Ebates: Double Cashback In Store On Most Merchants

Update 7/19/19: Deal is available again

Update 7/12/19: Same deal available again, no idea why rates are increased but they are.

The Offer

Direct link to offer

  • Ebates is offering double cash back in store on most merchants. Some merchants have no increased offer and others have an increase of 1.5x instead

The Fine Print

  • No details, just increased rates

Our Verdict

No idea how long this will last or what it’s for. If you don’t have an Ebates account then consider using my link here or you can get an account that earns Membership Rewards points.

Rate for some merchants dropped..

JCPenney was 2% and bumped to 4% during last promo. Now just 1%.

I see JCP at 6%, was 2%.

Weird. I see 1% here whether logged in or out.

It is not valid for GCs.

IDK if it’s strictly enforced though

They have clawed back cashback for GCs purchases in the past and froze accounts. YMMV.

Rakuten has no idea what you bought in a store. They might flag you based on transaction total (given no sales tax on GCs), but they don’t see line item detail like they would for online purchases.

could you restore your account back?

In the past when I bought GCs in-store at Macy’s, JCPenney, and Bed, Bath, & Beyond the cashback was credited as expected.

Last week Staples was 4%, I bought a bunch of $200 VGCs and all credit tracked no problem. Even stacked with Dosh so it was quite a deal.

Or now it’s rakuten? What japanese genius thought their generic brand name was better for a cashback site than Ebates? That name rolls off the English tongue like a spoon full of peanut butter.

Looking to utilize the Amex Biz Plat Dell credit, should I just wait until monday to make a purchase? I feel like that wouldn’t hurt my chances if the cash back % went up.

Millennial Outrage

Good call. For the Saks $50 credit personal Plat, Rakuten has 10% CB right now.

I received an e-mail stating that “Double In-Store Cash Back ends 7/14/19 at 11:59pm PT.”

Staples disappeared from my Ebates in-store offers until I unlinked an Amex card that had a buy $25, get $5 back offer. https://www.doctorofcredit.com/amex-offers-office-supply-stores-spend-25-and-get-5-back/

When I deleted the card, the Staples offer on Ebates reappeared, but Ebates won’t let me link the Amex card to that offer.

Is anyone else having the same issue?

Too bad Staple in store cash back is currently broken ….
( And Ebate is ” working on it ” )

Is this targeted? I don’t see a single increases in-store offer right now

Beginning on Sunday… $200 Mc GC’S have a no purchase fee at Staples. Simply Cash Plus Biz has 5% cash back, Ebates has 4% cash back in store, and Dosh has 3% cash back. Not a bad deal… John 3:16

Also folks shouldn’t forget the $10 on $40+ Amex offer for Staples.
