Earn while you shop

It's refreshing to read about cash back schemes from retailers, when banks and real estate developers are increasing loan rates and passing the burden to consumers (as I had written in my previous post). Ebates is an online retailer that passes on part of the commission that it earns from retailers and advertisers to consumers. Ebates has over 800 retail stores where customers can shop online and qualify to earn some cash. There is no membership required, no fee to pay, only a valid email id is required. When you want to buy something online, either go through Ebates or download the Moe Money Maker so Moe can remind you. Besides cash back consumers can also get discounts and specials from a host of retailers, such as jcpenney, Old Navy, Eddie Bauer, Neiman Marcus etc. The amount of cash you earn varies from 4% to 25%.
