As you know, Ebates is one of my favorite cash-back shopping websites.  If you’ve never used cash back shopping before, you don’t know what you’re missing.  Today is a great day to try it out though!!!  Today from 2:00-5:00 pm Eastern Time, Ebates is giving us a fun teaser for their Black Friday celebration!  The Ebates Friends and Family Sale is a 3 hour event where they will be doubling cash back at 100 stores.

You can shop for things from beauty products to kids clothing and toys.  This is leading up to the main event on Black Friday where they are going to double cash back on 500 stores!

If you are new to Ebates, here’s how you shop for cash back at Ebates:

1.  Log in or register.

2.  Choose from over 1,500 store where you want to do your shopping and click on it.

3.   You’ll be sent to that website, but Ebates will be tracking your purchase.  Use all of the discount codes available you want!

4.  After you check out, a percentage of your entire purchase will be put into your Ebates account.

5.  Once you’ve earned $5 or more, Ebates will send you a check!


If you’re scratching your head and wondering what “double cash back” means, if you’re shopping at one of the stores featured in today’s sale and they give you 5% cash back, then you’ll end up getting 10% cash back during this sale.  That means that if you spend $50 at a store, you’ll get $5 back in your Ebates account!

My favorite deal:  Piperlime went from 2% cash back to 10%!
