TopCashBack review

Affiliate links in this post will be clearly marked with a *. Clicking one of these links means I earn a discount or receive payment.

I’m a real fan of earning cashback from cashback sites. For me there is something so satisfying about receiving money back for purchases that I was going to make anyway!

Cashback sites are fantastic in that they incentivise you for joining up with a nice signup bonus too. Even if you are an occasional spender the savings soon add up throughout the years.

I should know – I’ve made over £2,000 so far! 

Cashback sites are everywhere these days but my favourites are TopCashBack and Quidco. I would say that *I use TopCashBack around 95% of the time but I do use *Quidco too.

The reimbursements on offer for purchases are fantastic and I get an enhanced rate for being a Plus member. This means that I spend just £5 per year and I get a % bonus on almost all of the purchases that I make.

I’ve made more than £2,000 now – money for nothing! Here is a little screenshot from March 2017 when I’d made £1,900+.

I love cashback sites - here is a screenshot of my earnings with TopCashBack

As you can see I’ve made a few nice pennies! I’ve been a member for a few years now so I’ve had cashback on everything from holidays to insurance and even takeaways! Yum!

I have personally earned cashback on a vast array of purchases from companies including Next, Amazon, eBuyer, Tesco Groceries, Just-Eat, Halfords and many more.

There are hundreds of merchants just waiting to award you cashback via TopCashBack, and other cashback sites. This is free money for purchases that you would have made anyway.

There are even exclusive discounts and voucher codes available via TopCashBack too for many sites. What are you waiting for – *sign up to TopCashBack today! 

It is free to join and you get awarded 100% of their cashback. Payouts are available via Paypal, BACS, Amazon and more. What’s more their members made over £25,000,000 in just one year alone!

How to use TopCashBack:

It’s REALLY simple. Sign up, search for the merchant you want to earn cashback from, click through and then shop as normal.

Be sure to read all of the terms on the TopCashBack website, as sometimes you won’t earn cashback if you use voucher codes or unauthorised links. Also, if you click another link from Google etc, then the cashback won’t track to TopCashBack, so do bear that in mind!

Is TopCashBack free?

Yes, there is a paid membership, which comes with some benefits, so just be sure that you’re not signed up to that if you don’t want to use it.

If you do sign up for the Plus account the £5 annual fee can be taken when you cash out some of your earnings.

How does TopCashBack make money?

Adverts and sponsored links help TopCashBack to make money. Merchants, and the agencies, who provide the links, also pay TopCashBack bonuses. You can read more about this here.

I forgot to use TopCashBack what can I do about this?

Nope! If you didn’t click through then the cashback won’t track, there won’t be a cookie and TopCashBack support won’t be able to help you with this either.

Consider downloading the TopCashBack browser add on to make sure you don’t miss out on cashback, as it’ll give you a little reminder to click through before you shop!

What I think of my favourite of the cashback sites – TopCashBack

Cashback sites provide a good way to earn money back for purchases that you were already going to make. My top tip with cashback sites, regardless of which ones they are, would be never to rely on the cashback.

Never factor the cashback in when purchasing an item. I have had several occasions where cashback has been declined. Usually this is resolved easily, with a support ticket, but not always.

On occasion I’ve missed a term or condition, such as not using additional voucher codes. Do not rely on cashback – think of it as an added bonus!

Membership is free so why not sign up?! You’ll *earn me a nice bonus when you complete your first cashout too – thanks so much!
