RebateMango: Shop online and earn KrisFlyer miles, Asia Miles, UPGREAT points (and more)

Make online shopping more rewarding through RebateMango, plus get 1,000 bonus KrisFlyer miles with your first purchase.
The following is a sponsored post by RebateMango. The opinions and analysis remain that of The Milelion

If you’re looking to earn rebates on online shopping, you typically have two options: a cashback site, or an airline miles shopping portal. But what if there were a way to earn both, and more?

That’s RebateMango’s pitch: an online shopping platform that lets you earn not just plain vanilla cashback, but miles and points with eight different loyalty programs. 

RebateMango is now available in Singapore, Malaysia, and Thailand, and has more than 500 merchants, including Qoo10, Shopee, Lazada, AliExpress, iHerb, ZALORA, Agoda, Hotels.com, and Deliveroo. 

Customers can earn points with frequent flyer programs like KrisFlyer and Asia Miles, as well as unique partners like UPGREAT and GrabRewards (the only opportunity to earn them outside the Grab platform). The full list of partners can be found below:

Regardless of which program you fancy, Milelion readers who sign up through the link below will get 1,000 KrisFlyer miles with their first RebateMango transaction of any amount.

Let’s take a closer look at the rewards on offer, and how RebateMango measures up to the competition. 

Cashback

Even though RebateMango is much more than just cashback, it still offers very competitive rates in this area. Here’s how cashback rates on RebateMango compare to ShopBack:

 Earning cashback
8%6%
Up to 8%Up to 7%
5%5%
5%Up to 4%
Up to 12%Up to 10%
Up to 8%Up to 6%

Up to 5%Up to 3.5%
Up to 13%Up to 10%
Up to 3%Up to 2%
Up to 10%Up to 8%
3%Up to 9%
Comparison accurate as of 23/09/19. Always refer to websites for latest figures.

As the table above shows, cashback rates on RebateMango are very competitive with ShopBack. Cashback sites hold frequent sales, so it’s always best practice to comparison shop beforehand. 

Singapore Airlines KrisFlyer Miles

But of course, the whole value proposition of RebateMango goes beyond just cashback. Customers can also choose to earn KrisFlyer miles, simply by clicking on the drop down menu at the top of the page. 

Once you’ve changed your preferred reward, reload the page and the earning rates will automatically be updated. 

RebateMango offers a hybrid of KrisFlyer miles and cashback, and earning rates are expressed in miles per US$10 (just like KrisFlyer Spree). 

How are KrisFlyer miles awarded and pro-rated?
Your transaction will first be converted in to USD. Miles will then be pro-rated accordingly and rounded down to the nearest whole number. For example, if I spend US$14 at a merchant offering 7 miles/US$10, I will get 7/10*14=9.8 miles (rounded down to 9 miles)

I realise that may not be terribly intuitive for most people, so I’ve taken the liberty of converting it into a more familiar metric- miles per S$1, based on a rate of US$10= S$13.90. 

Here’s how KrisFlyer earning rates on RebateMango compare to KrisFlyer Spree:

 Earning cashback + KrisFlyer Miles
4% + 0.9 mpdN/A
Up to 4% + 0.9 mpdUp to 1.5 mpd
2.5% + 0.5 mpd1.4 mpd
Up to 2.5% + 0.5 mpd2.0 mpd
Up to 6%+ 1.3 mpdN/A
Up to 4% + 0.9 mpd2.2 mpd (hotel bookings only)
1.1% + 0.2 mpdN/A
2.5% + 0.5 mpd0.8 mpd
3% + 0.6 mpd1.9 mpd
2.5% + 0.5 mpd1.4 mpd
Up to 2.5% + 0.5 mpdUp to 1.4 mpd
Up to 6.5% + 1.4 mpdN/A
Up to 1.5% + 0.3 mpdN/A
Up to 5% + 1.1 mpdN/A
1.5% + 0.3 mpdN/A
Comparison accurate as of 23/09/19. Refer to websites for latest figures.

Even before adjusting for a like-to-like comparison, we can already see that the merchant selection on RebateMango is significantly wider than KrisFlyer Spree. Indeed, one of the issues that KrisFlyer Spree users face is the lack of localized options- major retailers like FairpriceOn, Lazada, Qoo10, and Shopee aren’t available for Singapore-based customers. 

