Get Cash Back When Shopping Online
|May 31, 2011||Filled under Savings Joy|
If you do any shopping online, a great way to save some money is by shopping through cash back sites. When you go through these sites, you get a certain percentage of your purchase back in cash! They also list coupon codes for you use to save even more money on your online purchase.
My favorite sites to use are Ebates, Mr. Rebates, and Shop at Home because they are so easy to use and they have almost any online store you can think of. If you don’t already have an account with these sites, you’ll get $5 just for signing up. You’ll also get money just for referring your friends through your account. Once you’re ready to do some online shopping, all you have to do is enter the name of the store into the search box of the cash back site, and follow the links to the site of the online store you wish to shop at. After you checkout, you’ll see the money in your account of the cash back site. Each site sends the money out at different times, but once you’re eligible to receive the money in your account, they’ll send the check right to you.
I have an account with each of the 3 cash back sites, Ebates, Mr. Rebates, and Shop at Home, but to find the best deal, I search for the online store at each site, so I can shop through the one that offers the highest percentage cash back on my purchase. I will also do this when I post an online deal for you if it is available through these sites.
I typically find that Mr. Rebates and Shop at Home offer the most cash back, but Ebates does have double or triple cash back events every once in awhile. Shop at Home will also offer larger amounts in cash back at times, and they even have grocery coupons available. To get the most of your money, I recommend that you sign up for all 3 if you can.
