It’s been almost 3 weeks now since we got married and we’re already planning our year-long Honeymoon Trip! Since Jonathan lived in the countryside, we always have to travel to London to leave the country or when we have to attend meetings! Well, I love London so much but that City is really expensive!
On our last few days in the UK, we just discovered about TopCashback UK! Where you get a money back on online shopping, booking hotels and even booking the train ticket! How I wish we knew that when we arrived last June in the UK because we spent a lot of money booking train tickets, shopping online and some stays whenever we go on a short visit to London! TopCashback UK contacted me to check out their website and I’m really glad I did. It’s like a normal online shopping which makes it that much easier to use, and it’s great making money back on something I was going to already purchase!
Even though we didn’t discover TopCashback UK right away, we luckily still saved a lot of money using it the last few days we were in London by booking various things online. It was so easy I wish I had known about it sooner! It’s a wonderful way to save money and travel at the SAME time! We are always looking for ways to help lessen the costs of traveling, which is why it is such a great platform!
Our personal experience using the website: What happened was that I was able to book a 4 night hotel stay for£390 (GBP) and was able to get a money back of £36.90 while I also got £3 from our train ticket from the Cotswolds to London! Well, we had extra money then to eat a Korean BBQ lunch! yum!

What is cashback?
It’s really quite simple. First, let’s look at what cash back is. Whenever you buy something as the consumer, you will get a percentage of that spend back in cash. Let’s look at it this way, if you spent £10 on a cinema ticket, and there is 10% cashback, you get £1 back. This clever and simple way to shop will help you get some of the money back that you would already be spending on TV contracts, clothes, and holiday expenses.
How does it work?
This is where TopCashback comes in. It’s the UK’s most generous cashback shopping site. TopCashback alone has over 4,500 retailers available (you have so many to choose from!). TopCashback tracks what that consumer spends on the retailer’s website, and once the purchase is confirmed by the retailer, the retailer pays TopCashback a percentage of the sale. This money is then given straight back to the consumer.
And, not only is 100% of the money retailers pay TopCashback for the purchases made by members given straight back to the member; it is also supplemented with an additional 1% for Classic accounts and 5% for Plus accounts- you have the chance to upgrade and make even more money!
TopCashback has over five and a half million members and has been operating for over 10 years. I was so happy I was able to use them in an expensive city such as London. It allowed me to purchase certain things knowing I would get some of the money back!
Members on average earn £325 a year on their spending by using TopCashback- that could be a plane ticket to another country for you adventurous readers looking to travel!
