Cash Back shopping sites such as Ebates, Big Crumbs, and Mr. Rebates get paid for sending customers to online merchants. They then share some of that cash with the customers who went through their shopping site to make the purchase. It is a simple process. You log in to the cash back site of your choice and then click through to the online merchant where you want to make a purchase. After you check out you will get a percentage of the purchase price back in your cash back account. These percentages are usually 1% – 7% but they can be even higher.
The cash back shopping sites I prefer are:
Ebates - They currently offer a $5 sign up bonus and have one of the largest selection of merchants to choose from.
Mr. Rebates - They also offer a $5 sign up bonus. They have the best cash back percentage for a lot of merchants.
Big Crumbs - They do not currently offer a bonus but they do have a large amount of merchants to choose from and competitive cash back percentages. You can also check out the BigCrumbs Deals page for great deals that are added on top of the cash back.
Once you sign up for any of these cash back shopping sites you can earn money for referring new users just like I do. Not only can you save a little money on your online purchases you can make a little money as well.
