Back to School Cash Back

July 13, 2012

Do you prefer to do your back-to-school shopping online? If so, are you doing that online shopping through Ebates?

Never heard of Ebates? It’s the online portal where you can start your online shopping for most stores, and then you’ll get cash back for a percentage of your purchase. Here is what I’ve written about Ebates in the past:

Most commonly I will shop through In the past few months I have purchased skincare products, shoes, and big-and-tall shirts for my husband via links on Thanks to those purchases I’ve had more than $50 deposited in my PayPal account as my cash back.

Actually, since writing that post earlier this year, I’ve earned close to $65 in cash back for purchases I was going to make anyway!

I’m not quite into the back-to-school mindset yet, because my kids don’t go back until the first week of September. But I know that my cousins who are teachers in the Midwest will be heading back to their classrooms at the end of July. Friends of ours who live in North Carolina are also returning to school early. So if that describes you, you may be primed for some back to school shopping deals. So how does cash back sound?

Right now, via Ebates, you can earn double cash back when you do shopping at the following stores :

  • Amazon
  • J.Crew
  • Kohls
  • Lands End (they have a lifetime guarantee on backpacks there!)
  • Nordstrom
  • Walmart

This is just a small sample of stores offering these deals. There are plenty more on the Ebates back-to-school page.

(Full disclosure: I have links here on Suddenly Frugal to Ebates that allows me to earn $5 each time someone signs up for Ebates for the first time and then goes shopping.)
