I was just recently reminded about a free way to easily get cash back on online purchases. I have been using Raise, Honey, Ibotta and Checkout51 to great success this year, and have saved more than $200 in the last 5 months.

But I could’ve been saving even more that whole time!

My sister actually sent me a referral for this other free cash back service nearly two years ago and I cringe when I think of how much money I could’ve saved in that time if I’d signed up then. (Sorry, sis!) But, I can only move forward and make the most of what I know now. And I want to make sure you know about it too.

If you do any shopping online, you’ve got to implement this one simple change to your buying routine.

Save on all your online shopping with this one simple tip

Start at Ebates.

What is Ebates?

Ebates is a website that gives you cash back for simply beginning your online shopping at their site, and using their links to browse to other online sites.

It’s awesome! You can find so many shopping sites there with discounts. It’s just another great way to stretch your budget. For example, I went to Ebates, searched for Raise, and saw that I could get an additional 1% cash back on my total purchase. So, every time I need to shop at Lowe’s, I can go to Ebates, link over to Raise, and get gift cards with two levels of discounts. Then I can go to Ebates, link over to Lowe’s, and buy items online (for store pickup if needed) to get another Ebates discount while using my discounted gift cards to pay! Buy things on sale or with promo codes and the savings go even further. Whoa!!!

To make Ebates even more of a no-brainer, you get a $10 referral bonus if you spend at least $25 at a linked shopping site within the first 3 months. You better believe I took advantage of that. It was so easy that I got $35 worth of gift cards for only $23, and my Ebates account was credited with those savings within 24 hours.

You’ll be amazed at how many online sites you’ll find on Ebates. Stop missing out on these cash back offers!
