Saving Money Using Ebates

Many people have heard of the site Ebates and it has the people saying “what is Ebates?”, “is Ebates a scam?” that got me searching for the answer. So I put on my private investigator costume and decided to see what Ebates is all about. So what is Ebates? Ebates is basically an online shopping mall that lets their members to use to shop from major retailers. While using Ebates members have the ability to actually make some cash back from their purchases.

With the opportunity to earn cash back from shopping this has everyone scratching their heads asking “is Ebates a scam?” Well the answer to that is no because Ebates is an affiliate website to the major retailers that gets paid each time you click on their links. Ebates then goes in gives back a portion of their earnings to the members of the site,

Now this has everyone asking “why should I join Ebates?” Instead of me trying to convince you, I will just let Ebates. On the Ebates site they state:

“You get cash back at any of 1,500 stores any time you start your shopping trip at There are no points to redeem, no forms to mail in, and no fees. Stores pay Ebates a sales commission for sending shoppers their way, and Ebates uses the commission to pay you cash back. All we need is an email address so we can notify you when your cash back has been credited. To date, our members have already earned more than $100,000,000 and you can join them today!”

While returns and exchanges do cancel out the cash back earnings, Ebates is a pretty decent website. Unfortunately you only get your cash back about every 3 months through either check or PayPal as long as you have earned at least $5, not including bonuses for signing up or referrals. So will you become an Ebates member?
