We just wrapped up our week-long Sweet 16 Celebration for the 16th anniversary of Ebates! It was such a blast, complete with fantasy party Pinterest boards, a Twitter party, amazing throwback photos and, of course, cake. (Well…we had cake at the Ebates headquarters, but we would have gladly shared it with you!) We gave away over $400 in prizes to our amazing members. Here’s a recap of how we celebrated.

To kick off our celebration week, we took to Pinterest to get creative. We asked members to make a board on Pinterest called “Sweet 16 Dreams” and create their fantasy Sweet 16 party. We saw so many inspired entries featuring outfits, decorations, food, invitations and more. Picking the best two boards was NOT easy! Our first place winner won a $100 Amazon Gift Card by choosing to follow her roots with a Native American theme and our second place winner won a $50 Amazon Gift Card by rocking the red carpet with a Hollywood theme. Thank you to everyone who participated! It was wonderful to see all your gorgeous themes and unique ideas.

Winners: Lynn M. and Jennifer M.


On Wednesday, we threw a party on Twitter! It was definitely a fun way to get to know our members and relive some amazing memories (with a few fashion disasters and celeb crushes thrown in). We asked our followers questions and were rolling on the floor over some of the hilarious answers while getting misty-eyed over the ones that made us yearn for our youth.

Ten of those who participated were randomly selected as winners and each received a $20 Starbucks Gift Card. We want to thank everyone who participated. We had a ton of fun learning more about our awesome Ebates members!

Winners:  Lori C., Malika E., Rita F., Gina G., Anne-Marie L., Dana M., Iram M., Randy P., Lis R. and Taara S.


Thursday rolled around and we obviously felt it necessary to have a #ThrowbackThursday Instagram contest. We asked members to post a photo of themselves at 16 for the chance to win a $50 Ebates bonus! Above, you’ll see the delightful 16-year-old faces of the three beautiful employees that help run the blog. Aren’t we just precious?

Winner: Kristina W.


As one last special treat, we took to Facebook to surprise our members with one last giveaway opportunity! Over 1,400 entries poured in but only one could win a $50 Sephora Gift Card. We appreciate every single participant who made our celebration a blast!

Winner: Christine S.
