Ebates Commercials Frustrate Me - Here's Why



Disclaimer: I have NOT used any affiliate links or referral codes in this post. This post is simply my feelings on the Ebates Commercials. I absolutely love Ebates and use it almost weekly and I love getting cash back on my purchases. If you haven't checked them out you really should.


Ebates is a great way to get some of your hard earned cash back when you shop online and often times Ebates offers the highest percentage back on purchases. I have saved $100's of dollars using Ebates when I shop online for anything and everything and I would recommend them to anyone who shops online.

BUT...

Their commercials!??

Check out a few Ebates Commercials

For such an amazing program that has already beyond proven themselves to be legitimate and transparent program why lie in your commercials? Do they think we as consumers are stupid??

The wording and portrayal of their amazing rebate program could be so much more inviting and transparent and it would do wonders for sign up rates I am sure.

The wording in the above commercial says " Spin Instruction Deb Gets Paid to Shop".  NO NO NO Deb does NOT get paid to shop!??? On what planet is that statement true!? And EVERY commercial uses the same wording! The testimonial commercials use the wording like "I am making money every time I shop". I just shake my head every time I see one of their commercials. You are not making money when you shop. Plain and simple.

You are getting a fraction of YOUR money back, not making any profit from your shopping.

Wording like this is what makes some people believe it's too good to be true and then they shy away from it. I asked only 20 people ages 40-57 and each said they have avoided checking out Ebates because they don't believe you can get paid to shop, and they are RIGHT!

What does Ebates offer? 

It offers a great rebate program where you can get cash back (not make or earn) on online purchases if you shop from the Ebates website stores portal. You are not gaining any money...let's be clear you are getting YOUR OWN money back.

A rebate is very different that making or earning money.

Rebate - Noun
A return of part of the original payment for some service or merchandise, partial refund.

Make or Earn = You gain a profit.

I know this is such a small issue, and I know I am not the only one who has thought it after seeing one of their commercials.  Ebates is already such an amazing program why not use factual wording to promote one of the best rebate programs out there.

Can you earn on any area of the Ebates Website? 

YES on referrals NOT on your shopping as their commercials state. The way you can earn maybe $20 or a little more is by referring friends to try out the free Ebates program and if they shop and spend $25 within a certain amount of time you will earn $10.
