$800 in pending cash back rebates from referrals

Cash Back Rebates
My pending cash back rebates, 99% from referrals, is more than $800 in pending rebates!

I just wanted to update how my passive income from cash back referral programs in increasing slowly each month.  Right now I have more than $800 in pending rebates available in my Mr Rebates account.  These "pending" rebates will be paid out over the next 90 days.    I usually request my "available" cash back at the end of the month each month and they pay it out to me on the 1st.  This "availabe" amount will slowly increase as the month goes on because each day a little bit of the "pending" money moves over to the "availabe" money.   Once the purchase is 90 days old it moves from "pending" to "available".  Why the wait?  To make sure the customer didn't buy something, collect a cash back on the item, then return the item.  The 90 days is longer than most return policies so this eliminates this type of fraud.

A few months back I was very excited about my "pending" amount breaking the $500 barrier, and now it's more than $800.  Soon this passive income stream will be paying me more than $300 per month!  How is this passive for me?  Once I refer a new member to Mr Rebates I get a bonus every time they earn cash back - for the life of their account.  So every time they shop, I earn money too!  How great is that?  If you can refer people who do a lot of shopping online, this can be a great revenue source for you.

$59.40 in Referral Bonus from one referral's purchase

Referral Income from Mr Rebates
Here's a screen shot from my Mr Rebates cash back account, showing some of my recent cash back earning from referral bonuses.  This is from other people shopping online.  I referred them to Mr Rebates, so I get a 20% referral bonus every time they shop online and they earn cash back rebates from Mr Rebates.    My referral bonus is paid from Mr Rebates, NOT out of the shopper's cash back.  They earn the same cash back amount whether someone referred them or not.

I love it when I get a large chunk of cash back from someone's online shopping order.  Look at some of the big cash back amounts I've earned recently.  $56.91 on 3/20/2012, $59.40 on 3/14/2012, and $24.20 on the 13th.  If I'm getting this much in referral cash back, that means the shopper is getting $284.55, $297, and $121, respectively.  That's a lot of cash back on one purchase!

What's great about the Mr Rebates cash back program is you earn referral rebates for the lifetime of the shopper's online account.  So each time they use Mr Rebate's to shop online and earn cash back, you earn cash back too!  As you continue to refer more and more people to the program, your monthly earnings from referrals should continue to grow because you are earning not only from the new shoppers, but also from the people you referred months ago who are still shopping online.  How great is that?

Free Ways to Make Money Online From Home

I'm starting a new Facebook page called Free Ways to Make Money Online from Home.  The reason I'm using facebook for this is that sometimes it's easier to get traffic to a page on facebook, where millions of users already are every day, rather than try to get them to find my blog among the millions of other pages on the internet.

On my new facebook page, I'll be discussing my most successful FREE ways that I make money online from home, including one of my favorites, cash back website referral programs.

Here's some of my earning to my Paypal account lately.  These are all from FREE sources.  I have other earnings too, but they are paid directly to my bank account through ACH, so I won't be sharing any screenshots of those, however I'll still be discussing them.

Ebates just Paid me $1073.07

I just received my quarterly payment from Ebates, which includes my referral bonus for the time period of Oct - Dec 2011, which I earned a $750 bonus for referring more than 50 people to Ebates.  Of this $1073.07, only $38.07 was from my own personal shopping.  The rest was from referrals and referral bonuses.  Here's an updated screenshot of all my cash back payments I received from Ebates in the last 14 months.  If you want to start earning cash back on all your online shopping, plus save money by using online coupon codes, then join Ebates here.  You'll then be able to participate in the referral program like I do, and start earning referral bonuses like this.

Mr Rebates just paid me $560.90

Ah, the first of the month!  The magic day when I receive my Mr Rebates cash back money.  Most of this money if from my referral bonus earnings, which is the referral bonuses I earn when someone whom I have referred to Mr Rebates makes an online purchase earning themselves cash back.  Then I get an additional 20% of the amount of cash back they received.  My 20% is paid from Mr Rebates' pocket, not from my referral.  They still get the entire amount of cash back as stated on the Mr Rebates website for the store they were shopping at on that day.

I didn't request any money in November or December 2011, so this is actually Nov, Dec, and January's available cash back (after the standard 90 day hold period).  Even though it's three months worth of referral rebates I still really happy with the amount!  That's more than I made in all of 2011.

And even after receiving this payment my pending balance is still over $500, which means I'll be paid another $500 in the next 90 days.  And my earning just continue to grow as I refer more and more new shoppers to the Mr Rebates program.

Then join their referral program and start earning cash back bonuses when you refer new shoppers and they get cash back too!

Mr Rebates 2011 Referral Wrap Up

2011 Mr Rebates Referral Commissions per Month Earned

Here's a nice little summary of the number of new referrals I made in 2011 to the Mr Rebates cash back website.  It also showing the amount of referral commissions I earned per month.  My total referral commission earned for 2011 was $1313.04.  This is only my referral commissions, it does not include any of my own cash back rebates I've received for my personal or business online shopping.

I've entered the data in the month it was earned, then it sits as pending for 90 prior to being able to be paid out to me.  So the numbers for earning correlate with payments 90 days later.  Although sometimes I don't request the cash back to be paid out right away when it's available.

What I like about the Mr Rebates Referral program is that once you refer a new member, you continue to earn referral bonuses every time that new member shops online through Mr Rebates.  As opposed to the way Ebates pays their referrals bonuses ($5 after the shopper makes their first $25 purchase), I like this referral model much better.  I am still earning commission today from someone that I referred back in 2009.  If you are lucky enough to sign up someone who shops online A LOT, then you can earn a lot of referral commissions from that one shopper.

Also, over time, as you refer more and more people, your commissions should continue to increase per month, just from the numbers standpoint.  For example, if about 20% of your referrals place an order a month, and you have 100 referrals, then you'll earn commission on about 20 different orders.  But now fast forward a few years and let's say you now have 500 referrals under your account.  If you still average about 20% of those people ordering something that month, now you are earning commissions on about 100 different purchases.

I'm not sure what my average number of referral purchases is per month in comparison to how many referrals I have, but maybe I'll make a chart for that too.  It would be nice to use for goal setting purposes.
