Purim Giveaway | $100 Cash From Ebates!

If you have been reading this blog for more than a minute, you know that my favorite cash-back program is Ebates.

I love Ebates. I love that they send me a BIG FAT CHECK every quarter. I love that they pay me to do something I’d be doing anyway – buying stuff online.

And I LOVE that they love Purim.

And are showing it by giving away $100 to one lucky Kosher on a Budget reader.

Now, truth be told, Ebates is also giving away $100 to celebrate another March event – Mommy Madness.

Haven’t heard of it?

That’s because this is the first year of Ebates’ spring celebration called Mommy Madness!

Ebates is kicking off two weeks (thru March 13) of crazy cash-back amounts in the run-up to March Madness. And they are targeting stores that many of us mommies like to shop at, hence the name Mommy Madness.

Blue Nile – 5% cashback
Drugstore.com – 12% cashback
JCPenney – 6% cashback
Lands End – 6% cashback
Philosophy – 10% cashback
Sephora – 8% cashback
The Childrens Place – 5% cashback
Vitacost – 8% cashback (time to use your $10 credit!!!)

Plus, everyday, there will be a special Daily Double store – with double (and sometimes even triple) cashback!

So who wants to win $100??

There are two ways to enter this giveaway.

The first – and this is MANDATORY – leave a comment on this post telling me either:

(a) what you/your kids/your dog is going to be dressed up as for Purim


(b) what team you’d like to see win the NCAA Tournament. (You can tell me both, but it only counts as one entry!)

The second entry is not mandatory to enter, but it is mandatory to collect your winnings in the event that you win – and that’s to sign up for an Ebates account if you don’t already have one. Leave a SECOND comment telling me that you have signed up for Ebates – or already were signed up for Ebates.  

If you win and are not a member of Ebates, you will be disqualified and a new winner must be chosen. That would be very sad.

This giveaway will be open until Thursday, March 8 (PURIM!) at 11:59 pm CST. The winner will be notified on Friday, March 9 (Shushan Purim).

Disclosure: Ebates will provide one winning KOAB reader with the cash prize and requires that the winner be a registered member of Ebates to claim their prize. I was not compensated by Ebates to run this giveaway, nor to share my positive opinions of their cash-back site. I am, however, an affiliate of Ebates. For more information, please see my disclosure policy.
