How to get cash-back on booking travel

In this guide we take a look at CashRewards, and how you can save money using their online shopping portal.

What Is CashRewards?

Cashrewards is popular Australian shopping portal, featuring 1000+ leading retail partners. In a nutshell, you can sign up for a free account and earn a variable percentage of ‘cashback’ from partner purchases. This is real cash, paid back into your bank account after an approved purchase.

The site is essentially a giant affiliate network, except the unique diffeence of Cashrewards is consumers now benefit in a share of the commission profits, aka: the ‘cashback’ incentive.

This is a great way to earn money back from everyday purchases, especially travel.

TIP: Keep an eye out for BONUS % offers
