Online shopping is a HUGE part of how I save money. I never shop anywhere online without first going through a cash-back site and the only site I use now is Ebates.
All you do is head to Ebates first, search for the site you are going to be shopping at and click through to that site. Ebates automatically creates a tracking number associated with your account and you will receive a percent cash back on your purchase. If you are going to be shopping online anyway, there is no reason you shouldn’t be using a great site like Ebates.
The reason they are the only site I use is because they have a huge selection of sites, high percentage cash back (and very competitive with other sites), great tracking and communication and amazing customer service. My cash back generally posts very quickly and my cash-back checks have always arrived right on time.
Currently, for Cyber Monday 2, they are offering double cash back at a HUGE range of stores. As I type this, they are giving 20% cash back at Under Armour (unheard of!), 10% cash back at Sears, 20% cash back at Snapfish and much, much more. Click here to check out all the different stores that are participating.
Ebates has VERY generously offered one lucky TBFL reader $100 cash to help supplement their holiday shopping! If you win, Ebates will deposit $100 into your Ebates account. This means you won’t receive it before the holidays, but with your quarterly Ebates check. Either way, $100 is pretty boss, when ever you receive it.
