They've arrived! Israeli cashback sites

 3% cashback for flying El Al? 4% for your purchases through Groupon?

You just knew this was going to happen eventually, didn't you?

So far, I've mentioned American and British-based cashback websites and how they can save you money on your online purchases abroad (and if you're unfamiliar with the idea of cashback, I highly recommend you go read the post about it before reading this one). It was only a matter of time before some enterprising Israelis decided to import the concept here.


Thus was born Cashback.co.il .


The site is fairly new - only a couple of months - but they've already managed to attract the attention of some heavy-duty internet shoppers I know, who've already cashed out on their purchases.They've also been written up in Ynet (According to their Facebook page ) on May 19th, 2015.

Cashback.co.il has snagged some attractive cashback deals not only with major Israeli retailers and providers of services such as El Al, Issta, WallaShops, Golf Kids & Baby and Mega BaInternet, but also several international favorites - JDate (NIS 30 cashback), and 5% cashback for purchases at Next, Asos and StrawberryNet, among others (If you don't know what these online shops are, see my series on buying cosmetics and toiletries, as well as how to buy clothing and shoes for less online). Unlike the US and British cashbacks, they even have a decent percentage of cashback for iHerb* and several Chinese websites .

Cashback.co.il gives you an NIS 10 reward just for signing up, and you can cash out your earnings to your bank account or your Paypal account once you reach NIS 100.

I only mentioned one Israeli cashback website so far. So why, you may ask, do I speak of  'sites' in the plural?

The reason for this is that there's another Israeli cashback website called CashbackIL . However, I have much less input and information about the veracity of this site and am in the process of researching this, so I can't recommend it to you as of yet. However, you're welcome to check the site out yourself, sign up and help me check whether this site is to be recommended as well (keep in mind they can't access any of your private money; the worst thing that can happen is that you won't get your cashback).

Happy Shopping!
