Top Online Rewards Programs


If you follow this blog, then it’s no surprise to you that I’m a big online shopper. I’ve gotten so use to doing most of my purchasing this way, that I find myself quite frustrated when I go to the brick and mortar stores. Spending time and gas money, only to find they are so often lacking the color, style or size I need makes me want to pull my hair out. Which is why I love Ebates.

Ebates is a cash-back shopping site that offers you a percentage of your purchase back as a rebate or bonus. They are affiliated with just about every online retailer you can imagine.  So you just log in, find your store, and click through the link to do your shopping. Ebates tracks your purchases and credits your account with 1-35% cash back! Easy as that. Your bonus arrives via Paypal every three months. Plus new members who sign up through THIS link will get a bonus $10 gift card just for doing so!


In case you haven’t heard, Swagbucks is a site that gives away digital “bucks” when you search the web, among other things. You can save them up and redeem for Paypal deposits, Amazon gift cards and more. Plus when you refer your friends, you earn a “buck” each time they do for the first 1,000. So that can really add up. Especially since a $5 Amazon gift card is only 450 points!

I’ve earned hundreds of dollars in free Amazon gift cards over the past couple of years.  So needless to say, I am a fan.


Recyclebank is one of the easiest rewards programs around. For every action you take that has a positive impact on the environment, you’ll earn points redeemable for gift cards, free subscriptions or high value coupons. Head over HERE to sign up for a free account, then click on “Earn Points” to find easy ways to earn by taking pledges, recycling and signing up for free offers. You can easily earn 100 points in just a few minutes, which is enough to grab a free subscription to Good Housekeeping or Redbook.


MyPoints was one of the first ever online rewards programs, and it is consistently the program I receive the most positive emails and comments about. The reason people love it?  The points are very easy to get, and they add up quickly! Get them by reading the daily MyPoints Bonus Mail you find in your inbox. Earn by shopping or taking short surveys. You can even earn by redeeming printable coupons! 1600 points gets you a $10 gift card to Old Navy, Bath & Body Works, Olive Garden, Chili’s and more.  Today I found a B1G1 free Glade printable coupon on the homepage.  When you use it, you get 1,000 points!


After hearing many good reviews, I hopped on the SuperPoints bandwagon last month, and I’ve already earned my first Amazon gift card! Similar to MyPoints, SuperPoints rewards you for reading emails, taking surveys and signing up for free offers. You can also earn by shopping online and referring your friends. 500 points = $5 Amazon gift card. Read more about them HERE.
