This month’s Double Cash Back + Double Giving event—our very first!—is in honor of National Breast Cancer Awareness Month, recognized in October. Now through October 4, top brands are offering double cash back to Giving Assistant shoppers. Share your extra cash back with your favorite breast cancer research organization, or with another cause that’s important to you.
1 in 8. These are the odds that you, or a woman you know, will be diagnosed with breast cancer in your lifetime. An even bigger number to digest? 3 million. That’s the number of breast cancer survivors living in the United States today, thanks in part to the dozens of nonprofit and charitable organizations working tirelessly to raise awareness and support for vital cancer research initiatives.
Now until October 4 top retailers are doubling Giving Assistant shoppers’ cash back, so you can give twice as much to your favorite causes. Use these Double Cash Back + Double Giving days to double your donations to the charity you’ve already selected in your dashboard, or participate in National Breast Cancer Awareness Month by giving to your favorite breast cancer research fund instead.
Some 501(c)(3) organizations dedicated to breast cancer awareness and research include:
- Breast Cancer Research Foundation of Alabama
- Mothers Supporting Daughters With Breast Cancer
- Virginia Breast Cancer Foundation

What does Double Cash Back, Double Giving mean?
Exactly what it sounds like! Your cash back earnings are doubled while shopping at participating brands, which results into your donations doubling.
Can you give me an example?
Sure! Below is a “normal week” versus a Double Cash Back week.
Let’s say you’ve set your account to donate 50% of your cash back earnings to Action for Animals.
Normal Week: You spend $100 online at Forever21 and earn 5% cash back. That means you’ve earned $5 total. Since you’ve chosen to share 50% of that with Action for Animals, they will receive $2.50 on your behalf, and you get to keep $2.50.
Double Cash Back, Double Giving Week: You spend $100 online at Forever21 and earn 10% cash back. That means you’ve earned $10 total. Since you’ve chosen to share 50% of that with Action for Animals, they will receive $5 on your behalf, and you get to keep $5. In other words: double the love and double the cha-ching!
Which brands can I shop at to double my cash back and donations?

Summer is winding down, but that doesn’t mean your future travels have to! If you’re looking for a more affordable way to travel the world, then you’ve landed in the right spot. When you take advantage of the Hotels.com Passport Discount Coupon, you can travel anytime between now and the end of 2017 with a discount worth $110 and earn up to 7% cash back savings from Giving Assistant.
Why $110? Hotels.com is giving back the price of a passport to encourage more Americans to apply for their passports and travel internationally!
It’s simple to use. When you book your hotel with a price tag of at least $800, type in the coupon code Passport2017 at checkout and you’ll receive $110 off your booking price. And voila! You’ll be one step closer to your dream vacation. Toss the “I still need to apply for my passport” excuse out the window and check out these top destination hotel deals below.
7 Nights at 7 Top Destination Hotels
The following are seven hotel booking examples for seven nights, yet the Passport Discount Coupon works for other hotel options and it can be for 1 to 28 nights as long as the price tag hits at least $800. Please note that the prices mentioned are after the Passport Discount Coupon is used.
- Royal Hotel, Paris, France. Just $716 for 7 nights at this four-star hotel on the famed Champs Elysee in Paris. Enjoy the charm of this hotel within sight of the Arche de Triomph and feel like you’re staying with friends in a private home.
- Urban Lodge Hotel, Amsterdam. $667 for 7 nights in the hotel billed as the place for Urban Cowboys. Located in Sloterdijk Station portion of Amsterdam, Urban Lodge mixes city and country life with spacious guest rooms and restaurants serving a variety of Dutch foods.
- Abbey Court, Notting Hill, London, England. $723 for 7 nights in this Victorian Villa first built in 1860 as a private residence. You will be at the center of it all in central London near Notting Hill and Paddington Station. The very best place for the big city experience, whether you travel on business or pleasure.
- Artist Hotel, BnA Koenji, Tokyo, Japan. $674 for 7 nights at the hotel that connects you to the art world for “a creative cultural experience” where an individual artist designed each room. If you love art, you will never forget lodging in a work of art while you support local artists.
- Retrome, Barcelona, Spain. $896 for 7 nights at this hotel with a lobby decorated in art nouveau. Just a short walk to the beach from this home away from home and yet you will have all the advantages of a big city. You will enjoy the five-minute walk to shopping in Passeig de Gràcia and ten minutes to Plaça Catalunya (the busiest square in Barcelona) and the Sagrada Familia Basilica.
- City Garden Hotel, Hong Kong. $653 for 7 nights, this hotel offers special deals on traditional Chinese wedding ceremonies that care of everything for you.

