Ebates is offering increased cash back at a number of stores today in a “Double Cash Back” event that includes 10% cash back at Dell Small Business (Click here to see the full list of double cash back stores). Interestingly, I received a targeted email offer for even more cash back at Dell Small Business — 15% cash back today only.
Just for You targeted cash back
This offer is obviously targeted as being Just for You. I’ve not previously noticed a targeted offer like this from Ebates. The current public cash back rate at Ebates for Dell Small Business is 10% back.
According to CashBackMonitor’s 15-month historical rates, 15% is great. It looks like the cash back rate at Dell Small Business has only met or exceeded 15% twice in the past 15 months.
I happen to be in the market for a new laptop, so this one caught my eye. I was curious as to whether our Laboratory had any results for people who have clicked through Dell Small Business and ultimately purchased via Dell Home or Outlet. I don’t expect that doing so would track properly for cash back purposes, but I was curious as to whether it’s been attempted. Unfortunately, it doesn’t look like we’ve got hard data on that one. If any readers have tried clicking through to Dell Small Business and then purchasing via one of Dell’s other storefronts, I’d love to hear about your experiences.
Other Ebates targeted offers?
This made me look back through my inbox to see if I had other targeted Ebates offers. I didn’t find any previous offers like this. I’m not sure whether this is something new, I was just newly targeted, or Ebates has been doing this for a while and it flew under my radar — but at the very least, it’s worth keeping your eye on your inbox for other targeted Ebates offers. It’ll be interesting to see if and what other offers come out in the coming weeks as we head into the busy shopping season. If you received any other targeted offers today, let us know what they were in the comments.
