    Get Cash Back on your Purchases! (Big Fish and more!)

    Post by genkicoll on Mon Jan 02, 2012 4:19 pm

    There's a wonderful little site called Ebates that will give you cash back on your purchases at hundreds of online stores:  Wal-mart, Sears, Verizon, Kohls... and Big Fish Games, who offers 5% cash back!

    To earn this cash back, all you have to do is sign up with Ebates HERE (it's free to sign up!) 

    Old, outdated info: The catch?  You have to use the E-bates link to Big Fish before you start your shopping trip, but since you can have FAVORITE stores, it's simple:  Add Big Fish as one of your favorites, then bookmark your MyEbates page.  From there, just remember to start your BF shopping trips from your Ebates page and you'll get cash back!


    NEW:  Ebates now has a Firefox add-on that will pop up (non-invasively) that will help you make sure that you never forget to activate your cash back on a participating website!

    Get the add-on here:
    https://www.ebates.com/button.htm

    I've used Ebates for Sears, E-bay and Big Fish, and Ebates really does deliver.

    So, truth in advertising and all that, by using the link I've provided above, I do get credit for referring you Silly face  If you'd rather not use my referral link, just go to ebates.com ;)

    Thanks, Genki. I'll take a look at the link you provided.

    ETA:

    What a doh! I can be sometimes. I'm already a member and didn't realize it until I tried to sign up. Embarrassed

    With a great sale going on at Big Fish, don't forget to sign in and surf to BF from your Ebates account! 5% cash back is a wonderful thing! DOUBLE cash back for Labor Day weekend is even better!

    If you don't have an Ebates account, here are some easy steps:

    You get cash back by signing up at Ebates. It's simple and painless, and it works great! I've gotten money from them more than once :D

    Here's what to do the first time you go:

    1. Sign up at Ebates by clicking HERE:

    2. Once you're logged in, go to this link:
    http://www.ebates.com/my/favorites.htm

    3. In the drop-down box, choose Games & Toys

    4. Find Big Fish, and click on the gray heart to the left of it. Big Fish is now one of your favorite stores.

    What now?

    Use Ebates' link to surf to Big Fish. They will track your purchases, and send you 5% cash back in something like 3 months. They do not ask for any personal information except to get the money to you. You can give them a PO Box if you'd rather have a check, or they can deposit the money into your PayPal account, and there may be other options as well.

    For future visits:

    To get back to Ebates' Big Fish link easily, simply log in and click on the My Ebates tab, which is at the center, top of the screen.

    Thanks, Genki. I knew about Ebate, but didn't know about the 5% cash back when buying Big Fish games. I should start reaping in the benefits hand over fist now!

    Can somebody enlighten me how ebates works?  I've heard of it around the interwebs, but am unsure how it actually works.  Thanks.

    Thanks for that, Genki.  I checked out their privacy policy, and their privacy policy kind of gave me the heebie jeebies.  The fact that they ignore "Do Not Track" directives and use smart cookies makes me cautious.  What's been your experience using ebates?  Is it worth relinquishing privacy?

    Oh yes!  They have to track so that they can credit you when you make purchases!  I love Ebates, 'cause, well, money talks! Elk grin  You get some money just for signing up, then you have your rebates added on.  I think they send out checks every 3 months; something like that.  Justie and I both didn't use Ebates for several months, and when we went back, we got a welcome back bonus of $10 just for using the service again.

    You don't have to give them personal information unless you want to, but they do need to know where to send the money.  You can link Ebates to your Paypal account or have them mail you a check.  There may be other options, I don't remember Silly face

    It's been a long time since I last remembered to BUMP this topic, but I have some great info to add!

    Ebates now has a Firefox add-on that will pop up (non-invasively) that will help you make sure that you never forget to activate your cash back on a participating website!

    Get the add-on here:
    https://www.ebates.com/button.htm

    I almost never buy from Big Fish anymore, but I use Ebates for multiple other sites, including Sears, Amazon, and Ebay!  Since I first joined up, I've earned $156 cash back, and that's definitely something to be happy about! Happy bounce

    Please see the first post of this thread for information on Ebates if you don't know what it is *points up*
