Show me the Money!

Living is expensive. 

I am blessed that I am able to stay at home with my two girls, but living off of one income is hard.  That is why I am always on the look out for ways to save money or bring in a little extra cash.  With the holidays coming up, I am looking for even more ways to save money.  That is why Ebates is so freaking awesome.

Ebates is a website where tons of stores coupon codes are listed.  And as an added bonus, you can earn cash back for your purchases at those stores.  The amount you can earn from each store varies, but cash back is cash back!

I am always a bit leery of things, so if this wasn't the real deal, I would not be posting.  But this is legit.  My first PayPal deposit was only for $5.25 because I wasn't that into it.  But after that deposit, I realized how easy it is to utilize Ebates.  I go to the Ebates website and search for the store I want to purchase from.  For example, let's say I wanted to buy an item from  I would go to Ebates and search Target.  When Target comes up, I click on shop now.  Target's website opens up in a new window and I'm lined up to earn 3% cash back on my purchase.  The cash back won't post to your account until after the product ship, but it does post.  In the last two weeks, I have earned $35 in my account and this will be deposited into my PayPal account on November 15th.

Ebates doesn't spam my email inbox either.  They only email me when cash has posted to my account.  And, when you make a purchase you still use your usual payment method.  So not only am I earning cash back from Ebates, I'm still getting my reward points from the credit card companies.  AND, I can still use coupon codes on my purchases if I have them.

So what are you waiting for?  Go sign up for an account here and see for yourself how awesome Ebates is! You will get a sign up bonus that you will receive after you make a qualifying purchase through Ebates.  I know that most of the things I am buying for the Holidays will purchased online-  and I'll take back anything I can get on those purchases!  I promise you will not regret it!


  1. I always wondered it Ebates was a legit operation. I think I might check it out now.

  2. Chanel, we bought our PetMeds through Ebates and not only were the prices good, we got 10% cash back. Matt is addicted to Ebates. He is always searching for the best price/cash back ratio!
