Ebates; Why didn't I use this before?

I have been a member of Ebates for some time now. But for some odd reason, I never even went on their website. I had signed up because I saw it on someone's blog and I like to go around and sign up for things that I know other people will benefit from (getting money for signing up, points, etc). I know- I'm odd like that, but I do what I can.

Well, I signed up and never looked back. I continued to get emails from them about different promotions and getting cash back. Never thought to look at it again. That is, until today.

I was browsing, and if this is real (which I know it is), I can be getting a ton of cash back! I just made my first purchase through Ebates right now- I bought some Under Armour for the fiance since our 2 year anniversary is coming up next week. Under Armour gets 9% cash back! Um, yes please?

I had no idea that this was something I could be benefiting from.

Now, I do most of my shopping online. It is just what I like. I like to be able to browse and relax and sit in my pajamas and not worry about going into a crowded store. Granted, lately I have not been shopping since I am still unemployed--- but since this anniversary is a special occasin, I whipped out my way too high credit card and made the order.

But I really dont know why I never looked into this earlier? I could have been making a good amount of money- before I became unemployed that is. But at least, from now on.. I will be using Ebates and actually seeing what I can get cash back on.

Are you an Ebates customer? Do you have any tips for me or helpful info? If you do, I would LOVE to hear them! And if your not an Ebates customer- sign up! Don't make the mistake I did lol. Every penny is precious to me right now - and the fact that I could have had some more pennies in my pocket right now angers me haha.


  1. With all of the deals sites & coupons out there, I don't think we should ever pay full price! I love sites that help me save money!

  2. I started using eBates a while back and forgot about it.. this is a great reminder that no one should be paying full price! eBates makes it so easy to save money, thank you for this post!

  3. Oh my goodness- I signed up and forgot about it too! Thank u for the reminder- I will go take a look around to see what I've been missing! (I sign up for a lot of stuff on blogs as well!! LOL)

  4. I signed up for eBates a while back and have not used it yet. I'll need to revisit!
