I’ve been a member of Ebates since 2000 and have earned over $4,000. They do pay, they have great cashback rates, and they will send you a Big Fat Check (or PayPal deposit, or Amazon gift card) each quarter your cashback earnings are over $5. They offer coupon codes to help drop your out of pocket costs when you shop, and they share info on sales in emails and on their blog. They have frequent increased cashback special offers and they also have two increased cashback merchants of the day (one you’ll find on their website and the other on their Facebook page).
If you’re shopping for Back to School, Ebates is a great cashback site to use! But don’t take my word for it — see for yourself when you join Ebates here!
