$5 Bonus Cashback on $30 Spend in One Transaction @ Cashrewards (Activation, Excludes Gift Cards, All Amazon Categories Valid)


Hi everyone. This bonus is in celebration of Cashrewards reaching 2 Million Members. I would personally like to thank you all for your support over the years - we obviously could not have got to where we are without you. Promo runs for two days, ending 11:59pm AEST Friday (14/07/23). Please stay safe, and enjoy :) 🎉🥳

If you intend buying something from Amazon, please ensure you check your item's category by using my tips to help determine whether or not it's eligible for cashback. Anything at 0% cashback will void the bonus.

Edit 11am AEST: all Amazon categories are now eligible apart from the regular exclusions. See my comment in the post :)

Read the terms below carefully - it will save a lot of questions. Ensure you activate the bonus prior to shopping. Once activated, shop as normal via the 'Shop Now' (Store) or 'Activate Now' (Notifier) buttons on Cashrewards. Note specific store exclusions such as Amazon 0% categories, AliExpress non-affliliate products etc, and read all terms for the store your wish to purchase from.

Full list of Cashrewards stores & categories here.

$5 Bonus Promo Terms:

  1. 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 active online store* on Cashrewards, excluding any purchase from the Cashrewards Gift Card Page.
  2. After activation, transaction must be made between 10:00am 13/07/23 and 11:59pm AEST 14/07/23.
  3. Bonus is eligible on qualifying purchases of AUD $30 or more in a single transaction (inclusive of GST, after any discounts, and before shipping). Sales may report to Cashrewards ex-GST so the amount shown in your account may be less than $30 - you will still be eligible for the bonus.
  4. Bonus will be added automatically to your Cashrewards account as ‘pending’ upon activation of this offer. Under some conditions, there may be a delay of up to 60 minutes for the bonus to show in your account (a tracking email is not sent for the bonus). Bonus will be approved within 7 days of any associated qualifying purchase being approved, as per the terms of the store.
  5. Bonus is over and above the advertised store cashback rates which still apply to the transaction.
  6. Transaction is valid if made online via desktop browser, Cashrewards mobile app, Cashrewards Notifier, or mobile browser.
  7. Bonus is ineligible on any purchase from the Cashrewards Gift Card Page, and ineligible on any in-store purchases.
  8. Selected stores may report orders with multiple items as individual transactions into your Cashrewards account - these are still eligible.
  9. Bonus is limited to one per qualifying Cashrewards account. Additional transactions do not qualify for additional bonuses.
  10. 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. *Check individual store cashback terms and exclusions prior to purchase (see Amazon, eBay, AliExpress, BIG W etc).
  11. If buying from Amazon, you must purchase from a category with a cashback value higher than 0%. See the cashback table of rates on the Amazon merchant page on Cashrewards for more information.
  12. Fraudulent activity will result in rewards being forfeited and accounts closed.

Do not activate the bonus unless you intend using it - it will decline after 14 days unless a qualifying purchase is made. For tracking success, disable 3rd party plugins (AdBlock, uBlock, Pi-hole, Honey, etc), VPNs, avoid browsers such as Brave, close additional browser tabs, and don't click away to other sites looking for codes etc after clicking from Cashrewards as tracking will be lost. Cashrewards must be your last click before purchase. Use our iOS/Android mobile app for improved tracking results. Use our Help Centre & Contact form here for any questions or issues.

    Great news guys!!! As at 11am AEST, Amazon has now allowed us to offer cashback on all their categories (even if only 1%), meaning the bonus is eligible on almost everything (except GCs etc). Merchant page has been updated with the rates. Enjoy :)

      Thanks TA! hopefully some good deals today as "PRIME" day was extremely dissappointing

    • +1

      TA the real MVP around here.

    • Hi TA, I am using public PC wth no control over its settings. What is the best way to ensure tracking on PC? TY

      • Please don't - who knows what settings they have on their routers/firewalls etc. Install the app on your mobile and purchase that way.

