Imagine the biggest shopping centre you can, filled with all your favourite retailers. Now imagine that every time you bought something in this shopping centre, the shop assistants gave you some Money Back!
Welcome to the newest concept in online shopping - Money Back Shopping - where you get Money Back every time you shop online. These sites simply share affiliate advertising commission with their members, through tracked online purchases.
Here's the facts - Online shopping is set to quadruple by 2020, when it will account for almost 40% of all UK retail sales, up from just 2% in 2002. According to a recent report from the price comparison service, uSwitch, internet sales will reach £40bn this year, accounting for some 15% of overall retail sales.
Just imagine how much you could save if you were a part of this innovative way of shopping online... Money Back sites are an exciting new concept and are here for YOU to save even more money on your online spending.
You will generally find most of the major UK high street retailers on these sites, but equally exciting, there are also hundreds of specialist shops featured on these sites that you would never even know existed. For example, I know of a site specialising in cat flaps and another one specialising in designer clothes for pets!
To help you save even more money, Money Back sites also offer you further discounts with voucher codes, competitions and you can even earn free money for simply just searching for products and services.
Most Money Back sites also have lively forums, where members can get to know each other, exhange tips and advice on money saving and also post the latest deals they have found on the site, which of course they get money back on too!
Payments are sent to members monthly by cheque, although some money back sites are now offering more modern forms of payment including paypal and BACS.
