Military families are looking for more ways to save on everyday purchases, and USAA has an easy-to-use solution for all of your online purchases. From travel purchases to groceries, the USAA MemberShop® makes getting cash back a breeze.
Cash back is a form of rebate, which is considered tax free income. MemberShop® cash back savings arrive in the form of a check once your cash balance is $10 or more at the end of each quarter. USAA will send you a check for that amount within 45 days.
USAA Cash Back Credit Cards (an added benefit)
USAA cash back credit cards include the Cashback Rewards Plus American Express® Credit Card and the Preferred Cash Rewards Visa Signature® Credit Card. Our favorite for most cardholders is the Preferred Cash Rewards Visa Signature® Credit Card, which comes with unlimited 1.5% cash back on purchases. It’s simple, straightforward, and cardholders won’t have to juggle around multiple cards trying to maximize their rewards by category.
You are not limited by using a USAA cash back card. You can use a current card or shop for a cash back credit card that fits your spending habits if you need one.
The benefit of using a cash back card is simply earning more back on your purchases.
If you don’t have a cash back card, that’s perfectly fine. You can shop with your debit card as well (although we recommend using a credit card for added security and additional cash back). The perks from MemberShop® come from simply having a profile on USAA.com.
How to Get Started with MemberShop®
USAA members have two ways to shop for discounts (in the form of cash back):
