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 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 (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!

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?

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.
