I signed up for Ebates cash back almost 2 years ago when I first started blogging after reading that it was a great way to make money for spending money you would already spend. I made just 1 purchase with it from Finish Line but didn’t really shop anywhere else with deals. At that point, I didn’t see the benefits but now that I’m a future mommy I will be using this all the time!
I’m going to break it down for you on how you can make and save money in 3 ways with Ebates cash back. If you want to make money as a mommy where you shop, keep reading to see how you can maximize your earnings.
Ebates Cash Back
First, let me start by saying I just found even more exciting news as I write this article. I did not know that you could shop in store and still get rewards! This is an amazing revelation.
With the Ebates program you can earn money on online and (fresh off the press) in store purchases. You can stock your cart before you activate (if you have a store account) or after you follow the activation link directly from the Ebates website, then do your shopping.
The website will show you which stores have the best offers like double cash back. Downloading the extension for your browser will also let you know when and where cash back can be earned along with other offers the site may have.
To sign up for Ebates and receive $10 after making your first purchase, follow my link.
Credit Card Cash Back
How it Works
Link you your Visa credit card to your Ebates account and use it as you normally would in store. If you have a different card type, use it online and take advantage of any deals offered by the credit card company to maximize cash back potential.
How to Combine
I personally have a discover card. The rewards used to be sweeter but I still take the 1% that’s offered. If you also have a Discover card, you can look at the Discover Deals page. On this page, it will show you everywhere you can either receive a discount or places that pay more than 1% cash back. It will give you a link to follow and you’ll automatically get your incentives or there may be a code for you to enter.
This is where having the extension installed in your browser really helps out. If you follow the Discover deals link, you will be taken to the website where you can shop and redeem. By having the extension you can also press activate next to the address bar.
After both are activated just checkout and boom! You’ve just earned cash back in both places.
You can use this card in the same way, except I don’t believe they have “deals”. However, the card can still earn cash back points. This card is especially helpful for in store deals if your card is a Visa. They do not need to be notified to receive the Ebates cash back because it is already linked to your card.
Store Rewards Programs
Save Where You Work
This is a no brainer! If you work in retail or doing something else for a retail company, you likely get a discount. Well what if on top of that discount you could also earn some money? For me, this doesn’t apply in store because we have to pay with a company issued card. However, I can still shop online with that card, get my company discount, and earn cash back.
If you get your discount no matter how you pay this is even better. You can pay with a visa card that you link to your Ebates account and BAM you’ve earned and saved!