        • that is what I always did. But today iherb can't confirm my NEW mastercard cc saying "looks like another app is blocking access to Google Pay. Turn off any apps that might be drawing over and try again." I have only cashrewards open ! at the end of my wits :(

          • +1

            @amorn: What about a mobile browser? If using Safari on iOS, turn off "Prevent Cross-site Tracking" in the settings. All the best :)

  • Thanks TA!

    Trying to get those of us that restrained ourselves during prime day eh?

    lets gooooo.

    Bummer about all the 0% Amazon categories though.

    • +6

      Not sure why they can't make all of them 1% for this promotion

      • Would be nice.

      • Didn’t one of the cashback providers make all categories something silly low like 0.1% (not 1% but .1%) so everything would be eligible for a similar deal some time ago?

        Not complaining about the deal just curious if that occurred or I read the post wrong.

        • +7

          Not sure why they can't make all of them 1% for this promotion

          Done :)

          • @tightarse: Hi TA, thanks for the nice bonus. Is there a deadline/end-time for the Amazon 1% boost?

            • +4

              @Charlie Dont Surf: Hey Charlie! Amazon all categories will remain as is until promo end time (11:59pm AEST Friday 14/07/23). Enjoy :)

                @tightarse: Convince them to make it permanent. CR would knock the competition out of the park!

    Thanks TA - $5 for $30 is so much better than $3 for $50 (that had a misleading title of $30 in their app).

    I bought a few things from Amazon last night, and none of them tracked.

    Is this the same for you guys

    • +4

      It takes a few days as per TA comment in other post. Mine took 2 days until I received the tracking email. Amazon do it in a batch once daily

      I got a tracking email from Cashrewards this morning for my Amazon purchase last night.

    • Eneloops?

  • My Amazon's cashback wasn't tracked since 11th both the $5 and the normal cashback..

  • -1


  • Quick question…

    If I make a $50 purchase from target and they refund me $5 (out of stock item) - $45 now total, does this make me invalid from cashback?

    • +4

      If they refund you anything, it typically invalidates the entire cashback

      • not cool….

        @tightarse - will my next purchase qualify… or is this deal dead to me now?

  • +2

    Thanks TA! Chemist warehouse time!

  • +1

    Ah, guess it was my turn to have bought something literally half an hour before this went up this morning 😅
    Thanks for the 48hr period, maybe I'll find something else.

    Grats on the 2 mil!

  • -1

    So I can buy an Amazon Gift Card from Amazon and that qualifies?

    • +2

      Unfortunately not. You still need to abide by the other Amazon terms:

      Cashback is ineligible on the following:

      1. Purchase of products in any cashback category with a cashback rate of 0%. Check the cashback categories table prior to purchase.
      2. Purchase of gift cards, vouchers, Kindle Unlimited, Audible, mobile apps, Amazon Prime subscriptions & renewals.
      3. Second and subsequent Subscribe & Save orders (only first Subscribe & Save orders in eligible categories are eligible).
      4. Purchases paid with any Amazon credit as partial or full payment.
      5. Use of any promotional codes entered manually in Amazon's 'Promotion Code' field.
      6. Items added to cart prior to clicking from Cashrewards.
      7. Items purchased from your Amazon wish list or 'saved for later' list.
      8. Items that are cancelled, returned, exchanged or refunded.
      9. GST, other taxes and delivery fees.
      10. Fraudulent transactions.
      • 7 - Items purchased from your Amazon wish list or 'saved for later' list.

        Does it mean I'd have to remove the item from the wish list before purchase? Can I navigate into the page from the wish list, remove the item from the wish list and purchase?

        • What a weird exception. I wonder why it's in there.

        • +3

          My understanding is that you just can't use the 'add to cart' button when you're on your wishlist page. You need to go to the actual product page and then add it to card from there. I guess there's a bunch of extra data attached to that method that CR needs to track the purchase.

