I look at deals on both Cheapies & OzBargain on a daily basis, and particularly in Australia, there are a lot of deals that offer 'Cashback'. In New Zealand, the main Rewarders for TheMarket seem to be KiwiWallet & ShopRewards. CashRewards in Australia seems to be dominating in general. 


If I shop for Noel Leeming items through The Market, I get to take advantage of Noels current up to 40% discounts + utilize The Markets discount codes + cashback. 


Anyone have any experience with any of these Cash Back companies? Doesn't have to be The Market specific. Just a recent example.

A number of years ago now, but there was a crowd I did some work with from AU...they were looking to do Cashbacks here...wanted to use Prepaid cards (like a prezzie card) rather than depositing cash into accounts.

I took advantage of some a few years back. 


Got a prezzy card from HP.  Took a while to get processed but still received it within their stated deadline.


Two cashbacks from Brother.  Super efficient, paid out within a week.


I don't believe all organisations are as good at it as my examples though.  I recall reading some threads on here I think about ASUS not responding to some applications at all (but don't quote me on it).  May be do a GZ forum search on cashback or rebate.

So many people complaining about yogurt these's becoming a culture.

I received $150 cashback from Brother for a laser printer last year and they paid out within 2 days.

Do whatever you want to do man.

Thanks for the feedback. I've read similar in that companies such as KiwiWallet are a bit slow to give back cash. Items purchased in January was the example given. Just seeing if anyone recommended a particular company. Double edged sword though. Will make me want to buy more. If The Market had more internal PC Parts stores, then I would definitely consider one of their associated cashback providers.

About 18 months ago we bought a Nespresso machine from Harvey Norman that had a cashback on it.


Nestlé NZ dicked us around for months. Their CB registration website was a nightmare and when we called, their staff were useless. I definitely got the impression that the whole thing was designed to put us off. Several deadlines they gave us were broken. However we pursued it out of principle - we got the Prezzie Card about four months after it was first due.

Sometimes I just sit and think. Other times I just sit.

Likewise, I bought a Brother MFC for about $156 and got a $150 cashback after a few days!

I've managed to get them when they've been promoted here. Dell just completely ignored me though. But I got them back when i blocked their account manager calls for renewing business warranty policies for their machines with them. Guy must've called at least once a day for a month and left messages each time before I finally blocked the number. I was nowhere near as persistent in trying to get the cashback.

I've used KiwiWallet in the recent past with TheMarket, Hallensteins and


With KiwiWallet you need to have something like $40 cash back owing to you before you can withdraw it though, and I haven't quite reached that number so I don't know how they are with actually paying it. I also currently have a ticket with them for a transaction that's never shown up in my account which hasn't been responded to a week after submitting.
