Earlier this year, we wrote about online cashback site Ebates, which partners with various retailers in Singapore and around the world to reward shoppers for shopping. And it seems they’ve made great strides since then, as they’ve recently gotten on board 12 new merchants.

The 12 merchants are pretty big names in their relative industries; you might have heard of them:

  1. Zalora
  2. Groupon Singapore
  3. Rakuten
  4. Foodpanda
  5. Redmart
  6. Luxola
  7. honestbee
  8. Muji
  9. SmartBuyGlasses
  10. Deal.com.sg
  11. Expedia Singapore
  12. Zuji

To celebrate this new development, Ebates is throwing a party of sorts in the way they know best: by bringing even more benefits to their users. And this will be done via an island-wide university campaign called the Battle of the Carts.


How To Participate

If you’re from any of these universities — NUS NTU, SMU, SUTD, SIT or SIM — then you’re eligible to take part. But it’s not enough if you sign up alone; your university has to be entered into the race as well. And this is how to do it:

  1. Go to the campaign page www.ebates.sg/battleofthecarts
  2. Select the university you are from
  3. Get as many of your friends to sign up as you can

The university with the most number of sign ups between now and November 15 will get a dessert table delivered straight to their campus on the first week of school in January next year. Students from the school will also get an additional cash back bonus of 2% when they shop via Ebates subsequently.

According to David Teng, General Manager of Ebates Singapore, “We know how stressed students get in the process of managing their studies and we thought it would be a great way for us to help them relieve stress and enjoy a friendly inter-school rivalry.”

What can we say, Ebates really does seem to know their way to a university student’s heart.
