If you shop online you might want to try www.ebates.com. They work with over 900 online stores and give you 1% up ot 10%+ back on your purchase. They mail or deposit your cash back each quarter. I recently received my 1st check. I think they send 1 email/week offering deals of the week. At Christmas time many of the rewards were doubled. Also, if the online store is offering a coupon code, ebates has it there for you already. They do the tracking, you do the buying.

If anyone decides they want to join please PM me so I can PM you my email address. I get $5 cash back for each person that I refer.

can you get rewards for shopping at amazon?  I shop there most often, but mypoints doesn't give points for amazon.  i got fed up with mypoints and started deleting their emails because it took me a year of clicking on emails (plus 1 purchase at avon) to earn a $25 gift card.  not worth the trouble!  Not only that, but i noticed i wasn't getting points for things i clicked on and surveys i completed.  when i sent a complaint, i just got a standard response about waiting a certain amount of time to receive the points.  i never got the points i was supposed to get, so i quit.

bigcrumbs.com offers for both eBay & half.com, but not Amazon.   I do most of my shopping online at eBay and it's worked out well for me. (
http://www.bigcrumbs.com/crumbs/landing.do?r=kayote&s=41423 )  I like it because it gives me cash back, into my PayPal account.  I don't really want gift cards.

I was never impressed at the click on an email.  Too much work & too many clicks per email for no real payoff.  I do surveys at mysurvey.com & try to remember to use BigCrumbs when shopping online. That's the extent for me.
