How to Maximize Your TopCashback Experience

How to Maximize Your TopCashback Experience

It's happened a few times. You click through to the merchant of your choice from the TopCashback portal, yet when you go to check your account after completing your purchase, you're shocked to see that your purchase hasn’t tracked. Immediately you think you must’ve been cheated from the deal.

Rest assured, this isn’t the case. With just a few of these simple, rather mindless tips, you can be pretty confident that your purchases will track properly.


 

  1. Be sure to clear all your cookies/cache before signing in to your TopCashback account to begin shopping.
  2. Double-check that you don’t have ad blockers of any sort installed on your device.
  3. Be mindful that once you’re shopping on the TopCashback site, you must stay on the site without navigating anywhere else on your desktop. For example, don’t check your email in between your browsing/shopping on TopCashback.
  4. Always triple-check the terms and conditions of each merchant to ensure that you’re not breaking any of the qualifications to receive your cash back. Some items, for example, might not be eligible for cash back.
  5. Refrain from using coupons or promo codes that are not offered by TopCashback. Discounts of any sort can disqualify you from receiving cash back.
  6. Canceled/Returned items will no longer be eligible for cash back once that is completed.
  7. Some merchants recommend that you start your shopping with an empty cart. So, as always, it's best to read the terms and conditions thoroughly.
  8. If you don't want to completely remove your ad blocks or extensions, consider disabling them at the time of purchase.
  9. Not sure how to clear your cookies/cache? Consider shopping from a private browser or incognito window instead.

 

We always want our members to get the most out of their TopCashback experiences, and we understand it can be quite easy to overlook some of the verbiage in the terms and conditions. But if you take those extra few minutes to make sure everything looks good on your end, it will really pay off!

andre45Sep 09 20 - 06:32Please ignore my previous advice to use an incognito window. Chromium is now blocking third-party cookies in incognito windows as of version 83, so assuming third-party cookies are required, that won't work anymore. A regular window should work as long as one checks the Settings to make sure all cookies are allowed, including third-party cookies.

Also, some browsers, including Safari and Firefox, now block third-party cookies by default. These 2 browsers have over 20% Of total browser share. In addition, Chromium is expected to block them by 2022, so that needs to be watched.
Hi Andre,

Thank you so much for sharing this wonderful advice with our members. We really appreciate your feedback.

Best Wishes,

andre45Aug 25 20 - 01:37It's not necessary to remove extensions such as ad blockers. Temporarily disabling them is enough. It's not necessary to clear cookies either, if one completes the entire process (from clicking through from TopCashback to completing the order on the merchant's site) in a single private browsing/Incognito window. When such a window is opened, preexisting cookies are hidden, but new cookies can be set for the lifetime of the private window. Please update your advice, as extensions and cookies are useful, and many people will understandably not be willing to remove/Clear them permanently. Thanks.
Hi There,

Thanks so much for the additional suggestions! These may be helpful alternatives to the tips already suggested so we may consider adding in some of these as additional options.

Best Wishes,

Member525917535824Jul 28 20 - 08:08Is there any way that TopCashBack could add a test web page to verify that our browser settings are correct? Also please be more specific about which cookies to clear. It is a pain as some other sites I use depend on their cookies.
Hi There,

Thank you for reaching out. We don't currently have a way to test browser settings, but you should just make sure that all ad blockers are turnd off. For how to clear cookies, it may look a bit different on every browser, but essentially right nefore clicking through to TopCashback to make a transaction it is recommended to visit your settings to clear your data. For example on Chrome, simply visit, "history", select "clear browsing data", and leave all check marks "checked" where it asks if you'd like to clear your cookies, cache, and history. I hope this helps :)

Best Wishes,

Dominique

cerendallJul 16 20 - 00:46How, on an iphone with current ios version, specifically do I do steps 1 & 2 listed??
Hi There,

If you visit "settings" and then select the browser you're using there will be an option to "clear history and website data"
