Disclosure: I partnered with Giving Assistant to share this information below.
I admit I don’t donate as much as I’d like to. I try but life gets in the way and bills come up and our money gets distributed elsewhere. I do though shop a lot online. Well now there is a website that allows shoppers to not only save some cash while shopping online but also give back to charity.
Giving Assistant is on a mission to empower their users to give-back even more by making it easier than ever to shop responsibly while saving money in the process. They believe that if society works towards a better world through everyday purchases, companies will naturally evolve to become more socially responsible. They hope that society will build up their strength and momentum to forever influence the way we take care of our world and each other.
How does Giving Assistant help charities?
For every qualifying purchase originate through the Giving Assistant marketplace, Giving Assistant donates a meal to a needy family on the shopper’s behalf. A ‘qualifying purchase’ means that Giving Assistant is paid a referral commission from an affiliated store. They have partnered with thousands of stores and as a donor to the nation’s leading domestic hunger-relief charity, Feeding America.
That’s not all – Giving Assistant also gives back to shoppers!
Remember I mentioned that shoppers can save while shopping through Giving Assistant? Shoppers get 100% of the commission from Giving Assistant and are paid in days, not months. Yep you don’t have to anything other than log on to the Giving Assistant website and click on one of the 1,054 stores to shop at. You then just click the store link you want and shop as you normally would! You can get paid via a check ($5 minimum) or sent directly to your debit card ($1 minimum)!
For example, one store I found is AirportParkingReservations.com which I use to book my parking at the airport. Giving Assistant has coupons I could use plus right now I can earn up to 20% cash back! That definitely helps the cost of parking!
Don’t worry, there is a store for everyone on Giving Assistant. I mean with over 1,000 there has to be, right? Here are some of the popular stores available:
Oh and I even found you can earn cash back from shopping on Amazon.com! Yes there are certain restrictions, but if you are a regular Amazon shopper like me then you hit the jackpot with earning some cash back!
So you have nothing to loose!
