What is CashBack?

CashBack is a program certain websites run where customers earn CashBack rebate on purchase they make if you click thru their links to the store.

Where is CashBack Program's money coming from or really is it FREE?

Most of the CashBack programs listed by CashBackRate.com is FREE to join, with the exception of Discover program who only opens to its credit card holders. The fund traditional CashBack websites rebate you is part of the commission they received from those stores on sales led by them (orders that you placed). Let's face it, CashBack or not, the commission is already paid to someone that led you to the store, whether it's your favorite blog or forums or just search. Most of these websites are affiliated with the stores anyway and make money off your purchase. And CashBack sites are the ones that can track those leads and rebate you part of their commission.

Bing CashBack Rate at some stores is a range, e.g. 3%~8%, which rate do you list?

In short, the low end of the rate. Though multi-tier CashBack rates are pretty common accross CashBack sites, Bing is NOT able to provide description on how they categorize transaction types and assoicated CashBack rate. We don't want to you shop with bing and only HOPE to get a certain CashBack rate without solid understanding of the terms, thus we list the low end of the CashBack range.

In another word, you can choose who your referrer is on each transaction. The someone could be your wife or husband or even people who use you as referrer.

Why does Discover Program have an asterik next to it?

What is Flat CashBack deal and why are you listing them separately?

There are several reasons some stores and CashBack site list their CashBack rate as a flat fee for eligible transactions.

  • The store offers limited products or all of their products are priced much higher than CashBack dollars, such as Vacation Packages.
  • The store offers subscription service, you may not spend anything upfront, but you will get monthly bills, such as Verzion Fios
  • The store offers CashBack sites flat introductory commission, and they were able to pass a big part of the commission back to you, no matter how small the amount you spend in this store, such as Snapfish, Kodak Gallery. In this scenario, you could spend less than you would receive as CashBack and no further obligation to the store. We consider those Money Making CashBack deals and list them separatedly for you. Note the flat fee CashBack generally only applies on your first purchase as new customer.
