I can't believe I get paid to shop! 4/5
By SD Tanya
Easy money! Almost includes all stores. Must check every day as the percentage earned can differ from one day to the next. The one drawback I have found is that not every shopping trip is recorded. This has only been recently. If I remember to check and the shopping trip is not recoded, I simply provide the order # and the amount $ spent.
This app is a joke I accumulated $78 worth of Rebates that was suppose to have been mailed out to me in February it is now April and I still haven't gotten my check! I contacted them twice still with no answer. Don't waste your time with this app it gives you nothing!!!
Make extra money! 5/5
I love shopping online vs in stores. Now, I'm getting paid to do it!$$$
You have to pursue the $$$ 2/5
Here’s the deal with Ebates, or at least my experience with Ebates....very often I click through prior to purchasing stuff online. Maybe about 1/3 of the time do I get the percentage back like it claims. The rest of the time I have to appeal for the funds and prove I placed the order with documentation before I get the percentage credited to me. If you ask me, way too much work for pennies. It would be a great program if you didn’t have to make sure they honor their program. I am going to be checking out ibotta after this next quarters check gets issued to me.
New version app - privacy 1/5
Why would Ebates need to use your location at all? It’s creepy that they may be using your location even when the app isn’t open????
Draining your battery is the lesser concern. I’m outta here. Keep your money. My privacy is not for sale.
Good overall 3/5
Ebates is pretty great. I like their promos. They send checks automatically.
My only complaint is referrals amount to nothing. It might be the norm, but after many invitations a friend or two subscribers but doesn’t purchase anything soon after or doesn’t meet some quota and my refer expires? So I stopped embarrassing my self with these referrals. I guess if you already know someone who will meet the criteria immediately and they don’t mind your sales pitch...
great app 4/5
I make over $2000 in 2 years 😊😊😊😊
I have to follow for all the referral cashback bonus. Even we are eligible for bonus but never receive bonus.
No proper action taken on request
Junk, and a Lie 1/5
I never received a single penny from the app. I had items on the list as I was waiting it’s been a year I never got anything this app is either fake, or they are not good at doing there job.
Not crazy about ads 2/5
By Eric Dallas
My advice is to turn off notifications or your going to be bombarded with ads trying to get you to buy crap you don't need to get a rebate.
Really wish the in store cash back would work with Mastercard and not just Visa! Really wanna do in store cash back too but I can’t.
Other then that this is GREAT! Earned $90 back in just a few months. At first I wasn’t into it but now I don’t shop without Ebates! Also love that you get referrals bonuses!
Customer service is also fantastic! Never have a problem with them and the check comes quick.
Cash backs are now investigated after sending proof of purchase? 1/5
I use ebates for while now, over a year now. For purchases that won’t show up I just use the where’s my cash back. But now even sending proofs of purchase by email they said I have to wait until the store tells them I made a purchase?? Ebates use to be good now even if you made purchase online either using the app or web with their extension it won’t add to your cash back even if you send the proof. Fix this issue the review will change. I used this for over year now never been an issue until now. Time to switch to another app.
Somehow functionality is reduced compared to previous versions. 1/5
Took me two days of attempts to pay for something on eBay and woukd no longer open the eBay app. Navigating eBay and moose jaw via Ebates is not possible and extraordinarily frustrating.
Ebates is amazing!!! 5/5
Ebates is a great opportunity to get great savings on almost everything you planned to buy anyways. Signup and take advantage of free savings and cash back chances!!!
Please bring back old green icon 5/5
Edit: Brought back a nice icon, back to 5 star review. Thank you
Old review: I’m tired of apps removing color from the icon and going to just white or black. Until you give us the option to select an icon (you can change icons in ios now) i will leave this as a 1 star rating. Already miss the old green icon.
Where's my cash back?? 1/5
By Tori Nay
I referred a few friends and I know they spent over $25 on several different orders from different places around the holidays cause I seen it for myself and I still never received my $25 from each referral and they never got their $10.. I believe it was all lies for referring just to get more customers.. I will no longer use your app and I’m telling all my friends not to use your fake advertisement too!!
Love this App!! 4/5
By Kim Ohio
I love Ebates and love receiving cash for shopping. The only thing that isn’t clear is when I ordered a laptop and an iPad through it from Best Buy I never received any cash back and am not sure why. Sent an email but never received an answer.
