SAN FRANCISCO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Ebates Inc., the owner and operator of the world's most rewarding shopping programs, today announced the acquisition of Extrabux, a free, comparison shopping website where consumers discover the best prices, find coupons, and earn cash back on their online purchases.
