Mr. Rebates Review & $100 Amazon E-Certificate Giveaway

As you know if you have followed Nicole's Nickels for some time, I am a huge fan of Mr. Rebates and have used this website many many times as I shop online. I was thrilled when Mr. Rebates himself contacted me to see if I was interested in posting a review of the site along with an awesome giveaway! Of course I said yes!

Mr. Rebates is a cash-back shopping website that offers over 1500 stores plus money-saving online coupons that you can stack with the every day cash-back savings. Some of the top name brand stores include favorites like Macy's, Sears, Travelocity and more. Every time I contemplate purchasing something online I check the cash back percentage offered by Mr. Rebates. I love getting money back on my purchases - who wouldn't?

It's completely FREE to sign up for Mr. Rebates and you'll get $5 in your account just for signing up. Since you only need $10 in your account to cash out, you're already halfway there! Just log in to Mr Rebates each time you shop and then the site will take you to the retail site you request. It will keep track of how much you spend, verify it with the merchant and then after 90 days show as available in your account. I think the 90 days is so money is not being given and then the item subsequently returned, which I completely understand.

A recent example of a purchase I made in the past month was at where I can get 10% cash back on my purchase. That means basically saving 10% on your order without even using a coupon! Mr. Rebates also has the great feature of posting available coupon codes so that it is really one-stop shopping for your Internet shopping needs!
