In the UK we are really lucky to have not one, but several websites that offer free cashback on everyday online shopping. In this blog post you'll find a list of some of the best cashback sites in the UK and signup bonuses so you can get even more free cash!
Why you should always check for cashback. Save £100s every year!
Before buying anything online, or booking a service, you should always check for cashback. It’s easy to do, as many of the main cashback websites have browser extensions so you know instantly whether the website you’re shopping on has a cashback offer. This means you’ll never miss out on getting free money back for your purchases.
If you’re wondering whether getting cash back online is worth it, then let me tell you it definitely is! With just one of these cashback websites we managed to get over £1200 cashback in only three years! Amazing!
These websites do not even include any cashback offers you have already with your bank cards. Some bank accounts offer cashback incentives and rewards for certain retailers. The best thing is you can use your cashback bank cards to shop at the online retailers using the links below to benefit from your bank’s cashback offer and the cashback website’s offer!
For example, I regularly shop on eBay via Top Cashback. To pay I use a Tesco bank credit card (which I pay back in full every month). This means I get cashback from Top Cashback, Nectar points as my Nectar card is linked to eBay and I also get Tesco Clubcard points for using my Tesco credit card! Win-win-win!

Some people prefer Top Cashback and some prefer Quidco. Sometimes they have different offers, so if one doesn’t offer cashback where you’re shopping, then the other might. It’s free to open accounts at all these websites, so you may as well sign up to them all and start maximising your online savings.

There are a lot of cashback sites and it’s all about finding the one you like to use the best, or use a combination. One thing’s for sure though - you are losing out on a lot of cash each year if you’re not using cashback sites to do your online shopping! Since we started using cash back websites and apps, we’ve saved an average of £400 per year for things we were already buying and booking! Don't miss out on free cash.
