Alternatives to Bing Cashback

June 12, 2010 · 2 comments

Now that you’ve heard that Bing Cashback is ending, you may be looking for alternative cashback programs that are like Bing. Here is a rundown of cashback sites similar to Bing, with details of who can join and how the programs work, as well as a brief sampling of cashback rates for comparison.

Alternatives to Bing Cashback

All of these programs have been around for longer than Bing Cashback, and I’ve used them myself and can recommend them as being reliable and having good customer service. The links provided to each program are my refer-a-friend or affiliate links where available.

I’ve just looked over your spreadsheet and have noticed quite a few really good sites missing like Sunshine Rewards. I’m not so sure that this is a very comprehensive list or impartial list. You probably won’t post this in your comments, but I did want to let you know.

Hi, Jeff! Thanks for taking the time to comment and I really do appreciate your trying to let me know, but I’ve been running this site for 9 years and using rewards programs for 13 years, so I’m pretty well-informed! :)
Of course this was not intended to be a complete list of every rewards program on the internet — I’m good, but I’m not THAT good! ;) It includes the cashback programs that I personally use the most and that I hear the most positive buzz about on the forums.
I don’t use Sunshine Rewards because their minimum payout is so high ($25). I don’t use Upromise because their cashout option for non-529 withdrawals requires a written letter (a hassle). I don’t use Citi’s ThankYou points because you have to use their card to get the best rate and I don’t like charging up my credit card (the temptation to not pay it off in full is too great for me). RewardZone’s shopping portal only pays in Best Buy GCs. Freeride’s shopping section is set up poorly and their customer service is reportedly very poor. There are quite a few programs I don’t cover here at all because they are set up similar to MLM schemes. There are many other legitimate cashback programs that have lower rates, have been around for a brief period of time (no history on whether you’ll ever see your payment), or have some other drawback.
So… While there are many rewards programs to choose from as an alternative to Bing Cashback, those in the spreadsheet represent, IMHO after years of using these programs, the very best options out there.
Again, thanks for commenting and I wish you the best in your online shopping adventures!
