I`m constantly searching for ways to enhance my Ebay business - I came across this website called BigCrumbs.com. It caught my attention because it`s a referral/shopping rebate site - so you get cash back when you shop, and you can use it as a referral program. In Ebay`s case, they give the seller a referral credit and the buyer a rebate - that`s a win win in my book.
They have over 200 other major retailers signed up - Wal Mart, Target, Best Buy, etc.
I`d like to solicit some comments about the service and how we can best use it in our Ebay business.
Go here to check it out:
Looking forward to your comments!

Hey Lisa, BigCrumbs is an interesting concept to me as well - we`ve added referral links to our promotions with our customers and I`m hoping to contact the CEO with a few ideas I have.

I`d like to add my two-cents. I`m an eBay seller and buyer and I have found Big Crumbs to be wonderful! As a buyer, of course, I`m enjoying my rebates, but as a seller it`s very interesting. I refer my customers to BigCrumbs to sign up before purchasing from me. I not only make my sale, but I get a commission on that sale and they get a rebate too. It`s certainly a win-win situation all around.
Also, if you sign up using my referral, I would be happy to send you the wording from my BigCrumb marketing emails I send to my past customers and my past sellers for you to use. They have been pretty successful. Just send me a message and I`ll get that over to you.
eBay had to choose to use Big Crumbs - Big Crumbs doesn`t just provide a link to anyone they choose. eBay, like a lot of other companies, have marketing budgets and use these types of things for write-offs - they must have thought Big Crumbs was a good one to go with . . .
I personally thinks Big Crumbs is great - so far, they have done everything they said they would do.
While I do believe Big Crumbs is legit, I must admit I don't frequent the members watering hole much any more. I know there is one in ever group, but one member in particular seems to rub me the wrong way. Apparently , after glancing at a few of the posts here, I may not be the only one annoyed.
For the life of me, I will never understand why a grown women would use each and every opportunity under the sun to flaunt , and rub others noses in her success. At first I thought she was a proud member , but after following her posts the last few months, I do believe she is just attention starved . To add insult to injury , she above everyone else seems to have her nose up Mr Martin's arse.
If one would take a few minutes and look at early Big Crumbs posts , one would find a certain atmosphere of fun and livelyhood. Now it's become a bulletin board for who has the most.
I won't give her screen name but if anyone has ever read forum post they'd know of whom I was expressing my opinions on.
Right Gina ....opps did that slip out ?
Well Im off to see exactly how to get in touch with Vince Martin .
While I'm sure he'll turn a deaf ear to Misses" I'm so Wonderful " annoyance, I will speak my mind.
semper fi !
As for the object of my annoyance.....you keep telling yourself your just a proud and happy camper and not some show off , lonely , home bound wife in need of a confidence boost. If you say it long enough , who know , even you might believe it.
As for the few unhappy people out there, from my experience on the site, you're getting shut out cause you've tried to scam BigCrumbs and whatever other retailer you've "bought" from.
I really have to laugh at the last few folks who have posted. Yes Big Crumbs is legit. But it comes with a huge" BUT ". It works if your lucky enough to have a huge spender in your down line. Or you can be like a few of the lonely souls like Gina here and spend the majority of your time in front of your PC annoying people to join. But it is legit.
There is a small group of BC loyalist who will defend BC to the death. Gina is at the top of the list. She has an opinion about everything. (Like the masses really care ,right ? ) lol .. She reminds me of the little kid who always had her hand up in class. Choose me choose me .
In the old days she is what was refered to as the class brown nose.
The pay outs at Crumbs are very competitive, generally on time and with out all the glitter, but I agree ,it's become more of a Used car feel to it then in the beginning. Progress ? Who knows.
Want an honest report of earnings? How about a down line of roughly 300 and Xmas sales of 1600 and 9 bucks total commission. Sound good ,go for it. Like to listen to the butt kissers , go for it. Me , I'll stick to my other ventures online that earn far more for the time invested. And Yes, I only work the free ops and still make money. Let's get real , tell the truth about all these businesses. Unless your lucky as heck, BC is a hobby not an earner. Vince is straight up dude. Straight up making his far share ..
These are my thoughts on the matter. Agree or disagree, I could care less. But it's the truth.
PS Gina, I don't need socks , but a New Years resolution to tune out your type this year .
I love Bigcrumbs, it's not as scary or suspicious as some think if you understand anything about affiliate marketing or run your own website. I think you begin to understand how it works and why it works. If you are skeptical take a look at this post on the scam forums
I've been using BigCrumbs for a while, and have been very happy with it.
One suggestion I would recommend for all: I found a firefox extension addon that makes it a LOT easier to use BigCrumbs. You can find it here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/9621
2. The extension automatically checks to see if you can get cash back at a store, so you don't have to check yourself.
3. One click, and you get your bigcrumbs tracking link.
Plus the extension helps you get coupon codes, which is pretty awesome.
Anyway - good luck with people making money!
I started with Big Crumbs on 9/2/2010. I am an online seller who deals with a number of companies and at first the percentage on paybacks was great. As the years went by the percentage became smaller however due the my volume of business it was still adequate. All this ended on January 1, 2013. Big Crumbs failed to credit over 300.00 in payments and not matter how many emails I write (there does not appear to be a phone listing) I cannot get them to verify these clicks. All I get from them is generic emails telling me to wait 5 days while they look into it. I have only received 2 replies in 6 months telling me that I would have to wait 91 days. We are now way beyond the 91 days and no replies are received from my emails begging for answers. The proceeds received from this company was a vital part of my income since I am a senior citizen with no pension and limited social security., Is Big Crumbs a scam?
I would have to say yes. Please be careful in dealing with them and do not take their glowing reports to heart. Do more research. I am now dealing with another site however the loss of the income that should have come to me is very painful especially when you are on a limited income.
First off, let me say BigCrumbs is great -- they credit me quickly and I`ve made almost $15 in my first month, just promoting to my Ebay customers. This is great!
Someone asked if Ebay lets you add a link in your auctions. Unfortuanately they don`t and they`ve even cancelled an auction when I tried it. However, I get most of my signups by people reading about Bigcrumbs in my email singature file when I send invoices, follow-up emails, thank-yous, etc.
I also offer people an incentive for signing up under me and using Bigcrumbs. When I see someone under me has a lot of referrals, I through some of my new referrals into their account, to help them make more money. I figure this is win-win for both of us since it encourages them to be more active on BC.
I've been a Big Crumbs member for at least 4 years. It's not a get rich type of thing by any means. It does work though, if you promote it. I like it for my personal eBay shopping too.
Between the eBay bucks and BC cash back, it adds up for some nice savings for me. They have never been late with a payment of mine. I make between $10-$50 per month in referrals. It's just free money to me. I promote it very little but still manage a few new sign ups per month. They are absolutely a legitimate company.
i think bigcrumbs is great. i`ve been getting a lot of new referrals and offer customers a freebie for signing up under me- free shipipping, lowend game used card, etc. has worked wonders and love watching it grow.

