A great way to earn cashback from your online purchases is to register with a Cashback website such as Quidco.com. Cashback websites enable you to earn money from your purchases. You pay a £5 joining fee for Quidco (which is taken out of your earnings so you don’t have to pay up front)but cashbackkings and topcashback are free to join and then you go to the retailer, bank, insurance company etc via the cashback site to earn your money as you shop. There are hundreds of merchants which are members and some are well known High Street Stores or Banks. HSBC is currently giving £40 cash back on car insurance and £50 on home, as well as for opening Bank Accounts with them. Some of the more well known retailers and the cashback they are giving are:- Tesco 7%, Argos 1.5%. Office Shoes 10%, Waterstones up to 8%, WH Smith 8%, 3 mobile up to £100, La Senza 12%, Dorothy Perkins 5%, Thomas Cook 10%, Goldsmiths 16%. You also get cash back from using the comparison sites mentioned in the right hand panel and in my previous post regarding Fuel Costs. For signing up to a deal via Moneysupermarket.com you get £20, Uswitch and Confused also offer cashback. So for example, you find a great deal via confused.com you will need to click on them via the Quidco website after you have become a member to get your cashback deal. You won’t earn anything if you are a Quidco member but click on confused.com without going via the Quidco site. When you have a spare half hour, browse through the Cashback sites to see what retailers they have on board and next time you need to send a bouquet of flowers, book a holiday with Thomas Cook, buy a face cream from Boots or get a gift from House of Fraser, remember to enter these sites via the Cashback site you have signed up to.
There are links to the cashback sites in the right hand panel.
