I am a self-confessed online shopping addict. Although I do not shop too much, each time I do, I could spend hours browsing different sites, and then end up making purchases for items that I may not necessarily need. I draw a clear line between my ‘needs’ and ‘wants’ but when I shop online, the line gets extremely blur.
The other day, my friend Nini shared a screenshot of her ShopBack account and she has almost a thousand Ringgit of cashback in her account.
In contrast, I only have RM1.02, which I earned last Christmas from my first purchase soon after I signed up for a ShopBack account.
I believe I would have accumulated just as much money from all the purchases I had made over the past year IF ONLY I had remembered to shop via ShopBack! Yes, I can kick myself for that.
Nevertheless, it is no use crying over spilt milk; in my case, money that I have ‘lost’. Moving forward, I’ll ensure that all my online shopping begins from ShopBack.
How does it work?
First, register for an account with ShopBack.my, the top cashback online shopping site in Malaysia. Then, from ShopBack.my website, browse through the more than five hundred online merchants from Malaysia and overseas.
Make sure that you are logged in to your ShopBack account. Once you have selected the store that you wish to shop from, click on the red ‘Shop Now’ button. You will be directed to the merchant site, where you can then browse for what you want to purchase.
For example, if you wish to shop at Lazada, begin your shopping from ShopBack.my to get the best Lazada vouchers first, then only add items to your Lazada shopping cart and check out.
By doing so, you get to enjoy cashback PLUS all the other discounts that Lazada offers, such as mobile app or credit card promotions.
Yes, the 1% to 30% cashback that we receive is literally like free cash, or if you want to look at it from a different angle, you are actually getting paid to shop online!
Your cashback is automatically added to your ShopBack account within a few days once payment has been made on the merchant’s site for your purchase(s).
What do you do with the cash growing in your ShopBack account? Transfer it to your local bank account, of course, once you have reached the minimum threshold of RM10 in redeemable cashback. Remember to cash out early and regularly as your cashback is valid for twelve months only.
Shop more, earn more
It’s such a pity that I have only earned RM1.02 with my ShopBack account thus far even though I jumped on the bandwagon early. Never mind, it gives me an excellent excuse to shop now, to earn more! Come, let’s find the latest Groupon Malaysia promo codes together.
Remember to sign up with ShopBack.my first before you shop! Don’t waste the opportunity like I did, to earn cashback . Boohoo!
