Halloween is a fun and exciting time of the year for both pets and pet parents! At Petco, not only do we like to dress ourselves in costumes, but we love to dress up our furry friends!



From superheroes and pirates to hula girls and mermaids, we have everything to outfit your dog and even your cat! Not into the full costume? No worries, we have cute accessories that can transform your pet into a clown, angel, devil and more! And if your pet simply refuses to dress up, we also carry fun Halloween themed collars, pet tags and harnesses that can be used year round. At 20% off on, you can't go wrong!


Although Halloween is fun and exciting, it can also be a stressful time for your pets with all the noise and commotion. Here are some important things to keep in mind during the Halloween season:

  • Don't share Halloween candy with your pets. Chocolate is toxic to dogs and cats, and other candy could damage their teeth and overall health. Make sure when the kids come back from trick-or-treating, they put their stash out of paws' reach.
  • Keep your pets at a safe distance from trick-or-treaters. Having a steady stream of strangers on their turf might make pets anxious and unpredictable.
  • As you open and close the door to dish out candy, keep an eye on your dog or cat. Pets can easily slip away in all the commotion and end up lost.
  • If you put a costume on your pet, make sure that nothing about the costume could interfere with his breathing or ability to see. Also, check for and remove      any parts of the costume that could tangle or choke him. And keep on eye on him the whole time - never leave an outfitted pet alone.
  • If you take your dog trick-or-treating with you, make sure that he is on a leash and has the proper ID tags on his collar. You don't want to have to go looking for him, but if he does get lost, tags with your name and phone number make it much more likely that you'll get him back.
  • If you have a black cat, or even a dark gray one, keep close tabs on him during the days and weeks leading up to Halloween. If possible, keep him indoors to prevent him from being the victim of a holiday prank.

Think you know what Mom wants for Mother's Day? The answer might surprise you!SpaDayGiveaway

What Moms want for Mother's Day is often a topic of debate. Some say flowers, and some say jewelry, so is it any surprise that Moms are stating otherwise? Ebates recently polled over 2200 adults and asked them to list what they thought Moms wanted this Mother's Day

According to our poll, women said the number one choice for Moms was a day at the spa, while men ranked flowers as Mom's favorite gift. In addition to a spa day, Moms also want the latest tech gear, with a whopping 30% asking for a tablet or smartphone. We were surprised men and women would answer so differently, but we weren't alone. Who else was surprised by our findings? Try CNET, Huffington Post, and Forbes.  

Because we are all about celebrating Mom, we're giving her what she really wants - a day at the spa! Leave a comment below telling us What you want for Mother's Day, and you'll be entered to win a fabulous day at the spa. On us!

*Spa day equal to $500 Gift Certificate to Spa Finder, or cash. Must be 18 or older to enter.

Fall is upon us and Brides across the country are scrambling to tie up loose ends and make sure that every last detail is perfect for their special day. If you're hosting your nuptials in the crisp fall air, here are some must-have items that you need to know about.  Tell us what your favorite favors are and you could win a $250 Gift Voucher, see details below.

Forget the rose petals, harnessing the natural beauty of fall can make for a much more interesting and unique walk down the isle. Collecting an assortment of colored leaves is easy if you live near trees, but it can be hard to guarantee that the foliage will stay bright. Personalized fall leaves are a better option, as they are made from a high quality silk material that captures the beauty of natural leaves and are guaranteed to look great on the wedding day.


Incorporate the colors and atmosphere of the fall season during the reception. Set the table using fall themed photo coasters, personalize them by adding individualized shots of the Bride & Groom.  They are practical and make for a nice party favor at the end of the night. Maple leaf place card holders are an excellent choice for formal dinner settings and coordinate well with rich table linens in reds or golden yellow.

The fall season is known for its chilly air and is an excellent time for wedding hosts to explore different types of wines that will warm the body and the soul. If your event will have an open bar, provide the bartender with attractive wine cork candles, which keep empty bottles fresh in a chic and truly original way.

chegg_80Wouldn't it be great to save big on your textbooks this semester? We thought so, too! And that's why Chegg is partnering with Ebates to give one lucky student $250 towards their textbooks.

All you have to do is answer one simple question in the comments: How do you save money on textbooks?

Talking about saving is easy enough, right? That's exactly what Chegg does for students: help them save money, save time, and get smarter. 

Save money on your textbooks by renting, buying, and digitally downloading them. Students save up to $500 a year with us! That's enough to go to the movies 45 times... and have enough left over for popcorn.

Ever wish you could easily create a class schedule perfect for sleeping in? How about getting the most free days? Look no further than Chegg Courses. Save time and get the classes you need in the schedule you want.

Who is the most beautiful woman you know?

I bet most of you thought, "My mother." Not only is she radiant, but much of her beauty lies in the way she's raised us to conquer life's challenges and enjoy its rewards.

Mother's Day is when we show the mothers in our lives just how special they are. What better way to express that than with the luxurious gift of beauty? We've picked our most indulgent, yet practical beauty gifts that will make any mother feel as beautiful as we know she is. Plus, tell us about the most beautiful woman you know, and you could win a gift basket of Elizabeth Arden Beauty Products valued at over $350!


