How To Get An iPad2 For Referring Your Friends To Ebates

One of the greatest things about Ebates is that they reward you for telling your friends and family about them. If you use and love Ebates as much as I do, you will want to tell everyone about it anyway to help them save money on their online shopping.

Just go to the tell-a-friend tab at the top of the website and send an email to your friends and family. The email will contain your very own Ebates referral link that gives you credit when they sign up.

You get $5 for every person that you refer, but the catch is they have to make a purchase of $25 or more earning cash back. Basically, if you refer a friend and they never actually use Ebates to earn cash back, then you will not get credit for the referral. As long as they shop online through the Ebates tracking link and spend at least $25 on their purchase, you will get credit for the referral.

Now for the best part of the tell-a-friend program… There are amazing bonuses if you reach certain numbers of referrals. If you refer 5 friends, you get $75. If you refer 10 friends, you get $150. If you refer 20 friends, you get $300. If you refer 50 friends, you get an iPad2 or $750.

Ebates Referral Bonuses

If you refer hundreds of people, the bonuses range from $1,500 up to $10,000! Chances are you probably would not be able to get more than 50 referrals in the bonus period. You usually get a three month window to qualify for a bonus. The bonuses change each time and seem to get better and better as time goes on.

Now, I have to say that this time around, I would probably opt for the cash instead of the iPad2. With $750, you can take the cash and go buy an iPad and still have some left over.

Holiday shopping time is the perfect time to tell your friends and family about Ebates. Most of them will be shopping online at Ebates partner stores already, so it’s not like you will have to twist their arms to save a few extra bucks. ┬áPlus, Ebates usually gives double cash back at a lot of stores around the holidays, so your friends and family can save even more money on their holiday shopping.

If they are skeptical, just log into your own account and show them how it works. Show them how much money you have saved since you’ve been using Ebates.

In my experience, when I tell people about Ebates, they are usually surprised and really excited about saving extra money. Most people have no idea what cash back shopping is and once you explain it to them, they are usually thrilled about it. The bottom line is that everyone likes saving money.

To recap, by sharing the love and enlightening your friends and family about the wonders of cash back shopping, you can earn some cold hard cash in Ebates’ tell-a-friend program. You can turn around and use it to pay off your holiday shopping bills, or go buy yourself something pretty.

There’s nothing better than teaching someone how to save a few extra bucks and then getting rewarded for it. It’s a win win situation for everyone!

  1. I love the bonus referral programs for Ebates. Right now I’m at 55 referrals for this bonus period with only a few weeks left, so it looks like I’ve qualified for the $750 or iPad 2 level. I’m going to take the cash because I already have an iPad2 (typing on it now). This is the first time I’ve qualified for this high of a bonus, but I think now I’ll set a goal of referring 50 for each 3 month bonus period.

  2. This referral program is crap. I have a ton of referrals in the “signed up” section, but only one in the qualified referral section. People have told me that they spent way more than the minimum $25. I’ve emailed ebates THREE TIMES about this problem. No response at all from them. Nothing.
