PASCO — If you shop online, then you need to sign up for EBATES.com and ShopAtHome.com.
These two sites pay you money back, in the form of a check or credit to your PayPal account, and are trustworthy, secure, and easy to use. Read each of the sites to know when to expect your check.
To keep costs low, EBATES only mails out checks every three months and only when you’ve reached the minimum amount of $5 in your cash back total; ShopAtHome sends out a check once you’ve earned $20 cash back. This DOES NOT mean you lose your money that quarter if you didn’t reach the minimum amount, it simply means the money will carry over to the next quarter.
I use both of these sites and choose to shop with the one who is currently offering the most percent back on the website I currently want to purchase from.
Never miss a local story.
How a transaction works:
Here’s an example of one my online shopping transactions: I found a pair of shoes at Ninewest.com that I wanted to purchase, so I looked on both sites and found that EBATES offered 3.5% back where ShopAtHome offered 4% back. So I went to ShopAtHome.com and signed in to my account. Then I typed “Nine West” into the Search bar at the top of the page. Nine West came up and I clicked the link to read more about the offers/coupons at Nine West.
After seeing that none of the codes fit my needs, I simply clicked “Shop Now” at the top of the screen. A page popped up saying I would be re-directed to Nine West’s site and showed my ticket number. From here, it’s just the main Nine West site. I chose my shoes, checked out, and was done! Now, after my transaction has been completed and I receive my order, my cash back amount will show up on my ShopAtHome account. Once I reach my $20 minimum, they will mail me my check.
Done, and done. Why not get paid when you’re going to shop anyway?! Go to EBATES.com and ShopAtHome.com and create an account, it’s fast and easy, and it pays!
