Black Friday is Paying Me to Shop This Year

*this post may contain affiliate links 

I’m a skeptic.  Always have been.  I do not play well with car salesmen and I do not subscribe to anyone coming to my door trying to scam me out of my $40 for their miracle carpet-grout-cleaner-drinkable solution. So, when I first started seeing posts and blurbs for EBATES everywhere a few years ago I did what I do with many other things that are usually too good to be true. I ignored it. 


Fast forward to 3 months ago and I decided to use a link offered to me and sign up for free. I had some shopping to do and the link was going to put $10 in my account just for signing up. I was going to spend at least that, so I had nothing to lose. Now, 3 months later and I am getting a $50 check in the mail today for the shopping that I’ve done, y’all! As of today my total earnings for shopping has been $70.21.

That’s stuff from

  • Target
  • Wal-Mart
  • The Body Shop
  • Amazon
  • Sephora
  • Overstock
  • Best Buy
  • Groupon
  • Bath & Body Works
  • Cabelas
  • Under Armour

All for using the app. EBATES also allows me to place an assistant in my bookmark bar on my browser, so that while I’m shopping it will alert me on my savings. The phone app is just as functional allowing me to search for the best savings.  You even have the option to use your card securely in some stores via the app if you are an instant gratification kinda gal and do not want to wait for your online order. 


EBATES   Will also search coupons for you and coupon codes. Stacking your savings. 


It’s my early Christmas gift to you and it really is the gift that keeps giving. 

Why I didn’t do this a long time ago, I’ll never be able to fully do anything about except kick myself over it. Now, how to spend my next big fat check. Oh’ Tis the season.
