I made a podcast episode to go with this blog post. You can listen to it by clicking the link below.

In an earlier blog post, I answered the 20 most commonly asked questions about Ebates. – https://yourhelpfulaffiliate.home.blog/2019/08/19/ebates-review-in-20-questions-2019/
The first thing I would like to compare between these cashback applications is their sign up bonuses because they are different.
Ebates offers $10 for anyone who is a new user, signs up and makes a qualifying purchase using the Ebates app of at least $25 within 90 days of signing up.
Dosh has a signup bonus that works a little differently. Dosh gives you a $5 bonus for adding your first credit or debit card information to your Dosh accounting on the app. Doing this also makes it easier for Dosh to get you cashback while shopping with that card.
Ibotta offers a $10 welcome bonus. You can use the code XQLOOVA to get that sign up bonus.
Fetch Rewards offer a 2000 “points” sign up bonus after you scan your first receipt. You can use the signup code K4FFG to get this bonus. 5000 “points” can be exchanged for a $5 gift card.
GetUpside offers an extra $0.15/gal cash back on their first use. You can use the GetUpside referral code W9GNB to get this sign up bonus.
BeFugal offers a $10 sign up bonus. This bonus is payable when new members earn $10 in cashback using BeFugal. BeFugal also has a free product referral offer. Funds can be withdrawn from BeFugal once you have a minimum balance of $25. Funds can be withdrawn by check, PayPal or Amazon gift card.
Swagbucks offers 150 “Swagbucks” Sign Up bonus. You can earn more Swagbucks by answering survey questions, using coupons for Swagbucks and other fun things. One Swagbuck is equivalent to one cent. Swagbucks can be exchanged for cash through PayPal, gift cards and even products.
TopCashBack does not offer a signup bonus but is a very good cashback application.
Checkout 51 offers a $5 sign up bonus.
On the flip-side of the signup bonuses is the referral bonus. When you sign up for any of these apps they will give you a URL and/or a signup code you can share with friends and family. When someone signs up using your URL and meets the qualifications mentioned earlier, you get a referral bonus.
For Ebates the referral bonus is $25.
For Dosh the referral bonus is $5.
For Ibotta the referral bonus is $5.
For Fetch Rewards, the referral bonus is 2000 “points”.
For GetUpside the referral bonus is $0.15/gal based on referrals first gas payment plus $0.01/gal on any following gas payments.
For BeFugal the referral bonus is $10 when the person who signed up earns $10 within 1 year of signing up. You can also earn $10 when someone completes a free product offer from BeFugal.
For Swagbucks the referral bonus is 10% of your referrals Swagbucks earning for life!
For TopCashBack the referral bonus is $10, however, the person who signed up through your link must earn at least $10 cashback before you get your bonus.
For Checkout 51 the referral bonus is $10.
