ShopBack Australia is the leading rewards and discovery platform in Australia. We help customers save money across a wide range of categories including financial services.
We provide offers on creditcards. We don’t cover every product available and you should read the relevant disclosure documents provided by the credit provider and consider whether the products featured on our platforms are appropriate for your needs. We won’t recommend that a particular credit product is suitable for you or appropriate for your requirements and objectives because we can’t know your specific circumstances.
By providing you with information we are not providing credit assistance or suggesting or assisting you to apply for, remain in, or increase your credit limit with a particular credit provider. If we refer you to a credit provider or provider of credit assistance you will be dealing directly with them and not with us.
If you have more questions about the products or their terms and conditions, or wonder whether a particular product will suit you, we recommend that you obtain professional advice.
