Yes, my friends. You read that right. A holiday shopping hack that EARNS you money.

I’ll keep this short and sweet because aint nobody got tons of time to read this, but if you haven’t already signed up with EBATES, you need to do it now before you start your holiday shopping.

Here’s what you need to know about Ebates:

  1. It’s an app/website that lets you earn cash back whenever you shop online at one of their retailers
  2. They’ve got a huge list of eligible retailers including:
    • ULTA
    • MACYS
    • OLD NAVY
    • FOREVER 21
    • SHOP BOP
  3. It costs you NOTHING to sign up
  4. If you sign up with my link, you AUTOMATICALLY get $10

Here’s what it looks like on desktop:


Right now, they’ve got early Black Friday deals and I’m sure later this week they’ll have more stuff too!

How do you earn cash back?

Once you’ve signed up, all you gotta do is click on whichever store you’re planning to shop at and you’ll be taken to that website through a portal that’ll record your purchases. Once you do your shopping, Ebates will send you a nice little email letting you know that you earned some cash back.

So if I was planning on shopping at Ulta for example, I’d search for Ulta or click on the store icon. Then I’d be taken to a page that looks like this.


I’d click on that red “shop now” button on the left hand side and it would take me straight to Ulta’s website. Then I’d do my usual online shopping. Only this time, I’d earn 6% cash back on whatever I decided to buy.

Imagine that… getting a little money back whenever you do your shopping!

With our baby due any minute now, we’re trying to save as much money as possible. I’ve legit been using EBATES for all of my online holiday shopping and I feel good knowing that with every purchase, I’m getting a little money back.

So how do you get your money?

Every quarter, EBATES will mail out a check to you if you have a positive balance. I actually got one this week for $78.37 – not bad for shopping I was gonna do regardless. Since I’ve joined, I’ve earned over $200.

During the holidays we do tons of shopping, so why not get rewarded for it?

*If you sign up with my referral link, I’ll get a couple bucks for referring you, but again, this is a service I’ve been using for over a year now and I think it’s totally worth it! Unless you like leaving money on the table. In that case, this really isn’t for you.

    Ebates is fantastic. I’m finally using it more and more now. I use the Chrome Extension as it makes shopping with Ebates SO much easier.
