Top cash back - yu earn money for clicking through to shops you want to buy online from

£co - Quidco

If you want me to give you a referral code, I gain, and I think you do too, but would need to check that

I'm very well thanks - I started a new diary as we are close (I hope!) to selling our house and then I can start again with the overpaying.

I thought everybody had it on the max setting as I do it automatically so I used to get very confused when people would refer to pages and I could never find what they were talking about!

TCB = topcashback and £co = quidco they're cashback sites - you go via them when you make an online purchase and they give you cashback on the purchase

ETA: cross posted Tilly!

Thank you

I assume you get the cash back in return for them obtaining your personal information? I am very tempted to use sites like that. It does concern me though about what they do with your information, who they sell it too, and how many spam emails are generated as a result.

Am I being over the top and overly worried?

Hi, we use a separate email address only for on line purchases, thus both accounts were set up using this.

Plus we only use one credit card (cashback) with TCB and £co purchases.

They earn money due to the traffic they push to the outlets, as well I am sure, the details are useful for market research.

Someone who knows more is likely to pop by 😉
