A Cashback Website Worth Joining
Today I earned cash back by shopping at Kohl’s through an Ebates.com link and discovered how to turn a little shopping into earning some real money from home. Yes, I know that cashback sites are nothing new. However, if you haven’t signed up at any of the cashback sites yet, now is your time to do it. If you’re looking for a way to earn extra money from home in your spare time, this website can help.
Since I recently wrote a couple of posts on buying discounted gift cards, I’m still in that mindset of saving and earning money. I read an article online that mentioned Ebates.com as a really good cashback website. I thought I would check it out. In doing so, I noticed that Kohl’s had a 6% cash back reward plus a coupon code that would get me an extra 20% off my purchase. All I had to do was click the Kohl’s link on the Ebates website and Ebates opens what they call a tracking ticket. Even better, add the Ebates Cash Button to your browser and anytime you visit a participating merchant website, you will be immediately informed of any cash back offers; you don’t have to do anything!
If you initiate a purchase through an Ebates link or activate cash back through the Ebates Cash Button, you only have to wait a few days or less to see cash back added to your account. Ebates pays you by check or PayPal–your choice.
However, if you apply my gift card money-making technique revealed in my Gift Cards Can Make You Money post, coupled with Ebates (as long as a retailer that you have a gift card for is a participating Ebates merchant), you could make some serious part-time money.
For instance, if you purchase a discounted Kohl’s gift card at 12.6% off face value (being offered right now at Raise.com), use it to buy sale merchandise on the Kohl’s website that you linked through from the Ebates website (remember the 6% cash back offer by visiting Kohl’s through Ebates link), use a coupon code to get an additional percentage off the sale price (there are always coupon codes being offered for Kohl’s), get free shipping (Kohl’s often offers free shipping on a purchase of $75 or more), THEN turned around and sold your merchandise on eBay (or Amazon, Craigslist, or a Facebook Buy, Sell, Trade group) for a profit, you would have yourself a nice little home business. Not only will you be receiving money in your PayPal account after your eBay auction is over (or you sell your item(s) through another website), you’ll receive a nice fat check (or deposit into your PayPal account) from Ebates! Turn around and use your Ebates money to fund your next purchase of discounted gift cards, and start all over again.
