Earn as you Shop
As a stay at home mum I am always looking for ways to save or earn money. This is by far the easiest way to earn or to save a bit of extra cash from home. I earned over £400 in Cashback in a year, by shopping.
Shop Via Cashback Sites
Any time that I need to make a purchase, I browse online and decide what I want. I then check if the retailer or the item is available through my cash back website. If it is, you simply click through from the cash back website and you end up right back where you started with your chosen retailer. The cash back is then tracked and then made available to you for payment after a set number of days – as long as you haven’t returned your product.
Do Your Research
As an example, whenever my insurance is up for renewal I look for the best deal using comparison sites, once I have decided where the best deal is, I look on my cash back website to see if it is available through them. If it is, then I make the purchase through the cash back site. If it’s not but I find another deal I will figure out which one works out cheaper once the cash back has been applied and go with the cheaper option.
£30 for Switching to a Cheaper Energy Provider
I switched energy provider last year through U Switch to get a better deal. U Switch is on my cash back site so I earned £30 for switching to a cheaper energy deal. Win win!
