ebates / swagbucks?
« on: February 07, 2018, 07:32:01 AM »
Has anyone used these? I'm skeptical but keep seeing the ebates commercial where people are saying "I just saved money on something I was going to buy anyway!"

I’ve used them both for a while.  There won’t be a ton of savings, but I still find it worthwhile.

I get a little back from Ebates but I don't shop online often anymore. It is nice now that they use PayPal, I lost a check once because it was sent to the wrong address. Never tried Swagbucks. I use ibotta and checkout 51 a lot for groceries.

Love ebates! However it's a rebate. So a "the more you spend the more you save." (Lol). It's free money though if you are buying stuff.

If you'd like to use a referral code, let me drop this one :)

Swag bucks I used to do pretty well on $50. But I used about an hour a day.  Now I get a few cents a week. It helps if you have devices you can run videos on or time to do surveys.
Again...

Agree with Ibotta, though I no longer have it installed since husband does the shopping. I don't like like checkout 51. Not enough things I buy it's taken me 6 months to redeem $20. I like Mobisave, they PayPal you with no minimum, a few cents at a time.

I also use Ebates (back from when it was FatWallet).  Apparently I've gotten $163 in cashback over my lifetime!  I always check if something I'm buying online has a rebate from there.  This past summer I had to buy a bunch of gifts to take to India, and found these gift sets from Body Shop for a huge discount, free shipping, plus a higher-than-usual 6% cashback from Ebates!
I have a new journal.

I use Ebates. Simple to use and the rebates do add up. Always check to see if there is a rebate available prior to ordering online.

I've used ebates for a few things. Most of our online shopping is through Amazon but I also do some reselling on Amazon and I've purchased a few things with ebates links that I've later resold. Usually it's only 1-2% but every little bit helps and it doesn't take but a few seconds to click the link first. I did just purchase a laptop but I'm not sure if the ebates link worked since it was also through a corporate discount through my company. Would be pretty nice if it does as it was about $750 so even 1% would be $7.50.

Referral code if you're interested. Spend at least $25 and you'll get $10 free (and I'll get $15). I used a code from someone when I first started so I was able to immediately get a check (minimum disbursement is $5) after my first purchase through it.
