It’s Big Fat Check Day at Ebates!

Today is the “Big Fat Check” day at Ebates. If you’re not familiar with Ebates, it is a site that allows you to earn cash back for your online purchases. When you are going to shop online, you just log-in to their site, look for the retailer, and click on the link. A “tracking ticket” will be created to track your purchase. The cash back is usually posted to your account within 2-3 days of your purchase. Then, every three months, if you have accumulated $5.01 or more in cash back, you will receive a payment (you can choose to receive it via a check or Paypal). Here is the payment schedule:

You also get a $5 bonus after your first purchase if you sign up using a referral link. (You can access my link through any of the Ebates links on this post).
