Ways to maximize you Ebates cash back

If you want to maximize your savings it’s best to sign up for Ebates’ emails. Every day Ebates has what they’ve dubbed the daily double. A daily double is when the percentage of cash back is double the typical amount. Taking advantage of the daily double is always a great time to maximize your savings. It’s important to keep in mind that there is no guarantee that the percentage back for any store will stay the same. Keep in mind, Ebates is constantly changing their percent back and there are even times when store will stop having a percent back all together.
