NEWS! Ebates - New FREE Gift Card Options for Signing Up with Ebates!



I am sad to say that the $10 Amazon.com Gift Card option is no longer an option when you sign up for Ebates.

I suspected that may be the case so I wrote Ebates for an update and received this email response:

Dear Savvy Shopper,
Thank you for your reply. Sorry for the confusion, Amazon is no longer an option. I was just updated that Target, Home Depot, Magazines.com and Barnes and Noble are the only gift cards currently offered.

Thank you for using Ebates every time you shop online.
Sincerely,
Christopher

It just goes to show that if you see an opportunity you need to jump on it before it gets away.  The other gift card options are very nice, but I just personally preferred the Amazon.com gift card because I think it represents a slightly better value and it can be combined with the FREE $5 Amazon.com gift cards we can get from Swagbucks to get our Amazon.com purchases for FREE or much cheaper.

Remember when you're shopping on-line use one of the shopping portals that pay you Cash Back such as Ebates or ShopAtHome or MrRebates.  You can click on these links and sign up now so you'll have an account when you're ready to shop.  I would suggest signing up with all of them.


You may want to think about picking up a discounted gift card for your favorite store now so you can save on your next instore or online purchase.  

Here are the most well known and popular sites for buying, selling and trading gift cards.  Depending on the merchant you can save any where from 6% up to 30% Off the remaining value on the gift card.  What is also great about these sites is they do not charge you a penny in fees for buying a discounted gift card.  If the gift card has a value of $50 and is selling for $40 then that's all you pay.
