Today I earned cash back by shopping at Kohl’s through an Ebates.com link, and discovered how to turn a little shopping into earning some real money from home. Yes, I know that cash back sites are nothing new and they are old news to some, but if you haven’t signed up at any of the cash back sites yet, now is your time to do it, especially if you’re looking for a way to earn extra money from home in your spare time.
Since I recently wrote a couple of posts on buying discounted gift cards, I’m still in that mindset of saving and earning money (who am I kidding, I’m always in that mindset!). Today I needed to buy some shorts and a swimsuit for my soon to be thirteen-year-old son since we are going on vacation soon. I was reading an article online that mentioned Ebates.com as a really good cash back website. I thought I would check it out. In doing so, I noticed that Kohl’s had a 6% cash back reward plus a coupon code that would get me an extra 20% off my purchase. All I had to do was click the Kohl’s link on the Ebates website and Ebates opens what they call a tracking ticket. If you complete a purchase through that link, the store lets Ebates know, and in a few days you will see cash back added to your account. Ebates pays you quarterly either through a check, or PayPal–your choice.
However, if you apply my gift card money-making technique revealed in my Gift Cards Can Make You Money post, coupled with Ebates (as long as a retailer that you have a gift card for is listed on Ebates), you could make some serious part-time money.
For instance, if you purchased a discounted Kohl’s gift card at 12% off face value (being offered right now on giftcardrescue.com), used it to buy sale merchandise on the Kohl’s website that you linked through from the Ebates website (remember the 6% cash back offer by visiting Kohl’s through Ebates link), used a coupon code to get an additional percentage off the sale price (right now there’s a 20% coupon code for Kohl’s which is displayed on the Kohl’s page at Ebates), got free shipping (Kohl’s is offering free shipping on a purchase of $75 or more at the time of this writing), THEN turned around and sold your merchandise on eBay for a profit, you would have yourself a nice little home business. Not only will you be receiving money in your PayPal account after your eBay auctions are over, you’ll receive a nice fat check (or deposit into your PayPal account) from Ebates each and every quarter! Turn around and use your Ebates money to fund your next purchase of discounted gift cards, and start all over again.
