I’ve been using ShopBack since April 2017 and have since accumulated about S$100 in cashback savings. It is stackable, meaning that store discounts and credit card cashbacks will still apply. The brands that ShopBack works with are well-known and commonly used like Grab, Shopee, Qoo10, Eatigo (cashback on a discount app!) and ASOS.
If you prefer to shop online using a desktop or notebook instead of using the ShopBack app for mobile, here’s a little time-saving hack: the ShopBack Browser extension that is compatible with Chrome (what I’m using), Safari and Firefox. After installing the web extension, it’ll become a tiny icon at the top right corner where you can browse through the top stores or access your account easily.
This web extension was made to save time and cut short on the process to earn cashback. Without the extension, you’d have to first log into ShopBack before navigating to the relevant brand in order to activate the cashback. Only heaven knows how many times I’ve missed out on collecting cashback before installing the extension.
This is one pop-up I’d gladly welcome – a friendly reminder to click for cashback activation.
Once you’ve clicked on the button, the icon turns green and cashback will be recorded.
Not only that, the ShopBack Browser extension highlights stores that are eligible for cashback in search engine results! In red! It’s neat yet attention catching. You’d have to be drunk to miss it.
Taobao with ShopBack
ShopBack has partnered Taobao so you can actually receive a very generous cashback of up to 10% when you shop at Taobao! They’ve come up with an easy to follow guide on how to use Taobao and ShopBack like a boss. It’s time to keep a wish list of items before carting out on 12/12!
The ShopBack extension helps you out with your Taobao shopping by streamlining the process. Without the extension, you will have to search for a product using the search bar in the ShopBack Taobao page before adding to cart the available products in the search results. You will then have to repeat that process by doing another search in the search bar within the ShopBack Taobao page. With the extension, the search bar is embedded in the extension itself so you only need to do your searches in the search bar. That makes it easier!
Steps to collecting CashBack
1. Sign up for a ShopBack account.
2. Add the ShopBack Browser extension to your web browser.
3. Download the ShopBack app for mobile shopping.
4. Activate and accumulate cashback for shopping! Use it for big purchases like air tickets, home appliances, hotel bookings and gadgets if you can’t be bothered to activate cashback for small, frequent purchases (Honestbee, Deliveroo, Foodpanda…)
