    The $5 is over at 11:59pm and this one come on 12AM

  • I bought so many clothes before the previous Cashback ended, wish I could cancel and reorder for that extra 1% lol

  • +1

    Looks like It came in to effect at midnight then - as I looked an hour or so ago and electronics was 0%

    • +3

      Yep! Right after the other deal '$5 cashback of $50 spent' expired.

  • Pet and Baby have reverted back to 0%.

    I just purchased some pet products before midnight for the $5 bonus, so good timing there.

  • +2

    Damn, 7% on automotive.
    Just under $1000 over 4 seperate orders in last few days and now 7% cashback.

  • Hahahaha. just my luck. I had just ordered some books last week. Anyway, cest la vie. Thanks for the heads-up OP.

  • +1

    Toys? We got alot of Lego addicts here

  • Thanks OP.

  • +7

      Effective 01/06/20, cashback is ineligible on purchase of vouchers, gift cards, kindle unlimited, audible, mobile apps, subscribe & save items, prime subscriptions, and all categories/products listed at 0% cashback.

      Looks like it won't stack

      • +5

        That exclusion is for purchases of gift cards, not for payment by gift card.

        • Seems you are correct my bad!

    • +2

      Maximum $500 of gift cards per month.

      • Its still about $15 savings :-)

        To the person that negged, why though? Does he/she not like additional savings 😏

  • perfect - chasing NAS HDD drives or external drives that I can shuck drives out off - quite a few options on amazon and previously 0% cashback

  • +1

    Seems like its changed to 5% for PC/Electronics on Shopback too?

    Or has it always been that?

    • Changed, makes sense since Amazon decides what categories are included.

  • +1

    Lets hope it stays/increaes for the upcoming Prime day sales

    • +1

      Word is Amazon are postponing Prime Day until September this year!

      • Why's that?

    • +1

      But it seems like Amazon has the Quest listed under video games, not electronics, which would mean no cashback at all.

      • sure? Coz it's under the sub category of video games > PC from what I can see… can we argue that its still classified as PC? :)

  • literally bought like 100 bucks worth of books 2 hours ago but the prices have gone up so will have to get CB next time!

  • +2

    Does cashback work for items from Amazon US but purchased via Amazon AU?

    • Yes

      • -1

        Are you sure? “applicable only on items sold by Amazon AU”

    • +1

      I'm also wondering!

  • +1

    I woke up in a cold sweat because I thought I missed out on this:


    But it's the same price and a USB-C to HDMI adapter for $10.99 (Prime delivered) now with 5% cashback (but alas tax deduction in the new financial year). Almost worth an OzBargain post in itself but I'm not yet sure of quality/compatibility. Roughly 30% cheaper than the same product on eBay.

  • Bought a $200 router just last weekend. Damnit.

  • +1

    Yay for books

  • +1

    Damn, I bought new PC parts already, it was 0% :(

  • Just ordered a computer case and a power supply last night!
    Bought are only going to be delivered in August… Can I cancel and reorder?

    • +1

      Why not? you haven't been charged yet

      • Just did the reorder but one of the item is out of stock :(

  • Still waiting for games

  • Is smart phone = electronic 5%?

  • +1

    Glad to see computing stuff is back! Wonder if NAS falls in scope.. hmm

  • Dammit, I forgot about cashbacks because they had been 0% for so long.

  • And Amazon have celebrated by jacking up the price of an item I've been watching by 30% …

    • Yep 25% on the book I was watching too

  • Cheers OP :)

  • Anyone knows dehydrators is on electronics?

  • How long does it take for cashrewards to track amazon spend?

    • Mine tracked so all good!

  • Where does Garden fit under the listed categories?

  • are tablet/phone cases "electronics"?

  • +1

    When I visit the page it says that the cashback on electronics expires on the 7th of July.

    Might want to make use of it before then just to be safe

  • +1

    Did purchase electronics value $800 from Amazon and tracked by CR but amazon declined the cashback. Have sent an enquiry to cashrewards. The item has not bee shipped yet. Once receiving feedback from cashrewards, i will be deciding either to cancel the order. Never issues with CR for smaller items but when it comes to bigger value items they decline the cashback with excuses.

    • +1

      Yeah i have a similar issue. Large purchase declined! Sent an enquiry

  • Is portable drive eligible?

  • Electronics and PC no longer getting cashback again :(
