Web Secret #373: ebates
Of course you do.
Would you like to get cash back for doing that?
It's not a myth - it's ebates.
The concept is simple - when you go to the store where you want to shop through its ebates link, you get cash back - a percentage of the money you spend. Earnings are paid out quarterly.
Ebates features over 1,800 online stores, from Macy's to Victoria's Secret, from Expedia to eBay and the list goes on and on.
Cash back can range from 2.5% to 6% - even more. Some stores specify the items that are eligible for cash back - eg Amazon was giving 3% for purchasing women's clothing. Other sites offer cash back on everything
Signing up takes seconds - then it's just a matter of remembering to check ebates whenever you want to buy online.
