Ebates is the pioneer and leader of online Cash Back Shopping. The company was founded in 1998 by two Deputy District Attorneys in Silicon Valley who used to prosecute online fraud & identity theft before starting Ebates (so you can be sure we are very into secure online transactions!). So go ahead, sign up and start shopping now. Joining Ebates is always free - you'll never pay us anything. And four times a year or more, we'll mail you a Big Fat Check, or transfer the money to your PayPal account if you'd prefer. We can even send the money to your favorite charity. All 100% free.
The $25 referral bonus is only applicable to your first lifetime qualified referral. A qualified referral is a new user to Ebates referred by you who makes a purchase of $25 or more earning cash back. No self-referral allowed and returned purchases do not qualify. Posting messages or links on any Ebates partner stores' Facebook pages or forum pages using your referral links is not allowed and will result in disqualification from the referral bonus program. Keyword bidding for search marketing campaigns is not allowed. To qualify for the bonus, the new member you refer via your custom referral link, the invitation forms on this page or other methods supplied by Ebates that allow for proper tracking of referrals, must make a qualifying purchase of $25+ between 10/1/12 and 12/31/12. Only one bonus level per person awarded, you will receive the highest bonus level for which you qualify. Each qualified referral to Ebates earns $5.00 which is added directly to you Ebates account. The bonus levels as shown above will be added to your account at the conclusion of this promotion. Ebates decisions are final. In the event that the new iPad as described as described above is not available, a similar bonus of equal value will be awarded. You are responsible for any taxes, as applicable by law. Referral Bonus Promotion is open only to individuals who are legal residents of the fifty (50) United States, the District of Columbia or Puerto Rico and are eighteen (18) years of age. You will be contacted within twenty days of the final qualifying purchase date regarding delivery of your bonus.
