Free lunch bag after ebates

Taste of Home has this lunch bag (Item - # 38066) on clearance for $1.99 (Marked down fom $9.00) and if you use code 1131, you can get shipping for a $1 so the grand old total is $2.99 shipped! My daughter loves bags so I'm going to get this for her.  Plus I might get a few more and fill them with my extra freebies and give them out as gifts or donations.

So where does the free come into this? If you sign up with ebates and then in the search section type in Taste of Home - this will generate a tracking number and take you straight to Taste of Home (must complete the transaction in the new window to get the % back).  You can get 5% back plus a $5 first sign up with purchase bonus.  So after you make your first purchase and get your check from ebates your lunch bag is free and a money maker.  Checks are paid out quarterly and after you have accrued $5.01, so after purchasing this bag and being a first time sign up this will be a $2.11 money maker.

Here's the Math:

Bag = $2.99 shipped
Ebates 5% cash back on $1.99 = 10 cents
$5 sign up/first puchase bonus = $5
First quarter ebates total = $5.10
$5.10 - $2.99 = $2.11 MONEYMAKER

So if you shop online regularly why don't you make some money back, plus ebates is a great place to get online coupon codes too.  They are celebrating their 11th anniversary right now so 19 stores have 11% back e.g. Macys, Old Navy & Gap.  Check out the list here.  The best thing is its so easy!

If you are on the Gap email list check your emails as they have emailed me a mystery code which can get me up to a 40% discount (lowest is 10% - amount will be revealed at checkout), pair that up with the 11% back via ebates and this will be an awesome saving - I need to order some clothes.  I also have an Old Navy card which earns me reward coupons so I'm going to triple stack my savings!

I also love using ebates when I shop at ebay. Yes you can get money back while bidding on your coupons at ebay.  I can't shop online without first checking how much I'll get back from shopping through ebates.
