Online Shopping and Using Ebates

Do you shop online? I know that a majority of my purchases are made online. I’m just too busy to run around to buy one thing these days.  If I can find it online, I’m more apt to buy and have it shipped.  I’m a total instant gratification girl by heart, but I have learned to be a bit more patient.


A few years ago, when I was surfing the parenting forums online, I was introduced to Ebates. Ebates is an online site that show the latest online deals, coupons, and also gives cashback when you enter certain stores through their site.  When you click through to the store, and make a purchase, a certain determined percentage (stated on the site), will be put into your account.  Approximately four times a year, Ebates pays out.  I always have my Ebates check deposit into my Paypal, which leads to more online spending.

These are some examples of my Ebates Rebates recently:

Overnight Prints (Blog Business Cards): Purchase Amount $34.95 Ebates Rebate $3.50

Victoria’s Secret: Purchase Amount $57.98 Ebates Rebate $1.16

Endless: Purchase Amount $27.90 Ebates Rebate $1.67

*The percentages vary as these purchases were made at different times, and the Ebates Rebates for each store vary.

I figure that I’m already shopping online, so why not try to get the best deal. You also get $5.00 deposited into your account for just signing up!
