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.
