MrRebates has gotten an early start on Christmas cashback increases for their members, with cash-back increases on over 300 of their most popular stores running from now through the end of the year.
With this promotion, MrRebates has set the bar for all of the other cashback programs’ holiday cashback increases.
With only a few exceptions, the cashback rates that MrRebates is offering for the merchants in this promotion is either highest or tied for highest of any of the cashback sites’ current rates.
I’ve taken a good look at the merchants and rates in this promotion and some of my recommended stores:
Avon at 7% — 5% is the next best rate elsewhere
Busted Tees at 15% — 10% elsewhere
Crate & Barrel at 5% — 3% elsewhere
David’s Cookies at 10% — 5% elsewhere
Florsheim at 7% — 5% elsewhere
FTD at 15% — 10% elsewhere
Groupon at 8% — 6% elsewhere
Kodak Gallery at 15% — 10% elsewhere
Omaha Steaks at 9% — 6% elsewhere
Restaurant.com at 30% — 20% elsewhere
ULTA at 7% — 4% elsewhere
Walgreens at 6% — 4% elsewhere
Yves Rocher at 35% — 30% elsewhere
And on top of these cashback rates, MrRebates provides coupon codes to help you save money out of pocket.
So, MrRebates is pretty much THE place to beat right now (although I haven’t gone through all of FatWallet’s promotional rates yet — they were the ones tied with MrRebates when there was an identical rate). I’m eager to see what Ebates, Memolink, and the other shopping rewards sites will be offering!
If you’re not a member of MrRebates, they’ll give you a sweet $7.50 signup bonus when you sign up with my referral link (note that this is a special offer they’re giving CompareRewards readers). FatWallet doesn’t currently have a signup bonus…(hint, hint, FW!).
