Ever Earned from Shopping Online?

Being a work-at-home parent makes you one with the house, if not the computer or laptop. There are some things you can’t always do immediately or personally that you find yourself thanking God there’s the internet.


Thank Goodness for the Internet!
When you’re hungry, and swear you’d die if you made any more piniritong stuff, you go online. When you are lonely and need someone to ease your moody antics, you go online (posting drama shit does reduce it some). When you’re incapable of shopping at the mall or just too damn tired to go through commuting, you go online.

And here I’ll stop, because I discovered something nifty on the internet, don’t we always? (besides those cute panda GIFs, of course)




I’d written about shopping online and how it’s infinitely awesome for work-at-home moms. In a nutshell, the benefits are you don’t need to sit through traffic and dish out on snacks and dinner, or get tired taking long detours just to avoid the hundreds of toy stores before reaching your favorite shoe shop. And so on and so forth.

Get Rewarded for Shopping (Yes, you heard it right!)

This week I found another “advantage” to shopping online, and it’s relatively close to spending less. In fact, and actually, it’s almost like earning for shopping online.
Enter ShopBack


cute photo huh?
As the name suggests, you get something back for shopping. At first it confused me since the site seemed to host different online stores, so the immediate reaction was, ‘Oh, it’s not an online store.’



It's a Promo Site, Not an Online Store

Apparently, it’s more of a rewards system much like the rewards club I’d joined 8share Philippines. The difference is that you don’t earn money for clicking on links and ads (like with how my Nuffnang ads work), instead you earn when you complete a transaction with any of their online store partners.


You also get to earn through Referrals!

From what I understand the cashback points are awarded to your ShopBack account, yes you have to make one to earn cashback. There’s a minimum amount required before you can cash out to your bank account, again, like with your typical rewards club. So if your local grocery store rewards you for buying groceries from them, then ShopBack similarly blesses you for shopping online through their site.

Here's how it works:




Extra Cashback this Valentine's Day!
As of now, they have quite a few partner online stores and you can see all the popular ones here. The more famous ones would be Lazada (with up to 4% cashback) and Zalora (with up to 12% cashback)It's not just clothes and gadgets that you can buy from ShopBack, Lazada and Zalora-type stores are not the only ones you'll find at their site. You can even score air fare discounts and cheap hotel deals, it was very surprising I even found Emirates and Qatar Airways at their site:



Aaaand I found that they also have a Valentine’s Day promo coming up with increased cashback and excluuusive coupon codes for some online stores.


So, yes. It’s basically a win-win-win situation and, personally, when it comes to shopping and getting more “bang for my buck” I love winning.
