Dinner out with cash back
I'm still loving my ebates membership. I booked my flight to Canada through them and earned more money back, I now have more than enough to get my first "Big Fat Payment" check. They also send me daily emails with coupon codes and deals that I can use, plus earn money back on top of it. Then came a resturant.com deal.
I've been eyeing the one for Buhkara Indian Bistro near the Ridegedale Mall, it has excellent Indian food. So when a deal came up, I bought a $10 certificate (to use on an order of $20 or more) for just $1.60. PLUS I got $ .16 back on ebates. That may not seem like a lot of money back but it's a much better rate of return than any of my local banks.
If you want to get in on the deals, sign up for ebates here. Then shop for restaurants in your area and use the code "Spring" at checkout to get it even cheaper. Within a day you should see your first ebates earnings! Always check the fine print in these offers, each deal may have different restrictions.
A dollar or two here and some nickles and dimes here may not seem like a lot of money to go through these hoops. However, if you're going to get these deals anyway, why not earn some money back? Save it up for something fun. And once you've signed up, it's fairly simple to go back and earn more money on your purchases.
