CashKaroa��s new feature for the city sees tie-ups with over 100 restaurants
Over 500 e-commerce partners, five lakh members and an Alexa rank of 377 (the highest in the country among cashback sites) speak volumes of CashKaroa��s success. And this is in the face of competition like Baggout, Pennyful and GoPaisa. Now the cashback and coupons site has something special planned for Chennaia��a section on city restaurants and their deals (much like Burrp and Foodpanda). Co-founder, Swati Bhargava, has over 100 restaurants on her radar currently. a�?Names like Kobe Sizzlers, Hola and Keys Cafe are already on our confirmed list,a�? she says, assuring that more are being signed on. The offers by restaurants will be incorporated into their website in the next two monthsa��and they already have 85,000 people registered.
The site, which was launched in 2013 (ita��s the Indian offshoot of the UK-based Pouring Pounds, which was started by Bhargava and her husband, Rohan, in 2011), recently made several new collaborations, tooa��like PayTm, MobiKwik, HealthKart and American Swan. So browse CashKaro for offers, discounts, vouchers and cashback offers from the different brands and e-retailers. a�?When someone shops on our website, part of the commission we receive from the brands and retailers go back to the customer in the form of cashback,a�? she explains, giving an example of a pair of boots, worth Rs 2,000, that she recently purchased from American Swan. Not only did she get it at a discount of 50 per cent, but also got a cashback of 60 per cent from CashKaro, thus saving Rs 1,600 in the process. a�?Cashback payment can take up to 10 weeks, since retailers take that long to pay us the commission,a�? she warns, adding that customers can request for payment through bank transfer (NEFT) or cheque. While the websitea��s primary service is available across the country, restaurant deals are only available in Delhi and Mumbai, with Chennai being the next.
