Samsung Galaxy Buds for ~$20 with a great stack

It’s late, so I’m going to keep this very short: Doctor of Credit posted a nice deal on Samsung Galaxy buds. They are available at many stores for $99.99 right now, but I think you can stack it for a terrific deal by doing the following:

  1. Sync the Microsoft Store offer on your Chase business card (targeted, but pretty widely available on Chase business cards; good for 25% back)
  2. Start at TopCashBack. If you’re new to TopCashBack, that’s where it gets really good. New TopCashBack members who sign up through our link found in this post can earn a bonus $35 back once they’ve earned $10 in cash back, but you have to sign up by today (12/1/19) at 23:59 PST. See our post for more.
  3. TopCashBack is currently (at the time of writing) offering $20 cash back for order online, pick up in-store purchases.
    Update: As noted below, this has not tracked properly for those who purchased the deal. We’re waiting on an update from TopCashBack.
  4. Click through TopCashBack, go to the Microsoft Store site, find the Galaxy Buds, add to cart.
  5. In your shopping cart, check the box to pick up in-store and then select a Microsoft Store near you.
  6. Check out using a card sycned with the Chase Offer

In the end, this what the math looks like:

$99.99 (current price of the Samsung Galaxy Buds)
– 25.00 (cash back from Chase Offer)
$74.99
– 20.00 (TopCashBack cash from in-store pick up)
$54.99
– 35.00 (if you’re a new TopCashBack member)
$19.99 net cost (plus sales tax on the full $99.99 price, which will vary) + 500 Ultimate Rewards points if using Ink Cash / Ink Plus (according to the DoC Payments Workshop)

This seems like an awesome stack.

Here are the things I don’t know:

  1. Will this trigger the $20 in-store pick up cash back? It seems generous, but I can’t see why not. I suspect it will. I placed an order to find out.
    Update: This purchase is tracking at $1 back even for those who have already picked the item up. Several readers have submitted support tickets to Top Cash Back. At this point, it is unresolved. There were no exclusions listed, so I’ll be disappointed if this doesn’t pay out — at the very least, it’s frustrating that it didn’t track properly.
  2. Will that $20 earned trigger the TopCashBack new member bonus? Again, I assume it would since the requirement is to earn $10 in cash back. Unfortunately, most of my family has joined, so I won’t be testing this part.

I assume this is going to work just as I laid it out, which might make this one of the hottest deals of Black Friday / Cyber Monday weekend if you can take advantage. Even if you’re not a new member, $55 for the buds is an excellent deal. I definitely didn’t plan to buy these and totally just did.

[…] just $67. There’s some mention there on TCB of getting $20 if you choose in-store pickup (ht FM), so that might work for someone in the […]

Is the Purchase on line, store pick up offer still on? Is yes, does anyone know how to find this offer on the Top Cash Back website? Thanks in advance!

Never mind, I just found it 🙂 In case anyone else is looking, the offer is under a list of Microsoft offers.

I’m trying to find anywhere that the offers say specifically Samsung. Am I missing it or would the same deal work for the $100 Bose Soundsports?

I really don’t like that you’re using the sign-up bonus as part of the stack. That’s Krazy Coupon Lady-level clickbait. Every week, she has a few posts touting free items or moneymakers – but only when counting the referral bonus for this or that portal. And that site, just as FM, is heavy on the free or deeply discounted stuff (though it’s usually toothpaste, not flights/hotels/gear)… so it’s dishonest to present it as another free/deeply discounted item.

If the idea is to unlock the $35 CB quickly, just make a post outlining the best ways to do so, with offers that meet the following requirements:
– TCB beats the rest without counting the SUB;
– the item earns at least $10 on TCB;
– potential “filters”: the deal stacks with card-linked offers and/or deeply discounted GC(s) and/or big discounts (e.g. Black Friday, Cyber Monday) and/or store credit and/or rebates.
Make it clear from the start what the deal is (a one-time SUB for new members), and even so, keep the calculation with the SUB as secondary.

This blog is heavy on math and logic. Please keep it that way.

Doesn’t seem to work. Tracks at 1% CB instead of $20.

In for one on 2 Dec. The link for the $35 back for new users still worked. Should it have already expired?.

I have to say I’m a bit annoyed with TCB, not only the purchase not tracking correctly but I’ve gotten multiple spam emails from them every day since I joined. I unsubscribed a few days back and I get that it can take a while to remove my name so I’ll have to wait and see if I really stop getting spam.
