Regardless of your walk of life, chances are, every so often you make a purchase online. Wouldn’t it be cool if you could get more from that than what you actually buy? What if there were a way you could not only shop online, but get some cash back for it, too?

Ebates gives you exactly that. You can go on their website and get redirected to the store of your choosing, or you can install their extension to your browser which lets you know if a store is eligible for cash back as soon as the website loads. From there, you can shop as you normally would, making sure that Ebates is active when you check out. Your cash back is added to your account, and you get your balance every quarter through a “Big Fat Check” or PayPal (there’s a minimum of US$ 5, though).


On top of the online rebates, Ebates also shows you deals and coupons for online retailers, and even lets you get cash back in some stores. That’s so much added to something you would probably do anyway. Check it out and start earning now!

Lenovo offers the most affordable GTX 1050-equipped laptop

Good for gaming and editing

Published

on

If you’re looking for a new laptop that can handle demanding tasks, you might want to take advantage of Lenovo‘s offer for the IdeaPad 330. For just under forty thousand pesos, you could have your own 15-inch laptop with discrete graphics and fast processor.

Lenovo is marketing the decently specced IdeaPad 330 for casual gamers or individuals looking for a powerful laptop that can do video and photo editing with ease. The laptop mainly features an Intel Core i5-8300H processor and NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 graphics. Basically, Lenovo’s notebook has more than enough power than a conventional notebook in its price range.


Completing the specs sheet are the 15.6-inch Full HD display, 4GB DDR4 memory, and 1TB of storage. The laptop is also equipped with a plethora of ports including HDMI, full-size USB, and SD card reader.

You may get the Lenovo IdeaPad 330 for PhP 39,995 exclusively at the Legion Concept Store in SM North EDSA. Keep in mind that this is a limited offer until March 31, 2019. The laptop retails for PhP 47,495 in other stores, so you’re getting a pretty good discount during the promo period.

To make the deal even better, Lenovo is throwing in PhP 9,000 worth of freebies. This includes a JBL Clip 2, a Lenovo backpack, and Lenovo Accidental Daming Protection (ADP) on top of the 2-year warranty.

We already got our hands on one late last year. You may read our thoughts on the IdeaPad 330 here.

8 great games to buy at the Steam Lunar New Year Sale

Get lucky this year by playing some critically acclaimed games

Published

on

Lunar New Year is upon us, and all around the world communities are celebrating the Year of the Pig. Steam is no different. The sale may have started a few days ago, but it’ll be running until the 12th, so there’s still time to take advantage of what it has to offer.

This year, goodies come in the form of tokens in a virtual ang pao or red envelope. The initial number you get is based on previous spending on Steam, but buying games during this period nets you more tokens, which you then exchange for neat little profile changes, a badge, and even additional discounts.


Here are some ideas on what to spend it all on:

Celeste (25% off)

US$ 19.99 / US$ 14.99

You’ve probably already heard about Celeste, the award-winning game from small-time developer Matt Makes Games. If you haven’t already had the chance to play this challenging and heartfelt platformer, now’s the time to get it. It won Best Independent Game and Games for Impact at the recent Game Awards, and was the only indie in the running for Game of the Year alongside juggernauts like God of War and Red Dead Redemption 2. It’s definitely something special.

A Hat in Time (45% off) 

US$ 29.99 / US$ 16.49

The self-styled “cute-as-heck” 3D platforming game may be coming to the Nintendo Switch soon, but those eager to experience it earlier have a 45 percent discount to look forward to this sale. Recently reaching the milestone of one million copies sold across multiple platforms, Gears for Breakfast’s tale about a time-travelling, hat-stitching girl is a charming ode to N64 and GameCube classics.

Slime Rancher (50% off)

US$ 19.99 / US$ 9.99

The surprise simulation adventure hit is now 50 percent off, and for the price of around US$ 10, you too can experience what it’s like to be a plucky young farmer raising slime out in space. Originally launched in Early Access in 2016, Monomi Park has kept updates coming for the full release, with a free DLC released last December and regular events throughout the year. Plus, it’s rated “Overwhelmingly Positive” on Steam from more than 20,000 reviews.

Pillars of Eternity II: Deadfire (34% off)

US$ 49.99 / US$ 32.99

The sequel to 2015’s Pillars of Eternity is now 34 percent off. A story-rich RPG, it was recently nominated for Best Storytelling and PC Game of the Year in the 2018 Golden Joystick Awards, and was in the running for Best Role-Playing Game at the Game Awards, as well. Battles are flashy and tactical, and the game boasts top-notch voice acting full of familiar names. You don’t need to have played the first Pillars to enjoy this one, but if you do want to experience it first, a bundle containing both games is also on sale.

Undertale (60% off)

US$ 9.99 / US$ 3.99

Who hasn’t heard of Undertale? As THE indie game of 2015, the critically acclaimed pixel RPG presents you with a unique premise: the ability to choose whether or not you defeat the monsters you encounter. With a Japanese translation and Switch release last year, as well as the surprise free release of followup Delta Rune, you can say Undertale is back — but really, it never left. Anyone interested in diving in can enjoy a 60 percent discount

Subnautica (30% off)

US$ 24.99 / US$ 17.49

The open-sea exploration game was originally released for Early Access five years ago, but has since grown into a behemoth in the single-player survival game scene. The winner of PC Game of the Year and Breakthrough Award at the Golden Joystick Awards, it takes traditional open-world mechanics and takes it to new depths, inspiring fresh new awes and terrors.

Hellblade: Senua’s Sacrifice (50% off)

US$ 29.99 / US$ 14.99

Ninja Theory’s first self-published independent game made waves with its nuanced and thoughtful depiction of an individual’s struggles with mental health. This paired with its folklore and mythology-inspired setting, action-adventure gameplay, and stunning landscapes won it numerous accolades from the Game Awards, the Independent Game Developers’ Association, and more.

Cuphead (20% off)

US$ 19.99 / US$ 15.99

Prepare to rage. Cuphead is a difficult and sometimes frustrating run-and-gun shooter with no mercy for those who can’t adapt to attack patterns, but for those up for a challenge, it’s a godsend. From the incredible 2D retro cartoon art direction to the precision of controls, Cuphead’s award-winning game design is a masterclass in wrapping everything up into a neat package.
