My friend told me about ebates last week and it is seriously the best thing that I've heard about in a long time! It's really simple.  You get paid via cash back every quarter for shopping online at the sites you normally would already shop at.  Sounds too good to be true right? But it's not! Here is a CNET review.


1. First sign up - preferably click here to use my referral link :)
2. Once you are on the site, click on "shop all stores" so you can see what's available. Then, click on the gray heart next to whichever stores you want to favorite.  You can only favorite 50 stores... and let's just say I ran out of favories on letter S! So I had to go back and re-evaluate my selections. 
3. Before you shop online, go to first. Then, click on the store name to be transferred directly to the site. Apparently ebates gets some type of commission for sending you to their site and they are paying some of that commision back to you in the form of a % of cash back.
4. I spent $88 at a store that was offering 20% cash back! So I am scheduled to get almost $18. Score, right? FYI - most cash back rates are smaller - like 2 - 6%. But this is great for Christmas shopping! 

Can you see how excited I am? The possibilites are endless!

Some of my favorite stores on ebates: Apple, Banana Republic, Jcrew, Sephora, CB2. 

Have you signed up yet? If not, what are you waiting for?! Happy Shopping!


  1. Thanks Kimmers! I'll def be doing this! -Emilee

  2. Hi Kimberly, Earning cash back on store purchases online is a great way to add up the savings. I'm at $36 saved in last 30 days, averaging about 11% cash back.

    Just so you are aware, you can also take advantage of high cash back rates at They typically have the highest cash back rates since they pass 75% of the commissions they receive directly back to us.

    Thanks for the post, will hopefully help alot of us over the holidays :)
