your favorite stores so your updates are personalized. Now is the perfect time to sign up and take advantage of all the great deals!  Check out the double cash back offers happening at some of my favorite stores.


If you’re buying anything online, check Ebates first so you can make money while spending money.  You’ll thank me after you receive your first check!

Note:  This is not a paid advertisement.  I am a loyal Ebates customer.  I will receive a referral bonus once you sign up through my link and make your first purchase.
