Cashback on your Christmas Shop
Planning to do some of your Christmas shopping online this festive season? Find out how you can make some cash back on the shopping you were about to do anyway.
Christmas Shopping Cashback
If you are about to do some shopping online, stop scrolling and download the Kidstart app to or visit the Kidstart website to earn cashback on your purchases and make your money work for you.
Make sure you are not missing out on easy cash
Here’s the bad news, and let’s get it out of the way from the get go. If you haven’t been using a cashback provider on your shopping, you will have missed out on earning money for making the purchases you’d normally make, including your food shop.
The good news is that it’s never too late to start, and having shopped around (no pun intended), Kidstart has some brilliant savings which are perfect for the run up to Christmas, as well as earning you money on your purchases all year round.
Kidstart is essentially a shopping club for parents that lets you earn free money back on your online shopping. You can choose where your cash back goes, from a regular bank account to topping up your children’s savings.
Here is the lowdown on why Kidstart is a great way to earn whilst you shop this festive season, and beyond.
1. The range of retailers
We were really impressed by the range of retailers Kidstart enables you to shop with - over 2300 to be precise. Covering food, clothes, toys, holidays, health and beauty and much more, you’ll be hard pushed to find a brand you don’t already shop with. All those hard to buy Christmas presents can be made much easier in just a few clicks with the likes of Etsy, M&S, Groupon, Sports Direct and TK Maxx. You can find a full list here.
It is also worth investigating if you have a bigger purchase to make in the future, such as a holiday or buying new technology (Tui, First Choice and Apple are on the list). Kidstart is also perfect for shopping for events such as Birthdays with the likes of Argos, John Lewis, The Entertainer, The Works and shop Disney, amongst so many more.
2. Earn money back on your food shop
Doing your food shopping is unavoidable and so it makes perfect sense to earn cashback on it. Whilst it can pay off to be thrifty about what you buy by looking for offers and comparing prices, by simply doing your shop via Kidstart, you’ll know you’re making a saving without the hard work and brain ache. Kidstart works with some of the biggest names when it comes to supermarkets including Tesco, Sainsburys, Asda, Ocado, Aldi, Waitrose, Morrisons and Iceland. For many families, the food shop is one of the biggest monthly outgoings and so it really does pay off to earn cashback. And we all know that the food bill goes up over Christmas, so it's a great time to get your account set up to save. Just imagine looking at the turkey on the table, knowing it earned you some pennies!
3. Free and safe to use
There are so many scams going around that are incredibly easy to fall for and it can be hard to know who to trust. We recommend Kidstart because we know they are a safe service to use and their service is entirely free of charge. If you install the Savings Prompt to your browser so that you are shown where you can make savings on different websites, you should know that it does not record or store any personal data (it does track your purchases but then again it would have to, to know how much cash back you have earned).
4. Get the grandparents involved
The clever thing about Kidstart which sets them apart from other cashback providers is the ability to link friends and family to your Kidstart account. What this means in practice is that when, let’s say, a grandparent makes a purchase, the cashback from that service can go to your account. If you have your Kidstart account set up to turn your cashback into savings for your children, it is a pain free and effortless way for families to contribute towards your children’s future. The ‘Invite Friends and Family’ tool enables you to send them an email with details for how to contribute, and once they accept, they’re in!
5. Donate to charity
It is hard to feel able to make charitable donations when times are tough, especially when you have a long list of presents to buy, not to mention a fridge to fill. And we all know the adverts at this time of year showing us the hardship of others. It is easy to feel stuck between a rock and a hard place. This is where Kidstart can help. Whilst you can pocket your cashback or save it for your children, you can also set it up so that your cashback is donated to a charity of your choice. There is also no restriction on the number of charities that you can choose to donate to. The charity is then paid the amount of cash back you have earned and you won’t have had to put your hand in your pocket. It is a great initiative that can really benefit others.
So all in all, there really is no reason not to start earning and saving with Kidstart. If you shop at any one of the 2300 plus retailers on their site this Christmas, you will earn cash back as a result which you can choose what to do with.
The freedom, ease and flexibility of the service really do make it a brilliant way to shop, and the app is intuitive to use. It is a no brainer for anyone who is interested in getting the most out of their money and will never cost you a penny to use.
