Quick Request

I really would never ever do this.  Because I hate getting asked to sign up for things for someone else.  But, since it's a free thing that actually is helpful, I thought I might be a bit ballsy.  

G deploys to Afghanistan in 6 months.  They don't have great internet there, but we were planning to get him a laptop anyways, simply so he might possibly be able to get to e-mail me once in a while.  But when I was on ebates today I saw that if I get 50 referrals (who make a purchase of $20 by 10/10)then I can get a free iPad for G.....something he's been salivating over for months.  

What is ebates?  It's a free site you sign up with that if you are logged into and click on stores you would normally go to for online shopping (such as Gap, Sephora, Crate and Barrel, JCPenney, Sears, Apple, etc....the list goes on and on), you get cash back.  Seriously.  I have a Groupon (a whole other site) for, am getting ready to order G some more shave gel, and I will get 6% back off that order.  Cash.  They mail you a check!  I have friends who love this program and really have enjoyed their checks (the next one is scheduled to go out in November).  I won't be getting a big check from that purchase (about 2-3 dollars will be added to my account), but it is something!

So, if you are not an ebates member (or even if you used to be, but have since switched e-mails) would you please consider signing up to help me reach 50?  It would be an awesome surprise for someone getting ready to go overseas.  I told him it would be silly to buy an iPad when they're first out, and he agreed, but still looks longingly every time we pass by!  If you would like to sign up, please click on the link (it tracks your signup to me).  You get $5 just for signing up!  Thank you so much!


  1. Kalee,

    I just signed up. Do you automatically get credit if I used the link on your post? I want to make sure there's not something else I have to do to count towards your 50?

  2. Adrienne,

    Thank you so much! I just looked at the fine print and it says to qualify the person has to spend $20 on merchandise using their site (for cash back) by October 10th. I've updated the blogs to specify.

    Thanks again!

  3. Kalee,

    Thanks for the information. I just went over to Macy's website via Ebates and purchased a tube of my favorite mascara - Diorshow. I was in need anyway and now I feel good about my purchase because I want G to have that iPad!

    I rooting for you to get to your "50" and will put the word out!


  4. I just signed up for ebates through your link and now have to decide what to get! Hope you're able to get enough referrals.

  5. I'm sorry I can't help out. Geographical restrictions etc. I hope you get your 50!
