$5 Bonus Promo Terms:

  • To be eligible for the AUD $5 bonus, you must first activate the promotion via the main link in this post, then shop as normal via any* online store on Cashrewards.
  • Transaction must be made between 10:00AM AEDT 21/12/20 and 11:59PM AEDT 21/12/20.
  • Bonus is eligible when making a qualifying purchase of AUD $5 or more in a single transaction (inclusive of GST, after any discounts, and before shipping).
  • Bonus will not be added to your Cashrewards account at time of purchase. It will be credited separately as approved by 06/02/21.
  • Bonus is over and above the advertised store cashback rates which still apply to the transaction.
  • Transaction is valid if made online via desktop browser, Cashrewards mobile app, Cashrewards Notifier, or mobile browser.
  • Bonus is ineligible for any in-store purchases.
  • Sales may report to Cashrewards ex-GST so the amount shown in your account may be less than $5. You will still be eligible for the bonus.
  • Selected stores may report orders with multiple items as separate transactions into your Cashrewards account. These are still eligible.
  • Bonus is limited to one per Cashrewards account. Additional transactions do not qualify for additional bonuses.
  • Bonus is ineligible if you purchase from a 0% cashback store/cashback rate, if you purchase an ineligible item, or if an order is cancelled, changed, returned, rejected. *Individual store cashback terms and exclusions apply (see Amazon & AliExpress especially).
  • Fraudulent activity will result in rewards being forfeited and accounts closed.

Ensure you disable 3rd party plugins and don't click away to other sites looking for codes etc after clicking from Cashrewards as tracking will be lost (feel free to try our recently updated mobile app).

Two common questions:

  1. Will I be eligible for the bonus if I purchase anything from an Amazon category at 0% cashback? - NO (all standard store T&Cs apply)
  2. Can I use Amazon gift cards for purchase and still be eligible? - YES.

Note also that AliExpress now pays cashback on affiliate products only - see updated terms and link checker here.

    Anyone know cheap Sim cards to make up $5?

    • Telstra $10 cashback on a $15 Sim.

      Boost $3.50 cashback on a $10 Sim.

  • Does $5 worth of stuff (2 items of < $5 each but totalling > $5) from different sellers at Aliexpress and paid for in one transaction qualify?

    • I have done that with eBay items before and it worked.

      • Thanks, however I have also done that with ebay, but I want some confirmation that it applies to Aliexpress?

        • +1

          It's fine…

          Selected stores may report orders with multiple items as separate transactions into your Cashrewards account. These are still eligible.

          However, please familiarise yourself with the new AliExpress terms, as non-affiliate products are now ineligible for cashback:


          Important: Effective 20/12/20, cashback will only be eligible on purchase of affiliate products. Check product eligibility on this link by entering the product ID or URL. Ensure you click 'Shop Now' prior to purchase. Claims will not be accepted for purchase of non-affiliate products.

    Dan Murphy's, paid with PayPal, instant tracking thanks OP.

  • Hi. Can I spend $5 or has to be more than $5 ? Thanks..

    • +1

      From the deal itself:

      AUD $5 or more

  • @tightarse I purchased this item yesterday https://www.amazon.com.au/gp/product/B07DBKB3LF/ref=ppx_yo_d... from the pantry and food section for $10.90 in order to get the $10 Christmas bonus. It tracked but it got rejected today for no apparent reason? Any idea why?

    • Probably because food and pantry are 0% cashback items.

      Edit: It actually says 4% as of now.

    • Hi Floss69. Without looking into your account or transaction details, I can only assume Amazon tracked it under an ineligible category:


    • +1

      It was 4% on 20th. I was considering a purchase. it clearly states its a pantry and food item. This is a worry if you purchase something how are you to know that it will be classified as something else? Keep up informed please.

  • I have made a booking with Booking.com for next May. it's free cancellation and pay at hotel. Do I get the bonus after CB is approved? 90 days after stay? Or is this kind of transaction ineligible? It has tracked already.

    • Booking.com is not present in listed stores. So not sure if it would track.

      • Thanks. Wow that’s really sneaky! As they’re doing a big Booking.com promo and you can always get cashback on Booking.com at Cashrewards. I think this post should be edited to specify ‘available at SELECTED stores’ as it’s definitely misleading as it stands! I understand the 0% cashback etc but I have a tracked cashback purchase. Not impressed.

  • Could not believe eBay is not a store with cashback in Cashrewards… 😠

  • A question.. do I need to log-in to Amazon or target email that same email as cashreward for the cashback to work? Can I check out as a guest instead? 👍

    • +1

      Different email works. I have used that multiple times.

      • Thanks for sharing. I wonder if I can check out as a guest so I don't need to create an account??

        • Should work but not sure about that.

  • +1

    Wow my cashback transaction was tracked almost immediately after I made the purchase at Chemist Warehouse.

    • I didn't from chemist warehouse.

