How I made £350 with TopCashback

Published by Bee Money Savvy on

I can’t remember when I started using TopCashback, but I know that it’s been in my money saving arsenal since I started online shopping. It really is the easiest way to get money for nothing on all your regular online purchases.

How does it work?

The process is simple, sign up to TopCashback and do all your shopping through them (most major retailers are featured on their site), they get commission from the retailer for referring you and you get that commission back!

The trick is to get in the habit of visiting TopCashback before you make any online purchase (you can download a chrome extension that will remind you every time you visit a retailer that offers cashback) and you’ll see the money building up in your cashback account in no time. 

Once you’ve earned over £10 you’ll be able to withdraw your earnings, either straight into your bank account/PayPal or through one of TopCashback’s partners (they usually add a bonus for withdrawing through them).

Is TopCashback safe?

When I’ve explained cashback to people before I’m often faced with questions/concerns such as:

Why would a company give away money for nothing? Is my data being stored? Are my card details safe?

TopCashback aren’t giving money for nothing, they’re simply cashing in on referral commission and then giving you the majority of it! The only data they store is your visit to the retailer & they can’t access your card details. Having used TopCashback for nearly 3 years I haven’t had any security issues!

How I earned over £350

I make sure to check TopCashback before purchasing anything (including takeaways, grocery shopping, buying clothes & Christmas shopping!). There is also a “free cashback” section where you can earn money without spending a penny and an “on card” section where you’ll earn just by using your card at selected retailers! But if you want to earn big £££’s, you’ll need to remember to use TCB on your bigger purchases such as utilities and holidays! Here are my top 3 biggest cashback earners:


I recently moved into a flat with my partner and being the money-savvy one I took care of our broadband! I managed to find a great little deal from Sky at £18pm… but having signed up through TopCashback I got £110 cashback + £2.50 bonus (which paid for 6 months!) & Sky sent me a £50 pre-paid card! Winner!

Mobile phone’s are expensive! When I signed up for my new phone contract with EE last year I made sure to check TCB before buying anything! I managed to earn £60 just for clicking through the TopCashback website (which payed for 2 months of my contract!). At the time of me writing this post EE are offering up to £93 cashback on mobile contracts!

This one is a simple, everyday deal. I spent just over £25 on my grocery shop at Asda and got £7 back in cashback. Yes it’s not a massive earner, but for groceries that needed to be bought regardless, I’m pretty pleased with this one! Not to mention the fact that I hate shopping and doing my grocery shop this way meant that I didn’t have to go traipsing round the store!

Another TopCashback bonus is the tell-a-friend scheme! Once you’ve signed up to TopCashback you’ll be given a unique link that you can share with friends and family, if they sign up using your link (and earn at least £10) you’ll both get a bonus between £5-£20!

Sign up using my link and we’ll both get a bonus too!

There are other sites that offer cashback alternatives including Quidco, Swagbucks and Boom25 but I honestly prefer TopCashback over all of them! If you want to find out more about cashback and the other alternatives to TopCashback head over to my Cashback Guide.

This sounds like a great idea – if only I were in the UK 😂. It’s a great concept though. I think I’ll see if there is a similar programme here in Australia.

    Yeah I’m pretty sure that most sites accept PayPal now! 😊