If you've watched your mom getting ready to go out, I'm sure you can still recall the scent of the perfume she wore. Pretty Elizabeth Arden captures that emotion and is perfect for day or night. It is a charming, floral, fragrance and the perfect last touch to her beauty routine.

For the busy mother on the go, the Ceramide Gold Capsules Deluxe Set is the best Mother's Day gift. It includes our Ceramide Gold Capsules, little "miracle workers" that are extremely portable and can be applied at any point during the day - even over makeup - for an extra boost of radiance. This comes packed in a quilted gold bag with three travel-size creams and is ready to gift!

Lipstick is a wonderful accessory and an affordable gift. New Ceramide Ultra Lipstick not only comes in 18 shades, from subtle to bold, but it is shown to last for hours, which is important for a busy mom! When she pulls this gorgeous, golden case from her pocket or purse, she'll be sure to feel absolutely beautiful.

Shop now on and you'll also get 10.0% Cash Back and a free 16-Piece Beauty Bag with your $50 purchase when you use code EBATESMOM.

We received hundreds of entries to our Travel Contest, and to say it was tricky finding a winner is an understatement! There were tales of airline mishaps, lost luggage, honeymoon bloopers, surprise engagements, and so much more. Some of your favorite travel destinations include Cancun, Hawaii, and Disney. Despite so many varying stories, one major theme prevailed: you go on vacation to celebrate life's accomplishments. Whether it's a birthday, relationship, or family reunion, taking time to enjoy life is important to you. On this same note we say congratulations to our winner, Jenny. Below is her travel adventure filled with laughter, a few tears, and most importantly, celebration. Congrats to Jenny and a big thank you to everyone who entered!

My craziest vacation was in 2008 when me and 3 of my buddies went to Jacksonville, Fla for a young survivors of breast cancers conference. You see we were all recently diagnosed with advanced breast cancer and were all under 40 years old. So, we all packed up and headed to the conference together not knowing what we were in for, having never traveled together, for that matter never even spent more than one or two hours together at support groups.

I can tell you honestly that I never laughed so much or cried so much in my life. Half the time I would laugh so hard I would pee myself...TMI..sorry!  We ate well, we drank, we learned, we met other women that were just like us, and we finally felt normal. I rode a mechanical bull, and two of us got tattoos (we are not the tattoo type). I saw other womens' mastectomy scars and it made me feel like I could finally get through what I was dealing with.

All in all, the weather sucked, the hotel was ok, but the camaraderie with my girls made that one of my best vacations.

Hey all, since most of you have been asking about the blog naming contest, I just wanted to give a quick heads up to let everybody know where things are at currently.

In Round Two, Ebateable defended its title, receiving a vast majority of the votes. Thanks to all of you who submitted alternate names, but it looks like the public has spoken yet again.

Currently, we are working on a minor cosmetic re-design of the blog as a whole, which will incorporate the new name.

Thanks again to everyone who submitted names, and congratulations to Ebateable for proving yet again that it was, beyond the shadow of a doubt, the public's favorite name.


August 21, 2009

Greetings dear readers, I apologize for the lack of a Free Shipping Friday this week, but we have a chance for you to make money, rather than saving money.

Blog Naming ContestIf you're like me, chances are you feel that we could do a little bit better than "The Ebates Blog" for the name for our blog. After a handful of attempts at brainstorming a name within the office, we decided that the best thing to do was to put the challenge to you, our creative and intelligent users, to come up with a name that really sticks in the ol' brain banana.

So here's your task: between now and September 3rd, come up with the very best possible name you can. When you have what you know is a guaranteed slam dunk solid gold winner, head over to the Blog Naming Competition on our site. Follow the on-screen instructions, and submit your idea. Then come back on September 4th to see if you have been chosen as a finalist, and to vote on what you think should be the new name for the Ebates Blog!

113006blogwiimote_1Oh, the Wii. It's rarer than a Loch Ness Monster sighting. Rarer, even, than a sashimi dinner.

Lots of people want a Wii but simply can't find one. In desperate times like these, it's time to let go of your pride and try your luck at a Wii giveaway. Our friends at Newegg are giving away 2 Wiis! All you have to do is fill out a brief form, and you're entered. The contest starts today and ends on February 22nd.

Be forewarned- playing Wii can be hazardous! As a Kiwi news source said,

Just be careful not to get too carried away, because it's all too easy for the Wii-mote to slip out of a sweaty palm. It comes with a wrist strap but some people have got so carried away the straps have broken and the Wii-mote has gone flying, breaking lamps, dishes and 42-inch plasma TVs.

Nintendo recently issued a recall on Wiimote wrist straps. To order the new, reinforced version, simply fill out this form.

I recommend getting one! Wii Sports really unleashes your inner Rocky.

The $500 Armani Exchange contest is now closed! Come back soon to see the finalists and VOTE!

What's more fun than gossiping about celebrities?100506blogbritneykfed_2

Why, winning a $500 gift card while you do the Ebates' Best Dressed Celeb Couple Contest: Hosted by Armani Exchange! 

