Review: Ebates.com – Where It Pays To Shop Online

I hope everyone enjoyed their Thanksgiving, I’m still stuffed! Lol. Since today is Black Friday and Cyber Monday is upon us, I thought this post would be appropriate. I am a HUGE online shopper. While I love shopping, I do not like shopping in stores. I don’t like crowds or hustle and bustle so as you can imagine I enjoy sales from the comfort of my home. One website I love for online shopping is Ebates.com because I earn money for purchases I would have made anyway so it’s the best of both worlds.

What Is Ebates.com? Ebates pays members cash back every time they shop online as well as provides them with the best coupons and deals online.  It was founded in 1998 and Ebates has paid over $85,000,000 in cash to its members. Over 12 million people have joined Ebates.

Who Can Use Ebates.com? Anyone shopping online can visit retailers directly through Ebates.com to shop and receive cash back.

Where Can You Earn Ebates.com Cash Back? Through any of the Ebates.com 1,200 online stores.

Why Use Ebates.com? I have been using Ebates.com since 2009 and received multiple payments from the site. I prefer to shop online whenever possible because I like the convenience and there are way more specials online. With Ebates not only is it convenient but it’s economical.
