Get Some of that Money Back in your Pocket
Being a blogger (especially if you’re new) is definitely an investment. Yes, I get SOME complimentary items but I do still have to spend my own money at this point (one day, ya’ll, one day…). Like many, I’m not made out of money and I am always on the hunt for great deals. Wouldn’t it be super nice to get money back for those coins you spent your hard-earned money on? Fret no more, my loves because I’ve been introduced to a program that rewards me for shopping and I’m here to share!
What is this Sorcery?
You’ve seen the commercials for this service before, and it’s called Ebates. They have a HUGE list of stores that you probably already love to shop from. You earn a percentage back of the amount you spent, and every three months, you get a check if your redemption amount is more than 5 dollars.
For example, let’s say you wanted some fab new shoes from Aldo. On Ebates, the percentage that Aldo gives back is 7 percent. Now, let’s say you spent $150 (because that’s VERY easy to do at Aldo). You would earn $10.50 back from that purchase. It’s like you got a discount on the shoes as cash! Think about all of the purchases you make within a three month period–it seriously adds up! You can use Ebates for online shopping, in-store shopping, and even TRAVELS! It’s totally effortless.

Click this link to easily sign up and get an automatic $10 credit when you spend $25 or more. I recommend that you use a desktop or laptop for signing on. Once you’re in, here is what I recommend you do first:
- Install the Cash Back Button Plugin: this is important because if you’re on a website that Ebates partners with, you can activate your cash back VERY easily. Go here to click on your respective browser and install the plugin. Here’s a screenshot of what it looks like after you installed the plugin and shop on an Ebates’ partner site–
- The second thing I think you should do is go to your account and update your mailing address so that you receive your money to the correct place. All you do is hover over your “Name” on the top right-hand corner, and click “My Account.” Then, click “Account Settings” on the left-hand side. You’ll be given the option to update your address there. Click “Update” when you’re done and you’re all set!
- Third, you should tie a credit card or debit card to your account. Under “My Account” click “Wallet” on the left-hand side and add a debit or credit card. This will allow you to get your rebates for in-store purchases
- Finally, download the Ebates mobile app. You can tap on the In-Store tab and browse through cash-back options near you. If you like to shop from your phone (even if you aren’t in-store) this app enables you to activate your rebates right from your phone if you’re shopping from your device

I promise ya’ll that this is VERY easy. Earn money when you shop because you work hard for these things!
