Ebates: Where it Pays to Shop Online

Thursday, November 29th, 2012

With Christmas quickly approaching, there are a limited number of days to finish off that Holiday shopping. While I love to stroll through a beautifully decorated Mall, the truth is that sometimes the noise, crowds, and stress make the Malls the place not to be. There are so many reasons I prefer to do the bulk of my Christmas shopping online! Here are my five top tips for online shopping:

  1. Take advantage of Free shipping offers to purchase gifts for family members that live out of state. Have the gift wrapped and shipped directly to their home. This saves you time and money.
  2. Read your favorite blogs daily to keep up on all the latest offers.
  3. Use a cash back site like Ebates, where you can get a percentage of every dollar that you spend back in the form of cash.
  4. Use a price comparison site like PriceGrabber.com to make sure you are paying the lowest price possible. This is especially important for big ticket items like TVs and other electronics.
  5. Save up your Swagbucks throughout the year. Trade them in for gift cards for your favorite online retailers.

Whats on your wish list this year? Here’s a rundown of our family’s lists:

Mom – Slippers, Cutting Board, Silver Earrings, Battery Operated Gloves
Dad – Music CDs, Movies, mp3 Player, Clothes
DS 15 – Vintage Super Nintendo Game System, Vintage Nintedo Games, Books, Board Games
DD 13 – Music CDs, Fashion Design Templates, Debit Card for Clothes Shopping, Books
DD 10 – Motorized Scooter, RC Helicopter, DS Games, mp3 Player
DS 7 – Skylanders Giants, Lego Ninjago, Wii Games, Books
DS 4 – Skylanders Giants, Lego Ninjago, Thomas the Tank Engine Toys, Angry Birds

Looks like everything on our lists can be purchased online, and all through retailers that offer Free shipping (at one time or another).

Let’s spend a few minutes talking about Ebates, a cash back site that helps you save even more. Ebates customers receive 1%-50% Cash Back on their purchases at thousands of different stores.

Signing up is easy! Just head on over to the Ebates page and select your sign up bonus. You can choose from the following $10 gift cards: Macy’s, Walmart, Target, Kohl’s, or select a $5 Ebates gift card. The gift carf will be automatically snail-mailed to the address you provide once you have spent at least $25 through the Ebates site. After you select your reward, enter your email, create a password, and you’re all set!

For future online shopping, head on over to Ebates first if you would like the cash back. Then enter the retailer at which you’d like to shop in the Ebates search window.

The next page will list your store and show an orange “Shop Now” button. Click on this and a window will open that looks like this:

The window will show for a few seconds to let you know the tracking id has been successfully established. Then a regular online store front will appear and you can continue to shop as usual. Your online purchase totals will be tracked by Ebates and any cash back that is coming your way will be credited within 2-3 days. What a great way to save even more when shopping online, whether it be for Christmas (during Black Friday or even Cyber Monday), or any other occasion! As you shop, Cash Back accumulates in your account, and then every few months, Ebates will send you a Big Fat Check (or transfer funds via Paypal).