If we assign a value of 1.8 cents per KrisFlyer mile, then the overall return through RebateMango is typically as good, if not better than KrisFlyer Spree.

Just like KrisFlyer Spree, miles earned through RebateMango will be deposited directly into your KrisFlyer account with no conversion fees. 

UPGREAT Points

However, if it’s KrisFlyer miles you really want to earn, then my advice is that you select UPGREAT points instead, which allows you to earn even more KrisFlyer miles. 

UPGREAT is Great Eastern’s new loyalty platform. UPGREAT points can be earned by completing wellness challenges, but you don’t need to be a Great Eastern customer to open an account or earn points. That’s a good thing, because UPGREAT and RebateMango are quite possibly the best combination to earn KrisFlyer miles online. 

How does that work? Look at the redemption chart below. Note that 1,000 UPGREAT Points= 330 KrisFlyer miles.

So when you pick UPGREAT points on RebateMango, you’re effectively earning the following rates:

 Earning UPGREAT Points, converted to KrisFlyer miles
2.6 mpdN/A
Up to 2.6 mpdUp to 1.5 mpd
1.7 mpd1.4 mpd
Up to 1.7 mpd2.0 mpd
Up to 4.0 mpdN/A
Up to 2.6 mpd2.2 mpd (hotel bookings only)
0.7 mpdN/A

2.0 mpd1.9 mpd
1.7 mpd1.4 mpd
Up to 1.7 mpdUp to 1.4 mpd
Up to 4.3 mpdN/A
Up to 1 mpdN/A
Up to 3.3 mpdN/A
1 mpdN/A
Comparison accurate as of 23/09/19. Refer to websites for latest figures.

UPGREAT points can be converted to KrisFlyer miles for free, and each transfer takes approximately 5-7 working days. 

Cathay Pacific Asia Miles

If you prefer flying with oneworld over Star Alliance, you’ll be pleased to know that Asia Miles can also be earned through RebateMango. Although Asia Miles imposes fuel surcharges on redemptions, there are still some very good sweet spots to look at, such as the multi-carrier award chart. 

Asia Miles has its own version of KrisFlyer Spree called iShop, and here’s how it compares to RebateMango. Both iShop and RebateMango express earn rates in terms of miles per USD. 

 Earning Asia Miles
4 mpdN/A
Up to 4 mpdUp to 2.75 mpd
2.5 mpd*2.5 mpd
2.5 mpd*3.75 mpd

Up to 6 mpdN/A
Up to 1 mpdN/A
Up to 5 mpdN/A
1 mpd3.0 mpd
Comparison accurate as of 23/09/19. Refer to websites for latest figures. *RebateMango’s website does not show .5 intervals for Asia Miles, so the figure displayed will be rounded down to 2 mpd. In practice, however, customers will receive 2.5 mpd 

The story is quite similar to KrisFlyer Spree- RebateMango has a wider selection, and with the exception of ZALORA and Book Depository, better earning rates. 

Final points to note

Shopping through RebateMango works just like shopping through any other cashback portal where you click through to the merchant and make payment on the merchant’s site. This means that you’ll be able to double dip on your credit card rewards points as well.

Be sure to use the following cards for the highest returns on your spending:

  • Citi Rewards Visa/ Citi Rewards Mastercard: 4 mpd, capped at S$1K per month. Excludes travel expenditure
  • DBS Woman’s World Card: 4 mpd, capped at S$2K per month
  • OCBC Titanium Rewards: 4 mpd, capped  at S$12K per year, for selected online merchants
  • OCBC 90N Card ( if transaction is in foreign currency): 4 mpd, no cap

Bookings made from clicking through the RebateMango site will also be eligible to earn the usual elite status credit and points, provided you book through a hotel’s official channel. For example, you could access Marriott.com via RebateMango, and earn Marriott Bonvoy points and elite status credit on your stays. 

Conclusion

RebateMango offers additional opportunities to earn rewards on online shopping, and is definitely something you should check out. It’s especially useful for earning KrisFlyer miles, particularly if you choose UPGREAT points as your rewards option. 

Once again, remember that new RebateMango customers can earn 1,000 bonus KrisFlyer miles with their first transaction of any amount- sign up with the link below to get your bonus!

