Ebates Gets Consumer Reports Nod in ShopSmart Magazine

September 15, 2008 · 1 comment

I’m always happy to see a rewards program get national attention — it helps inform consumers about the benefits of using rewards programs when shopping online — but I’m doubly happy when the object of the publicity is one of my all-time favorite programs, Ebates.com.
Consumer Reports publishes an ad-free magazine about shopping called ShopSmart, and in this month’s edition they named Ebates one of their seven “Sites that can save you thousands.
The review was fair except in saying that they were “immediately inundated with e-mail from the company” after signing up. I’ve been a member for many, many years and would never categorize the handful of emails they send as being “inundated.”
But they were happy with the cashback rates, the selection of merchants, the option for donation to charity, and (my favorite — see the post below) the daily double merchant.
If you’re not an Ebates member, join and judge for yourself! If you’d do so with my link, they’ll give you $10 if you make your first purchase by 9/30, and I’d sure appreciate your support of CompareRewards!

I have been a member of Ebates since 2003 and it is one of my all-time favorites.
They have always credited for any purchase I’ve made – they even send a follow-up email telling you what you earned and that it has been credited to your account.
