Hello…my name is Tracy and I am a SHOPAHOLIC! Yep… I’ve been one for years and I have NO intention of getting any help. Shopping is basically my cardio and I love it! I like grocery shopping, shoe shopping, buying makeup..toys..buttons. You name it, and I’ll go out & claim it! However, after over 20 years of working in the wholesale business, I have vowed to NEVER pay “full” price for anything. I’m not a haggler, but I still can’t bring myself to purchase anything without a coupon or promo code. So, because of this I have become even more determined to find the very best deals and to perfect my game as a master bargain hunter. Honestly, if you’re an online shopper you’ll find that there are a ton of of sites out there that offer you amazing savings, rewards and discounts…and one such golden nugget is Ebates.com.
Ebates.com is a company that allows you to earn cash back when you shop through their portal. Basically they’re an affiliate organization that makes a small commission for referring people to other businesses. Ebates will then give you a portion of that commission just for clicking thru the links of the stores listed on their site to make your purchase. That’s it in a nutshell! It’s not a scam. It’s actually a legitimate way to save a few $$$ on a few items, and to put some money back into your pockets at the same time!
To get started, you must create an account on their site (so you can get paid, of course!), and proceed to get busy shopping. Ebates has partnered with over 1,800 merchant stores, so I have no doubt that you’ll find a few of your favorite shops up on the Ebates band wagon as well. Now the key to increasing your coins is to actually remember to shop using their site..so, I’ve added the Ebates extension to my browser (it’s free) to insure that I don’t miss out on my coins. When I hit up a store affiliated with Ebates, a banner will automatically pop up at the top of the screen prompting me to “Activate Cash Back” savings. Hello…now we’re talking!
Ebates.com will also allow you to layer coupons and exclusive offers, and you can get paid via check or Paypal. The payments are sent to you every 3 months once you’ve reached the $5.01 minimum in purchase rewards in your account. That’s seriously all that there is to it!
I happen to be a huge fan of online shopping. So, I started using Ebates on a whim just to see what all the hype was about, and I’ve been watching the funds in my account stack up ever since. Now as you can tell, I certainly won’t be quitting my day job anytime soon because of these additional coins. However, it’s always nice to get a little extra bang for your buck…especially one earned by simply clicking a button. Anyway, don’t be shy..head on over to Ebates.com and check them out to score a few extra coins for yourself. Since sharing is caring, you can click the link to let’em know that your favorite Nautie girl sent you, and we can both stack a few extra chips! It honestly doesn’t make sense to pass up such a good opportunity. It’s free, you’re obviously shopping anyway, and you’re earning a few bucks for doing it! Now go forth and claim your coins!
