I love shopping for makeup in store. I love being able to swatch eyeshadow palettes and test the formula of new products before purchasing them. It’s like a dream come true for me anytime I enter Ulta or Sephora and I always leave with my hands covered in 20 different shadows and glitters. Seriously, I could never hide makeup shopping from my husband even if I tried. The swatches on my hands tell the truth.
No matter how much I cherish the experience of in store shopping, I can’t always avoid purchasing online. Whether its pickup up exclusive products or simply to take advantage of a killer deal, online shopping can sometimes be the best way to go.

Today I want to share a little secret of mine that I use literally every time I shop online, no matter what I’m shopping for. Ebates is an online tool that allows you to earn cash back just from shopping online. It may sound too good to be true, but trust me, it’s true. Here is my Ebates review and my honest opinion on the program and its benefits.
Ebates partners with hundreds and hundreds of online retailers that offer a percentage of your purchase total back in cash, which they send back to you quarterly.
If you aren’t shopping with Ebates, I highly recommend you start now. There is no catch at all. No hard to understand fine print. You place your order and receive your reward.
Ebates is like a loyalty program that is not retailer specific. Here are some of the most common retailers participating in Ebates:
Shopping is something we all do on a regular basis, so you might as well benefit from it.
New members can sign up here:
Enter your email and create a password. You will use this login information to access your account and activate your offers. You can also check your cash back balance and date of your next “Big Fat Check”
Once you sign up and spend $25 or more, you will receive a $10 bonus. $10 just for shopping online, which you were going to do anyways! Awesome!
Earn Cash Back In Store
Ebates has recently partnered with select retailers to also offer cash back for in-store purchased. While the majority of their retailers remain online exclusive, you can access the In-Store tab on Ebates.com to view retailers currently participating. All you need to do is link your payment method to your Ebates account, click “Link Offer”, and shop away!
So if you are ready to join this amazing program, here’s how you do it:
Ebates has an extension available for your browser that alerts you when you are shopping on a website that is offering cash back. This tool is absolutely amazing and prevents me from missing out on great deals. Sometimes I actually forget to activate my Ebates offer, so this reminder is so helpful.
There is nothing worse than placing an online order and realizing you missed out on getting your money.
Coupon Codes and Special Offers
Along with cash back, Ebates also provides coupon codes and deal alerts for websites. You can stack these coupon codes on top of your cash back offers. I also want to mention that you can still participate in individual loyalty programs while you use Ebates such as Ulta and Sephora.
This really just sweetens the deal. Now when you order makeup online, you can earn Ulta points, use a coupon on your purchase of eligible items, and earn cash back off of the entire purchase.
To make earning cash back even easier, Ebates has an app available in the iTunes App store for IOS and the Google Play Store for android devices. Just launch the app, login, and select your store to shop through Ebates mobile browser and earn.
Hopefully by now you’ve signed up or plan on it once you are done reading this. There really is no point in not participating in this program. I’ve earned almost $300.00 so far, which is really incredible when you think I earned that just by shopping online.
I hope ya’ll take advantage of this program. It really is a winner. If you are already a member of Ebates, leave a comment down below sharing some of your biggest checks or shopping sprees. I am always amazed to find out just how much money some people are earning through Ebates.
