How to earn a rebate on Priceline now that eBay Anything Points is ending?

With the demise of the eBay Anything Points program, it looks like the best kickback deal on Priceline purchases is now Ebates which offers a 3% cash rebate.

They’ll give you $5 for signing up, too, though they won’t cash out the $5 until you’ve earned an additional $5.01 through purchases.

They also give $5 to you for each person you refer (so if you use my link above, we each get $5) but again you can’t cash this out until you’ve earned $5.01 in shopping rebates. Not hard at all, a single Priceline purchase of $167 gets you there for instance.

Ebates is not the only way to earn something for Priceline purchases, to be sure, it just looks to me to be the best remaining deal.

  • AirMilesMart gives 1 point for every 2 dollars spent, equivalent in my mind to a 0.75% rebate.

  • MyPoints gives 2 points per dollar spent, which can then be redeemed 2:1 into United miles — so you’re earning 1 United mile per dollar, but you can’t convert until you’ve earned 5000 MyPoints.
  • Upromise offers a 2% rebate.

If you have thoughts on a return better than EBates 3%, please let me know and I’ll post about it here. But I’ve looked around and haven’t found anything better yet… Thanks!
