Since I started using it I have got back £170, which certainly isn't to be sneezed at! Here is a screen grab of my earnings so far:
How It Works
Firstly signup is FREE! Basically there are loads of websites who have agreed to be a part of Top Cashback and each one has either a percentage or set cash amount which you will get back. For example, one I use a lot is House of Fraser who offer 1% (5% for new customers!) so if you were spending £100, you would get back £1, and all you need to do is go to the Top Cashback website first then use their link to go onto the House of Fraser website. It doesn't sound much but it certainly adds up!
The money goes through a few different stages but once it gets to 'payable' it's yours for the taking! There are various methods for claiming the money. It can be transferred into your bank account, into your paypal account, made into a Amazon voucher where you get an extra 5% added on, and made into a LoveToShop voucher with a similar offer.
I usually have small amounts made into Amazon vouchers and bigger amounts sent to my bank.
There are lots of companies who participate and here are of few of the bigger ones/ones I use often: House of Fraser, Dominos, eBay, Play.com, Tesco, The Body Shop, Boots, Superdrug, The AA, Debenhams and so many more.
I have had some really amazing deals through this website and here are some of them:
- £16.16 when I signed up to LoveFilm
- £19.19 when I bought £30 breakdown cover from The AA
- £75.75 when I got my iPhone contract through them using T-Mobile
The latter is a personal favourite of mine, I was so pleased when that appeared in my bank account! I had to pay a fee of £99 for the phone because I had a cheaper contract but getting three-quarters of it back definitely softened the blow!
Top Up Feature
To be honest this isn't something I know much about as it doesn't really affect me. On pretty much all transactions, they will include a 1% 'Top Up' which is included automatically (hence the weird amounts above!). If you earn between £100-£199 in the previous month, your Top Up rate jumps up to 5% and for over £200 it becomes 10% so you would be getting 110% in total. Kind of confusing but they work it all out for you - there's no way I would be earning that much anyway!!
Another amazing feature of this website is that when you tell your friends about it and they sign up, once they earn £10, you get £10 too!
Have I convinced you enough haha?! Here is the [link] again if you want to find out any more!
So that is basically it! I know this seems like a totally sponsored post but I promise you it's not, it's just something really worth signing up for if you shop online a lot! The link I have added is the one 'for friends' so if you do sign up and earn your £10, I will get a tenner too, but obviously if you want to be really cruel you can just sign up through their homepage ;) just kidding!
I hope you have found this useful!!
