Share Your Cheer & Enter to Win $2,000!

It’s a new year and high time to turn a new page! Here at Ebates, we’re feeling good about 2018. That’s why we’re partnering with Rakuten, our parent company, to give away $2,000 to one lucky winner who’s hopeful about this coming year.

Along with Rakuten (which means “optimism” in Japanese), we want to know what you’re feeling optimistic about. Is it sticking to your New Year’s resolutions (finally)? Maybe you’re starting a new job. Or you may just be excited about a new TV show. (We don’t judge!) Let us know in a 15-second video and you could win $2,000.

How to Enter the “Share Your Cheer” Sweepstakes:

  1. Think of what you’re optimistic about in 2018 and record a video telling us about it. If you need inspiration, check out our video below!
  2. Enter your email, then upload your video into the widget. Please read the Terms and Conditions below and make sure you understand them before continuing.
  3. You can earn additional entries by sharing this sweepstakes on Twitter.

The sweepstakes ends on Monday, Feb. 5th, at 11:59 p.m. PST. The winner will be picked randomly through Gleam and announced on Facebook and on this blog. Be sure to keep an eye on your inbox, as the winner will have 24 hours to accept the prize before we will choose another winner.
