FundShopping is the fundraising program of Rebates with Friends, a Cash Back program that pays back to you a percentage of the purchase price of items you buy online at your favorite stores. It raises funds for schools and groups because it not only pays cash back on the school’s purchases, but it pays the school a commission on the online purchases of their teachers, parents and friends.
Your school signs up for a free Rebates with Friends FundShopping membership. Your school is then given an Invitation Link to sign up teachers, parents and friends. Everyone who signs up becomes part of your school's FundShopping Cash Back Party and every time they shop through Rebates with Friends, they earn Cash Back and your school earns a Commission on their purchases. They all will receive an Invitation Link also, and everyone they invite will become part of your school's Cash Back Party and therefore their purchases will also earn a Commission for your school. Everyone, then, in your Cash Back Party who invites someone to join Rebates with Friends becomes part of your Cash Back Party and every time they shop you earn a Commission.
Simply put, the school signs up for their free Rebates with Friends FundShopping membership which they can use for making purchases of school supplies online and earn cash back on each purchase. The school then, using their Invitation Link, invites teachers, parents and friends to shop using the Rebates with Friends FundShopping site and earns a commission from each of their purchases. There are a couple of ways you can organize your fundraiser with FundShopping:
One Big Party - This plan is to simply invite shoppers to shop online to benefit your school. You can, with this plan, create competition between individuals to invite shoppers.
Multiple Parties - Use this plan to create teams that would compete against each other to invite shoppers.

Sign up for your FREE membership by completing the below form. The Shopper ID you choose on the next screen will be part of your Invitation Link so it should be short, distinctive and representative of your school. You will need to verify your email by clicking the link that will be emailed to you. You then can log in to your account and go to the MY ACCOUNT page to get your Invitation Links. You will notice there are two of them. One with your Shopper ID and the other with your member number. They both will work the same, so either can be used.
Go to the Rebates with Friends Contact Page, send us your Shopper ID and let us know that you want your school set up as a Fundraiser Account.
