HSBC is offering a new HSBC Cash Rewards credit card with no annual fee and a $150 bonus when you spend $500 or more in the first 3 months from account opening. Additionally, you’ll get 2% cash back on purchases made within the first 6 months from Account opening, and 10% Anniversary Bonus on all Cash Rewards earned each year. The card also comes with no foreign transaction fees and other decent travel benefits.
We recently applied for this HSBC Cash Rewards Mastercard to earn $150 cash back after spending $500 in the first 3 months of account opening. This a really low spending requirement to make in three months of opening to get a $150 bonus. The process was easy with HSBC and we instantly got approved which was a relief because other banks such as BarclayCard and Chase have made it harder and harder lately. The credit limit was much lower than we would get with other banks but we only need to spend $500 so that’s more than OK.
2% cash back on purchases – You’ll make 2% cash back during the first 6 months from account opening then 1.5% cash back after those months are over.
10% Anniversary Bonus – Earn this bonus on all Cash Rewards earning each year.

Dosh is a new card linked loyalty app where you link your debit or credit card and you receive credits for making purchases with Dosh partners. The credit can then be donated to charity or transferred to your bank account. They also have a travel section where you can earn credit for booking hotels, renting cars or booking activities.
Go to the Dosh App here and get a $5 Bonus for adding a card.
$1 Per Card You Link
You get a $5 bonus for adding your first card but you can also add another dollar per additional card you add. Just make sure to click in and out of the cards section of the settings and you’ll see a banner at the top that says $1 bonus for adding another card. It worked for 2 additional cards for us.
$25 Hotel Booking Offer
Dosh is now offering $25 cash back on your first hotel booking made through the Dosh App, and that’s on top of the cash back you will earn for the hotel booking itself. Once you log in to the app, visit the “Travel” section, where the $25 bonus offer will display upon your first visit. There is no registration needed, so you just book a hotel to get your $25 bonus. You can book a huge selection of hotels around the world with the Dosh App and earn cash back for every stay that you complete, so take advantage of this $25 hotel cash back promotion if you are planning to book a hotel stay.
Dosh has raised over $6 million in investments so we know this app may be around for awhile (at least a year- ha!). According to Dosh they have partnered with over 100,000 brands and merchants to offer their users opportunities to earn credits. Currently, it seems that the card-link offers on Dosh are either for restaurants or some retailers such as Forever 21, Hallmark stores, or Sam’s Club.
Card linked loyalty programs are no-brainers for the most part. You can connect your credit cards and do shopping without worrying about receipts like you do with Ibotta or clicking links like you do with Ebates. Dosh runs on Empyr, along with a number of other loyalty dining programs that run on that platform including MOGL, Living Social, Swagbucks, and Yelp. If you are signed up for Yelp Cash Back for example you cannot use Dosh with the same cards since they use the same backend network.
One great thing about a card linked loyalty programs is merchants cannot restrict what transactions do and don’t earn rewards. You can’t restrict a purchase that uses a coupon for example. Dosh aims to provide value to merchants by using geo-targeted offers which can also benefit the consumer. When there’s an offer in your area you’ll be alerted to that specific deal.
In our area we noticed that the Dosh app offers a few local deals that you do not see on Yelp or Swagbucks:
7% back at Hallmark stores
2% back at Sam’s Club (Wholesale Club) – You can double dip this with a Sam’s Club MasterCard.
10% back at Denny’s restaurants
You only need $15 in credits to redeem your “Dosh.” So the best best would be to try out the app and use it until you hit $15 and cash out and move onto another card-linked app in the network and get that bonus.
Uber announced the details of their anticipated new credit card this week. Key features include 4% cashback on dining, $100 signup bonus, $600 in cell phone insurance, and a $50 subscriptions (e.g. Netflix, Hulu) benefit.

- 4% back on dining which includes restaurants, fast-food restaurants, takeout, and bars, including UberEATS. You really can’t beat the 4% dining cashback with any other card unless you have Chase Freedom or Discover IT at 5% during the 3 months a year they offer this.
- 3% back on airfare, hotels, travel agencies, and vacation home rentals including AirBnB
- 2% back on online purchases which includes online shopping, Uber, and streaming services. This includes retailers such as Amazon, Walmart, Best Buy, and Macy’s, as well as Netflix, Pandora, HBO Now, Apple Music, iTunes, and Google Play.

Also does not include online purchases from merchant category codes that include Utilities, Contracted Services, Government Services, or Professional Services.

Ibotta is an app and site which offers rebates and cash back for in-store purchases and, app purchases, and online shopping.
Sign-up here to get a $10 Bonus from Ibotta! See how to get the bonus below.
The majority of the site is dedicated to in-store rebates which offers cash back when you purchase specific items from a participating store.
After saving a specific deal in the app, proceed to buy the product and get cash back into your Ibotta account. You might get $.75 back on the purchase of Toiletry Wipes, $.25 back on milk, or $3 back on a case of beer, for example. They normally offer cash back on just taking a photo of a receipt or buying a generic (any) brand of milk or cheese.
Just make sure to save or unlock the deal before making the purchase. Go to the Unlocked Deals tab in the app to see which ones you’ve already added. Once added, it doesn’t need to be added again until it expires.
Sometimes you have to answer a poll or question about the brand before being able to save the deal. Which is no hassle at all and is probably how the brands pay iBotta to give you generous discounts.
Finding the best deal
Most deals are specific to a given store. Before shopping in Target, browse the Target section of the app and see if there’s a deal on any products you’re planning to buy. Alternatively, you can search by category, such as Grocery or Clothing, for all items in that category from all stores combined.
To be eligible for the rebate, items need to be purchased at specific stores. Usually, the deals are specific to one store such as Target, Walmart, Kroger, Whole Foods, Sprouts, etc). Other times you can get the rebate by purchasing the item at any partner store. Here is a list of all ibotta store partners. Look at the offer details carefully before buying.
Confirm your Purchase
In order to confirm that you purchased the item and thus qualify for the rebate, Ibotta requires one of two things:
1. Scan the barcode and submit receipts after the purchase.
For products which need receipt submission, they need to be scanned into Ibotta within 7 days of the purchase and before the offer expiration date which might sometimes be just one or two days away.
2. Another option is to link your store loyalty card before the purchase (Plenti card for Rite Aid or SYW for Sears). This option is only available at select retailers.
Aside from the item-specific offers such as Kombucha Probiotic drink, Tom’s toothpaste or Redbull, we’ll occasionally see an offer to get a few dollars off any purchase at a given retailer for something generic. For example, there was once a deal to get $5 off $50 for any Staples purchase or $5 off $100 for any Best Buy purchase. Currently, I see any cheese, any milk offers for purchase in-store.
These offer are way more useful since they’ll work for anything purchased at that store.
Ibotta also has a shopping portal for select merchants with competitive rates. The portal is only found in the app, not on the Mac or PC.
Before we dive into their portal rates, here’s how to find the available shopping portal merchants. Go to the bottom of the home page in the app and click on Mobile Shopping > All to see all merchants. You can also pull up a specific online retailer that from the search bar in the app.
There are currently around 30 retailers on their shopping portal; it’s by no means a full-scale shopping portal. You will see however far better deals than on Ebates and Swagbucks at various times. One example is Boxed.com offered a 10% cash back when on Ebates it only comes up at 2% as of this writing.
One interesting portal deal is a 2% eBay cash back rate which is a bit higher than other portals. You can either click through Ibotta to the eBay app or shop within the Ibotta app on eBay. We’ve used both of these options and they’ve consistently tracked the portal properly. There’s a limit of $10 per transaction, though, so keep that in mind for large purchases. (more…)
