With the internet, shopping for almost anything and everything has become incredibly easy. Whether you want to book flight tickets, shop for groceries, buy clothes or even book a taxi, chances are, there is a website or app for it. The ease of the internet also means that it’s easier for online stores and other online players to partner with one another to provide the best deals for consumers.
By now, you’ve surely heard of ShopBack
The online shopping site that provides cashback for many popular online shopping merchants. Also acting as a discovery platform, ShopBack enables customers to find and shop from new merchants. ShopBack earns commissions for every order that goes through their site, and part of the commission is given to the customer as cashback.
Simply go to the ShopBack site, click through to the merchant you want to shop from, shop as per normal and the cashback will be credited to your account within 48 hours.
Everyone knows, cashback with Lazada and ASOS right?
Yes those two, but that’s not all. With so many online stores available, it’s easy to lose track of the sites that you can earn cashback from and forget to make a click through from ShopBack.
Here are 7 stores that you didn’t know you could save money with ShopBack:
1. Fly World-Class with Singapore Airlines
Earlier this year, ShopBack tied up with Singapore Airlines to provide travellers with 0.5% cashback for all flights originating from Singapore. Whether you’re travelling for business or for pleasure, ShopBack provides cashback for all flights on Singapore Airlines, including First Class, Business Class, Economy Class, and also the Singapore Airline Suites and Premium Economy Class.
While 0.5% cashback doesn’t seem like much, to put it into perspective, it actually means you can get $5 money-back on a SGD$1,000 world-class and internationally-acclaimed airline flight ticket.
2. Watch your favourite movies at Cathay Cineplexes
For regular movie watchers, catching the latest blockbusters in the cinema can add quite a bit to your monthly expenditure. ShopBack provides 4% cashback for every standard ticket purchase so you can earn a bit of money back every time you book a movie through Cathay Cineplexes.
The ShopBack App also aggregates all the available movie timings in Singapore so you can compare timings easily, and know when cashback is available.
3. Get around town with Uber and Grab
Getting around our Lion City has become cheaper and incredibly convenient with popular ride-hailing apps like Uber and Grab gracing our shores. To make things even more affordable and convenient, ShopBack provides cashback for both Uber and Grab through its mobile app.
Simply click-through from the ShopBack app and book your rides as per normal through the Uber and Grab apps respectively to enjoy $0.20 cashback. Cashback applies not only to UberX and GrabTaxi rides, but also UberPool, GrabShare and other rides. If you’re feeling peckish, UberEats awards you up to $10 cashback for your food orders.
4. Shop and ship globally through vPost
Many international online stores from the US and Europe do not typically ship to Singapore. Thus, we have to utilise forwarders to get our online shopping delivered to us. One of the most popular forwarders in Singapore is vPost and ShopBack has recently brought the forwarder on board as one of its merchants.
Purchase items from member stores in USA, Europe, China and Japan and earn 0.5% cashback on your vPost global shipping costs.
5. Hit the gym with Nike
Whether you’re an athlete or just your typical sneakerhead, your eyes might light up with the mention of this international sports label and one of ShopBack’s merchants.
Order a new set of yoga gear or your own customised pair of Nike sneakers and earn 2% cashback for every transaction.
6. Order fresh groceries from HonestBee
Imagine having to lug bags of fresh produce, toiletries and daily necessities from the supermarket back home. Such a chore! With online shopping, stores like Honestbee take the physical work out of grocery shopping! A concierge shopper does the work for you and delivers your groceries straight to your doorstep.
Now with ShopBack, you can also earn up to 4% cashback for every Honestbee order.
7. Sign up for Spotify x Singtel Music
For those who can’t live without music, ShopBack and Singtel Music make it possible for you to enjoy a Spotify subscription at an affordable rate. How? By giving you $5 cashback for your Spotify subscription (minimum 3 months) or $10 cashback for a 12-month Spotify Premium subscription.
But it’s hard to keep track of the times we can get cashback
ShopBack now provides cashback for over 1300 local, regional and international merchants so keeping track of your favourite stores you can earn additional cashback from can be a challenge. You wouldn’t want to risk missing out on a few dollars of savings!
