Our Verdict

Topcashback runs this offer with us semi regularly, this is the highest sign up bonus they have offered. Previous best was $20 and that was also only available to our readers, normal bonus is $10 or nothing. The reason the bonus is higher than normal is that we don’t receive anything if you sign up for this offer, instead we’ve passed the full $25 to our readers. We always try to do these types of deals with companies, but very few show any interest. One of the reasons I love Topcashback is they have the same mindset as we do, they give users 100% of a store’s commission back as cash back. They make money through separate advertising banners  ‘our list stores’ among other ways. I find that Topcashback rates are consistently better than other shopping portals and it’s the portal I use the most often.

In addition when you cash out you can also get bonuses if you cash out for something other than cash:

  • Visa (5% bonus)
  • Amazon Gift Card (3% bonus)
  • American Express® Reward Card (3% bonus)
  • Gap eGiftCard (5% bonus)
  • Nike eGiftcard (5%)
  • Hotels.com eGiftcard (5%)
  • Petco eGiftcard (5%)

If you want to see more brands & websites offer our readers increased bonuses like this then there are two things you can do:

  • Sign up if you don’t have have an account
  • Share this with others

You can view our full review of Topcashback by clicking here. I know some readers have had issues in the past, keep in mind money earned from Topcashback doesn’t become payable until they receive the money from the merchant so the wait times can be longer than other sites. I think the increased cashback rates are worth the wait times, but YMMV. As always make sure you follow our tips to ensure portals track correctly. If you have any unresolved issues with TCB then submit a support request here. They will also be in the comments section answering any questions readers might have.

Beware folks – small amounts TCB works great. Large purchases almost always have issues with tracking and eventually not getting paid for one reason or other. I admire DOC but have no love for this affiliate.

C

Sad to say, I wholly concur. I have had so many problems with TCB that I just decided to abandon them permanently – the last case made me so mad that I lodged regulatory complaints.

I would say 1 in 2 to 3 of my clickthroughs with them have not been paid, even though they show the clickthrough and I take extreme measures to make sure that I have clicked through *only* through them and that my browser is free of other visit records. Every time I complained (and the click-through is recorded on their site), they simply deny, say the merchant claimed I did not click through, and leave it at that – and no amount of documentation or back and forth will change their minds. The only time they have paid out is this recent case when I complained to a few agencies, including Consumer Protections of NJ. The problems were so pervasive that I can only assume they are purposeful.

For the record, I have had zero problems so far with either Ebates or Slick Deals.

TopCashback Support

Hi Peter/C

I can understand the frustration when cashback amounts go untracked or declined to your account but I can assure you that the amount you have spent won’t make any difference in the progression of your cashback or it tracking to your account. This is more speculation rather than fact since we see a lot of transactions of high value paid out to our members on a regular basis.

The main difference we see with cashback sites is how much is passed across to their members and in our case, we prefer to pass on as much as possible to begin with so that members can save as much as possible on each order. Having said this, it does mean that we need to wait for payment from the retailer and if they decline this, we can only pass that information on to yourself. What you may not be aware of is that some cashback sites won’t give you as much as they can but instead keep a slice of the cashback they got paid for your order in order to pay you again further down the line if you are declined cashback by the network and merchant.

So whilst we will always try our best to recover the cashback amount you expected, ultimately we can only pass on the details given to us by the retailer and hope that this has a cashback amount attached.

Thanks,
Jack

At the end of the day, it still means I earn more with a site like eBates.

While they may have a slightly lower cashback, they have always paid out even in the rare case I’ve had an issue. With TCB, you just get a SOL response. This happened to me on three Amazon device purchases and on a large eBags purchase in the last few months, in addition to a 2017 Best Buy purchase that took an absurd 10 months to resolve.

Peter

This. Thank you!!

I am going to cite you and copy your comment everytime i see TCB. Their SOL response negates all benefits. Repeating what you wrote – It is mathematically far wiser to get paid little lower for CBs versus getting nothing. I see they have their reprsentatives in this discussion and I would encourage them to go back and figure out why they SOL and others don’t. Sorry for my harsh opinion. Too many people have been burnt by Topcashback.

TopCashback Support

Hi AnameOfaguy,

I do know where you are coming from and when cashback isn’t awarded, it means you have paid slightly more than you wanted to for your order but at the end of the day these sorts of things happen across all cashback websites at some point as we all use the same affiliate networking systems and probably the same networks all together. We see plenty of cases were the same might have happened at another website and it’s caused them to then come shop through our portals. A lot of it can be down to finding what works best for you in these cases and where you have had the best experiences but different business models mean that different outcomes will arise from the unsuccessful amounts of cashback. There are members of TopCashback that have never had a problem and earned $1,000s so we must be doing something right! I just ask that you don’t let one bad experience rule us out.

Thanks,
Jack

Hi Jack, I appreciate that reality, but in the rare case I had an issue with eBates, they still paid out as a good faith gesture. In the end, I’m better served there than by the company that effectively says “sorry, not sorry.”

Big fan of TCB. Moved to them after I was having trouble with Swagbucks. $25 bonus is nothing to scoff at either!

