Stay vigilant for the peculiar purple envelope on your windscreen!
According to Finder.com.au, research shows that Aussies waste a staggering $600 million per year on parking fines. That’s not very smart. In response, Cashrewards has turned
‘Parking Wardens’ into ‘Cash Re-wardens’ for the day, partnering with Joel Creasey to surprise drivers with free cash under the windscreen wipers of parked cars in Sydney.
Equipped with a high-vis vest, walkie talkie and notebook, Joel surprised the residents of Sydney by imitating everyone’s least favourite person for the day: the parking warden. Instead of fines, Joel handed out a total of $7,020 cash in fake ‘parking fines’ throughout the day. Instead of tickets, each envelope was filled with $270 in free cash money – the average amount that Cashrewards’ most engaged users earned last year just from shopping from their favourite brands.
Australian comedian and presenter, Joel Creasey said: “It’s been so much fun seeing people’s reactions. No one likes a parking fine. It’s such a waste. But to see their frowns turn upside down when they realise they’re getting free cash instead was both hilarious and heartwarming. I felt like a purple Father Christmas. Stop walking away from free money people! Say YAY to cashback with Cashrewards this Black Friday instead!”
Cashrewards Chief Marketing Officer, Nicole Bardsley said: “We wanted to surprise people ahead of Black Friday and show the joy cashback can bring. Parking fines are one of the silliest ways to spend your hard-earned cash – especially with the current cost of living pressures. Earning cashback whilst you shop is so much smarter and ridiculously easy. By shopping through Cashrewards this festive season, people can make their household Christmas budgets go so much further”.
Last year, in November 2022, Cashrewards proved that ‘free cash wasn’t too good to be true’, by running a social experiment, turning billboards into ‘Bills-boards’ covered in $5000 worth of $5 notes, to see if people would take the free money – see here. That same year, Cashrewards members earned over $3.4 million in cashback over Black Friday and Cyber Weekend.
Even more money is expected to be given back this year with retailers offering up to 30% cashback on top of sales and discounts. Aussies can shop top brands like Apple, BWS, Petbarn, Big W, H&M, Glue Store, Booking.com and more, with boosted cashback.
