[EXPIRED] Wow! 20% cash back on Walmart, Hotels.com, airbnb, Kroger, Delta and more at Raise.com

Update: TopCashBack has clarified the language on this deal: This offer is valid on all second-hand gift cards.  Note from Greg: I’m re-publishing this to give it more attention.  20% back for a wide variety of gift cards is an awesome deal, but it is only available until 11:59 PT tonight.

TopCashBack is offering the highest cash back rate I think I’ve ever seen at Raise.com: 20% cash back.

This is huge — it is valid on orders up to $1K — though note the lifetime limit at Raise. Once you’ve placed $5K in purchases lifetime at Raise, you’re not eligible to earn any more cash back.

What counts?  What doesn’t?

All gift cards listed as “Discount Gift Cards” count towards the 20% TopCashBack rebate.  Gift cards listed as “Cash Back Gift Cards” do not count.  You can see the difference between the two types in the image here:

Raise Cash Back vs Discount Gift Cards

For more details about what counts and what doesn’t, see this post.

If you haven’t yet signed up for TopCashBack, you can find Greg’s referral link here.

Hi Baron,

If there is anything I can help you with at all, please do share more information so I can advise further though.

If you mean that you have two accounts with us though, it is against our terms and conditions.

Thanks,
Jack

I’d really love to know if it’s sitewide or not. Have a Royal Caribbean cruise next year and saving 20% would be amazing. Might have to just go for it and hope for the best.

@Andy in the same situation here as well, would like to knock off $200 off my payment to RC for the cruise in a few months. I just made the purchase, so will see if it earns 20% off. Also made it with CITI ATT CC, which might or might not earn x3 TYP…..

Hi Andy,

You should have no trouble with this, so long as the order is under $1,000 as this is a limit listed on our site for each transaction. However, you can make multiple orders and spend up to $5,000.

I hope this helps,
Jack

Jack,
Why is there a lifetime limit of cash back on up to 5k? This seems antithetical to keeping customers

Andy

Yeah, I don’t get the exclusion, “Listing gift cards excluded”

Dan

Right…isn’t that the entire site? What else do they sell?

Jod P

Exclusion would apply when you list a card to SELL.

Stephen Pepper

Yep, what Jod P says is correct – ‘Listing gift cards excluded’ refers to people selling their cards on Raise, not people buying them from there.

Gift card listings excluded doesn’t make any sense. That’s all they have, right?

Stephen Pepper
Member

They have a couple of types – second-hand cards (which is what you’ll earn 20% cashback on) and cashback cards which are first-hand cards but which you earn cashback on.

The gift card listings exclusion refers to people selling their cards on Raise – it means they won’t earn earn 20% cashback rather than the people buying them.

Pete
Guest

Wait, what in the world does “Gift Card Listings will receive no cashback” mean? Aren’t gift cards the ONLY thing Raise sells? Isn’t this like saying ‘90% off at Starbucks. Does not apply to coffee or other beverage/food purchases.’??! If anyone understands this please let me know – because if it really is 20% off an Amazon gift card I’m all in.

Stephen Pepper
Member

They now also sell first-hand gift cards as ‘Cashback’ cards (it was formerly called Raise Pay). Those won’t earn you cashback, but the second-hand cards will. The ‘Gift card listings will receive no cashback’ refers to people selling their cards on the site, rather than to the people that’ll buy them.

When is the last time they actually had Hyatt gift cards in stock?

Pretty slimy for them to spotlight that.

Nate

So I noticed that for some companies you can buy “direct” gift cards (not a listing with a % off). Are these the ones that are “on sale”?

Stephen Pepper
Member

The ‘Direct’ or ‘Cashback’ cards aren’t included – only the second-hand cards that are listed as actually having a discount.

Nate
Guest
Nate

Thanks Stephen. I re-read the terms and figure not every store they listed has “direct” giftcards so I went with the listing ones and got some % plus hopefully the 20%.

Gabe

I imagine gift card listings are for cards you list for sale, no?

Hi Gabe,

That’s right. If you try to sell a Gift Card, this won’t earn you cashback but buying one will 🙂

Thanks,
Jack

Nate
Guest

Yeah so this is what it says: Bulk Seller listings are not eligible for cashback.

