    TopCashBack's seasonal "find the hummingbird" competition is back! This time it's called "Summer Treats", but the idea's the same. Click around on their site, and eventually you'll find a hummingbird. One clue is given each day for somewhere you'll find it, otherwise seems a bit (but not fully) random

    Just finding the hummingbird isn't enough, but winning a quid or so is fairly easy. I'm at 20p winnings so far...

    For those who missed it, the first few clues point to:
    (In other cashback competition news, my Quidco Ride The Wave winnings went payable a few weeks ago, and I got the few quid to my bank account!)

    Thanks for that. I'm on 20p winnings too. Woohoo!

    I waste so much time on these stupid things! :oops:

    Topcashback site seems to be struggling today, I keep seeing the oops message a picture of a dog, or waiting ages for the game banner to load.

    Anyway, 10p pocketed so far.

    If you want a lazy way of figuring out today's clue, just check the list of Trending merchants, the top one is almost always today's featured retailer. Then just drop in a couple of times throughout the day and click random retailers, as you usually get extra hummingbirds littered around the site.

    Cheers!

    I made nothing from RIde the Wave. Despite only playing it a couple of times, I thought it was brilliant and would love to see a return.

    The top trending thing only seems to apply by late morning. Earlier than that, if you check their facebook page, people will have commented there to say which one it is :)

    Today's is Phillips (which is already top of 'Trending') :p
    I'm 50% of the way to £20, and 33% of the way to £5
    High stakes stuff, indeed!

    Won 10p today, that's it now as from all previous competitions you never win anything more than one.

    I'm still on absolutely nothing so far, anyone else having better luck?

    If you were wondering what today's clue was all about, the answer is FitFlop: https://www.topcashback.co.uk/fit-flop/ (nope, I've never heard of them either!)

    I took part in TCB's very first Hummingbird competition in late 2016. I spent a huge amount of time on it. There were eight categories of sweets and you had to collect all the sweets in each category to win something. WIthin a week I'd collected most of them and was one sweet short in every category. I was on to a winner, I thought.

    I then spent the next two months searching and found not a single sweet. Oh, I found plenty of hummingbirds, but these just gave 'extra chances' to win the big prize in the competition, which, needless to say, I didn't win.The whole thing was a complete waste of time.

    The designers of these competitions are experts at dragging you in and keeping you playing. TCB just wants loads and loads and LOADS of hits on their website. But the fact remains, you won't win much more than pence unless you're incredibly lucky. I don't know anyone who ever did.... I'd pack it in if I were you!

    You're just saying that to increase your chances of winning ;)
    I'm going to plough on wasting my time every day, and , oh crap, it's finished and I won 10p. Think you might be right, litefoot!

    In fact, I might have to rig an InsideFlyer giveaway at this rate given my current luck. (For the avoidance of doubt, obviously I do not actually participate in InsideFlyer giveaways!!! :) )

    My £3 bonus earned this weekend went straight to 'payable' this morning. Minimum effort, maximum reward - now that's the kind of TCB promo I like! Infinitely preferable to hummingbirds!

    The hummingbirds are back! I'm 25% of the way to £100 on the first day! This is my time, I can feel it!

    People aren't still falling for these hummingbird promos are they?! I bet that you don't get £100. Sorry.
