Earn Money By Shopping August 1, 2014

  I usually don’t do a ton of shopping online but when I do I really enjoy getting a percent of what I spend back. I have just recently just started using Ebates. The only time I have used it was for shopping at Old Navy. In just the couple times I’ve used it I’ve received $4.18 in my paypal account and right now I have $11.16 pending. I received a free $10 because I spent $25 or more before 6/30. So if you like to save money follow the link and please don’t change anything because you also get money for referring people. So start saving with Ebates. If you already use this tell me how much you’ve gotten back.
