If I were you, I’d let him.
Okay, so Mr. Rebates isn’t really a person — he’s the public face of my favorite cash-back shopping site, which is celebrating its 10th anniversary with a really big prize.
Yep — $10,000 will be given to one lucky member. This giveaway is super-simple to enter: Just sign up as a Mr. Rebates member and visit any page on the site. (I hope you’ll join using my referral link.) You can get one entry per day until Feb. 29 — in other words, up to 23 more chances to win $10k.
Each time you visit, look for things you buy online anyway and see what kinds of rebates are offered. If you’re not familiar with cash-back shopping, here’s how it works:
- You shop at the places you normally visit — Drugstore.com, 1-800-PetMeds, Expedia, Old Navy, Sephora, whatever.
- But rather than go directly to those sites, you visit via Mr. Rebates.
- Mr. Rebates gets a finder’s fee, which it splits with you.
Those rebates run from 1% to 30% of your purchase price. Online coupons, including some exclusive ones, are offered. So is free shipping in many cases.
You can get cash back for everything from baby clothes to rental cars, dating sites to genealogical research, contact lenses to SpaWish certificates, airline tickets to smartphones.
Give it a try — and if you win that $10,000 you’d better come back and tell us about it.
