Coupon Cabin Review: Get Shopping Cash Back and Coupons, Including Major Offer Each Month
Coupon Cabin is a shopping portal and coupon site which helps people save on their online shopping by earning cash back on each purchase and offering current available coupons, similar to Retailermenot.
If you’re reading this post, you’re probably familiar with shopping portals – we like to compare the best portal rates on Cashbackmonitor.com. Looking through a few rates, I didn’t find Coupon Cabin necessarily any better than other portal rates, but over time it’s possible they’ll sometimes have the best rate.
Their cash out options are interesting: they offer the regular Paypal and check options, and they also have an option to cash out via gift card with a bonus. The most interesting one is a 10% bonus when cashing out for Amazon gift card. Coupon Cabin has a $7 minimum payout.
The most interesting thing about Coupon Cabin is their daily Member Only deals. Each member can claim one Member Only deal per 30 days (max of one per store/brand per 90 days, meaning you can’t get the same store deal every 30 days, have to wait 90 days until you do the same store again). Member Only deals are typically something like ‘spend $75 at Merchant X and get $75 back’ or ‘spend $100 at Merchant Y and get $100 back’. Each offer will have a limit of only a dozen or two dozen which can be claimed by members – first to claim gets it.
Sample deals include $100 back when you spend $100 on Amazon – yup, this came out yesterday, but got grabbed up in seconds. Other offers you may find are $75 back with $75 Sephora or Birchbox or Shutterfly purchase. Another one that’s come up is to get $50 back with $50 spent at 1800flowers.
You’ll find these offers on the home page of the site. You can ‘Claim Offer’ to lock it in and give you some time to go shopping. Any offer that you claim but do not redeem will still count towards your limits. To see offers you have successfully claimed visit your Saved Offers page. Those who’ve been a member for longer might be able to do more than one Member Only deal per month.
Truth is that these Member Only deals are even better than free shopping spend, it’s actually a bit of a moneymaker if you choose to redeem for Amazon gift cards at a 10% bonus, e.g. spend $75 at Sephora and get $75 back in Coupon Cabin dollars, then redeem that cash back for $82.50 in Amazon gift card.
There is no signup bonus or referral bonus for Coupon Cabin, though you can install their Chrome extension (which they call Sidekick) to get a $2 bonus. You can also get a $1 bonus for reading their tips in the activity page.
Coupon Cabin is quick to do IP address blocks (which need a request to unblock) so try not poking around the site too much in quick succession. Writing a post for DoC, for example, is a good way of getting your IP blocked.
(Updated 12/27/19): They’ve added a limit of $300 per rolling 52-weeks on how much you can earn from member-only deals.
