I've Made $272.24 via Ebates

Ebates is an easy way to get some money back when you shop online.   I've been using them since 2008 and so far I've made  $272.24 from them.  

Here's my current report :

Now, $272.24 over 4 years is not a ton of money.   But its simple and easy to earn so as far as bang for the buck, its a pretty good deal.   For me most of the money I've made from rebates has been via online travel reservations.   When I book a hotel or flight I go through Ebates and typically earn 3-4% or so cash back.  So if I spend $300 on a hotel room I can stand to get ~$9 cash back.

To get the cash back you need to be signed up with Ebates.  Then simply go to Ebates to get the referral to the the store before you do your shopping.  I also get a referral bonus if you use my links to sign up with Ebates.

  1. $274 seems like meager compensation for adding a mental step to every single online purchase...

  2. SteveD, I don't do it with every purchase, but I try to remember when I'm buying something more that will generate $1 or more. It takes about 15 seconds to go to Ebates then go to a site through them. Thats worth $1 or more to me. They do also have an Ebates toolbar that shows you what online stores have rebates and makes it an easy 1 click process. I don't use the toolbar as I prefer not to clog up my browser with 3rd party toolbars.
