What is Cashback? And how do I earn it?


We’ve introduced cashback on the Swipii app, but what is cashback?

If you’ve been hanging around the Swipii app in the past couple of weeks, or if you’ve been keeping up-to-date with our social posts, you’ll have realised that you can now earn cashback with Swipii! Woohoo! But what is cashback?

Cashback has been around for a while now, however, that there are many people who aren’t quite in-the-loop when it comes to earning cash back on your purchases. 


Cashback, in a nutshell, is “When you buy something, you get a percentage of the amount it cost paid back to you” (Source: Money Advice Service)

Basically, it’s an incentive to shop with a particular business! With Swipii, it’s a reward for shopping at one of our local participating locations. Getting rewarded for shopping local is what we’re all about! 


How do you go about earning cashback?

When you’ve got the Swipii app, when you shop with a linked card in participating locations (including Di Maggio’s, Bath St Burger and more), you earn some cash back! 

You can earn cashback on the Swipii app with our Swipii Deals or as part of the participating businesses’ loyalty programs.


Here’s how cashback on Deals works in the Swipii app:
