The answer is actually quite simple:
Ebates receives a commission every time you shop from any of the 1500+ retailers they host on their website. Instead of pocketing that commission, they give it back to you. It is absolutely free, and four times a year, Ebates will either mail you a "Big Fat Check," transfer any money you've made to your PayPal account, or send the money to your favorite charity!
Here's how it works:
It takes only a minute or two, and you're automatically going to get a thank you gift sent to your account, either in the form of cash, or a gift card - it's your choice when you sign up.
Peruse from a list of over 1500+ online retailers - some of my favorites are Target, Nordstrom, Bloomingdales, The Children's Place and Drugstore.com! The list is endless ... and you won't believe how many options you have.
When you're ready to shop, you click on your retailer of choice and Ebates will send you directly to the retailer's website. You'll shop, complete your purchase, and Ebates will make a record of it in your Ebates account within a day or so.
4. Get Cash Back!
Typically you'll receive 3-5% back of your total purchase. The great news is that Ebates offers Daily Doubles, and also keeps track of the retailer's best online coupons, too. So not only are you saving money, you're making cash back as well!
