Have you ever wondered if there is a way for you to earn Bitcoin as cashback? Maybe not. But, it IS possible!
Lolli – Browser Plugin
I recently stumbled across a browser plugin called Lolli. Lolli is one of a few plugins that allows you to earn cashback from online purchases in the form of Bitcoin OR cash deposited to your bank account. This is an excellent way for new users and non-techies to earn some Bitcoin without having to bother with exchanges, KYC laws, and all the other hoops that exist between them and Bitcoin.
We started Lolli with the goal of making it easy to earn, own, and share bitcoin with as many people as possible. We strongly believe in bitcoin’s power as a global alternative currency and universal store of value and want to share it with the world.
What makes Lolli stand out from it’s competitors is the major retailers featured in their cashback program. I was surprised to see massive names on the list like Walmart, Hotels.com, Groupon, Priceline, Barnes & Noble, and a whole laundry list of others. Below I’ve included a screen shot of some of their more than 500+ retailers and brands that they are partnered with. Everybody shops at Walmart. So why not get cashback, or should I say BTCback, and be making a nice investment in a great technology while you do it? There isn’t a reason why not. So do it!
As I stated before, Lolli makes it easy for regular people and non-techies to get involved with Bitcoin without all the extra knowledge or hassle needed to acquire it in other ways. I took a look at their mission statement, and no surprise, this is exactly what they say.
We believe that bitcoin is the future, however, bitcoin in its current state is not easily accessible. Our mission is to change this with Lolli, making it easy for everyone to earn, save, and share bitcoin.
We see online shopping as an incredible opportunity to both educate and reward people with the power of bitcoin.
We want to live in a world where every payment is as fast, inexpensive, and universal as sending a text message. We are on a mission to spread bitcoin to billions of people all around the world with the click of a button.
I believe that we will continue to see more services similar to Lolli as time goes on. It serves as an excellent adoption vehicle for newcomers and as a nice way to stash away some extra coins for current users and investors of Bitcoin. The more products and services built around cryptocurrencies, the better it will be for all of us in the end. We all know that cryptocurrencies are superior to fiat in nearly every aspect and I believe it’s only a matter of time until crypto becomes serious competition against fiat.
Pei – Mobile Application
An additional way for you to earn some Bitcoin cashback is by linking your existing cards to Pei.
Pei is a mobile application that links to your existing debit and credit cards and returns you automatic cashback for extra savings in Bitcoin or USD (Paypal or gift card).
Pei launched in 2018 and since then they have gained quite the following. You won’t be hearing many people saying they hate the app. No can hate getting cashback, especially when Pei has made it so easy.
You just simply link your cards to your Pei account and the next time you shop at a partner merchant using that linked card, Pei will automatically return your cashback rewards!
Pei is affiliated with over 60,000 locations nationwide and thousands of retailers, from Target to Trader Joe’s to Sephora, which gives you ample opportunities to earn cash back pretty much all the time, any time you shop.
By linking your card, you don’t have to worry about loading coupons, in-app purchases, or scanning receipts. You also don’t need to worry about buying a specific item, which can be the case for some cashback apps.
If you pick up some socks at Walmart or a latte at Starbucks you’ll earn cashback.
Pei takes care of everything for you and lets you earn your cash back in an easy and passive way. Pei basically turns your regular debit or credit card into a cashback card.
If you are concerned about security, keep in mind that Pei uses bank-level 256-bit encryption to keep your information secure. Your privacy is also protected by utilizing 2-factor authentication when linking your debit or credit card.
So far I’m really liking the Pei app and the cashback opportunities it provides. I’ve found the app easy to use, the earnings available quickly and haven’t had any glitches so far with the interface.
