Ebates…..Where it Pays to Shop Online
Summary: It's a great concept. Ebates gets commission on sales and sends you, the consumer, a small percentage back on your purchase.
I don’t know about you but I have the “shop online” bug. Stress-free shopping….no lineups, no grumpy customers, no headache. It took me a while to feel confident and trusting enough to navigate what sites to share my info with and what sites to steer clear of. Lets face it, you don’t want to share your personal information with just anyone, let alone your credit card number. So I was pleasantly surprised when I stumbled upon this site. It actually pays me to shop using their site. From my own experience I’ve not had any issue with rebates up to this point. I’ve only made a few relatively minor purchases, so far so good. I did take the time to research other user reviews and I stumbled upon people who love the site and others who absolutely hate it. So use your good judgement and make sure to follow all the steps carefully when signing up. That appears to be where some of the issues lie. Just be careful and keep track of everything you purchase and keep your ticket numbers and you’ll be fine. The site offers many stores to choose from and I’m happy to report, they are legit…..interested yet? Thought so….
Three words…..cash back shopping. If you shop online from your favourite stores and use this site to do so, you will receive a rebate every couple of months. Yes, you heard me right…..you will get a rebate for doing nothing. You were going to shop anyway….
Ebates Canada has a relationship with more than 500 online stores that ship to Canada to offer cash back, special deals, including free shipping, and coupons to members of Ebates Canada.
Joining Ebates Canada is free and listen up, instead of paying a fee, four times a year or more, they’ll pay you! They’ll mail you a fat cheque, or transfer the money to your PayPal account if you’d prefer. They can even send the money to your favourite charity. And remember, it’s 100% free.
Every time you shop online at your favourite retailers, you earn back a percentage of every purchase. . Shopping with Ebates Canada is hassle-free: no rebate forms to fill out and no points or miles to redeem.
So how exactly do they make money if membership is free? It’s simple, they earn commission and instead of keeping it all, they share it with you.
Here are a few stores to choose from:
Apple Store, Dell, Adidas, Banana Republic, Chapters, Netflix, Bass Pro Shops, NBA Store, J Crew, Spanx, Bath and Body Works…..and that’s just a snippet of the over 500 to choose from.
So what are you waiting for…..get shopping! Christmas is just around the corner.
