You would be crazy not to utilize FREE Rewards shopping sites when making purchases online. There are quite a few out there. Here’s a list of our Top picks:
1 ► Ebates
This is our top pick!
It’s FREE to join Ebates and you will get a FREE gift for joining and making a one time purchase of $25 or more with one of their participating merchants. Your FREE welcome gift is your choice of either FREE $5 cash from Ebates or a FREE $10 gift card to Target, The Home Depot or magazine.com.
You will most definitely be able to find a way to make a purchase with participating retailers including Walmart, Macy’s, Kohl’s, Travelocity, Target, QVC, Best Buy, Target and Sears, just to name a few. There are over 1,500 stores that participate.
Here’s how it works – You must register for FREE with Ebates first. Then, make a $25+ purchase at a participating retailer by connecting through the Ebates web site so that you can get your FREE $5 Cash or FREE $10 Gift Card. Each purchase will earn you a predetermined percentage of your purchase back in cash. They pay quarterly assuming that your cash back reward is $5.01 or more, otherwise it’s carried over to the next quarter. There are no points to redeem, no forms to mail in, and no fees. If you do qualify you will automatically be sent a “Big Fat Check” for the amount at the end of the quarter. If not, the amount will be held over until you reach the minimum payout threshold.
Here’s how simple it is ► Submit your email address and get cash back at any of 1,200 stores any time you start your shopping trip at Ebates.com.
– See if retailers offer in-store pick up for purchases. For example, Best Buy will allow you to make a purchase online for an in-store pick up. So, if you know what you want, place the order in advance through the Ebates site. You will then earn a FREE cash back reward on your purchase.
– When planning a vacation, book hotels, air fare and car rental with Priceline’s Name Your Own Price feature. You will earn a FREE cash back reward when you make a Priceline purchase through Ebates.
