With the average Australian spending around $4,250 a year online, cashback sites offer an easy way to save money while shopping. ShopBack is the newest kid on on the cashback block, offering users a one-stop platform to cut the costs of those indulgent internet purchases across fashion, electronics, homeware and even travel bookings.
Without doubt it’s a smarter way to shop, so how does it work?
Simply start your shopping at ShopBack by signing up or logging into your account. Click through to your favourite online store from ShopBack and checkout as you normally would.
Cashback varies from retailer to retailer, but users can get up to 30 per cent back at over 600 brands, as well as accessing additional promotions and curated deals.
Participating stores include eBay, Booking.com, ASOS, The Iconic, Menulog, Woolworths Online, Vodafone and David Jones.
You’ll earn cashback within seven days, which can then be transferred as cash to your nominated bank or PayPal account.
If it’s a purchase you were going to make anyway, you’re essentially getting paid to shop - happy days!
Get in the habit of using it - for groceries, Uber, pet food - and it all starts to add up to a nice little savings nest. For example, a trip for two to Bali could earn around $102 back at current rates.
That's based on spending $1200 on flights and getting one per cent ($12) back through Expedia, as well as receiving six per cent ($90) back from Hotels.com on a $1500 spend.
ShopBack already has over five million members across Southeast Asia, and its focus on mobile shopping is what really sets it apart.
Where does the money come from? ShopBack’s brand partners pay them a commission for every transaction and they share their earnings with you, the customer, as cashback!
So there’s absolutely no reason why savvy shoppers shouldn’t sign up soon for bonus cashback.
From now until July 20, 2018, join ShopBack for free at this link to receive a $5 welcome bonus!
