An easy way to get free money – $30 for FREE!

Want an easy way to get free money – get $30 for FREE! Here’s how:

We’ve posted before about the awesome $30 free deal from Ebates. But by using 2 of the hot deals available right now (the 1 deal just started & expires soon!), you can be well on your way to $30 free (or more!) from Ebates.

Through August 14 (only a few days left!), if you refer 3 friends to Ebates, they will give you $30. So if you refer 30 friends, you could get $300! The possibilities are endless! Also, each friend you refer needs to earn a minimum of $5.01 in cashback by August 14. But this is easy to do if you start with the two hot deals we mention below.

  • Ebates is an awesome cash back shopping site where you literally get paid to shop. If you haven’t joined yet, now is the time! Sign up for Ebates here: Ebates

As an incentive for your friends, here are some great offers you can send to them that they can do through Ebates right now for FREE! You need to make sure you do these or similar offers yourself, so you also qualify for cash back yourself!

An easy way to quickly share this deal with your friends is to click on the “Share” button that appears on this blog post on our website. It will give you the option to email this blog post to your friends, so they can get all the details! Or, if you subscribe via email, you can simply forward this email to your friends. Be sure to read the referral promotion details at Ebates after you have joined Ebates.

FREE Mcafee Internet Security 2009 3-User software – you could even make money off this deal!!
There is a hot deal going on right now where you can get the Mcafee Total Protection 2009 3-User software on Amazon totally FREE after rebate! In fact, you may be able to GET PAID to buy this! Yup, that’s right, you could even make money off this deal! (Please note, this is different than the FREE McAfee deal we posted about a few months ago.)

This product sells for $60 right now on Amazon (but price could change any time, so HURRY!!!), and it has a $60 rebate. This means the price after rebate is currently FREE! How could you end up making money on this deal? Well, prices change frequently on Amazon. The last time Amazon had a similar deal, the price changed to $5 less than the rebate price, meaning the “actual price” was NEGATIVE 5.01 (-$5.01)… meaning you could actually make $5 on the deal after rebate. So if the price goes DOWN on Amazon, this deal could become a money maker. And with the current price right now, it is TOTALLY FREE. So it is a win-win, either way!

  • In the past when Amazon has had deals like this, some people have ended up making money on the rebate if the purchase price was lower than the rebate amount, while some have gotten the exact purchase amount back. So either way, you are guaranteed to get this product FREE, or make money on the deal. But hurry, before Amazon increases the price on this one! Get this hot deal at Amazon here – you MUST purchase this item from Amazon.com and not another store/reseller on Amazon to get the rebate – make sure the one you buy says “Ships from and sold by Amazon.com” – the rebate will be listed if you are on the correct page – if you don’t see it listed, click on “used and new” in the More Buying Choices Section and look for the Amazon.com under the “new” tab:
