Johnny Cash back

If you have not discovered how much free money there is on the internet, now is the time to start. And I'm not talking about chump change where you get paid $0.10 per survey, I'm talking about real money. If you have a Citi credit card, you may be familiar with the Citi Merchants network where you can earn a certain percentage cash back when you buy something through that network. The same deal applies for these sites. You click on a site to buy something, and then, you get a certain percentage cash back because these sites make money for referring you. There's only one catch. You have to buy something (in most cases). So if you're not going to buy something, then you're hopelessly out of luck, but who doesn't buy things occasionally? I'm cheap, and I still have things I need to buy. Textbooks for example. You can even get cashback on textbooks. Usually, the percentage on cash back is not too high - although it sometimes is - but it's better than getting nothing back, right? And let's say you make a big purchase, something like a computer. 3% of $1000 is $30. Nice little pocket change with which you can buy me dinner. Here's a list of my favorites:

FatWallet - You get $5 for signing up and their forum is great for finding deals.
Ebates - You also get $5 for signing up AND you can even make some money for referrals...... so use my link please :-)
InstantProfitz - You get $3 for signing up AND you can make money for referrals...... so again, please use my link :-) This site looks kind of ghetto, but apparently, it has some of the highest cash back rates (but be wary of the other offers on there).

And to top it all off, someone came up with the ingenious idea of searching for which of these sites have the best cash back rates. It's at ev'reward.

Another site I like to check just for deals and such is this one. I'm not sure if it's the best, but its' the first one I came across, and I've stuck to it: Passwird.

The following is an article describing this phenomenon.

There is another rewards comparison site - RewardsDB that lists even more rewards programs than the other site you list. Sometimes both sites are a little out of date so it's often good to compare.

RewardsDB also has a sister site - which works the same way but shows charity mall partners of merchants rather than rewards program partners.
