Last Cyber Monday I was in the market for a new backpack (sidebar: it is really hard to find a max carry-on size backpack that doesn’t have those vexing convertible straps). Backcounty.com had some good sales and I was looking to stack coupons.
I came across CouponCabin and noticed their cash back program. Comparing on Cashback Monitor to other sites it was the best.
I didn’t see CouponCabin listed on other comparison sites, either, so I asked the founder of Caskback Monitor, a FTU regular, why. He said CouponCabin does not allow comparison sites to list their rates, though continues to contact them to make that possible. A similar issue with RetailMeNot.
Amazon Gift Card Payout Bonus
In addition to often high cash back rates, CouponCabin regularly runs 20% payout bonuses if you select Amazon gifts cards.
This not a 20% on buying gift cards. This is a 20% bonus for selecting Amazon gift cards instead of other methods like cash, on cash back payouts your are due to receive from other shopping.
The current offer runs for payouts through February 28, 2018. If you have pending payouts, consider making the switch. Otherwise, be ready for next time.
My only order to date was that Backcountry one, placed in November, paid out in January with the 20% bonus that month, too.
New Account Bonuses
I don’t see a current refer-a-friend program. However, when you do register a new account, you’ll be prompted to select various offers with extra bonuses, such as installing their browser add-in.
In my above order you see two of those bonuses.

Frequent buyers earn more with their VIP Program. You start with 1% bonus on the cash back earned, then for each order in a month you go up another percent. There are many exclusions, so dig into the terms if planning to scale it.
