If shopping is your true love, Ebates is offering the perfect way to celebrate this Valentine’s Day.
On Feb. 14, you can get 14 percent off purchases from various online retailers by going through the Ebates’ website or app to do your shopping. And that 14 percent cash back is on top of any other discounts — such as from shopping a sale or redeeming a coupon code — as well as any cash back that you might earn by paying with a cash-back credit card.
Stores participating in Ebates’ Valentine’s Day promotion include:
- American Eagle
- Barneys New York
- Dick’s Sporting Goods
- IT Cosmetics
- Kate Spade
- New Balance
- Pier 1 Imports
- Saks Off 5th
- Ulta Beauty
How it works
Ebates is a cash-back portal. So, by doing your online shopping through its website or app, you’ll earn cash back — during this promotion and in the future — on purchases from any of more than 2,000 retailers that partner with Ebates.
How is that possible? It’s simple. Ebates receives a commission from retailers for referring online shoppers to those retailers’ websites. Then, Ebates shares that commission with shoppers.
It’s free to sign up for an Ebates account, and it’s free to use the portal.
Ebates is among the oldest and best-known cash-back portals, but it’s not the only one. Others include TopCashback and Swagbucks Shop. Additionally, the free app Ibotta enables you to earn cash back on both online and in-store purchases.
Even if you already have an Ebates account, you might want to check out other cash-back portals because different portals often offer different cash-back percentages for a given retailer.
