In March this year users of the goodie cashback programme, which allows money spent in several hundred online shops to be partly returned, made the record-high number of 180,000 transactions (close to five times more than in March 2019) with the total value of PLN 17.5 million. This means that almost PLN 600,000 will find their way back to goodie cashback users for purchases made in March alone. According to the “Zakupy 2020” (Shopping 2020) survey, 39% Polish internet users take advantage to some extent of cashback solutions.

- Today saving and smart shopping is more important than ever before. Many of us buy things mainly online and cashback is a very easy and convenient way to save during online purchases. Popularity of goodie cashback is growing strongly, the number of transactions covered by the programme in March this year was five times greater than in the same period of last year – Wojciech Grudzień, Chairman of Millennium Goodie, said.

Since the programme was launched in September 2018, goodie cashback users made more than 1,1 million transactions, spent close to PLN 120 million via goodie and received almost PLN 5 million cashback. Goodie cashback users are steadily raising their activeness, on average they make already more than six transactions a month.

Opinion surveys confirm that cashback saving is popular - 39% Polish internet users apply cashback solutions to some extent, with 12% of them doing it frequently (“Zakupy 2020” survey carried out for Millennium Goodie by PBS on a representative sample of Polish internet users in January this year). Eight out of ten users have a positive view of such solutions. They are more readily chosen by young people and persons living in bigger towns and cities. - Persons, who do not use cashback solutions, say the main reason usually is unawareness of such solutions or sources of such offerings. At this stage it thus seems to be crucial to build a popular awareness of the cashback service and the benefits associated with it - Magdalena Jackman, Survey Team Manager in PBS, said.

Saving during online purchases with goodie cashback is very simple. Just download the goodie app to your smartphone or visit the www.goodie.pl website, register with goodie, then select the service or product with the cashback sign, go to the particular store’s website using the link provided by goodie and finish the purchase. Within one working day from the purchase cashback will appear on the goodie account i.e. a refund of part of the money spent (from a few to even several dozen per cent of the amount paid for the purchases) with the status “Waiting”. The status will change to “Approved” after the shop has confirmed the transaction was OK. Having collected at least PLN 20, you can transfer it to any bank account in Poland. It is important to note that cashback may be combined with other rebates available on the goodie shopping platform, offered by internet stores covered by the programme and with special discounts specially prepared for goodie users.

The free goodie mobile app and the www.goodie.pl website are a convenient shopping adviser, which provides quick access to information about discounts, sales offers and promotions in traditional and online shops. With goodie cashback you can get a generous and fast refund of part of your shopping expenses in several hundred online shops and also set up loyalty cards of shopping centres and learn about best price deals. The app provides access to latest promo newsletters of retail chains and it allows convenient creation of shopping lists. It also allows voice-searching for products. With goodie saving money may be part-and-parcel of daily shopping.

The goodie platform Regulations are available on www.goodie.pl/regulamin. A description of how goodie cashback works can be found on www.goodie.pl/cashback.
