Ebates Canada: (NOT) Perfect for those of us who shop online



When I know what I need, I don’t bother going in-store for it, I just go online and order it.

This happens mostly in Sephora, because you get free shipping over $75.

(Unless the store has free online shipping, I ain’t interested.)

I’ve been hearing about Ebates for a while, and seeing it in Canada, I’m pretty excited that I can earn cash back for doing what I normally do anyway.

Anyway, I signed up for it, haven’t used it yet, but I am planning to, once Sephora has its 20% off sale for VIB members.

I’m going to basically stock up on Yu-Be Cream, Korres White Tea Cleanser, Dr. Dennis Grossman Extra Strength Towelettes and things I use on a regular basis that seem to disappear.


I’m also browsing and saw a few other shops like eLuxe with 8% cash back and free shipping on orders over $25, and with up to 2% cash back.

Apparently if I refer 4 friends who also sign up and spend at least $25 online, I’ll get $100 if all 4 do it.

Sounds a little complicated to me to require ALL 4 friends to do it, but no pressure. 🙂

If you were planning on joining anyway, please consider using my referral link.

Otherwise, I hope it helps you figure out a way to get more money back while shopping online other than using traditional methods like coupons and credit cards with rewards points!

I like CIBC Visa Dividend for 1% back in cash if you spend $3000/year, or PC Financial Mastercard for basically the 1% equivalent in PC points to spend, with no spending limit required. They’re the only two credit cards I really use.

I’ll let you know how it works out for me in general (referrals or not), and if it’s worth it.

Am my own Sugar Daddy. Am a millionaire at 36 after getting out of $60K of student debt in 18 months, a little over a decade earlier, using I have worked 50% of my career (taking 1-2 year breaks), and quadrupled my income within 2 years of graduating, going from $65K to $260K with an average lifetime savings rate of 50%. I have 11 side incomes that are on track in 2020 to make me $50K - $75K. I could retire today if I wanted, but love my work-life balance as a freelancing consultant in STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering, Math). I am all about balance - between time and money, and also enjoying my money. I also post daily on Instagram @saverspender.

    FYI Sephora VIB is already over. Unless it comes at a different time in Canada. I love eBates. I’m almost ashamed to admit that I’ve gotten almost $400 back since I joined back in 2004.

      It’s OVER?…. Goddamn.

      Well maybe I can make my things last until I do get a chance to buy something. $400 back it nothing to sneeze at!

      As I said, I don’t mind shopping online for things I am sure of. Otherwise.. it better have free shipping and returns.
