Tips & Warnings

Ebates will pay you via paypal about four times a year, unless you request to be paid more often.

Ebates has a "Moe Money Maker" you can install on your computer. It will alert you when you are on a site where you can get a savings from Ebates. Many people have said this is hard to remove from their computer so I would not recommend installing it.
