Last year, we wrote a piece on Ebates.com about why it should be an essential part of any online shopping that you do. This morning, I logged into Ebates.com and noticed that eBags.com is temporarily offering 12% cash back (normal 6%) on purchases through Ebates! This is in addition to the 25% off offer that eBags has on their main site. This is a great chance to pick up some new luggage, a backpack, or many other travel related items. The 12% Ebates cashback is deposited right into your Paypal account (or paid by check if you choose this option). There are no exclusions. If you’re not using Ebates and shopping online, you’re leaving a lot of cash on the table.
Thrifty Tip #1: New to Ebates? Sign up using this link and start earning cash back. Both Nick and I use this for many online purchases.
Thrifty Tip #2: 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 cash back incentive with Ebates. This is available for both Chrome and Safari, and makes it hard to miss a cash back opportunity.
Just wait, there are more offers to stack! If you have an American Express credit card you should check out your Amex Offers section at the bottom of your online account. They are currently offering $25 off $125! Add that offer to your Amex card and pay with it to save even more!
I was able to take advantage of a similar offer last year by picking up the eBags Professional Slim Laptop Backpack. It has over 3,000 reviews and it goes with me everywhere. After the Ebates 12% cash back offer and the 25% off with free shipping the bag comes to around $50 (The base price of the bag was $98.99).
If you are not familiar with eBags.com, they are a large retailer of luggage, clothing and travel related accessories. I have purchased my last two carry-on bags through the site and I think they do a great job, and they make it easy to take advantage of deals through services like Ebates. It appears this increased offer of 12% at eBags is valid through at least today, so I would jump on this sooner than later.
