Are you ready for the holiday shopping rush?  For many, the biggest issue is how much to spend or how to save money for that matter.  A Ruskin woman says she has made more than $2,100 on making online purchases! From outside to inside, pretty much everything Becky Fox has, came from a retail store on

“I bought household appliances, all my cooking supplies, shirts, bathroom supplies, vanities, everything can be bought and you get money back," said Fox.

Here’s how it works.  The customer goes to and you sign up with your email address or your Facebook profile.  Once you’re on, search for the store you want to shop at. Click on that store and Ebates does the rest, giving you a percentage of the purchase shown for that store.

For example: You go through and get on Walmart’s website. On that day, Ebates is giving 3% cash back on purchases at Walmart. If your total online purchase is $100 on Walmart’s website, then you make $3. No questions asked. The money is paid out in check form or Pay Pal every quarter.

There are more than 2,000 stores on the website.

The Better Business Bureau (BBB) gives an A+ rating.
