TA @ Cashrewards

Hi all. Thought I'd share my good news story with you.

Just over two weeks ago I approached Cashrewards for this deal and immediately was born a strong bond and friendship with Andrew, the owner & MD. Two days later I again contacted Andrew for this deal. He could sense in my voice something was wrong, so I told him I'd just been given notice my job had been off-shored. He told me to get on a plane to Sydney to meet and discuss a few things with him. I was blown away. What was close to being the worst day of my life, was quite possibly turning out to be the best.

So a few days later, off I went to Sydney. We met, we spoke, and we spoke some more. We came up with a stack of ways to improve Cashrewards and make it the number 1 goto shopping website in Australia. He was even kind enough to take me to his home for lunch where I met the rest of his family. Words cannot describe how genuinely kind Andrew is. His business acumen is second to none. He offered me a job that day. It was just too good to refuse.

Out of courtesy, he also arranged a call with our very own Scotty, just so he was aware what was going on, and that there'd be no conflict of interest. I'll be performing a variety of tasks but primarily focusing on vendor negotiations, bringing in new clients, getting better deals, etc etc. Obviously, posting on OzB will not stop. I will post as a 'rep' for any Cashrewards deal, as 'associated' for deals indirectly related to Cashrewards, and of course there's all the other deals I'll continue to post as per normal. I'm not going anywhere.

I find it incredible to think I'll be earning a full-time income from doing something I absolutely love. I'll be working out of Melbourne, with regular trips to Sydney. I'm 100% committed to making this work, and I'll make sure everyone benefits. I won't leave anything unexplored.

I hope you all have a wonderful day, and looking forward to posting my very first deal as a Cashrewards rep. All the very best - TA.

    Imagine genuine job creation based on bargain hunting - this is the type of innovation and entrepreneurship that deserves support from the government, it defines the pinnacle of efficiency and innovation in a free market economy.

    TA, I don't post much, but congratulations. I saw those comments from people in the past where they thought you were making money/getting something from your posting and it saddened me to see that. It's hard for some people to think that there are those out there that just want to help others and want nothing in return. It's a weird concept because society now is all about the "joneses". Congratulations on your new job and it is great to see that you are getting paid to do something you love. I wish we could all do that. Best of luck with it all and take care.

    Congratulations TA, I am glad to hear that it has worked out for you!

    I hope your collaboration with CR can bring ARSE-mazing things.

  •  

    Hey TA - this is GREAT news…. congrats mate - glad to see what you have somehow fallen into…

    often the best roles in life find you because - if you do what you love - then the money will follow…

  •  

    Wow congratulations! You'll probably need to get even more creative with the codes now… no more arseing around. :P

    I've always appreciated your efforts - I was amazed that you would actually call up reps to ask for deals for the ozb community! Even though I don't take up the offer most of the time, I do +1 to show my appreciation. :D

    I'm glad it all worked out for you in the end. What did you used to do for a living? I've always wondered how you could keep track of so many offers so quickly, and the only explanation I could think of was that you were unemployed and lived in your parents' basement/granny flat lolololololol :P

    Good luck with it all!

    TA you are quite an admirable figure for doing what you r doing—approach and work out a deal

    If anyone possesses this talent I reckon he/she would do fine in business, which is about approaching and creating new things,
    So congrats!

  •  

    congrats TA - well deserved new chapter!!

  •  

    Congrats

  •  

    Congratulations TA. Great to see you following your passion!

  •  

    Congratulations TA :)

  •  

    Congrats man!! I don't think its a favour, you certainly deserved it. There are lot of people losing their job everyday, doesn't happen to all of them.

  •  

    congrats TA

  •  

    TA one thing you can help fix is the "pending transactions" period on CR. I've some pending since August and find I have to send an email reminder to release the transactions every few months. They've almost never come through on their own.

  •  

    One thing out of all this is CR stole our arse from under us.

  •  

    Congratulations!

    Well deserved, thank you for all the hard work, which you love! :)

  •  

    Really late to the party (just seen the EaseUS Partition deal posted on the front page), but congrats TA for such an amazing turnaround.

    I will from now go with CashRewards first when possible when it comes to cashback deals, just to show the appreciation to both TA and CR.

  •  

    runs up and gives TA a tight hug…sending good vibes your way :)

  •

    Congratulations TA, keep doin you. No one else can do it better!

    I must have been under a rock. Wel done TA. Keep up the awesome work :D

  •  

    One door closes and another one opens. Great that you can move on and be respected and appreciated for the work that you are about to do! Congratulations!

    PS How about a Coles deal to match the 5% off Woolworths eGift cards? That would be awesome!

  •  

    Good things happen to good people ;)..Very happy for you TA

  •  

    Now that you're on the inside looking out and not the outside looking in, can you fix their system. Tired of 3 month enquiries, unpaid cashback, forever pending cashback!

  •

    Congratulations TA, many years late. Due to the 6 year anniversary email from CR, I was snooping to see if TA was this Andrew guy. I finally ran across this post. Wonderful story. Hope to meet you done day but all the meetups seemed to be when I was travelling. Thanks for all you do. 💐🤗🙏

    •  

      Thank you, but I'm certainly no Andrew. I can only aspire to being like him and to what he's achieved in his life. Thanks again for the kind words and looking forward to meeting you one day soon :)
