Shit that sounds cheesy, I must have picked that line up from an advert or something?
So I joined some cashback sites. Or rather, I started using the cashback sites I signed up to AGES ago. For those not aware, the general idea is that you click through these sites to retailers, which by the magical power of cookies and referrals etc etc gains you cashback off your purchases.
So far I’ve got £55 for signing up for a new bank account (and a £100 bonus from the bank themselves), £2.18 for ordering some new trousers, £2.78 for ordering new shoes and £2.66 for sending some flowers. All stuff I was going to do anyway so it’s basically free cash. The only current annoyance with the whole thing is that, after buying my new sofa in-store, I discovered that I could have got something like 4% cashback on top of the £100 + 15% off which would have been over £15 cashback there too. And therein lies the problem… remembering to actually use the bloody sites.
Anyway, so my site of choice is Top CashBack (yes, that’s a referral link) purely because it has a guaranteed better rate of pay than Quidco et al. (Not to mention no minimum payout and no charge taken from your earnings.)
