How to earn cash back online using Mr. Rebates - Show Outline

The full show notes for this episode are available at https://www.diyinvesting.org/Episode28

What is Mr. Rebates?

How does it work?

  • What I call a "Win-Win-Win"

3 Step Process:

  1. You make a purchase at a retailer's website through your Mr. Rebates affiliate link
  2. The retailer pays Mr. Rebates a commission
  3. Mr. Rebates passes that commission on to you for cash back after taking a small cut. 

Benefits of Using Mr. Rebates to make Online Purchases

  • Earn bonus cash back on top of any cash back you receive from your credit cards
  • My most recent purchase:
    • Received 2% cash back from my credit card
    • Received 5% cash back from Mr. Rebates
    • Total: 7% cash back
  • Membership is Free and you receive a $5.00 bonus added to your account when you make your first purchase. (as of recording date, this may change in the future)

Drawbacks

I have used Mr. Rebates for over a year now testing it out. I wanted to make sure that the website was authentic and worked before recommending it to anyone. Here is my review of the drawbacks. 

  • Doesn't work on every website
    • Thousands of stores are available to use Mr. Rebates on
    • Includes Amazon
    • Yet, there are numerous stores that Mr. Rebates does not work on. You'll have to see what stores Mr. Rebates offers compared to the online stores you shop at. 
  • I have not had a 100% success rate in receiving the cash back.  
    • I'd say my success rate has been about 90%.
    • The other 10% of the time is usually due to my adblocker preventing the tracking link from working.
  • You only earn cash back on the Pre-Tax Pre-Shipping price. 
    • This is your sub-total, not the final total.
    • While credit card purchases will provide cash back on the total, you only earn Mr. Rebates cash back on the Pre-Tax Pre-Shipping price. 

What's in it for me? 

Disclosure: If you sign up and write in my email address the referral email section on the form, "[email protected]" then I will receive a commission when you save money using Mr. Rebates. 

  • Our incentives are aligned:
    • I don't earn any commission for you signing up.
    • I ONLY earn a commission WHEN YOU SAVE MONEY. 
    • Listing me as having referred you will not affect the cash back you receive in any way. 
      • You'll not earn more or less cash back because I referred you. 
    • My goal is to save you money. 
      • I only earn a commission if you actually save money and earn cash back. 
      • I hope you will and I hope you'll save a lot of money by using Mr. Rebates
  • The easiest way to sign up is to click my affiliate link at the top of the show notes of the podcast. Or you can go to www.diyinvesting.org/cashback
