    Thoughts on Boom25?

    Thoughts on Boom25? 7th Dec 17 at 9:41 AM
    I came across a link for Boom25.com on MSE about 5 weeks ago and I genuinely think I'm ready to pack in using Quidco and TopCashback.

    They are a bit different to the mainstream cashback websites in that rather than getting a few quid here and there, you have the chance of winning the full value of your order with no limit. And even if you don't win, they give you 50p bonus you can withdraw when you do win.

    In the space of about 5 weeks I've made just over £65 which is loads more than I normally get through Quidco or TopCashback. It seems to track and pay out so much quicker too! The website suggests it can take 7-92 days to payout, but I've generally had my prizes paid out within 2 weeks on average. JustEeat took 5 days!

    Has anyone else been using Boom25 and if so, what are your thoughts so far? Everyone seems to have heard of Quidco and TopCashback, but no one seems to have heard of Boom25 when I bring it up in conversation.

    Cashback sites - Quidco/Topcashback v Boom25
    • #5
    • 7th Dec 17, 3:11 PM
    I joined with Boom25 at the beginning of October this year. For many years I have used both Quidco and TopCashBack and in total have earned around £1500 from the two of them.


    Boom25 has over 600 retailers to purchase from - admittedly there are a lot I have never heard of and am unlikely to use but there are some big websites such as Argos, George at Asda, New Look, Boots, Very and Just Eat.


    I found it a thrill that instead of earning somewhere between 1-5% of my online spend, I could win my entire amount whether it be £5 or £600 - there is no upper limit.


    Well I started to use Boom25 for my Just Eat initially as I would only usually earn under £1 cashback from Quidco. Unfortunately I am yet to win from my Just Eat purchases BUT I have now won by money back 5 times from Very, Wilkos and The Entertainer and have received just short of £300 back.


    You can have to wait up to 92 days to find out if you were the 25th purchaser but a lot of the time it is a lot quicker than that to receive your email informing you if you have won or not.


    If you win then within a few hours of receiving the winning email and claiming your money back the money is in your PayPal account - it is so easy.


    If you aren't successful and receive a losing email - you still receive 50p that goes into your bonus money account and once you receive your first win then your bonus money is automatically added to it.


    The extra £300 I have received has come in so handy just before Xmas - you don't have to wait any length of time for the money to become payable and the payment is instant.

I think it's probably for the same reason I prefer putting money in premium bonds vs a bog standard savings account. It's more exciting! I may find that in the long run it doesn't pay off, but so far I'm making far more than I ever did with Quidco or Topcashback.

    I joined Boom25 in July this year and have already received £136.91 in payouts! So far Iíve made 37 purchases and have received all my money back on purchases made to Superdrug, Ocado, Perfume Shopping and Bunches. Itís fun and unlike Topcashback or Quidco as you stand a 1 in 25 chance in winning the full cost of your purchases. Lately there have even been occasions where you could win as high as 1 in 5 purchases so keep an eye out on these offers and make sure you follow Boom25 on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram to get a heads up on these amazing offers. Some payouts are quick and some take longer as the retailers need to ensure there are no returns on purchases made. Even when you donít win you still receive a 50p bonus.

    Iíve also made contact with Boom25 on a couple of occasions where my purchases have not tracked and have been amazed at their quick response. Please ensure you clear your cache before making purchases as this could result in your purchases not being tracked.

    I've never noticed if you can do this with other cashback websites, but it seems to work with reserve and collect as well. I've reserved an item for collection from Curry's today and it's tracked it as a purchase. I imagined it would only work if I was to pay online, but it seems that's not the case!
