MYFOXNY.COM - Websites that offer cash back on your online purchases are a great way to put some extra dough back in your pocket where it belongs. We’ve featured a couple of them like hoopladoopla.com and ebates.com. We’ve also done stories on credit card companies that offer cash back rebates on all of your purchases.
Here’s a little money earning tip on increasing your cash back: We call it “stacking” cash back deals. If you have one of those cash back credit cards you can use that card to buy stuff through one of the rebate sites. That will effectively have you “stacking” the credit card cash back rebate on top of the website’s cash back rebate, in some cases it can effectively double the rebate.
Bottomline: “stacking” rebates will put even more cash back in your pocket!
What to look out for don’t use sites or credit cards that charge fees for any of these cash back deals, there are plenty of sites out there like the two we mention above that are totally free and many credit card companies offer cash back cards that come with no fees, so shop around!
