No, I’m not lying, you really can.

I’m really not.

Hey guys,

So, I’m going to let you all in on how I make some money from buying my makeup, skin care, house decor and sometimes groceries online. It’s super easy and you can too!

My secret is

*drum roll please*


Yes, you’ve heard it before. You’ve seen it on telly.

But, it really does work.

I’ve had an account with TopCashback and Quidco for a while now, and recently just started using it more. I think I may just be the stupidest student out there because I’ve not been making the most of it.

I moved into a new flat last month, and signed up to a new broadband provider. Guess how much cashback got tracked with Quidco. Guess, go on!


Think I’m lying.

Here’s proof.

Now, normally, I only use TopCashback, because their cashback rates are pretty much always better than Quidco. But, I now use both because I almost missed out on that whopper of a saving. £90! I know! That’s a new handbag! At least 3 high-end makeup products! I hear Tarte cosmetics calling my name already. I may just have enough to get a few thing from my August wishlist!

It is super easy to use and set up. I highly highly recommend using BOTH TopCashback and Quidco! You won’t get spammed with emails, and if their regular emails annoy the heck out of you, simply change it in the setting.

Also, sometimes both Quidco and TopCashback do exclusive deals that you won’t find on competitor sites. These are the money saving bad boys.

If you’re a student, and you don’t make use of this opportunity, you are missing out, big time! I mean, you could save up for a holiday! Or have your Christmas presents sorted earlier because you’re not scrounging around for pennies!

Here are some examples of offers I see:


And there was a LOT more. I just tried to get a select few.


I’m going to keep it short and leave it at that.

My final words of wisdom.

Sign up. Now!


Lots of love,

    I don’t do a lot of online shopping, but it’s good to know there IS cashback money to be made!

      It’s a really good habit to get into if you ever start shopping online more 🙂
