While stumbling through the internet looking for cash back sites, I found a great site that will be especially helpful this holiday season. Giving Assistant is a website that gives you cash back when you shop online at your favorite stores. In addition, they will assist you in being able to give a percentage to a charity of your choice! How neat is that? I love being able to help someone else at the same time.
When you first visit the page there is a place to sign up. You can use your Facebook profile if you would like. I have found it much easier to sign up using that.
Once you have a profile created, you can choose a charity of your choice and then use the slider to decide how much cash back and donation you would like. If you need to find a charity you can look through a list on this website to learn about them.
You need to choose one of these 3 options in order to get paid. For details on when you get paid and how much you need as a balance before you get paid can all be found on Giving Assistant.
Now Let’s earn some cash back! While browsing through the website, I noticed they have quite a directory of great merchants to earn cash back from. First one I decided to look at was Sears. I use Sears a lot during the holiday time as I can get some great deals. This year I will probably do the same as not only can I earn cash back from Sears, but as a Shop Your Way member you get more rewards for shopping at Sears, so that is a double bonus.
When you click on a merchant, it will show you all the coupon offers and cash back rewards, along with some fun facts about the merchant. In addition, it also will give you information on who to contact and show you the location to add the code. I find this extremely helpful.
Make sure in the right hand corner you click the shop now, or activate button so that you can earn the cash back when you go to the website to shop. Sometimes, there will not be cash back offered at the time, but coupons will be. Any kind of savings, whether it be to save on shipping or money off an entire purchase is always helpful. Being a family of six, I have to save wherever I can and those free shipping coupons help a lot.
After you shop it typically takes around 72 hours and cash back will be shown in your account on Giving Assistant. That is a quick turn-around if you ask me!
For every qualifying purchase originated from our marketplace, Giving Assistant donates a meal to a needy family on your behalf.
The simplest definition of a ‘qualifying purchase’ is that it results in Giving Assistant being paid a referral commission from an affiliated store.
To make it all happen, we linked up as a promotional partner for thousands of stores and as a donor to the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity, Feeding America.
It makes me feel good knowing that we can help a hungry family in need.
