Free bitcoin cashback with online purchases, via Stekking.com

With Stekking.com you can receive a small part of the purchase amount back in bitcoin for free when purchasing online. This way you can easily save small bits of bitcoin without incurring extra costs. It works at more than 10,000 webshops in the Netherlands and abroad, including some of the largest and most popular.

Have you bought anything online in the past year? Then there is a good chance that you could have received part of your money back in bitcoin for free. Stekking.com introduced the concept of bitcoin cashbacks in the Netherlands last year.

With a cashback you get back a small percentage of the money you spend. The concept has been around for years and is especially popular in America, for example with credit card companies. If you pay with a credit card at an affiliated retailer in such cases, you will be refunded part of the purchase amount.

Cashbacks are basically win-win situations. For the affiliated retailers it generates more customers, the facilitating company earns a little from it and for the customers it is a kind of discount.

Cash back in bitcoin

Stekking.com works about the same, only you will not receive the money back in euros but in bitcoin. This way you can easily save small bits of bitcoin without it costing you anything extra. Stacking satoshis , as it is called. Or flat Dutch: cuttings . Hence the name.

You will only get a small amount back. Usually about one to three percent, but sometimes a little more. So it won’t make you rich. Yet it piles up over time, because Stekking can be used at more than 10,000 affiliated webshops in the Netherlands and abroad. If you ever make online purchases, there is a good chance that you have already done so at an affiliated webshop.

More than 10,000 affiliated webshops

Among the affiliated retailers you will find several large and popular webshops: Aliexpress, Alternate, Bever, Bon Prix, Booking.com, de Bijenkorf, eBay, Hema, ICI Paris XL, Jumbo, Mediamarkt and Thuisbezorgd – just to name a few .

The list of affiliated retailers on the Stekking.com website is impressive to say the least and actually too long to browse.

That is why Stekking has a handy browser extension for Chrome/Brave and Firefox. This alerts you when you visit a website of a connected webshop. A pop-up screen will appear with a button that you can click to activate the cashback.

You can also use Stekking without the browser extension, but then you have to keep an eye on which webshops are connected and activate the cashback manually via the website.

How?

You need an account to use Stekking. All you have to do is provide an email address and a home country. Then you install the browser extension and you are ready to use the cashback.

When you then buy something from a connected webshop, click on the button on the pop-up screen and pay as you are used to. If everything goes well, the cashback will automatically appear in your account on the Stekking.com website. Usually this happens quite quickly, but sometimes it takes a few days.

Because it usually involves small amounts, the cashback is registered in satoshis ( sats ), the smallest amount of bitcoin (1 satoshi = 0.00000001 BTC).

Lightning Network

The sats will accumulate in your account until you decide to withdraw them to your own wallet. You choose when you make a withdrawal and there are no minimum amounts.

Recordings are sent over the Lightning Network. You will therefore receive the sats almost immediately and there are hardly any costs involved. Thanks to LNURL-pay it works very easily and you just have to scan the QR code on the screen. You do need a wallet application that supports LNURL-pay, such as BlueWallet or Breez. We recommend installing both of them, as transaction fees sometimes differ.

Privacy & security

Stekking is free, but you do sacrifice a little bit on privacy. After all, Stekking can see where, when and for how much money you bought something. The browser extension also checks every time you visit a website to see if one is from an affiliated retailer. In principle, Stekking does not see other information such as the details of your order, your personal identity, your address and your bank account number.

The browser extension is unfortunately not (yet?) open source. So the code cannot be checked. So if you use the browser extension, there is a little bit of trust involved. If you are concerned about this, you can manually switch the extension on and off or you can use multiple browsers.

Beta & Relaunch

Stekking.com is currently still in a beta phase and the system is still under development. Usually it works fine, but not always. For example, during our tests it was not possible to activate the cashback at Thuisbezorgd. That seems to happen more often, Stekking said. We did not experience any problems with other webshops.

Earlier this year, Stekking teamed up with Satsback.com, another bitcoin cashback platform. Together they want to serve the entire European market. After the end of the beta, Stekking will therefore continue under the brand name Satsback.com. That is scheduled to happen sometime in the coming months.
