Cashback websites pay you when you go through them to shop online. When using them properly, you can earn £100s in cashback, there is no increase in the price you pay and they are a great way to save funds for your family days out.
How do cashback sites work?
Cashback sites are free to join and the amount of cash you can get back ranges from less than £1 to over £100 depending on the retailer and the products you are purchasing.
If you want to buy something online, before you go direct, click through to the company website via a cashback site and get paid for it. Sign up to one of our recommended cashback sites, TopCashBack or Quidco, both of which are free to join. Once you have signed up, simply log in and each time you shop, search for the online retailer you want to buy from, such as Sky or Booking.com. If it’s listed, click the cashback site’s link to visit that company.
Your visit is automatically tracked so if you buy something, the pending cashback amount is added to your account once the transaction has processed. The transaction is immediately tracked but it can take a few weeks for the cashback to be approved by the retailer. Once approved you can withdraw this money and spend it on whatever you choose.
How Much Can I Earn?
The amount of cashback you receive is dependant on which retailer you are spending with. Below are some examples of what you can earn with TopCashBack.
Wowcher – Up to 9%
Currys / PC World – Up to £100
BT Up to £160
Booking.com – 4%
B&Q – 2%
Why do they payout?
Cashback sites use affiliate links, which allow the retailer to track where the traffic is coming from and then pay the cashback sites for the lead.
The amount of money received can vary widely and is dependant on factors such as the commercial deal.
Here at Attractions Near Me, we have accounts with both TopCashBack and Quidco. You may ask why have an account with both? The reason is that both partner with different retailers and where they feature the same retailers there can be big differences in the amount of Cashback available.
We have found that TopCashBack tends to offer the highest rates of cashback but with the variation in rates and dependant on the retailers, you use it’s always best to check Quidco too, especially when making larger purchases.
