Shop and Save!

Modern Belle Life Save and SaveI love online shopping. More than online shopping, I love to shop and save. But what would you say if I told you I’ve received nearly $700 the last 3 years for doing my shopping online?

Let me introduce you to Ebates!

Most major department stores are included: Nordstrom, Kohl’s, Macy’s, Gap, and SO many more. Online stores like and are partners as well.  In addition to getting money back, Ebates also collects all of the sales, promotions, and discounts for each of their partner stores.

I will admit when I started this years ago, I more than a little skeptical but after getting back $680.00 over the last 3 years, I have to admit I’m a believer.  Here is how it works.

Step 1:  Register at Ebates for an account.

Step 2: Go to Ebates and search for the store you wish to shop at. Or if you install the Ebates Chrome Plugin, you can go directly to the store website.  A pop-up will appear in the top right corner that says “Activate Cash Back”.  The pop-up tells you what percentage you will receive back.  If you click “Activate” you skip Step 3 and it will start with Step 4.

Step 3: Click on the store name.  That will take you to a page that will show the cash back amount and the promos that are available.  Click “Shop Now”

Step 4: When you click on “Shop Now” it will open a tracking ticket and then transfer you to the store website.  Shop and check out like you normally would.  Use only the promo code that you originally clicked on, if you add any additional promo codes it can null and void your rebate.

That is all you have to do to shop and save!  Within a few days, your rebate should show up on “Cash Back Activity” as pending.  Once every 3 months, you’ll get your “Big Fat Payment” as they refer to it.  You can choose to accept payment by a check or PayPal deposit.

If you have any questions let me know, but with Cyber Monday being tomorrow, this is TOO good of a deal to pass by.  Sign up and save!
