How to spend and save at the same time

With the cost-of-living crisis impacting many people’s lives across the country right now, it’s more important than ever to save money where you can. But did you know, it’s possible to spend and save at the same time?

Earn while you shop

There’s no such thing as free money, right?

Well actually, free money isn’t as crazy as it might sound. KidStart allows you to earn money back on the shopping you usually do anyway. So you don’t need to feel guilty about spending money – you can even treat yourself to those new shoes you’ve had your eye if you make the purchase through KidStart.

What is KidStart?

KidStart is essentially a shopping club for parents. By accessing your favourite retailers through the KidStart app, and shopping online as normal, you’ll earn free money back from your purchases, which will go straight into your bank account or savings account – wherever you want it to go.

It’s free to join and there’s no fee to use it. You can earn money back on everything – from household bills, groceries and holidays, to fashion, homeware, electricals and more.

Where can you earn money with KidStart?

The range of retailers you can shop with is impressive. In fact, KidStart partners with over 2,300 retailers who give up to 20% back to parents. There’s so much choice, you’ll be hard pushed to find a brand you don’t already shop with.

Save money when you shop with high street fashion retailers like New Look, H&M and M&S. Get money back when you order takeaway from places like Domino’s, Just Eat and Uber Eats. Earn money when you book a holiday through companies such as TUI, Airbnb or British Airways. And making savings when you spend on homeware through the likes of John Lewis, Lakeland and Dunelm.

Essentially, whenever you plan to spend any money – even if you’re paying your energy bills or shopping for insurance – take a look at KidStart first and you’ll likely find them on the list of KidStart partners.

Save money on your food shop

Doing your food shopping is unavoidable. And for many families, the big food shop is one of the largest monthly outgoings, so it makes perfect sense to earn money back when you do it.

Whilst it can pay off to be thrifty about what you buy by looking for offers and comparing prices, by simply doing your food shop via KidStart, it means you can feel confident you’re making a saving without having to do any hard work.

KidStart works with some of the biggest names when it comes to supermarkets including Tesco, Sainsburys, Asda, Ocado, Aldi, Waitrose, Morrisons and Iceland.

Saving for your kids

We all want to provide a bright future for our kids. But when money is tight, it’s harder to save for them because what you earn has to pay for the essential things right now – like food, birthday presents and school uniform, for example.

By using KidStart and transferring the money you earn into a Beanstalk account (which is KidStart’s award-winning sister app) it’s the perfect way to build up some savings for your children, which can be difficult when times are tough.

Invite friends and family to earn money back too

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.

It means that when, let’s say, a grandparent makes a purchase, the money earned from that service can go straight into your account.

Having a KidStart account set up to turn your money earned into savings for your children, makes it an easy and effortless way for families to contribute towards your children’s future.

The ‘Invite Friends and Family’ tool enables you to send family members an email with details on how to contribute. Then, once they accept, they’re in!

Join KidStart and start saving

So if you fancy some free money to use in whatever way you like – whether you’d like to save for your children’s future, plan an unforgettable family holiday, or something else – sign up to KidStart and start earning money back on your purchases. What have you got to lose?
