Reader Andrew sent in about another card-linked rewards program called Pogo Cash. Add your card to Pogo using the Plaid system, and then earn cashback at retailers with certain categories. You can also link your merchant logins (e.g. Amazon login, Walmart.com login, Kroger login, etc) and earn points on your purchases that way.
No need to scan any receipts – just shop in the categories and you’ll earn cashback (around .1%-.2% back, according to reader Andrew) via PayPal or Venmo. You do need to click ‘redeem’ on each transaction every day, but it’s an easy click.
As always, you’re basically giving away your date for a bit of cashback. Do what you’re comfortable with.
