    Allright guys, I have been lurking in this forum for some time and learned something great. Now is the time for me to pay back to the community. Before I dive in further and I would like to let you know upfront that I will be presenting my referral link BUT you are free to use the non-referral link if you wish. I want to made it clear that this is a legit way of making money and I will provide proofs to show you that I have already been paid by the company. I will be explaining this method clearly so if you really find this useful and appreciate it, please do use my link so I can earn back a little too :)

    So, what is this all about
    We will be introducing others to a cashback site. Some of you may be familiar with it already but some of you may not heard of it. Let me do a brief explanation of how cashback site works. Make sure you read on because this method is not just about getting cashback from your purchase.

    What is a cashback site
    Most of you should be familiar with "affiliate" concept. When a site (affiliate) refers a visitor to an online store to make purchase, the store will pay back some commission to the affiliate. Now think of it this way, these so called cashback site will refer you to online stores to make purchase, the store will pay back a little of their earnings to you. So, you got nothing to lose!

    Here is the cashback site with my ref link: **referral link removed**
    After you clicked the link, upon sign up, make sure you select the $5 bonus so your account will be credited with $5 right away. More info will come later on how you can cash this out.

    Do I have to make any purchase at non-reputable sites?
    You may be wondering if this is a scam and do you have to make big purchase at non-reputable site to get the cashback. Not at all. There are 1,800 cashback stores available and some of the reputable ones are up to 5% back from ebay, up to 7% cashback from amazon, 4% Sephora, 6% Macy's, 1% Newegg, etc. A lot of them are online stores in US but I often use 7% cashback from godaddy because we needed domains for our niche sites anyway. In order to qualify for cashout, you just need to earn minimum of $5.01 from cashback. This is not hard because you may be already purchasing online at many of the stores anyway so you might as well earn by doing what you are already doing.

    Proofs?

    Money earned so far and pending earnings.

    godaddy-cashbacks.jpg
    I needed to buy a lot of domains lately and here are my cashbacks from godaddy lately.

    Method
    If you think that I'm asking you to make a lot of purchase to earn those little cashback, that's not right. Here is the secret formula. From time to time, ebates will be doing referral bonus if you refer this site to your friends, family, anyone. Right now they are doing a bonus offer of $5 for 1st referral, $45 for your second referral, $50 for your 3rd referral. So, by just referring three people, you will get $100.

    Execution
    It sounds simple enough but how can one execute it correctly? If you just use ebates referral form and spam this to thousands of emails, it probably won't work and your mail may go into spam. The correct way to do this is to spend some time and write up a nice tutorial of how this site work and how people are able to get cashbacks from their ordinary purchases. (Just like credit cards, see how many people like to earn cashback through that). I am not going to spoon-feed and show you the exact format, but the important points are, be sincere, use more screenshot or visualguides, don't exaggerate and made it sound like scam, do not spam.

    Execution in detail
    I was planning not to post these before but let me list some of the methods you can try so you get some idea. Before when I joined, most referral bonus are just $5/$10. However, it looks like they are doing more and more big referral bonus these days. It is also a great timing because Black Friday, Cyber Monday, Holiday seasons are around the corner so it will be easier to persuade people to join.

    So, after you have your write ups (article),
    1. Search for some deals, technology blog that offer guest posting and have your article there.
    2. If you have your own blog, you can made a posting about this or have a small banner ad in sidebar to a custom page you made.
    3. Recommended* If you are already selling something on ebay, either physical or virtual item, once you have received the money, follow up with a thank you mail and attach your article as a pdf (simply use word and save as pdf) in the thank you mail thanking them for the purchase and letting them know they can get up to 5% cashback from their purchase.
    4. The method above works for amazon as well.
    5. Recommeded* If you already have an email list that target deals, making money or something relevant, you can include your article in there too.

    Well, I guess that should be enough. I hope this tutorial will help some people out. It won't take an hour to sign up and write a good article. So, stop finding excuses and saying making money online is impossible. Get up and take action!

    Also, feel free to share your own methods too. Be creative and think big!

    Thanks BHW!

    So, your referrals should buy something on the site to get your bonus credited, right?

    Yes,i think they need to buy some item worth 25$ or more ,and then you get that reff bonus
    i tried with this method few month ago, but it didn't work...it is hard to get people to buy something, or to trust some site like that

    I don't agree with ebates being useful when you can make more money cutting them out of the way. The only thing that they do have over you is money used to fool people into thinking they are so great. When you realize that the money you get back is taxable and that sometimes they don't pay you the correct amount in released "cash" back then you would quit using them all together.

    This will be pain then. You will need lots of referrals and if you are lucky few people might want to try out that site.

    Thanks to those who appreciate the post. For those who never read the entire post and tried before commenting, I really have nothing more to say.

    Sorry I missed this important point in the first post. In order for your referral to count as qualify referral, they will have to make qualifying purchases totaling $25.00 or more.

    Bad news: - Getting people to spend that $25
    Good news:
    - They are not spending this on ebates (i.e they don't need to buy anything on ebates). They are spending at reputable sites such as ebay, amazon, hp, toysrus, khols, groupon, living social, etc. They just need to initiate their visit to these sites through ebates.
    - If you are targeting this right using one of my suggested method above, or come out with your own method, it is not that hard. i.e I am doing dropship method from another thread and I am selling on ebay. On my ebay thank you mail, I simply include this introduction to ebates
    - If you have a targeted deal, technology email niche, it's not hard to persuade user to get extra cashback on sites that they are already spending money on.

    That is why I suggest in the initial post that simply enter thousands of emails without target user is useless because your mail will look like spam. Be creative and do some spin, it won't be hard to target those user who are already spending on one of these sites and you are offering them a method to get cashback.

    Mod, if there's anything inappropriate, I do apologize for it. Please edit it for me.

    Thanks for those who tries!

    Doesn't seem hard but how can we easily get people to join? Would have been sweeter if ebates have namecheap and hosting cashback as namecheap is doing a promo for black friday lately.

    It's not so hard if you do not just spam your link across unrelated audience. Read the post above you.
    Ya, too bad it doesn't have namecheap, but it offers cashback from some hosting site like hostgator, ipage, yahoo, bluehost etc.
    You can search for participating stores through their search box :)

    Sorry I missed that post. You are right, the method should be workable. I will give it a try and report back.
    Also, was considering to register bluehost and glad that ebates does offer cashback for that! Thanks!

    I can't see too many people really following through with this and buying something. The site layout itself is pretty much garbage.

    While the method you shared is good and all. You can make more money avoiding the middleman here. Basically you are referring people to Ebates then they are referring people to Amazon and paying you a % of the % they get from Amazon. You'd be better off just getting the full % Ebates is getting from Amazon.

    Yep, I do agree with you that if we are an affiliate of ebay and amazon, we can cut out the middleman and get the full %. However, there are over 1800 stores that partners with ebates and a lot of the stores don't accept small personal affiliates. So, there are cases that we can save more if we purchase through ebates.

    Secondly, the main method here is not just getting cashback through our purchases as it will be too slow. The money making method is referring 3 targeted users that will use ebates and then we will get $100 credited to our account. There will be more bonus as the people you refer grows but just want to show those who can't find a way to make money online that getting money online is not that hard if we try.

    I have been paid by ebates several times and I know that they do pay their affiliates =)

    Anyway, mod has asked me to post affiliate links in the affiliate section so I opened another thread there instead: http://www.blackhatworld.com/blackhat-seo/affiliate-programs/804161-get-paid-5-45-50-per-referral-getting-people-signup-legit-cashback-site.html#post8438064
