Before you make your next online purchase, make sure you check out a website that promises to give you exclusive sales and cash back from some of the most popular retailers.

With Shoptivity, just shop the way you normally would - at close to 1,500 online retailers - and with just one click, you get some of your own money back!

"Basically you can get paid to shop online and all it is one click through our site to any store," said CEO Greg Gorra. "We credit your account with the money and we send you a check in a mail."

And Shoptivity has partnered up with retailers like Neiman Marcus and travel sites like Priceline and hotels.com.

"Some of the top earning: Nordstrom 6.5 percent, and then Shop Bop is 7 percent and up to 15 percent," said Gorra.

For those questioning where that cash is coming from, Gorra tells Action News it's all part of that partnership between Shoptivity and the retailers.

"Stores give us a commission when you shop through us and we share the commission with our users," he said.

Those checks go out every few months and for avid shoppers, they can add up!

"Anywhere from $50 to one person got $900 in 3 months," says Gorra.

You can even earn money back shopping locally.

"We work with Anthropology, Urban Outfiteers, Adele tickets at Wells Fargo Center," said Kit Beuman, business lead.

Shoptivity will also give you sale alerts on items, or even flights or hotels you have your eye on.

And without clicking a button, part of your sale also benefits charity.

"Right now we are giving 10 percent to Soles for Souls and donates shoes to 3rd world countries and create jobs," said Gorra.

Some other sites also offer cash back.

You can get up to 25 percent back on ebates.com, as well as offers for coupon codes and free shipping

And you can earn up to 40 percent back from FatWallet.com.

Finally, with Swagbucks, you can earn gift cards for shopping.
