Cashback, a service that rewards consumers

Imagine going to the store and paying for your groceries with a credit card -- and getting some money back every time you do so: this is the idea behind cashback cards. Cashback means you earn a small percentage back every time you use a credit card for your daily purchases. There are many ways you can get cashback after purchase. Which stores do cashback on credit cards also depends on the issuer and its network: they can include supermarkets, department stores, drugstore chains, online retailers, gas stations and more.

What is a cashback credit card?

Many people wonder: how does a cashback credit card work? Basically, it’s a credit card that gives you a rebate every time you use it. For example, if you have a 2% cashback card and you use it to buy a 1,200 euro laptop, you would earn 24 euros back on that purchase.Some cards have a flat rate, earning you the same percentage on all purchases;
others are cashback bonus cards, where making certain kinds of purchases within a set period of time gets you a larger amount of money back.

Cashback bonus: how to use it

Depending on your card, you can redeem your cashback bonus by applying it to your credit card balance, requesting a check or bank transfer, or using it for reward points. With automatic cashback, the money shows up directly in your bank account. Some issuers offer cashback match programs, which means they will match the bonus you’ve earned, so you get twice the refund.
