As a small incentive, they will put a $5 sign-up bonus into your account. As soon as you make your first $5 purchase through Ebates (from any store that offers cash back) then that $5 bonus is yours plus whatever cash-back percentage offered for that store. So, it's like a $5 rebate on any item you purchase. You will get paid that $5 sign-up bonus as soon as you earn at least $5.01 in cash back from your purchases through Ebates.
Ebates is a fabulous way to create your own cash rebate on almost every online purchase you make. Plus they give you easy access to some of the best coupon codes and promotions for your favorite stores.
There are 3 easy steps to signing up:
1. Visit Ebates and sign-up
2. Type in the name of the store in the top left-hand corner. Then click "Search".
3. Click on the store to shop. You will see how much cash back you will earn and what coupons are available to use at that store. Just click on the name of the store and you are on your way to earning that percentage cash back on your purchase.
You can still use coupon codes because Ebates helps you find those coupon codes! The best part is that Ebates gives you the option to receive a check in the mail every 3 months when you have earned at least $5.01 cash back in your account. Or you can have your cash deposited into your PayPal account. There is absolutely no paper work or follow-up for you to do to get your cash rebates, you simply find your online store on Ebates and then click on your store to start your shopping. This is honestly one of the easiest online rebate programs I've ever used. And my rebates are adding up fast even though I do not make many purchases online.
