Cashback or Reward Points: What’s better for you?

We all love reward points and cashback programs.  It’s great to get points or money back  simply by doing what we already do – shop, play games, search on the web and more.   There are programs for everyone.  For example, for the person who has a long commute to work, there are great cash back programs that give up to 5% cash back on gas purchases.  Online, there are lots of sites where you can earn cash back simply by shopping at your favorite sites, or earn reward points just for doing some of your favorite activities, like searching or playing games.  Right here at RewardIt, we’ll be offering a great program for earning reward points and getting cash back too!

So which is better – cash back or reward points programs?   I personally don’t think either is better, it’s just a matter of personal preference.  In fact, you can participate in both types of programs.   Here are the advantages of each program to help you find out which you like best:

Advantages of Cash Back

It’s money in the bank! The name says it all.  Cash back reward programs put money right back into your pocket and you can also earn more when you put that money into a savings account.

Do what you want. While reward points can be used to get some of the coolest new gadgets, gift cards or even travel, with cash back you can use the money to buy whatever you want.

A dollar is a dollar. Some people just feel like cash is better than points, as it seems more “real”.  Reward points certainly do have a specific value and are fun too, some people just prefer cash.

Advantages of Reward Points

Special Bonus offers.  Many reward programs offer special bonuses and offers, such as getting double points.

You can reward yourself.  Having cash is cool, but the idea of being able to use points to spoil yourself can be fun, whether it’s towards a vacation or something you’ll personally enjoy.  Plus, you don’t have to spend cash, just use your points.

Instant Rewards. Many reward programs will give you bonus points as a thank you for signing up with them, so you are ahead of the game from day one!

Free Rewards.  Many reward programs like RewardIt offer reward points for doing stuff that doesn’t even cost you anything, like playing games or even just searching

Here are just a few of the benefits of each program, but in the end, it all comes down to you. Don’t limit yourself to either cashback or reward programs…participate in both, right here at RewardIt.  At RewardIt you will be able to earn rewards for doing all kinds of things like searching, watching videos, playing games, taking surveys and much more.  You will also be able to earn cash back on purchases you make from our RewardIt shopping mall.  At RewardIt you will be able to get the best of both worlds!   And be sure to do your research on each program before you sign up.  Free to contact me with questions or comments and have a rewarding day!
