10% Cash Back

Just follow the steps below to earn 10% cash back on your online purchases at over 1,000 stores:

  1. Find whatever store you want via our Home page.
    • Locate a participating retailer, such as Walmart, via our search tool;
    • Use the "See All Retailers" link to check out the full list of participating retailers; or
    • Choose any store in our "Top Cash-Back Brands" and "Recently Viewed" sections.
  2. Click the "Visit Store" button on your preferred retailer's ShopSmarter page.
  3. When the browser window opens from that click, just shop and complete your purchase in that window.

That's it! Once the retailer notifies us of your purchase, we'll apply 10% of your purchase sub-total (i.e., minus taxes, shipping and handling, and other charges) to your Savings Center.

You can also use our search tool to shop for specific products sold at any of the 1,000+ stores in our network — you’ll earn 10% cash back on those purchases, too.

  1. Enter a description of the product you want in the search bar. The description can be as general or as specific as you want; for example, you might:
    • Type in a category term, like "yoga gear";
    • Use an exact description, like "Gaiam Tree of Life Yoga Mat"; or even
    • Enter a SKU (stock-keeping unit) number, like "01871353043," to look for a specific item.
  2. Check out the search results. You can further limit your results according to price, category, brand (e.g., Gaiam), or store (e.g., Kohl’s) via the search filters in the left-hand column.
  3. Click any "Go" button to see more detailed product information from a specific store or to compare prices across several stores.
  4. Click any "Visit Store" button to open a new browser window and go straight to the product page on that store’s website.
  5. Use that browser window to shop on that store’s site and complete your order. Remember: You don’t have to limit your purchase to that item — or even buy that particular item. As long as you use the browser window that opened on your “Visit Store” click, you can add whatever you want to your cart and still qualify for 10% cash back on your purchase.

Regardless of how you choose to shop, we’ll credit your 10% cash-back earnings to your Savings Center account once the retailer informs us about your purchase. That typically occurs as soon as your order ships, usually within 5-7 days, but it could take longer if one (or more) of your items is on back-order. In any event, we'll send you a check for your total cash-back earnings at the end of each calendar quarter, according to the following schedule:

Purchase Period Estimated Payment Date
Jan 1 - Mar 31 Apr 15
Apr 1 - June 30 July 15
July 1 - Sept 30 Oct 15
Oct 1 - Dec 31 Jan 15

IMPORTANT: To be eligible for 10% cash back, your purchase must be made using the browser window that opens when you click the retailer's "Visit Store" button on ShopSmarter.com. That will allow us to confirm your purchase and apply 10% of it to your Savings Center account.

By shopping through ShopSmarter links, you can claim up to $1,000 every membership year in 10% cash-back earnings!

For detailed information about your 10% Cash Back benefit, including eligible purchases, how each 10% cash-back amount is determined, and much more, please be sure to check out our Terms of Service.

Price Comparison Tool

Our easy-to-use price comparison tool lets you check out prices and coupon offers on any item sold by the retailers in our 10% cash-back network — and find participating stores and/or specific products you want to buy (or just consider)!

  • Compare prices and deals on any item sold by the retailer in our 10% cash-back network. Whenever you search for a product, our search engine will comb through our participating retailers’ inventory and then show you every available item related to the search term you used, along with the price of each item at every store that sells it. Just click any item link to learn more about it, to compare its various prices at different stores, and to check out the available coupon(s) at any of those retailers that could lower the price even more.
  • Find participating stores. Simply enter any store name into the search bar, then click the “Go” button or press your "Enter" key. If that retailer participates with us, you’ll go straight to its ShopSmarter page.
  • Find any item sold by any store in our 10% cash-back network. You can type a wide range of terms into the search bar, then click the “Go” button or press the "Enter" key:
    • Enter a product category, such as "soaps and cleansers," to see a complete listing of every product in that category sold by the retailers in our network;
    • Type in a more specific phrase, such as "skin cleanser," to see an entire list of those items available at participating stores; or even
    • Try an exact description of the specific item you want, such as "Neutrogena Healthy Skin Visibly Even Foaming Cleanser," to browse the full list of products sold by participating stores that match your precise phrase.
  • Narrow your search as desired with our filters. Use any or all of the filters along the left-hand side of the search results:
    • Price. Enter the minimum and maximum amount you’re willing to pay, and see every product that matches your search description within that price range.
    • Category. Limit the results to certain kinds of products.
    • Brand. Check out just those items created by certain manufacturers (such as Neutrogena, in the skin cleanser example above).
    • Store. Select individual retailers (e.g., Walmart or Kmart) that sell the product you want.

With your ShopSmarter membership, you can shop more confidently, because you know you have access to the lowest prices and most up-to-date coupons for every item sold at over 1,000 stores in our network.
