Ebates is very good. Not just for Disney trips but anything you buy online. They send you a check every month or two.

If you go to Ebates website, there should be a a Firefox button to add. You don't need to re-install firefox. Or go to add-ons in Firefox and search for Ebates. It will add the button there too.

It wants to install the ebates Firefox extension. The extension is supposed to find any applicable coupons when you are shopping on websites and present an 'Apply Coupons' button.

They are asking for your permission to add an automatic link to ebates - through your firefox browser - whenever you go to any of the sites featured on ebates. They are not asking you to add firefox. I'm an ebates user. It's legit.

Thank you everyone! I'm just extra cautious of adding or downloading anything on my computer.

I use the chrome version of the extension, and it will automatically notify you if the website you're shopping on is eligible for ebates. Just click the popup and the page reloads, so you get the $ back. We just saved $30 on tickets! (and almost $200 on the work computer I bought a couple of weeks ago!).
