Cashback really is a no-brainer! You go about your usual shopping either through a cashback website or by paying with a cashback card and then you get a % of the money you spend back! I’ve saved £100’s by claiming cashback every time I shop online! Cashback is a great way to save money on items that you’re going to buy – don’t let this encourage you to buy things you don’t really want or need just to chase cashback!
TopCashback is a cashback site that allows you to earn money whenever you shop online. Retailers pay TopCashback commission for referring you to their website & then they pass this commission back to you as ‘cashback’.
To start earning cashback all you need to do is shop online through the TopCashback website. Rewarding you with your cashback can take between a few hours to a few months (depending on the retailer). Once you’ve earned a decent amount of money you can order gift vouchers such as Amazon, Love2Shop & Currys… or get the money transferred straight into your bank account.
Quidco is very similar to TopCashback… but I’ve found it to be an advantage I’v that I can compare cashback offers across the 2 sites. I’m becoming increasingly impressed with Quidco, their customer service are super helpful & friendly! I’ve also noticed that they often have bonus cashback offers (e.g. £2.50 cashback on a £5 spend!).
I’ve only had Quidco for a few months and I’ve managed to earn £25 so far, its getting involved with Quidco even if it’s for the bonus offers that they do semi-regular.
The Shopmium App
Claiming your Shopmium freebies is simple, first download the Shopmium app, buy the item you want, scan the barcode of your item & upload a picture of your receipt. Shopmium will then refund the money back into your PayPal account (usually refunded within 24 hours)! If you combine this with a range of supermarket loyalty cards & offers, you can actually earn money for buying products!
I make sure to check this app every time I go shopping & I’ve managed to claimed over £70 worth of free shopping so far through Shopmium! All that you’re required to do in exchange for your freebies is to write a (very) short review of the item.

When you make a purchase through Boom25 you have a 1 in 25 chance of winning back ALL of the money you spent! Every 25th approved purchase via Boom25 is refunded, not with points or vouchers, but with cash paid directly into your PayPal account!
I’ve already earned over £20 and I’ve only used in a couple of times! Feeling lucky? See if you can win a free takeaway… or even a holiday!
Curve On-Card Cashback
When you pay with a Curve Card you’ll earn 1% cashback at your favourite retailers. If you have an existing card that rewards you (such as a Santander All in One or TSB Platinum Purchase credit card) you can still earn these rewards while using Curve.
You’ll also get a free £5 credit when you first sign up with promo code J7NOW.
Disclaimer: the idea with cashback is that you’ll get a percentage of your money back after purchasing something – don’t let this encourage you to buy things you don’t really want or need just to chase cashback! Cashback is considered a discount from the retailer and thus, it should not need to be declared as income.
