Cash-Back Websites

If you aren't familiar with cash-back websites let me give you a quick explanation on how they work.
1. Sign up for a free account.
2. Find your favorite retailers (there are so many to choose from).
3. Click to the retailers website through the cash-back website.
4. Shop and receive cash back. 

That's it! Keep in mind, you don't receive instant cash back. Each site works differently so be sure to read the details below on each site.

You may have heard of eBates which has been around for quite some time now. I recently started using the site, but I do know many people who have been using it for a long time now and use it on an everyday basis. When you shop through eBates your cash-back accumulates in your account. After several months a check with be mailed to you reflecting the total amount earned during that period. It's an amazing idea and a great way to "save" a little money - that can be used for more shopping of course! You can sign up for eBates here.

There is also a new cash-back website called Blastoff Network. Cash-back checks from this site are cut on the 15th of every month as long as your account has reached at least $20. They also have "Blastoff Bucks" which you can earn by inviting friends, rating retailers, and by a few other means. These bucks can be spent on certain items at the retailers affiliated with their site. I'm not familiar with all of the details of the Blastoff Bucks program so you will have to check their website for more information. You can sign up for Blastoff Network here.

If you are a frequent or even occasional online shopper then these sites are a must. They are also a must for any budget shopper or someone who needs to spend less and/or save money. Who doesn't? So head over to eBates and Blastoff Network to sign up and start receiving cash-back on your every day purchases!
