  1. I’ve been using Ebates for years and often get $75-$100 payments from them. Love it!! I also use Swagbucks to earn gift cards but this one you need to answer surveys or watch videos to earn. Works really well too and you can get gift cards to Amazon, Walmart, Target, etc. And of course, I use Groupon! Just got a $32 to do my hair this week including foils and cut. 😉
    Great list, Beth!!
