Cash back every time you shop, who wouldn’t love that. The Ebates app is really easy to use. Get $10 just for signing up and making your first purchase within 30 days. How easy is that? With Ebates, you can shop just about anywhere online and get cash back. During the holidays, the cash back percentage is often doubled. From makeup to pictures to flights to shoes, Ebates has it all.
