I'm so excited to have just surpassed the next level for the referral bonus period on Ebates for Oct-Dec 2011. My dashboard says I've referred 52 new members, which will qualify me for the $750 bonus to be paid out on Feb 15th. The next bonus level is for referred 100 new members, and will only a couple weeks left in December there's no way I'll refer another 50 people to make it to the next level. But I'm really excited about the extra $750 I'll be getting! This level can also choose a free ipad 2 with 16 GB memory, but I recently purchased an iPad2, so I'm going to just take the cash.
And remember, the bonus is in addition to the $5 per person that you normally earn. So for the 52 people I've referred, I will earn $260 in regular referral commissions + $750 in bonus money, for a total of $1010. Not bad for simply helping other people save money on their Christmas Shopping! Here's a pic of my dashboard today:

I recently used Ebates to order a few magazine subscriptions for family members for Christmas and got a whopping 52% cash back from Magazines.com. I ordered my husband a subscription for Muscle & Fitness Magazine, which was already discounted. The regular subscription price was $42.97, and I got $22.34 cash back for that order. Then I also ordered a subscription for my mom to the Arizona Highways magazine. The regular price was $24.00, and I got $12.48 in cash back. Not a bad way to save some money on Christmas gifts!
