Hi all.  I hope it's okay to post a link to another website in this forum, because I'd like to share a website I found called eBates (http://www.ebates.com/rf.do?referrerid=JSF3nRyyIcXhku2i0BNUbA%3D%3D).  (The link is hooked up to my referral ID, so if you sign up, I'll get credit.  :)  We all know how awesome referrals are around here!  When you sign up, you have the option of starting off with a $5 credit or selecting from a choice of gift cards.  The only thing you have to do to "get" the credit/gift card is use the site to get to your retailers.


It's a cash back/coupon website that pays you back when you use their site to purchase online from stores such as Barnes and Noble, eBay, Sephora, Wal Mart, and countless other stores (literally like a 1,000).  I was skeptical at first, but I used it to buy some books from Barnes and Noble and received like a dollar back on a $25 purchase.  It's not much, but it does add up!  I bought a new computer and got nearly $22 back on that purchase alone from one of the retailers.  I also added another cell phone line using LetsTalk.com - one of their partners and an authorized cell phone provider dealer - and received $45 back, even though the phone itself was free.  In May, they sent me a PayPal deposit - they can also send checks as well - for all of my savings.  They do not give your e-mail or information out to anyone, and I haven't had any trouble.


I just thought it might be of interest to some of you!  It's a really fantastic site and while it might sound too good to be true, I assure you it's really pragmatic and helpful!

I have been using Ebates for about a year, with no problems at all.
