If you shop online, you should consider setting up an account with Ebates. Ebates is an online shopping site that offers up to 26% cash back when you shop online. Ebates has partnered with more than 1,200 stores, including Macy's, Overstock, Wal-mart, Gap/Old Navy/Banana Republic, and eBay, to give you cash rebates for shopping online. Ebates is also an excellent source for reliable Internet coupons, free shipping offers, and limited-time sales. If you sign up now, you will receive a $5 bonus when you make your first purchase.
To earn cash back, simply visit Ebates and click on their link for an online retailer rather than typing the retailer's URL in your browser's address bar. When you make a purchase through Ebates, they earn a commission, which they pass on to the consumer. Four times a year, they will send you a check or transfer your earnings to your Paypal account. Or, you can donate those earnings to a charity.
Why not get cash back for purchases that you would make anyway?
