This is what we've all been waiting for
Have you seen the Cashrewards Black Friday cashback increase banner everywhere? Seen the Apple logo on it and wondered when it will happen and how much the cashback will be?
Well, I reached out to TA (tightarse) last week to enquire about the upcoming upsized cashback for Apple since everyone was asking for it in relation to Apple's annual Black Friday sales (Apple Shopping Event) and he was more than happy to provide some details:
Upsized cashback rate: 10% (excl. GST)
During the 24 hour promo, cashback for Apple is capped at $100 in total per member account, irrespective of the number of transactions made. Valid 12am to 11:59pm AEDT 25/11/2022.
Best to use the Cashrewards app for the highest chance of tracking!
TA has confirmed that all cashback eligible products sold as part of the Apple Shopping Event will be applicable/eligible for the 10% upsized cashback offer, despite having a promotional bonus gift card bundled with the item.
However, cashback will still be ineligible if you purchase a standalone gift card (as always), so don't buy a standalone gift card.
Stack this upsized cashback deal with the Apple AirPods Pro 2nd Gen $399 + Bonus $80 Apple Gift Card deal for an even bigger saving on the AirPods Pro 2nd Gen, especially if using discounted gift cards to pay (yes - you can use gift cards to pay) - this is probably the best deal ever for the 2nd Gen
Ineligible for cashback (updated 21/11/22): Gen 10 iPad, iPad Pro 11" & 12.9", Apple TV 4K, iPhone 14, iPhone 14 Plus, iPhone 14 Pro, iPhone 14 Pro Max, Apple Watch Ultra, Apple Watch Series 8, Studio Display, Pro Display XDR, Purchase of Gift Cards, Gift Wrap, Shipping, Apple Developer Programs, Purchases via trade-ins, AppleCare purchased individually (or after associated product ships).
Important: Cashback tracks to member accounts between 2-7 days after you receive confirmation from Apple that the product has been shipped.
Apple sells and ships products to end user customers only; you may not purchase for resale. Eligible only to a customer for up to five (5) units per eligible product, except iPhone, in which case only two (2) units within a thirty-day (30-day) period are eligible.
Cashback is eligible on purchases paid with gift cards, and eligible on the purchase of Apple refurbished products.
Cashback is ineligible on EPP purchases (Employee Purchase Program).
Apple Education Store eligibility: full time or part time students aged 18 or over with current student union or student ID card and studying at an accredited Australian university or Apple approved institution; lecturers or staff at an accredited Australian university; teachers or lecturers working at an Apple approved & registered education establishment within Australia. Additionally, products purchased from Apple's Education Store must be for personal, education, or research use.