New to site and just wanted to understand the acronym: YMMV

Your Mileage May Vary. Meaning that it doesn’t work for everyone.

Does TCB honor rebates for Hotels.com GC spend?

TopCashback Support

Hi SOZ,

I’m afraid we don’t offer cashback when you buy a Gift Card at Hotels.com but if you use one to pay for your booking, you’ll receive cashback on any amount left over which you spend by debit/credit card.

I hope this helps,
Jack

Lol. I literally signed up there yesterday with no sign up bonus. I did get 8% CB on my auto parts order though.

Topcash takes about 14 weeks to pay out. Not acceptable

I have a lot of respect for you DOC, but have to agree with the other readers here. TCB is very slow in getting paid. Had to wait months.

Abey

Damn I signed up a week ago (used Ebates before) without a signup bonus.

TopCashback Support

Hi Abey,

I wish there was something I could do for you here but if you signed up before seeing this offer then there is very little we can do in these cases.

Thanks,
Jack

I signed up last time when you guys had this same offer (May 2018). And, I’ve been very happy with TCB. All of my purchase have been tracked so far with TBC and they even have a merchant (Hostelworld) which is not present on any other cashback portal. Thanks DOC!

TopCashback Support

That’s great news, Benji 🙂 We’re happy that you’re happy!

Thanks,
Jack

They used to be a good company, now they operate just like rebate houses. Deny cash back randomly, refuse to solve issues and reply with the usual crap. They may have the highest CB %, but if they deny, it’s all just statistic.

TopCashback Support

Hi Andy,

I can assure you that it’s not random and if any cashback is declined then it’s a decision from the retailer, most likely down to some terms and conditions not being met. We can usually contest this for you but the decision is the retailers to make.

Thanks,
Jack

I’d stay away from them (maybe get the $25 if you’d like to then stay away?).

My experience is that TCB routinely advertises the highest % or $ of cashback to lure people in, but tracks less than half of the purchases correctly (some times nothing at all, many times totally incorrect amount).

One usually have to waste a lot of time to fight them in order to get similar or less amount of actual (still, actual will be very different from TCB’s advertised rates whether you fight them or not) cashback as other more reputable cash back sites (such as ebates).

TopCashback Support

Hi Nick,

There’s no fighting involved with TopCashback. If we get paid then we’ll pay you, if we can’t then we’ll contest it with the network but the decision does lie with them ultimately. We are able to offer higher rates to our members because we pass on everything we receive and don’t pay out on amounts that aren’t seen as eligible.

Thanks,
Jack

No need for such ineffective damage control here TCB, this is literally what your incompetent ‘customer service representatives’ are capable of, copy and pasting FAQs without resolving any real issue, all while pocketing not only the cash back and whatever extra the merchant have paid TCB on top of the ‘nominated’ cash back.

So many have recounted very similar (negative) experiences which further reinforced my conviction that TCB is not a up standing company worth dealing (fighting) with.

I again would like to urge people to stay away from TCB (maybe with the exception of getting the $25 initial bonus if you are convinced that they’ll let you actually get anything into your bank/paypal accounts).

Would also like to see DOC (@William Charles) highlight the, to put it very nicely, “YMMV-ness” involved with TCB. I always trusted the useful info DOC has provided and used TCB for the past few months purely due to the last DOC exclusive ‘sign up bonus’ from TCB. The result? loss of quite a bit of otherwise easily attainable cash back. I should have done my home work researching what TCB is actually like rather than just clicking on any link DOC has provided, but this none the less has certain have damaged my trust in DOC.

This is the worst cash back company. Deny cash back randomly with pointless canned responses, avoid them!

TopCashback Support

Hi Adam,

The reasons you are given aren’t random. They come from the retailer and we only pass on the reasons they share with us. It’s always worth reading through the terms and conditions as well at the bottom of the retailer’s page.

Thanks,
Jack

PSA: Last time this was offered, I did not receive the signup bonus after fulfilling the requirements. When I inquired, they told me my account was created a couple hours after the promotion ended. I’m not sure if this was true, but if it is, it means they left the promotional page up long after it would not be honored (it was still up when I checked the link after the inquiry weeks later).

So, if you sign up, I’d recommend double-checking the details to ensure you are within the time period, and then screenshotting your confirmation to keep until you get the bonus.

I am confused. Is the offer still valid? The topcashback website says, “Offer Expires February 8th 2018,” but The Fine Print here says, “Offer expires February 8th, 2019.”

Beware folks, and Site-Owner, stop promoting such fraud websites. I have nearly $475 in CB pending and i opted for cashout during December increased payout bonus. To this date i have not received my Visa e card. They wanted me to send receipts of purchases, which i did. Now they want me to send a copy of my ID (driver’s license or passport).

Ofcourse i am not sending any such confidential document to this fraud website as i am concerned about Identity theft and who the F are they to ask me for such personal documents?………So do not sign up for this FRAUD Cheater website……Other sites are lot better…..But You may sign up and be ready to face such issue…….

Any way i can sue them and report them to anyone like BBB or CPFB to recover my cashback they are not paying?
