Ebates Bonus is $10 again!

by Rocket Finance

Ebates is offering a $10 sign-up bonus again! The bonus was only $5 for the last two weeks, but if you sign up through this link, and make a purchase before February 14th, you will get a $10 bonus. I just found a new store at Ebates that I plan to use often – giftcertificates.com. If you shop through the Ebates portal, you will earn 4% cash back on everything you purchase from giftcertificates.com. Here is the kicker – the stores are actually places you shop – like Walmart, Overstock, Staples, Best Buy, Tiger Direct and more. You will pay shipping and handling for the gift certificate, usually about $2 if you don’t rush delivery. If you buy $100 or $200 worth of certificates, the shipping cost is less than your cash back. It is a great way to save a little extra money on stuff you are going to buy anyway. Here are a couple of ideas:

Sign up for Ebates through this link to earn the $10 bonus. Buy a $100 Walmart gift certificate from giftcertificates.com and earn $4 cash back. Pay $2 for shipping and handling. Buy $100 worth of merchandise from Walmart for $88. Use a cash back credit card to earn even more cash back. . .some of you might like Amex Blue Cash.

Pick out a $600 laptop computer that you want from Tiger Direct. Sign up for Ebates through this link to earn the $10 bonus. Buy $600 worth of Tiger Direct gift certificates from giftcertificates.com and earn 4% cash back. ($24) Shop at Tiger Direct through the Ebates portal and earn 3% cash back on your computer purchase. ($18) Use a cash back credit card to earn even more savings. . . or a $50 sign-up bonus with Chase Freedom.(offer expired)

I like to use my Chase Freedom card for 1 to 3% cash back. Many people use American Express Blue Cash for up to 5% cash back.

If you are contemplating a major electronics purchase of any kind, it is difficult to beat any deal that you will get by shopping at Tiger Direct through Ebates.

    Good tips, thanks. Another good credit card is Countrywide’s latest offering but only if you have a Countrywide Mortgage). They will put 2% cash back towards the principal of your mortgage.

    I’ve found that over time I’m better off using Savingswatch.com as they have higher commission rates and pay more frequently. In addition, their coupon content is much better. That said, free money is tempting 😉

    I’ve never heard of them – I’ll check it out. We are always looking for coupons – especially on coffee and diapers.
