I'm a stay at home mom, so how did I earn a paycheck?

Some of you know that I am a stay at home mom to three children.  Truly stay at home, no extra income. 

 But last week, I earned a paycheck... not an employment check, but a SHOPPING CHECK... I've said it before and I'll tell you again in hopes that you can get paid for doing something that I know you are doing.

Insert Ebates.com  Ebates is a website that allows you to earn a percentage of your total shopping purchase when you shop online at stores that they participate with.  It is super easy and does not cost anything to use.  Since I've started using Ebates in 2010, I've earned $60.00.  Now I know that doesn't sound super impressive (I don't do a lot of online shopping) but $60.00 is a huge chunk of money.  Think of it as 1 single drop of Propane (that was a joke) or half of your cable bill.

Ebates Coupons and Cash Back

Imagine if you will... Gemma needs t-ball pants.  I'm going to buy them from Wal-Mart.  I go to Ebates.com, type in Wal-Mart.  I see that they are offering 2% back right now on purchases.  Awesome.  I click on the link, they direct you to the Wal-mart website.  Shop and check out as you normally would with any promo codes, coupons, sales, etc.  In this instance, I would ship it to the store so that I could save on shipping.

In this example, I pay $9.50 to Wal-Mart.  Pick up my pants for free.  Earn 2% back through Ebates.  ($.19)  So this isn't a big spender example, but just a quick easy example of something

The savings add up until it is payday.  They automatically mail you out a check.  You'll forget all about the check until it comes and then you'll be so super duper excited that you got paid to shop.

If you sign up under my link, they'll reward me handsomely and I'll love you forever.