I believe that Big Crumbs and the other rebate guys are marketing a PYRAMID scheme, because there will be a saturation point.
How is BigCrumbs.com different from Ebates? Some please explain this too me...I`ve read "Vince`s response", but I still don`t understand what is happening with this site.
I believe that Big Crumbs and the other rebate guys are marketing a PYRAMID scheme, because there will be a saturation point. Not only that, but they are converting existing ebay buyers who will not be increasing ebay`s business. Ebay is losing money every time an ebay cusomer is converted to Big Crumbs. And there is only so much to go around before the saturation level is reached. I think it is a GET RICH QUICK SCHEME.
I can`t see where these folks are producing anything for the money they are making, unless they are somehow increasing ebay`s sales. So I guess you could say I am sceptical.
Ebay is performing a service, a place for buyer to meet seller, and Ebay deserves the fees that come from the seller when they sell their product. It feels like we are cheating Ebay out of their profits, like some sellers do by inflating their shipping charge and reducing the price. I want Ebay to stay in business, so I don`t like to see them cheated.
This also feels like a "kick back". Like a purchasing agent who awards contracts to suppliers with the largest bribes. The greedy purchasing agent is hurting the company, maybe hurting product quality, and probably hurting the consumer in the long run.
You rarely get someting for nothing, so think about who is getting hurt is this transaction. After you pay Ebay, it is no longer your money that you are getting back. It is Ebay`s money, and Big Crumbs is getting some of it.
Ebay is paying Big Crumbs to find new business for them, not convert old business.
