Ebates will pay you for every new member you refer to our site who then shops at our partner merchant sites – see “qualified referral” below. While we love them too, pets, minor children and imaginary friends don’t qualify, nor do referrals to friends or housemates who don’t actually do their own shopping via their own account on Ebates.com.

A “qualified referral” is a new member of Ebates referred by you that signs up at Ebates.com during the referral period starting January 1st, 2016 and ending March 31st, 2016 and that complies with the rules set forth below. If a qualified referral makes purchases totaling $25 or more that earn cash back within one year following signing up, Ebates will pay you a $5 “Base Bonus” for each such qualified referral and you will be eligible for an additional one-time “Tier Bonus” for the referral period based on the total number of such qualified referrals you generate and the Tier Bonus table then in effect.
