What is TopCashback
TopCashback is a free membership virtual shopping mall that pays members cash back when they shop online through their website. This post lists everything you need to know about TopCashback to save money plus get a freebie.
How much cash back does TopCashback pay?
A percentage of the total amount of what you buy online is returned to you as a cash back rebate.
Where does TopCashback cash rebates come from?
The merchant! Not consumers.
How TopCashback Works
Think of the closest shopping mall near you. When you go to the mall, you head over to the store where you want to shop. You find what you are looking for, then head to checkout, pay and you’re done.
In this case, the ‘shopping mall is a building’. In the case of TopCashback, its a website. Instead of going to the mall near you, type TopCashback.com on your device. Tablet, cellphone or PC. You then search for the store you want to shop at by typing the name in the search bar. Next you’ll see current offers in that store along with the amount of cash back you’ll receive when shopping at that store.
In the example below, I would get 3% cash back for shopping at Nike
To earn cash back simply click on the “Get Cashback Now” button. This will take you to the merchant website. In the example above the Nike website will open up in a new page.
Next, shop for whatever you need. Add the products to your cart and pay. That’s it!
Your purchase is tracked by TopCashback, and after the completed transaction is verified by the merchant, TopCashback will deposit a percentage of what you spent into your account. (in the example above I earn 3% of the total I spent at Nike.com).
TopCashback is free to join, its free to use, and easy to redeem for cash
TopCashback doesn’t charge members for shopping or for withdrawing cash. This is because merchants pay TopCashback, not shoppers. Why do merchants do that? To attract shoppers to their online store.

Often, people sign up, but don’t complete the transaction. This doesn’t mean you missed out on getting your free bonus. If you already have a TopCasback account, but never submitted any rebate or received cash back from TopCashback, you are still eligible to claim your freebie.

Don’t see the “get offer” button? If you have made online purchases through TopCashback already, unfortunately you are not eligible.

TopCashback also has freebies for existing members as well. BUT very rarely. These offers go like hot cakes, so don’t put it on your ‘later list’ or you’ll miss out!

How to Get TopCashback Referral Bonus
TopCashback has a referral bonus program in which you earn money for referring anyone. This can be your husband or wife, adult children, relatives, neighbors, etc. They could be living in the same household too.
How does it work? Join TopCashback first. (use my link to get started. I earn, you earn) Once you are a TopCashback member you’ll get a unique tell a friend link. Share your Tell a Friend link everywhere you can think of. When someone signs up with your referral, you’ll get $10 added to your account and they get cash too. Save money, but also make money.
Typically, bonus offers are $10 cash back to spend at a store, or merchandise free after cash back. Occasionally however, it increases. I’ve seen $30 sign up bonus offered.
When I signed up, I got a free DVD/BluRay/Digital movie worth $24.99 for free!
How to get your payout
In order to request a payout from TopCashback you need a minimum $10 in your account. To see how much you have, go to Account and you’ll see the menu bar with “Payout”.
There are 2 ways to request a payout
1 – Direct Payment – transfer directly to PayPal or ACH, which stands for Automatic Clearing House. Basically, ACH is the process to transfer money into a bank account. Transfer directly to your bank, either savings or checking – (including a high yield savings account, which will turn your cash back earnings into more money) . This is only available to US bank accounts.
2 – Gift card and Prepaid Cards – TopCashback has an additional cashback bonus payout for cashing out with gift cards. Choose from a Visa Prepaid card, Amazon.com gift card or American Express Rewards card etc. The image above shows an example of extra bonus when redeeming with a gift card
You can withdraw your cash straight to your checking or PayPal account. You also have the option to redeem your cash for gift cards. Redeeming for gift cards have the added incentive of getting an additional cash bonus. For example, instead of redeeming $10 cash, you may get a gift card with a bonus for $10.40 at Target.
I also uploaded step by step instruction on how to get the bonus offer as an existing member is also described in the video How to Get TopCashback New or Existing Member Freebie Offer if you prefer how-to videos. I hope this helps you save extra cash when shopping online.
