Organisations that bring about positive change were celebrated at the ‘Anthill Cool Company Awards’ and Cashrewards was named and awarded ‘Number Crusher’ for 2017 (and we’re chuffed).
Launched in 2006 the Cool Company Awards were a way for Anthill to recognise Australian organisations that were making a positive impact in the Australian landscape amongst a number of categories. The ‘Number Crusher’ award is given to any online or offline community, membership, training program, directory or marketplace that has experienced growth and shown a substantial impact within or beyond its intended area of influence.
The award recognized the impact Cashrewards has had on the retail sector by offering its members Cashback on 1200 local and global online retailers when they shop through CASHREWARDS. Not only were we recognised for benefitting hundreds of thousands of members Australia wide, Cashrewards has also brought with it an awareness to retailers making them reassess their online activity due to the company’s performance model transparency.
COO Iain Skelton told Anthill, “We are creating an industry in Australia. To do this we have to educate both the retailers and consumers as to what Cashback is and how it works. The first reaction is usually it sounds too good to be true!” Iain went on to say, “we have built the technology to integrate 25 local and international affiliate networks in-house.”
And we have done just that! With more and more members joining each day consumers are starting to shop smarter and reap the benefits of shopping through the Cashrewards site. In the last few years, we’ve managed to give $33.6 million Cashback to our members. With bigger plans for 2018, Iain revealed to Anthill that there are plans to launch an app that will introduce an offline solution using card linked offers with a major credit card provider.
These are exciting times for us at Cashrewards as we are determined to bring our members the best cashback rates in market.
And what’s even cooler than us putting money back into your pocket?
As of July 1st, 2017, Cashrewards joined Pledge 1%, pledging 1% of cashback payments, employee time and equity to helping seriously ill children through our partnership with Starlight. Our goal is to help 10,000 seriously ill children by 2020 and we thank all our members for continuing to help us to reach this goal. Helping to bring smiles to the faces of seriously ill children, now that’s cool!
