Do you think you know everything about saving money on? Maybe not. I recently discovered a few methods that are not widely known, both with cash back options. But I suspect that both benefits will soon expire (or at least decrease), so if you want to buy something now, take advantage of it quickly. (While you are busy, you must .)
Get 10% money back on Amazon devices
I am a old fan of cashback services such as Dosh, Rakuten (formerly Ebates) and TopCashback, which I use all year round to get discounts on almost everything I buy.
At the moment, TopCashback has a generally good offer: 10% money back on Amazon devices . That means products such as smart Echo speakers, smart Echo Show screens, Fire TV sticks, Fire tablets and Kindle e-readers. Many of those devices were for sale last week, but are now back to the normal price. So here's your chance to get a discount again.
If you do not have a TopCashback account, you must sign up for one. (It's free and requires little more than your name and email address.) Then visit that TopCashback page for Amazon and click on Get Cashback . That takes you to Amazon, where you normally shop. Shortly after you have made your purchase, you should receive an email confirming that TopCashback has recorded it. (Important: do not use an ad-blocker during this process, otherwise your purchase may not be recorded .)
It is worth noting thatbut if you don't want to wait, this option now offers you the best deals. I suspect that TopCashback and other money-back services will lower their discount rates as soon as the big sale hits.
Pro-tip: the use of TopCashback (or any other money-back service) does not affect the money-back you get from whatever credit card you use to make your purchases. For example, like this:
Get up to 20% cash back from the Amazon Visa card
If you have the Amazon Prime Visa card, you know that it will give you a 5% discount on your Amazon purchases. However, you can earn back up to 15% extra on top of certain items for a limited time.
These money-back shots are available for a variety of products including Roku streamers, Canon cameras, Samsung phones, musical instruments, furniture, and more.
For example, the 2018 Roku Ultra is currently on sale for $ 86, but paying with the Amazon Visa gives you a total of 15% cash – reducing your final price to around $ 73. Similarly, the Wyze Cam Pan security camera, which almost never goes on sale, after the discount fall to $ 31.72 from its regular price of $ 37.32.
Good stuff! I'm not sure how long these cash back bonuses will last, so if you notice something, you should definitely consider pulling the trigger quickly.
