Cyber Monday, the Monday after Thanksgiving, is traditionally the single biggest day of the year for online shopping, and retailers know it, with one-day-only amazing prices that in many cases will go live at midnight ET tonight.
Cashback sites know it, too, and I’m going to go out on a limb here and make a prediction that the BEST Cyber Monday cashback rates will be at Ebates.
Why? In the past, Ebates’ Cyber Monday promo has been a repeat of their Black Friday promo, with double cash back on hundreds and hundreds of stores, and I feel pretty confident they’ll do it again this year.
On Black Friday 2011, Ebates’ cashback increases included double cashback OR MORE at over 500 stores. I did a lot of rate comparison that day and Ebates’ one-day rates under the Black Friday promo blew everybody else away — even taking into consideration the holiday cash back increases that many of their competitors are doing right now.
So, while my recent highest everyday cashback awards went to Extrabux, ShopAtHome, and MrRebates, the Black Friday winner was definitely Ebates, and if they repeat this promo tomorrow for Black Monday, Ebates will be far and away the winner again… at least for Cyber Monday.
