Doctor of Credit reposted a shopping portal bonus that I realized I had mentioned within a post here at Frequent Miler during the holidays, but this probably deserved a post of its own: shopping portal RebatesMe is offering a new member bonus of $45 cash back when you sign up through the Doctor of Credit referral link and earn at least $10 in cash back within 365 days of signing up. That’s a very easy bonus and a nice way to juice your cash back from another purchase.

Quick Thoughts

This is a really easy bonus to earn given that you’ve got 365 days to earn $10 in cash back to trigger the additional $45 bonus. I originally mentioned this bonus when writing about a GiftCards.com deal when RebatesMe had the best portal rate. On that particular deal, one would have earned $10 in cash back and instantly triggered the $45 bonus.

This time around, you could once again go through RebatesMe to buy discounted Visa Gift Cards to nearly trigger the bonus. You could alternatively go to RebatesMe and sort stores by cash back rate and it would probably be pretty easy to find a situation where you could earn $10 in one shot and the additional $45 would make for a nice return on something you’re buying anyway.

At the time when I previously mentioned RebatesMe, they were offering a public referral bonus of $40 for each side, so I had referred my wife rather than her signing up through Doctor of Credit since that gave us a collective $80 ($40 for me and $40 for her). That was about 30 days ago and the referral bonus tracked as expected for each of us (note that the public referral bonus has since decreased to just $10 for each side, so this deal through Doctor of Credit is significantly better). Our cash back from that deal is still pending, which is common with portal cash back and bonuses, but since everything tracked properly I am confident that it will pay out as expected. I’ve not used RebatesMe extensively because I don’t very frequently find them to have the best rate, but a few times they’ve been the best deal and I’ve cashed out money from them without issue.

Given the $45 bonus, it certainly may be worth signing up Player 1 at least through Doctor of Credit. You could then hope for a return of the $40 for each side at some point down the line to refer Player 2 or take another easy $45 through Doctor of Credit now. Either way, this is a good portal bonus for new users.

just fyi doc’s comments say that this portal doesn’t track very well


Can you do an update post about AA’s Loyalty Points soon? They announced it back in October but left a lot of the details out (Bask Bank? Hotel Programs? AA Vacations? etc.) about additional ways to earn them. It’s going to start January 1st and it seems like we should have full details available now.
