With Black Friday tomorrow and Cyber Monday coming up, I figure a lot of people are getting ready to scoop up some great deals online for the holidays and for themselves. I prefer online shopping to store shopping just because things get a little crazy out there.
One of the great things about shopping online is there are a bunch of sites that will give you cash back just for shopping through them. Here are some of the ones that I use. I usually check to see which one will give the highest percentage back and then shop through that one.
(Note, these are just the ones that give you cash back from shopping online. There are many other programs that will give you points [or Swagbucks] when you shop through them and then they can be redeemed for gift cards or cash. They’re listed here.)
Upromise markets itself as a way to pay for college, by giving the option to transfer your earnings to pay off your Sallie Mae student loan or a college savings account. In addition to that, you can request a check and get your earnings in cash.

Shopathome gives you access to coupons and money back from online shopping at select stores (and usually has a slightly better percentage back that the other sites). You receive a check when you reach $20.
A full review of Shopathome is coming shortly…
Ebates is the site I see bloggers talking about the most. They also have coupons and they give you cash back via Paypal when you’ve earned $5.01.
