Update: Olivia left a comment letting me know that she noticed that Ebates states that this offer is not available for gift subscriptions. I did some searching around on Ebates and discovered that indeed it does state that if you click through to the right page.
I’m a little frustrated with the offer because on the initial Netflix click-through page, there is no indication of this. I actually had to search to find the information on another page. If you purchased a gift subscription through Ebates and do not receive a credit in a few days, you may want to contact them and let them know that you assumed that you would receive the $8 credit because they are not clear in stating that gift subscriptions aren’t included. (Sign into Ebates and do a search for Netflix. There is no information on that page about this.) My hope is that they will be willing to work with you since I feel that this is an error on their part.
One of my favorite gifts to give someone is a Netflix membership. It’s one of those gifts that just about anyone will enjoy.
Right now you can actually score a membership for as low as FREE when you shop through your Ebates account. Here’s how:
- Search for Netflix then click through their link to shop.
- Netflix memberships begin as low as $7.99/month (for the watch instantly plan).
- Once your make your purchase, you will receive a credit of $8 in your Ebates account within 2-3 days plus new members get $5 just for signing up!
Note: Even if the recipient of your Netflix gift already has a Netflix membership, they can use your gift to extend their subscription.
You can even print a gift card to give as your gift. Sounds like a great last minute gift idea to me!
