How to Use EBATES
I’ve always been a proponent of searching high and low for discount codes and coupons prior to making an online purchase, so I’m not really sure why I’ve been avoiding EBATES all of these years! I don’t know how many times I’ve seen EBATES on blogs and the news, yet I never really used the site. Who/what is EBATES? EBATES was one of the first companies to offer cash back for online shopping! I listed all the details in the video/screencast below. Check it out!

  1. Sign up for a free eBates account (this is my referral link).
  2. Install the eBates cash back button to your browser (I use Google Chrome).
  3. Start shopping!
  4. When you land on a store that is affiliated with eBates, your eBates cash back button will be outlined in green. If you have the eBates banner enabled, it will basically scream the percentage of cash back offered by the retailer!
  5. Wait 3-4 days for the money to hit your account.
  6. Get paid every 3 months. Here’s the payment schedule.
  7. Payment can be in check or PayPal form; you can also donate your payment to charity!

The nifty thing about EBATES is that there are over 1,700 online retailers that use EBATES! Here are a few of my favorite stores:



Piperlime (7% cash back!)

Banana Republic (Coupons only for now)






Barney’s New York

C. Wonder


J. Crew

J. Crew Factory

…and so many more!

This past week I ordered some skirts from ASOS, and I just realized TODAY that I failed to use EBATES. I wanted to kick myself! Yeah, I missed out on $4, but that $4 adds up! Sadly, EBATES can’t/won’t add the cash back to your account if you failed to use the link.

Still unsure? I understand. Like you, I was hesitant to use EBATES, but I had to try it for myself.

If you use EBATES, please be sure to tell me your success stories!