We want you to pick the most stylish celebrity couple and write a smart, savvy review on their fashion sense. Tell us why they deserve to be named Ebates' Best Dressed Celeb Couple! Is it Britney and Kevin's penchant for shorts? Reese and Ryan's love of vintage couture?

Keep your words sharp and succinct: 200 words or less! Give us compelling content and we'll pick the finalists. After we narrow it down to the best and brightest, Ebates users will vote on whose fashion critique rings truest!100506blogaxcitysport

Simply leave a comment on this entry with your fashion critique, and you're in the contest! (Be sure to check out the Terms and Conditions first!). Click here to enter.

The deadline to submit your entry is October 19th, 2006!

Back to that $500 gift card from Armani Exchange...think about it! You can buy a hot new fall wardrobe and use your clothes money for more pressing matters: paying your cell phone bill, maybe preordering a Zune (if you feel so inclined)!

Seriously, though, Armani Exchange has some hot looks this season. Grab some skinny jeans, a leather clutch,  a gorgeous wool coat and you're good to go. If you do win the contest, and feel like being philanthropic with your winnings, just remember that your favorite blogger would fit that coat smashingly in a size six. Hey, it gets cold in San Francisco.

September 25, 2006

Last Tuesday, a few of us here at Ebates met in the board room to select the finalists for the Summer Vacation Photo Contest.

Um, excuse me? We had no idea we were giving Cash Back to such an adorable group of folks!  We should make it mandatory that, each time you sign in,  you have to send in a cute picture of your puppy. Or your baby. Or your baby holding puppies. In front of a sandcastle.
Oh, the agony of choice! We went around and around the table:

"But look at the defiance in the kitten's eyes!"
"I think this baby's butt reflects the nuances of the sunset more effectively."
"Hey, there's a watermark on this one that reads ''. That's weird."

Ok, so there were only a couple bogus entries of stock photography. Overall, we received nothing but amazing, cute or funny submissions. We could only pick six, though, and boy are they good.

Congratulations, Vicki! You are Ebates' biggest fan! Blueribbon

We loved Vicki's enthusiastic entry on why she loves Ebates- she may have been skeptical at first, but is now a loyal Ebates shopper! Enjoy your $500 gift card to!

(Don't forget to vote in the Summer Vacation Photo contest- voters have a chance to win a travel prize from Expedia!)

Here is Vicki's winning entry:

I was just sitting at home buying my Christmas gifts and came across Ebates' website. I sat there and started reading all it offered to me...Yes, ME!  It was not for the stores or to win some so-called "FREE" gift card if you go to 60 websites and buy 20 items.  This was actually for MY benefit. It was sooo simple: Just buy what I was going to buy anyways...and get paid!!  I just couldn't believe it.  In the back of my head I was saying "Whats the catch for this website?". So here I go. I started to sign up. Wait, they haven't asked me to buy anything yet? Wait, they haven't asked for my credit card? Whats going on here? Could this be for real? Alright, I'll try and buy something from their website and see what happens...WOW! Nothing was asked of me except from the merchant I was buying from. OK, well let's see if that "Fat Check" really comes. It sure did...and has been coming faithfully ever since. This is the NUMBER ONE EASIEST way to make money on the web...all you do is buy as you normally would, just use EBATES' website....THANKS EBATES!

We had a lot of great entries from Ebates users. Here are some excerpts:

"...I really gush with enthusiasm when I tell someone about EBATES. I feel that if someone is empowered with the knowledge that they can receive money back with the ease and variety that is offered through Ebates, it would be foolish not to give Ebates a try." -Lynn

"Well, I'm getting ready to pass my $500 mark in Ebates cash back!  That's a pretty hefty chunk of change for 3 years of membership. My friends and family tease me because I JUMP to purchase online anything anyone wants just so I can get the Ebate!" -Kelci

"Anyone who doesn't even try Ebates or even take a minute to see if the merchants they shop online with is simply overpaying and cheating themselves.  This is truly a no brainer!" -Cindy

"Ebates centralizes the buying experience and then they (get ready for this!) give you money back on your purchases. And you get to watch the dollars add up and find their way back into your pocket for a change. It's free. It's easy. It's the smart thing to do." -Michelle

"I have to be's biggest fan!  I was skeptical at 1st when I saw the ad saying you'll get 5 or 6% back, but believe me, I have deposited checks into my bank account and this is the real deal!" -Jason

We've got the travel bug here at Ebates! Not only are we running a contest for a cool prize from Viator, but today we launched our  Summer Vacation Photo Contest!

These prizes are big, too- the four best photos win Expedia prizes worth $700, $500, $400, and $300 voter gets a $100 gift card!

Just think of the possiblities: A Vegas vacation, a relaxing's the perfect excuse to take off for a couple days!

Now you're wishing you had been a little more careful about putting your finger in front of the lens back in June, huh? It's ok- Photoshop works miracles. You can just say that flesh-colored blob was an ancient ruin of unknown origin that somehow happened to get in the foreground of your picture.

Choose your photo carefully and good luck!
