I shop online a lot. Being disabled it’s hard to get to the stores at times, and being able to just go online, is just much, much easier for me. I also like to save, I mean who doesn’t? I had heard about Ebates and looked at it a few times but never really used it (so wish I had long time ago). It’s a site where you can shop at all the same stores as usual, but you earn cash back. Sounds easy right? Well it really is.
We had already gotten all the basic school supplies like backpack, notebooks etc, so all we really had left were clothes and accessories. With over 2,000 online retailers, the hardest part was selecting which store to buy from. Well, Mya was easy (Nike), but with Fallon it was a little harder as there were so many choices.
The first thing you do is set up an account with Ebates (please use my affiliate link), which takes only a few mins. Just for signing up, you will get $10 cash back (after your first qualifying purchase). Each store is listed right there with what percentage cash back you can earn by shopping.
Right now until August 29th, there are around 50 stores that are offering TRIPPLE cash back. A few of the stores are Carters, Ashfard and Beauty.com. We only needed clothes and shoes, but you can get everything and anything your student needs from bedding, small appliances (dorm rooms), lamps and everything in-between. Shipping isn’t through Ebates, it’s through each store you buy from. So if you shop from more than one, you will check out like normal from each.
One of Mya’s favorite brand is Nike, so we got a great deal on shoes, socks, basketball shorts, and a few pairs of spandex shorts she needed for Volleyball games.
I love Macy’s and they were having a big sale (plus the cash back from Ebates), so I couldn’t resist. I ended up getting a bunch of outfits for Fallon including Frozen and her favorite Minnie Mouse. While I was looking at outfits Fallon found one that she really like and wanted for her picture day. How could I say no?
There are a few ways to use Ebates. One is just always go through their site, add the chrome extension, or use their app. That way you won’t miss any deals. It takes a few days after you order to see your cash back balance. Without even counting my welcome $10, I already have $25+ cash back. You can earn even more by referring. Once you sign up, you will get a referral link. Share that with your friends. Once they buy $25 worth, you will get a referral bonus. The amount can be $10+ depending on the specials they are running right now.
