Hi everybody, Rick The Cheapskate Broida here with one of my all-time favorite money-saving tools, cash back services.
You probably already have a credit card that gives you back 1% or 2% on nearly everything you buy.
But if you want to Double dip to get even more money back.
Consider using one of these services.
I'm a fan of Be Frugal, Ebates and Top Cash Back, but there are plenty of others.
Having more than one option when you're shopping will let you choose.
Is the service with the best cash back rate.
Once you've signed up, visit the cash back services page, click through to the store you want to shop, then complete your purchase like you normally would.
That's all there is to it.
Just remember, though, that the whole cash back thing happens behind the scenes in your browser.
You won't see any indication of it in your shopping cart.
But you should receive a confirmation email from the cashback service not long after you make your purchase.
Some of these services offer browser toolbars that will im.
Immediately notify you if cash back is available for any given store.
You can then activate the option without the added step of going through the portal first.
In most cases you'll receive your cash back payout in 90 days.
You [SOUND] Usually in the form of a check or Paypal deposit.
So yea this is real money and it does add up.
Even if you save only a few percent here and there, after 3 months you might be looking at a pretty hefty rebate.
I know it almost sounds too good to be true but I've used this service for a year and trust me when I say, they work.
