I wrote how you could earn 5% to 15% back on every Amazon purchase by shopping through Giving Assistant, a shopping portal.

Via Frequent Miler, this deal will end soonGiving Assistant will no longer earn 5% cash back at Amazon, effective November 1, 2015.

But you still have 1 week to make the most of this deal!

I’ll show you ways to earn the most cash back, and share a new Amazon deal last-minute travelers might love!

What’s the Deal?

Giving Assistant is a shopping portal that pays cash back and donates to charity when you shop.  And folks have been earning 5% cash back for their Amazon purchases.

But Giving Assistant announced this cash back deal will end November 1, 2015.

Bummer, Indeed! Giving Assistant Let Folks Know the 5% Amazon Deal Is Ending

I thought it was gracious of the folks at Giving Assistant to give us a week’s notice!

There’s Still Time to Shop

Link:   Discover it

Link:   Chase Freedom

What makes this a terrific deal is it stacks with quarterly rotating bonus categories on cards like the Discover it and Chase Freedom.

Both cards earn 5% back (5X Chase Ultimate Rewards points with Chase Freedom) at Amazon (up to $1,500 in purchases) this quarter, until December 31, 2015!

If you use these cards to make your Amazon purchases through Giving Assistant (before November 1, 2015), you’ll earn 10% back!

It’s even sweeter if you’re a new Discover it cardholder (or registered previously).  Your cash back is doubled at the end of your 1st 12 billing cycles.

So you’ll earn 10% on Amazon purchases from Discover, and 5% from Giving Assistant, for a total of 15% back!

This might motivate a lot of folks to get their holiday shopping done early!

Note:   In order to receive 5% cash back from Giving Assistant, your purchase must be shipped and sold by Amazon.

New Amazon Prime Perk – Free Same Day Shipping!

You can use these deals to save money on an Amazon Prime subscription!  Both the Chase Freedom and Discover it cards earn 5% back on Amazon Prime memberships.

And it should trigger the 5% back from Giving Assistant, because it’s sold directly by Amazon.

I love my Amazon Prime membership!  And not just for the free 2-day shipping on items sold by Amazon.

With an Amazon Prime subscription (currently $99 per year), you’ll also get:
