Ebates Mention and Extrabux Co-Founder Interviewed on KABC-7 Los Angeles

December 9, 2008 · 0 comments

I always love to hear about rewards programs in the news, because it helps bring consumers’ attention to the money they could be saving by simply making a few extra clicks.
Yesterday, KABC in Los Angeles did a story on cashback sites (read about it and watch the segment here). I thought it was very well-presented, showing a real consumer who uses rewards programs explaining how much she’s earned in cash back and how easy it was to do it, just a matter of a few extra clicks.
The consumer said that Ebates was her favorite program. I love it, too! Just checked my account and I’ve earned $1,573.24 since I joined, many years ago — and when you sign up for Ebates (aff) they’ll give you a $10 gift card when you make your first purchase through their program. It’s like getting a gift for yourself when you buy something for someone else! :)
The reporter went on to mention that there were other rewards programs out there, and among them is Extrabux. Noah Auerhahn, one of the site’s co-founders and a student at USC, talks about Extrabux and their plans to incorporate cashback, coupons, and product price searches. This is going to be wonderful when it happens — it’ll bring together the best of all 3 money-saving online shopping methods.
I also want to mention to my new site visitors that I do an annual comparison of how much cashback rewards programs offer for specific merchants (because different rewards programs offer different cashback rates) — here’s the 2008 cashback rewards analysis if you want to read it in-depth, but Extrabux did extraordinarily well. They were third overall out of 19 programs I compared, only behind Microsoft’s Live cashback (which doesn’t reward for a lot of big-name merchants) and Citibank’s ThankYou Points (which requires you to be a Citicard holder). You can join Extrabux here (aff) and start earning up to 30% cashback right away…it’s totally free to join.
