Cashback websites are a great way to make easy money. If you’re shopping online, all you need to do is go via a cashback site to earn money back from your purchases.
There are two main sites for this, Quidco and TopCashback. The way these sites work, you search the site for the retailer you want to visit and click on the link through their site. They redirect you and track your spending so they can then credit your account with cashback. Each retailer offers different rates of money back. It only takes seconds to go through one of these sites and if you do it for all your online purchases, your cashback will soon add up.
Once your purchases have been tracked, the cashback will show in your account, It can take a few weeks for this to process so it isn’t a quick earner but once processed you can withdraw the money to your account.
Both Quidco and TopCashback sites are free to use if you stick to the basic membership. They both offer premium memberships but these require payment and aren’t needed to make use of the benefits.
Make sure you read the small print before you make purchases. Although the cashback is a great bonus, it isn’t always guaranteed. There are terms and conditions you need to follow to receive the money.
More ways to earn
It’s not just your online shopping you can do via these sites. You can also renew your car insurance, home insurance, change your energy suppliers. There are often quite good rates of interest for these which helps make the purchase a lot cheaper. I recently renewed my car insurance and received £28 cashback just by going through Quidco.
You can also add a debit or credit card to your accounts on both Quidco and TopCashback, So if you use your card in certain high street shops, you will receive cashback on these purchases as well as online.
