Endorse: Earn Cash Back for In-Store Purchases!
I was thrilled to learn about a new app called Endorse that allows you to earn cash back when physically shopping in the store. That's right..you can earn money for purchasing specific products in your local stores and restaurants! YAY! :)
Here’s how it works:
* Head on over here to sign up for the Facebook App (You will need to have a Facebook account to use this program). When you sign up for Endorse, you will receive a Welcome Package in the mail containing free mailers. It should take approximately 5 days for them to arrive. Endorse has created a simple pre-paid mailer service like Netflix. Continue reading and I’ll explain how you use the mailers. Please note that you must provide your mailing address when you sign up so that Endorse can you send you the Welcome Package.
* Click on the Products tab to view all the current products available to endorse and choose one or more products that you are interested in endorsing. You can choose from items like Diet Coke :), Pampers Cruisers, Victoria’s Secret Pink items, Huggies Diapers and/or Pull-Ups, Luvs Diapers, Similac Formula, select CoverGirl cosmetics, eating at McDonald's/Dominos/Burger King/Subway/Pizza Hut, or simply by shopping at Old Navy, Baby Gap, HyVee, Target and so much more!
* You’ll then be able to share your endorsements with your Facebook friends.
* Once you purchase the endorsed item(s), simply toss in your receipts to the free mailer, put the mailer in the mail, and earn cash back. Endorse will scan your receipts, match your purchases to your endorsements, and calculate your cash-back and/or endorsement bonus based on how many others in your group also participate in the same endorsement.
* The more of your friends that buy your endorsements along with you, the more you earn. There are two components to the rewards: an overall cash reward and an endorsement bonus. You and your followers all get 10% cash back off the purchase price— every time you buy. And, once you get 5 friends to buy your endorsed products, yours is free. Endorse actually pays you back what you paid for the product!
* Once your Endorse account balance exceeds $25, you may request payment in the form of a check.
Here's the secret to getting started (This is just an idea to get you thinking!):
Here is an example to get ya thinkin’:
(1) You endorse Chiquita Bananas and find 5 of your friends who also love Chiquita Bananas
(2) Both you and your friends buy Chiquita bananas
(3) Everyone earns 10% back and you, as the first endorser, get back the full purchase amount. Yes, yours is free!
So if you’re interested, feel free to share your personal endorsement links below. I am all about letting you help one other.
