I always shop through Mr. Rebates or Ebates and I save a lot of money doing that! You can combine the rebates that you recieve through them with coupon codes and sales. In fact,there is a JCPenney deal using Ebates going on right now that is amazing (I’ll post that soon).
The downside of Ebates is they only send checks every three months (Mr. Rebates sends them every month) and you have to have made $5 in your own rebates to get your check – regardless of how much you made in referral or sign up bonuses.
Checks are sent at the end of May so now is your chance! If you sign up for an Ebates account you will get a $5 bonus. Then earn a rebate of $5 and you will get your check/paypal for $10 (or more if your rebate was higher or if you have referrals) in May. If you wait then your check will come in August.
If you have already created an account there then log in to see how close you are to getting a check. You might be one small purchase away from getting all of your money. Depending on how much you have, you may even get a free purchase out of it! There are hundreds of sites where you can earn the rebate, here are some of my favorites:
- Avon has a 6% rebate right now – they have an amazing outlet section
- Ice.com has an 8% rebate right now – there are some great Mother’s Day gifts there
- FTD has a 20% rebate right now – you can schedule the flowers for any occasion
- The Body Shop has a 10% rebate
- Restaurant.com has a 25% rebate
- Magazines.com has a 26% rebate
- Lancome has a rebate of 12.5%
- Try Netflix and get $10 – we use Netflix instead of cable and we save a lot of money that way! You need a Roku box to do that (you can also use the Wii, but we have both and it is not even comparable. The Roku box has other channels that you can subscribe to and many are free. You can also search Netflix using the Roku and they send you recommendations (the Wii only shows us the videos we already picked out and we have to log on the computer to add new ones).
You can combine the rebates with coupon codes, which are listed at Ebates.
This is only a good deal if there is something you need. But, log in your account to see how close you are. If you miss the deadline you will be waiting until August to get your check (and you don’t want to forget!)
