[ Edited ]

I just signed up for ebates now how do I use it?  For example, if I want to order from qvc or llbean do you have to go through the ebates website?

@Squirrel Lover.  The merchant must be a member of the discount website.  You need to go to Ebates and read the rules.

I have used Ebates and it so easy. Sign in and then pick from the gazillion stores that they have. Most every store that you probably shop at is on the list. Pick your store, it will take you to that website and shop as you normally do and whammy your rebate comes quarterly.

Ebates is now named Rakuten!! They dont often have the best rates, but their CS is wonderful!!

Once you get used to using it, try Top Cash Back, Mr Rebates, Extrabux, Be Frugal for better rates.  They all work the same way.

Yes - go to their website or app first - log in, type in the store you want to shop at, and it directs you to that store's website.

@Squirrel Lover 

 

Sign up for all the others mentioned above too!  Before I make a purchase I check each one to see which is offering the highest rebate at that moment for the store I am interested in.  One time I caught a 10% rebate for a store when all the other web sites were only offering between 1-3%!  I got about a $10.00 rebate with the approx. $100.00 purchase I made that day when I caught that 10% offer!

 

And the rebate percentages can change frequently, even during the same day.  So go with which ever one has the best rebate at the moment you are deciding to make your purchase.  Might take a little longer but could be worth it in the end.
