I just signed up for a FREE savings program called Offermatic. Simply put it is a way to earn more rewards for using your credit card or debit card. I think the easiest way to understand how it works is just by watching the 90-second video below…
I signed up, it took about 3 minutes. I attached one debit card (which happened to be my cash-back debit card) so I am stretching my rewards even further using this. Come to think of it, you could even get more rewards by using Ebates (what is Ebates?) on top of that as well – dang! Saving money is becoming a lot easier these days!
Anyway, I like things like this to require little to no energy on my part, so Here is how I see a benefit…
- You get points for every item you purchase. So I don’t have to think about it, I just use my debit card and earn point that can be redeemed for gift cards (Amazon.com, Target, and a million others).
- They send me automatic rebates based on the places I shop. For example, we occasionally shop at Trader Joes, and Offermatic pulled this in for me…
Get a $5 automatic rebate on any purchase of $50 or more at Trader Joe’s!
Since you’ve recently made a purchase at Trader Joe’s, we thought you’d like this Offermatic special. All you have to do is make a purchase of $50 or more at any Trader Joe’s location before midnight on 10-27-2010 to get $5 credited directly back to your card. Simple as that. Your rebate will be applied to your card by Offermatic as a statement credit within 14 days of your qualified purchase at Trader Joe’s
Special Offer for ChristianPF Readers I talked to the CEO a bit about Offermatic and he offered a deal for the ChristianPF readers. Anyone who signs up using this link will get a 5% rebate on gas purchases for the next 60 days (up to $200 in purchases). So if someone spent $180 on gas purchases over 60 days, they would get a $9 automatic rebate directly on to their card. The rebate would be applied within 30 days after the initial 60 day period. (Sorry this offer has expired!)
Trying it out
Honestly since I just signed up, this isn’t as thorough of a review as I would have liked. My plan is to test it out for a couple months and then update this article with some info of how much I earned in rewards and automatic rebates.
(Also if you plan on using your PerkStreet debit card with it – the actual bank name that needs to be entered is “The Bancorp Bank”)