Ok what’s up with the App? 3/5
For the past 3 days I have been unable to pay for for my purchases using the PayPal link. But when I go outside of Ebates I can make the purchase. Please fix this...I’m loosing out on my savings.
Glad customer! 4/5
By CRAC associates
Truth is, I thought this was a big scam. I had logged into the website but thought it looked fishy and didn’t register. Months after my thrifty amazing sister told me about it so I felt comfortable registering. It’s amazing! I have gotten over $80 in 2 months for stuff that I would have bought regardless. The trick is remembering to do it! I still don’t know how Ebates works behind the scenes but I will continue using it!
Great app 5/5
Love the app. Most of the stores I shop at are on ebates.
Good but missing half of the features the full website has 3/5
The app is great, however it needs to integrate with app versions of stores and it also is missing some major features of the full website like VIEWING your favorite stores. It’s a freaking chore to navigate to your favorites all the time.
Started using app and can not access my account anumore 1/5
Can access by app, neither pc. Tried using password recovery, none work. Donnot recommend
So great 5/5
It’s a nice way for us shopaholics, to get money back for money we already spend.
I have brain cancer and have been using Ebates for over a year so that I don’t have to go out shopping and risk getting sick, especially during chemo and radiation. I tell EVERYONE about the magic that is Ebates! It is the best thing I have ever signed up for. It is free and I get money back fir purchases I was making anyway. It doesn’t get better than that!!! Thank you Ebates!
Disappearing rebates 2/5
I decided to give this a try after seeing so many ads for it. It promised a $10 signup bonus. I used the app for 5 purchases. Three of the rebates appeared in my account and two did not. The $10 bonus appeared in my account but after making purchases it mysteriously disappeared and my rebates dropped to $3. Conveniently below the minimum amount they are required to payout. Contacted customer service and received two emails telling me that my query had to be handled by another department. Four days later and customer service seems to be ghosting me. No communication at all now.
Slow in crediting your cash back 3/5
When Ebates came out the cash backs were almost instance.
Also from time to time that was not instance you could get it right away through “Where is my cash back?”
They would credit the money and investigate it later. Now for 90% of my purchases I need to wait sometime even more than a month (when I even forget to check if I ever received the cash back!!)
Initially I introduced this app to a lot of my friends and colleagues. But now I am looking for an alternative app to switch.
Useless and Time Waster 1/5
By User Apple iPhone X
I made nearly 20 purchases with Ebates and it totaled around 50$ in cash back. Guess what happened when “Big Fat Payment” time came. All my money was erased and it was 0 balance and they closed my account. This is the worst experience I have ever had with this crap company. If you people out there want to save money and earn cash back, try TopCashBack, SwagBucks or BeFrugal but Ebates is just a piece of crap that no one likes. I wish if I could rate this piece of junk 0 stars but unfortunately I can’t.
I HAVE A QUESTION?! Does anyone know if you can not just order online but also in the store to buy things, I don’t shop online often! Other than that IM IN LOVE WITH THIS!!!! ITS AMAZING AND YOU GET FREAKING FREE CASH BACK!!! THANK YOU EBATES!!!! I love the EBATES family💰💵💰💵❤️❤️❤️❤️💰💵💰💵💰💵❤️❤️❤️❤️💰💵💰💵💰💵❤️❤️❤️❤️
It really works ! 5/5
I was one of those skeptics but it’s all that it promises! The only time I get mad is when I forget to shop through Ebates because of the money I miss out on!! Love Ebates!!
Earn Cash! 5/5
It's true you order your items from
any store thru Ebates and you'll receive a check thru mail. Every penny counts! Thank you Ebates!
Really impressed 4/5
By New to smurfs
One issue I have is you only take visa and not master card for in store purchases.
By The furious swag
I can’t figure out how to use this. I’ve tried using through apps. I feel like I never get money back. I have a ton of receipts and shop all the time. I would love to get the rewards do I have to go through the app every time I shop. I’m so confused. I don’t find it very user friendly. Would be easier if you can scan receipts.
Ebates is great! 5/5
I almost feel like I'm playing a game. I can't wait to see how much money I have earned on a new transaction. Practically, for doing next to nothing. It's really great and has saved me a lot of money. I also love sharing the site with others. Thanks for the wonderful site!
So far so good. I gave been using the app and getting cash back just like I should be. I read some of the bad reviews below but I have not experienced any of the issues others have experienced. I just wish they had more stores that I usually shop at.
