Did you know that there are websites out there that allow you to save money every time you buy something? You may have heard of cashback sites such as TopCashback, Quidco, and RebatesMe, which offer cashback to you on everything from insurance, broadband, and clothing. Cashback has become one of the best ways to save when you buy, and if you look hard enough, you will most likely be able to make a saving on almost everything that you buy through the year. If you average 3% cashback on the thousands of dollars you may spend every year, this can turn into a significant amount of money.  

Where to get started with cashback sites? 
The first thing to do is to get signed up to a cashback site. Two of the largest cashback sites are Quidco and TopCashback, which have similar offerings and will cover most of the purchases that you make. Some cashback sites have a joining fee but may have additional services to off and better rates of cashback. Often, certain stores or online retailers will partner with a cashback site exclusively and give them an increased rate of cashback in return for greater visibility on their website. If you have a handful of stores where you buy most of your clothes and electronics, it is a good idea to research the top cashback sites and see which has the highest rates for where you shop regularly. You may want to sign up for several so that you can go through this process every time to make a purchase so that you are getting the best rates possible. For more information on the best bonuses for the top cashback websites, see this list.  

Click the link 
When you have signed up to your preferred cashback website, find the link on their website that will take you to the retailer’s website. Clicking this link will allow the retailer to know that you have come from a cashback website and will ensure that your cashback is tracked correctly. It can be a good idea to clear your cookies before clicking the link, as this is what is used to track your purchase back to the cashback site. If you have been to the retailer’s website before the sale may not track correctly, so deleting your cookies and then clicking the cashback link will ensure everything works correctly.  

Make your purchase 
After going through the link onto the website that you are making the purchase from, you can complete it as you usually would. Go through the process of adding your credit card details or PayPal information and enter all of your shipping details. Once this has been completed, you can check your cashback account to make sure that it has tracked correctly. It may take a little time to come in, but eventually, you will be able to see the cashback that you can then access. Most cashback sites will have a minimum amount of cashback you need to accrue before you can take it out.
