Get Paid to Shop Online

Shopping is something we all do, and some of us even love doing it.  I’m sometimes told that I’m probably the only woman who hates shopping.  However, most of us do, and if we don’t we have to do it anyway, right?  So either way why not get paid to shop online?  Did you know that you can save lots of money when shopping?

You don’t have to do anything hard or complicated in order to save money shopping online.

You will basically get cash back from every item you buy online or even at the grocery store.

Today I am going to share with you some legitimate cash back websites where you can simply use to shop and save money.

Don’t worry you’re not going to shop on shady websites.

You will be saving money shopping at stores like Walmart or Amazon!

Before jumping into cash back sites that pay you to shop, let’s talk about why would they pay you?

Why Cashback Sites Pay You?

Good Question!

Cashback websites use Affiliate marketing as a business model.  They are affiliated with all the big shopping stores.  It means that if you purchase something from the Cashback websites they will earn commissions, and guess what?  You are going to earn a percentage of that commission.  This way you can easily save lots of money while shopping!

Why shop directly from Walmart when you can shop through Walmart using a cashback website?

Obviously not every cash back website out there is legit or good, but you can rest assured that the Cashback sites  I am going to reveal are the best you can find on the internet because I use them.

I made out like a bandit last Christmas.

Let’s begin with my favorite…

1) Ebates

Ebates is one of the best rebate sites out there.  I considered this to be the king of cash back sites because it really works.

All you have to do is use it before you shop at your favorite stores!  Ebates is affiliated with over 1,800 stores, you can expect to earn up to 25% of cash back.  I have been using Ebates for approximately two years, and I have earned almost $500, $490 to be exact. I would have probably made a lot more, but I sometimes forget to log in to Ebates.

However, that has since changed…now I have the free Ebates cash back shopping assistant on my computer.  The automatically pops us when I am on a website and guess what? Ebates will also find you current coupons for that store…more money savings.

All I had to do is shop online, it’s that easy…It’s a win win situation!

I have to say that $490 is not pure cash back earnings as $80 of it came from referral earnings

You get $5 for every friend you refer to Ebates

Now you can save money and also make some easy extra cash when you invite your friends.

2) Ibotta

Ibotta is such an amazing cash back site.  It’s basically a mobile app that focuses more on saving on your groceries.  It’s a very simple to use little app that can really save you lots of money on your weekly shopping trip.  You can save money shopping at many stores such as:

  • Target
  • Walmart
  • Sam’s Club
  • Costco
  • Kroger
  • Publix
  • Baker’s
  • Hy-Vee

Just like Ebates you can also earn some easy extra cash by simply referring your friends to save money online

3)  Top Cash Back

Top Cash back is one of the highest paying Cash Back sites.  They are also partnered with over 3,800 stores!  All you have to do is browse around the site, find your favorite store and start shopping

Once you buy from the stores, your cash back earnings will go to your account and best of all, there is no minimum payout limit and you can cash out through:

  • Paypal
  • Direct Deposit
  • Gift Cards

One thing I love about them is they have such an amazing support team should you encounter any difficulties with their site

Their support team is really helpful and available, but that’s not that the only thing about them, they have:

  • High cashback rates
  • Affiliate with many stores
  • They Pay on time and pretty fast
  • no cash out limit

Yes, Topcashback is worth checking out.

4) Swagbucks

Swagbucks is not mainly a cashback site, it’s basically a reward site where you get paid by doing tasks like:

  • Surveys
  • Playing games
  • Taking offers
  • Answering questions

And one of the best things about Swagbucks is the fact they have a great cash back feature.  Right now, Swagbucks is affiliated with over 3,000 stores. The cashback rates are high.

What I like about Swagbucks you are not limited to earn rebates as there are lots of ways to earn money with it.  For example, you can earn up to $7 for a simple 5 minutes survey!  You can also earn $5 for every friend you refer!

If you want to earn cash back and extra money along the way Swagbucks is your best bet!

There are different ways to cash out with Swagbucks which include

  • Paypal
  • Direct deposits
  • Different gift cards.

The minimum payout Requirement is only $3.

Make Sense

If you love to shop or if you don’t, one thing is for certain you want to save money.  So, I don’t see any reason why you shouldn’t check out at least one of these cash back sites.

My recommendation to you is not get addicted to them and start buying stuff you don’t need just to earn extra cash, you will be wasting money if you do this…so don’t make that mistake or fall into that trap. Buy what you were going to buy anyway.

Have you ever tried a cash back site?

    Interesting to learn about these cashback sites. I gues it is a good way of shopping and earning discounts at the same time. I will give it a try and thanks for the advice on the different sites.

  2. Wow! I had no idea we can get paid for shopping online… I just watched the “Ibotta” video and I find it really cool that you can scan your receipt.
