Hooked on cashback with Caddle

Spotlight on: Caddle

What I scored: Here’s my fishy tale on my big earnings with Caddle.  It started with some completed surveys that indicated I enjoyed eating frozen fish.  It turned out Janes was promoting their line of breaded fish fillets, so I was presented with personalized cashback offers for Janes Fish:

Janes Fish
Janes Fish in my freezer. Look, $4 coupon inside!
  • July 19, 2018 – Survey ($0.05): Frozen Fish
  • July 26, 2018 – Video & Survey ($0.10): Janes Fish
  • Aug 2, 2018 – Purchase Cashback ($4.00): Buy 1 Janes Fish – 2 x $2.00
  • Aug 2, 2018 – Purchase Cashback Bonus ($1.00): Buy 2 Janes Fish – 1 x $1.00
  • Aug 2, 2018 – Post-purchase Survey ($0.25): Janes Fish
  • Aug 2, 2018 – Review ($0.25): Janes Fish

From Caddle alone, I earned $5.65; on top of that, there was a sale on Janes Fish for $8.99 per box (savings of 3.00 each).  The two boxes of Janes Fish  effectively cost me $12.33 (before tax).  Without Caddle and paying full price, the fish may have cost twice that much!  Wow!

How I did it: I used Flipp to search for Janes Fish and saw it was on sale at Metro.  The Caddle cashback for a single box was only $2, but taking advantage of the bonus cashback, I was able to earn $5 by purchasing a second box.  The surveys before and after the purchase made it a bargain!  AND, these boxes have a $4 coupon inside for next time!
