With cash back sites, you’re getting a kickback on things you’re already planning to buy.

Plus if you want to invest a little time, you can take surveys while watching TV or waiting for your child to finish basketball practice.

Here’s an example of how I made $143.24 this month using these four cash-back sites.


1. I earned $50.34 with Ebates.

Ebates is like other cash back sites, but they really shine when it comes to their sign-on bonus and referral program!

When you sign up, you automatically get to choose a gift card worth between $5-10. When you sign two friends up, you get a $40.34 bonus!

I chose a gift card with a $10 value and told two of my friends about this deal, who, of course, also signed up (It’s a great deal!) for a net total of $50.34.


2. I earned $27.00 with TopCashback.

TopCashback is the only cash back site to pass 100% of your rebate on to you.

You can get retail and travel discounts, plus 7-10% back on hotel and flight purchases.

On a recent trip, I got $24 cash back (8%) on a hotel we booked at $200/night for three nights. My savings easily covered a portion of our eating-out expenses while on vacation.

I also purchased a Groupon for the trip and got 10% cash back for another $3 rebate.

If I wanted to, I could earn more cash by spending a few minutes here and there filling out surveys. Also, you’ll get $10 for each friend you refer.

To get started, sign up and create a TopCashback profile.



3. I earned $52.00 with Swagbucks.

You can earn Swagbucks (or points) by filling out surveys. Then you cash out and receive a variety of gift cards.

If you earn between 100-200 Swagbucks a day, you can get a $50 Amazon gift card every month.

I did my surveys while watching TV at night, and it was totally painless.

The best part? You can earn 4% cash back when you use your Amazon gift card to shop your favorite retailers through Swagbucks!

So basically, I spend the $50 gift card I earned through Swagbucks, and I make another $2.00.

Swagbucks also offers 3% cash back at Walmart, 8% cash back on travel deals at Expedia, and more.

In the past, I’ve used these Swagbucks hacks to earn $100 per month.



4. I earned $13.90 with Mr. Rebates.

You’ll get $7.50 just for signing up with Mr. Rebates.

Considering you only need to earn $10 before you can cash out, why wouldn’t you try it out?

Mr. Rebates offers 7% cash back on Amazon.com, and I made use of that right away by purchasing something I needed on Amazon for $19.99. (I made $1.40 in cash back.)

Then I took advantage of their 10% cash back at Ulta.com promotion and got $5 back on products I was planning to make a trip to Ulta for anyway.

So easy.
