A beginner’s guide to using the best cashback sites

Topcashback and Quidco – in a nutshell
There are 4,200 online retailers that are part of Topcashback, and their top 20 offers claims to give you up to £178.50 in cashback.

There is a refer-a-friend scheme whereby if you refer a friend and they sign up using your email address credentials, and make a qualifying purchase through the Topcashback website, then you will earn £5 (sometimes £10!) for each one.
Both the main Topcashback and
Ultimately, you have nothing to lose by joining up to Topcashback or QuidCo. It only takes a few extra seconds to go to a website via them, and they have an app and a toolbar for you to install if these would make this easier.
