This deal is huge! Ebates ran a deal similar to this one a few months ago, but they didn’t have the lowest prize (which I think is attainable by anybody!) Here are the steps:
- Sign in or Sign up to Ebates. New members will have to spend $25 through them in order to qualify for the promotion. That is pretty easy to do since they have hundreds of stores to shop at. You will get a $5 bonus as a new member and you can withdraw that as soon as you have earned $10 in your own rebates.
On a side note, a few of the magazine sites offer a 26% rebate so if you spend $25 on subscriptions then you will get a $6.50 rebate and your $5 bonus, making your out of pocket cost only $14.50 (for $25 in magazine subscriptions already on sale)
Once you are a member you can refer other members. You will get a $5 bonus for every member you refer plus some new “bonus” prizes.
- Refer 3 new people who spend $25 through the site and you will get a bonus $30 (on top of the $5 per person rate) for a total of $45! That is pretty easy to do. You can refer your friends, family members, etc. You will get $5 for signing up yourself so you will end up with $50 in free money!
- Refer 20 new people and you will get an extra $200 or a Flip Ultra HD (for a total of $300).
- Refer 50 new people and you will get an extra $500 or an iPad (for a total of $750).
- Refer 150 new people and you will get an extra $1500 shopping spree (for a total of $2250).
- Refer 250 new people and you will get an extra $3000 or a dream vacation (for a total of $4250).
So the higher levels might be a stretch, but I do think that the refer three people and make a total of $50 is do-able for everybody. Remember that they do have to spend $25 so let them know about the magazine deal (or other deals you find).
This promotion ends on February 28th.
