PayPal Cashback

Earns: Cash Back

GigaTake:

2% is basically as high as it gets for a cash back card. You’ll have to have a PayPal account to receive your cash back, but that’s a small inconvenience for a high rate. This is one of the best cash back cards going.

Here’s how much you would earn with this card

(Based on spending from {{earliestTransactionDate | date}} through {{latestTransactionDate | date}})

You could earn Worth Plus Welcome Bonus Total
{{totalPointsYouCouldEarn | number}} Cash Back
per year
${{totalPointsYouCouldEarnValue | number}} {{welcomeBonus | number}} points
worth ${{welcomeBonusValue | number}}
${{totalValueToUser | number}}
