It’s back – 500 Clubcard points for joining TopCashback

Back in 2013 I wrote an introduction to cashback site TopCashback.  This is a site which allows you to earn a small percentage of your money back when you shop online if you visit merchants via their special links.

Unlike Quidco, TopCashback allows you to receive payment via a number of means.  You can take it via Paypal or bank transfer if you like, but there are also other options such as Avios points, retailer gift vouchers and Clubcard points.  All of these non-cash alternatives are sweetened by a bonus of 5% to 10% of your total payment.

The article I link to above gives a full introduction to how it works.

As a reminder:

1p of TopCashback cash paid into your bank account is worth 1p.  However, 1p of TopCashback paid to you in Tesco Clubcard vouchers could be worth as much as 3p if you use them for a Clubcard Boost item.

It is even better than that.

TopCashback gives you a 5% bonus on all transfers to Tesco Clubcard.  You are 5% better than off than taking cash even if you do nothing more than spend your vouchers in Tesco (which I don’t recommend).

TopCashback

There are a few conditions to be remember:

You are capped at £50 cashback per year

You cannot split cashback from individual transactions.  If you receive £60 from one deal, you cannot send any of it to Tesco.  Similarly, if you have already sent £40 to Tesco then you won’t be able to convert a £20 cashback.

Cashback made up of lots of smaller transactions is not a problem though.  You can select only certain transactions to go to Tesco to keep you under £50.

Some merchants do not allow cashback to be paid out via Tesco.

If you are not already a member, here is a great incentive.  Until 10am on 5th October – when you use my referral link here – you will receive 500 bonus Tesco points!

The way this works is a little complex.  You need to earn £10 in commission before you receive the 500 points but there is NO TIME LIMIT on this.

Once you have earned £10, £5 will be placed in your TopCashback account.  This can ONLY be withdrawn into Tesco – you will not be allowed to take it as cash.

How to join

This offer is only available if you are referred by an existing TopCashback member.  If you sign up using the general link on the TCB website then you will not receive a bonus.

You will see that TopCashback has two membership levels.  One is free and the other costs £5 per year.  The core difference is that you earn a slightly higher level of cashback (5% more) if you are a premium member.  You will also, in theory, receive a faster response if you need to chase up any problems with your cashback.

If you are a new member, I would recommend joining at the free level.  If you start to use it heavily then you may wish to upgrade later but it isn’t necessary in the short term.

Conclusion

This is a great deal and if you are not already a TCB member it is well worth jumping in.  If you currently use Quidco then you should move across to TCB, at least until you have earned enough to trigger the 500 points bonus.

As there is no time limit on earning the cashback there is no reason to delay.  My referral link is here.

The deadline to sign up and receive the 500 Clubcard points is 5th October.
