Earn Cashback from Online Shopping - Plus, Earn Money Referring Family & Friends


Do you shop alot? Then I hope you shop online to earn free money, points and/or miles!!!


Thanks to a tip from one of my readers, I found out about a website called www.cashreporter.com. This website lists a comparison of shopping portals and their cashback rewards for online stores. Another site that lists the stores by alphabetical order is http://www.cashbackholic.com. In the past, I have written about Evreward.com, which lists points/miles rewards and the most popular cashback sites (Bigcrumbs, Ebates, MrRebates etc..) with shopping portals, which I absolutely love and use all the time. In my opinion it is much more worthwhile earning points/miles than earning cashback. But for those times that your preferred shopping portal doesn't have your store listed, or when the cashback is 50% more, then I suggest using one of these cashback shopping portals. Or, if you are not interested in travel or hotels this is a good option for you. Beware though, that you don't always receive your cashback, so make sure to take lots of screenshots and read reviews before going through a portal. Don't rely on my research, I always recommend that you do your own. Below, you will find a list of lots of cashback shopping sites with list of stores and reviews. Oh, and I almost forgot to mention that you can earn extra money by referring friends and family! Also, keep in mind that lot's of times you can double dip. This means that you might be able to purchase a gift card through the shopping portal and earn cashback, and then go through the shopping portal to use the gift card for further cashback.

Most Popular Cashback Shopping Sites
1) Ebates.com click here for your $10 Gift Card or $5 sign up bonus. Has Referral Program, up to $10/referral.
2) MrRebates.com click here for your $5 sign up bonus. You get 20% cashback from what your referral purchases.
3) BigCrumbs.com click here to check out this great site with great cashback rewards! They even have forums! You get cashback up to 5 generations of referrals.
4) FatWallet.com is not just a cashback website, but a place to find good deals through their forums. I recently found a great deal on the Fatawallet forum. TMobile was selling a $20 phone with a $12 cashback through BigCrumbs. The phone ended up costing $9.41 with tax. This is an extremely popular cashback website. You receive cashback through PayPal or a check. This is a great place to check out basic coupons and deals for the most popular stores.
5) PennyFul.com is a cashback website that also has a blog that lists deals. The nice thing about this website is that you can see your cashback listed in your account after only a few days after purchase. This is the only one on this list that I haven't tried.

Cashback Donation Shopping Sites
1) www.CashBackPlanet.com
During my research I came across a unique cashback website called www.CashBackPlanet.com. The reason why this site is unique is because you can donate your cashback to a charity of your choice and they will match it by 15%.  If you get your charity to place their link on their website, they will match your donated cashback to them by 20%. Until July, Amazon was awarding cashback through this Shopping Site. They hope to re-establish a relationship with Amazon. A shopper on the site pointed out that she would first purchase an Amazon Gift Certificate and receive 2% cashback and then go through the portal again to spend it for another 2% cashback for a total of 4%, not bad at all. It would be amazing if this option came back. You can either receive your cashback through Paypal, check (minimum $15) or with an Amazon.com E-Gift Card ($5 minimum).
2) www.CafeGive.com


College Savings/Payoff Student Loans Programs

1) Upromise.com 1037 stores College Savings Programs, mostly negative reviews (I agree)
2) Babymint.com I saw this one on the hustlermoneyblog.com and he/she gives her/his referral code; which is 4981677. This is a college savings program or payment of student loan program. After your referral receives $25 in their account; you receive $5 in yours; they use Babymint bucks instead of dollars, but it's the same thing. The three ways to earn Babymint bucks are A)  Retail In-Store & Catalogs- making purchases to certain retailers and purchasing from their catalogs with their credit cards. B) Gift Certificates- up to 5% Rebate C) Online Shopping- they have over 300 stores to choose from.
