(Alternate Title: How to Help Heather Pay for her Dental Work)
Mini dental update: Today I have my third appointment at the dentist in three weeks. I had four cavities that needed immediate fillings. So FAR, I’ve racked up over $600 in dental bills between the new patient exam, x-rays, and all the fillings. And one of the cavities was a major ordeal (nerve was exposed), and I will need a root canal eventually. When? Who knows, could be tomorrow, could be ten years from now. *shudder*
Okay, so call me a schemer. Or conniving, or whatever. (Personally, I prefer smart.) But, this deal that I’m going to tell you about helps you get $10, and it just so happens to give me a $10 bonus referral in the process. And it’s unlimited until March 15th! So for every friend that I refer that makes a purchase through Ebates.com, I get $10. If ten friends sign up, that’s a $100 check coming my way! (And $10 each coming your way!). Wow, that could really help lighten my dental load.
First, let’s start with the basics.
What is Ebates.com? It’s a hassle-free way to earn cash back on all your online purchases. You sign in to Ebates, then you shop as you normally would using their links to the stores. Basically, Ebates earns sales commission for every purchase made through their links, and they are sharing a little bit with us. Every quarter, you will get a check in the mail for all the cash back you earned during that period. So, for your first check, you will receive any cash back you earned plus the $10 sign up bonus. The cash back varies from store to store, and can be up to 25% cash back. For example, you can currently earn 6% cash back at Macys.com. That is 6% MORE savings then you would have earned by simply shopping at Macys.com. To browse a list of stores, go here. Thinking of using Turbotax for your taxes? Or do you book tickets through Expedia or Travelocity? Earn cash back while you do!
Is this legitimate? Will I really get a check from Ebates? Yep! You sure will! Remember the Sharebuilder deal I told you about? I just got a big fat check in the mail from Ebates for $25. $20 for the Sharebuilder deal, and a $5 sign up bonus. I got all that in addition to the $50 in free stock. Pretty slick deal.
Why should I sign up through your link? Well, first off, you love me and would like to help me out. And secondly, and probably more importantly for you, you get a $10 sign-up bonus by using my link. The normal sign-up bonus (and the one I received) is only $5.
Okay, I want to help you out (and help myself out in the process). How do I sign up? Glad you asked! There are a couple ways you can sign up. The easiest method, by far, is to go through the following link and enter your email address and password where it says “JOIN NOW.” It literally only takes 15 seconds.
SIGN UP FOR EBATES HERE
**Important: You must use this link to sign up, or else you will only receive the normal $5 sign up bonus, and I won’t receive any referral bonus!**
Are there any restrictions? Yes, as a matter of fact, there are. See below.
- Your friends must sign up on the Double Bonus Offer page and make a qualifying purchase by March 15, 2007
- Qualifying purchases made after March 15, 2007 will be subject to regular Tell-A-Friend terms and conditions with $5 sign up and $5 referral bonuses
Now that I’ve signed up, what do I do? GO SHOP! You will only receive a cash back check (and the bonus) if you actually make an online purchase prior to March 15, 2007. Once you’ve registered, you can just bookmark Ebates.com and go there before you shop online from now on. Oh yeah, and if you could forward this on to anyone who might be interested in saving $$ when they shop online, I’d appreciate it!! Thanks!
