If you haven’t heard about Ebates.com yet, you’re missing out on getting cash back from your online purchases. Ebates is the pioneer of online Cash Back Shopping and has been around since 1998. All you have to do is head to Ebates.com, register an account and start shopping. Start all of your buying sessions at Ebates, then sit back and watch the rebates roll in. Typical returns vary by vendor, but you can get anywhere from 2 to 25% back on your purchases. Here are a few vendors that we often link to at Geek Decor and their respective rebates:
Amazon.com – up to 8%
ThinkGeek.com – 5%
EntertainmentEarth.com – 3.5%
How do they do it, you ask? They are affiliate partners with many shopping sites, so those sites pay them a commission for all orders processed through Ebates. Ebates then gives you a healthy cut. Best of all, this costs nothing to join ever.