Tried Rebate Mango before but the KF miles I was supposed to earn never posted, And my attempts to get resolution were just ignored. I would be interested to know if the situation has improved.

Noted. But it shouldn’t be that we have to ask for miles to be credited. This should be AUTOMATIC.

For what it’s worth I encounter the same delayed crediting issues with kf spree (especially on iherb). It’s annoying but sometimes it’s because the merchants simply don’t confirm the transaction until very late. Waited 5+ months for iherb to credit kf miles

Hi ithh,

Yes, it should be automatic and I would like to look into this further for you. As per Jon88’s reply, it could be a retailer that has not confirmed the transaction due to refund policies or their reconciliation process.

Do reach out to us and we’ll check this for you.

LOL to all the responses citing non-tracking and non-responses… I encountered the same thing too.
Transaction doesn’t track, I send an email to the support team, ZILCH response too. I have already written off the rebate, so please, Rebate Mango do not ask me email you the details again..

What’s the point of having higher rebates when they don’t even track properly? Just stick to Shopback, have already received thousands of rebates, though some txn takes time to liaise with the support team. hey, at least the support team replies promptly.

That’s uncalled for, from my experiences the IT administrating the comments section can be a little wonky at times but I’ve been following this thread n I’m seeing your comment just fine
I wonder what u think makes your comment so special he had to delete it
That said, why didn’t Aaron delete those other bad comments too if what you’re accusing him of is true
U seem full of hot air, pls blow that off elsewhere ty

Just to avoid any confusion. My reply was referring to posts which have been deleted. There were half a dozen glowing testimonials to RM which appeared and then were removed. I guess my suspicion was correct and they were astroturfing (a fake grass roots campaign). BTW AA you need to refresh this site each time as it no longer seems to update automatically unless manually refreshed.

Guess my experience is different from those posted here. RebateMango works really well for me so far. All my transactions are tracked with no issues, although I know some merchants take a longer time to credit my spending. It does show up eventually and since I’m in no hurry to cash out, I just let the points accumulate. Been using them for all my travel bookings and for daily expenditure as well.

Just signed up and made a purchase at book depository, Let’s see if the transaction is tracked and 1k KF miles earned. finger crossed.

Trying RebateMango out. Made my first transaction couple of days ago on iHerb which has not been tracked yet. Shopback usually tracks in less than 24 hours. So there’s that. Not expecting it to be tracked, let alone get the 1000 KF miles.

Updating for the benefit of others. Forget RebateMango. Unreliable both customer service and tracking wise. I’ve had a total of 3 transactions now, only 1 was tracked. I can now say with 99.999% certainty that I will not get the 1k miles from the iHerb purchase. Sent them proof of purchase then they said would investigate, crickets after. That was more than 10 days ago. Sent follow up email a few days ago, no reply. Email probably got lost in cyberspace blackhole.

Do yourselves a favor, stick to Shopback. 100x more reliable in my 2+ years with them so far.

Like many here, i had a really bad experience with rebate mango. Emailed their support over transaction that never posted and they had the audacity to tell me to wait 90 days for them to investigate! I urge everyone to save yourselves the agony and use krisshopspree or shopback instead. If you must, just collect the 1000 KF miles and forget about using rebatemango ever again.

I signed up for RebateMango on 23rd September after this article was publish.

I bought an item off Klook the same day.

I have had no tracking acknowledgment from the app or by email. Today is the 27th September.

I have emailed [email protected] with screenshots of my dashboard and items I bought.

I haven’t heard back yet

Rebate Mango website and app is so bad compare to ShopBack. If you use ShopBack in Google Chrome you can install a plug-in and it will ensure you to get your cashback tracked. My cashback usually reflected within 1 hour. Even RB have higher cash back rate, still not worth the hassle and risk to use it.

If the N90 card promo is based on credit card spend and is through the bank, yes it can be stacked.

Happen to passby this website after go ogling for comments on this RebateMango. I do not know whether I should be happy that I am not alone. Totally regretted. I can only say to RebateMango that you should not give promises that you couldn’t deliver. Decided to give it a try and purchased sq tickets via their channel. Website mentioned that the cashback will be reflected within 72 hours. Still zero after a week. Promised to respond to my query within 24 hours, still zero responses after 5 days, despite sending reminder emails asking for update. To those who thought… Read more »
