I’m reposting one of my first posts on my blog because 1) I love Ebates; 2) I want everyone else to love Ebates; and 3) it’s my blog. Nanernaner.

I just received another big fat check from my friends at Ebates.  So here’s the repost:

One of my favorite online sites is Ebates. Anytime you want to make an online purchase, go to ebates.com first, search the store you want for your purchase, and then click on “shop now”, once you find your store. Ebates lists the percentage of your purchase that will be credited to your account. Every quarter they send you a “BIG FAT CHECK” for your purchase percentages. I know it sounds confusing but trust me! I have been a member of ebates since 2009 and in two years have received almost $300 in BIG FAT CHECKS! Now really! That is just free money. When I first heard about it from friends, and researched it, I found an article that stated “if you shop online and do not go through Ebates first you are an idiot”. When you first sign up you automatically get $5 placed in your account. And when you refer friends, they get $5 when they sign up and you get $5.  According to Ebates’ own website here is the story:

Ebates is the pioneer and leader of online Cash Back Shopping. The company was founded in 1998 by two Deputy District Attorneys in Silicon Valley who used to prosecute online fraud & identity theft before starting Ebates (so you can be sure we are very into secure online transactions!). So go ahead, sign up and start shopping now. Joining Ebates is always free – you’ll never pay us anything. And four times a year or more, we’ll mail you a Big Fat Check, or transfer the money to your PayPal account if you’d prefer. We can even send the money to your favorite charity. All 100% free.

People often ask: “This sounds too good to be true, how are you able to do it?” It really is quite simple. Just like almost every other online shopping center, we get a commission from the stores when you make a purchase. Instead of keeping that money – like almost all other sites do – we share it with you!

So, as long as 1200+ of the world’s top online stores are happy to pay a bonus to attract the new, valuable customers we send their way, Ebates is going to continue to send Big Fat Checks to our satisfied customers across the globe.

 I hope you are already a member of Ebates, but if not please join up today! You will be thanking me after all your online Christmas purchases!
