EBates is one of my secrets for saving the most when shopping online.  Any time you are making an online purchase, you should do three things:

  1. Watch for a great sale and seasonal or clearance discounts.
  2. Find a coupon code & if necessary add a filler item to reach the requirements (free shipping, 10% off, $10 off a $25 purchase, etc.).
  3. Use a cash back site like EBates that will give you a percentage of your purchase price back!

One current example of how this can really work to put money back in your pocket is on the Entertainment Book. This is a huge book of coupons for local restaurants and stores. It normally costs around $20 on sale, but right now its on sale for $8.99 with free shipping!


The cashback puts this deal over the edge with 17.5% back from EBates! It’ll be $7.42 for a huge book of discounts when all is said and done.
