i want to give these giftcards away!

what it is?
ebates pays you for shopping online. you can receive on average 1-4% cash back simply by clicking through this site to get to the store site. 

how does it work for me?
basically, i use ebates whenever i can. i don't do a ton of online shopping other than on amazon.com and ebates unfortunately doesn't offer any cashback for amazon (darn!). however, i do occasionally purchase things from target.com, gap.com or somewhere else. i've also recently noticed that they link to a lot of airfare websites, so i'm definitely going to use ebates the next time i buy plane tickets! when i hear of a good online deal or decide to order online, i simply go to ebates first, search for the store i'm using, and click on their link.

this creates a "ticket." after i complete my order, ebates processes my cashback-it's that easy!

disclaimer: ebates only processes payment 4 times per year and you have to have over $5.00 (not including your sign-up bonus) accrued before you get paid.

where's the proof?
while i love getting that extra rebate, i still don't shop online a lot, so the pay off isn't as big for me. but i never refuse free money! i've earned $49.76 since june 2009.

another note: shopathome.com is a similar website. i also have an account here, but i prefer ebates by far. shop at home requires $20 in earnings before they pay although they do pay monthly if you've reached over $20.
