If you make online purchases, check out Ebates, as they are FREE to join and they give you CASH BACK for your purchases. It has a ton of online stores (Victorias Secret, Ebay, JCPenney, etc.) that they affiliate with that will give you cash back. After you sign up, all you have to do is click on the online store in the drop down menu and ebates will direct you to the store. You make your purchase and in a few days, you will see your cash back posted, which can be mailed to you in a check or posted to a Paypal acct. Plus you get a $5 bonus after making your first purchase. Here's a deal going on now that I thought you might be interested in:
::Sign up for a new account with ebates
::Select JCPenney from the drop-down list of stores
::Find something on the JCPenney's website which is a little over $10 and add it to your cart.
::Checkout with promo code GR8DAD to get $10 off your order. (expires June 21)
::Checkout paying only for shipping and taxes (this will be around $5).
::Receive your $5 bonus as a new sign-up with ebates and also receive 4% cash back for your order with ebates
Click here to sign up: http://www.ebates.com/rf.do?referrerid=bvAKGfnTuERF7N/p6T/hQQ%3D%3D
Whenever you are getting ready to place an order online, go to Ebates first and search for the website you're ordering from. More often than not, it will be listed. Just click on the link to the website and place your order.
Within a few days of placing your order, you'll be credited with cash back for a percentage of your purchase. The cash back amount is normally around 4% and while it might seem like a very miniscule amount, for me it is definitely worth a few dollars to go to the trouble of clicking through Ebates to place an order. I've been amazed at how these little amounts add up over time.
Right now, they are offering a great referral program: you can get $10 per sign-up if you refer three new people to Ebates!!
