The best way to save money while spending is with cash back programs. Getting cash back from shopping online has become easier than ever. There are hundreds of retailers on each site so do not miss a chance to get money back when you shop online. There are quite a few programs out there that offers cash back, but not many of them are really worth the time. I mainly use Ebates it is the first rebate site I started off with.
These apps and sites are great cash back programs that are very user-friendly and does not require much work on your part.
This is the first of three cash back programs I’m using. You can download the app or use the browser. There are many retailers on Ebates and for each store it tells you the cash back offers. Once you have placed your order, your earnings are calculated and will be visible at the top of your account. They also have double cash back offers, where a selection of stores are on rotation to double your savings. You are paid either via check or paypal, the choice is yours. Ebates also have hot deals that you don’t want to miss!!
TopCashBack is one of the United States’ most generous cash back sites. In addition to passing at least 100% of the commission rate that stores pay back to their members, they also provide discount coupons that can be used in conjunction with cash back. They offer cash back for both online and in store shopping. They also offer travel cash back and coupons for thousands of brands.
I joined Ibotta for grocery shopping and so far I like their cash back program. How it work is, you find offers and complete simple tasks, then you shop for your products at participating stores. To redeem your offers, you take a picture of your receipt with your offers. The cash back will be calculated and deposited to your Ibotta account within 24 hours. From there you make a payout. A few more steps than Ebates but just as easy.
Paribus has revolutionized the art of saving. How it works is that within 30 days of any purchase with a receipt stored in your email, they get you the best deals for your purchase after it was made. For the items purchased they continuously compare the change in the prices in real time. Once an eligible claim is detected they reach out to the retailer with a request for a refund on your behalf. If and when Paribus is successful with the claim, the retailer will credit the amount back into your original form of payment. Sweet right?!
