We had a great response to our recent blog post about how to get paid $2.60 to get a free $25 Restaurant.com gift certificate, and I wanted to make sure you all don’t miss out this “double dipping” opportunity, where you can get paid AGAIN to “buy” a free $25 restaurant.com gift certificate.
Here’s how to get paid AGAIN to buy a Restaurant.com gift certificate using eBates (which is a site just like Mr. Rebates):
1) Sign up for EBATES. You will receive a $5 bonus if you register with eBates and make a purchase within 30 days. (I do not recommend signing up for eBates unless you plan to purchase something within 30 days or you will lose your $5 bonus… The Restaurant.com purchase does count as a qualified purchase.)
- You will also receive 15% cash back at Restaurant.com for shopping through eBates.
2) Within the eBates site, search for Restaurant.com and go to the Restaurant.com website. Search for gift certificates that you want to buy and add them to your cart. When you check out, enter code PREZ.
- You will get 70% off the price with code PREZ, making $25 Restaurant.com gift certificates only $3 out of pocket. Combine this with the $5 you get for signing up with eBates, PLUS the 15% cash back you get for shopping at eBates, and you can GET PAID $2.45 to buy a $25 gift certificate.
And pretty soon you will have so many free and cheap food gift certificates you can eat out for FREE many times this year!
If you already did this deal using Mr. Rebates, you are still eligible for this deal through eBates. Deal ends 2/19/09.
UPDATE: Also, it was just pointed out to me that according to the “eBates rules” as of 2/18/09, you need to have a minimum rebate amount of $5.01 before requesting your rebate check from eBates, and the $5 sign up bonus does not count toward this. However, if you use eBates for other online purchases, this rebate amount will add up quickly.
