What's the basic premise of cash back sites?
Get paid to shop. When you use the cash back sites' referral links to make a purchase at your favorite merchants, they are paid a commission. In turn, they pass that commission on to you as cash back. The more you buy, the more you get back. On top of that, all cash back sites are 100% FREE.
How does Cash Back Shopping work in detail?
There are 4 EASY steps:
  • 1.Find. Simply choose your merchant that you would like to buy from either by browsing by category or searching by merchant name on CashReporter.com. Then click through to the cash back site you'd like to use.
  • 2.Sign Up or Sign In. When you get to your chosen cash back site, sign up for an account. It's always FREE to join and sometimes there are even sign up bonuses. When you create an account, be sure to use your correct address as this is often where your checks are sent. If you are already a member of the chosen cash back site, simply login.
  • 3.Shop. After you click through to the merchant's site, be sure to complete a purchase in that shopping session. The cash back site you chose will capture your purchase info via a cookie to confirm your purchase.

Why go to CashReporter.com first instead of going directly to specific cash back sites?
We offer a comprehensive list of the best cash back sites on the Internet. Not all sites offer the same amount back so to ensure you get the best savings, always start with CashReporter.com before making a purchase.
Do I earn on shipping fees and taxes? How are discounts applied?
No. The cash back you earn is based on the net purchase price which excludes shipping and taxes. The net amount is the purchase amount after any discounts are applied. So if you buy an item for $100 and apply a $10 off coupon code, you would earn cash back based on the $90 net amount.
Are the prices different when buying through a cash back site?
No. Your shopping experience would be exactly the same as if you were going to the merchant directly so all prices will be the same.
