Ebates…Yes, Its Legit

Most people have heard of Ebates, which is a website offering cash back when you shop online at certain (just about any) store.

When someone first told me, I was sure there had to be a catch, like a fee of some sort.  But, I am a year in and there are no catches. You just get money back–I have gotten $150 in the last year.

All you do is create an account ( if you use this referral link, or enter my email address when it asks who referred you, I get credit), log in before you do your online shopping, and wait for your cash back check to arrive.

Just for signing up and making your first purchase, you get $10. The cash back amount varies by store and by time. On Cyber Monday, for example, it was double the normal cash back amount at most stores.

So for a quick example. Say I want to buy something at Carter’s.  

I log into my Ebates account (or open the app on my phone) and search for Carter’s to find the store.


This tells me that Carter’s offers 3.5% back. Click on the name of the store and you will get this screen:


You click on “Shop Now” and that will activate your cash back and takes you right to the store’s website.


Then you just shop like you normally would.

It’s that easy!  Give it a try (use my link pretty please!) and let me know if you need any help.

Quick Summary

How it works: You get a percentage of cash back for pitches made online. Just log into ebates and access the store of your choice through their app or website.

Bonus: $10 after you use it the first time.

Referral payment: $25 for the first friend, $5 each for subsequent people.

Getting your money: They mail you a check four times a year.
