Canadians get paid to shop in stores with news cash back program
TORONTO--Ebates.ca has launched its In-Store Cash Back program, which gives members the ability to earn Cash Back when shopping at participating stores nationally including GAP, Old Navy, Bed Bath and Beyond, American Eagle and Buy Buy Baby. The program will continue to add additional merchants in the coming weeks.
Canadians love getting paid to shop, and savvy consumers have already been earning Cash Back online through Ebates.ca since 2012. However, this is the first time members can also earn Cash Back by shopping at traditional brick and mortar stores. And while the growth of online shopping continues, with retail e-commerce sales expected to jump by 26.3 per cent in 2018, Ebates' move to offer In-Store Cash Back strategically augments the consumer shopping experience by offering additional convencience and choice.
"As the market leader of online retail cash back, we understand how Canadians want to shop and aim to facilitate that, whether online or offline, through services including the Ebates mobile app, Express Cash Back Button and Gift Card shop," said Jennifer La Forge, the newly appointed General Manager of Ebates.ca.
Ebates In-Store Cash Back is a new way for Ebates members to shop. Simply add one or more valid credit cards to your Ebates profile and then link available In-Store Cash Back offers to any or all of your cards. When you shop at a retailer near you and pay with your eligible linked card, you will automatically earn Cash Back on qualifying purchases. There are no coupons to clip, no vouchers to print, and nothing extra to present in the store, and Cash Back will be added to your Ebates account up to 7 days after purchase.
"With the In-Store Cash Back program, we are making the path to purchase easier than ever before, providing consumers with even more convenience, choice and control over how they shop – and save money," said Belinda Baugniet, VP of marketing and resident shopping expert at Ebates.ca.
The Ebates brand supports a strong community of savvy shoppers around the world, and has paid out nearly $1 billion to its global members. Ebates.ca offers free membership, and allows consumers to shop online at over 750 of their favourite top-name retailers while earning Cash Back on every purchase they make, paid out quarterly in the form of a #BigFatCheque or via PayPal. Founded in 1998, Ebates began international expansion with the launch of Ebates Canada in 2012 headquartered in Toronto, and was acquired by Rakuten, Inc. in 2014.
