I have been asked SO. MANY. TIMES. what our favorite tools are for saving money. A little backstory: We were super deep in poverty and struggling to make it by for years so I gained some serious skills when it came to saving money. One of the tools we used back then we still use to this day because it’s just plain and simply amazing. That free tool is called Ebates.
So what is Ebates? It’s an amazing little extension/app that you can use on your computer, tablet, or phone to get discounts and cash back on things you already buy. When we were Super Broke, we used Ebates throughout the year whenever we made a purchase online and saved all of our cash back for Christmas gifts for our kids. Because of this one little, easy-to-use tool we were able to give our children a good Christmas every year, no matter how broke we were.
Honestly, as weird as it sounds, Ebates holds a special place in my heart because it really is the app that saved Christmas.
Ok, enough of the sob story. You need to know how Ebates can save you money FOR FREE. So here we go…
When you install Ebates on your browser, it lights up and blinks at you in the corner of the site when you go to buy something online. It’s letting you know that you need to “Activate” the extension (which means clicking the “Activate” button–seriously easy) to get your cash back and discounts. Then when you go to check out, it applies all of the available discount codes to your cart to get you the most savings available. Ebates–you the real MVP. Once you complete your checkout, you simply wait for the cash back to be deposited into your Ebates wallet. Ebates will then send you the cash in their semi-annual payouts. You can choose how you would like to receive the money; I personally opt for it to be deposited into my paypal account. And… that’s it! It really is that easy.
Now, if you want Ebates to make you money, all you have to do is share the love with your friends. You simply send them your referral link from Ebates and for every person who signs up for Ebates with your link and makes a purchase of at least $25 using the cash back tool, you get $25, and your frend gets $10! So, you share this amazing, money-saving tool with your friends so they too can save money too, they get $10 to spend and Ebates pays you $25. I mean, it couldn’t get any easier.
So what are you waiting for? Get this app now and start saving/making money!
