Cash back and donate, all with Giving Assistant

Getting cash back on purchases is not a new idea, it’s one that has been around for awhile. So when I was asked to take a look at Giving Assistant, I didn’t really think too much, until I looked at the site deeper. Giving Assistant gives you cash back on your purchases, and then lets you decide what charity to donate to AND what percent of your cash back. I loved the idea that I could chose the charity.

Signing up for Giving Assistant, is so easy. I simply clicked sign up through facebook and in about a minute and I was ready to choose which charity I wanted to help out. They do have suggested ones if you aren’t sure who you want to help, or you can search for the exact one you want. I chose to give 50% of my cash back to Dysautonomia Foundation, Inc. The reason I chose this, is because I have POTS ( Postural Orthostatic Tachycardia is a syndrome) which is a form of Dysautonomia. There is no known cause for POTS, just a lot of speculation as every patient presents a little different. I would love to help the charity find a cure for this instead of just managing the symptoms.

The only payment information you need to put into their site is you debit card if you want your cashback to be sent to your bank. If you aren’t comfortable with that, you can choose to have a check mailed to you. There is no minimum amount you need to “cash out”, it does it right away and you have the money in just a few days.

Before you start shopping, stop by their site and login. Once you are there you can go through their links to shop. Go HERE for a full Cash Back Store list. That way it will recognize you and give you the cash back. I shop a lot on Amazon (probably too much) so it’s great that I can shop like normal and still help a charity at the same time. You can find anything through Giving Assistant, and if you don’t see the topic right there, you can always search for it. They also give you coupons to save even more money.

Not only do you get the items you wanted to buy, save money, get cash back, donate to a charity, BUT you also help feed a family. “For each coupon used we donate a meal to a needy family in America. This is possible through the wonderful work of the nonprofit, Feeding America.” It truly is a win win for everyone involved.

Please take a minute of your day and check out this amazing site, a small amount adds up over time and really does make a difference in people’s lives.

  1. I had not seen this before great idea since I have one child who had cancer and the other with a heart transplant, type 1 diabetes and Celiacs disease lots of choices of who to donate too. It all adds up when we all give together to a cause.

  2. I love this idea! I have used a few cash back apps, and I use survey monkey and they donate to animal causes for me, but this is just a great idea!

  3. This is a nice program that I wasn't aware of. Thanks for sharing!
