Before I dive into this post I want to start off by saying this is NOT sponsored, everything mentioned here is from my own experience. So far I’ve made quite a bit of money just from shopping online (which I do anyways!), and I wanted to share it with others.
I signed up for Ebates back in 2011, but I hardly used it. Over the last year I’ve been using it a lot more. I even installed their extension for Google Chrome, so anytime I’m shopping online it reminds me to activate it to earn cash back. This was a huge issue for me and why I never used it, I always forgot about it, but since I’ve been so active with using it, I’m up to almost $135 lifetime cash back! They send payments every few months, so my checks this year have varied from $20 to even $50 depending on how much online shopping I did.
Since I am huge into planning and buying things at places like eBay, Amazon, and Etsy, earning money for doing what I’m already doing (spending money) is wonderful! It’s seriously amazing. You can even install an app on your phone, which I’ve used here and there as well. My goal for 2018 is to try and use it more to see how much I’d truly make if I was actively using it for an entire year.
