I have done many things over the past 3 years to save money, spend less, and in general monetize my (at times) woeful material situation. I have experimented with coupon clipping, pay-to-read emails, online surveys, and many a specimen of the weird and rarefied fauna of the online affiliate marketing universe.
I want to share the tip of a program I actually really like, and which has allowed me to earn back money for purchases. It is Ebates, an encyclopedic portal to just about any and every online retailer you can possibly imagine. Need a fire extinguisher? Visit the Ebates site, find one you like and get $1 back for your trouble. Wish to cut down on the inevitable bathroom supply monthly cost? Purchase all shampooing and hygienic needs from drugstore.com, via the Ebates link, and receive not only a cash credit and free shipping from drugstore.com, but also the 2% cash back from Ebates itself.
I am not someone who traditionally shops online, but just by choosing to purchase a few bathroom supplies and a birthday gift through the Ebates portal, I have made back over $10. Absolutely no payment or membership fee required - quite the opposite - by signing up you receive a $10 Target gift card! If you are someone who already loves shopping online, you could easily make back 100s of dollars in a year. Though hardly a get-rich-quick proposition, it's always nice to make back some of what you put out there in the shopping universe.
