Cash Back Sites Rebate Money at Stores You Already Shop At
Many people use cash back credit cards to save an extra one or two-percent on everything they buy. The same concept applies to cash back websites which pay you money back automatically just for using their links to popular retailers that you shop at anyway like Macy's, Kohl's, Best Buy, etc. Here are some of the most popular cash back programs.

Such is the case with religious health care sharing organizations that pool members' monthly payments and MAY pay some of your medical costs. Buyer beware.
