Do you shop online?
- Ebates – Receive a $5 cash sign-up bonus, or a $10 gift card.
- Shop at Home – Receive a $5 cash sign-up bonus.
Why both sites?
Because each site offers different percentages of cash back for different retailers. By having an account with both, this ensures that you receive the maximum cash back.
How does it work?
After you make your purchase as you normally would, the appropriate amount of cash back will appear in your account a few days later.
When Do I Get My Money?
Ebates – You can request your cash back be sent either by check or deposited into your PayPal account when you accumulate $5 or more in cash back, excluding your sign-up bonus. Ebates pays once every three months, provided you have met your $5 threshold.
Shop at Home - You can request you cash back sent by check when you accumulate $20 or more in cash back, excluding your sign-up bonus. Shop at Home pays 60 days after the end of every month, provided you have met your $20 threshold.
Any Other Reason to Use these Sites?
At first, it took me awhile to remember to use cash back sites when shopping online. But, after awhile, it became routine to go to Ebates or Shop at Home instead of directly to the retailers’ website. That cash back is a great incentive to remember!
