Krazy Coupon Ladies (and gents) are always looking for new ways to squeeze extra savings out of every nickel. That’s why we love! It’s a simple, smart way to save. The basics: you earn cash back on online purchases. Plus, new members even earn a $10.00 gift card to a national retailer.

This week’s back-to-school tip: To maximize savings, stack coupon codes and online deals featured on with double cash back from Ebates. Read on to learn how, and to see a list of which retailers are offering double cash back.

How it works:

  • It is entirely free. Starting an Ebates account takes under a minute and requires only an email address. No sensitive information required.
  • Shopping via Ebates nets users cash back rebates (as high as 25%) from over 1,500 major retailers nationwide.
  • Browse online stores from the Ebates partner list. Each store lists a cash back percentage to shoppers. Average cash back is from 4%-12%!
  • Follow the link to the store you want and shop as normal. Cash back automatically accrues in an Ebates account until a threshold 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 $10.00 gift card for signing up and, right now, an additional $10.00 for every friend referred. We like to stack Ebates purchases with coupons, sales, and promotions for even greater savings.

“On average, I earn a $5 gift card each month. I save those for the end of the year and use the cards to buy a Christmas gift for family.”  — KCL reader Juliana
