Ebates contacted me again and asked if they could give away some more cash on my blog. I figured none of you would complain.
To enter to win either $100 in cash (three winners) or an iPod shuffle (two winners), all you have to do is be signed up for an Ebates account through my referral link. Ebates is going to choose the winners from all of my referrals. So if you signed up under me three years ago or you sign up this weekend, you’re entered to win.
You don’t need to buy anything, you don’t need to leave a comment, you just need to go and sign up for an Ebates account. It’s that simple. If you already have an Ebates account, you can have your husband or someone else in your family sign up for their own account through my link and they’ll be entered to win.
You’ve probably seen me plug Ebates before, but in case you don’t know what it is, here’s a brief rundown:
Ebates is one of the oldest and easiest-to-navigate cashback sites. Cashback sites work with online stores to offer you a percentage — usually somewhere between 3-6% of your total purchase — back as a rebate. When you’re making an online purchase, you just click on Ebates, search for the online store you’re shopping at and then click through that store’s page on Ebates and make your purchase. Within 30-60 days, your Ebates account will be credited with your cashback percentage.
Every three months, if you’ve earned at least $5.01, they’ll send you a check or Paypal payment. While 3-6% might not seem like much, it can really add up over time. And if you’re already going to be making the online purchase, you might as well get a little kickback, too, right? After all, it’s essentially “free” money!
When you sign up and make your first purchase, you’ll get a $5 bonus added to your account. This is just their way of thanking you for joining and giving you a little extra incentive to make sure and go through Ebates when ordering online.
Ebates also offers special referral opportunities. For instance, for every person who signs up through your affiliate link and makes a qualifying purchase, you’ll earn a $5 bonus. Plus, through May 30, 2011, you can get an additional $40 bonus if you refer four new people to Ebates who make a purchase. If you have a blog or if you have friends who like to shop online, this is a great way to introduce them to a money-saving idea while also earning some extra $$ yourself!
So, what are you waiting for? Go sign up for an Ebates account and be entered to win $100 or a 2GB iPod Shuffle. This giveaway runs through Monday.
Please note: If you sign up through my link and make a qualifying purchase, I’ll receive a $5 bonus. However, no purchase is required to enter this giveaway.
