TopCashBack brings double savings with daily deals sites
TopCashBack has capitalised on the growing popularity of daily deals websites by adding Groupon, KGB Deals and Living Social to its own money-saving site.
As consumers increasingly scour the internet for more ways to save money on an every-opportunity-possible basis, TopCashBack, the UK's most generous cashback site, has introduced the likes of Groupon, KGB Deals and Living Social to its platform, which offers consumers the opportunity to earn cashback on top of savings made through daily deals. A vast amount of money is spent through daily deals websites. Industry insiders report that UK consumers spent £292 million overall during the last half of 2011. To date £2.65 million has been spent with Groupon via TopCashBack, netting members £165,000 in total.
Natasha-Rachel Smith, Consumer Affairs Editor from TopCashBack (topcashback.co.uk) said, "This is an absolutely fantastic way for consumers to get a double whammy of savings on every day, and luxury, goods and services. If organised and disciplined, consumers who are prepared to check the daily deals pages regularly can save up to 90% on walk-in costs for things they had planned to fork out for anyway, and then by buying these offers through TopCashBack they earn money too, effectively making it a double-discount. It's an outstanding method to get paid as you spend.
"However consumers must be alert and organised to ensure they actually use their deals. Always read the terms and conditions of each offer and don't miss the deadline for taking it up. Buying a deal, no matter how much money consumers' are saving compared to the full price value, but not redeeming it in time is an obvious and unnecessary waste of cash. Diarise expiry dates or print out deal vouchers and stick them somewhere visible so they're not forgotten about."
Natasha-Rachel concluded, "Each deal often lasts for only 24 hours, hence there is always something new. Lately the retail sector has been taking a beating but the growth of daily deals sites has played, and will continue to play, an imperative role in improving consumer confidence and drive footfall towards the high street. It's a great example of how offline businesses are modernising and adapting with the evolving retail environment by working hand-in-hand with the web to get their tills ringing."