  • after hours of searching, this looks to be a good buy on amazon. ZZZZZZZZZZzzzzzzzzzzz


    made in australia tags. although it doesn't cover the details. It would be good just to put a secondary email on there for contact

    No eBay made this a hard search

    • +2

      Bro i can't believe you are going to spend money on that … I threw out a pile of those things. I would also pay you $5 to please not buy it.

      If you plan to shower anytime within the next 12 months, you can sign up for Prime (free), and buy a $6 shower gel? My shower month is coming up shortly, so it will come in handy…

      • throw the pile to me

        • i think i recycled it … i honestly dont think luggage tags are useful …

          think of this scenario, you've just landed in LHR and there's 7,234 black bags which look identical … it will be tough to differentiate your black back from the other 1,232,647 others, unless you have a rainbow coloured strap, or your luggage is hot pink …

    I bought a 5 pack of toothbrushes for $5.19 from Chemist Warehouse.
    Net cost is going to be 14 cents.
    Thanks TA.

    • Thanks for the tip, was just searching for something and this helped

    • Yep I got the same things. The oral B toothbrushes. Other stuff in the clearance was out of stock.

      Better than getting some junk non-name cables that I wouldn't trust.

  • +2

    Bought some wine from Liquorland. Tracked in 4 mins. Thanks TA

  • +1

    Bought a skipping rope on AliExpress for $5.23. It also tracked very quickly. Looks like Cashrewards has improved their tracking efficiency.

    • Was going to say the same thing. Last couple times almost instant tracking. Well done.

  • Selected stores may report orders with multiple items as separate transactions into your Cashrewards account. These are still eligible.

    I had 2 items on the one transaction with AliExpress. The $3.08USD item has tracked but the $1USD item is still yet to track. Previous tracking emails for AE would be for the full amount of the transaction (with multiple items) though. Hmm slightly worried it won't be eligible.

    • Please read the OP and my comment here re change in terms for AliExpress, just in case your 2nd item is ineligible.

      • Ahh shit! It turns out the 2nd item is ineligible! :(

        Damnit, now to figure out whether or not I should cancel the orders :/

  • +1

    This is awesome, though eBay is not available, choice gc is pretty good.

  • The CR gift card portal requires you to "link your credit or debit card"

    Hard pass on that.

    • Seems pretty normal. Gift cards are one of the most scammed / chargeback'd items around.

  • Thanks TA, just ordered some booze for Christmas! Bonus $5 discount doesn't hurt :)

  • Hah, got in an at 11:59!

    • You love a bit of excitement in your life.

      • +1

        Nah I'm just dumb and forgot to activate the deal on the first order

  • Bought something throug Ali well before midnight, hasn't tracked yet :(

    • Please see here.

      • Yeah, I checked before placing the order:

        "Lucky for you! This product is an affiliated product"

        Should I be worried?

  • Brought led bulb off Amazon last night, didn't track

    • Amazon is not instant tracking (takes up to 72 hours). Hopefully your purchase doesn’t fall under ‘electronics’ category, which is ineligible as per the terms.

      • Thanks, hope not, it's a desk lamp bulb

    • I ordered some soap from Amazon yesterday afternoon (double and triple checked that it was in the Beauty category, and took a screenshot as well!), but it hasn't tracked yet either which is unusual, as I normally get tracking from Amazon purchases in less than 24 hours, so am hoping I receive tracking confirmation soon.

    • Was coming hear to ask about normal Amazon tracking time. Normally other things I buy through cashrewards are almost instant track but the Amazon tracking hasn't come through yet. Looks like they generally come through after 72hrs according to TA. The baby wipes ended up pretty cheap.

      Also is there a way to check on which category something is in? For the life of me I couldn't find anything that pointed me to it last night. Baby wipes should be under baby but I guess could fit under personal hygiene as well if you think the baby is going to wipe themself….

      • +1

        The main category the product is under should display on the top left hand side of the page, just under the black banner that has Customer Service etc links, and then the sub categories are listed across the page next to that. With the actual product you're ordering, it should show (again, top left, just above product photo/s) something like Beauty > Bath and Body > Cleansers (which was shown for the soap I ordered). I find however that sometimes the latter doesn't show up when doing a search on the Amazon website and clicking on a search result, but if I search for the product + Amazon in Google then click on THAT search result, the categories display. I then add that product to my shopping list so I can put it in my cart once I click through from Cashrewards.

        UPDATE: Have just received confirmation my cashback has been tracked, took just on 24 hours to come through.

        • +1

          Ahh thank you, I was having the same issue as you, it just said 'back to results' https://imgur.com/a/SDi8iba

          I tried your google search and it then showed it under baby. However the concerning part is the search bar automatically went to health, household & personal care even though it is showing baby as the category of the item https://imgur.com/a/jcCamF9

          • +1

            @knobbs: I see what you mean - not sure why it would be doing that as you would think the category shown above the product would the main one plus subcategories. I checked the screenshot I took, and the search bar went to Beauty, same as the category listed for the product.

