When I was first trying to get out of debt and living on “rice and beans” as Dave Ramsey says, every extra dollar I could save was a small, but exciting victory.
Now that we are debt-free (except the house) things are a bit looser, but the thrill of saving money – especially when I don’t have to work very hard to do it – is still pretty fun.
And like I have talked about before, I see it a little like a snowball that each dollar we can save is a dollar that can be applied to paying off our mortgage early (our next financial goal).
Ebates is a program that I have been using for a couple years now which is best described with a video I did below…
But basically when making an online purchase you visit the Ebates website, and select from the 1000+ online stores and then just make your purchase as normal and you get any where from 1-25% cashback for that purchase. It is completely free and couldn’t be easier to use.
