Capital One Shopping is a shopping rewards portal that works via a web browser plugin, while also looking for eligible coupons and lower prices from different sellers. When you shop through an eligible merchant, you earn cashback rewards. Right now until 12/1, if you sign up via a referral link, you can earn a $50 bonus after spending just $10 on qualifying purchases. That’s mine, thanks if you use it! You can then refer your spouse or friends as well.

Eligible merchants include Walmart, eBay,, Chewy, Dell, Kohl’s, Safeway, Sam’s Club, Snapfish, YETI, and Zappos.

Installation was quick and I just bought a $10 used book off of eBay to trigger the bonus, easy enough. Note that the bonus must be redeemed as a gift card. I also redeemed my bonus as an eBay gift card (and have already spent it…)

Note: You do not need to be a Capital One customer of any kind to use Capital One Shopping.

More about Capital One Shopping:

Capital One Shopping finds better offers from other sellers while you browse Amazon products or when you search on Capital One Shopping directly. If the product has selectable options like size and color, Capital One Shopping will start working as soon as you pick your options. If your product doesn’t have any options, Capital One Shopping will start working immediately. When there are savings, Capital One Shopping will display the lowest priced match within 10-15 seconds.

More on the referral bonus:

* To qualify for a referral sign up bonus, your refer-ee must be a new Capital One Shopping user, sign up and install the Capital One Shopping desktop computer or mobile browser extension via your referral link, and make Qualifying Purchase(s) totaling $10 within 30 days of signing up. A Qualifying Purchase means a purchase via Capital One Shopping that earns Capital One Shopping Rewards. By participating in the referral program, you are telling your refer-ee that you’re a Capital One Shopping customer. Bonuses will be automatically applied to your account and your refer-ee’s account within 30 days after satisfying these requirements, but issuance may be delayed during the determination of whether a Qualifying Purchase has been made by a new user. You may only earn up to $300 in referral bonuses per referral period. Bonuses will be awarded as Capital One Shopping Rewards, and are subject to the Capital One Shopping Terms of Service.

The plugin hasn’t been overly intrusive so far, and mostly just looks at where you are shopping and automatically applies whatever coupon codes it has in its database at the checkout. Otherwise, it shows you other merchants selling the same item. You can uninstall the plugin after getting the bonus and cashing out if you wish.

Notably, I actually choose to keep this plugin installed on a voluntary basis (on one of my browsers). I have saved anywhere from 25 cents to $20 extra with no effort.
