Free Money for Shopping...YES PLEASE!

OK, so I normally don't post about non-stitching related stuff on my blog. However, I have to make an exception here.  And technically it can be stitching related.

One of my friends sent me a link to a company called Ebates.  I had heard about it before, but never checked it out.  She's been using it for awhile now and gets money back each quarter.  They have over 2,000 stores linked on their site.  The way it works is those stores pay Ebates to bring them customers.  I figured I was doing some online shopping this morning anyway, so why not give it a try.

I signed up for the Ebates site and used their link for 6% cash back from Kohl's.  While I was on the Kohl's site I was still able to use my 20% off coupon as well as my Kohl's rewards when I checked out.  I waited about 1/2 hour and went back to my Ebates account.  Guess what was there waiting for additional $6.48 in cash back rewards!  Yay!!  

The cash back rewards are paid on a quarterly basis.  So everything I purchase using their site between now and June 30th will get paid into my PayPal account on August 15th (you can also get a check, but too many things get lost in the mail here in LV, so I opted for PayPal).  If you're still skeptical, think about it like earning cash back rewards on your credit card.

And the best part for all us crafters... 
Hobby Lobby, JoAnn's and Michael's are all listed on their site!!  :)   
All you have to do to earn money back on your purchases is to link through your account on the Ebates site.  Can it get any easier than that?  And remember, you can still use all your normal coupons just like if you went straight to the store's site.

If you're interested in giving this a try, I've put a button along the right side bar of my page that will take you to the Ebates site where you can sign up.

Until the next time...Happy shopping & earning FREE money!

Editor's Note 6-5-16:
For those of you that may be skeptical, I got my first payment already via PayPal, and here's a photo of it to prove it.

 I wasn't expecting anything until August, but maybe with PayPal they pay out monthly vs. quarterly for checks.  I'll keep an eye on it and see.  :)
