Extra $240 cashback a year!

Postby Gamma » Tue Feb 19, 2013 12:29 am

So I came across this website https://greatbridgegroup.com/
You basically get extra cashback on top of the cashback/points you get with your reward credit cards for sharing your purchase history to them. They make the money by selling our shopping data. Seems like a legit site so I went ahead and connected my cards and got close to $20 bucks balance already. They pay you in the form of PayPal or Amazon gift card every 90 days starting the date when you first join (if you qualify.) To qualify, they must have an available opening in your area. Maximum amount you can get is $60 cashback every 90 days, $240 yearly maximum.

How do we know this is a legit shopping site? The cashback rewards sounds too good to be true just to mine our marketing data (which is available from other sources).
Cards:
American Express Platinum (NPSL)
Penfed Platinum Reward Visa ($28K)
Chase Freedom Visa ($25K)
Fidelity American Express ($20K)
American Express Blue Cash Preferred ($20K)
Bank of America Cash Rewards MasterCard ($20K)
Citi Thank You Preferred Visa ($9.5K)
Chase Sapphire Preferred ($7.5K)
US Bank Cash + Visa Signature ($7K)
Discover IT ($4K)

Well, I would argue that if someone really wanted to steal our information they would just probe our emails as nothing is secured in email. Anyone tried to apply for a job there yet? I find that is the best way to get a feeling for how legitimate a company is :)

There were two engineer positions when I looked.

OMG! It's amazing!

This has been posted on all of the credit card forums. I have yet to see any real testimony about it.

:) Well I hope I haven't emailed any passwords. But I did have a few long lost relatives who turned out to be Nigerian Princes, and they needed my information so I could help them send me money :P

I work with IT security consulting and I'm very familiar with online scams, malicious websites and etc... I have to say that in my opinion it's a legitimate business and website.
Just added my AMEX, there isn't much you can do with my online amex account anyways, it's just the easiest way for them to pull my transactions.

Thanks for sharing your opinion.

For those that are afraid of inputting their log in credentials, you also have the option of submitting a copy of your statement to them. I prefer logging in with my log in info because it shows how much $$ I get per transaction. Not sure how it will work submitting paper copies to them.
