    Boom25 Referral - Cashback alternative - Win your order value

    Boom25 Referral - Cashback alternative - Win your order value 19th Jul 17 at 9:57 AM
    I've been a member of cashback sites for years, but have just discovered a new way of potentially winning back your order value. Boom25 gives you a 1 in25 chance of winning a full refund on your purchase, so imo better than the small percentages you can sometimes earn through cashback sites. I also can't see any restrictions to entry if you use a promo code.

    It's free to join, no account fees and - I've looked hard as I was sceptical - but I can't find a catch at all. I've placed six orders and won the value back on two of them totalling £124.

    If you don't win on your first order they'll send you a voucher for £10-£15 (at the moment it's a £10 gift card to use at Boohoo) or if your order value is less than £30 they'll refund half of the value.

    Click this link to join

    Over the next few days I earn £1 per click (up to a max £200) but I've been raving about this website to all of my friends and family for the past few days while I've been on holiday, before there was a referral fee, so this is just a nice added bonus which I think you can benefit from too if you join, though the referral bonus is only until Tuesday 25th July.

    This is the info from the Boom25 website:

    WHAT IS BOOM25?
    Boom25 adds the thrill back into online shopping! Just search for a retailer, click on the link and shop. The retailer will notify us as soon as you make a purchase and BOOM - if you’re 25th in line we’ll refund you for the purchase, no matter how large or small!

    It's as simple as that! There are no membership fees and nothing to lose.

    You could win money back for a designer dress, a smartphone, even your next holiday... just shop and play!

    HOW IT WORKS
    By clicking on our link to your chosen retailer, you’re automatically entered with a chance of winning as soon as you make a purchase! We collect a pot of cash ready for our lucky Boom 25 winners with commission accrued from our partner retailers. Winnings are paid out to every 25th shopper... whether it’s for a bag of sweets or a flight to Barbados!

    All you need is an email address (so we can alert you of your winnings). If you’re the next Boom 25 winner, we’ll send you the cash via a safe and secure PayPal transaction.

    Personally I have had over £1000 back from cash back sites so I will stick to those.

    I would rather that than "a chance" to win.

    Hi Sarah, I thought the same initially, but there are merchants on Boom25 which aren't on Topcashback and Quidco such as ASOS, so no chance of cashback on those anyway and as it's free to join with no account fees so there's nothing to lose.

    Also, if you don't win a refund on your first order placed through them they'll send you a £10 Boohoo voucher (these change every now and then and have been £15 Amazon gift cards in the past) if the order value is over £30 or they'll refund 50% of your order value if it's less than £30. So even if you don't use them again after the first order you're still going to be quids in!

    I signed up using the link from @whiterabbit and will use Boom25 to order from JustEat (:

    If anyone wants to use my referral link:
    https://boom25.com/?referrer=bf5e4f6d-2452-4525-8e77-4b81288bfc49

    Boom25 currently pays £2 for each referral when they place an order (and it's not refunded or cancelled).
