Ebates is a service you should look into right now before you do any more Christmas shopping. If you haven’t heard of it already, you’re in for a treat because it gives you the opportunity to earn cash back on purchases you make at a number of popular retailers.

And we’re not talking about gift cards or in-store credit here; this is cold, hard cash.

Payments are made either by checks mailed out to your physical address, or deposits made directly to your PayPal account. The money you make is yours to spend as you please.

And on top of cash-back earnings, Ebates also offers some pretty nice discounts in the form of coupons, discount deals, and promo codes.

I mean really… If you need me to twist your arm here, I will – but I doubt that’s the case. You’re already about to do a ton of Christmas shopping, so you might as well save some money and get some of what you actually do spend back, right?

From now until 12/31/17, Ebates is giving users $25 for each person they refer who signs up and makes a purchase. The referred person also gets $10, as well. On top of that, you get an entry into a drawing for $50,000 – how nice would that be?

You can sign up and start saving and earning by visiting my referral link. And thank you in advance if you do, because any extra change I can make to give my kiddos a better Christmas this year is greatly appreciated!

There’s also an Android app for Ebates, but I’m hoping you’ll use my link to find it, so I’ve chosen not to link to it here.
