Ebates birthday – 15% cashback coming soon!

Ebates Birthday

Ebates sent out a teaser e-mail this evening about the Ebates Birthday celebration next week. I don’t know about you, but I’m pretty excited!

Before I go further: If you don’t already have an Ebates account, please consider signing up with my link – you’ll get $10.

Past Performance is not an indication of Future Success – But could be!

Last year, Ebates pretty much floored me, so much so that I went big. Last year, was Ebates 16th birthday, and they celebrated by geting 16% off various merchants, including, Staples! That’s right – for a day Staples was 16% cash back!

Preparing for Ebates Birthday Week

Ebates implies a few things — First of all, they recommend that you get their App. I’ve talked in the past, about enhanced cashback via the Ebates app, they also recommend the “cash back button” as a browser add-on. I don’t do that personally… But you never know.

Really this is a great opportunity for any purchases you may need to make.

It’s also a great opportunity if you happen to do reselling via Online Arbitrage (OA), in which case you could really clean up. Last year my Ebates rebate was north of $600 just from a single day of Ebates Birthday – the day they bumped Staples up to 16%. In hindsight, I don’t think I even went as big as I should have. So you can be sure I’ll be looking for going bigger this year! Besides, if Staples were to be 15% this year, that’s 15% + 5x (Ink) + 5% (Staples Rewards) – so 25%! Seems like it could have great potential!

Bottom Line

Be ready! May 9-16th, will be an excellent opportunity to leverage 15% cashback at some of yours (and my) favorite stores! I don’t know about you, but I’ve got my fingers crossed that Staples is on their list once again!

  1. But like most all cash back portals, gift cards at Staples, or most anywhere else, wouldn’t count for their rebates I’m assuming.

    • @Chris – That is likely the case, but, I find that its nice to try to max out the Ink 5x, so going direct never hurts.

    • @bleebz – Well, I do get pretty excited about higher cashback bonuses… Almost as much as I do about award availability.
