GreenBackStreet Description

GreenBackStreet.com is an online membership shopping program that gives all of its members rebates on the purchases that they make. This program works with well-known stores both offline and online; stores that are recognizable to everyone. Within this program are also a forum for members to communicate with each other, games that members can play for cash and prizes and a referral system for earning commission income.

GreenBackStreet Detailed Overview

GreenBackStreet.com is not based on a new concept, but it is geared toward the internet, which is a good thing these days. Shopping clubs where members can save money have been around for a long time, and this program has taken that idea and added an online forum where members can network with each other, and a networking marketing opportunity.

At the very base, you can join GreenBackStreet.com and save money on online purchases that you make from well-known stores. Membership in the program is always free, and once you sign up you can search for the store where you want to shop or the products that you want to buy.

When you purchase something through GreenBackStreet.com, you get a predetermined percentage rebate from your purchase. Rebate percentages range widely. How soon you get the rebate depends on the store, though the normal time is about 3 to 5 days. The rebate money goes into your account, and when you’ve accumulated $15 or more, you can ask for payment. You can choose to be paid through Paypal or by check.

One of fun parts of GreenBackStreet.com is that you can recruit others, build a downline and receive 50% of whatever rebates they get, and a percentage of the rebates that their referrals get as well.

Skeptics say that you’re not going to save any money with this program because when you order online, you have to pay shipping and handling costs, and those can offset and even overshadow any rebate savings. The trick is, though, to do the math when you’re buying. If because of shipping and handling you’re not going to save money with your rebate, move on. There do seem to be plenty of buying opportunities where you do save money.

GreenBackStreet Reputation

Overall, GreenBackStreet.com has gotten good feedback from its members, and there are quite a few members. Some non-members have questioned its validity and called it a pyramid scheme, but since membership is free, that’s a pretty empty complaint. As long as you shop wisely, you should get some nice discounts, and the participating stores are well-known. For anyone who’s interested, it’s certainly worth a try.

Who does not like cash back?

This site is free to join and gives you cash back on purchases online. I have to say this is a great website for anyone who does a lot of online shopping. There are a lot of stores which it offers rebates for, and you get cash back for purchasing anything from those stores. I would recommend this site to anyone who does any shopping online because money these days is tight and any money saved is great.

The website layout is awesome and I like this site. I have made one purchase on this site since joining it and I did receive 7% back from my $140 purchase which is amazing in my eyes. I just saved myself a good $10. I would recommend this site. The only down side about this site is that you have to use money to make money. You can never make a profit from this site. That's not the intention, but you do make money from shopping.

My Christmas Gift

I recently used this site to buy a Dell computer for my sister and to my surprise I earned an amazing 10% cash back. I am a member of other sites that offer cash back but I have never received more than like 6% back. This site is great because it offers cash back on things you already buy and with the recent recession who doesn't like a little help around this time of year. This is definitely one of my favorite sites and you even get cash back for your referral's purchases so you can't go wrong. This is truly the only site that I would give an A to so far.

Great site

As someone who does a lot of online shopping, I highly recommend GreenBackStreet. True, you do have to spend money to make money with this one, but if it's something that you're already doing, why not enjoy getting a percentage of that back? I especially find this handy when making large purchases such as buying textbooks. All of those percentages of cash back really start to add up over time!

Many sites I belong to offer some form of cash back, but I've found that GreenBackStreet often has a more competitive offer and they also offer many more sites. There are many sites on there that I'd never even heard of that I ended up purchasing off of which is really nice. I've found some amazing deals on magazine subscriptions this way.

GreenBackStreet also lets you know if the site you're ordering from has any current specials or promotions to really ensure that you're getting the most for your money. I highly recommend this site to anyone who shops online.

Saves me a lot of money!

On the summer I just bought a dell computer from this site and I got %10 back from what I spent. I am also planning to buy another dell computer for Christmas among other fun gifts for my friends. Among all the sites that I am a member of this is one of the best because it has a more wide variety of shops you can select from. I love buying from dell, amazon, and best buy. They are my favorite shops others sites won't give me the option to get a rebate from best buy or dell. I also get %50 back if I refer my friends. I have shared this awesome site with a lot of my friends because Christmas is just around the corner. They have thanked me a lot and I am so happy because I help them to save and get rewarded at the same time. I really recommend this site for your Christmas shopping.

