Thanks for posting DoC! Now, before the TCB haters show up, maybe it’s a good idea to remind folks how to use tracking portals. 🙂

Don’t fall for this! They are so shady.

How exactly is it shady? I’ve made 40 TCB purchases and every one has tracked perfectly, nearing $600 total CB. Done several of these $5 bonuses in the past as well.

I have claimed a total of $6,179.10 with 95% accuracy. Seem legit to me

I’ve made over $300 with them. Not every purchase has tracked, but I’ve had mostly good experiences with them.

Six orders, two on TCB promos, none handled correctly and TCB supports was useless.

Hmmmm… I don’t see Raise.com as excluded… So, even though hotels.com is excluded, couldn’t you buy a gift card on Raise? 3% back. Sale today (FLASH). Add $5 back from TCB (which has a pretty good history of correctly tracking Raise for me….)

Tim

Good number of $25 Target GCs available on Raise, stack with FLASH code, with an extra $5 bonus ends up as a 28% discount ($25 for $17).

Target GCs are great because you can instantly drain them into your account and don’t have to worry about any seller fraud once it’s drained.

Mike
Mike

How do you “drain” to your account? I can add the gift card to my account, however the value is still on the gift card and doesn’t prevent it from someone else using it if its a plastic card or being put on someone else’s account?

Tim
Tim

Target.com has a feature where they auto-drain/merge all your giftcards into a single card, I forget exactly how to set it up but I think you have to designate one card as the ‘primary’ card.

Once you do that, any gift card you add to your account is immediately drained to $0 and it adds the balance of that card to your primary card, which presumably would be one that you pick up straight from target so no 3rd party knows the code.

There isn’t a way to ‘change’ the primary card once it’s set up – the first gift card added to a Target account becomes the primary card, and balance of any subsequently added card would immediately be merged into the primary card. So people need to be careful not to use card purchased from 3rd party as the primary one, otherwise it becomes more risky as the primary card bears all balances.

It looks like for raise.com to count you can’t use any other promo code, and they only track if the purchase is over $20.

Tim

FLASH is one of the supported promo codes listed on TCB, so it should stack AFAIK.

I got the promo on my home page. Nice find.

I got the deal in two accounts. NICE!!! These deals are always good!

For those that use Ibotta, check your “bonuses” as I have a $5 off $20 purchase with one of their online sellers. Probably targeted, but worth a check just in case.

Topcashback, it's time to pay what you owe
Topcashback, it's time to pay what you owe

How are they shady? The company owes me hundreds of dollars. I have screenshots and spreadsheets. The reps take days to respond, they don’t fully answer questions, purchases don’t track, the company expects you to use tedious forms to track sometimes small amounts, and I can go on and on. I am going to keep posting my issues until they finally pay me. Plus, google TCB, it is all over the internet.

+1. Same with me. They pay the Nickles and dimes. Not the big stuff. I’ was cheated out of a few 100 until I learned. The tease isn’t worth the cheats.
BTW, it’s not being a hater to offer your experience others. That’s what the comments are for. You’ll see a diversity here as it should be if the experiences are inconsistent.

Exactly, otherwise, it looks like you are a TCB cronnie.

I bought a Tracfone refill card that I needed from Walmart.
I get it as an email delivery saving me a trip to the store.

Because it takes 30+ days for the credit to hit my account, I write myself a note to keep track of the purchases. I don’t make many purchases.

I am also waiting for $5 from Swagbucks that should credit in early September.

GIven the time spent tracking these things I am not sure that the $5 is really worth it. Shrug.

“You can earn a maximum of $5 bonus cash back.”

Meaning it can only be used once to get the $5 bonus?

Burton

Mine tracked w/in minutes, both the $5 bonus and the standard earnings. The payouts dates are much longer than SwagBucks but I’ve made two purchases, both with bonuses (DOC new customer, this) and both tracked promptly.

which site did you shop at? I did one on ebay and I still haven’t seen it shown up after 18 hours.
