What is TopCashback?


TopCashback UK is a cashback site that gives you a financial reward when you purchase through its site. There are various cashback sites available, but TopCashback is one of the most popular – with more than nine million users.

Since its launch in 2005, it has grown immensely. There are now thousands of stores on TopCashback for you to shop at, most of which are well-known, popular brands we all love.

Here we break down everything there is to know about TopCashback, so you can find out how to get your hands on some extra cash.

How to get started on TopCashback UK

It’s easy to use TopCashback. In fact, it’s probably simpler than coming up with a witty bio on social media.

Just head to the website and sign up – it’s free! And even once you’ve signed up and started shopping, there are no charges to withdraw your cashback either. You’ll receive a welcome email explaining the ins and outs of the website and if you ever feel like it isn’t right for you, you can unsubscribe at no cost.

What’s to lose? Once you’re all set up, the world – or TopCashback – is your oyster.

How to earn money on TopCashback

So, you’re all set up and asking the age-old question of “how do I earn money?”. It’s simple:

  1. Find the shop you want to purchase from on the TopCashback website.
  2. Click the link to visit the store’s website.
  3. Browse the website just like you would if you weren’t using the cashback site.
  4. Make the purchase.
  5. Wait for your cashback bonus to arrive.

We know – it sounds too good to be true, doesn’t it? But it isn't. The magic is all in the link you click from TopCashback UK to the store of your choice. Clicking that link means the retailer pays the site a referral commission, which gets passed back to you as cashback.

Once TopCashback receives its commission, the funds will arrive in your account.
Wondering how the cashback site gets paid? Sponsored ads! These are dotted around the website and with millions of users, ad space on the site could be very lucrative. That’s how they can give you 100% of the referral commission!

Promo codes and deals

As well as cashback on popular brands, TopCashback UK also offers daily discounts. These daily deals run for a limited time, so you need to act fast when you see an offer you want to use.

As an example of what to expect, some daily deals in the past have included:

  • Up to 20% cashback on Groupon
  • 1.1% cashback on eBay
  • 11% cashback on Red Letter Days.

When you find a deal you want to use, click it to find out how to access the offer.
TopCashback also has a range of offers for specific brands. When you click on a store you want to shop at, scroll down to see if there are any additional offers on the page for that shop.

For example, Tesco offers up to 16.5% cashback. However, it also has special deals and vouchers including £8.80 cashback for new customers of click+collect (at the time of writing).

Take your time to compare offers. If, for example, you want a pair of shoes, one shoe shop might offer 2% cashback, while another advertises 5%.

Enjoy cashback freebies

 TopCashback sometimes allows you to make some money for free. You can earn free cashback (with no purchase necessary) by completing surveys, entering prize draws and getting quotes from different price comparison sites. While you won’t be rewarded with a huge sum of cash, it can all add up.

How to get paid by TopCashback

Some cashback sites only allow you to cash out a set number of times a year, or you have to have a certain amount in your account. TopCashback is flexible and allows you to request a pay out at any time – simply ensure the transactions have become ‘payable’. Once this happens, you’re free to withdraw any funds when you want.

Withdraw your cash once it’s ready 

It’s recommended you withdraw any funds as soon as they are available, rather than keep them to build up on the site. This is because if the business suddenly ceased trading, the funds would be lost. Also, if your account is hacked, you could lose any money stored in it. It’s always safest to deposit money in your bank account at the earliest opportunity.
