Reading_letter3_2 We at Ebates love when users take a moment to give us feedback on their Ebates experience. Dylan from Customer Care forwarded the following email this morning and I'm pretty sure the whole office got a case of the warm fuzzies. 

I just want to say that you have a great concept/website. I've made $406 over the years that otherwise I wouldn't have made! It's a pleasure telling people about your site (especially making $5 - but that's not why I tell them). It really makes sense to use you. Keep up the good work!

People, this is exactly why you should not shop online without first starting at Ebates! Even if you only shop online once in a while, the Cash Back really adds up! Did you know we have members who regularly get thousands of dollars in Cash Back? Here's another recent comment we received, this time on the blog from Becky, who runs

I received my Big Fat Check on time (as always!) and I just wanted to say how NICE it is to get something in the mail that's not a bill or junk mail! :) I've been a member for years -- didn't the website used to tell you exactly when you joined? -- anyway, it's been over 6 years since my first Big Fat Check and they've always come in a timely manner, and I've NEVER had a problem with order crediting. I run a website that reviews rewards / rebate programs like Ebates, and if you're in doubt, let me assure you -- Ebates really sets the standard for the rest. Keep up the great work, y'all!

190x143_cratesofchecks4 It's that time again! Tons of Big Fat Checks are on their way to Ebates users, so keep an eye on your mailbox! Remember you must have at least $5.01 in Cash Back (Tell-A-Friend or Sign Up Bonuses don't count towards the $5.01) in your Ebates Account to receive your check this quarter. If you have less than five dollars in your account, don't worry; your Cash Back will roll over to next quarter! For some of you, that means you'll have to do more shopping! I know, the pressure is almost too much, isn't it?

For those of you who are receiving a Big Fat Check this quarter, congratulations! There's nothing like getting free money in the mail.

I'll even let you in on a little secret: Even though I work at Ebates, I didn't get a Big Fat Check for the first two quarters! No, that doesn't mean I wasn't shopping through Ebates. The truth is that I was too lazy to update my home address in my Account Profile! So please, people. Visit your Account Profile now and make sure your mailing address is correct.
