Double Cash Back at Ebates in time for Mother’s Day!

Happy May!  It’s almost Mother’s Day– and it’s time for many (including myself) to get those gifts, flowers, cards, plants, etc purchased in time for Sunday.  It’s also my birthday week…and since I’m a mom…so sometimes maybe it’s time for me to surprise myself?!  One of my FAVORITE ways to shop is online but my most favorite way is using because I earn cash back on my purchases and it helps me to save money.  I may or may not have gotten an email from Ebates congratulating me on a certain transaction number in my lifetime with them a year or so ago.  Given my love for Ebates, and getting cash back, when they said “Hey Brett, can you help spread the word about our Mother’s Day DOUBLE cash back promotion?” I of course had to say yes.

Here’s the super fun thing.  Does mom like magazines?  Head to Ebates, click on, and get her a renewal or a new subscription to People Magazine (or maybe just me. I mean, we all have guilty pleasures???) and then YOU will get 52% cash back on the subscription price.  PLUS when you click through, a $5 off coupon is on the home page.  Let’s do that math.  Can someone send this to my husband please? 

1 year People Magazine is $116.07 for 53 issues.  (The $5 coupon won’t work for People, so maybe get a subscription for yourself with People, and then surprise someone else with another magazine that does work with the coupon). But still… Then you get $60.36 back from Ebates.  Um, hello?  Sign me up, please and thank you.  I mean, you know.  Sign yourself up.  (I would feel guilty buying for myself but I’d love to have this! What a fun gift that lasts all year!)

Thanks to Ebates for sponsoring this conversation today, and for giving me cash back since 2008.  Three cheers for smart spending!

Ebates celebrates Mothers with a Mother’s Day #Giveaway

A few months ago, I got an email from Paypal that I’d made my 500th purchase with them.  Chuckling to myself, I realized quickly that a majority of those purchases were made through, which meant that I got more money back…to use on more purchases.  Online shopping is in my blood.  My mom taught me  the basics, I just mastered the art of finding ways to save more and spend less.

Double cash back from places like Sephora, Coach, Groupon, Nordstrom, FTD,, and more.  I would not say no to a pink Coach bag for Mother’s Day.  Nor for my birthday, for that matter.  Or Groundhog Day.  I’m not picky.  But shopping for gifts is always a little bit sweeter when you can get some cash back on your purchases and spend a little bit smarter.  Or you can be like me and maybe end up spending the same after finding a few extras to spend the savings on. Either way.

To celebrate mom, and Mother’s Day (and you!! yes, you!) Ebates is going to send one of YOU $150 Cash!  Well, it’ll be cash sent through a check or paypal, whatever way your Ebates account is set to cash out.  To enter, simply follow instructions on the Rafflecopter form below.

Ebates’ Cyber Monday 2: #Win Cash #giveaway 3 winners

Ebates is my favorite cash back site for online shopping.  I almost never even consider shopping online without heading to Ebates first- just to see if the site offers cash back for my purchases.  Especially for items that aren’t eligible for coupons, I can often get cash back on my order- which ultimately kind of IS a coupon..just delayed.  Or you could view it like a rebate.

Ebates is starting Cyber Monday 2 on December 12th at 12:01 AM EST with double cash back at over 500  stores! ToysRUs is normally 4% cash back, they’ve been at 7% for a few weeks, and on Cyber Monday 2 will be 10%!  I have ordered a few things from them this week and some arrived within 48 hours- so there is plenty of time to holiday shop!

Need to send some flowers this season?  Order them on Cyber Monday 2 from Teleflora or FTD and get 30% cash back!

They are also having a final holiday promotion on December 16th called Free Shipping Friday.

Have you signed up yet?  You get $10 free in your account or in a $10 gift card- you can choose from several stores for that!!  [click to continue…]

One for him and All You for ME!!
