Ever since I’ve gotten a place of my own, money has been flowing out like water on renovation, appliances, furniture and cute things I probably don’t need but may look amazing in the house. Sounds familiar? Lol! This is probably why I’ve been trying my hardest to find cheaper alternatives, and save more.
This means going to the wet market for groceries, comparing prices before I buy things and asking “Do I REALLY need that?”. Omg, adulting is TOUGH.
So anyway, recently I’ve tried out and learnt the joys of Shopback. Even though I’ve heard about it from way back, I never got around to trying it out because I thought it would be too complicated. But now that I have – there’s no turning back! Let me tell you more.
How it works
Basically, Shopback gives you cashback when you shop THROUGH them. So all you have to do is to head over to their website, find the merchant you want to buy from and click on it. You will be redirected to the merchant’s website and when you make your purchase, you will get cashback!
Travelholics – REJOICE!
If you are a travel-holic (on a budget) like me, this is definitely one platform to get familiar with. I usually book my hotels from Hotels.com to get the rewards and better prices. This time, I tried using Shopback too!
Did it work? Yes it did!
After I made my booking (one night’s stay in Bali), it took a few days before the pending cashback showed up! It’ll only be redeemable after you complete your travels.
Not bad right? They also have attractive cashback for popular travel sites like Booking.com, Expedia, Jetstar and more.In addition to that, they have cashback promos every now and then here, with special increased cashback rates for a certain period of time! So make sure to look out for those.

Shopaholic? That’s cool too!
If you look at the screenshot above again, you’d realized I decided to shop too. Since I was looking for a birthday present for a girlfriend, I decided to use Shopback too. 5% cashback – why not (:
Now that I’ve used it, I must admit it’s pretty idiot-proof and simple. If clicking a couple more times will save me 5%, I’d do it – wouldn’t you? Try it for yourself and tell me which are your favourite merchants on Shopback!!
