What is Ebates?
Ebates is an awesome site that earns you cashback on your online purchases. You can earn up to 25% cashback on purchases, although it's more typical to earn 2% to 4%. The online store you shop at pays Ebates a fee when you shop, and that fee is shared with you. There is no membership fee and it is completely free to participate. No strings attached!

How Do I Make Money?
Once you have created your account, all you have to do is login through their website, select the retailer you want to shop at and note the percentage of cashback you will earn, and Ebates creates a tracking ticket for your shopping trip. When you make a purchase at that retailer during your session, the percentage amount is credited to your Ebates account, typically within 48 hours. They send out payments every 3 months, and you can choose to have a check mailed to you, or you can have the money deposited into your Paypal account. The amount in your account must be over $5.01, or the money gets rolled into the next pay period. You can also choose to have your cashback money donated to your favorite charity.
Every so often, they will offer double cashback when you make a purchase at a participating retailer, so be sure to opt in to their emails so you are alerted about these opportunities. What's even better about this opportunity is that you can layer the deals by using online coupons with your purchase.

Earning Potential
It's pretty typical to earn 2% to 4% cashback at most retailers. However, if you're making a big purchase, be sure to go through Ebates to earn your cashback. I recently purchased a Kindle HDX through and got 2% cashback on my purchase. That earned me $3.78 just by going through Ebates. And don't let the small percentages fool you. If you do a lot of online shopping, it adds up quick.

**Referral Program** 
Refer a friend and earn $15. For every friend you refer after that, you earn $5.
