Start Making Money For Christmas 2010: Volume 3

As Christmas grows near people are running to find the perfect gift at an affordable price. Stores are racing to be the one you choose to shop with in store and online by offering deals. Did you know that you can make money by getting cash back on your purchases? There are sites that offer you a percentage of your total back if you shop at your favorite stores by linking through their website.

Ebates and Big Crumbs are both sites that are setup like an online mall. Once you become a member of either, you can start shopping. With Ebates there are two ways to find the store you want. First you can click on the type of merchandise in the right side bar of the site and it will give you a list of stores that have the category that you are looking for. Next, you can click on the Select A Store menu and look for the store alphabetically. There are major retailers such as: Land's End, eBay, Disney Store, Walmart, Walgreens,  and many more. You also will have access to any coupon codes the retailer currently has. Big Crumbs is also easy to find your desired store. You can click the shop tab at the top and choose the online retailers page or you can enter the store name in the search box that is at the top of the page. Big Crumbs has stores like Lane Bryant, Lego, Walmart, Target, and more.

As you can see they are quite similar websites. I would say belong to both since they are free in case there is a store that you want to shop at that is not listed on one of them and it's listed on the other.

There are many online cash back shopping websites, these are the ones that I use. There is no reason not to use sites like these if you are going to shop online, if you don't then you are cheating yourself out of money.

If you use another site to earn cash back share it with us by leaving a comment below.
