hopping on the bandwagon

I've read ad nauseum about the many bloggers who looooooove Ebates.  Don't ask me why I'm just now getting on board; I have no idea what took me so long!  Thanks to a tip from soon-to-be Mrs. Polka Dots and Protein Bars,  I hit the motherload when I signed up this morning.

For a grand total of $14, I got:

$25 to The French Hound, our current favorite brunch place. EVER.  These are pics from our inaugural trip.  Best Bloody Mary I have ever had in my life!

$25 to The Goodstone Inn & Estate.  I'm hoping to parlay this into a weekend getaway.

Two $25 to Village Square Restaurant, by far our favorite place in our new town.

and $50 to La Nicoise Cafe, a totally kitsch and surprisingly authentic French restaurant in town.  The beau is obsessed with their homemade chocolate mousse. 

i couldn't find a pic of the restaurant, so i'll just let you drool over ina's chocolate orange mousse instead.

ALL of that for only $14!  And I get 30% cash back through Ebates, so when all is said and done, less than $10 for $150 of date nights.

Plus, I got a stocking stuffer for the beau at 20% off and 5% cash back.  I am loving this.

Again, what on earth took me so long?!  If you're not on Ebates, you need to join now!  Here's the link to my invite: http://www.ebates.com/rf.do?referrerid=mc0pEEzkPqF%2FbEZYXy%2B21w%3D%3D.

Happy shopping!

I love ebates! You should also sign up for Mr. Rebates-same thing but has some different stores. I always check both to see which one has a higher cash back.
