There are plenty of websites out there that are happy to cut you a check for something you're probably already doing anyway: online shopping.
You can earn cash back for many of your purchases. Websites like eBates.com give you 3%, 12%, even 20% cash back if you shop through their site. They even offer coupon codes, other discounts and specials to hundreds of popular stores, which you can stack to save even more money.
News 8's Marcella Lee has been a member of eBates since 2002 and over the past 10 years her total cash back has reached nearly $640. Marcella says those purchases were things she was going to buy anyway, so why not get some cold hard cash in return?
There are a lot of different rebate sites besides eBates, so do some research to see which sites have relationships with the stores you like. Then simply remember to go through the rebate website first to connect to your favorite store when you do your online shopping.
The rebate website will track your earnings and send you a check. eBates mails out checks quarterly, but different sites have different policies so read the fine print.
You can follow all of Marcella's reports from her series "Ways to Make Quick Cash" at cbs8.com/yourmoney.
