Here is some useful info about how cash back websites work. I have highlighted Ebates and Shop at Home. If you would like me to post more info about another site please let me know
Ebates is a cash back website that offers a $5 sign up bonus. What that means is that as soon as you sign up for FREE they give you $5. On Ebates there is a search bar at the top right hand side of the page where you can type in your stores name, ie Gap, Kohls, etc. It will then tell you how much cash back is being offered that current day from that store. Today Gap is offering 2% cash back. If you want to shop click the red button for Shop Now. It will take you to that website and shop as normal. Make sure you checkout from that window. In a few days or so the cash back percentage will be added to your account. If you are going to shop online you mine as well earn some cash back right? Another benefit is that for every friend you refer and makes there first purchase you get another $5. There is also a bonus recruiting even going on refer 3 friends and instead of getting $15 you will get $30! You can also get cool prizes like the Flip Video for 20 friends, Apple Ipad for 50 friends and more.
Shop At Home:
Shop at Home is another great cash back shopping site. T His works almost the same as Ebates. You will also get a sign up bonus for this one of $5. On the top of the main screen is a huge search box where you enter the store name you would like to search. Once you have located the store you click the link and start shopping. The cash back will be awarded to you in just a short time. Shop at Home also offers a referral bonus of $5 for every person that signs up through you and makes there first purchase. You can also print grocery coupons from here as well.
I have stumbled on yet another cash back site called Shopscotch. They offer a $5 sign up bonus and like the other they give you a percentage back on the purchases you make. As I post deals I will try and tell you which of the now 3 cash back sites offers the best percentage at that store.
You can also look for specific items and compare prices from different stores and it will tell you how much cash back you will receive on that one 1 item! I think that is very neat because often times I am looking for a specific item, not a a store. Try this out by typing an item into the search box on there site.
With Shopscotch you can also refer friends and get 10% back on what they purchase. This is a little different from the other CBS(Cash Back Sites) that offer a flat $5 when the other person signs up.
You have to earn $25 to cash out.
