Save More On Practically Every Online Purchase!

If you are an avid online shopper like I am, there’s something you absolutely must know before you make your next online purchase . . . You can get CASH BACK on your purchases at thousands of sites! The real green stuff that comes to you either in the form of a check or a deposit to your PayPal account! No forms to complete! Nothing to cut off a box and mail in.

It’s so easy and only takes about a minute of your time to figure out where you can get the most cash back. I’ll give you an example of a sale that I shopped a few days ago so you’ll know how it works . . .

There are many cash back sites, but my favorites are Big Crumbs, Ebates and Mr. Rebates. A couple of days ago, I found a 25% off sale on tees at Coldwater Creek—one of my favorite online retailers. Since I wanted to get in on that action, the first thing I did was go to each of my three favorite cash rebate sites to see if Coldwater Creek is a participating merchant. Lucky for me, all three sites have a partnership with Coldwater Creek.

Which Site Offers the Most Cash Back

So now, which rebate site do you choose and why not enroll in just one? The answer is simple: each cash rebate site has a different arrangement with the merchant so the percentage cash back you’ll receive can vary widely from site to site. Here’s what my research revealed:

Needless to say, I’m going with the site where I can get the most money back, so I chose Mr. Rebates.  Here’s how I’ll shop the site to ensure that I get my cash back.

How to Shop and Get Cash Back

  1. I logged in to Mr. Rebates with my user name and password.
  2. In the search field to the left, I searched for “Coldwater Creek.”
  3. My search showed the results and indicated that I will get 4% cash back on my purchase at Coldwater Creek. I also learned by reading the fine print that I can get FREE SHIPPING on all orders—something that I didn’t know before.
  4. I clicked on the blue link for Coldwater Creek and a dialog box popped up that looks like this. It verifies that–
  • I’m logged in (you won’t get your cash if you’re not logged in);
  • I’m shopping with Coldwater Creek;
  • I’ll earn 4% cash back; and
  • There may be other coupons and discounts that I can use on this site (see “Click here for current coupons”).

You’ll always be taken to the site’s home page, but that’s no big deal. Most sites have their current promotions on their home page so you can easily find the current promotion or sale.

Now, start browsing for anything on the site. It doesn’t matter what you buy—everything on the site is eligible for the 4% cash back!

Place items in your shopping cart and check out the way you always do when you shop on line. If the sale requires a promotional code, enter that where indicated upon checkout.

Getting Your Cash

On average, rebates get credited within 3 to 5 business days (sometimes earlier) from the order date or the ship date. However, it can take up to 30 days after the order date for Mr. Rebates to receive confirmation of the purchase or that an offer has been completed.

To see your account activity, just log in to the rebate site and check your account activity. Most sites have a threshold for requesting your cash. On Mr. Rebates, it’s $10 in accrued rebates. You can request a check or a deposit to your PayPal account when you earn $10.01 in rebates or you can let the cash build up—sort of like a savings account for something special that you want.

I’ve never had a problem with a rebate not being credited to me. Since I’ve been using Mr. Rebates, I’ve shopped through the site 21 times and I’ve earned $139.16 in cash rebates. Not bad for 21 purchases.

I used the rebate sites during a bathroom remodel recently. Even though most of the products were available in my local store, I shopped on line and indicated that I would pick up the items at my local store. During the course of my bathroom remodel, I earned cash rebates of almost $80. Not too shabby!
