I absolutely love getting a bargain and saving a bit money in the process. And let’s be honest here, who doesn’t?
There are certain sites I use regularly to help me save on everyday purchases and even get cash back when I buy things (because who doesn’t want free money?) From saving money on groceries to holidays, car insurance to make-up, this post covers it all!
Here are my top favourite sites 🙂 By the way, I’ve not been asked by any of these companies to write about them, I just use these sites regularly and wanted to share them with you.
1. Topcashback – You may well have heard of Topcashback before; it’s absolutely amazing.
I signed up in January 2014 and have earned over £150 in that time. It doesn’t sound like a huge amount, but I don’t generally spend much any one transaction so my percentage return is quite small, but for people who shop a lot or spend a large amount in one go, it adds up really quickly.
To use it, you just have to remember to log into Topcashback before going on any website you’re planning to buy from, otherwise you won’t be eligible for the cashback.
For example, if you want to have a massive spending spree on ASOS, type it in to the search bar on Topcashback and click on the link. As you can see there’s a “get cashback now” button, if you click on it, you’ll get sent straight to the ASOS site and your visit’s recorded! If you buy anything, you’ll get a percentage of your money back! Although there are often stipulations, like cashback for new customers only, so read the terms and conditions thoroughly before spending””
You can also use it for renewing your car/pet/home insurance and booking holidays! If you want to sign up, I’d love it if you’d click here, as I get a small bonus if you earn £5.
2. HotUkDeals – This is another website I use reguarly and the users of the site add great deals they’ve found in stores or online. You generally have to be quick though as once they decide that it’s a “hot deal” the items tend to sell out ridiculously quickly as they go straight to the front page!
You can search by product or by shop/website to find some great deals. And best of all, you can set up the app with keywords and it alerts you when a deal matching your keyword pops up.
My best buys so far have been two pairs of Converse for about £25 each 🙂 J’s best buys were probably our sofas which were a few hundred pounds down to about £80 in the sale! We were really lucky to get them as minutes after they were added to the site, the sofas were completely sold out!!
3. Mysupermarket – This is a fantastic site to help save money with grocery shopping.
You can sort items into “price per unit” so you know what the cheapest item actually is. This is great because often the product that’s 50p rather than £1 isn’t necessarily the cheapest because the one that’s £1 might be 500g whereas the 50p product might only be 40g!
It also shows you on the right-hand side how much your shop would cost from different supermarkets so you can get the best deal for your shop. They also have a “Swap and Save” option where they shower you cheaper products available.
