Make me money, make you money

Ebates cash back

Ok, I’ve avoided overly commercial messages in the past, but when I do find good deals, I think it’s worth it to pass them on, since I appreciate it when other people do the same. I’ve used Trezr for this lately, but today I’m going to whore out my own blog because I think this is actually a pretty good deal for everyone.

<sales pitch>
If you go check out Ebates today (note: affiliate link!), you’ll find a Cyber Thursday sale that’s only on for another seven hours.

Some of the rebate rates they’re offering are pretty sweet — but the one that caught my eye was 2% off at Apple… double the normal 1% rate. This is a pretty good discount if you’re looking to buy a laptop or G5 (hint: 2% of $2500 is $50).

Anyway, here’s what’s in it for me. You sign up using my affiliate link, you make a purchase using Ebates, and I make $5 and you make $5. That’s it. It’s not like they’re doing anything special for me — but I figured that today’s deals were good enough to put it out there and, should you choose, you could take advantage of this.

As you can see from the screenshot above, I’ve saved a bit of money using Ebates since 1999… So, again, if you want, go sign up and make me some money and you some money too.

And thus concludes this overtly commercial message. Which, I might add, will be an extremely rare exception in the course of things.
