Ummm, did you know that there’s a free way you can earn cash back (up to 40%) when you shop online?! Yes! How? This oldie, but GOODIE….


Ebates Coupons and Cash Back


THIS is why I now do most of my shopping online.  I’ve rediscovered Ebates. I signed-up for Ebates well over a year ago, but didn’t start consistently using it until a couple of months ago.


Here are my results:

In a little over a month, I’ve earned $31.13 IN CASH, by buying what I was already going to buy online:

– Web Services from GoDaddy

– A book from Amazon

– A copy order for my business from Staples

– A gift for a friend from Harry & David

– My Birthday Vacation from Groupon. (Libras in the house! Woot Woot!)


With these purchases, I remembered to go to Ebates first. I actually got a refund on my birthday trip and repurchased it again via Groupon’s link on Ebates, just so I could earn my cash back. I’m so Budgetnista. Lol!


Here’s how Ebates works:

Step 1: Sign-up for a free account here: http://thebudgetnistablog.com/ebates.

Step 2: Click the JOIN NOW button on the top of the page.

Step 3: They’ll ask you if someone referred you… umm yeah! Me. The Budgetnista. Tee Hee hee. Here’s the email addy they’re asking for TheBudgetnista@gmail.com (make sure to spell The Budgetnista right)

Step 4: That’s it! Now you’re ready to earn up to 40% cash back on your online purchases.

Wait, don’t be like me…. I had Ebates for a FULL YEAR and forgot to take advantage of it. Put a sticky note on your computer that says, Remember to use Ebates. 

And every.single.time you shop online, go to Ebates before you buy, look for the store you’re buying from, click on the store’s logo, make your purchase and earn your cash back. It’s just that simple.


Here’s how….

Add the Cash Back Button to your toolbar. It’s FREE!

2) Via paypal

Look what Ebates actually sent me today when I logged in….

Woot Woot! I opted to get my money via Paypal. I’m going to put in my Money Bucket (my online only, savings account), since I’ve already set aside my holiday gift-giving budget. What will you do with your cash back?

Are YOU ready to earn cash back on things you were going to buy anyway online? It’s a win.win.win.

My Lisa Rule: I have 4 sisters and Lisa is the baby (we’ll she’s not a baby anymore). Of all of my sisters I’m the most protective over her. Before I share any product or service with you, it must pass my Lisa Rule.

What’s the Lisa Rule? If I would not advise Lisa to use a product or service, I won’t advise you to. YOU are my Lisas. I feel protective over you and your financial journey.

Ebates passes my Lisa Rule. Yes, I am an affiliate of Ebates, and I earn a commission off of referrals, but I would not recommend a product or service that I didn’t believe was helpful and useful.

    I absolutely loveeeeee E-bates. So far I receive $91+ in cash back.
    When I first started to use it, I could never remember to login through e-bates then go to my store through e-bates. But they later released the e-buttion. You can download and regularly go to your store and then the e-bates button flashes red to let you know you could be earning money and green to show it is active.

    1) I got $35 cashback for buying my contacts and $glasses (America’s Best)
    2) Hotel stays! With Holiday Inn I got back $10 collectively from a few stores
    3) Like regular price point airline tickets through regular airline websites. Then go to e-bates through Hotwire, Priceline, etc. to get cashback that way and the price is still the same. (Doesn’t always apply but worth the effort!)

    • Yes! A woman after my own heart Bianca! I loooove Ebates too.

      Happy savings. 🙂

    I love Ebates as well. I’ve too have received $100-plus on shopping through Ebates. I love that you can add their icon to your Chrome browser so you don’t forget to use them with shopping.
