    I was wondering about Ebates. I know you have to go through there site first to get your % back right  but what about when new releases are TLO how do you get the Ebate on that can you just have the Ebate site open on one tab and then when u add to cart with the TLO happens just checkout through the Ebate tab that is open would that work?

    What you said in your first post is correct. Go to Nike.com through ebates, click on the twitter link and add the shoe, and then complete checkout through the ebates site. This method works for the other sites to, FTL, FNL, Eastbay...I've already gotten over $100+ dollars back from ebates.

    Can someone summarize ebates for me? Which sites is it good for, and how much do they give you back?

    And how much must you earn before you get your first rebate?

    I haven't tried the toolbar just because I don't like too much stuff on my browser lol (personal preference) but I just get up a few minutes earlier and log into ebates to get everything ready so once it's 5am I'm ready to checkout with the ebates site. Not sure how the paypal works since I haven't set mine up but they just send me a check in the mail every 2 months or whenever i request it. There is a min. and the fee's are paid by them for both mailing and paypal.

    Here's their breakdown:

    I got another question about ebates can you stack ebates with shopdiscover or any other site and get more cashback or do they know that is what you are doing

    Like ebates have to use the site but my thinkin is since ebates has that toolbar all u have to do is go through discovers site then click the toolbar for ebates and there u go u get 10% from shopdiscover and the 6% from ebates and what i just notice is all u have to do when they do TLO is get the item in ur cart have you ebates/shopdiscover open in another tab then refresh the ebates tab and it should show item in cart and check out from there

    Not sure if you could double dip like that but it's worth a shot. I don't have discover so I wouldn't know.

    Funny I'm looking for a cc that gives me the most cash back % also. Wells Fargo isn't giving me back squat. What's discovers cash back %?

    well if you use that shopdiscover stuff man its high like 10% on alot of online stores but its 1% on all purchases and then they have like bonus purchases like quarterly that give you like 5% cashback the only thing about discover is that its not taken in alot of places

    Oh so the shopdiscover is like ebates from discover basically? I've been looking into it and I'm considering citibank since I bank with them also. Right now I only have one cc but 2 is my max limit. Do you know of any other banks that have the same sort of setup as the shopdiscover?