            And yes, I was getting the "back to results" thing too, which isn't helpful when you're trying to work out whether it's in an eligible category!

    • +1

      Over 72hrs since my purchase now and and no tracking still. Looks like I will probably have to wait the 7 days and submit a manual claim (that is if I remember).

      • Have tracking now, but looks like it was declined (probs ineligible category)

  • Do you get a confirmation email about the $5 bonus (like the previous Black Friday bonus)? Or isit just assumed with your tracking of your normal cash back?

    • The latter. You can set a reminder underneath the OP for the date the cashback is due to see if you've successfully received it.

      • +1

        Thanks! I swear I got a confirmation email for the blackfriday $10 promo recently, and thought that they must have changed their alert system.

        • +1

          I did too; that was probably a one-off due to the amount it was

        • Its easier for them this way if some of the cashbacks dont go through then most people wont remember to check anyway.

  • Anyone have a rough idea of how long it takes for Aliexpress to track? I ordered yesterday afternoon and it still hasn't tracked. The item purchased is an affiliated product.

    • Welp I guess if it hasn't tracked by now, it's probably never going to track.

      • I'm in the same boat. I even made sure not to use the aliexpress coupon incase that voided it. Anyone know if an aliexpress coupon usually cancels cashback (for next time).

    • Same issue. Still no tracking after 6 days. Made sure item was Affiliate and just checked again. Cant even submit a claim as there is no button near my store visit in history. It shows i went there though. This affiliate hooha might stop me from bothering to order from them via CB in future if its gonna be an issue though.

  • It’s ridiculous my cashback was rejected. bought the GPU holder for 18 dollars. It should be belong to tools and get 6% cashback. But they rejected, so disappointed

    • Where did you get it?

      • At Amazon

        • The GPU holder is listed under computer components category, which has 0% cashback. That's why your cashback was denied

          • @DisabledUser27274: Make sense now, TA reached out and assist me and show me that it’s indeed ineligible so I am ok with that. thanks

  • +1

    My chemist warehouse order still hasn't been tracked, appeared in click history.

    I am not sure why some people tracked so quick some didn't, I have already disabled adblocker and didn't move to other site under order finished. Something to do with browser? I am using Chrome.

  • Bought a $30 GC through the portal, cashback has already been approved. Is the bonus supposed to come around the same time as approval, or later in Feb 2021?

    • -1

      … My GC tracked but not the bonus yet… Any updates yet?

      • +2

        Did you guys read the Post?

        The answer is in bold.

        • -1

          Yes. And there's a difference between "added/ approved" and pending/tracked.

        • -1

          Yeah, my cashback was approved (in the available balance), so shouldn't the bonus now be added separately?

          • @peso255: No idea XD

          • @peso255: Well since the Terms say it will be approved by 06/02/21. I'd wait until then.

            Your cashback was approved, do you should be all good.

  • My purchase from Aliexpress still not tracked. I guess will need to add manual claim

    • +1

      Did you make sure it was from an affiliated store?

      • -2

        What do you mean by affiliated store?
        Cashrewards has 5% Cashback on whole aliexpress

        • +1

          Only affiliated now. Changed about a week ago.

        • Cashrewards has 5% Cashback on whole aliexpress

          Yeah read the third bottom line in the OP (there's an item checker). I got done by one of my two items unfortunately. So I cancelled my whole order.

        • +1

          Nope, not anymore:

          Affiliate products only (see terms). Cashback capped at $50.
          Special Terms
          Important: Effective 20/12/20, cashback will only be eligible on purchase of affiliate products. Check product eligibility on this link by entering the product ID or URL. Ensure you click 'Shop Now' prior to purchase. Claims will not be accepted for purchase of non-affiliate products.

  • Thanks guys. I didn't know Cashback for aliexpress is now for Affiliate products only.

    I checked the link and got the message that product is included. So, I will file manual claim. Thanks guys

    • It was or at least when I purchased on Singles Day. Because I found the cause soon after tracking, one item in the trxn with no cashback. The terms was just not pointed out.

  • +1

    Got paid out on this when I checked my account just now :)

  • I didn’t get the bonus :(
    Same for the earlier promo of Dec 20 (due 13/2 tho)

    • Did you maybe buy from Amazon with a 0% cashback rate category? Did you activate the offer? Did you contact TA?

      • Did activate & bought from first choice liquor (tracked). Emailed through the claim system as couldn’t find any other way. Wait & see :)

        • Shoot me your CR email address. If you made a tracked purchase on the day and have not received the bonus, only explanation is you didn't activate the offer (I can provide evidence). Thanks!

  • I didn't the the bonus as well, but my order has been tracked.

    Contact them and they are saying that I haven't activated the offer, which I'm pretty sure I did (browser history also tells me that I open the offer page before placing an order).

    It doesn't seem I can do much more now since I didn't take a screenshot of the activated offer at the time.
