Dear Mamas,

As a mom I learned that the best way to get shopping done is to do it online!!! I don’t know about you but it’s the only way I can get it done lately. I mean moms are already overwhelmed with thinking through every move… To get out of the house sometimes it takes a week planning and still might not be enough time!!! LOL

Because of these reasons we want to share with you a way to earn some money while shopping online. We were skeptical at first but after a lot of research and using it ourselves we are so excited to tell you all about it. We find it’s particularly great for mamas like us because there’s very little effort to be made, and totally worth the 5 minutes it takes to set it up.

As you may know companies such as Old Navy, Sephora and many more, pay “referral” commissions when websites send shoppers to their corporate online store. The website that refers the shopper is paid a percentage of whatever that shopper spends at the online store in the form of a commission, and Ebates is no different in that sense. The main difference is that EBATES shares this commission with YOU!!!

Yes you read it right… When you click on Ebates before shopping at your favorite online store, Ebates shares the commissions with YOU!!!

It’s really simple and here are the few steps to get PAID TO SHOP ONLINE through Ebates:

  1. Go to Ebates (They also have an app so you can shop from your phone)
  2. Click on your favourite store

Here are some of the stores that currently offer cash back to shop online using Ebates (Canada). Each store offers a different % and they go up & down depending on the season, sales, special offers, etc.

3. Go to checkout as usual

4. Get a cheque in the mail from Ebates (Canada)

Make sure to click through the Ebates website before buying anything online. If you don’t you don’t get paid! Simple and Easy

If you shop online like we do, because you don’t have the time to physically go to a store than this is the perfect opportunity for you. And to be honest DO YOU GET PAID to shop at a store? I don’t so this is one more reason for me to use Ebates.

Oh and I almost forgot to mention that in addition to the cash back, they show all the active coupons available, so you don’t have to hunt around online for coupon codes when you checkout.

Here’s a link to Ebates so you can read all about it and start getting paid to shop.
