Make Easy Money When You Shop Online With TopCashBack -UK

Updated on September 11, 2012

Wouldn't it be good if you could get money back for nearly all your shopping online in the same way that you do when using loyalty cards on the highstreet? Lots of people still don't know about this, but you can!

Those extra points/pounds come in very handy for Christmas, Birthdays or even a well deserved treat for yourself.

I'm not one for recommending something that I haven't tried and tested myself, so nearly two years on and having received my cashback into my bank account, here I am. It hasn't made me rich but it certainly made my last Christmas a bit cheaper.

What do you have to do?

Well, first you make an account with them. It's nice and easy to join, they only ask for your name, email address and a password.

You don't have to give your bank details, which is great for anyone that is a bit weary of handing over their details.

You can decide to give you bank account number when you want to be paid or if you still don't want to, then you can choose to be paid by cheque or through PayPal.

How to use TopCashBack

After you have made an account, you simply log in and then use the search bar to find the store you want to shop at, such as homebase, agros and haven holidays etc.

The search will bring up a link to that store and usually a picture so that you can recognise it's the right one. You follow the link and then shop entirely as you normal would (just as if you hadn't clicked through anything else at all).

What happens next?

You don't have to do anything else, just shop as usual and close down your internet as usual when your finished.

The rest is taken care of for you. The Topcashback website will use cookies to find out how much you have spent and then pay you a commission of that amount.

In non-technical terms, that just means the store that you have shopped at, like Newlook and Argos etc will let TopCashBack know how much you have spent on their website.

That's it! You can sit back and wait for them pennies to start amounting up!

Here's why I like TopCashBack

  • They don't charge me to join
  • They don't take any of my commission
  • Website is easy to use
  • There's no annual fee
  • They have a good reputation
  • There's no fee's to me EVER!

There are several cashback websites and I put plenty of research into them all before deciding to use this one.

Unlike many of the others, TopCashBack is totally free with no catches (two of my favourite things).

Ok so you do your shopping but when do you get paid?

The money will take approximately 24 hours to show up on your TopCashBack account, but does sometimes take longer. It will remain there for a little while and show up as pending until the store has given TopCashBack the money for you. As soon as the payment has been confirmed, you can withdraw it.

The minimum you can withdraw, if being paid into your bank or to your PayPal account is £0.01.

If you want to be paid by cheque then you will have to wait until you have at least £75.00 in your account before they will pay you.

Anything I should be made aware of?

You have to log into your account at least every 6 months. If you don't, then TopCashBack will assume that you no longer want your account and close it down.

I'm pretty sure that they send you an email before they close your account as a little reminder though.
