We are an Australian-owned and operated company that was established to specifically help our members reduce the cost of living and to support local businesses which are the backbone of this great country.
Slow wage growth and price hikes in the cost of essential goods and services are putting more and more Australian families under financial strain. A recent survey from NAB found that close to 40% of all Australian households are living under some form of financial stress – an alarming proportion of which admit to not being able to pay bills when they fall due. That’s why we started the Cash back App. We’re creating a new way for Australians to save that not only benefits people and families individually, but also supports the local business community and keeps our retailers afloat.
The Cash Back App was founded in late 2013 with the ambitious goal of building an industry-leading application and world-class team of developers capable of delivering thousands of dollars in savings to both customers and businesses alike all across Australia. The Cash Back App took the first step toward achieving its goal in 2015 with the launch of our very first beta in isolated regions in both NSW & QLD, offering instant cash back to customers and no transaction fees for merchants. Upon concluding the test launch in late 2015, the Cash Back App retired briefly as we secured our very own banking platform to facilitate a much higher volume of seamless transactions across the country.
After many years of research & development, the Cash Back App officially launched in February 2018 with a wide variety of new features designed to reduce the cost of living for the average Australia & support local business communities as a whole.
