Do you think you know everything about saving money on? Maybe not. Recently, I discovered a couple of methods that are not widely known, both of which include repayment options. But I suspect that both of these benefits will expire (or at least decrease) soon, so if it's something you're itching to buy right now, take advantage of them quickly.

Get 10% cash back on Amazon devices
I'm a long-time fan of cash-back services like Dosh, Rakuten (formerly Ebates) and TopCashback, which I use all year long to get discounts on almost everything I buy.
Right now, TopCashback has a pretty good offer: 10% cash back on Amazon devices . This means products such as Echo smart speakers, Echo Show smart screens, Fire TV sticks, Fire tablets and Kindle e-readers. Many of these units were on sale last week, but are now back at regular prices. So here's your chance to get a discount again.
If you do not already have a TopCashback account, you must register for one. (It's free and requires a bit more than your name and email address.) Be sure to visit the Amazon TopCashback page and click on Get Cashback . It takes you to Amazon, where you shop normally. Shortly after you make your purchase, you should receive an email confirming that TopCashback has logged into it. (Important: Do not use an ad blocker during this process, otherwise your purchase cannot be logged .)
It is worth noting thatbut if you don't want to wait, this option will give you the best deals right now. I suspect that TopCashback and other reimbursement services will lower their discount rates when the big sales hit.
Pro tip: Using TopCashback (or any other cash-back service) does not interfere with the cash back you get from whatever credit card you use to make your purchases. Like, say, this:
Get up to 20% cash back from the Amazon Visa card
If you have the Amazon Prime Visa card, you know that it pays you 5% cash discount on all Amazon purchases. But for a limited time you can get up to 15% extra extra cash on top of that on selected items.
These cashback bumps are available for a variety of products, including Roku banners, Canon cameras, Samsung phones, musical instruments, furniture and more.
For example, the 2018 Roku Ultra is currently on sale for $ 86, but paying with Amazon visas will give you a total of 15% cash back – which lowers the final price around $ 73. Similarly, Wyze Cam Pan Security Camera, which is almost never sold, will lower, at a discount, to $ 31.72 from its usual $ 37.32 price.
Good stuff! I'm not sure how long these cash-back bonuses will last, so if you've got a hold of something, you should definitely consider pulling the trigger soon.
