The Ebates shopping portal is currently offering Double Cash Back at 500+ Stores for Black Friday Weekend. And, unlike most other portals, they also offer In-Store Cash Back Offers, and “Special Bonus Offer Just for You” deals. The latter are somewhat similar to Amex Offers, with deals like “Get $5 cash bonus at the Gap when you spend $40 or more online”.
In an effort to do get more members signed up and using their service, Ebates is offering existing members $75 for referring 3 people by the end of the year. This promotion has actually been going on since October 1, but you still have a little over a month to recruit your friends and family.
Here is how it works:
- You receive $5 per referral.
- After 3 referrals you get a $60 bonus.
- New members must spend at least $25 through the Ebates portal within a year of signing up to be a qualified referral.
A “qualified referral” is a new member of Ebates referred by you that signs up at Ebates.com during the referral period starting October 1st, 2016 and ending December 31st, 2016 and that complies with the rules set forth below. If a qualified referral makes purchases totaling $25 or more that earn cash back within one year following signing up, Ebates will pay you a $5 “Base Bonus” for each such qualified referral and you will be eligible for an additional one-time “Tier Bonus” for the referral period based on the total number of such qualified referrals you generate and the Tier Bonus table then in effect. You will receive the highest Tier Bonus for which you qualify in the table above. Your Tier Bonus will be added to your Ebates account at the conclusion of this promotion. A qualified referral must be generated using (i) your custom referral link, (ii) the invitation forms on this page or (iii) other methods supplied by Ebates that allow for proper tracking of referrals. The following is a non-exhaustive list of activities that are not permitted and that will disqualify you from earning Bonuses: (i) self-referral, (ii) posting your referral link on any Ebates merchant’s Facebook or forum page, (iii) keyword bidding for the purpose of generating traffic to pages containing your referral link, and (iv) any similar activity determined by Ebates in its sole discretion to be inconsistent with the purpose of the Ebates Tell-A-Friend Program. Ebates decisions are final. You are responsible for any applicable taxes. This 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 at least eighteen (18) years of age.
Toyota Highlander Hybrid Sweepstakes
Each referral will also gain you one entry into their Sweepstakes for a chance to win a Toyota Highlander Hybrid. You can find the full details of that giveaway including the terms here.

|Rakuten||You'll earn $10 after making a qualified purchase through the portal. We'll earn a bonus too (details vary depending upon promotions).||This is one of our two favorite portals (the other being TopCashBack). We love the Rakuten portal because it gives you the option of earning valuable Amex Membership Rewards points instead of cash back!|