- Kingswood Hotel, Dublin, Ireland. $821 for 7 nights at Dublin’s newest four-star hotel, formerly the Maldron Citywest Hotel. Just 9km from Dublin’s city center Kingswood has large rooms with modern appointments. McGettigan’s Cook House & Bar handles large events with special wedding menus, BBQ events, and locally grown meats/fish and produce. If you would rather just relax in the bar, you’ll enjoy the surround sound music as well as the modern setting.
And remember, on top of Hotels.com Passport Discount Coupon that’s worth $110, you can also take advantage of Giving Assistant’s cash back and earn up to 7%.
Caveats: These prices are only good if you use the passport coupon offer, book before August 31, and travel before the end of 2017. The $110 discount only applies to the first room in the booking. You will pay the full price for the rest of the rooms. The coupon will activate whether you own a passport or not.
Hotels participating in this promotion are Price Guarantee Hotels. The Passport Coupon is only good for your first five bookings and the coupon terminates after 2,000 bookings by all customers. There is a limit of one coupon per booking. The discount does not apply to taxes, fees, or additional costs of your stay. One more thing: you must pay for all bookings at the time you reserve the rooms.
The ultimate mission for Giving Assistant has always been to do good, give back, and be better.
Not just for the sake of looking good…
…but to genuinely make a positive impact in the world.
Yet, writing an earnest mission and slapping it on our website wasn’t enough, we knew that our growing company eventually needed to be held accountable for what means the most to our team. This is why we are proud to finally announce that Giving Assistant is officially certified in the field of doing good!
Certified B Corporations, called B Corps for short, are companies that go through a rigorous certification that measures their impact on the environment, their employees, their customers, and their community. Little over 2,000 companies in the world today have successfully become B Corps, which makes the label one of the most prestigious ones out there. (Go us!)
But it wasn’t an overnight process. In fact, you could say that the journey began when we decided to launch a social enterprise; we had to spend years building a company that was even B Corp worthy. Take a look at the goals of B Corps, the process of becoming certified, and how Giving Assistant meets the requirements with excellence.

What B Corps Are All About
In one sentence, the B Corp title is “like Fair Trade certification but for the whole business, not just a bag of coffee.” This perfectly describes the community of B Corps across the globe–companies that treat the people and the world around them fairly, while at the same time remaining a profitable business. A few of B Corporations’ values are:
- Businesses should compete not only to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world.
- All business ought to be conducted as if people and places matter.
- World business leaders must realize that everyone is dependent on each other for the well-being of our global community and natural resources.
- A company’s products can and should benefit society in their production, practices, and profit.

How to Become a B Corp
As you can see from these goals, not just any business can become a B Corp. It takes a thorough vetting process to filter through unqualified organizations and find the ones that are truly making a difference. As their requirements state, the process is “rigorous but straightforward.”
The first part of the process is called the B Impact Assessment. This assessment measures a company’s positive impact and sustainability. Once this initial test is complete, businesses receive a detailed score report that shows their strengths and weaknesses. If their score is high enough, B Lab verifies their answers to make sure that they are accurate. And, if all goes well, a company is eligible to become a B Corp.
Even after getting certified, a company must demonstrate that they are still worthy of the title. Every two years, all companies must get re-approved through a concise version of the initial assessment. Additionally, 10% of companies are randomly selected for an extra check up each year. All of this goes to prove that being a B Corp is not only an honor, but also a responsibility.
In May of 2017, Giving Assistant passed the B Impact Assessment on the second try and went through all of the required steps to become a B Corp! The process was long and filled with both successes and failures. It took over a year for us, and we had to formalize many of our unwritten policies. But in the end, here’s how our scores stacked up against other companies that took the test.
- We scored 24 in the area of employee treatment, where the average applicant scores 18.
- Our governance earned us a score of 16, 10 points higher than the average.
- In the community category, our score of 22 beat the average score of 17.
Why Giving Assistant is a Perfect Fit
Not only did Giving Assistant become a B Corp, but we handily outdid many other companies in a variety of fields. If you think about it, it makes perfect sense that we did well on the exam. Recall that B Corps split up their impact into four categories:
1) Employee Impact
- We offer health benefits and stock options to 100% of our employees.
- We hold quarterly Fun Days and corporate volunteer activities.
- Every employee has the ability to work-from-home on Fridays.

2) Customer Impact
- Our services are an easy way for customers to save money.
- We offer benefits for shopping on a wide variety of stores, which lets every consumer get involved.
- We help people get more involved in their global community by making a positive impact when they shop.
3) Community Impact

- Through Giving Assistant, our users had the ability to donate over $250,000 to Zidisha, which has allowed them to fund over 9,000 microloans in developing countries.
- Our users have donated over $17,000 of funds to Camp Kesem, an organization that provides a summer camp for kids whose parents have cancer.
- Giving Assistant shoppers gave more than $15,000 to Pencils for Promise, allowing underdeveloped communities to build proper schools for their children.
4) Environmental Impact
- Our offices are located in a Platinum LEED certified skyscraper.
- We recently switched from paper checks to e-checks, drastically reducing our carbon footprint.
- Much of our donations go toward responsible nonprofits that are good stewards of the environment and natural resources.
Considering all that goes into becoming a B Corp, the Giving Assistant team is incredibly proud of our progress. It is an honor to be considered part of this elite group, and we work every day to keep up our positive impact and reach even more communities around the world. Thank you for being part of our success!
