Doesn’t it seem like great deals are always popping up all over the internet? It’s almost like we don’t need to shop at brick and mortar stores….but not quite. Make sure you are getting the most out of your online purchases by getting cash back. That’s right! Several sites offer cash back bonuses when you shop through them. I just received my quarterly check from Ebates today. It was only $5.46 this quarter which means I didn’t shop online a bunch during the past three months, but when I did, it added up.
When shopping online retailers often offer a small percentage of money to the site that referred you. When you go through a cash back site you get money back in your pocket. It takes a few strokes of the keyboard to line your pocket with a little extra money. Ebates is my favorite cash back site. I have cashed in hundreds of dollars using Ebates since 2009. I have saved my friends quite a bit of money by telling them to use a cash back site like Ebates too!
