There appear to be very few restrictions – any merchant will do, as long as you spend at least a fiver…  Depending on the merchant, however, you might need to take into account VAT, such that the amount reported to Topcashback is greater than £5.

In cases such as this one, I typically just cancel and re-book a hotel reservation, or just buy something cheap that I would normally buy elsewhere…   After all… £2.50 cashback on a £5+ purchase can be a pretty substantial rebate…

      Yep – lots do (including myself)! With Christmas on the way, I’m buying stuff every day anyway and would click through from a cashback site for pretty much all of those purchases. £2.50 for 2 extra clicks (5 seconds?) is a great return. Rebooking a hotel takes maybe 2 mins or less – not quite as compelling, but still equivalent to a pretty decent hourly rate!

        Wowzers, spending even 2 mins cancelling and rebooking a hotel is crazy (absolutely guarantee there’s no way you can check the rate is still valid, log into tcb, navigate to the correct dates, log in and cancel, rebook and enter payment details, receive confirmation in five mins let alone two). There’s so many ways to make so much more cash with MS or similar pursuits this seems pretty damn desperate!

          I would argue that MS brings its own challenges – in the UK (best case scenario in terms of direct comparison, afaik?) is Amex PCCC at 1.25%, minus £25 annual fee. Even if we don’t factor the fee, £2.50 is £200 of MS – on an Amex, which means some of the more obvious MS options aren’t available. TopCashback and Quidco have similar offers to this one regularly (and if you collect miles, there are frequent AA/Alaska/United/etc portal bonuses you could opt for instead too). Basically,this side of stuff obviously isn’t big money, but it’s extremely low hanging – and really does only take a couple of minutes, with zero risk.

          MS in the UK (particularly at a scale where it is worth the float/risk/time) is considerably more complicated – and certainly isn’t for everyone.

          I maintain that (a pretty regular) £2.50 for 2 mins ‘work’ – i.e. while on the sofa watching tv at home – is a solid return.

          Will MS at an advanced level net you (MUCH 😉 ) bigger returns? Of course it will. But, it’s comparing apples and aircraft.

    In less than 5 minutes I bought a £5 gift card from TopGiftCards and almost immediately tracked £0.20 cashback and the £2.50 bonus. Better than 50% rebate, but ultimately just a free £2.70 without leaving my sofa.

    If you can scale that to £270 without leaving your sofa, then you’re doing better than me. But I suspect that you put in hours and hours beforehand to work out all of the potential issues with your MS scheme. It might work now… until it doesn’t… and you’ll have to put in the hours just to get your float back.

    Anyhow, one thing that travel hackers tend to care about is free money on any scale, whether it’s a 50p coin on the ground, a simple TCB promo or a scale-able MS scheme.
