[Expired] Topcashback: Get 8% Back at Raise.com (Stack with 7% Discount)

The Offer

Direct Link to offer

  • Topcashback is offering 8% back on Raise.com gift card purchases.

The Fine Print

  • Orders submitted under $20 are not eligible for commission.
  • Note that cash back will not be earned if you sell a gift card on Raise.
  • Promo codes and/or cash back cannot be earned on purchases made from the “Raise Cash Back Gift Cards” section on the Raise.com website. (Raise offers two types of gift cards: ‘Cash Back Gift Cards’ and ‘Discount Gift Cards’. Unfortunately, Raise does not let shoppers use promo codes on cards marked under ‘Raise Cash Back’ section. Promo codes and/or cash back cannot be earned on purchases made from the “Raise Cash Back Gift Cards” section on the Raise.com website.)
  • Orders submitted over $1000 are not eligible for cash back.
  • Using a promotional/coupon code not posted and approved by TopCashback. If you use a code that we have not provided you with then there is a strong chance that your cashback will be declined or go untracked to your account.
  • After you have placed over $5,000 in lifetime purchases on Raise.com, you will no longer be eligible for cash back.
  • Valid today only, 8/23/19.

Our Verdict

This stacks nicely with the 7% discount sitewide going on today with promo code SUNNY7; Topcashback clearly allows the stacking of these two. Just remember the $5,000 lifetime limit excludes a lot of us from being eligible.

Hat tip to reader Jerold

I never get cash back on Topcashback for Raise purchases by default. I have to open tickets every time. Does anyone else has the same issue?

Same. They’re awful. I default to Rakuten since at least they track things better, usually there are lower rates but it’s worth the peace of mind and time saved/hassle.

agreed. is why I like using befrugal

How long should I wait to submit the ticket? My two previous purchases through TCB (not on Raise) tracked properly and went to pending w/in 40 minutes but this one did not.

I’d wait a few days, there’s no reason to hurry. Last time they had the big 10% off promo the notifications lagged a bit (like a day) also, probably just a high volume backlog to work through.

Burton

Thanks, posted after about 6 hours which is fine by me, just longer than previous experiences. Speaking of longer, 10 weeks pending!

TopCashBack will find ANY excuse not to pay out. AVOID, and don’t listen to bloggers who are either 1) getting a commission for sending you there, or 2) well taken care of (whether they know it or not) by this scammy portal, unwittingly allowing them to keep their game going for a while.

What does #2 mean? Topcashback has always worked for me. Does that mean I’m “well taken care of.”

I have no doubt it hasn’t worked for others. I’m just saying its worked fine for me

Wow! This plus the recent 6% on BoA cash rewards is killer!

You mean you have an Amerideal?

Tim
Tim

I assume he’s just referring to 5.25% cashback for Plat Honors for Online Shopping. There’s no Amerideal for Raise.

VML

They sent out a targeted email to double rewards thru 9/30/19. Raise is an online merchant so that category temporarily yields 6%

IS SUNNY7 still working?

Yes.

TopCashback is now claiming my Raise purchases didn’t track. I have screenshots that say otherwise. TCB owes me hundreds of dollar. Curious how Rakuten shows my purchase is tracking and sends me an email showing the purchase was tracked, but TCB doesn’t. Who else is owed money by TCB?

Matthew
Matthew

I did 3 purchases, only the 1st tracked even though I went through tcb everytime.

Billy Bob

There are plenty of warnings about that happening. With TopCashBack, part of the scam is to deny a high percentage of legitimate claims. You can never know whether they actually got revenue from that merchant. It’s the perfect set up.

TCB not paying out is starting to sound like we need to file a complaint with the FTC for fraud. Too many of us are having issues that it is not a one-off problem that TCB would like to pretend it is.

Use paypal with discover for another 5%

How are you able to use Paypal on Raise? I haven’t been able to find that option.

AllenW

I think to have to validate your email and phone number under your profile. Hadn’t done it yet but I seen the option. I kinda thought it was mainly if you sold gift cards to raise.

Bob
Bob

PayPal is only available via the Raise App so you can’t stack it with TCB since TCB doesn’t launch the app and only the website

Charles

I’m confused – do you have to get gift cards worth over $20 each or can you get several gift cards as long as they add up to over $20?

RM

Charles You can definitely combine multiple cards. So $5 x 4 should be fine as long as you buy them all at the same time.

What’s the $5000 lifetime limit? Is that from TCB?

Wayne
Wayne

Purchased a little over $500.00 and TCB said didn’t track although I went through their site. Their site is saying promo codes and cash back can not be earned, so I’m thinking the deal is dead?

You misread the language. Promo codes and cash back can be earned together if you buy “Discounted Gift Cards”, but not for “Raise Cash Back Gift Cards”.

Thank you for your reply. Then there is still hope for me.

Purchased $200 with SUNNY7 at 10:30AM, tracked for $15 back at 3:30PM

Chuck, you guys probably have more credibility than any other credit/travel blogger out there. But you give a little bit of it away when you promote TCB without warning how sketchy they are in your verdict.
Just one man’s opinion.

Mine posted within a few hours but available in 10 weeks 😭

Can you explain this: After you’ve placed over $5,000 in lifetime purchases on Raise.com, you will no longer be eligible for cash back. I’ve purchased over $10,000. Does this mean I won’t get the 8%for TCB from my recent purchase?

RM
RM

Wayne Correct. Once you exceed $5,000 in lifetime purchases on Raise, you have to use other portals with higher lifetime limits — you cannot use TCB. At $10,000, you have also exceeded the limit for most other portals (e.g. Mr. Rebates), but a few like Giving Assistant and Ebates should still work.
