Topcashback TopGiftCards Help

Hi, I have been using Topcashback for a few years and usually just go through the regular route of finding a retailer and clicking the link to receive cashback.

However I notice that if I buy a "topgiftcard" for the retailer I am intending to purchase from the cash back is higher.

Regular cashback is 2.5% but if I buy a topgiftcard for said retailer cashback is 7%. In my head this seems to make sense but I am not sure if this is ok to do.

I am making the purchase either way but I am just wondering if this is a good way to boost the cashback.

Does anyone regularly do this and can offer advice? Has anyone encountered problems using topgiftcards? I am hesitant as this is a highish value purchase and I don't want to be stuck with a gift card I can't use.

Sorry if this question has already been asked but I couldn't find anything in the search.

  • I emagine it is legit. It sounds similar to an app I’ve recently started using called Jam Doughnut, where you get cash back from buying vouchers

    HI, I've used this before! It's legit. It's a TopCashback company. The gift cards usually come through on email within 10 minutes of purchasing and the cashback is very quick too.

    I've not use the Gift Card option before but decided to do it this time because of the uplift. How does it appear - I assume its a emailed code that you can use online the next time you shop with that retailer.

    Thanks

    Just realised that having done my supermarket online for the last 2 years, the supermarket I use does cash back, wish Id looked earlier!!!!!

    Hi All, just popping back on to let you know that the TopGiftCard thing worked.

    I ordered a TopGiftCard and was sent the code via email almost immediately. I then just shopped as normal on the retailer website and used the voucher code at checkout :)

    The cashback became payable really quick too.
