  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Fraudulent activity will result in rewards being forfeited and accounts closed.

Ensure you disable 3rd party plugins and VPNs, close any additional browser tabs, and don't click away to other sites looking for codes etc after clicking from Cashrewards as tracking will be lost (try our mobile app). Common questions: (1) can I purchase from an Amazon category showing 0% cashback - NO, (2) can I use eBay codes - NO, (3) can I use Amazon or eBay gift cards for purchase - YES. Don't forget to refer-a-friend for $20 each - tip: add your code to OzB’s randomiser. Use our Help Centre & Contact form here for any questions or issues.

    This "any store" promotion may not work on ebay, amazon and ali. Where do we need to buy that $5 item exactly and on what terms to qualify?

  • Do smartwatches (Mi band 5 and Amazfit band 5) fall under electronics, watches or 'Mobile Phones & Wearable Tech' ?

    • Do smartwatches (Mi band 5 and Amazfit band 5) fall under electronics


      • Yes sorry, my bad.

    First Choice Liquor Up to 40.00% cash back (only for Tanqueray No. Ten Gin 1L and Mortlach's 14 year old Single Malt Whisky)

    Tanqueray No. Ten Gin 1L $110 (First Choice Liquor), $64.85 (danmurphys), so basically if you buy from both this shop you will pay around $64 after cashback, then why somebody should pay $110 for this Gin in First Choice and wait few months to get 40% back while can buy it less right now from Danmurphy??

    TA can you explain this? Why so much over priced?

    • +2

      Hi, I'm really not sure - I work for Cashrewards, not FCL or Dan's. Unless I'm mistaken however, Dan's doesn't carry the 1L (only the 750mL) . See here.

      • Yes you are right!

      • I have purchased 2x Tanqueray No. Ten Gin 1L from FCL =D

    Sorry - can you confirm- can I get this bonus if I purchase from Amazon as a "first time buyer" I get a special offer of 2% cashback. Not using / purchasing gift cards. I know after the first time, there is 0% cashback - so not sure if this purchase would qualify.

  • +1

    What happens if I bought something, cancelled the order and then placed another order. Will the $5 bonus be allocated to the cancelled order?

  • Do items that are temporarily out of stock on Amazon qualify for this?

    • Amazon doesn't charge you until they have dispatched the item, placing your order on an out of stock item doesn't count as buying it (you haven't paid anything)

      • Pre-orders do count though as per CR’s T&Cs and you don’t get charged on those until the product is available.

  • @tightarse i can't activate. It keeps saying sign in and redirects me to the home page when i am already signed in

      Please see here. Simply log out of CR then back in. Issue will be resolved. Ensure you check if you've activated prior to buying. Thanks.

  • Cool. Bought more gift cards.

  • How do we know an item purchased in Amazon belongs to which category? For instance, Gillette razor??? Because some category in Amazon has 0% cash back.

    • You'll prolly have to check on desktop I think otherwise yeah it's difficult to work it out on the Amazon app.

      And if you are wondering yes Lawn & Garden has 4% cashback.

  • When I click on 'Shop Now' on the Choice Giftcards page, it seems to redirect me to the CR homepage?

      Yes, but excludes any Apple & Catch Connect products. Please don't use gift cards for purchase with Catch. Cheers.

  • hmm CR Firefox extension doesn't seem to work anymore on Firefox 86 / Uniqlo. Related to the new cookies thing?


    • Doesn't seem to detect which site I'm on
    • Doesn't show my current "tracking or not" status
    • Doesn't show current tracking rate (8% instead of 2%)

    Update: weird, it works during checkout but not during shopping.

  • Thanks TA, ordered bottle of wine from BWS 20%cashback :)

      just to add to above my comments, i have noticed that CR tracked my BWS order and promotion $5 also visible in my account.

  • Got Lego Star Wars III. $1 approx. after cashback.

  • I like TA's efforts but don't feel comfortable about CR, It has been more than 2 days, the amaysim $60 has still not been tracked…….

    • +1

      I commented in the post at the time:


      Hi guys, please note we’ve exceeded the 1000 redemption limit as of 4PM, however amaysim has kindly extended the offer until 6PM AEDT today, at which time the plan reverts to $35 cashback.

      Further, even though we have successfully tracked the allocated quota to members, from the comments it appears some have not been successful. If this is the case, please simply submit a claim at 7 days via your click history, and amaysim will make good on these provided no fraudulent activity is detected and all terms have been met & followed per the description in this post. Many thanks for your support :)

        Thanks TA, I completed the payment before 11am through the app, hopefully the claim process is smooth.

        • PM me if it's not.

    Hey TA, not sure if you'll see this but i just used the new look site for the first time.

    Viewing the rewards, it is notably more difficult to distinguish quickly between approved and pending rewards.

    • Really? You must be talking about website, as app is very clear, showing green, red or grey for approved, declined or pending.

      • +4

        Yes I am, never used the app but the site used to have coloured icons. Now it has text which is all the same colour, light grey on white.

        • I agree that the website change does indeed make it difficult to distinguish between approved and pending. Previously you could see what was pending and approved at a glance. It would be great if TA reads this and is able to change it back to how it was. Regardless, I love CR so no dramas if it can't be changed.I am just grateful to have the opportunity to receive cashback.

    Thanks TA - that's another easy Chemist Warehouse purchase for me. Got me some shampoo…

  • Been Waiting for a good deal like this

  • should the tracking always be instant or can it be delayed sometimes?

