Last chance to join TopCashback for free and get 500 Clubcard points (1,200 Avios)

Love Clubcard, don’t collect Avios?  You should be reading our sister site, Shopper Points (www.shopperpoints.co.uk), which covers the latest Clubcard and Nectar offers without any distracting frequent flyer talk!  Why not check it out now?

Just a reminder that 9am tomorrow (November 2nd) is the deadline for earning 500 Clubcard points (1,200 Avios or 1,250 Virgin miles) for joining cashback site TopCashback.

TopCashback, like Quidco, is a site which allows you to earn a small amount of cashback on your day to day shopping by clicking through to participating merchants.

Last year, TopCashback launched a feature allowing you to pay your cashback directly into your Tesco Clubcard account – and gave you a 5% bonus on top!

This dramatically increased the value of TopCashback cashback versus Quidco:

£10 of cashback earned at Quidco earns you £10

£10 of cashback earned at TopCashback earns you £10.50 (with the 5% bonus) paid into your Tesco Clubcard account. That gives you 1,050 Clubcard points. These convert into 2,520 Avios points or 2,625 Virgiin Flying Club miles. You are effectively ‘buying’ Avios points for just 0.4p each.

Until 9am on 2nd November – ie 9am on Sunday – if you join TopCashback via our refer-a-friend link, you will receive 500 Clubcard points when you have earned £10 of cashback.

(It is possible that the deadline may be 9am Monday as the website mentions November 3rd at one point.  However, for safety, I am going with the official terms and conditions which say 2nd November.)

There is no time limit on how long you have to earn your £10 cashback – a month, three months, six months, whatever.

Note that your 500 points are not deposited directly into your Clubcard account. Once you have earned £10 cashback, TopCashback will put a further £5 in your TopCashback account. You can only withdraw this £5 to your Tesco Clubcard account.

You can transfer up to £50 of cashback per year from TopCashback to Clubcard (a year runs from the date of your first Tesco transfer, not the calendar year or from the date you joined). This means that you can earn up to 12,000 Avios per year this way! Even better, your £5 sign-up bonus does not count towards your £50 per year cap.

The only condition is that you join via a refer-a-friend link. If you sign up directly on the TopCashback site, you will not receive your 500 Clubcard points.

What next?

You should open a TopCashback account now and using it for your day-to-day online shopping instead of Quidco, at least for the first £50 of cashback per year you generate.

There are two membership levels at TopCashback – a free version and a £5 annual fee version. The £5 level pays slightly higher cashback and has improved customer service if you have any problems. However, you will receive the 500 Clubcard points whichever level you choose. To be honest, I would start at the free level and only upgrade when you have decided that you like the site.

Unfortunately, there is no notice on the TCB site that you will be signing up for the Tesco offer. However, don’t worry, you will be fine. All refer-a-friend transactions until 9am on November 2nd will be receiving it. The terms and conditions of this offer can be found here.

Comments from earlier in the week suggest that the points immediately show as a ‘pending’ payment on your account, although it will not move to ‘confirmed’ until you have earned £10.

I receive a commission for referring you which helps to support HFP. Thank you.

  1. It’s amazing, shame I already signed up lol

  2. Still OK today, ie 5000 limit not reached yet

  3. Thanks, just picked up a couple for little’un and wife!

  4. Nice spot – seems to be down to £88.88 but still a good deal, might apply!

  5. Cheers squills,

    Going to have a go at later tonight!

  6. Hmm rather annoyingly/worryingly it didn’t track automatically for me after 3 days so have had to submit a missing c/back claim – hopefully they’ll pay out OK!

  7. They do usually track fine but might take 48 hrs.

    When I have had to put a claim in, they are also nearly always OK about paying up, so if yours hasn’t tracked by tomorrow, stick a claim in.

  8. Ironically nearly bought the little ‘un a £2 Thomas one in Tesco tonight. Looks like I need to go back!
