Check Is In The Mail


Do you know about eBates.com?  If not, you should.  Say, for instance, you are ordering something from an online retailer such as Nordstrom, Barnes & Noble, Target, even eBay (there are over 1,200 stores) you first sign in to the eBates.com website then choose the site where you want to shop.  A new screen with an eBates ticket number opens up that directs you to your intended site.  With every purchase you receive a percentage of your shopping total that is placed in your eBates account.  The percentages vary per site but usually range within 3% - 10% of your purchase amount.  Once a quarter eBates either sends you a check for the amount you accumulated that quarter or makes a deposit into your PayPal account.  I've been a eBates member for about a year and have earned $165.00.  That's it.  Seriously.  They do have a refer a friend program that if you refer someone you earn $5.00 in your account.  Here is my refer-a-friend link if you'd like to join:


That really isn't why I'm writing about this though.  I was about to order something on eBay, remembered eBates then thought it would be a good "Helpful Hint from Heloise" sort of thing to tell you about.  I actually saw Heloise speak one time.  I thought she was a hag.  All she wanted to do is talk about herself which was not helpful at all.
