Ebates is a proven way to earn cash back on online purchases and a $10.00 gift card for new members.

Here’s a great back-to-school tip this week! Online retailer eBags offers 12% cash back. Combine that with sale items to get deep discounts on top-brand backpacks like Jansport (that include a lifetime warranty).

With over 12 million members and $85,000,000 paid out so far, this service continues to grow in popularity. Use Ebates to save a bundle on back-to-school shopping.

How it works:

  • Ebates is free. Start an account in under a minute with just an email address. No sensitive information required.
  • Search the Ebates partner list of over 1,600 stores. Each store lists a cash back percentage to shoppers. Average cash back is from 4%-12% (and sometimes as high as 25%).
  • Follow the store link you want and shop as normal. Cash back collects in an Ebates account until a minimum total of $5.01 is reached. At least four times a year, Ebates mails a check or transfers those funds into a PayPal account. No strings, no points to redeem, no mail-in forms or membership fees.

Ebates also gives new members a free $10.00 to the retailer of their choice for signing up and making their first purchase of at least $25.00. An additional $5.00 is earned for every Facebook friend referred. Stack Ebates purchases with coupons, sales, and promotions for even greater savings.
