I love Ebates!
My Ebates strategy, is really freakin’ simple and if you would like to earn a few extra bucks on the side then using it would be perfect for you.
How I Make Money with Ebates
Affiliate links included. Full disclosure here.
In case you are wondering, Ebates is an amazing cash-back site that gives you money when you shop through one of their partner retailers.
Since, I’ve been a member with Ebates I’ve been able to make over $500 in a short span of 5 months. During that time period I’ve also been awarded a $60 and $100 bonus.
It may not be much for many, but the $500 I have earned using Ebates does help a little around my household such as buying pampers for the little one and being able to go on a date night or two with the hubby.
So, if you want to know what this strategy entails, then keep reading.
1. You will get $10 just for signing up.
Ebates is dishing out money like crazy right now and honestly no one knows how long that will last. So just for signing up with Ebates, which is totally free, you’ll earn a $10 bonus when you make a minimum $25 purchase.
So if you spend $25 with one of their retailers, you will have actually spent $15 as they will credit your account $10 (plus any cash-back that you receive)
Oh, by the way, the cashback you earn can be redeemed as a Big Fat Check which they’ll deposit right into your bank account within a couple of weeks.
2. Stay ahead of deals.
I frequently receive emails from Ebates when they are having really good deals. If I find a store that I was planning to make a purchase from, such as Nike, I would simply shop through their website and earn my cash back.
To double my savings, I would opt to use one of my cash-back credit cards to finish the purchase as that is a win-win deal for everyone.
3. Its all in the referrals.
Have you heard the phrase, “It’s not what you know, it’s who you know”. Well the same case applies here.
At the moment, Ebates will give you a $5 base bonus for every friend that you refer to their website that makes at least a $25 purchase with one of their retailers.
Ebates has over 600 retailers to include Walmart and Amazon so finding a store to shop at would be no problem!
All that you need to do is find a few friends that enjoys shopping online and share your referral link with them.
Pretty easy right?
4. There are tiered-bonuses!
Ebates’ tiered bonuses are amazing! And if you if want to cash in on these then you need to hurry because the promotional period ends on December 31, 2017.
Nevertheless, when you refer a certain amount of people, Ebates will give you an additional bonus on top of the base referral of $5. Below you can see the chart.
As I have mentioned previously, I have earned a $60 and $100 bonus just for referring a few friends. How cool is that?
So, if you can at least think of 10 friends that are willing to shop through Ebates, you will have earned $150 just like that! No sweat, no tears and honestly no effort.
If you have a Facebook account, sharing your referral code is even easier and can help you earn even more money.
When I find good deals, I share an update on my timeline such as, “Hey, just sharing that I got a 40% percent off coupon for Nike through Ebates. It’s free to sign up and you’ll get $10! Here’s the link“.
Most often, my friends will share my posts with their friends and so on.
I hope this simple strategy helps you earn a few extra dollars this month! For more money-saving tips, you might enjoy: 15 Totally Genius Money Saving Hacks That Will Blow Your Mind
