I had heard people mention ebates in various blogs and forums but didn’t really look into it until recently. I have no idea why it took me so long- it’s so easy.
For starters- you can earn $75 for referring 3 friends (hint hint- here’s my link… http://www.ebates.com/rf.do?referrerid=APvrr1XTclRtzrZ6SVB1lw%3D%3D%26eeid=26471)
$20 for your first referral, $25 for your second, and $30 for the third
After that you get $5 per person
Stick with me- you don’t have to go around talking about it and “selling” it in order to make money.
Similar to Swagbucks- you earn money back by shopping through their website.
So for example, I found some new shoes from NewBalance.com that I am planning on purchasing- so I go to ebates.com, type in New Balance and see that they are offering 10% back on any purchase- so I click shop now and am redirected to the New Balance website. As long as you complete the order from that window- you will get 10% back in the form of a check from ebates.com. It’s literally that easy.
They mail the checks every 3 months as long as you have earned at least $5.01. If you haven’t earned enough, it just carries over until you earn over $5.
You can also choose to have the cash sent to a paypal account or donate it to a charity.
