5% Portal Cashback at eBay
I cover eBay deals quite often here on Miles to Memories. Sometimes with portal cashback, eBay Bucks and credit card rewards you can save a ton of money. Add in discounted eBay gift cards and savings can be astronomical.
Traditionally portals generally only pay about around 1% for most purchases on eBay. That certainly is nice, but it isn’t life changing. Well Doctor of Credit recently discovered a new portal that is paying 5% back on eBay purchases.
This new portal is called Inbox Dollar and it is actually more than just a shopping portal. You can earn money from web searches, games, surveys and of course online shopping. To be honest none of the other stuff interests me at all, however 5% back on eBay purchases is something that is very attractive.
As I detailed in my shopping portal strategy, I really don’t like to try new portals whenever I can avoid it. Of course for 5% I probably would try, however there may be a better way. Oren’s Money Saver is reporting that at least one reader has successfully matched the 5% rate from Inbox Dollar to Top Cashback.
Over the next couple of days I plan to test Inbox Dollar to make sure everything works, but as long as Top Cashback is willing to match the 5% rate I think I will continue to use them since Inbox Dollar requires you login to your account every 10 days to stay active and they supposedly send out a ton of marketing emails. Not my cup of tea.
If you are interested in signing up for Inbox Dollar you can use my referral link and earn $5. You can also use referral links from Doctor of Credit or Oren’s Money Saver (their posts are linked above) or sign-up directly.
How to Request a Top Cashback Match
Top Cashback makes it very easy to submit a cashback claim. To do so simply visit this page and fill in the relevant information. They will want to know the merchant, date, URL, product purchased and any other relevant information. In my experience they respond fairly quickly to inquiries. Note you must make your eBay purchase through them first before requesting the match.
More options and higher payouts are always a great thing. In this case the payout for eBay purchases is jumping up 4-5X more than it has been which is significant. While I’ll test Inbox Dollar as a backup, I think I’ll stick with Top Cashback as long as they continue to match other portals payouts. Do you have any experience with Inbox Dollar? Have you successfully received a Top Cashback match? Let us know in the comments.
