Ebates is having yet another promotion for new members. I’ve provided an extensive explanation of Ebates HERE.  It is similar to many other shopping portals, and they give you a percentage back on your purchases quarterly by check once you hit the $5 mark. So far since joining I have received $46.23 in cash back and referrals. Right now they are running a promotion that if you sign up and make a purchase within 30 days you get a $10 gift card. You can choose from:

$10 Target Gift Card
$10 Gap Gift Card
$10 iTunes Gift Card
$10 Sephora Gift Card
$10 Beauty.com Gift Card
$10 Office Depot Gift Card
Or you can also get $5 Cash.

You do need to make a purchase through one of their merchants within 30 days to be eligible. Also, here’s the fine print on receiving your gift card bonus:

For gift card bonuses, you must make a qualifying purchase within 30 days of sign up in order to qualify for the gift card. You must earn $3.00 or more in Cash Back before gift card is mailed to your address. Please allow up to six weeks after your qualifying purchase to receive your gift card. Gift cards have no cash value, can not be substituted and are non-replaceable. Ebates is not responsible for lost or damaged gift cards. Limit one gift card per household.

So, basically, you won’t receive your gift card bonus until you accumulate $3 in cash back. One of the easiest ways to earn cash back through ebates is to shop online and choose the “in store” option if you’re planning on buying something at a local store like Best Buy or Sears. Imagine how much cash back you can earn from appliances at Sears, for example!

A possible qualifying purchase at Avon:

There are literally a million things you can buy online to qualify for your bonus gift card. But if you’re having a hard time finding something cheap to get you started, here’s one way to get an eligible purchase at Avon. First sign up for Ebates (Rebates, Cash Back, Discount Coupons, Online Coupons) with your email address. You have to access that page through Internet Explorer, for some reason I don’t get the gift card bonus page to show up in FireFox. Please let them know ayesha_115 AT yahoo.com referred you. Then search under merchants for Avon. Avon and the Avenue are the only two stores listed. Select Avon and a new window will pop up. Search for NATURALS Lip Balm. They are on sale for $.69 (they are actually really great). They come in mango, peach, vanilla and raspberry. You can just put one of these in your cart. At checkout use code FSWER7 for free shipping. You will only pay for the lip balm and tax PLUS you will receive 5% cash back.  Then you can take your sweet time in accumulating $3 cash back, and Ebates will send you the gift card you selected when you signed up.
