If you haven’t used them before, you start at their site (short registration) and then type in the name of the website you want to shop at. Basically, everything is the same after you click on their link. The only difference is that it will track what you spend and give you a percentage back. Super simple! I usually check both sites and see which is paying a higher percentage for the store I want to shop at.
1) You won’t be paid until your total is $5.01 or more.
2) I THINK you also get a $10 gift card to popular stores when you sign up and make your first purchase. I’m not sure of min. amount
I personally prefer Ebates due to the lower payout. They also send out payments 4 times a year. I do a lot of my holiday shopping online, so why not make a little extra cash on things you are purchasing anyway. Last year, my November and December purchases earned me $18.56 back! The other 3 checks were about $6 each.
1) Doesn’t pay out until you hit $20.
2) Once you hit $20, you can request a check.
