I came across this ShopSmarter.com site when I was buying something at WalMart. They said I could get $10 cash back on my first purchase? This seems like a scam to me but the site looked pretty legit once I checked it out. For $9.97 a month you get 10% cash back at a lot of popular stores. I've used ebates a lot but the cash back is lower. If you online shop a lot, it seems like a good deal to me. I don’t know, just wanted to see if anyone’s ever heard of it before or had any reviews on the site.
But if I'm spending like $300 a month already online at WalMart and Target then that's $30 cash back every month. That's over $300 a year and I feel like most sites offer free shipping anyway since no one likes paying for shipping anymore. Do you think there's another catch? I also searched all over the ShopSmarter site and I can't seem to find any hidden terms or anything like that. I feel like this could be super useful, I'd just really like to talk to someone who's tried out the site before signing up and committing to the cost of the membership fee. I'm very interested.
Frankly, at this point you are sounding like a shill for the company, especially given that you signed up at FW just today.
They have their T&C posted. If you are happy with that then give them a try. You will have to spend $100 minimum every month within the rules they state for purchases, and have each and every one properly reported by the retailer, and Shopsmarter will have to come through on their promises to pay you just to break even in a month.
Take special notice of their terms regarding suspected resellers. How large do your monthly purchases have to be before they ban you, and keep all that CB you supposedly earned? Sounds like too many potential hassles for me to bother.