What’s a bulk seller? How do you know who’s even selling the gift cards you buy?

Nate
Guest
Nate

I just bought some Hotels.com and AirBnb cards. I have stays and will use them anyway. I’m going with the assumption that they mean “you won’t get cashback for listing gift cards or selling them”.

Fingers crossed but I figure the longer I wait, the more likely the ones I want will be gone. Pretty sweet deal if it pans out.

Hi Nate,

That’s right! If you sell a Gift Card, that won’t earn you cashback. And the same goes for people who are selling a bulk of Gift Cards on Raise as well. This isn’t something you should need to worry about yourself 🙂

Thanks,
Jack

lol yah kinda hard to know who is selling the cards in the first place! i think they mean if you plan to buy in bulk and resell gift cards

It says that “Gift Card Listings will receive no cashback.” but gift cards is all that Raise sells. Does this mean that discounted cards (from other people) are excluded so face value cards (called “Cash Back Gift Cards” on Raise) will work?

Stephen Pepper
Member

It’s the other way around – discounted cards will earn cashback, ‘Cash Back’ gift cards won’t. The listings exclusion refers to sellers, not buyers.

Rob

When they say “includes Sears, Sears In-Store, Kmart, Kmart In-Store, Starbucks, Amazon, Nordstrom, Staples, Best Buy, Bloomingdale’s, Macys, Hyatt, iTunes” doesn’t that mean those are the only gift cards that will earn the cashback? If that’s not what it means, why in the world would they word it this way? It feels like they are trying to make the terms confusing so they have plenty of ways to talk their way out of paying.

Gabe

Hi Rob,

I can see how you may this this but I can assure you we’re not trying to confuse anyone! Usually (or before this offer) we had a lower rate for specific Gift Cards such as the ones in that included list. It was placed on this offer to make members aware those Gift Cards are also available for you. We do apologize for the confusion and we later adapted the offer to read clearly.

I hope this helps,
Jack

[…] Nick just covered the great deal on gift cards sold on Raise as you can earn 20% cashback when clicking through from TopCashback. […]

Hi All!

Jumping on here to address some confusion. The word “includes” was actually correct. Sears, Kmart, Best Buy, etc. are often excluded from promotions like this, but they are all eligible for this 20% cash back promotion, so we wanted to let everyone know that they were “included”. We’re so sorry if this was written in a way that was a bit confusing. I hope that clears things up!

So after the terms were updated on TCB site, is this 20% on any discounted gift cards, right?

Nicole. Can you clarify if this is 20% on up to $1,000, as in $200 total, or 20% on up to $50, as in max $10?

TopCashback Support

TopCashback Support

Hi Jakob,

$200 is the answer to your question! It’s 20% of whatever you spend. With a capped order value of $1,000.

I hope this helps,
Jack

I hope its true. Just placed an order. It really sounds to good to be true when you can use it on gas cards, sams club,etc

Hi Brian!

It’s definitely true! Your cashback should track within 7 days if you’ve placed an order.

So I’ve never used Raise before, but signed up for both TopCashBack and Raise, went through the links, and ordered a $100 Lowe’s gift card. It showed a 2% discount so it ended up $98. When does the 20% come in to play? At a later date, kind of like Ebates?

AlexL

Yes, like ebates.

Hi Jack (cool name!)

This should track to your account for you within 7 days but if that doesn’t happen, it can always be followed up through a missing cashback claim. I’ve shared the link below in case.

Maybe stupid, but the $1000 limit is on what you spend, not the value of the cards you buy, right?

Hi Audrey,

It should be based off the total amount you’re spending and not the value of the card, yes 🙂 If you have any trouble with this, please do let us know.

I dont understand thr logic of this offer. Who foots the $200 bill per customer? (Up to $200)

TopCashback Support
Guest
TopCashback Support

Hi Pointz,

This is a joint campaign between ourselves and Raise.com. We get paid in commission from the retailer and we pass this on to our members as cashback, we’ve then gone ahead and given this a bit of a boost from our own pockets. It’s the same as any other cashback offer you see on our site, except we’ve been able to get hold of this exclusive rate, just for our members!

Thanks,
Jack
