There are so many great ways to save money when shopping online. One of the best ways to do so is through cash back websites like Ebates.com.

Ebates works as a search engine much like Yahoo! or Google. Simply search for the store you are shopping at to see if they offer any Ebates deals. Most purchases made through Ebates result in a cash back reward to the shopper. The money will accrue in an Ebates account until a maximum of $5.01 is reached. That money will then be mailed as a check or transferred to a Paypal account to the consumer at least four times a year.

Members can earn up to 25% cash back on their online purchases without having to pay a membership fee, mail in forms, or redeem points. Ebates charges nothing for their service. Instead the retailer from one of more than 1,500 of their partner stores pays a commission to Ebates when shoppers make a purchase.

A $10.00 gift card is offered to new members of the site. The card is then shipped after the first $25.00 in cash back is rewarded to the shopper. By referring family and friends they will receive even more cash back on their future purchases!

Make sure to always check through Ebates when shopping online to get credit. Click here to start using Ebates today!
