Do you shop online often?
Would you like to earn money for making those everyday purchases?
Let me introduce you to way to get paid to shop online for purchases you are already making.
It’s called Ebates.
This year alone I earned almost $700 from this amazing program.
Let me explain the details.
What is Ebates?
Ebates is an affiliate site that shares revenue with you when you shop at their partnership stores. You earn a percentage of the total sale.
How do You Earn Money from Ebates?
There are two ways to earn through Ebates.
1) Log onto the Ebates site and discover what stores are offering cash back. Then click on the link from the Ebates site.
You will be taken to that online store through an affiliate link. You will earn a percentage of total sales.
2) Download the Ebates button for Google Chome. When you shop online, the extension will notify you if the store qualifies for cash back and how much.
Now shop and earn!
Your earnings typically show up within 48 hours of your purchase. Then they sit in your “account,” until Ebates sends you a check.

What Stores Can You Shop At?
I know what you are thinking, “There is no way I’m going to earn money where I shop; the stores must be no names!!”
You are WRONG:)
Here is a partial list of stores that qualify now:
- JC Pennys
- Finish Line
- Bed Bath and Beyond
- Old Navy
In total, there are over 2,000 stores where you can earn cash back.
How Much Can You Earn?
The percentage you can earn from each store varies almost daily. As of the time I am writing this post, here is how much cash back you can earn at a few stores:
- Kohls – 6%
- Sears – 7%
- New Balance – 10%
- Macy’s – 6%
- Walmart – 4%
When Do You Get Paid?
According to the Ebates site you get paid:
How Do You Get Paid?
Ebates sends you a “Big Fat Check” corresponding with the above dates. It is a physical check and is exciting when it comes in your mailbox.
Ebates also helps in two additional ways:
1) Daily Deals, Coupons, and Promo Codes
When you visit the Ebates site, you will find the “Hot Deals” link. When you click the link, you will find a sh*t ton of deals going on.
Look at this screenshot below. Ebates is showing you can earn 40% off select major appliances and up to 40% off. Not too bad.
2) Ebates Button
If you utilize the Ebates button while shopping online, Ebates will find coupons for you to use at checkout. Another way to save some money.
Can You Earn Money?

February – $100.29
May – $327.30
