Ebates: Sign Up For Free Cash Back

It's a special week at Ebates, In honor of Ebates' 12th birthday, you can get 12% cash back at a bunch of merchants. If you are new to Ebates, this is how it works. On-line stores compete for customers. They are happy to pay Ebates for sending them business. Ebates gives some of that money back to you, the
shopper. It's free to sign up. The only thing you have to remember is to go through Ebates to get to on-line merchants. Ebates will track that purchase and give you a percentage back in cash. Sometimes that percentage is as much as 51% of the sale.  For example, right now you can get 24% cash back on an Entertainment book. Ebates is a no-brainer if you shop on-line.

My experience with Ebates has been all positive. When I traveled to California last month, I booked my hotel through Ebates (got $8.33 in my account) and my car rental through Ebates (got $2.98 in my account) A few weeks ago, I renewed All You through Ebates (got $10.18 in my account). So that's $21.49
for things I would do anyway. It's free money so I'm happy to take it. Checks are sent out every 3 months.

When you sign up for Ebates, you get a choice of bonuses. Most people take the $5 cash in their Ebates account, but there are also $10 gift cards to choose from.

Here's how to use
1) Sign up for a free account at
2) When you are going to shop on-line, go to Ebates and log in.
3) Click on "Shop All Stores" in the upper left.
4) Scroll down to the merchant. Click on the orange button that says "Shop Now".
5) Follow the link and shop as you normally would.
6) Check back at
Ebates in a week or two. It can take up to 30 days for the cash back to show up in your account. To find it, click on "My Ebates" in the green bar near the top of the page.
7) Look in the right column for "Cash Pending" and click.
8) You'll see a summary of your purchases and how much you have coming.
9) Enjoy your check.

    Become a Mystery Shopper For Extra Cash

    Become a mystery shopper by signing up with
    Shadow Shopper

    You can also go to to find lots of free mystery shopper information and contacts.

    My take on this
    : I don't think it's realistic to expect $150 a week from mystery shopping, but it is a way to pick up some extra cash. Many RC readers over the years have done mystery shopping on the side, and some have taken it to the next level and become supervisors. If you like to shop, and are willing to write a report about your experience, this is a fun and legitimate way to make some extra money.
