Earn Cash Back Christmas Shopping with Ebates

Over the last couple of years, I have completed most of my Christmas shopping online. The crowds, the chaos and the commotion gets to be too much. Plus, with two kids, it is hard to get out to the traditional brick and mortar retail stores.

This year, in addition to shopping online, I began to use Ebates, an online cash back shopping leader. I had heard of Ebates, but like most things, never really paid it too much attention.

It’s quite simple and FREE. Here is how it works! Normally when you shop online, you would go directly to that online retailer’s website. Instead of going directly to their website, you shop that retailer through Ebates and earn cash back on your purchases. Cash back is paid quarterly, and you have the option to receive your cash back via check or PayPal. I chose the PayPal option and have already received payment for some Christmas items I have purchased. Win – Win!

The entire process from signing up to checking out is smooth. It is very intuitive and not clunky. There is also a great variety of retailers offering cash back. My only regret is not signing up sooner!

Do you want to earn cash back? Try Ebates!

I am not quite sure how I have managed to neglect my blog, Tallentale for two months, but I did. And how is tomorrow December 1st? Sigh. So you are probably wondering what we have been doing the last two months? Here goes it!

Late September I celebrated my 35th birthday!

And in the midst of all of these fun family events, we had soccer, football and a bout with the flu!

Now that we’re home and getting settled in (no more traveling), I hope to get back into the groove and not neglect my blog.