By Snow Bunny345
I’ve had this app for several years and I have earned over $1000!!! Almost everywhere I shop is in this app and the savings really add up! The money gets deposited right into my paypal account. It’s like a gift every few months. I’ve rarely had a problem but the couple of times I did, customer service emailed me right back and fixed the problem. It’s crazy not to use this app!!
Not worth the hassle 1/5
By Illinois 217
Company doesn’t pay you when it’s time much better services out there!
Ebates is allowing me to save! 5/5
Ebates is allowing me to save extra money for my Nifty 50th Birthday excursion this year! I just use the App & Browser on Safari to shop for the things I would buy normally. I wish I knew about this years ago I could have purchased a private island by now! Lol! Either way I’m grateful for the extra cash! Each check puts me $1 closer to the Greek Isles! Thanks Ebates!
—Update from original post— 1/5
By Conversation starter
I was skeptical at first but I tried it anyways, and I love it! I receive checks in the mail off of things that I would have been purchasing anyways. This app gets a hundred stars from me. It even gives me better rates when I go through this app sometimes. 😍
This app is no longer working for me. I’ve contacted Ebates several times regarding the app not recording or showing that I’m using it. Every time I open the app and begin shopping, make a purchase (through app), it doesn’t give me credit and Ebate when contacted and sent proper receipts says it has no record of my purchases. I’m going to delete this app because now it has the same $5 dollar balance from years ago (no way to get it) and it won’t acknowledge my shopping through it, so it’s just taking up space.
Ebates Queen 5/5
I've been using ebates for less than a year and I love it!! Who doesn't love to shop? Now who wouldn't love to get paid to shop?? I've had a great experience so far. I've received my checks before expected and never had a issue with spending the money!
My favorite cash back app 5/5
Easy to use !!!!!!
EBATES is great 4/5
I love this app. I have found items I have been looking for so much faster and been able to compare prices plus earn money when I buy. My only problem is I’m not sure how I get my money that I have earn for shopping on this site.
It’s fake ! 1/5
I have been using Ebates for a while now and I still haven’t gotten any of my cash back....
A Concern member 1/5
By GoodHelp is Hard
I’m A member I never got my money I don’t know how to get it ask I just don’t know how to get up with this company when it time to get paid owed me $17 owed
Love this app and the staff!! I accidentally messed up my email address so u contacted them via email and the response was surprisingly prompt even on a Saturday! And it actually works! Not one of those scams you find everywhere!!
Great app 4/5
Love receiving cash back & it's pretty easy,... But there seems to be a lot of exclusion when you are shopping...
Awesome App 5/5
I have used this for about a year now. And yes you get money for just shopping online from your favorite stores. I also use chrome extension and it alert me when there is a sale. Total must have!!
HUGE Hassle 1/5
I used this once right before Christmas & received a nice rebate from them immediately, so I thought; cool! I’ll use these guys a lot! I have a credit card with Ulta, & another with Kohl’s. Both times I tried using it, the site was a mess! I can’t remember the issue with Ulta; I think they claimed my purchase wasn’t made through their site. Just now, I’m trying to make a purchase with Kohl’s & it’s been ridiculous! It’s locked up twice & Kohls kicked me out of my account saying I hadn’t been using it for awhile & had to re-sign in! I was right in the middle of updating my cart!! Then, it said my password was incorrect but it’s the same password I’ve had with them for years (I know, that’s bad but that’s not the issue here)! I even reset it with the same password!! I go back to shopping & now, because of all this chaos, I added things to my cart I didn’t want. While attempting to compare items to purchase the ones I really wanted, it locked up again!
Ridiculous; this is more trouble than its worth.
3/10: You’re response is exactly what I figured; the problem isn’t with us, it’s them! After spending a ridiculous amount of time with your App trying over & over to make the purchase without it locking up, I used ibotta & while the rebate wasn’t as much, I was able to complete the purchase on one try after cleaning up my cart (your site had put 2 of some of the same items in my cart when I only wanted 1! When I logged in through ibotta, I had over 60 items in my cart when I wanted less than 15!). I received the rebate within an hour of completing the sale. I can email you, but I don’t see why. I didn’t do anything different with them as I did with you & I didn’t have to begin with an empty cart!
LOVE Ebates! 5/5
By IPoll user
I love Ebates! I always check here before I make an online purchase for cash back opportunities. It's so easy to use and I earn cash back on just about everything!
Doesn’t work 1/5
Purchases made through app never show up in my account and am not credited. Waste of time.
