Retailmenot is offering some special cash back deals through its app when you link a credit card. These card-linked deals can stack with your credit card bonuses and any in-store coupons/deals/discounts, which could make decent deals even better. Note that the terms of most of these exclude gift cards, though reports indicate it is not always enforced and some of the offers are repeatable.

The Deal

  • Get in-store cash back by linking a credit card with the Retailmenot app. Here are some current in-app offers:
    • Staples: Get $7 back on $140+
    • GNC: Get $15 back on $50+
    • CVS: Get $4 back on $80+
    • Walgreen’s: Get $5 back on $50+
    • Macy’s: Get $10 back on $150+
    • Home Depot: Get $15 back on $300+
    • more in the app

Key Terms

  • While Retailmenot has both online and in-store cash back, the offers above are in-store only
  • Must link your card first and then pay with your linked card
  • Must meet minimum spend before taxes
  • Returns may disqualify you
  • You may be limited to 10 offers per month
  • See each offer in-app for more terms

Quick Thoughts

These offers can work out well if you’re able to use them in conjunction with gift card purchases or other deals. For example, if you could stack with this week’s fee-free $200 Visa Gift Cards at Staples, you would come out nicely ahead. You could also mitigate the fee at other places that sell gift cards. While the terms indicate that gift card purchases are excluded, real life experiences are mixed, so YMMV. I haven’t been using these offers, but I believe you can link the offer again after it has been used (according to the terms, I think you need to wait 1-7 days until it posts to your Retaimenot account to re-link it, but if someone has direct experience one way or another please let us know in the comments).

Once again, if you’re going to be the regular poster here and FM is mostly gone, then you need to do these deals yourself so you can speak to them in a useful way. Having you repost stuff from SD and other places is pointless.

Glenn, I don’t think it’s fair to criticize Nick for not trying these deals himself before posting them on the blog. He’s just trying to post the most up-to-date deals that he thinks FM readers will find valuable. I don’t have a problem with that. In fact, it’s much appreciated.

With respect to whether or not gift card purchases will be valid for cash back deals… I was going to buy no fee Visa gift cards with my Chase Ink Plus card at Staples anyway. However, with the information learned from this post, now I’m going to download the Retail Me Not app and maybe I’ll get $7 cash back. If I don’t, then no biggie. 🙂


@Dr. McFrugal,

Don’t completely disagree, but the whole I don’t have personal experience thing is coming up rather a lot lately. And with FM’s reduced posting frequency, the more detailed posts we’ve seen in the past, the posts that built this site, are becoming few and far between. I mean he drove to Lowe’s for the first time to use an Amex Offer? I know those are dead now but we’ve all been doing these for YEARS.

To contrast, read DoctorOfCredit on any given day. Many more deals. A lot more details. Comments and responses below that are often useful. Not something I’m seeing a lot of on FM these days.

Data point here. I successfully used the Staples offer and it was approved for cash back today. Thanks!