    A couple of hours ago I activated the $5 bonus and went through to Liquorland and made a purchase, the $5 is pending in my account, but still no sign of the Liqourland purchase. Then I put another order through Boozebud and that tracked straight away.

    Am I going to be out of luck or do I just need to be patient? Browser configuration was the same in both cases.

    • +1

      Different stores have different tracking times

      • Cheers, we'll wait and see then 🤞

    • I cant seem to get Liquorland or first choice liquor tracked on either CR or SB.

      • Never missed for me as far as I know, using the sb and cr app's for those shops you mentioned.

  • Made a bws purchase , see if it tracks

  • Its weird. Cant load ebay site through the cash reward.

      Are you on desktop or mobile? If desktop, see here. If mobile, see here.

  • Is ebay no longer on the Cashrewards app? its on the website but I cant find it in the app?

    • Get choice gift card and swap it with eBay gift card is better with 5% cash back.

    • +3

      From the eBay merchant page terms:


      Until further notice, cashback on eBay AU is available only when shopping via a desktop browser. Cashback is ineligible if shopping via the mobile site, the Cashrewards app, or the eBay app.

      • +1

        There should be an added clause that cashback is ineligible if the moon is at a waning gibbous phase or if you've sneezed earlier that day.

        Hi TA, I've made purchase on eBay via desktop this afternoon. Till now, there is no tracking email. How long does it take for eBay purchase to track?

        • +1

          eBay tracking is not instant. Can take 24-48 hours.

    I have a problem with Aliexpress. Every time you click on an item, it opens in a new tab instead of the existing tab. Will this kill tracking? Is there a way to force a link to open in the existing tab?

    UPDATE: I ended up using the app. Which I'm not happy about. They don't give you the option to pay via paypal via the app so I don't have good protection or free returns.

    • Good luck with tracking, I can never get it to track correctly via the app (it doesn't track the first transaction each time I try). The site seems to track fine with cashrewards though.

      • but when you click a link it opens in a new tab. Doesn't that break the tracking?

        (it doesn't track the first transaction each time I try)

        does this only happen with Aliexpress or everywhere?

        • I've ordered heaps of times from AE, always got tracking with CR/SB with new tabs opening. Sometimes I do paste the item number in the search bar and add it in the cart that way to avoid a new tab too. I never, ever use apps to do my purchases. It's unreliable. Always desktop, never any problems with tracking.

          • @CVonC: Damn. :(

            They should fix this.

            I didn't know that if you manually enter a URL it would still track. I thought it would be treated like opening a new tab or clicking away (via link) to another site.

            • @lostn: I meant enter the item number in the AE search field to prevent opening a new tab.

              But yeah it still tracks for me even if a new tab opens.

    • +4

      Next time do what I did…

      1. Do all your browsing first to find everything you want to buy (and check each one qualifies: https://portals.aliexpress.com/linkchecker.htm).
      2. Copy all the item number/s from their URL/s into a text file, separating each number using an obvious keystroke like an "&".
      3. Once you have the numbers of everything you want to buy select and copy the entire line of text (so you now have all the item numbers in memory).
      4. Then go the OZB deal page and click the Cashrewards activation link. After it says it's been activated click the button to go shop at Aliexpress.
      5. Paste the entire line of text into the search box.
      6. Reselect and cut everything after the first number, leaving only the first item number in the search box.
      7. Then hit enter. Your first item appears. Add it to the cart. Then click to continue shopping.

      Repeat steps 5-7 until all items are added to the cart then pay.

      • Seems like a complex workaround that I don't assume the average user will know how to do. I wish they could talk to each other and improve the system from the back end.

        I did not know that you can search by item number. I might just put all the item numbers on a separate line and copy them one by one into the search box.

        Does your method prevent the opening of a new tab?

        • Yeah that's basically what I put above… but note how their instructions say not to click away from the Aliexpress site once the deal is activated. That's why I listed the steps in that order, and why I copied all the numbers into one line and remove one item number from the clipboard each time by cutting/pasting/deleting/cutting again.

          Yes it does stop new tabs opening because you're not clicking on items in a search result, you're going directly to the item using the item number.

  • Ordered from BWS and received a text message 3 hours later telling me that my order has been randomly selected for security check and as a result may be delayed. Does anyone have the same experience before?

    Rang store and was told that they couldn't find my order. Guy said he would ring up customer service to find out why and got back to me within 5 mins. Of course he never called back. Rang the store again and found out he went home already. The second guy said he would let me pick up the order if I could pop in tonight. But I didn't go.

    • I've had this multiple times, and every time I've ignored it and just gone in and picked up the order. Only once did I actually get any notification that it was ready for pickup (I think it was an email) yet every time it was ready.

      • Thanks. Wish I saw your reply early because I just re ordered. Well I guess I can just can one order.

  • Dan Murphys store on a Friday with bonus cashback is dangerous. Hehe

        Was very strange & off putting adding that "DAN's 15% Promo tomorrow" in with this "$5 Bonus Cashback on $5 Spend at Any Online Store*
        I was licking my lips until I saw your comment here noting. the $5 bonus finishes tonight. Who oh why add the comment here and not just make a new Entry for Dan's tomorrow as it has nothing to do with this $5 Promo? I know it might be a reminder BUT………

  • Thank you for the bonus $5!

  • Hi TA, can this $5 bonus stack with Amaysim $30 (now $10) Mobile Plan with 35GB with $7.00 normal CB?

      No. It’s in the very first term in the OP:

      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.

      • I'd hate to cancel and order another one :(
