I wish I’d paid attention to the ads for Ebates some time ago, because they are 100% legit. Create an account, click on STORES in the navigation bar up top of the page, pick the store you’re wanting to make a purchase at and it creates a purchase ticket. Shop at the store and pay for your purchases, and you’ll get no less than 1% CASH BACK. Ebates puts it into your PayPal account and you can spend it however you wish!
For Christmas I purchased a 32″ Smart Led TV for my roommate. Green Monday at Tiger Direct had the $279.99 TV with a $90 instant savings and free shipping. And if I used Visa checkout, I would get another $20 off of the purchase price. So I go to checkout and total price is now $169.99 and since I went to Ebates first and then to TigerDirect.com I’ll get a 2% rebate of $3.40. It also had a $30 rebate available, saving me even more! I figure when all was said and done, the 32″ $279.99 Smart TV cost me $136.50. And I didn’t have to stand in any lines to get it! $3.40 may not sound like much, but trust me, it adds up! And there are always Ebates deals at different stores offering 10%, 25% and more.
I have been buying stuff on Ebay, Amazon, Walmart, Target and Tiger Direct, just to name a few, for years and could of gotten hundreds of dollars back by now! Tip: Even if the store is just a few blocks away, check the online store first before pulling out the credit card! Items are often cheaper via online shopping! Case in point: a $900 50″ 4k Ultra HD Smart TV at Walmart that a friend was looking at just last week was $150 cheaper by purchasing it online. We went to Ebates, then clicked for Walmart, made the purchase and it was ready for pickup within 2 hours. With an additional savings of $10.50 in tax plus the $7.90 back from Ebates, she saved $168 dollars and some change …she couldn’t of been happier! I can’t wait to watch the Super Bowl on it!
And it’s not just the big name stores at Ebates! Check for those little known online shops at Ebates before making your purchase. I was delighted to find Restaurant.com (that was another whole batch of savings in gift certificates for relatives at Christmas) and my vitamin supplement store.
So the next time you’re planning a purchase online, be sure to grab that extra bit of savings by going to Ebates first!
