I don’t remember if I got an email, or joined direct, but I have been a member of EBates for years. Through EBates, you get a percentage of your purchase online. When it builds up, you get a check.
I once got a check, but I don’t remember to go through EBates, when I make a purchase online. They have a browser button for when you are getting ready to make a purchase online. I don’t like adding too much to my browser.
That little check comes in handy, when you are on fixed income like me. Different stores offer different percentage rates of what you get out of the purchase. To check out EBates, click here
