Avoid TopCashBack: they will find an excuse not to pay out. You’ve been warned.

+1. Same has happened multiple times with me

On big paybacks, I agree.

TopCashback Support

Hi Fathiss

I can assure you that the amount spent would not make a difference in our tracking systems. We do however find that people are more likely to look for discount codes or other offers as well if they are spending a lot of money.

Thanks,
Jack

Kind of rude to blame your customers for your service not working correctly, don’t you think?

Geo

I’ve cashed out thousands from TCB with no issues whatsoever, aside from things occasionally not tracking.

TopCashback Support

Hi Geo,

That’s good to hear! About the big payouts at least. If you get a claim in for anything that goes untracked we’ll do our best to recover this for you.

Thanks,
Jack

False. You’ll send us a generic response that you tried but merchant denied and thats that. It ends there. No courtesy gesture, nothing.
I’m fed up with you guys as I’ve had one of half a dozen purchases track.

Mark

I have not had this problem. I have cashed out more than 10K lifetime with individual transactions over 1K cask back

TopCashback Support

^This is proof that the amount you spend won’t dictate whether it tracks or not 🙂 Thanks Mark!

No issues until recently. Was expecting two payouts of a couple hundred, they sent me this:

“Please do note that they are not saying they are unable to locate your order necessarily but that it cannot be traced as originating from TopCashback. If the order number on this claim is correct then I’m afraid there is little more we can do to recover this cashback amount.”

Alan

They kept it, that’s how they operate now. DoC shouldn’t promote these scammers.

TopCashback Support

Hi Alan!

Nice conspiracy but definitely not true 🙂 If you were told it was declined then it was declined by the retailer. If we get paid then we’ll pay you! We are nothing but honest with our members and if a claim is declined, we can only offer you tips and suggestions on how to improve from that point.

Like ktn has already said, It’s only recently that they’ve had trouble with their account and we have tried our best to recover that amount. Sometimes all we can do is advise our members.

Thanks,
Jack

I don’t think you guys are taking the money, but I do think your cash back system is one of the worse ones out there. When so many users complain, instead of saying “we did nothing wrong, it must be something you did wrong”, maybe take a good look at your system and think “why DON’T some other cash back portals experience so many problems like we DO?”

Still no sign of my 10% cashback from the last Raise promotion. Filed a “lost cashback” claim, and it went straight into the black hole. I did get my other cashback, but not the “big payout”. It doesn’t show up at all – not denied, not confirmed, no explanation. The funny thing is – they do have a record of my visit, because when I went to file missing cashback claim, they had the exact time when I clicked through to Raise. I wouldn’t count on getting your cashback. Only buy something that you want regardless, and look at the cashback as a “nice surprise” if it actually happens.

TopCashback Support

Hi Alex,

We have a record of you clicking through but not of the purchase being made by the sounds of things. I can assure you that it’s not in a black hole at all but in the affiliate network. Although it can feel similar whenn waiting for a response sometimes, we’ll be sure to update you as soon as we get any further information.

We do always ask that members treat cashback as a bonus and don’t make your purchase dependant on it as we can’t guarantee something that’s being paid by the retailer and not ourselves. It’s the best frame of mind to have.

Thanks,
Jack

Roger
Roger

Amen. They will always say “you must have done something wrong” and refuse to pay out on the big transactions.

TopCashback Support

Hi Billy Bob,

We don’t find excuses at all. The reasons you get given for any declined cashback have come from the retailer. If you argue this on your claim or a ticket, we can look to see if there’s anything more we can do.

Thanks,
Jack

I’ve never used TCB but every reply you’ve made here has been an excuse… Hypocrite much?

I wonder if I can combine this with the 10% AMEX offer on my business card. I am never sure whether I have to click through the dell.com/amex link or if I still get the 10% if I go there through topcashback. I lost my Bose 35 on my last trip and would love to replace them. 17% plus 10% would make me pull the trigger.

Mark

It should work just fine. I ordered about 10K worth of stuff last week at 12%. I also received the 10% back from an amex

It worked for me using the ebates 14% on valentines day. There shouldn’t be a problem on AMEX side.

Best to screenshot topcashback page w/ 17% deal, then screenshot dell check out page.
And if you’re looking for an awesome laptop, XPS 13 rocks.
So 17% topcashback off, plus $100 per Amex Bus Card discount, plus Amex offer 10% off.

There’s a coupon on Dell’s website 50OFF699. Will using this coupon invalidate the transaction through TCB? Also, is the cashback amount calculated using the before tax or after tax total?

