Giving Assistant – Not Your Traditional Cash Back Site
For many of us, making purchases online is the way to shop. It’s time-saving, cost-effective and means money savings – if you know what you’re doing. Though, with the Internet being flooded with many cash back sites, it’s often hard to decide which site to shop through to get the most back on your purchase. This is where you’ll find Giving Assistant not being your traditional cash back site – they are different on several levels.
It’s All About Giving Back
For starters, Giving Assistant makes no commission from your sales. They give all their commission to you (not just part of it), when you shop through their site. And, you don’t have to do anything extra on your part to get the higher cash back rate.
Do you see the cash back you’ll receive when shopping at Staples.com? That’s a great cash back rate. Plus, there are several coupon/promo codes to utilize as well, for Staples.com. Other stores that you may frequently shop at, can be found at Giving Assistant too.
In addition, Giving Assistant also has coupon/promo codes to utilize, if there is one available for the site you’re buying from. I didn’t find a site that didn’t have this perk.
And, of course, these all-time favorites are part of their program:
And get this! For every coupon/promo code you use found on the Giving Assistant site, Giving Assistant will donate a meal to a needy family.
Donate to Charity
Let’s take all this a step further. Let’s say you’re someone who likes to donate to charity. Rather than having to do that all on your own, Giving Assistant can be set up so that all or part of the cash back that you’d received on a purchase – goes to your chosen charity.
Charities to choose from are bountiful…here’s a few:
- Salvation Army
- High Hopes
- Make A Wish
- Several Ministries
- St. Jude Hospital Inc.
Submit a Coupon/Promo Code
Sharing is caring. Have a coupon you want to share to a store found on Giving Assistant? It’s a task easily done. Find the store on the site and look for the link that takes you to submitting the code (at the time of this writing – they’re found at the bottom on the right-hand side of the specific store’s page.
Finally, one thing going for the Giving assistant site is that for each store on their site, they (Giving Assistant) gives the low-down for the site. For example, you’ll know what the cash back tier is (if the store is one that has cash back limits set for different departments…IE: Amazon), what the shipping policy is, what the return policy is. And, you’ll know what their Donation Promise is for that site (if that applies).
