Cash Back Shopping

Do you shop online?

You can earn cash back for your purchases! Ebates and Shop at Home are my favorite cash back shopping sites, and you will want to start by first creating free accounts with each of them:

  • Ebates – Receive a $5 cash sign-up bonus, or a $10 gift card.
  • Shop at Home – Receive a $5 cash sign-up bonus.

Why both sites?

Because each site offers different percentages of cash back for different retailers. By having an account with both, this ensures that you receive the maximum cash back.

How does it work?

When you are ready to shop online, go to Ebates or Shop at Home first, then search for retailers and click on the provided link to go to the retailers website.

After you make your purchase as you normally would, the appropriate amount of cash back will appear in your account a few days later.

You will not see a discount at checkout. Your cash back will appear in your Ebates or Shop at Home account, depending on which one you used to shop.

When Do I Get My Money?

Ebates – You can request your cash back be sent either by check or deposited into your PayPal account when you accumulate $5 or more in cash back, excluding your sign-up bonus. Ebates pays once every three months, provided you have met your $5 threshold.

Shop at Home –  You can request you cash back sent by check when you accumulate $20 or more in cash back, excluding your sign-up bonus. Shop at Home pays 60 days after the end of every month, provided you have met your $20 threshold.

Any Other Reason to Use these Sites?

Yes! Both Ebates and Shop at Home list current coupon codes to use on retailers’ websites. You may use these coupon codes in addition to earning your cash back!

Anything Else?

At first, it took me awhile to remember to use cash back sites when shopping online. But, after awhile, it became routine to go to Ebates or Shop at Home instead of directly to the retailers’ website. That cash back is a great incentive to remember!