Anyone find something interesting to buy or any awesome deals you care to share?

I will try one other large purchase and record the transaction live. I have been burned a few too many times, but I am ready to sue (I own a law firm) if they dont pay this time (I took video of the prior transactions being denied). Enough is enough!

I’m pretty surprised that DoC didn’t post about Dell Slickdeals rebates. Based on my experience with TCB, I decided to go that route instead. For those who are interested, https://slickdeals.net/f/12830797-slickdeals-dell-home-tiered-rebate-50-off-299-99-100-off-549-99-150-off-799-99-and-200-off-999-99-free-s-h?src=SiteSearch

In general, I’m switching back to eBates/Rakuten. While their cashback % is lower, their payouts are much more reliable. They also have fewer exclusions. The cashback checks they mail have no expiration date. They even re-issued me the amount that they said I never cashed. Note, I didn’t contact them, they actually emailed me and said they noticed I never cashed one of the checks and they re-issued me my casbhack! Now that’s customer service! I also was able to get cashback *and* use 15% Rakuten code on their web site during their sale this weekend (for those who don’t know – there is 15% off site-wide coupon on Rakuten).And when I was buying my S9+ last summer, they (eBates) were running 10% cashback on samsung.com. I got that no problem. $86 in cashback.

Anyway, agree with other posted – TCB seems pretty shady to me. Kind of makes me trust DoC less.

The deal you posted is only better if your purchase amount is exactly between $550.00-$588.24 or $800.00-$882.35 or $1000.00-$1176.47. Compared to the TCB deal, it is kind of a pain to maximize properly, and I would personally rather not put in that much effort.

I agree that perhaps DoC should consider posting the slickdeals offer you mentioned, but I don’t think it should make you trust him less. Maybe he just didn’t know about it?

I also went with Ebates for my Dell purchase today over TCB. I’d rather have 15% that I actually receive, vs. 17% that I will probably never see and just get told “Sorry, it was the merchant” (which always seems to happen to me on TCB).Ebates has been great for me over the past year; TCB not so much (and that’s an understatement). The Slickdeals rebate didn’t make sense for me to use today, as what I wanted to buy was excluded, and my total was below the threshold anyway. But it’s good to know about options.

Orion

Hi Maz, is the 15% with Ebates sitewide with no exclusion?
Also this will be my first time using Ebates. Just wondering if I use a promo code would that invalidate the Ebates tracking? Thanks.

Maz
Maz

Orion Looks like Ebates is at 10% for Dell now. Regarding promo codes, Ebates will have a list of approved ones that you can use without invalidating your cashback. Using other codes *may* cause it not to be paid out (in my experience, it has paid out regardless, but it is not guaranteed if you use a code not provided by Ebates). Here’s their policy: “If you choose to use coupons and specials that are not listed on http://www.ebates.com or http://www.rakuten.com, we cannot guarantee that you will be eligible to receive an Ebates cash back reward on your purchases.”

Alex

And yes William Charles – it’s 17%, not 18%.

I’m looking at purchasing a laptop and stacking a bunch of discounts. Is my math correct?

Laptop price = ~1100
Price after Unidays student discount = $926
TCB Credit = ($157)
Amex offer (10% off) = ($92.6)
Amex Biz Plat Credit = ($100)

Net cost = $576

el_pistolero
el_pistolero

unidays discount does not work on TVs and sound bars?

Alex
Alex

I would guess you won’t get TCB if you use Unidays discount. Just guessing because it’s an “upfront” offer. You should be safe to use Amex offers because there is no way for retailer to know about it (AFAIK). Both are just conjecture. I have no clue 🙂

Ebates is showing 15% William Charles

Alex
Alex

Thanks! Still needed to buy a lens and was on the fence. Please note – 15% at Dell Consumer only (I assume Dell Home). It sounds similar to Slickdeals rebate offer – purchase *must* be from Dell Home to qualify. Look at the top of the page before you place your order and make sure there is “For Home” in the item search path, or else you likely won’t qualify.

Now need to decide – Dell and hope for 15% cashback with sales tax, or Adorama and no sales tax.. Almost cancels each other out.

Jeremy
Jeremy

You’re all welcome. This is clearly because I thought that 14% was going to be the best they would offer and I went ahead and pulled the trigger on using my Amex credit. If I had waited for 17%, it would have been 22% the next day so my apologies for not holding out longer.

Orion
Orion

Got a 2k+ spend coming up.
Is the best option to use Ebates together with the Amex 10% offer?
I heard that TCB doesn’t track as well as Ebates. Appreciate the help!
