Get Paid to Shop Online


We’d like to think that when it comes to saving money, we’re pretty savvy.

We wait for deals, we shop the sales strategically, and we do what we can to make a dollar stretch. It’s just good sense. Why wouldn’t you want to keep more of your money? Plus, there’s nothing quite like the thrill that comes from knowing you scored an amazing deal.

When we first learned about, we were sure it was too good to be true. Free money, just for shopping? We had to know more.

Here’s how Ebates works: Sign up (it’s free!); all you need is an email address. Once you have signed up on the site and chosen a password, you’ll be logged in and on your way to earning cash back from your favourite stores—there are over 650 to choose from, including some of our faves like Old Navy, Sephora, Joe Fresh, and even

Once you settle on the store you’d like to shop at, click the red ‘Shop Now’ button to be taken to that store’s site. And that’s it. Shop as you normally would on the store’s site and Ebates will track your purchases and deposit the cash you earn (up to 30% cash back) into your Ebates account within a few days. You’ll get a cheque in the mail once every three months.

It all works because Ebates partners with stores and receives commission for the sales they send them. Ebates then splits that commission with you in the form of cash back—so it’s a win-win for everyone involved. We’re impressed—that’s a pretty savvy deal.

As a bonus, Ebates starts every new member off with a gift of $10 when you sign up and make your first purchase of $25 or more. They also have an app, so it’s easy to use when you’re on your phone or lounging with your iPad or tablet, enjoying a little retail therapy.

Are you ready to start earning cash back when you shop online? We are. Sign up today and get a $10 bonus.
