Free money: How to get paid for shopping at your favourite stores

Savvy shoppers are saving big money with this simple tool.

As inflation and interest rates rise, a little extra cash in your pocket can make a big difference. Enter ShopBack's cash-back platform, which gives you money back every time you shop with your favourite stores.

When you sign up to ShopBack you can get up to 30% cash back on your online shopping at more than 2,500 sites.

Simply visit the online store of your choice through the ShopBack app or website, and once your purchase is verified, the refund you earn will be added to your ShopBack account. Then you can withdraw it via your bank or Paypal whenever you're ready.


There's no catch; when you buy from an online store via ShopBack, the store pays ShopBack a commission and ShopBack returns a chunk of that cash to you.

If you shop at eligible retailers through the app, you'll get an estimated $1,600 back in a year. It's a win-win situation, especially for your wallet.

The Iconic, Myer, Expedia, Adidas and David Jones are just some of the popular stores offering money back through the app. Plus there are regular special offers across the site from different brands including Amazon.

As if that wasn't enough, you can also earn up to 14% cash back on travel sites such as Agoda and, so you can get the best rate on your next flight or stay, and get a chunk of that cash back. Love it.

ShopBack isn't just online anymore either. They are now live in over 1,000 cafes and takeaway outlets across Sydney and Melbourne including Subway, Top Juice and Tapavino. All you need to do is sign in to your account, link a card to it, and then scan a QR code in-store to ensure your refund is credited to your account.
