Jewel Review – Cashback Shopping Portal For Luxury Brands

Jewel is a new shopping portal that offers cash back, to differentiate themselves from the hordes of other similar sites such as eBates and Topcashback they focus exclusively on luxury brands.  One of the reasons they have decided to focus on this luxury market is that some luxury retailers are hesitant to show on other cash back sites as not all of the other listed retailers are ‘on-brand’. They also give 1% of gross profits to charities like The Empowerment Plan and Charity Water.

Unique Brands

Because they only show luxury brands Jewel claims that they have been able to forge partnerships with retailers that don’t normally show on other cash back sites. According to Jewel approximately 20% of their listed retailers are unique to them and not found on other portals. Some examples are as follows:

  • Serena & Lily
  • Glossier
  • Carbon38

Referral Program

They offer a referral program, new users will receive $5 when using a referral link (I believe they receive this even if they don’t use a referral link) and the person referring will receive $5 for every person who signs up and makes a qualified purchase. A qualified purchase is any purchase that earns at least $10 in cash back. Feel free to use my link found here. Please don’t post your own links in the comments of this post as I’d like to keep that for discussion of this portal, you can instead share them in the comments of this linked post.

Our Verdict

Shopping portals are so common these days, so opening a new one with any point of difference is difficult. It’s nice to see Jewel focusing on luxury brands and bringing some brands in that aren’t found on other portals. If they focus on that then I can see them having some success but I do think there will be issues getting more luxury brands on board. That being said it might be worth signing up if you shop at brands that are found on Jewel but not on other portals. As always I recommend using a site like cashbackmonitor to ensure you’re getting the best rates possible.

I used Jewel for high value jewelry item and received a great cash back. The highest of all other cash back sites I know.

Just a data point. Logged on to use this shopping portal the first time because topcashback showed them at the highest payout. Went to the Ray ban page and the item I was looking at was $50 more through the portal. Logged out and logged back in with topcashback and the lower price was shown.

I have been using them for a year. High cashback rates. No issues.

DO NOT USE this even if it shows that it will pay higher cash back.
I have used them 3-4 months and it showed my cashback was accumulating. But it did not payed on due date. Its been more then 3 months with multiple followup. Cashback is yet to be deposited.

Update: after writing above review, I received an email and phone call from Jewel explaining reason of pending cash back status. This time I was impressed with an effort they took to reach out to me by offering compromising solution. I would recommend them to proactively provide status to customer OR update website with status and reasoning.

I’ve been using Jewel for quite some time now. They tend to have the highest rates for cash back on practically all of the products I buy. Their website is easy to use and my cash back was deposited in my account pretty quickly.

Jewel has been the highest cash back site I can find on the clothing brands I want to buy. I discovered it before even understanding what cash back was, but now I don’t shop anyway or anywhere else. It’s THE BEST!

Do not use them… Ordered two phones from Samsung that were delivered (even provided proof) but after a month or so for being pending they zeroed out the Cashback with no response or followup. This screams scam to me

Do not use. Made a ~$1500 hotels.com purchase, after the trip it shows as “Acknowledged” — transaction acknowledged but no payout. Was a regular purchase, no additional coupons. I assume it was because it earned the usual hotels.com credit towards 10% off after 10 nights. Nowhere in terms. Took a risk to try it out, but will be going back to ebates and more trustworthy cashback sites.

Jewel Sucks

This site’s a joke. Promises high percent cashback but never actually posts any rewards from clickthroughs. I had to go back and forth with their CSR to get multiple large purchases credited, and even then they only showed up after she went out of her way to manually credit me. Their latest CSR refused to do that, and all my clickthrough purchases have been ignored, so I’ve moved on and stopped wasting my time here.
