Get 1% Back on Raise.com Purchases, up to $20,000 Lifetime
You can now get 1% cash back from the Ebates portal on Raise.com for up to $20,000 in lifetime purchases.
Raise has long been on shopping portals, usually at 1-2x and sometimes slightly higher. But it wasn’t useful for most of us since the terms always limited the portal to the first $1,000 in lifetime purchases. Once you’ve made $1,000 in purchases total, irrespective of having gone through the portal, you won’t earn cashback/points on any portal. (Note: We are discussing gift card buying. The portal terms for gift card selling are entirely different.)
We noticed a few portals are now showing different limits:
- Get 1% back on Ebates, up to $20,000 in lifetime purchases (Link)
- Get 1x Swagbucks, up to $5,000 in lifetime purchase (Link)
- Get 8% Shopyourway points, up to $5,000 in lifetime purchases (Link)
There are separate terms on some portals which exclude portal earnings for orders under $20 or over $1,000. Those terms might still apply, so go through Ebates and split up your orders to <$1,000 each until you hit $20,000 if lifetime purchases.
1% isn’t much, but if you buy a lot on Raise it can amount to $200 cashback total on $20,000 in purchases.
With the exception of Ebates and Swagbucks, all other cashback and mileage portals that I’ve seen still have the $1,000 lingo. It might be that they haven’t updated yet or it might be that Raise cut a special deal with Ebates and Swagbucks.
If you are signing up for a new Ebates account, consider using my Ebates referral link. You’ll get $10 after spending $25 within 90-days and I’ll get $5 or possibly more.
