Archive for the ‘Cash Back Sites’ Category

Remember my recent post about the big fat check I got from Ebates? Now’s your chance to start earning a big fat check of your own!

There’s a fabulous deal on Entertainment Books through Ebates today only:

  • 30% off (making it $24.50 for the STL book)
  • free shipping
  • 35% cash back…resulting in a total cost of just under $16 for the book!

Plus, if you’re new to Ebates you will get $5 credited to your account when you sign up. Sweet!

St. Louis Entertainment Books are loaded with fabulous deals, including six “$5 off $50” coupons for Shop-n-Save that can be stacked with their $10/$50 Thursday deals. I love it!

Here’s how you do it:

  • Sign up or log in to Ebates
  • Search for “entertainment book” or “”
  • Click through to the site and order your book
  • Your Ebates account should be credited for 35% of what you spent within about a month

A couple days ago I received a “Big Fat Check” from Ebates in my mailbox. Free money!

While it was “only” six dollars and some change, that’s fine with me, because it is cash back from money I was spending anyway. All I did to earn it was click through the Ebates site to do my online shopping. When it came time for them to cut checks (quarterly, I think), they sent one to me for the appropriate amount. Even better is the fact that you get $5 automatically credited to your account when you sign up! (And I’d get a bonus too…you could put a smile on my face!)

In just a couple of weeks I should get another check from ShopAtHome for over $25! Yay! ShopAtHome gives the highest cashback for Entertainment Books (35%), so if you’re in the market for a 2011 Entertainment Book, I recommend you sign up for ShopAtHome and buy it by clicking through their site. You also get a $5 bonus to your account when you sign up! (I also get a bonus if you sign up through the links on this page; I’d sure appreciate it and it wouldn’t cost you a dime!)

Another cashback site I use is Cashbaq. I’ve gotten checks from them totaling almost $50 in the past! Plus, you get a $5 bonus to your account just for signing up!

All of the sites have a minimum earnings requirement for at least the first check you receive. This means they will cut your first check when your balance reaches the required amount, usually $15-20.

What I do is check all three sites when making an online purchase to find the one offering the highest percentage of cashback for my desired store. Usually I will go with this cashback site to make my purchase. On rare occasions I have had to go back and request that the cashback be credited to my account because it is not done so automatically. This is the exception, however, and they have procedures to make this fairly easy.


Woo-hoo! I love freebies in the mail! And free money to use at Starbucks?! Absolutely!

The gift card you see in the picture arrived in my mailbox today, totally free. How? Swagbucks.

Swagbucks is a search engine that rewards its members for doing searches. I don’t get rewards for every search I do on the system, but I get enough that over time I can redeem my “bucks” for some fun prizes!

Last spring we bought our son a $100 bike and paid only $9 out of pocket. Swagbucks gift cards to Amazon paid the rest. I kid you not!

Interested? Sign up for Swagbucks here. Clicking that link will sign you up through me. It doesn’t hurt you at all, and it would help me out because I’d get up to 1000 Swagbucks for bucks you earn through searches! You can turn around and have folks sign up after you, drastically increasing the rate at which you earn Swagbucks.

And hey, just consider it a no-cost way to encourage me to keep running this site, right? 😉

I can’t believe I forgot to include this in my last post about the sale at right now!

If you sign in to your ShopAtHome account and buy your fantastic certificates through their site, you will get 25% cashback! Plus, if you are new to ShopAtHome, you’ll get an instant $5 credited to your account just for signing up.

Don’t want to use ShopAtHome for some reason? Then how about Cashbaq, where you’ll still get a $5 sign-on bonus and 20% cashback for purchases!

Deal upon deal!

Always, always, when shopping online, find some way to get cash back. 🙂
