Zip customers to receive 3% back on all transactions until January 2021

By Ceyda Erem ·

Christmas is officially a month away, which means Aussies across the country are getting their wish lists in order and wallets ready. 

To make Christmas shopping a little more worthwhile this year, Buy Now, Pay Later (BNPL) platform, Zip has launched a new campaign that gives back to its customers. 

Zip Pay customers who use ‘Tap and Zip’ will receive 3% back on all transactions (up to a maximum of $30 per transaction) at any physical or online stores that accept Visa. 

Tap and Zip launched in late October and is a feature that lets Zip users make a contactless payment with their smartphone. It can be used for everyday spending on things like groceries, public transport and petrol. 

“Consumers are increasingly turning away from traditional models of credit because they aren’t fit for a purpose,” said chief customer officer at Zip, Steve Brennen. 

“Throughout the pandemic, more than 800,000 credit cards have already been cancelled by Australians looking for better ways to pay.” 

Just keep in mind that the bonus 3% back offer is only available until 8 January, 2021.

Other ways to save or make cash this Christmas

2020 has been a financially tough year for many households, which means many Aussies might be looking for ways to save on their Christmas shop.

It’s no secret that there are plenty of savings to be made by shopping online, but why not really make a difference by implementing the following tactics:

  • Explore cashback options - If you’re looking to get a little more out of your Christmas shopping, why not try free cashback platforms, like Shopback? Shopback gives you cash back for online purchases that can then be withdrawn and deposited into your bank account.
  • Never pay full price - Online shopping has really taken off in the last few years and so have the volume of coupons and discounts floating around. Free browser extensions, like Honey, automatically search the web for active coupons or discount codes and instantly apply them to your cart! 
  • Take advantage of upcoming sales - Black Friday and Cyber Monday are only days away, with some retailers already starting their sales. Play it smart and try to cross off items on your shopping list that are a part of the sales, you could save yourself a small fortune!
