As couponing and online shopping are booming in India, here's a handy site I discovered that not only offers savings, but also gives you cash back on your purchases. Cashkaro.com is a website that enables its members to get a percentage of their money spent on online shopping back into their accounts. They provide shoppers with cashback and coupons for India's top shopping websites like Myntra, Snapdeal, Flipkart, Amazon, Jabong and 500 more. So for one to earn Cashback, all you have to do is shop at a retailer like say, Myntra through Cashkaro and you can earn up to Rs 240 Cashback on an order worth Rs 400, that’s over 50% savings right there! Similarly, they have over 500 such fashion brands which includes Koovs, Limeroad, FashionAndYou, Fashionara and many more.
Unlike other coupon sites, not only do you get the instant coupon savings but you also get Cashback and this makes us them most rewarding website in India. Their parent company is based in the UK, which gives shoppers access to many international sites like Expedia, Hotels.com, Hilton and many more.
That's not all, besides fashion, Cashkaro.com also covers a large number of shopping options for beauty, mobile phones, electronics, books, home stuff and even offers travel and restaurant deals. The best part is that this website is absolutely free to use so there are no admin fees, joining costs or other hidden costs. Though their restaurant deal section only covers Mumbai and Delhi at present, they are actively tying up with the best restaurants across other Indian cities to help you make savings on your next meal too.
How it works is quite simple. After you shop, within 72 hours they add your Cashback to your Cashkaro account and send you an email. This remains in 'Pending' status till the retailer pays them. As soon as they get the commission from retailers your Cashback status is changed to 'Confirmed'. This usually takes between 4-12 weeks. Once you have Rs 250 or more as 'Confirmed' Cashback , you can
request payment and they transfer the money to your bank account for free. So if you're shopping online, all you need to do is create a Cashkaro account and access your website of choice through it to get savings and cash back with your shopping. Saving has really never been this easy!
Another cool feature about them is their referral program. For every friend, family member or colleague you refer to Cashkaro.com, you get a lifetime referral bonus of 10%. So 10% of everything your referrals earn comes to you. So if your friend earns Rs 5000 a year in Cashback, you earn Rs 500. You can refer all your friends easily via Facebook, Twitter or email in seconds.
Superb concept, isn't it? So if you shop online or have friends and family who do, you must sign up with Cashkaro or refer it to them and get great savings along with cash back! A perfect win-win situation!