          I don't believe you need to remove it from your wishlist. That's my experience at least…

        • +2

          You don't need to remove it from your wish list or Save for Later, but you do need to search for it in Amazon, and then add it from there instead of from your wish list. TA confirmed that.

  • Thanks TA 🥰

  • Hi OP. On the 11th it was the $5 cashback for $50 spent. It's still on pending. On left side it's stated "Amount - AUD $0.00 " And on right side it's stated REWARDS - $5.00 " .
    What does it mean?

    • This is correct (ignore the $0.00). The $5 remains pending until the qualifying Amazon purchase is approved, at which time the $5 will also move to approved.

  • Thanks, TA.

  • +1

    Well, for once my procrastination paid off. I was going to order from Chemist Warehouse last night but decided to sit back and enjoy a glass of wine instead. Thanks TA!

  • Thanks TA

  • Huge Congratulations TA, 2 Mil Members - what an awesome milestone.

  • WELL DONE MATE!!! @tightarse
    I know it was a tough road with some very long nights in the early days, but you absolutely deserve it.

  • eBay have cashback now.

  • why Do not activate the bonus unless you intend using it?

    • You take a spot from someone else?

      • +2

        It's more to do with complaints if declined where members have not made a qualifying purchase or not followed the terms of the promo. Just want to avoid the enquiries as much as we can :)

        • +1

          The issue is that you can't tell what the bonus was for when it gets declined if you didn't use it because all it says is "Cashrewards Promotional Bonus". I've suggested a while ago, to at least include which promotion it is in the title or description to lessen these inquiries.

  • Amazon giftcard to use ok?

    • +1

      Using gift cards for purchase is totally fine (as opposed to buying gift cards which is not). Please familiarise yourself with the terms on our Amazon Merchant page, especially the need to empty your cart prior to clicking from Cashrewards. Thank you.

      • Hey rep, is a combination of gift card + visa debit fine as well?

  • +1

    Can it be stacked with the current eBay codes? Assuming not since they're not shown on the Cashrewards eBay page

    • +2

      Unfortunately not. eBay terms:

      Cashback is ineligible on the following:

      1. Purchases using any coupon codes not listed on Cashrewards.
      2. Purchases via auction or best offer prices.
      3. Purchases made via the eBay app.
      4. Purchase of Non-Profit, Charity, Real Estate, eBay Plus Subscriptions.
      5. Purchases paid with eBay credits (in part or full).
      6. Items that are cancelled, returned, exchanged or refunded.
      7. GST, other taxes and delivery fees.
      8. Fraudulent transactions.
  • @tightarse does it stack with the monthly $5 eBay Plus code? PLUS5xxxxx?

    • +1

      He said no, unfortunately..

  • Can I use it to buy item (beer) on ebay and use the $5 ebay plus monthly code? PLUS5Cxxxxxx ?

    • +2

      No. Please see my comment just above ^^

  • I appreciate this so much. Thanks TA.

  • Literally had a transaction that would have qualified 15mins before this was posted through cashrewards. Cancelled and reordered after activating the link so heres hoping!

  • Dont do this to me :(( after 15% compared to 20%. Then spent $30 on 20% day. And todaay hahha this impulsive buys need to stop, inflation is the way

    But anyhow congrats CR TA

    • +1

      Hi. As per the terms on our Amazon merchant page:


      Cashback is eligible for:

      1. Purchase of products in any cashback category with a cashback rate higher than 0% (eligible category). Check the cashback categories table prior to purchase.
      2. Purchase of products in an eligible category paid with gift cards.
      3. The first (new) Subscribe & Save order of a product in an eligible category. Subsequent orders are ineligible for cashback.
      4. Pre-orders of products in an eligible category, but only if the item is scheduled to be shipped within 60 days of purchase.
      • Thanks for the validation. Didn't know if normal terms applied to these bonuses.. but excellent!
