REFERRAL PROGRAMS: ONLINE REBATE SITES
Online rebate sites are sites that will pay you cash back for shopping online. Never, ever make a purchase online without checking one of these sites first. They will pay you a percentage back on your total purchase and have several coupon codes available to use. You must set up a free account before being able to use any of these sites, but it’s quick and you are under no obligation to purchase anything.
ShopAtHome is a great example of a cash-back site. It’s super easy to set up an account and you will get a $5 bonus just for signing up! In order to receive your cash back, you must first visit ShopAtHome, search for the store you want to shop at and click through to the website you want. Your cash back will post to your account in a few days and your rebate check will be sent to you when your account reaches $20!
Ebates is very similar to ShopAtHome. Sign up for a free account and receive a $5 sign-up bonus. Search for the website you want to shop at by logging into your account and clicking through to the website. Make a purchase and your cash back will post to your account within a few days. Some sites it can take up to 30 days, depending on their policy so don’t panic if your cash doesn’t credit right away. They have an awesome customer service, so if you think you are missing any cash back, just contact them. You will receive a check when your account total reaches $5 (not including sign-up bonus).
I always check both sites before I shop. Generally one site will be at least 1% or 2% higher than the other.

Bing.com offers a cash back site as well. Sign up for an account here. I have never personally used this site, so I can’t give you any feedback on this one.
Once you sign up for your account at either ShopAtHome or Ebates, start telling your friends. You can send e-mails or a personalized referral link. You can also grab a banner to post to your Facebook page or blog. For every referral you receive, you will get an additional $5 bonus plus your friend will receive a $5 sign-up bonus. Everybody wins!
If you have any sites that you like to use or prefer one of these over another, please leave a comment and let us know why!
