Before I start, I apologise that this isn’t related to teaching or what I do in the classroom, but it is something that I want to share, especially in these days of cost-cutting and non-guaranteed pay rises!
Have you heard of Quidco? It is a cashback site that allows you to shop online as normal, but by going to your chosen online retailer through the link on the Quidco site, you can get paid for your custom. It sounds too good to be true, but that’s how simple it is!
In the past couple of years, I have earned over £400 of cashback through Quidco. I earned this money by going to online shops through the Quidco site. A few months back, I booked a hotel room through hotels.com, but Quidco was offering 10% cashback on all hotels.com purchases, so I earned £16, which has now gone into my bank account.
This is the point where I would normally tell you the catch, but at the risk of sounding like a QVC salesperson, there is no catch! If you use Quidco to go to online retailers and make a purchase, you get a percentage of your purchase as cashback.
You can also install the Quidco plugin if you use Chrome, which alerts you when you go onto a website that offers cashback if you go through the Quidco website. This was useful recently when I was booking a hotel room on the Premier Inn website, as I ended up getting 8% cashback without knowing it was available!
If you would like to sign up to Quidco, click on the banner below:
The banner is a referral link and I will receive a small commission if you sign up and earn cashback, but I’m writing this blog post to share the news of Quidco, not to earn money. Therefore, if you would prefer, you can click this link to go to Quidco without referral or type quidco.com into your browser.
