Our #1 Black Friday Money Saving Tool: Ebates
When it comes to saving money on Black Friday, there is no better online tool than Ebates. In fact, you can already get cashback at many stores in anticipate of the upcoming Black Friday sales. I used Ebates to save an extra 10% off at J.Crew (in addition to 40% coupon code) just this morning. They already have 2% cashback at Walmart, and up to 6% cashback at Amazon.
Ebates is an online shopping portal that provides cash back to consumers for shopping at over 1,800 of the world’s largest online stores. These include but are not limited to stores such as Amazon, Ebay, Target, Nordstrom, Best Buy & Home Depot. The best part? The service is completely free! Signing up for Ebates is a no brainer, and you get $10 deposited in your account after signing up. I get cashback from most things I buy online, including hotel and flight purchases.
After signing-up, install the Chrome browser extension, and you’ll never miss another deal! Ebates will mail you a check after several purchases.
Thrifty Tip: Download and install the Ebates cash back button here. This will provide a notification on your web browser when shopping on a site that has a cashback incentive with Ebates. This is available for both Chrome and Safari.
Once you sign-up for Ebates, make sure to refer your friends and you’ll get $25 cashback for every one of them that signs up. This is a no brainer and an easy to way to spread the savings! Your friends will thank you.
I’ve already received over $600 in cash back this year on everyday purchases. Once you make several purchases, ebates sends you a check. No games here, Ebates should be in every Thrifty Travelers toolbelt.
