I don't 8% is still too low:
$500 purchase will only give you $40.
$250 purchase will only give you $20.

Unlike the 12% was giving you:
$500 purchase will only give you $60.
$250 purchase will only give you $30.
you are correct, 12 > 8.

No. You would need to make the purchase going through ebates to amazon during the promotion dates.

How long does it take for Ebates to post the cashback? I still haven't received even a confirmation for the purchase of that North Face jacket during Black Friday.

Every time I want to buy something I don't need, I think of HST and the temptation goes away lol.

Good for books though cause amazon seems to still charge only 5% tax to ON.

I've only been doing the ebates thing for about 6 months now. Historically speaking, how many times a year does ebates offer this special flat-rate promotions across all categories on amazon? Does it ever get better than the 12% recently?

I've taken advantage of both the 12% and 8% offers, but I'm curious about the frequency of similar promotions...
I've been using ebates for 5 years. The flat-rate promos are quite rare for Amazon, but may become more frequent, since it has happened twice recently.

I’m never seen this kind of ebates before at Amazon. These are the only two times I’ve seen high ebates across the board

Many thanks to @warpdrive and @MELPOMENE! I was hoping for a response from some veterans around here that could speak from experience. Much appreciated!

Hello @alanbrenton, you are not required to pay the Ontario portion (8%) of the HST on printed books

That's very worrying. 2 years ago they didn't pay me cashback for the monitor I bought from Dell, claiming I didn't go through them. This time I made absolutely sure I went through their webiste and still no cashback. Am I the only person with negative experience with ebates? I mean, you have no way to prove you purchased anything so they can deny payments at will.

I remember those shop.ca days... playstation 3D monitor for $60 after ebates and vouchers :D
some rebate is better than nothing though. I recently got $20 back buying a vitamix (amazon), and 2 x $25 for 2 stand mixers from the bay.

But there is. Every time you click through their website, it generates an ID. The last time I asked for support, I was required to copy/paste my invoice to them along with the ID they gave me. I don't know how they verify it, but I'm guessing if the time/date of purchase corresponds with the ID date, then they can verify that it's proof. Oh and maybe they ask the merchant to double-check as well (I'm not sure).
