Cashback is now available at Australian online stores
Australians can rejoice after a new cashback website Shopcred has been released. They offer cashback for over 2000 online stores including Australia’s favourite retailers including Woolworths, Harris Farm, Menulog, ASOS and The Iconic. Just visit their website, sign up and click on the store link. Purchase your products as you would normally do and checkout. Shopcred will track the payment and give you cash back after 30 days.
Another great addition is their new browser plugin. It notifies you of available cashback when you visit a store, so you’ll never miss saving money at your favourite online retailers again! The extension does even more, you can track the price trends of a product so that you know when the best time to buy it is. Another great feature is price comparison. Whenever you’re viewing a product, you can use the tool to find out if another store like eBay or Amazon offers it cheaper.
All of these features can save you up to 30% at checkout and if a coupon is available you may even be able to get 90% off big brands.

Stores all over Australia are signing up to loyalty programs as they see the benefits of rewarding customers for being loyal to their store. Around three thousand Aussie online stores have signed up, including Quiksilver, Trip A Deal, Hello Fresh and amaysim. They can offer customers between 1 – 15% off and sometimes they offer flat fee up cash bonuses like $25 for signing up on long term p
With online shopping increasing two-fold and postage times shortening, more and more Aussies are looking for the best prices all over the world and rejecting the bricks and mortar stores of the past. With the emergence of online coupons and cash back, consumers are seeing they can get a better deal. Popular bargain blogs have seen a huge increase in subscribers, as have coupon websites like RetailMeNot and Couponfollow.
The biggest drawbacks to cashback deals are the fact that it takes up to 90 days for the retailer to pay the commission. And sometimes something goes wrong in the process and the purchase isn’t tracked. This can happen when a user clicks on another website in the process or uses an adblocker before they make their purchase. Most cashback websites will provide an enquiry service so that they can chase up the purchase and try and get you the money you earned.
Even though they have some minor drawbacks, using cashback websites can save you a whole lot more than using a traditional coupon or even just haggling with a seller in their store
