Earn Travel Cashback Here!

I don’t normally recommend commercial web sites, but this one is the exception.  I really recommend the Topcashback web site. It has saved me a lot of money with a couple of years.

Although it sounds too good to be true, it’s not. You really can earn cash-back when you visit a multitude of on-line retailers, via the Topcashback web site.

There is NO catch* (as long as you still shop around to compare prices and don’t buy things that you don’t need). There are NO fees to pay.

Not all on-line retails are featured, but many of them are. The cash-back percentage varies from various retailer.

The good news is that you can use the Topcashback site with a number of travel web sites to book hotels, parking and flights. Hotels.com are offering 10% and Expedia 12% at the time of writing.

Some cruise lines  have offered cashback, including P&O, RCI, Fred Olsen and TUI.  Travel agents such as cruise.co uk also offer a small percentage of cashback.  Cashback on E-bay purchases is currently featured, too. There is also a cashback dot.com site for our American friends.

Joining is simple, Just click the link (no fee): HERE

(I do not work for Topcashback,  I just happen to think it’s an excellent tool if you want to save money on buying on-line goods, accommodation and travel.)

Please let me know how much money you have saved using Topcashback. I will post all positive and negative feedback below.


*(Cashback is never guaranteed but usually comes through.)

Cashback Credit Card (U.K.)

I also use a cash-back credit card for most of my purchases, on-line or in shops, travel or other goods.  I use a ‘Platinum’ American Express’ card.

In short, I use the card and I get 1% cashback on most of my purchases. I also use it in conjunction with Topcashback to get extra discount. Now although 1% does not sound very impressive, in the course of a year, it mounts up. It’s essentially free money.

What’s the catch? There is no fee on this particular card. However you need to use it for most of your monthly spend to make it worthwhile. (Not difficult in this increasingly cashless society). There is a minimum spend of 5k per year, to get 1%, spend less and you get 0.5%.

What about the interest you ask? The interest is higher than some cards, but I have set up a direct debit to pay my monthly credit card bill in full. I do not use the credit facility as such. I pay NO interest.

American Express normally offers and introductory period when you get extra cashback. It is currently 5% for three months, to a maximum of £100 cashback.

What is the downside?  Not all shops and retailers accept American Express, but most do.

If you are interested, there are some terms and conditions that you should read. I’ve just given you the basic facts. I’m not a fiance expert. The card may not suit everybody.

(The terms and conditions quoted are for the U.K at the time of writing and may change, please check with Amex.  American and other countries Amex T&C’s may be different.)
