The real value of cashback sites for parents

The real value of cashback sites for parents

Did you know that the average Quidco cashback member earns £305 per year just by shopping online?

For those of you who aren’t sure about how cashback works or just want to know how to make the most of your Quidco account, read on! We’ve compiled a handy ‘parents cashback guide’ to help you get the most out of your online shopping.

So, what is cashback?

Cashback is the commission that brands pay sites like Quidco for referring a customer to them. Say you signed up to Quidco and found Toys R Us on site and wanted to make a purchase - you would click through to Toys R Us from Quidco and that purchase would be ‘tracked’. This means they would then pay commission (usually a percentage of your order value) to Quidco. Instead of keeping this commission, Quidco then pass this money back to you - the customer - as ‘cashback’.

Which brands can I earn cashback with?

There’s quite a few! Over 4,500 on Quidco, in fact. Whether you are looking to upgrade your phone contract, purchase a Now TV pass, book a holiday or do a spot of clothes or home shopping, you’ll find so many brands to choose from, all offering you cashback.

What are the tricks to getting the highest cashback rates?

The retailers on Quidco will often offer exclusive or increased cashback rates, allowing you to earn even more money back on your purchases! If you sign up to receive email alerts, you’ll be notified whenever the cashback offers increase. Quidco update their website daily, so be sure to check back often for new offers, vouchers and cashback deals.

You’ll find that higher value purchases such as utilities or holidays will earn you higher cashback rates. So if you’re wanting to take the family away or switch your insurance provider, Quidco is a great place to start.

How do I actually get my cashback?

You’ll receive a notification from Quidco letting you know when your cashback is ready to be paid. Any purchases ready to be paid will update to a ‘confirmed’ status, once that happens just click ‘Pay me’ and your cashback will be on its way. You can even choose how you want your cashback - in your bank account, via paypal, or even as retail vouchers!

Quick tip: Why not use your cashback earnings as a ‘savings account’ for your family? £300+ a year could be a real financial weight off your shoulders towards next year's holiday or kitting out the kids for back to school.
