Get cashback on your online shopping

This post may contain affiliate links.

If you do any online shopping, it’s definitely worth being signed up with cashback sites. They’ll pay you either a set amount or a percentage of your purchase when you click through to the retailer from their website. If you’re buying something anyway, it’s a no-brainer!

It takes less than a minute to check the sites for the retailer you’re shopping with, see if they’re offering any cashback and click through to shop as normal. Seriously, if you’re not using cashback sites and you shop online, you’re missing out on easy money. If you don’t shop online, try these supermarket cashback apps to get cashback shopping in-store.

How to earn cashback on your online shopping

Here are some great cashback sites, all offering cashback with hundreds of retailers:


Search Topcashback to find the retailer you’re shopping with, then click through to buy. Cashback can take up to a few months to be paid out, each offer should give you a rough idea of how long it will be. You can choose to be paid directly to your bank account, into PayPal, or in the form of a gift voucher.


Just search before you buy to see if your retailer is on Quidco, then click through and buy. Cashback will show up in your account, and then you just wait til it becomes payable (time taken varies by retailer). You can choose to be paid into your bank account via BACS, into PayPal, or choose from a range of gift cards. You can even add your cards onto your Quidco account to earn extra cashback when you use them in certain stores!


Another site you might want to check out is Kidstart, they offer cashback on your shopping at Amazon, John Lewis, Ebay, M&S and tons more. It’s a little different, as they suggest the money you earn is ‘savings’ for your children and it goes into your ‘kiddybank’,  but you don’t actually need to have children to sign up and earn cashback. Link your bank account or child’s savings account and if you’ve accrued the minimum amount (usually £10) in your kiddybank, this is automatically transferred into your bank.

I have earned over £1000 since I started using cashback sites. If you’re not already taking advantage of them, I definitely recommend starting!
