I'm a busy lady. Going to school while completing clinical hours is basically a full time job. Add to that being a wife and mom to two little kids, and it's obvious that time is a precious commodity. When I do have some free time, I want to spend it doing something fun with my kids, or napping (hey, just keeping it real!). Going out to the mall or store with two little boys is often a tricky task. Timing things around nap time, making sure I have enough snacks and diapers can be reason enough for me to talk myself out of a shopping trip. Lucky for me, online shopping is very easy. My other three favorite words are "out for delivery."
So how does a busy mom save an extra few bucks while shopping online? Ebates to the rescue! Ebates offers Cash Back at over 2,000 stores every time you start your shopping trip at Ebates. There are no points to redeem, no forms to mail in, and no fees. The stores pay Ebates a commission for sending you their way without any change in pricing.
It's pretty simple: go to Ebates before you start shopping online, find your online retailer, start a shopping trip by clicking "shop now," and fill up your cart! There's even an optional browser widget that you can download - it flashes red if you've forgotten to activate Ebates! The Cash Back you earn is sent to you quarterly, either by PayPal, a check in the mail, or e-gift card to an Ebates retailer. I have saved hundreds of dollars in the years that I've been using it.
