Holidazed: Get money back from shopping for Christmas gifts

11 December 2018

I cannot believe this. In all the years that I have been carefully crafting and posting my Christmas wish lists the moment the clock strikes twelve to signal December 1, this is the very first time that I neglected to do so. And it's not like I only missed a week. I missed ELEVEN days! I cannot believe this.

I used to make really nice wish lists, too. I prepare them several days before December 1, making sure that my collages follow one cohesive theme per year. I spend so much time on them, never mind that I rarely get my wishes or I end up getting them for myself anyway.


The holidaze caught me hard that I completely lost track of the days. I didn't realize Christmas is two weeks away! Work has been eating up most of my time and energy and whatever I have left, I spread to my boyfriend, family, friends, and my business. Hopefully once the Q4 rush is over I can get some time to breathe before preparations for summer campaigns get underway.

Now even though I forgot about it doesn't mean Christmas can be shrugged under the carpet and forgotten until time convenient for me arises. I still need to get Christmas presents for my family and friends but now that I'm older and get to appreciate the finer points of technology, going to overcrowded malls and dealing with traffic jams and other harried holiday shoppers do not sound appealing to me. Thank God for online shopping, and thank God even more for I discovered a smarter way to shop and I am sharing it with you.

Presenting: Shopback with the app available on Android and iOS!

So what does Shopback do?

ShopBack takes all the things we love about online shopping: no lines, no crowds, and no closing hours, and making it even better. Thanks to ShopBack, every gift you buy gets you a gift in return!

Basically, it's a cashback platform, the smartest online shopping hack. But wait, what is cashback? Cashback is basically a rebate wherein you earn back a portion of every peso you spend. It’s a brilliant way to save on purchases because you get something back after.

See, I have had Shopback for less than a week but I already got Php 92.33 back! Both purchases are from Honestbee: chocolate cake and milk tea.

With ShopBack, you can earn as much as 25% cashback on every amount you spend. This is nothing like the “reward points” from conventional reward programs—you gain actual real cash that you can transfer straight to your bank account.

So what do you have to do and is it complicated? First of all, it's so easy. All you have to do is open Shopback, look for the shopping app or website you would like to shop in, and proceed as normal. It's like you're just adding an extra step before you proceed with the transaction.

Here's a fool-proof list of instructions:
  • First, you must create an account on www.shopback.ph (you can also download the smartphone app or install the browser extension). After you register, you can browse through ShopBack’s partner stores. There are hundreds spread across all categories, including popular stores like Zalora, Lazada, Booking.com, Foodpanda, Traveloka, Honestbee, and more.
For example, I went to the Shopback app and looked for Sephora.

  • Once you select a merchant, ShopBack will display details such as cashback rates, coupons, and all available promos for that particular merchant.

  • Just click on “Back to Store" or "Shop Now” to be redirected to the merchant’s website.
  • Use that tab and shop as you usually would. It’s that simple!
The cashback should show up on your account once everything has been verified by Shopback.
    And since I got to explore Sephora, I will go ahead and share my wish list/ to buy list, all from Fenty Beauty. Rihanna can take my money for all I care. Kidding. Not kidding.
