Have you discovered TopCashback? It gives you FREE money. Seriously. It’s the quickest and easiest way easy way to get free cashback on your online shopping, for a multitude of shops.
I wanted to let you know (or remind you if you already know!) about TopCashback. I have made over £2000 cashback using it for the past decade or so, just by clicking through it when shopping on line.
Don’t believe me? This is a screen grab of my account (they have an app too) – see the ‘Total Earned’ bit at the bottom?
I want you to benefit from this quick and easy way to get free cashback too!
How Cashback Works
I’ve told a lot of my friends about it, but for some reason most of them glaze over when I try to explain it, and think it’s too complicated to bother with.
Trust me, it isn’t. This is FREE MONEY, just from a few extra clicks. I know it sounds too good to be true, but it really is brilliant.
TopCashback basically have an arrangement with the businesses they partner with that they get a cut of what the customer spends (at no cost to the customer) like a referral fee. And the customer (you) gets a percentage of that.
It’s not a fast money-maker but it all adds up. There are thousands of retailers on there, from fashion and beauty, to. homeware and electricals, and all sorts of insurance.
How Do You Get Free Cashback From topcashback.com?
Here is one of their FAQs that explains it:
Now, I must stress that the cashback does not work every time, so please shop around for the lowest price, and then go through this site. That way, you’re not out of pocket in case your transaction doesn’t track for one reason or another. I think of it as a nice bonus when it works.
The other thing is it can take weeks, or even months to get paid. So it’s not a quick one. Most of the shops I use are on here, apart from John Lewis. So when I bought my pushchair from Boots, I got cashback. When we needed house insurance, I got cashback. New credit card? Cashback. Road side assistance? Free cashback. New shoes? Cashback. Christmas shopping? You guessed it! Furniture and curtains? Yep that too. Most offer a small percentage of your purchase, but some, like insurance or something like a Sky or broadband contract offer a bigger payment.
There are more ethical and sustainable shops on there now as well, including some of my favourites like Thought Clothing and BAM Bamboo Clothing.
How to Shop Smart to Get Free Cashback: Step by Step
Step 2. Search for the company you want to buy from or browse the retailers.
Step 3. Click through to shop as usual.
This is what the site looks like when you find the company you want to shop with. I’ve picked Ethical Superstore as it has two of different levels of cash back, but don’t worry, they work that out for you!
Just click on the pink button and it takes you through to the site, and it will open a new window.
You’ll probably see this on the original TopCashback page, to show that your visit has been tracked.
Shop as normal and if it tracked, you’ll get an email to let you know it worked, and if not you can raise a ticket to ask them to investigate.
How Do You Get Your Free Cashback?
Now you just have to wait for your free money to be ‘payable’, when you can ask for a payout. You can get cash paid straight into your account through BACS, or you can get vouchers for loads of shops, which tend to have a 5 to 10% bonus amount added to them. You can get all sorts, including Amazon, experience days, hotels, B & Q, restaurants, supermarkets, Ticketmaster, John Lewis, Not On The Highstreet, and loads of others.
It takes a few days for this to be processed, then you get an email saying your pay out is ready and you can go to your account and redeem your voucher.
It’s free to join, and you can often use discount codes too, though sometimes they stop the cashback from tracking – I always try, as I’d rather have a discount straight away.
