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 spend $20 shopping through their site for cash back by October 10th) 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!
