I haven't talked about Ebates much yet, but if you are an online shopper then a shopping portal like Ebates is a great place to start.
I have been needing to get some curtains for my family room. I got a catolog for JCPenny's this week with drapes and home stuff at 50% off with a coupon code (INMYROOM) for an extra 10% off. So I went a looking.
First I went to Swagbucks, (cause you never want to miss out on earning some :) then typed in Ebates, when the Ebates site came up I typed in JCPENNY and clicked on the link. That's it, that's all there is to it. I shopped to my hearts content, I found the curtains I wanted, them from JCPENNY's site securely and next quarter I will get 3% of my purchase price back from Ebates.
All online shopping I do, whether it's pictures at Walgreens, or vitamins at Drugstore.com, I go thru these same steps. The money adds up! In February, I am expecting a BIG FAT CHECK (that's what Ebates calls it) via Paypal for $27.21. That's for all the shopping I did Oct-Dec of 2010.
Every little bit helps!
