No— Dosh is completely different from companies like Ibotta and Ebates, which are mostly a variation on the same old affiliate marketing models. They take money for finding customers for brands/advertisers.
At Dosh, we use brands’ advertising/marketing budgets— much of which is wasted —and give back to consumers in cash back offers instead. This helps create a better connection between merchants, businesses and consumers. We also believe it fuels loyalty!
Many cash back apps require you to opt-in to offers or scan receipts; this obviously requires more work. Dosh is much more simple than that!
For online offers, get cash back automatically every time you use an eligible card that is linked to your Dosh account by tapping the Shop or Open button on the merchant’s page in the app. You will be directed to their app or website where you can complete your purchase- we'll take care of the rest!
For local offers, get cash back automatically every time you make a qualifying purchase at a participating location using an eligible card linked to your Dosh account. You can search for nearby offers in the app using our map feature!
The details of any Dosh offer can be found by tapping on the offer and scrolling down to the “More Info & Fine Print” section. These details include but are not limited to category exclusions, restrictions, max daily caps for cash back earned and the addresses of participating locations near you.
Please note: If you are using your linked debit card for an in-store purchase, you must swipe it like a credit card to receive your cash back automatically. Otherwise, the transaction may not register in our system and you will have to contact customer support to receive cash back. This is a known caveat in the industry and not isolated only to Dosh. We track your cash back through your qualifying credit card transactions, not your bank transactions!
