Earning reward points or airline miles by using your favorite rewards credit card is always a fun way to gain karma to treat yourself to a vacation later on, but what about leveraging cashback portals to earn even more?
Ebates.com currently has 5.5% cashback on all Marriott.com purchases. If you are planning on booking a stay at Marriott in the near future, consider creating your free account at Ebates and using their link to the Marriott.com website first.
Here’s how it works:
- You create your free Ebates account here.
- You browse the Ebates website to check for links to online stores that you want to purchase something at. For example, Marriott.com or Newegg.com. Click on the link to that store through Ebates’s website.
- You make your purchase directly at the merchant’s website (i.e. Marriott.com).
- After your order is confirmed and processed, Ebates receives a commission for the sale. Ebates then in-turn gives you a portion of that back directly as cash to your Ebates account.
- When you have enough cashback stored up in Ebates, you can withdraw the cash to your account via PayPal. Use it to buy more things, or withdraw it to your bank.
Ebates makes it easy to double dip in your rewards/cashback. Happy shopping!
