I have been a fan of Rakuten (once Ebates) for ages now. I joined back in 2009, and have earned so much cash back for shopping online. Here is an introduction for you, if you’ve never heard of it before!

Rakuten (once Ebates)
Each week, I feature a new resource that will help you in your endeavors to affordably teach your child at home, or even better – completely FREE! Or, I’ll introduce you to another great website to make it easier to live an abundant life on a not-so-abundant budget. Here’s this week’s pick!
I joined Ebates in October of 2009 after a friend introduced me to it. I’ve been using the site ever since. As of the time of this post update, I STILL use it almost weekly (although it’s now called Rakuten). It’s great, at least I think so! Just try it and see what you think.
The trick is to “stack” sales deals with online coupon codes and your cashback. I’ve used the site to buy everything from diapers to Christmas presents to contact lenses to groceries. I’ve saved a ton of money through this site – even got a few things for FREE by using online coupon codes plus my cashback!
The Trick: Always Remember to Shop Through Rakuten FIRST
When you shop online, always check Rakuten first! By shopping through the Ebates portal, you can earn up to 25% cashback on your purchases! There are so many popular online stores!
If you shop at Walmart, Best Buy, eBay, Staples, Amazon, Groupon, or even subscribe to things like ABCMouse – you’ve GOT to check it out!!!
