Do you know about Ebates? When you sign up through Ebates and shop through their site links, you get 4% of every purchase in cash back from stores you are probably shopping occasionally anyway! PLUS, you will automatically get $5 cash back on your first purchase!

And now is the best possible time to try out Ebates, because right now they are also offering a huge referral bonus. Join Ebates and then refer three people, and you'll get $30 cash back! This is awesome!

Plus, here's another deal to combine with this Ebates offer to make it incredibly sweet:

JCPenney is one of the stores that you can shop in through the Ebates link. Right now, use the code GR8DAD to get $10 off any purchase of $10 or more, plus you'll get your $5 back from Ebates! Purchase something that costs just over $10, and you'll be able to get it for free and the $5 from Ebates will likely cover most or all of your shipping!**

Combining these types of deals is the best way to get things you need for your family free or extremely cheap. Awesome!

Here's how I worked this deal to get something I needed: a new bra!

I went to the Ebates link and clicked on the Stores tab. Then I selected JCPenney. Once inside the JCP site, I selected the Outlet tab and found a bra I liked priced at $11.99. At check-out, I used the code GR8DAD to take of $10. My final transaction looks like this:

Bra price: $11.99 (originally $32!)
Shipping: $4.50
Tax: $.60
Subtotal: $17.09
- $10 promo code:
Total out of pocket: $7.09
Rebates back from Ebates: $5.28
Final cost for this $32 bra, shipped: $1.81!

** Some things to note that I just saw on the Ebates payment information page: Ebates payment checks for purchases made by June 30 will be sent to you on August 15. In order for them to send you a check, you must have at least $5.01 of cash back in your account, which I'm thinking does not include your sign up bonus. So you may have to wait awhile before you accumulate enough rebates in your account before you can get a check, but it will get to you eventually when you keep shopping through the Ebates link when you do your normal online shopping.
