Prep for Valentines Day Giveaway - $25 to JC Penney

Over the next couple weeks, Simple will be running some amazing giveaways in celebration of Valentines Day. Today, we have for you a $25 gift certificate to JC Pennys courtesy of eBillme.


I don't have too much experience with eBillme, but the site looks pretty cool because you can earn cash back on gift cards that you purchase from 100's of different retailers, such as Zappos, Home Depot, CVS and Amazon (just to name a few). I'm a habitual gift card purchaser (because really, half the fun of something new is picking in out yourself), so I'm all about pocketing a little extra cash on the gifts I give.

And it gets better. If  you shop the gift card mall on Tuesdays, they will double your savings with 20% cash back.

Want to learn more about why eBillme is the best way to shop online? Read it here.


GET IT YOURSELF! Check out eBillme for all the details and how the site works!

WIN IT! We have a $25 gift certificate to JC Penney for one lucky simple reader. To enter, visit the eBillme website, come back here, and leave in the comments something interesting you learned about the site.

Extra Entries: (Leave separate comment for each):

  • Tweet this giveaway: Enter to win a $25 #giveaway to JC Penney from eBillme and @simplereviews: http://tinyurl.com/5wo4u6b
  • "Friend" Simple Reviews on Facebook.
And wait, there's more! A few more of our favorite sites are also running similar contest. Please visit MamaBuzz, Saving Cents with Sense, Savings & Stewardship and The Average Parent for more chances to win!

  67. How secure is eBillme?

    All payments are made through your bank’s website and funds are transferred from your bank account to eBillme only after authentication has taken place.

    No one has any access to your personal and sensitive financial information such as bank account, social security or credit card numbers. The result is a solution that does not compromise your security and that guarantees your privacy.