Amazing for people like myself

I’d say 90% of what I buy these days is online because there are so many better deals. Not to mention the convenience of being at home. That is why I love this site, it’s free and you make money back for shopping, how awesome is that? There are some nice stores here as well that I normally like such as Best Buy, Amazon, Dell, etc. Some sites range from 1% cash back to as much as 30%! This site is a lot like Inbox Dollars, but I think this site has a better interface and the sites I like they offer a bit more back. It’s easy to use and anyone can just jump in and get it. I also love the fact that you can cash out via paypal, it helps me a lot when I use my paypal debit card because I have extra cash on hand. This site shines the most to me because of referrals. That’s where I am doing really well here, there are so many people who shop online now that once they get into this they will be doing all purchases through here.

If you are like me and do a ton of shopping online, do not hesitate and join you will not regret it.

GreenBackStreet Earn some Green

I think GreenBackStreet is a very good concept. It does promote online shopping and literally has hundreds of stores that offer rebates,

in particular it even offers rebates from merchants who participate in

the program from your own zipcode. The thing I don't like about GreenBackStreet is that it doesn't offer any cash rebates from shopping at Amazon.com. I get a number of Amazon giftcards from participation on other sites and this is one of the only places I regularly shop online.

I would be more inclined to use GreenBackStreet if it offered cash incentives for shopping at Amazon. GreenBackStreet is a decent site however.

This site gets an A+++

I love GreenBackStreet. This is one of the best cash back shopping sites I have ever seen. I like the fact that it was free to join, so no one will be out anything. I do quite a bit of online shopping so it is nice to be rewarded for it. And if I get 10% or more off my total I am jumping for joy. This site really could not get any better.

I highly suggest that any one and every one join this site. You will not be out anything and it is super easy to sign up. It is fast, easy and simple. So head over there today and see how much you can save.

GreenBackStreet is purely a rebate site

I joined this website about two months ago after reading about it on someone's make-money blog. I abandoned GreenBackStreet however, when I realized the only thing they offer is cash back from online stores, and I was expecting other ways to actually earn - not spend - money.

It does appear to be a good site to bookmark and remember to visit when planning to make a purchase online. But for me personally, Memolink, InboxDollars, etc. already offers the same thing. The site is organized fairly well with a "green" tint and everything in alphabetical order, but I feel they should give you examples of what the money-back percentages can translate to in real-world dollars (can you calculate 13.2% off the top of your head?).

GreenBackStreet has a nice forum and a fun "Spin the Prize Wheel" game, so if you don't use other sites that offer cash-back shopping, it could be worth it for you to check out.

No other site like it

I absolutely love this site. I do the majority of my shopping online for both personal and business related items. I love the selection of stores that are on this site as it seems like all the major retailers are on here. I have been able to save a great amount of money over the past eight months by using coupons and the free shipping with some stores. I have also been able to get a great amount of cash back on the purchases I make. When I order for my business, this amount is quite the amount at times. I would recommend this site to everyone mostly because a lot of people shop online these days. I am forever going to this site to make my purchases. It is absolutely the best, and I just can't say enough good things about it. It is highly recommended.

This Site Is Awesome!

I enjoy getting cash back from my purchases at Green Back Street. Cash back programs are essential, this is a clever way to spend and save money at the same time. For anyone who is skeptical about joining this program, I want to make it clear that they are very legit and they do pay members. I've actually compared this site to other cash back sites online and with Green Back Street I find that this site allows you to earn more, plus all the great coupons they have available!

If you frequently shop online, I would suggest you to sign up at greenbackstreet.com and start earning cash back rebates.

This is the Best Cash Back Shopping Site I Have Used

I am big on online shopping especially for things baby related, and GreenBackStreet has been awesome. Target is one of my favorite stores to shop at, both online and offline, and to be able to save there is a tremendous help especially for the upcoming holiday season. I have been a member of a few other sites similar to this one, but GreenBackStreet has so many more stores available to shop at online than those other sites I have joined. You can also save on products such as ebooks, internet and tv services, and crickets... yes, odd enough there is pretty much nothing you can't find on here. Oh and don't forget to check and see if you can save at your local businesses. If you are a huge online shopper, drop all the other sites and join this one. Highly recommended!

Not bad for free site

I would say if you shop online frequently and have many people you can refer to, then this site will work for you. You can make money by using coupons to save money, getting rebates to earn money, and through your referrals you make even more money. Free to join and the rebate seems like a good money saving idea. Unfortunately for me, I don't shop much online and when I do I only shop at certain sites, but the experience was not bad for me.

