Update: There is a limited-time offer for new customers that gets you $9.90 cash back from Wal-Mart when you buy a 138 fl oz bottle of Tide liquid laundry detergent for $8.97 with free in-store pickup. Ends 7/8/15.
Visit Walmart through TopCashback, purchase a jumbo 138 fl oz bottle of Tide ‘Clean & Fresh’ (either in ‘Daybreak Fresh’ or ‘Freshing Breeze’ scent) or ‘Clean & Sensitive’ (in ‘Cool Cotton’ scent) liquid laundry detergent priced at $8.97 and within seven days $9.90 cashback will have posted in your TopCashback account.
In-store pick-up, subject to the item’s availability at the location, is free. The $9.90 should cover the cost of the product and any sales tax you may possibly be charged, effectively making the huge bottle of laundry detergent a fantastic freebie!
Within 21 days the $9.90 will turn payable and can be credited straight to your checking or PayPal account. Alternatively you could opt to be paid in an Amazon .com Gift Card, which with its 2.5% bonus on top would mean you’d get $10.14 instead of $9.90.
When you shop online these days, it’s become habit to search out a coupon or go through a shopping portal that gives a percentage back on purchases made through their links. Well, talk about a race to the bottom. Instead of rebating you part of their merchant commission, TopCashBack.com promises to rebate you all of it (and make money via ads on their website). In addition, they even have no minimum payout threshold. You wouldn’t think that would be a viable business model, but the company is already the #1 cashback site in the UK so apparently it works for them.
For example, I get over 1% back on eBay purchases. You can also get your payouts in Amazon gift certificates with a 2.5% increase in value.
If you aren’t already a member, some other portals also offer sign-up bonuses:
- eBates ($10 new user bonus after any $25+ purchase, $5 mininum cash-out)
- Mr. Rebates ($5 new user bonus, $10 minimum cash-out)
Sometimes one of these sites may privately negotiate a higher payout temporarily, so TopCashBack may not always be the highest. Also, if you use miles or points, you may prefer getting 2 points/miles per dollar back as opposed to 2 cents per dollar back. For example, I’ve been warming up to the UltimateRewards Mall (must first have a Chase Sapphire, Chase Freedom, or Chase Ink card) as 1 Ultimate Reward point is worth 1.25 cents towards travel or converts to 1 United or British Airways mile.
