A Penny Saved is a Penny on Ebates.com

Ebates Recently I was ordering something online with one of my friends and before she went to place the order I asked if she went through her ebates account. She looked at me dazed and confused not knowing what I was talking about. I could not believe that she had never heard of ebates before. I informed her immediately and referred her to the site.

If you have never heard of them before, ebates is a site that will give you a certain percentage of your online purchase back to you with no hidden fees or charges in a “big fat check” quarterly. For example if you purchase something from Macy’s online they will give you 6.0% cash back and sometimes they even have free shipping added onto your purchase.  This may not seem like a lot but since 2008 I have received $73.91 back from them in a check with all my online purchases, and since I am such a bargain shopper this is a lot to me! During the holidays they run specials of double cash back and the percentage of cash back can be up to 20% to many popular stores.


They have over a 1,000 stores, services and websites listed on their site that will give you cash back. Some examples are: Netflix, Target, AT&T and Verizon, and ebay.


Check out their site at www.ebates.com and if you refer a friend you get $5 added onto your “big fat check” after a purchase if made from your friend. I absolutely love this site and every time I make an online purchase I start off with making sure I can get an ebates reward!

I guess that's what happens when land is at a super premium.

It's hard for me to imagine that, coming from Detroit, where land is pretty much as cheap as it gets.

But evidently, Japan is a little different than Detroit and the good people there make the best of a difficult situation.

Recently, NPR.org ran a very good article on Japan's tiny homes, In Japan, Living Large in Really Tiny Houses. Here is a bit from the article:
