The Legal Disclosure: All product reviews are my own & products have been purchased by myself unless otherwise noted. The reviews will always be honest, full of respect & trust. Some posts may contain affiliate links which means that if you click on the link & make a purchase, I may be compensated (this is at no cost to you). Not all links are affiliate links but will post this on every linked page to be fully transparent.

Ebates is an online “cash back and shopping rewards company.” There are so many online “rebate” or “cash back” places online that it’s hard to figure them all out and which ones are legit. They do work with major retailers like Amazon, Target, Wal-Mart, Best Buy, Sephora, Dick’s Sporting Goods, Kohl’s, Expedia, Under Armour, & Groupon.

I love the channel ‘This or That’ and saw her talking about Ebates so decided to give it a try. I used her link which gave her cash back and gave me a $10.00 Welcome Bonus once I spent at least $25.00 doing my regular online shopping.

There is a widget that you can download so everytime you shop online, you can “activate” the cash back and you do not have to do anything else. The widget option came up after I joined so I didn’t have to go search for it.

There is NO CHARGE for this service and you do not need to put in your bank details. You can choose to have the funds sent via PayPal or by check to your home. I honestly was skeptical until I did my taxes through H&R Block. While we did our taxes, it gave me the pop-up to activate the cash back so I clicked on it. Because it was over $20, I earned the $10.00 sign-on bonus.

I can’t believe I forgot to take a picture of the check! I seem to take pics of everything and forgot this one! These posts are important so you know that I’m not just making stuff up to get you to sign up (which I would NEVER do) so I apologize I forgot to get a picture of the check. My goal is to help you save money with this service.

My first check I received was for $16.01. I received the $10.00 Welcome Bonus, $5.35 from H&R Block, and $0.66 from SprezzaBox. Yes, subscription boxes even work!!!

Currently, I have $1.13 waiting – $0.42 from Target, $0.38 from Target, $0.33 from L’Occitane.

You have the option to enter your credit card information but I do not understand that piece yet so will not recommend it until I know more. I will write a new review and link this one once I have more information on other pieces such as the CC info.

If this is something you would like to try, please use the link below. Referrals give the person signing up a $10.00 Welcome Bonus (once you spend $25.00) and the Referer earns $25.00. It’s definitely worth it to give/get referrals but I always want someone to know I’m not referring them just to make money, I’m very pleased with this service & truly think it’s worth it. You can sign up directly through their website without my link if that is a concern but I would definitely appreciate you using my link.


If you have any questions about Ebates or how it works, please let me know in the comments below. I would be more than happy to help.
