My very first article on this blog was a beginner’s guide to Quidco. I loved it then and I still love it now. But the way I earn my cashback has evolved over the years.
When the concept of cashback first came into the world people would turn to websites like Quidco to earn money on big one-off purchases. And you can still do this, but if that is all you are doing then you are not maximising what this site has to offer.
Therefore, I have compiled a list of my top five ways you can boost your cashback with Quidco.
I’m putting this one right at the top because it is the most important. There’s no point reading the rest of this post if you’ve not even signed up yet.
In case you don’t know Quidco is a way to earn cashback on all kinds of purchases. For example, let’s say you are booking a holiday with Expedia. Before you start looking, you log on to your Quidco account, search for Expedia and follow the link there.
What happens is that Quidco will send you to the Expedia website where you carry on as normal, but it will track that purchase and give you some money back. It is as simple as it sounds.
And what’s more, if you sign up with my link, you get a bonus £10 cashback on your first £5 spend. You’re welcome!
Did you know that Quidco has its own comparison service? This is a real money booster for me! I love to compare my car insurance, energy bills and broadband every year, which means BIG cashback every time I do.
By using their comparison tool you can earn cashback on these purchases too. And the cashback is normally a fixed amount rather than a percentage.
If you change these things every year like me you can easily make £100+ in cashback.
I shop on my phone all the time. Many times in my life have stopped shopping on my laptop because I actually find shopping on my phone easier.
Hence, it makes absolute sense for people like me to have access to Quidco on our smartphones. This allows me to earn cashback in the same way but on my phone.
It is really easy and super quick to find a retailer and tracks in exactly the same way. Plus, it is great to be able to manage your account from your phone too, with notifications when your cashback has been tracked and confirmed.
(PS. Make sure you sign up with my link here to access the £10 bonus before downloading the app!)
ClickSnap is a way to earn cashback for trying new products that you can buy in supermarkets. Either online or through the ClickSnap app, you’ll be able to see the offers available.
If you purchase one of these items, you’ll need to take a picture of your receipt and they’ll credit the cashback to your account.
It is a great way to try new products for a reduced price and you might even find some products on there that you would have bought anyway.
I’m quite a fan of making money from my mates, particularly if they can make some money from me at the same time. Once you’ve got your account up and running you’ll be able to refer your friends too.
This is a great way to boost your income from Quidco, because for every person you refer you get £10. And, to make it even easier to convince them, so do they.
The absolute best thing you can do to keep that cashback coming in is to utilise as many of these features as you can. Combine that we always checking Quidco before making a purchase and your cashback will be epic!
