Yesterday Ebates emailed to me a notification that they’re sending a rebate cheque. However, they also indicated that should I choose a gift card from one of their select partners, they would increase the amount up to 15%.
I checked the site and as it turns out, the gift card offering the best return was EXPRESS, which is a store my fiancée really likes – she says it has good sales.
Based on that, I chose the EXPRESS gift card option and turned my $18.65 cash rebate into $21.45! You can see all the options for increasing the rebate below.
As usual, I took the equivalent money and invested it in my Prosper account (a platform for investing in debt notes) where I’m currently enjoying a 10.41% Y/Y return!
Here are all the gift cards you can redeem on Ebates for an additional rebate – NOTE! These are not all the stores on Ebates! Ebates has partnerships with 1,800 stores and at each you can earn cash back sent as a physical cheque.
