I'm a huge huge fan of ebates!!!! If you haven't seen what it's all about go HERE!
I've been a member for a long time but I often forgot to use it. However this past year I noticed that the have an ebates button you can install on your browser and it tells you when you go to a site if there are ebates. Prior to this you had to start at ebates and link into the site you wanted to shop at. That never worked for me. I always forgot. Now with it in my face, I rarely forget. . . there are times. . . but I do forget. Once you activate it, you must stay on that site . . . so sometimes since I'm a tab whore I have to pay attention and make sure I checkout on the ebates active tab. Or just reactivate it.
Here's what it looks like when you go to a site that offers ebates:
Right there in my face - 3% back from Kohl's. It changes all the time. I think it was 6% the other day.
Every 3 months they pay you out if you are over $5. Though I think if you choose a hard check mailed to you then they cut it no matter what. I choose to have mine direct deposited to paypal.
I just got my BIG FAT CHECK of $42.54.
Some of it is from referring people. So if you'd like to sign up please use my link. I have $9.66 waiting for next time as this payment cut off on 12/31/14.
I love ebates and haven't had any issues. They have great customer service. If an ebate doesn't get credited you can fill out a form and that has always worked for me. I think I've had to do it twice. This is just an extra click of a button and you get a rebate. So why not? I really look forward to my payment. It doesn't really change how I shop. I don't buy things just for the ebates. I shop online a lot and this is just a bonus. Why not? Go check it out and see if the stores you shop at the most offer ebates. SO many do!
