Why I'm so glad I learned about this cash back hack

Ebates pays you to shop on Amazon, Sephora, Macy's, and thousands of your favorite stores!

My sister-in-law and I spend post-family dinners shopping on our phones in search of the best deals on luxury handbags, new sneakers, gifts for friends, and stuff for our homes. During one meal at my in-laws' last year, she told me about Ebates. Apparently, the girl was making tons of money shopping online, and now I do too! We're getting paid to shop for everyday items, clothing, travel booking, you name it.

How does it work? It's simple. Stores pay Ebates to do their thing, and then Ebates applies the best deals available at checkout, and pays you directly as you shop. It's that easy. Ebates features over 2,500 stores, including Amazon, Expedia, Kohl's, and Sephora!

The process is totally seamless. Ebates alerts you as soon as you touch the site you were already shopping on with their handy browser toolbar button. When you click the button, Ebates applies the best deals at checkout and gives you cash back directly into your PayPal account or by check (your preference).

Opening the hood on my Ebates account, here's a look at my recent cash back savings for back-to-school clothing I bought for my niece:

We strongly recommend you give it a try because you can make a bundle just by shopping for everyday items with Ebates. It's free to join, and Ebates will give you a $10 welcome bonus here for a limited-time!
