What is Slide?

Slide is a free iOS & Android app that allows you to earn unlimited 4% cash back instantly whenever you use it to pay online or in-store through contactless checkout. Slide is created and backed by Raise Marketplace, a leading mobile payments company, and the world’s largest gift card marketplace.

How does it work?

When you use Slide to pay in-store or online, you are buying a gift card to the retailer you are shopping at for the exact amount you plan to spend at the store or restaurant. So before you begin using Slide you’ll need to add a payment method in order for the transactions to go through.

Additionally, if you want to get even more cash back, we recommend you prefund your account. This will make the processes even faster and give you an extra 1-2% in cash back on the amount you prefund.

What can I do with all the cash back I earned?

Choice 1: Use it towards your next purchase. 

When you are in the process of selecting a payment method, you have the option to apply cash back earned to the transaction. Depending on how much you’ve earned, your total purchase amount will be reduced by your available cash back balance. That means, if you have more cash back then what you are planning to purchase, your payment method on file won’t get charged.

Choice 2: Withdraw it.

Once you reach $15 in cash back, you’re able to withdraw your balance to your Venmo or PayPal account.

Lastly, don’t forget to download Slide! You can only earn cash back from Slide if you have it.
