This site I am about to share with you is an “oldie but a goodie,” eBates! eBates is a simple website that you go to before you plan on making a purchase in a variety of places on the Internet. By a variety, I mean pretty much anywhere! You simply go to eBates, click the link to the website you are about to shop from, the site loads, then you do your shopping as you already planned on. That’s it!
After a few days, or sometimes even instantly, you receive your percentage of cash back from the purchase. Sometimes it’s only 1%, sometimes 2%, and sometimes MUCH more. I often receive 18% from GoDaddy, for example. During the Holiday Season and several times throughout the year eBates offers special “Double Cash Back” and greater deals. If you sign up for the email list when you create your account you will receive updates on special promotions they are running.
Your eBates account balance grows, and four times per year (quarterly) you get paid. You can choose to receive a paper check in the mail, or have your payment deposited into your PayPal balance. This all may sound too good to be true, and I believe it does as well, but let me tell you this…. it isn’t! I’ve done it for years now and can’t imagine not doing it again!
To make things even simpler there is a Google Chrome Extension which you can add to your browser that will enable a little notification to pop up each time you visit a website that offers eBates Cash Back. This makes it easy to earn FREE MONEY those times when you make a random purchase and forget to look at eBates first. I’ve had several times where the notification popped up and I had no idea the website I was about to buy from was included. Sometimes I have made purchases from a site simply because there was cash back. NEVER something I hadn’t already planned on buying anyway. I’m not an idiot, and you reading this blog probably aren’t either!
Besides using GoDaddy often (being an Internet Entrepreneur), a big tip, especially for those who travel often, is to use eBates to book travel through Hotels.com. If you book your stay and use Hotels.com through eBates you can either pay upfront and get your cash back, or, as I often do, book the stay and choose the pay-at-hotel option. After your stay concludes, eBates eventually gets notified and you will STILL receive your cash back! Sometimes this takes longer than other times, but hey, it’s still FREE MONEY!
If you sign up for eBates using my unique referral link there is yet another perk; $10 to start absolutely FREE! You’re probably beginning to think this is an amazing deal, and yep… you’re right! To begin using eBates follow this link: https://www.ebates.com/r/BRENT522?eeid=28187