Free shipping codes and store pick up options

I've been a member of greenbackstreet for over a year and I love it! There are so many instances my family has found where stores offer free shipping, which more than offsets comparative pricing at other stores or malls. Many times this will come in the form of a coupon code emblazoned clearly across the store's site upon entering it. By typing in the code at checkout, you can usually receive either free shipping or pick the item up at a local store for free. And you'll also find online-exclusive specials at many of the stores. For instance, my husband recently purchased a pair of leather dress shoes there and received a site-exclusive $20 off, FREE shipping, and the store offered an incredible 12.40% cash back rebate, so I earned over $20 cash back on that order.

This is something that has changed shopping all the way around for me

The coupons alone was what got me excited. I was taken aback when I first joined because I didn't understand. But once I signed up I was amazed at all the coupons that they offered. My husband shops at finish line all the time so when I showed him Greenbackstreet, he was so hyped, he went and bought a pair of tennis shoes just to see if it was legit. He ended up getting what he wanted which was a few bucks off his purchase as well as cash back. I've never been in a store that gave my cash back for buying something. So this is a whole new way of looking at things. I have had greenbackstreets in my favorites for a few months now.

The referral program is neat as well. You can earn tons of money if you actually focus on building your referral list.

One of the best

I just joined this site a little over a month ago and the only regret I have is I wish I had found out about it sooner. There is just so many ways you can make money on this site. I personally like their referral program, where each time I refer someone I make 50% of their cashback earnings. They even provide free referral cards for you to pass out, which has helped me get a lot of referrals from my community. I also like the games that they have, because if you actually participate in them you have a pretty good chance of winning cash or prizes. They have one of the highest cashback percentage rates than some of the other sites similar to them. I have saved almost $100 so far by shopping at Macys, Bestbuy, and some of the other retailers they have listed. They have a online community where you can go and interact with the other members. I highly recommend this site to others.

Free Green for everyone right?

I signed up for this site about 18 months ago now. It offered the FREE members other incentives for joining then, until they changed their program. Back then in addition to the cash rebate incentives they offer for shopping through their portal. They would have a variety of other perks, and you could trade in for gift cards, etc...

I really liked it then, but now they don't have that and they offer a program that makes them more money, unless you're a savvy marketer. So if you already have a good network of people and have a decent sales pitch, it might make sense to join and upgrade. I'm still a FREE member, not that I can't market, but more so because I don't do a lot of shopping online and when I do, I do it at only a few trusted sites.

But if you are a online shopper, then sign up for the FREE membership to get the cash rebates and potential sales from the merchants you shop at frequently already.

Not bad, Not good

I can't say this was the best I've used, and I can't say it was the worst. I may decide to use it again in the near future. I've made a reasonable amount of money. Although it doesn't pay as much, other sites have more "catches" to watch out for, and this doesn't seem to have as much spam content as some other sites I have tried.

Great for Shoppers and Good Deals

I've really liked GreenBackStreet, and since the membership is free, there is really no downside. I've been able to get a lot of money back from rebates on the things I've bought online, and since the prices are usually cheaper online, it still winds up a better deal to buy through GreenBackStreet, even if you factor in the shipping costs. I've also enjoyed the forums, and have been able to find further great deals from other members through that. The referral program is a cool benefit, and even though I haven't used it too much, it a nice little perk. The couple dollars here and there definitely add up, and it's not hard to reach the $15 cash-out standard.

An interesting concept...

GreenBackStreet is a great place to get together and share an interest for shopping with other members. There are several opportunities to make money: reviewing, uploading photos, etc. I found it really great because a lot of the places were ones where I shopped at regularly. Rebates were super! I'm not typically a fan of online shopping, but I've really found myself doing a lot more now that I am a member at GreenBackStreet. Despite shipping and handling taxes, I have noticed a substantial drop in prices. Don't expect any miracles, but a few dollars really makes a difference! The great thing about GreenBackStreet is that it is a free service, and is really handy for searching products at certain stores, lowest prices etc!

Free membership is good

This is a great way to shop, and there are over 1000 merchants to browse. Building a downline here is pretty easy to do as it's free. There is an upgraded membership known as Independent Business Owner or IBO. After researching this further, I came to the conclusion it's pretty expensive. It cost $350 plus $29 per month. There are a lot of ways to earn under the IBO upgrade, but depending on where you live it may not make any sense. This company also doesn't really understand or support members outside of the US.
