Today we wanted to take a moment to let you know how to save the most on photography equipment by leveraging sale prices PLUS easy cash-back rebates that you can earn on top of already discounted products. How you might ask?
Well look no further than Ebates, which offers nice cash back bonuses on purchases at TON of major retailers as well as photography specific retailers such as Adorama and Canon. So if you’re looking to buy ANYTHING online (including cameras or camera equipment), you should ALWAYS go through Ebates to get extra cash back on whatever you order.
Ok, so now you're probably wondering how it works, right?
Well here are some quick instructions for you:
Once logged in, search for your retailer of choice, and if the rebate is tempting, click on it to be redirected to the retailer’s site.
Shop as usual and when you check out, pay with your credit card, and then in a day or two look out for a cash back credit on your Ebates statement.
Ebates will then send you a check in the mail once every 3 months as long as your cash back total is at least $5.01. If you are under $5.00 during any given 3 month period then your earned cash back simply rolls over to the next period until it hits $5.01.
The best part is that the Ebates cash back bonus you receive is in addition to any discounts retailers are offering through various sales, coupon or promo codes – so be sure to check your email and regular mail, and you can double dip on your savings.
Here's an example of how you can save extra cash on that camera you've been dreaming of.
Let's say you go to Adorama and find a new Canon 5D Mark III listed for $2499. It will look something like this:
Now, BEFORE YOU MAKE THE PURCHASE you should check Ebates to see if there is a cashback rebate option.
If you're in luck, you'll see at least 1% cash back from Adorama, and you'll land on a screen that looks like the shot below. And THIS is where the magic happens...all you have to do is click on the "SHOP NOW" link! That link will redirect you back to Adorama where you can make your purchase, and then when you do you'll get 1% of your purchase credited back to your Ebates account!
And that's IT!
In this example you would save 1% of $2499, which comes out to an extra $24.99 for doing practically nothing!
As soon as you have at least $5 in rebates built up in your account, Ebates will literally send you a check in the mail that you can deposit in your bank account. It's LITERALLY FREE MONEY!
And the best part is that you don't have to use Ebates just for photography equipment...they have hundreds of online retailers listed (some with MUCH higher cash back amounts), so practically avery time you shop online you can get cash back into your pocket by following these simple steps.
