Ebates isn’t exactly a shopping portal on its own. Rather, they give you cash back if you shop through their affiliate links to various websites, including the big-name retailers like Amazon, Best Buy, Kohl’s, Nordstrom, Lowe’s, and many more.
What is an affiliate? It means Ebates get a commission for referring you to merchants you shop from. Then Ebates split that commission with you, paying you a percentage. It’s a win-win-win for everyone involved; merchants get money from you, Ebates get money from the merchants, and you get money from Ebates.
Ebates is affiliated with over 1,500 online stores. While you might not shop from all of them, you sure have a wide range of choices.
Best of all, it’s free to use and you don’t have to pay a thing to Ebates.
