Money Savings TIP: Earn Discounts & Cashback while Shopping Online

Heads up: This is a long post about how I saved over PHP400 while shopping online with ShopBack and how you could EARN P200 from me. Want to shop and earn? Read on.

Who loves shopping?? Raise your hands!

MEEEE!!!
Well, I don’t really “shop” as in like spend a whole month’s income in one day to splurge myself. No. I don’t have the funds for that. But yeah, that’s the dream! 😀
I admit, shopping used to be buying this and that whenever I can. But after having two kids, shopping means sticking to my ” budget list” and trying to get as much discounts and savings as possible.
Is this needed? Is this on my list? Is this on SALE? -Usual questions I ask myself.
Yep, I’m frugal like that! 🙂
So whenever I’m “lucky” enough to spare some extra cash for myself, you bet I would definitely shop. And I would shop online. Why? Because it’s quick, affordable and has more options to choose from. And obviously, it’s more relaxing ‘coz I don’t have to chase after my kids. HA! 😉
Can you imagine me talking to a sales lady while yelling at my children to stop running?? HAHA
Anyway, I like online shopping. My usual go-to local online shops are Lazada and eBay, mainly for electronics. I only tried Zalora last Thursday (Oct. 8) and I’m still waiting for my orders to arrive. (Will post an update on this soon.)
Online shopping is really convenient, but the best part is, I just learned that with ShopBack, I get to use exclusive DISCOUNT COUPONS and EARN back a portion of my online purchases – A CASHBACK.
You mean on top of getting HUGE DISCOUNTS, I would also EARN CASH from shopping ONLINE???
ABSOLUTELY YES!
Here’s an example of their exclusive discounts from Lazada & Zalora:

How CashBack Works:

ShopBack is a cashback site established in Singapore and Malaysia and are looking toward expansion in the Philippines and the rest of Southeast Asia.
 
According to them:
 
“Our merchants reward us with a commission for referring you to shop on their site. Instead of keeping the rewards all to ourselves, we share them with you!”

So they share their commission by letting us earn back a percentage of our own sales! How cool is that?

My Personal Experience: How I Saved P250 & Earned P187.01

1. I signed up with my Facebook account.
BUT I later learned that I could have earned PHP200 bonus if I signed up under a friend’s referral. SO Sign up now and EARN PHP 200 under my referral. (Shhh this is a SECRET FRIEND OFFER!) ^_^
(Update – Additional Note: P200 Cash Bonus will be credited to your ShopBack account only after you make your first purchase. Minimum P500 total order.)
2. Then I browsed through their growing list of merchants, both local and international online shops. WOW!
 
3. And decided to click through Zalora.
4. This time, I was redirected to a new tab for ZALORA.
IMPORTANT: YOU need to stay to the redirected new tab until checkout for successful cashback. 
Meaning, they can only track your purchases and earnings through that specific tab. So if there are any errors or if you happen to close the tab before purchasing, visit ShopBack again and click through the store to make your final purchases.
5. After browsing through Zalora’s collections, I finally convinced myself that I really really need to have a new watch (after I lost mine last year) and new shoes (God, I swear I need them! FYI, these two items have been on my “personal shopping list” for months now). 
So I made my initial purchase with Zalora using their P250 discount coupon, and since I was a new customer, I earned 12% cashback on my transaction.
 
After 2 hours, I checked my ShopBack account and my cashback earnings were already reflected. PHP 87.01 cashback + PHP100 Sign up Bonus (credited after my successful initial purchase) = PHP 187.01 CASH EARNINGS. Plus, with my PHP 250 discount coupon, I saved over PHP 400 through ShopBack!
 
GREAT SAVINGS, right? OF COURSE!
If you enjoy online shopping, you will definitely love ShopBack. They offer unlimited cashback, so the more you shop, the more you earn.
So I’m inviting you to Sign Up & Earn PHP 200 Cash Bonus FROM ME. (Hello, friend!)
 
You’re Welcome! Happy Shopping! 🙂

UPDATE: I already received my items. Read my REVIEW: My First ZALORA Online Shopping Experience

    I have signed up on Cashback last month through my BPI card but haven't really shopped around yet. Soon when I want to buy a plane ticket, I might browse around their site for good deals and of course, rebates.
