Best cashback sites that pay you to shop
Did you know you can make money when you shop online? There’s been an explosion in cashback websites and apps which will earn you cash every time you buy something.
The idea behind them is that you get the cash reward for buying goods or financial services through them rather than directly on the retailer’s website. They make their money via the retailers tracking where traffic is coming from, then paying them for the lead. They share this payout with you to increase traffic and enable them to make more money through the retailers.
The biggest ones are Quidco.com and Topcashback.co.uk. They have deals with thousands of retailers. Typical cashback payments include £35 to £140 on RAC breakdown cover, between £44 and £88 on a BT Broadband package, 1.5 per cent to 9.9 per cent of purchases with Lastminute.com and 1 per cent to 8 per cent of the cost of M&S purchases. You can transfer the money you earn via cashback straight to your bank account, PayPal or load it onto gift cards.
